The guy un-flaked, and has a Browning BDA .380 I want bad along with a pile of revolvers (and Colt 1911's that I don't really care about)

Won this 4513TSW (pre-rail) tonight at auction. My winning bide was $500. I was able to check it out a few weeks ago and it's in fine condition. It will go nicely with my 4586 and 4516-1. Smith only made this version of the 4513TSW from 97-99. When production resumed in 2000 it had the light rail. It comes with three S&W magazines and the carrying case. I'll be getting it tomorrow, but here a few photos courtesy of the auction company. I'm getting hooked on the 3rd Gen autos. Didn't appreciate them when they were still in production, but I wouldn't have been able to afford them back then even if I had. In the nineties we were young parents with student loans to repay. So now I'm trying to rectify that.

I shot my 5906 today, it's just like my 4506 but "easier". Better get those .45 mags while you can, I'm sure they'll get exponentially harder to find at some point in the near future; I still grab any I see, and am set to hoard 5900 mags in case Mec Gar stops making them (https://www.gunbroker.com/item/869197474 cheapest/easiest I've found bc the guy has tons and doesn't try to rip you off on shipping; I just bought 4 of his 17 rounders). I have 11 4500 mags, definitely will get more

Got an ATI Galeo yesterday. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but very happy with it.

Jealous!

A friend of a friend's brother just sold me a pair of surplus FAL mags for the cost of shipping

Not a real gun, but here's my latest purchase: With all the years that I've been an IMFDB member, and my longstanding interest in movie guns, I suppose it's a surprise that I didn't do this sooner, but I finally bought a screen-used rubber prop gun from Propstore. Specifically, I bought a Steyr SPP that was used in "Stratton":

https://propstore.com/product/stratton/steyr-spp-gun/

(Propstore still lists this weapon for sale, so I'm guessing that they either haven't updated the site yet to reflect that I bought it, or they have more than one SPP in inventory.)

I've thought about getting a screen-used rubber gun from Propstore for a while, but often, those things are pricey (sometimes as much as real guns), especially if used by one of the movie's stars. And since I'd rather spend my money on real guns, it's usually hard for me to motivate myself to buy something fake like this - same reason I don't buy airsoft guns anymore. But, I've always been curious to find out what these rubber guns are like, and once Propstore knocked down the price by 50%, I figured I'd spend a little money to find out. (Though even a rubber gun listed at $69 costs a LOT more with shipping from the U.K.)

I'll post pictures later on once I have a chance. Side note: Did anyone see where the hell the Steyr SPPs appear in the movie? I watched the movie on Prime video this weekend and I never saw an SPP anywhere, though there are lots of scenes where terrorists are seen firing at the protagonists from a distance (or being shot and falling) where the guns could have been used.

The BDA guy sold basically everything he was trying to move, to one guy, so I snagged an IJ-70 today as consolation

Going to buy a Gold Cup tomorrow from a family friend, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it

As an FYI: I'm setting up my Daniel Defense M4A1 as a "Sicario" clone build (since those movies got me interested in DD guns in the first place). I was able to source an FDE EOTech 553 and a Surefire M720V from two guys I met on ARFCOM; I replaced the Aimpoint PRO and Surefire M600DF with those. Right now, I'm just waiting on a Troy folding front sight to come in, and that last accessory will complete my build (the gun is currently fitted with a Troy folding rear sight, but a DD fixed front sight).

Once my build is complete, I'll link to the topic; I plan to post it on the DD forum on ARFCOM first.

Here's my "Sicario" DD M4A1 clone build:
