A real Trijicon ACOG 4X32 costs about $1200 bucks - has anyone ever done a side by side with the $50 knock off to see if you have a $1150 difference?

#1452 1 year ago
Quoted from Waderade812:

Well if Fulltilt endorses it I will give one a try as well. How long did it take to arrive?

It's been so long I can't remember. It wasn't long though, like 3 weeks or so.
Don't blame me if you get a piece of Chinese junk. (:

The $1200 ones are a little blurry on the right side

At 60 bucks it is just something fun to have. I'm expecting a cool looking red dot sight. When it arrives. And hey 3 weeks isn't to bad.

It always seems stuff like this can never hold a zero. But it's fun chasing your point of impact around.

#1455 1 year ago

Anyone ever shot one of these ahhhh….thick credit card looking things? I was going to try holding one but was drooling all over a 10mm revolver instead.

Looks like they come in 22LR and 22WMR…which might be a little more punishing.

Finally took my prototype Remington CSR to the range! Shooting steel at 400 yards was too easy, need to find a place with a longer range!

is that an aftermarket trigger?

Quoted from Kneissl:

Yes, it's this one:

#1463 1 year ago

At first glance I was thinking that was one of those binary triggers they made for the Ruger 10/22s

#1464 1 year ago

Fantastic!! The Fightlite MCR Belt Fed might give it a run for the money!
Wouldn't it be fun to find out.

Now that armslist charges to be a member, anyone using another forum to trade/buy/sell?

#1466 1 year ago

Gunbroker is my standard still.

#1467 1 year ago
Quoted from robertmee:

Now that armslist charges to be a member, anyone using another forum to trade/buy/sell?

I use GunBroker, ar15.com, snipershide.com, m14forum.com, forums.thecmp.org; usually in that order, but it depends on what I'm selling or looking for. Be advised that you need to build up a reputation on all of these sites if you plan on selling anything.

On GunBroker, buyers avoid sellers who are NR (No Rating) and some sellers will require you contact them before buying if you're an NR.

As for the various forums, read their forum rules, since different forums have different requirements for buy/sell/trade. When selling on forums, target the forum your item has a better chance of selling. For example, when I sell Mk13 stuff, I post it on Sniper's Hide, since that's where the majority of bolt action shooters (military clones, PRS, NRL, etc.) hang out.

Keep the same username across all these sites, it helps build your reputation (my username is the same here as it is on all the sites I previously listed). Becoming a member of different forums will definitely broaden your horizons within the firearms world!

You’ll find me on Gunbroker. “Rensal”
Long story on that user name.

Look for some cool stuff for sale soon.

Hey guys, anybody feel like looking at these low resolution photos and seeing if anything can be identified? Sorry - this is all I have for now.

Wife's uncle passed away and this was found in his attic - cousin settling the estate wants nothing to do with these but wasn't really sure what her next step should be. I knew the guy for 30 years and never knew him to fire a weapon, so not sure if these were more curios to him than usable guns. His BIL was a retired Lowell, MA detective so maybe the matching revolvers were service weapons?

I'm going up there over 4th of July so I can probably give them a good inspection and get better pics if needed. Not really interested in doing FFL transfers on a bunch of junk guns and I think we can agree the Raven .25 likely not even worth it

Deleted a few posts. Friendly reminder to keep politics out of the thread. Rest assured there are a lot of people that would love to bait the happy users in this thread to turn this thread a political direction so they can then push to close it...

I’ll give it a shot on the ones I can figure out.
Looks like mostly cheaper guns though.

There’s a few things that are ok.
The revolver in the last photo I’m guessing is a Smith & Wesson 38 Special. That’s a fine gun if so. Don’t know what the others are in that photo.

Second to last photo looks like an older Red Ridder BB gun. Not sure what the lever action is, but might be worth checking out.
Looks like there’s a third rifle in a soft case as well?

Third to last photo has a couple single barrel shotguns. Most likely those are worth very little.
Don’t know what the other rifles are from that photo.

4th photo from the bottom has another Smith & Wesson revolver that’s probably good. The semi auto pistol might be a Browning Buck Mark 22? If so, that’s a great target pistol (especially for starting out kids).
Not sure on the older revolver.

The raven is a cheap little 25 automatic that was produced in mass. That said, it’s still worth like $150-$200 in this day and age. At least this one is not the cheap black finish (which is actually paint rather than blueing) and slightly better than the normal black one.

I don’t know anything about older revolvers. Maybe someone else can chime in on the ones in the briefcase.

The first photo looks like it has a couple keepers. The lever action and the pump shotgun might be ok depending on what they are.

#1475 1 year ago

Thanks for looking. I dont hunt so really only hoping to get a decent .38 and Remington or Winchester shotgun out of this

#1476 1 year ago
Quoted from boscokid:

Yeah, if you’re just looking to pick out a couple for plinking or home defense, I would go with one of those Smith & Wessons.
I’m guessing they are both 38 specials?, But the one in the photo with other handguns might be a larger caliber.
The pump shotgun isn’t really ideal for home defense, but would get the job done.
Looks like it’s going to have at least a 28 inch barrel on it and more of a bird gun.

#1477 1 year ago

Do I see a K98 Mauser middle gun in that first pic? Also (same gun?) another on 2nd pic with original sling. I’d love to see more of those/that one. Some interesting old firearms.

#1478 1 year ago

Also looks like a Mauser in 4th pic from top - top gun, and same gun in 3rd pic from bottom - 3rd gun down.

#1479 1 year ago

5th photo down bottom rifle is a Krag, 1898 or thereabout.

Anybody have any thoughts on the urban carry g3 holster? Reviews either love it or hate it, perhaps body type and wardrobe preferences have a lot to do with it.
Im considering it but would love to hear some opinions...

Quoted from cosmokramer:

I'm too fat to use most in the waist holsters. I put my P938 in a Sticky holster and put it in my pocket.

#1482 1 year ago

I use a Desantis Super Fly with a G43. Pocket carry much easier as long as your pistol is truly compact or sub, I wouldn't even try to conceal carry my G19

#1483 1 year ago

Nothing beats a crossbreed for IWB holsters. I have four and love them.

#1484 1 year ago
Quoted from LargemouthAss:

+1 very comfortable holster! I use that for IWB carry 4 o’clock position.

If I go appendix carry, I use Sticky Holster.

#1485 1 year ago

Not to muddy the waters but I've been using an Aliengear IWB for my CCW G48. Pricey but they're very nice and may be worth looking at.

#1486 1 year ago

Went out and got a gen 5 G17 MOS. Much better fit for my big and fat hands. Hoping to fire it this week. Red dot will be coming soon. It will be for home defense. I have a CCW G48 with Shield Arms 20 round mags.

The annual Scout Sniper Association rifle raffle is going on right now and the winning ticket gets drawn on July 4th! Last year we raffled off a Mk13 Mod 7, this year we're going old school with a Vietnam War era USMC M40!

Even though this rifle is an M40 clone, it was built with an attention to detail using very rare original parts. The parts were graciously donated and assembled by Marty Bordson (Badger Ordnance).

You can buy raffle tickets and find more information about this amazing rifle over on the Scout Sniper Association's website:

I'll answer any questions you guys might have about this rifle raffle, just post them here in this thread.

Does anyone have a CMMG Banshee?

#1491 1 year ago

Coworker dropped this off last night for me to play with. I think the ammo is worth more than the gun right now?

Anyone get hands on a savage impulse yet?

#1493 1 year ago
Quoted from Kneissl:

Anyone get hands on a savage impulse yet?
https://www.savagearms.com/impulse

Just watched the video on their website. My initial reaction, was "cool, straight pull, something the Europeans have been doing for almost a century."

Then my reaction was "WTF is this insane Hexbolt locking lug shit and WTF is up with the swapping charging handle?!"

About a decade ago, Savage really reinvented their company; trimmed the fat and focused on an inexpensive, yet quality product (something Remington should have also done, but didn't). They were one of the first companies to make an affordable rifle that could shoot very accurately at distance and/or compete in some competitions. Their 110 Elite Precision competes directly with Ruger's RPR, these companies are doing an excellent job competing with each other and bring new shooters into the field. I'm excited to see if Savage brings some of this tech into the competition field (like how Anschutz dominates with their 1827 Fortner)!

Competition brings us innovation, it's good for everyone!

Edit to add (after some research I should have done before getting excited about this new Savage rifle): Savage didn't reinvent the wheel, their Hexbolt design a close copy of the German Heym SR 30 rifle's bolt locking bearings that's been around for the past 2 decades.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heym_SR_30

I don't know how it preforms, I was really excited about what I thought Savage was bringing to the table in the form of new technology. That said, I still hope they can harness this design and make something great!

Ahlmans two days ago….

It’s pretty bad.

I could get 1lb of H110 for $40 if I wanted to. That’s the most common powder I recognized.
