that guy is my rolemodel!
Just put a "target" rifle in lay-away.
Its a mauser action (7.92x57)... with a barrel that is about 1" in diameter from chamber to muzzle 27" long... no taper whatsoever, extended and rear canted bolt handle, harris bipod and a decent scope.
Too heavy to hunt with, but it will be interesting none the less.
i hope the pic is a better explanation.
Not much on your choice of calibers willis - but that is a very pretty rifle.
It's not a hippie it's an undercover DEA agent. It's from Leon.
i know, but he is corrupt as hell, so i still lurve him :]
It's a hippie cop. He dresses the same in the movie all the time. If you watch the movie you see he is high. (Just like his boss.)
and he kills children
I have quite a bit of 7.92x57 ammo (for a couple of M48s).
The previous owner was able to get 2" groups at 200 yards with surplus ammo.
If its good enough for the Wehrmacht....
I also ended up with an Arisaka rebarreld for 30-06. Its part of my plan to pilfer my brothers useless stash of 30-06 ammo. He was buying two boxes or more a week from walmart for a couple years for his garand before he found out he cant shoot hunting ammo in it safely.
How was that effect created, engraved? Etched with acid? Either way it's a beautiful finish.
Really nice engraving.
Last weekend, I was at a show and saw the following:
.41 Double action Colt Lightning (1878 IIRC)
They were all in Wood cases under a glass case and were marked "not for sale... no, really, I am not selling them"
it made me laugh.
They all looked real to me. They had years of nicks, dings etc. and had 0-2% original finish.
Definitely not modern repros (though I am not aware of any repro double action lightnings.
That's all hand engraving of the finest quality
There is a severe shortage of Mossberg 590A1s, I am a bit puzzled by it.
Makes me a bit ill, because a few months ago they were found in great abundance and I decided to wait for a bit. At this point it is virtually impossible to find them anywhere online and no gun store near me can order them. The 20" variant I linked at least, the 18.5" ones are still around. Makes me want to think about turning coat and jumping into Remington's camp.
It sounds like they either geared up to make more hunting shotguns for the fall for all the tweens or 12 year old Hunger games fans.... or someone put in a huge contract for riot guns.
Neither would shock me. Watching KSG-12s sell for $2,000 on gunbroker has reaffirmed my belief that people are mad as hatters. I wanted one, but not for no where near that gouged selling price. Get your new tacticool gun tossed into the new Call of Duty and ensure that for the first year of its life it will be bought at two-three times what it is worth by people destined to turn it into a safe queen!
I will just get a basic mossy 500 or rem 870 and tinker with it myself to get it where I want it to be. If the AR-15 is the Barbie Doll of firearms in general because of its accessories, the 870 and 500 are runners up in the shotgun field for sure.
Yeah, I hear ya. I was considering a KSG myself, but trying to get one at a reasonable price is near impossible. So it's back to looking around at others.
The mossberg is nice gun, and yes, if you want to play around and accessorize it, it's the way to go.
On the other hand, if you're like me and are a bit on the no-frills side, and just need something for home defense, the inexpensive alternative is a Maverick Model 88. It's made by Mossberg's Maverick Arms unit and has interchangeable barrels and a few other pieces with the 500. The Security model has a 18.5" barrel with six shots.
The only thing I'm going to do is a flashlight mount and an elastic side saddle on the stock.
No, but a good spam-bot filter would be nice.
Actually mr.Spambot, they might need some to conceal their identity while snappin' into that Slim Jim. Oops, i'm sorry, i forgot, don't ask don't tell.
