This is my BOOMSTICK!

Post by mzmadmike » Sat Dec 31, 2005 9:14 pm

Actually, it's my introduction, but I like that phrase and I love my boomstick.

One of my fans introduced me to the site, and my only question is, why don't I see more arsenals with chainsaws? They are an ideal way to disable zombies while putting out enough noise that other team members can find you to bring backup. I recommend a Green Machine 2HP with an 18" self lubricating bar.

Welcome Mike, As for chainsaws, they can be heavy and the same noise that gets your teammates attention could also get the attention of the RALF's

Welcome to the forums...

I'm gonna have to look into chainsaws, do they have them in tactical black with a bayonet mount? :D

If they don't, I have epoxy paint and a machine shop.

If I can fit that, I can fit one to a chainsaw.

What bayonet is that? It looks like a pattern '07 with hooked quillion, but different.

1914 Swiss Engineer's bayonet for the Schmidt-Rubin. I cut the pommel, milled a new mount from 4140 and forged a new guard from 5160. It also fits on my daughter's 14.5" M4, but it's taller than she is and looks ridiculous.

but yes, I could put one on a chainsaw. Silly and intimidating, but a fuel saver. I like it.

Easy enough. Standard 6"? I've done replacement recoil spring plugs for 1911s that mount bayonets.

Ironically, that's now a factory option from CZ. Bastards.

I think the purpose of the short bayos I'm seeing on compact shotguns and pistols is like the serrations on my muzzle brake, or on the caps of Surefire and similar flashlights. It stops the shambling dead from grabbing the muzzle.
