I suppose it's all a matter of personal preference. You say they're all in the same condition? If the No.1 has been arsenal refurbished it MIGHT be of lower value (hard to say-do the #s match on the parts?).

Are you looking to get the rifle as a collector's piece or as something to shoot?

Pandemonium
08-08-2010, 11:36 AM
all numbers on all models are matching, and they are all ready to shoot, I just can't decide that is the problem, if I could I would just take them all, So just say something that gives one of the models an advantage so I can finally decide what to do

gaijinsamurai
08-08-2010, 11:53 AM
Believe me, Pandemonium: I would be in the same dilemna as you!!! I don't think i could choose just one either!!!

Okay: Do you have a general preference for WWII vs. pre-WWII military history? That might influence your decision.
Do you have more of an interest in Canadian vs. American small arms? That might influence whether you'd prefer the Longbranch over the Savage.

Pandemonium
08-08-2010, 12:18 PM
Problem is solving itself, soemone else offered 750 for the MKIII, I love enfields but there is a limit, it will between the savage and the longbranch, I think I'm going Savage

When I mention that my No. 1 Mk III is nearly 100 years old people here sigh in relief as if her age renders her a nice collectable. My No.4 Savage was ruined by a 1944 POF surplus round that decided to never leave the barrel, I got the round removed eventually but the barrel is shot.

They were in "good-very good" condition, and could have easily been sold for three or four times that. I asked him about buying a couple of them recently, but he said they're all gone. Too bad...:(

Pandemonium
08-08-2010, 08:41 PM
ah, it means Historic, Decorative and Folkloristic rifles, there is an exception in Belgium for some rifles, something like the antique status of rifles in the USA, that can be purchased without a license (but you do need a license for obtaining ammo, and getting a license isn't cheap it takes a lot of paperwork and time (it takes about a year) and lasts only for 5 years)
They are rather popular, many Dutch people try to buy them in Belgium
here is a list: http://www.wapenunie.be/files/hfd%20lijst%20bijgewerkt.pdf
I don't have a license for all my guns, it costs you more, and you have very strict orders where to store them and where to keep them

wiking
08-08-2010, 09:13 PM
interesting list, i wish we had something like that here in norway. But thankfully we don't have time limits on our firearms licences, once you've got it there's no re-applying or anything. I do hope we get to keep it like that, they are reviewing the firearms laws now, and i believe time limited licenses are one of the ideas they'll look at. Just another way to make us pay for some under-qualified underling who don't know half the law, who invent their own rules where they don't know them, to push paper around an office.

Saw one very similar to the one pictured for resale in Gander Mt. Made by panther Arms it had the bipod, foregrip, collapsible stock, night vision scope, etc. Looked like a modern warfare gleekster bought an AR and kitted it out to fulfill his fantasy. Must have dropped it cause it was banged up and scratched. low price of $530.

Update on the R597 22 I bought. Took it to the gravel pit again, this time without the missing spring. Had some feeding problems due to the lack of spring, usually the last round in the mag failed to load and I had to **** it again. Burned through about 300+ rounds with around 5 dud rounds, barrel was warm 30 minutes later (could've been the case though). While cleaning the chamber I noticed a chip or hole around a milimeter around which exposed part of the hammer. Did this happen due to built up heat or a defect in the manufacture? The weapon fires fine though.

There was a bunch imported into the US, sadly they had torched cut receivers. It would great if they were sold as Class III firearms. The people who would cry the most are those currently owning 1928 Thompsons, the market value would probably drop. Americans can not own any FA made after 1986 (???) so these would qualify, also being American made, they would not fall under the 2005 barrel ban.

They banned importation as far back as '68. Atleast up untill '86 they could import them as parts kits, build new ones and register them as transferable NFA guns.

Has the ban on barrels been active that long? I've only recently started to see references to it around the internet. But that's probably just the lag as kits with barrels were used up.

What's the going rate for a 1928 thompson in the US now? 25-30K?

Hollis
08-09-2010, 10:45 AM
The barrel ban started in Sept 2005, I believe. There are still firearm kit available with the original barrels that came into the US prior that date. Anything else has a American made barrel.

Yes, Thompson are around that price.

Sten guns, that I saw at a gun show was about $3500.00 each. Every year they go up in value.

Some states have bans on anything automatic, kits included. Also Kits assembled have to be legal under NFA, either conversion to closed bolt semi auto only or as dummies.

ARC puts on new stuff at least twice a month, as soon as something is sold he takes it from his webpage.Cornet is not bad but he has nothing more to offer then ARC. Podewijn is a crook, his prices are 3 to 4 times higher then what you pay here. On some of the guns he wins 3000% that's not what I need.

Anybody got any opinions or heard any good things about the Sig Sauer SP2022? The local gun shop here has a special on them for $400 in 9mm. If they are good guns I was thinking about picking one up shortly. My main motivation for getting the weapon is to use it for CC. Right now I'm saving up for a Walther PPS and my patience is slowly wearing thin. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas to come saving up for the PPS. I've got enough to get the 2022 now and in a few months I will have enough to get a PPS. So should I wait for the PPS, seeing as my main motivation for getting this handgun is concealed carry or is the 2022 a good option?

Pretty NICE rifle.
Have you shot it yet? I was looking at similar muzzle break but read somewhere that it's over 170db, that you would need 2 sets of hearing protection.

We're getting similar ones on our Steyr upgrades at work, Bloody nice to shoot with over the standard flashsuppressor, Zero movement/Jump on firing, Sucks to be a coach off to the flanks though. Thankfully a limited issue of suppressors should also help.

Hey if any of you start thinking that the US's gun laws suck, I'd gladly switch places and collections with any of you.
In Canada
All firearms registered in one of three categories: non-restricted (hunting rifles, bolt action long arms, civvy stuff), restricted (AR 15, etc. All the black scary stuff), and prohibited (the really cool, full auto, etc, scary black stuff and handguns under a certain bbl length).
Mandatory storage laws for all.
5 round magazine capacity for any centrefire semi auto rifle.
Need provincial authority to transport restricted and prohib, can only go from residence to range, gunsmith, or border crossing.
Restricted can only be fired on a provincially approved range, prohib can't be fired at all.

The only cool thing I can really see is that once a rifle is on the restricted list its bbl length doesn't matter, no NFA rules for SBR, etc, but all the gay stuff outweighs it.

Oh, and our prices on firearms accessories typically run 150 to 200% of US prices. For example, a $14 PMAG would run about $30 Cdn. A lower parts kit is about $100 for run of the mill parts, DPMS, RRA, etc.

Oh, and don't even think about open or concealed carry. We do have a concealed license, but the last one for self defense was issued to a Hell's Angel who turned RCMP informant.

Try your local gunshops. I know one around here has 2 SCAR 16S and 1 SCAR 17S. The 17S isnt for sale its just a demo.

Then again you can do what I did and get an internship at FN Manufacturing and get to handle the Mk.16, Mk.17, Mk.20 as well as the rest of the FN military lot all day. It's a blast and you get to meet a lot of cool people as well.

I feel that it is still my responsibility to be knowledgable of current political issues, know where candidates stand on those issues, have some knowledge of their qualifications backgrounds, and vote for the one I think may be the best. There have been several elections where I didn't bother to vote, but being a member of one of the parties gives us the ability to at least take part in primaries. As someone who's political leanings can best be described as "moderate', I would prefer to limit the influence of the fringe elements of both the Dems and GOP.

Don't want to start anything and please don't think I'm forcing my view but I do believe that your Independent vote will count as +1 for Democrats.

There's a lot of people who think that being something different then the 2 major parties will make a difference. It won't, you will split republican vote and help keep Democrats in power. History has shown this to be the case and even left wing democrats are preaching and hoping for all of you to do just that.

Like it or not but there's only 2 real choices and voting something different will count toward one of them and this won't be changing anytime soon.

Comparison is really unfair.

G36 is really "static" compared to the modularity of the SCAR or ACR. Both have the ability to not only change barrels, but calibers on the fly. These rifles are first in the line of rifles that were built modular from ground up. G36 is a traditional rifle in that sense.

No, the first real short-stroke gas piston was made by "Carbine" williams and used in the M1 carbine among other guns.

It's not just how it works, if you look at pics of the G36, the ACR and the SCAR dissassembled, you see a distinct g36-look to the bolt, carrier, recoil spring etc. In and of itself not an issue, but when it gets hyped up like it was the M41A Pulse Rifle, and not just another adaptation of a established design....well, i don't know why it irks me.

We saw it with the HK 416 as well, it was hyped up as a sales-pitch, and suddenly everyone was on the band-wagon, building piston guns and piston kits. And after all, it's nothing but a piston driven AR, hardly magical or new, as it's been done before HK did it, just not so publicised.

Jippo
08-14-2010, 02:48 PM
It is a rifle, it has nothing extraordinary in it, but it has many desirable features built in a single firearm. Get it? That is why people are so interested about it. Nobody is saying it is the final pinnacle of rifle design.

And as said, G36 is copy itself, have a look:

Also, I saw some bubba'd bolt-actions at the pawnshop where I do my FFL transactions, A Cut Above Pawn on Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy. They have a web site, and you can google them.

Whats the reason for the price disparity?

I assume there are people who like to hoard **** for no reason, screwing others over in the process.

Not sure, but would like to know myself. *(Gaijin's reply makes cents)

Same reason baseball cards and comics go for high prices. Collectors appreciate them, and the whole supply/demand Adam Smith stuff dictates the prices.

My dad bought 14 acres in rural Oregon and built a house and barn on it (my grandpa was an electrician at the time) for only $5,000. That same piece of land and house would go for well over $500,000 now.

Don't be to bad about the old prices, there was an article in Guns & ammo or American handgunner not so long ago where one of them did the math. Gun, and even ammo prices, are either equal to, or less than, the old prices when adjusted for inflation. The pre-ammo shortage prices and the pre-obama gun prices were nothing more than an anomaly. And when a basic 1911 today costs the same as a GI 1911 did in the 70's and 80's, you have to factor in that a basic 1911 today includes all the gunsmithing people did on a GI 1911 to make it shootable.

With todays money, the old prices are SWEET, but once adjusted for inflation, they are very close.

My DMR project is done. The parts:

BCM 20" SAM-R SS410 barrel
BCM F-marked FSB
BCM Upper, BCG, "gunfighter" charging handle
Anvil Lower
Geissele SSA trigger
WOA lower parts kit
Larue 12" rail

I had to send the barrel off for front sight pinning, since it didn't come that way. I chose not to go with the authentic set screw FSB as found on the real DMR, because in my opinion that is not a very secure way of attaching the gas block (seen one come loose not too long ago actually). The reason this ended up on DMRs is because thats how USAMU competition rifles are put together, and they simply used those barrels and parts. The idea is that you can zero out your windage using the front sight, thus allowing for maximum rear sight adjustment in either direction if need be.

I plan to get an ACOG for it eventually. And now for the process of putting it together:

I bought mine locally at a store for $70. I wouldn't pay more than $70 (excluding tax) for it though. The elevation knob is nice, but I don't ever really use it. Then again, I never shot as far as 600 meters, lol.

I would be really wary to buy from Ebay, since there are fake Matechs out there too.

They are great little guns, I shot one this summer at the local gun shop. But good luck finding any .380 ACP ammo right now, stuff is really hard to find. In some places it's non-existent. When you can find ammo it's expensive and you wont be able to buy enough for carry and practice all in one stop.

Got a good deal on a like-new Ruger 10-22 the other week, been tinkering with it since. Wanted a cheap, fun gun. Since then, I've put an extended magazine release on the rifle and played with the bolt holdover (as opposed to having to hold onto it to release it, I now just rack the bolt back and let it go forward), and lightened the trigger pull a bit. Next up are Tech-Sights (M-1/M-14-style peep sights), and I'll send off the bolt to have it cleaned up a bit.

08-16-2010, 10:15 AM
I've been wanting a 10/22 for years, but i've never bought one. partly because i've realized that if i did, it would end up being the most expensive 10/22 known to man, or atleast this side of the Atlantic, in a very short time. Leading me to poverty. So i've stayed away from them up untill now, but it shares the top of the "to buy" list, along with a new 1911 after i sold my 70's Combat commander (probably pictured in this thread half a million pages ago).

But it's not going to be a cheap gun by the time i'm done with it.

I missed the opportunity to pick up a Yugo MG42 kit for $100. The mistake I made when I built my WWII MG42, was to have it come with the 7.62 Nato conversion. I would like to have had the 8mm feed tray and barrel.

Mr. Hole, very very nice stuff.


Note, to make my MG42, legal to shoot, it had to be converted to a closed bolt with a semi auto fire control group. If I get energetic, I'll post photos of it's inners.

I've been trying to get a hold of TruGlo fiberoptic sights for my Glock but all Swedish distributors charge an insane amount for them. All US distributors I've been in contact with refuse to ship over here.

A way to save money, is to just install the front sight. That is getting more popular here and it works very well.

That would be awesome, if it aint to much trouble. The model of the sights is TG131GT1, which is their TFO line for a G17. Green front, green rear.

The going US rate for them is around $100 + shipping but over here they charge $150-200. So, anything under that really.

I've considered that too. The front sight is by far the most important, and easiest to swap out, but I just love the way the rear sight looks so... :)

Ive got M70 that I cant shoot anything bigger then 150gr without hurting my shoulder, and thats in Hogue stock, I want to rebarrel it to .270, hoping its small inought for my shoulder to take it but with inough punch to take anything between coyotee and a moose, Im hoping that with a varmint type barrel the weight of the rig will increase slightly to produce lesser recoil

I'm not sure that going from .30-06 to .270 will be the answer as .270 is really at the red line with 150gr bullets and thus doesn't give you the versatility with big game that .30-06 does. Rather than spending the money on re-barreling, have you considered porting your barrel - Magna-port, Boss or similar, or installing Kick-stop in your stock.

All of the serial numbers covered up?

I take it you are refering to the yellow markings.I think it's some kind of tactical markings, it's not on the serial numbers. I saw the same on a pic of an Israeli one. Maybe one of the Israelis onboard can help.

Something like that. Basically, kind of IFF thing for plain clothes security people.

Actually i remember those pics, Israeli security dudes who reacted to a situation while they were getting someone in the Bush-administration (?) on his plane to leave israel a few years back. Big pieces of yellow tape on their guns, the concensus we ended on was that it was a simple, but probably effective, IFF system.

A few more of Gaijin and my outing. That uzi sure shoots nice, like a .22!

We actually didn't do a lot of shooting, but yes is was fun. I think we did more talking than anything. I was pretty cool for me to meet a member in person and gaijin is a pretty cool dude...for an old guy like me!

I did some shooting too, but the advantage I have, I don't have to leave my property. I was hoping to get a 100 yard range set up by the end of summer. Oh well, maybe next summer. So my pistol range will have to do.

Hollis, you don't know how much I envy you. I used to be able to shoot .22/12g in my back yard (approx 1 acre) around 20 years ago, but a change from older country-born neighbours to younger left-wing townies put pay to that.

Found a seller in the US that ships TruGlo to Sweden. I'm a happy puppy right now.

Pics will be up when they arrive and the mounting is done.

What about Mr. Hole.......... He has much nicer select fire and they are legal. DW, trends like that are happening here too. Once was common practice is getting more and more restrictive. Fortunately for me, most of my neighbors shoot and there is no room for any new construction, yet!!

Those are cool sights, I have done a few, on other people's pistols. They also make them for shotguns and rifles. I really like them, especially on the front sight.

Totally my fault we couldn't do as much shooting as we had planned. I was a dumbarse and forgot to bring the 9mm, .40S&W, and .45 ACP ammo!
Luckily, I just happened to have had a full magazine for the Uzi, plus two 1911A1 mags with rounds in them.

I was just pretending to be a cool dude. I might give that initial impression, but before too long, people start seeing me as the total geek I really am! ;)
