I Figured why not go 30's style with the modern tommy gun?

I got a Glock 21 to go with the Vector. In a serious situation, I'll just run Iron Sights on the Vector. I've also got my eye on a Bushnell Trophy that I might get for $100. She wouldn't really notice that.
Oh well, then you obviously made the right decision by going with the Glock

Got my early graduation gift on a college budget.

Nagant M1895 revolver
I looked up the markings and it sounds like this one was made 1944/1945. The date on it is partially scrubbed off, but I can see a 1--4.

Figures. I just posted the first pic of my baby in the chat thread and I think it got run over by a mountain of chat. Browning's post inspired me to get off my ass and finally clean the smartphone lens. The conversation was about a G20L (10mm Auto, long barrel).

You have to use the factory locking block and mag catch spring, otherwise, yeah, it's like a mini-AR in that there are several aftermarket options on almost every part. I decided to go all-out on this one, my total was almost $1400 including shipping, plus mags.

6.5" LW bbl
HiVis sights
Mainly LW parts, lots of ZEV Tech parts, including the Fulcrum stainless trigger (complete w/ my dirty fingerprints making it look bad)
Tungsten non-captive guide rod, Wolff spring, various titanium small parts, some stainless

Image

I made up the same list of parts for a G20L, pretty much the same price, it would be about $1000 if you used factory small parts. Planning on buying a large frame to do that when they come out, but I'm going to stick to my plan of putting it aside until I can actually afford to do the build :awesome:

Just get a two ring binder. It's perfect for close range paper holding, and it won't go through drywall. Not to mention the sound of you opening and closing it will make the paper automatically fall in line.

The rules really are not hard to follow in this thread.

I would greatly appreciate it if all of you could have the basic decency to read and follow them. It's a pain in the arse to manually remove your little inconsequential chatty posts that could be sent as a PM or taken to the Firearms chat thread that we created.

So one more time.

So, if you Tapcofuck an AK (or ATIFuck it), you have this AR extension tube on the back, with nothing in it:

So, with a bit of lathe work, you can turn it into storage space.

I'm thinking of calling it the Butt Plug.

Rossi Model 31. Free. Needs minor work to hammer and rebound slide. You can NEVER have too many .38 Special revolvers.

Took off the Parabellum top cover because it wouldn't hold zero. Waiting on a removable base PA micro and a RS AKML mount for it. Just got the polish mag today- no metal lugs or feed lips, will probably be a range mag. It sure looks good though!
