Ok, I will never shoot a kimber again. This weekend I am out at the range and my cousin has his Warrior which I have on back order.....stovepiped on me 3 times!!!!!! I have been shooting glocks for years and never once had a jam...No way I am gonna spend $1500 on a pistol that jams that much when I can buy 2 glocks for the same price.

is it brand new cause it takes a while for 1911's to break in. They have at least a 300 round break in period on top of the fact that you need to be shooting some good loads. 1911's are quirky little pistols but when you get em tuned in just right nothing compares to their accuracy.

He has owned this gun for about 2 to 3 years and carried it in Afghanistan as his service sidearm...I know it has had at least 300 rounds go through it, however that being said I was told it could have been the clips malfunctioning from debris being in them.

Never shot one personally, but Ruger makes a fine firearm...They get a bad rap because they are on the bottom side of the price scale usually so people (idiots) assume they are cheap...untrue. I own a Ruger 10/22 and I wouldn't own any other brand of rifle in that caliber.

Haven't read the entire thread, but does anyone out there have a 16 gauge shotgun? I know they are rare. What are your thoughts? I may have an opportunity to get one, but am curious if they are valuable or not.

Thanks, be sweet! flowers.gif

Hey hares. This is the 54r ammo you should get. Just talked to a buddy of mine that is bigtime into PSL's and he says this is the gold standard of 54r surplus ammo.

http://www.aimsurplu...e...&groupid=40



When I get the money to do it I'm thinking about also getting a PSL or AK in 54r.


Greezy, I think your friend is correct. This is the "gold standard of 54r surplus ammo". I originally purchased a 91/30 Mosin Nagant and it's a nice shooter for a surplus rifle. Certainly cannot beat the price. I was hoping to find a Mosin Nagant in a carbine. The only place I was finding them was on line and about $50 more than I wanted to pay plus the shipping and other hassles. Low and behold I found a Model 1959 Mosin Nagant carbine at a pawn shop for $100. It shows a bit more use than the long rifle Model 91/30 which looked almost new to me but the carbine is real sweet and easier to carry. That long rifle is a good shooter and I'll likely pick up another. I have a couple of rifles I simply cannot justify shooting on a regular basis because of ammo prices. Good grief , 25, 30, 40 $ a box of twenty!! That 7.62 x 54r ammo certainly helps take the pain out of the pocket book. I'm buying it locally and still only paying $4.60 for twenty rounds buying those "spam cans". I could only save about $8-10 a can buying on line at that site after figuring in shipping. Still buying locally for a bit more $ is worth it to me. Besides I don't have to send someone I don't know a copy of my driver's license. thumbsup.gif The only thing I'm not happy on those Nagants are the stripper clips. They are sort of cumbersome to use. I can load individual rounds in the mag faster than I can with a loaded clip. But they do provide a good way to keep a load of five together for transport.

I can only assume any British .303 surplus ammo that may have been around is long gone? That is one old gun I really enjoy shooting. I can buy a box of twenty soft nose hunting rounds for around $19 but that is still over my budget for regular shooting.

I've got AN AR...but I got a .223, .308, and .50cal upper for it...I also ordered the masterkey mount so I can mount my defender shotgun under it for added home protection value...also have a ACOG and holographic sight for it with the flashlight mount and modified muzzle to send the noise down range....pistol grip pump on the shotgun will double nicely as a handle. Accessorizing AR's never gets old biggrin.gif


I know this is probably a stupid question but is the shotgun undermount supposed to be like a m203? I know with airsoft rifles they do that and all the bb's are loaded into a grenade type device that holds co2 or green gas. I know thats not the same but is that like a m203 to a larger scale or something? I've always wanted to get a Bushmaster .203 but the money is just too much. I like the Smith and Wesson version of the AR too but then your really gettting into the money for that one. HK has a really nice lookin "assualt" rifle that kinda looks like a gr36, or as close to assualt as you can legally get now.....lol When I was in the academy some 15 years ago we had a guy from BCI who had clearance for actual automatic weapons and he brought a AK to the range. You couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with that thing cause it really did spray and pray.

Not as valuable as an 8 gauge with paper shells! They used to make the 16 gauge with a .22 barrel right beside it. Kind of an odd looking thing! As far as I know, you can still get 16 gauge shells fairly easy

Factory peeps.

There's an issue being raised about whether puting the special optics on an AR makes it a "precision" weapon. For law-enforcement, a gun having that title would mean having to become "sniper" certified to carry it, for the lack of a better term. Having the peep sights only means I have to qualify with it the same as I do my pistol (once the rifle school is completed).



FiveO, does it seem to you that using a scope or any type of optics isn't normal? I was raised on open sights and scopes just seem to drive me ####! I can shoot ten times better with open sights but obviously there's a distance issue that can't be overcome with common eyesight but scopes just don't seem natural to me for some reason...... hmm.gif

A Springer Mil-Spec has to be one of the best buys out there when it come to 1911 .45ACP pistols. With forged steel slides and frames (not cast) most custom builders have no problem using a Mil-Spec as a base gun for a custom build job. Mine has never failed one time out of the box. No FTF, FTE, nothing. It goes bang everytime.

They are not inexpensive after you swap-out all the MIM parts and replace them with top shelf tool steel parts and send it off to the Custom Shop for a work-over.

Still at hundreds, if not thousands less, I would now put my Springer up against just about any Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Les Baer 1911 out there. Whats in a name besides lots of cash.

Here is another one of my toys...

Old Norinco 1911A1 Gov. Model with a Clark Customs .460 Rowland kit. Besides the .460 Rowland kit, all I've done was upgrade the trigger with an STI short polymer unit and a EGW sear and disconnector. Shoots great and would probably put a smile on Dirty Harry's face.

Obviously their is an advantage with a scoped rifle that is sighted in PROPERLY! God strike me dead but I was not happy with a neighbor that shoots a scoped .300 Winchester Mag who made two shots at a coyote recently and missed both shots! 800 yard shots are something to brag about I guess but that particular day scared the hell out of my wife. People shoot around us all the time but 800 yards is likely to end up at someone's front door. Morons. Sorry for the rant. My old Mosin Nagants will shoot quite a distance but I stop their projectiles with a good backstop at 100 yrds. or less. Sorry , East Texas is not West Texas and it dang sure ain't Montana.

I'm not sure I can see 2400 feet or at least be certain what I'm looking at!

You should live in Ohio during Deer season!!! There's a reason we aren't allowed to use rifles! Still a 3 and 3 quarter inch magnum sabot going through your house can tear up alot of stuff! I think our house was hit once with that and once during crossbow season!!! Not to mention the fact that all the woods are pretty much being sold off as quarter acre lots so you have probably 20 hunters within a half mile space all shooting at the same deer! Yeah, that would be why I don't hunt deer here anymore! We had a neighbor who went hunting with a .45 which is legal here to use a pistol. He had asked permission to go on this families private lot. No big deal but their kid was also a hunter and he told him that he was going to go too and our neighbor offered him some orange to wear but he refused it. Well the kid was crawling through the bush's for some stupid reason and instead checking his target, our neighbor shot the kid in the head! This was probably when I was in grade school but he was never the same after that of course. It messed him up pretty bad knowing he accidently killed that boy. The weird thing was the family was some kind of religion where they didn't believe in waiting for funeral homes or something like that. The day the boy died, they had him in the ground in a pine box that night. I don't know what that belief came from but they were just weird that way. It was really sad!
