Re: ZS Hot or Not: Firearms edition (PICS AND LINKS ONLY)

Paperwork on my Stemple SMG cleared back in April. Due to Branch Covidian Cult issues, I didn't get the stamp until August.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

If you divide raw deaths (assuming literally every report is a valid COVID death) by population, you get a death rate of .061%. Call me when something relevant comes along. And CDC states that only 6% were Cooties only deaths. The other 94% had an AVERAGE of 2.6 comorbidities. Which means those peop...

Once again literally nothing of note has happened here, other than our governor wanting yet MOAR restrictions for places not having issues.

No, they came from a fellow collector here, very much alive, and a couple of outfitters in Maine. Also, thread rules require an image post.

My M1D finally has a scope.

I'm not sure. I'm down to a small IOTV and a medium long Interceptor.

Re: Conversion specs needed: HK G3 mag for Valmet use?

Zombie thread resurrection.

I'm working on some now. It's not "simple enough." But it is doable. It takes grinding down the sides, new tabs front and rear, re-shaping the lips, and adding a shim.

This is for the Valmet M-78.

Re: ZS Hot or Not: Firearms edition (PICS AND LINKS ONLY)

Since we found cracks on the first drilling, I swapped out for this one. 16 gauge over 7.7X58R, which is neither the Danish nor Sauer variant. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! Finding a caliber _I've_ never heard of. Zeiss scope on a claw mount. http://www.sharppointythings.com/piwigo/i.php?/upload/2018/03/19/...

Here's photos of my new drilling. 16 gauge over 9.3X72R. Better photos later. EDIT: No, not a Luftwaffe drilling, and as you may see in the photos (I didn't before then) it seems to have some cracks in the receiver. The dealer, being a gentleman, let me trade for another, differently cool drilling w...
