I don't have all the monies. If I did I would, but I don't. So sadly, as insanely awesome as this may be, I cannot afford to buy it.

We can have ALL guns delivered to our door here so

But yes we have antiques/BPs that do not count as firearms and therefore require no troubles.

I have a re-occurring dream that I find a box of "grandpa's toy guns" at an estate sale that turns out to just contain guns of such wacky design the people selling them don't know they are even guns.

You guys know how in dreams things are what they are, but not really? Like your brain is filling in blanks in overly clever or insane ways. So a gun is a gun, but just weird and quirky.

I love that guns my dreaming brain can't even imagine actually do exist. The end of the 19th century spawned the most fascinating guns of all time.

Nothing pedestrian about a Luger, they are leader of the pack of flipper baby early automatics. They are a crazy, intricate, absurd, and awesome design that still managed to get into mass production.

It was way before you reg'd here but there was a goon years ago who posted about this sheet metal toy gun that his parents let him play with as a kid. He was surprised when we told him it was a Liberator.

Currently I desperately want a G41(M). I actually had one get away from me about a year ago now and that fucker has been haunting my dreams ever since. gently caress me for not having the money on hand back then.

Well, that's one immediate want satisfied. I just bought a 1916 DWM, most parts matching except the trigger, side plate, and locking bolt/takedown lever; grips are unnumbered black plastic and the magazine appears unnumbered, but has a wooden base. Definitely more of a shooter than a collector's piece, but it's my first Luger and it cost me $450 out the door, so I'm really happy with it.

I can totally see why you'd brandish it while writing. Something about the thing just screams to be picked up and handled. The heft, the way the grip feels in your hand, the grooved area above the trigger that is the perfect place to rest your index finger, the smooth way the slide and frame fit together, goddamn do I love this thing.

I held, fondled, and drooled over one for about twenty minutes during the winter. It was just a few hundred out of my price-range or it would have come home with me. It just felt so right in my hands.

I've only ever seen one, and I don't recall it being for sale at the time.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was that one during the winter going for?

It was around $1,000 (maybe a bit more) and was in far better shape than the one in the picture I posted. It was also the rifle length rather than the carbine, but did have the dustcover*.

* Which moves back when you work the lever and closes when you close the lever.

V9 or 10 guns are effectively SAO, considering you can't decock, and once you load a round the hammer is cocked with no way to drop it but fire. Install a match trigger kit (in a full size gun) and you're looking at what's basically a very decent single action, polymer handgun.

V9/V10 is greek to me, my sissy hands require the tender lady's handshake of the compact grip, and I can't afford one anyway, but thanks for pointing out that at least I can dream...
