I keep telling myself that I am going to by both a Mosin rifle and revovler when I have the money.

Neat, rugged, and historical

ColonelTomb 09-14-2012 02:09 AM

The Nagant revolver is certainly interesting, but other than that it's basically useless. It uses very rare and expensive ammo (had to special order it @
$35 a box), the double action pull is a solid 20 pounds, and it's difficult and time consuming to load and unload. Even if you managed to get components, I would imagine that the cartridge would be quite difficult to reload. These are pretty much the reasons why I'm selling the gun. S&W Shooter, I've never shot/held a Redhawk but my dad's got an S&W M29 with an 8-3/8" barrel. I'd imagine they'd be fairly similar. It's an awesome gun, and the first time we ever shot it was an outdoor range. As soon as we touched off that first round, the entire range went silent and people looked around for the source of the muzzle blast. Pretty incredible.

Hey, at least you don't have the 7.5mm chambered Nagant Husqvarna made, like my neighbor does. It took me a full day to find ammo for it after he asked me to look around for some.


The Redhawk is pretty sweet. I've only shot it once or twice, and that was several years ago, but I remember liking it.

That is why the people I know who own them keep extra cylinders for shooting more conventional ammo out of it.

Thanks for clarifying that, I didn't expect them to leave Russia in as large amounts as the Mosin rifle, and the rare outdated ammo doesn't help either.

Also, you have no idea how large of a pain in the ass sourcing an airsoft revolver is. Either they don't sell because they're shitty, or the company makes limited production runs for the model (with no re-releases).

Jcordell 09-14-2012 06:18 PM

Okay here it is. For those who like the older all steel S&W autos. My Model 745. I'll be getting it out to the range in the next few days. $375 OTD. Smith & Wesson only made 5,000 of these between 1986-1990. Single action only. 45acp. Adjustable trigger stop. Match grade barrel. A target version of the Model 645. It looks bulky but it has a very good feel to it. They're hard to find now and in the opinion of my wife it's ugly. Well it isn't pretty, but it's becoming a collectible. And I collect Smith & Wessons.

Loving the two-tone. Those things are tanks.

Yeah I had long considered getting a .32 ACP cylinder for it, but never got around to it. It can fire and chamber .32 H&R mag and .32 S&W long/short in the factory cylinder (and I recently acquired a ton of .32 mag) but the gun is just so uncomfortable to shoot that I just honestly don't think it's worth keeping it anymore. If you like that sort of thing, more power to you. Just my 2 cents.

Jcordell, loving that S&W, man. I'm not really a huge fan of the S&W autos, but that one is damn sexy.

Jcordell 09-14-2012 11:40 PM

Thanks. I vaugely remember them back in the Eighties, but I wasn't really into S&W autos back then. I was all about Beretta 92's, 1911A1's and Browning High-Powers. They were an expensive pistol back then.I believe Smith's MSRP was $800 and that was twenty-five years ago. Now I see them selling for between $800-$900 dollars so $375 was a good deal.

k9870 09-15-2012 04:20 PM

ordered a blue label gen 4 g19 with trijicon sights

Well If anything it's something to grab for the historical value. Anyways your not going to get any resale revalue out of something you can snatch up for $100.

Eh, all I really want to do is break even and clear out some room in the gun safe. I think I'm going to use the money to Mag-Na-Port my .44 Magnum Contender barrel. Thing is lighter than a revolver, and the recoil is...well, substantial to say the least.

S&Wshooter 09-24-2012 09:50 PM

I think I'm going to sell my 6906. It's a neat little pistol, but I like my 459 better and don't really see myself doing much with it.

S&Wshooter 10-05-2012 10:46 PM

I brought my 6906 to the indoor range to test fire it because I'm about to trade it, and ended up having to get the gunsmith to polish out a bur on the feed ramp, so now it runs perfectly.


I rented a H&K Mk.23, and it was very disappointing. Trigger sucked, accuracy sucked, handling sucked, etc.

So are you going to keep it now?

k9870 10-06-2012 03:56 PM

ordered hogue wood cocobol grips, the ones that are checkered with the stripe cap, cant wait. (for 686p)

The people it was made specifically for avoid it like an AIDs-infested hooker. What did you expect? :p

k9870 10-07-2012 05:34 PM

Ive heard its a great range gun, its its rediculous size that makes it a poor carry choice. I want to go back to manchester firing line, I loved the mp5a3 i shot theyve also got 2 uzis a thomson a sterling and a mp40. And then semi autos like a socom 16 inch vz58 and of course ars and sig 556s and apparently there working on getn ak. Can rent belt feds if call ahead and make appointment

The problem is that being a good paper puncher doesn't necessarily make something a combat weapon. That's one of the reasons early M16s had so many problems.

The guy I was going to trade it to ended up backing out of the deal, so I'll probably keep it if I can't find anyone else who wants it. I figure it'll be something I could use as my "car gun" after a while if I hold on to it

Nope. It sucks as a range gun, too

Yes it would make a good car gun.

k9870 10-08-2012 02:58 PM

cant wait for my new blade tech and grips. Then my smith would just need a moon clip and chamfering job and it would be perfect, pretty sweet as it is though:D

I brought it with me the other day when I was running a few errands, and it actually fits in the space that the CD-changer used to occupy in the console of my truck. So my Expedition pretty much has a built in holster that works perfectly with the 6906.

Excalibur 10-10-2012 03:14 AM

I forget. Whoever bought the USP and ever thought of getting a light for it. Try this.

That sounds...interesting to say the least. Never had any experience with a belt fed, but I did have the opportunity to shoot a suppressed Uzi and some custom full auto AR SBR thing. Pretty sweet.

Between the M60E3/E4,M240 and M249...I prefer the M60 series. While its not so great as sustained fire as the M240 it's a nastier beast than the M249.

I really love Oregon.

My God-son is getting a .22 tomorrow for his birthday, which will be his first firearm, so I bought him a little under 1,000 rounds of ammo.

k9870 10-20-2012 11:56 PM

Does it even work? I handled a P64 only once (I come from a cop family and it was the official police pistol for a long time over here) and I can hardly say a good thing about it.

Also, I'm expanding my airsoft armory. A S&W M10 replica I ordered just left Hong Kong.

Unfortunately the Garand (a 1944 Springfield Armory btw) came with no en bloc clips so I have not had the chance yet to shoot it.

Becareful with the old Lady, I've read that Garands don't like the modern loadings of the .30-06 cartridge.
