Excalibur 01-31-2012 08:37 PM

I just added a fiber optic sight on my 870 along with a sling adapter for a single point sling and new stock/pistol grip combo

k9870 02-07-2012 03:08 PM

My p64 grips are at the post office, ill get pics once i pick em up. the post office here is lazy and just drop a cannot deliver come pick up thing in the mailbox then drive off without ever coming to the door. Union labor at its finest. they're marschal's grips.

predator20 02-07-2012 11:18 PM

Original sling for my L1A1, four 50cal ammo cans (you can never have too many of those). M7 bayonet, Romanian AK furniture set for the hell of it. Korean AR-15 mags, some cheap AK mag pouches.

I ordered one direct from the factory since the local gun shop runs over to High Standard/Interarms at least once a week, negating shipping fees

Cool, let us know how it runs. I've been looking to pick a 74 too. The choice was the IAC or Waffen Works.

Interarms. The "If you want it done right, get some Texans to do it" rule applies to guns as well as almost everything else

k9870 02-21-2012 03:20 AM

does that ak have a siderail? If so next you need a cool soviet optic, kalinka has a ton.

I think it does

I'm not buying anything other than a couple of mags and a few boxes of ammo for a long while. I'm starting to run out of cash. This will probably be the last gun I buy for a year or two

Rockwolf66 02-21-2012 07:58 AM

DPMS M4gery with both a flattop and a gas block rail. There is going to be a backup front sight added as currently I only have the detachable carry handle and a rear backup sight for it(can we guess why a rifle that had maybe a mag through it was going for dirt cheap?). It has a front sight, a rail forend and a forend tool headed this way.

k9870 02-21-2012 02:21 PM

I will prob buy a 686 as my next gun. The 7 shot model. to replace the 669

Prepare to have a new favorite pistol. I wouldn't give up mine for a million dollars

I need to put my stock hogues back on mine, those pachmayrs I bought don't even fit it

Excalibur 02-21-2012 06:52 PM

I just got a new Chip McCormick 10 round mag for my 1911

What pachmayrs did you use? I bought the Professional model that has the exposed backstrap for my 586. The fitment wasn't as good as the Hogues I added to my Model 64. But I like the feel of the Pachs better.

Yournamehere 02-22-2012 06:46 AM

I have a pair of Pachmayr Decelerator rubber grips that don't fit my 19 very well, and I had the American Legend 1911 grips which weren't great either. All the harder plastic ones I've seen usually fit fine though.

I could pull the revolver straight out of the grips, if it weren't for the screw connecting the panels. It's like they were made for the Model 29

I'd buy a set of factory wood grips, but they seem to be either $70+, out of stock when I look for them, or have finger grooves

Yournamehere 02-22-2012 08:22 AM

Check gunbroker for wood grips. They may or may not be new but you can find decent ones for decent prices there. I see Goncalo Alves grips on there all the time.

k9870 02-23-2012 03:41 PM

Looks like smith is no longer using hogues according to their website it shows new grips that cover backstrap and have much less pronounced finger grooves.

AdAstra2009 02-23-2012 05:54 PM

I've spied Surefire 618 foregrips for my Remington 870 on Amazon for $289 with free shipping. Don't think I've ever seen them that low.

The new grips look like they are much better than the old Hogues, and their finger grooves that were seemingly designed solely for the hands of children

SPEMack618 02-24-2012 02:04 AM

School sucks. Being out of the Guard sucks.

*peers around to ensure no one is watching*

Having a girlfriend sucks sometimes too.

I was pursuing this and I realized the last gun I got was Pop's Beretta Black Onyx that I got for Christmas.

The last new gun thing I got was a Wilson 8-rnd mag for my -1991A1.

S&Wshooter 02-27-2012 10:19 PM

Interarms ran out of polymer furnitured AK74 rifles, so I'm going to have to wait a while for mine

k9870 02-28-2012 12:38 AM

I want a sgl21 with a mako sock and a new pistol grip. that would be sweet.

I'd gladly give up my Stag for a Colt SP1. Fuck rails, I want something nice

I shoot my father's right handed Colt all the time, and I've never had any problems. In fact, I've probably put more rounds downrange with it than anything other gun

Spades of Columbia 02-29-2012 07:47 PM

Just ordered a pps-43c for myself...and got one for the store as well. Should be a lot of fun with 4-35rd mags to play with and will make a nice companion for my Zastava M57! I just cant wait for it so im selling my Colt Detective Special 3rd generation to get it faster...ohhh well i dont need another conceal gun anyway.

predator20 03-01-2012 03:19 AM

Finished my retro Carbine this evening. It basically looks like below.

I was originally going to do an XM177E2, but going to wait until the pencil barrel on order comes in to get chopped and flashhider pinned.

I tried S&Wshooter, I tried. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=275911040 I don't like bidding against someone with no feedback. The seller also didn't have a fixed shipping price listed. So he very well could have added $10 to $15 over the actual shipping cost. Besides there's a gun show this weekend, might find something there.

$323? I'd definitely have paid that much if I wouldn't have had to bid against someone. I'd probably end up paying something in the area of $450 of I ever found one at a gunshop anyways

S&Wshooter 03-07-2012 09:37 PM

If you still want a older doublestack S&W, Predator, there are a bunch of Model 59's on gunbroker for relatively low prices

Yournamehere 03-07-2012 10:38 PM

I've read about reliability issues with the 59 in a magazine and a handful of stories here and there, and the sights on later models are better. You're better off with a 2nd or 3rd gen model.

And if you should be apologizing to anyone about mugging up a bid on a S&W pistol, it should be me. I can say with a decent amount of confidence that I'm more of an aficionado on their guns than S&Wshooter. That was a good price for it too even after fees, though it only has one original mag and one 5906 mag, which I personally would have pitched anyway. There'll be others for sure though so don't worry too much about it.

If I knew what the exact shipping was going to be, I would have maybe tried to bid up a little more. Then I would have known my exact final cost. There's also no telling where the other guys limit was either. He loved for it to get down to 5 mins left then outbid me and the 15 min. count would start again.

I prefer the stainless in that series. Probably because of The Hidden and Reservoir Dogs.

Well his name is S&Wshooter. I didn't think you were that much of a fan of them. While there's plenty of 5906's on GB, I prefer the looks of the 659. There will be others as you said. I'm currently watching a pre-lock 686-1 w/ 2.5" barrel, I would get more carry use out of it, but it's about double the cost of the 659. I'm just going to save my pennies for the gunshow.

Yournamehere 03-07-2012 11:14 PM

I still have a beautiful Model 19, and I owned a 5906 for a couple years and loved every bit of it and in owning the 5906 I took a lot of time to research the different model numbers and variations. S&W automatics are among my favorite pistols because of that. One of my biggest contributions to the site is correcting S&W Auto and revolver misidentifications as well, since they're so often misidentified.

If you don't plan on carrying it, I'd say go with the 659 because it's easier to remove the grips if you want to clean under them, there's no firing pin block in them that I know of and a half cock notch in place if you want to have a lighter DA pull, and the triggers on them are just as good as their revolvers in both DA and SA mode, something that cannot be said for any 3rd gen pistol. The stainless steel is polished too and has a fancier look about it.

Just as well with the 686, you can find a Model 66 at a lower price in decent condition on GB and it'll serve you just as well while being lighter and having more of that classic aesthetic if you like that.

That's main reason why I like them over the 5906.

I've looked at the Model 66 snub too. They are a good choice also, but sometimes the sellers can be proud of them too.
