Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Dang. I just checked Gun Broker and there's one listing for an SKS-D with a high bid of $995 right now. If that SKS-D I saw in Houston three years was going for only 450, I missed out on a heck of a deal then. :gonk: I got mine in probably '06. It was considerably less than $450. Part of an estate ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

If you can find ten SKS rifles for $1000 let me know, heck $2500. Unfortunately without my time machine we're both out of luck. For decades the SKS was a $100 gun. I know I'm getting old and I've been around here forever, but when I first joined ZS, dealer cost on a Yugo 59/66 was $88. But hey, tha...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Ok, which one of y'all bought the crate of SKS's from AIM Surplus ? :lol: https://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=F3SKSYCRATE10&name=CRATE+OF+10+Yugoslavian+Model+59%2f66+7.62x39+SKS+Rifles+Cons.+Serial+Numbers&groupid=5392 10 rifles for $5950! That's a hell of a deal on $1,000 worth of rifles.

Re: Tunnel Rat Poll

If I remember correctly, guys who got tunnel rat duty were usually pretty small framed and skinny. Not guys who are over 6 feet tall and over 250 pounds. I'd have likely been stuck lugging an M60 around (or one of those Stoner 63's if I was lucky). Yes, and at least according to my history professo...

Re: The $100 870

Pro Ported. My old Mossberg was Pro Ported and it helped quite a bit with follow-up shots. Not pro-ported, Vang Comp, or at least a very good copy.Same idea, different execution. The Vang Comp System also includes lengthening the forcing cone and back boring the barrel to tighten shot patterns but ...

Re: anybody know why Southern Ohio Guns has no guns for sale?

A lot of small brick and mortar guys hate Bud's because it kills their profits. When I was a counter commando we typically made about $100 over dealer price on any gun except Hi-points and Yugo SKS's when they were dirt cheap. Along comes Buds and a few kitchen table dealers and the profit goes down...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

These trailers have got me on edge! Talking zombies! If only no one had thought of that! This series is suffering a slower, more painful and worthless death than even Coral. I guess it speaks volumes that I'll probably DVR it and watch it writhe later.

I can't remember now where I saw a discussion on that Sony before ( I'm pretty sure it was that one) might have been on here years ago. It was really popular with prisoners for its size and durability. I'll do some google-fu later when I'm on my computer

Re: The $100 870

Don't really know what I want out of it either. There were several up for grabs and it turned into kind of a feeding frenzy. At the price I paid there is almost nothing I can do to it to make it worth less money. Spray on bedliner is another option for the stock :crazy:

The stock is a speed-feed synthetic. It's on decent shape, it'll look Krylon new when I'm done. The barrel is 24".If I go the WESCOG route, I won't re-thread it. I already have a Winchester with a long Winchoke barrel, an 18" barrel with rifle sights and a rifled slug barrel so there isn't anything ...

The $100 870

Picked this up off another board. Shipping and transfer bring it to right at a buck fifty. It's solid, just the orange furniture and a nice "patina". Even threaded for chokes. I'm thinking Krylon and a hacksaw. What does ZS think? Give me your recommendations so I can ignore them and fuck up perfect...

Re: Glock barrels question.

Yeah but bare stainless looks sexy on a black Glock.... Sexy doesn't last as well and this is a PAW gun anyway. I've never had a problem with either stainless or nitride. But, nitride exposes the stainless after a couple range trips so it will need a light oil regardless This isn't just coloring, i...
