Hard to beat a nice Ruger 10/22 for the money. Easy to customize into a great .22 target rifle.

SKS is a great rifle. Reliable and built like a tank! It's made to upgrade, kinda like the Mosin Nagant.

Looks like all 5 of those nice grandfathered 15 rd mags for the P94 will have to be gone by next July (CA SB-1446 no commentary on this here, just making the observation).

I've been really happy with the Aimpoint PRO optic.

Agree 100% I love my Aimpoint scopes. They are excellent!! Did you buy those lens caps separately or did they come with your Aimpoint scope? I like the flip ups, helps prevent loosing the caps.

#162 3 years ago
Quoted from Kronlar:

On the AR side, my two rigs are both SBR with suppressors. 300BLK and 9MM.

Isn't the subsonic suppressed .300 fantastic! First time I loaded some I couldn't believe it. Totally no need for hearing protection. All you could hear was the action of the bolt and the bullet hitting the paper target. CRAZY!

Is there a specific type of foam I should buy for replacement?

Yes, there is replacement foam available. You can cut it to the size/shapes needed. Shop Amazon. Good selection and prices.
You can find it by "gun case foam", "Pelican foam" and others.

#193 2 years ago

I think it's cool when you have some history on a firearm. Colt provides a great service in tracing back their guns.

#201 2 years ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

Hence why when you do post never show serial numbers

If they are legal, why would that really matter? (honest question)
I can go in my local gun shops and write down serial numbers all day long.

#203 2 years ago
Quoted from Phantom1911:

But to go along with the ammo porn, here's some ammo making porn.

Nothing wrong with posting nice equipment! I use an RCBS progressive. Not as nice as that... (looks like a Dillon).
It's the only way you can make custom rounds. I can't buy subsonic .300 as well as I can make them on the press.
And for long range shooting... No way I can get the accuracy from my .300 Win Mag with off the shelf ammo that I can get with hand loads.
I used to hand load for IHMSA competition using a Thompson Center in 7mm TCU. Try to find that load at your local gun shop.

#204 2 years ago
Quoted from DeathHimself:

There are several reasons why you shouldn't publically have your serial number exposed in unsecured public access, pretty much the same why you wouldn't want your cars license plate exposed.
Yes you can write down all the serials from the FFL all you want, the same way you can go to a car dealership and write down all the vins you want of the cars you looked at. Once it's registered to you it's a total different story for your security reasons.

I understand concern. It's a real mixed bag of opinions. (Imagine that here on Pinside!!)
You can write down my license plate if you want, just catch me (or anyone else) on the road. I believe I even posted it on the Pinside Car Club thread! Here's the link!
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinside-car-club/page/9
Go online and you can get gun serial numbers by the boat load on about any gun auction site.
I may be just waiting for the fall or maybe I'm just now too old to worry about it.

#207 2 years ago
Quoted from Kronlar:

A couple of the main reasons not to post serials were always 1) not wanting govt to tie the number to you if it wasn't already, and 2) people turning in the number to their police dept as stolen. They could then say they saw you posting it for sale and you lose it if you can't provide proof of purchase.
I always thought both were pretty far fetched scenarios, but those are a couple of the reasons used regularly.

Absolutely agree with both points if they apply.
1- Don't post a serial number if you haven't had it registered to you through the ATF.
2- Ditto the above reason

Quoted from woody24:

Anyone have any experience with places milling a sight onto a gun? I've got a Colt Mustang Pocketlite, but the front sight is CNC'd with the slide. The rear sight is a dovetail sight. Just curious if I want to go through the trouble and money to have someone add a dovetail to the front sight.

Great little gun. Personally with a small pocket gun and the likely distance to target (pretty darn close), I'd leave the front sight as-is.

My pocket carry is the similar P938. Although it has a dove tailed front sight, I've not yet found the need to adjust it.

Quoted from Nevus:

The twelve year old has discovered WW2...

Great way to teach your 12 yo about the war history. Probably my favorite era of guns.

Quoted from Dante:

I would love to do some of my AK mags, as those things always look like they came from the bottom of some wet/rusty Russian ship.

GREAT gun. I love the Pap AK pistol. The Bulgarian polymer mags are nice and help take care of that rusty Russian ship effect.
The Pap is also great for an SBR conversion.

The new Zombie Hoard fix. 9mm AR conversion.

#258 2 years ago
Quoted from Dante:

Yep, I have a bunch of those too. But for the price, you can't beat these old beat up rusty Russian mags from the local gun show

But isnt' there a tax stamp/fee involved? Something like $200/$300? Someone at the range told me to pick up the fore-arm brace for ~$125 as it will help with your accuracy

Yes, $200 tax stamp and months of waiting. The braces work great for that added bit of accuracy. @_@

#260 2 years ago
Quoted from navajas:

.. On the other hand I am currently awaiting my suppressor to clear. :-/

Which suppressor are you waiting for? I picked up a Rugged Surge 762. I liked it cause it worked great for everything 5.56 - 300 Win Mag.

#263 2 years ago
Quoted from Strummy:

Connecticut gun laws are almost as bad as California these days. Dam there's some beautiful guns out there that I just can't have!

Which shotgun is that? Looks a lot like my Winchester Defender. I took off the composite stock and bought a new barrel and some wood from Midwestern Gun Works.

IMG_0660 (resized).JPG

#267 2 years ago
Quoted from John_I:

The next few years is probably a good time to stock up though.

Agree. Current ammo prices are at a "buy" level if you need some. Sales going on every day. The political climate is good but that can change in short order.

#270 2 years ago

Yes. The absolute best finish to apply at home is Norell's Moly Resin. I have applied it to two AR's and two shotguns and it rocks!

If I wasn't about 3k miles away, I'd take it right off your hands.

Quoted from navajas:

Wolf is shit, no doubt, (again, I bought it as a young man and didn't know better) but no ammo is going to fix that barrel. I can ship it, have an FFL you like? I'm not joking. Six magazines, Ruger stock, folding stock, the works.

I've heard complaints about the barrel getting hot and causing accuracy problems. I think that's probably why someone came up with the idea of adding a barrel stabilizer. (:

My AR-15 collection. The A2 without the scope I bought last fall. Got it home and checked the numbers, it was one I sold in 1990.

Nice! Such a customizable gun. Which calibers so far?

#333 2 years ago

The Beowulf is a fun round. I have a couple and a VERS 50 that makes it nice to shoot.

#335 2 years ago
Quoted from navajas:

I honestly used to be just like you man, every time someone came up with a legitimate criticism of my beloved 30 I had a list of excuses / explanation / mods / anecdotes with which to answer them. I was *this* close to sending this thing off to Accuracy Systems and dropping $1000+ to make it sweet before I came to my senses. Good money after bad.
I love the action, but that's why I have my Garand. Want my 30? It's yours. Just let me know.

Oh hell no, you're absolutely right. I don't like it that much! I just think it's a good gun for $600. Don't even know if the stabilizer bar really makes any difference but it was cheap and looks kinda cool. (:
What exactly was the issue with the gun other than considering it a piece of shit?

I agree 100% on the Garand. Absolute work of art.

#337 2 years ago
Quoted from Travish:

I paid $250. Great rifle.

I hope they lift the ban on historic firearms. It would be great to pickup more of these wonderful guns at nice prices. My first .30 carbine was around $150! I paid around $350 for my first Garand. Regret selling it and paid nearly $1k for my most recent one. I won't sell it again.

#346 2 years ago
Quoted from bronco-jon:

I really don't know enough about guns to know if they are the real deal or not. I have an opportunity to buy this Colt .45 only thing that worries me is not knowing if it's a real Colt 45 or not.
I have done some research on it and have mostly found out to watch out for fakes.
I have been reading up on some gun forums but don't really feel like creating an account just to ask questions when I already have one here and it seems like a few of you on here know your stuff about fire arms.
Is it possible to tell if this is a real Colt .45 just by the pics?
your help would be appreciated.

Have you tried plugging in the serial number and see what you get?
http://www.colt.com/Customer-Services/Serial-Number-Lookup

#348 2 years ago

Yeah, it will probably list several but I think one should be similar to what your firearm is. I have a first gen SAA 32 WCF. I forked out the money for a Colt letter tracing the gun to where it was originally shipped and sold. Pretty cool Colt can do that.

I think it would be worth your time to post on a Colt forum with folks that can probably answer your question with those pics you have.

Anyone care to share their thoughts on "maintenance" plan. Looking through the safes the other day and realizing many are probably way overdue for a good lube job. I'd hate to see storage damage set in.

Quoted from navajas:

Do you just load them by hand? She can't do that either. To be honest, I really struggle. I feel like I'm missing something obvious or I'm just a semi-auto pussy.

Yeah, I load them in the clips by hand. The groove in the 45 ACP cart snaps in place with mod pressure. You can use a bench for leverage. Easier than loading most mags.

The tool slides over the spent cart and is removed with a twist. Falls into the tool.

I tend to load a bunch in one sitting. Kinda like loading up 500 rnds into Enbloc clips at a time.

The 84F Cheetah. Infamously less known for being used in the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin in '95.

A lot of cool old guns out there for cheap.
A nice old Stevens Favorite in 32 Long Rimfire. Serial #52. The ammo costs almost as much as the gun. (:

The Sten is so cool. Shows what you can do going back to basics. Ok, very basic. (:

Oh man, what a great memory. I had one very similar as a kid. Super pickup.

Quoted from Travish:

Looks like a 1911 except the hollow recoil spring guide looks weird. It's definitely a .45 though.

If it were the Joker, that's where his flag would pop out.

Quoted from jhozeska:

Mine has an Echo trigger. Is that a bad thing?

How do you like it? I put one on one of my ARs but haven't tried it out 'live' yet.
An echo trigger on the Beowulf should be fun!

#566 1 year ago

A little bit off topic but still in the gun hobby. If you can't afford one of the big guns, make it in miniature. (:
From one of my favorite WWII films.

Classic German 9s.
They stamped and marked every part. Obsessed with detail.

Sold my original first gen Barrett.
My rebound gun was the Savage in 300 Winn Mag. I liked it a lot better!
With Timney replacement trigger.

Have a few glasses of wine, makes it easier to push the "buy" button. (:

What’s your weakness? For me it’s the lever guns. I love them. This Winchester mod 92 in 38-40 is a blast to shoot.

How long you been waiting? I haven't paid a lot of attention to them, seems like it's been a long time but at least they haven't gone silent.

When I see a range report picture like that all I can think about is "glad I don't have to clean all those".

LOL! I have since quit taking more than about 2.
With my OCD, I have to clean every single damn part when I get home.

Ruger revolvers are great. Wish I had never sold my .44 Blackhawk.

My Mini-30 is my only Ruger now. Some don't like the Mini-30 but I love it!
