A longslide PPQ in 9mm.



Appendix holster finally showed up for the standard version and I like it even more now.

Amen, this is probably going to be my Christmas present to myself this year. Just need to buy everyone else's presents first.

There better be a box thread

Also, if it is a 300 Savage and you decide to handload, I can toss you a handful of brass scrounged from Detective Thompson a couple years back.

There will be. And the shop had one in .300 Savage, but I decided to go with .308, since that's not exactly hard ammo to find. I probably will start rolling my own though.

My grandpa has hunted with a 99 in 300 savage since the 60s. He can never find ammo, so I picked some up at the Gander Mountain in Waukesha. Respect yo elders, son.

Hail SS-18 Satan, May His Passing Cleanse The Earth


There's a Savage 99 in .308 with a stock two inches shorter than normal floating around in my family that's been nicknamed The Beast. It's a good rifle. I got my first buck with it.

I also hate it with a loving passion because somehow it manages to kick harder than 7mm Rem Mag, or dad's .411 KDF from his guiding days. Goddamn thing gave me a bruise every time I fired it(I was 12, loving thing gave me a flinch it took five years to get over)

The ones in .300 Savage are pretty much the same. Pull trigger, get kicked in the shoulder. Combination of light as hell gun, stout cartridge, and late 1800's ergos I guess.

Pretty sure that's a replacement barrel, it isn't serialed, plus there's quite a gap between the frame and underlug. Not that it matters, it's still an awesome gun.

Stevens 124. Be warned, they are incredibly lovely. The handle is a cross bolt locking lug which has to be pulled out to cycle the action. One that I owned, and a couple that I've seen were peened to the point where you had to beat the handle out with a punch, screwdriver, or rock. Also the bolt release can act as a second trigger. Makes the Winchester 1911 look like a good idea.

More than that, the barrel appears to have been shortened from six inches, based on the location of the SMITH & WESSON markings.

edit: Oh, he says so in the description. Derp.

I have a super cool old Walther Model 2 that does exactly this, but it had a badly split stock when I bought it, and I sent it to Dad's for him to fix. His cleaning lady promptly moved the bag o' parts with the screws, trigger guard, magazine and assorted other little bits, and the goddamn thing has never been seen again. It was a really neat action, and I have been keeping the Oddities thread afloat for a year hoping to find that bag of gun parts.



There's a Modell 1 and the Modell 2, both have the same action.

So I packed up my Salvador Dali print of two blindfolded dental hygienists trying to make a circle on an Etch-a-Sketch and headed for California.

Could you theoretically do that to any semiauto .22lr? I'm picturing a bolt attachment and stock replacement for a 10/22 that does this. Am I an idiot or could this be done without damaging the action during firing?

I agree with all of those things. There are a few 4566TSWs on GB right now from the same seller, I was drooling over them earlier and seriously considering buying one until I realized they were DAO. If it were DA/SA or SAO I'd have been all over that poo poo.

But right now, if money were no object, I want this pair of experimental, pre-production Coonan .357s: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vi...?Item=454888403

I'm interested in ordering a Korth PRS in this plasma blue PVD finish except in a 6" barrel model with the barrel weight on the end. If I have a a choice in grips, I'll go with a wood burl.

I just remembered that the brits experimented with M1 Garands chambered in .280 British after the war and goddamnit now I'm sad all over again that the US managed to shove 7.62x51 down everyone's throats. A true intermediate cartridge in a Garand, FAL, M14, G3. . . god that would have been amazing.

Why not just compromise with 7mm-08 and consider it .276 Pedersen Magnum?

Because then it wouldn't be .276. The idea isn't to just get a flat shooting Garand, it's to build an interesting "what if" and see how the SOB actually would have shot.
