gently caress it. I am bidding on a Zero Hallibrton case on ebay to start this setup. Next is the .22 conversion.

I like you, so I'm going to give you a special secret. The electronic data recorder at this link is housed in a Zero case.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/30066890496...984.m1423.l2649

It's 13"x18"x6" or so and I can fit four 1911s in one.

You'd have to find the foam insert, which would run another $30-$40. Or find ~1" thick foam and make your own. I use 1" on mine because it's just under the width of most guns, so when closed things are held tightly in place.

That sucks, especially if one of you other bastards bought it out from underneath him.

Depending on what you want to spend, those data recorders go for around $75-$80 shipped quite often. Zeros seem to go a bit higher, unless they're beat up. Only takes a few minutes to strip out the guts, 4 screws for the main board and the pocket in the lid pulls out easily. Search for "1770SB" or "STR link", those are the two common ones.

I don't want this gun, yet, but I'm intrigued by it. Came across a Wyoming Arms Parker 10mm in a pawn shop yesterday. Priced lower than Gunbroker, but not significantly so, and I didn't know I wanted something in 10mm until I saw it. Might go back and make them an offer this week.

Same place has an Ithaca 49 single shot lever action, which I think I want, but I was holding out for a Henry for my birthday next month.

Well, I need one more to round out the FN/browning 1910 series.

This 1910/55 is one I already have.



It was made just before the 1968 GCA, which set all the silly import rules. Those changes led to this one, the Browning 1910/71 or 1971.



Target grips, target sights, and the longer barrel and slide to get the weight up.

Quite a few on Gunbroker, but none quite cheap enough for me.

I'd also like to find the police version, but I don't think those made it to the US.

In the affordable I will probably own this someday category, is the Frommer Stop. Long recoil action pistol firing rounds suitable for a blowback? Ridiculous over-engineering, and yet completely awesome.



Again, I say DOOO ITTT!!!!! DOOOO ITTTTT!!!!!!

The reasoning behind the long recoil system is that they were chambered in 7.65mm and 9mm Frommer, which were hotter loadings than normal .32 and .380acp. No idea how much hotter, but it seems like something I should try with mine.



The grips on mine are carved horn, where most were wood. I want to find a wood pair just because the horn ones are pretty fragile.

There is a gun auction I'm going to tomorrow that either has a stop or a frommer m29 and I'm going to see if I can't snag something on the cheap, otherwise 175 is darn reasonable. Also that person on gunbroker has a JP Sauer 1913 that looks pretty kickass.

$175 is a damned good price, if I hadn't just bought something else from "The List" I'd be all over this one.

I have a Sauer 1913, and it is neat to look at, but that's all I can say. Mine doesn't work properly, no matter how I reassemble it it still doesn't reset the trigger and the disconnector doesn't disconnect. So for now it stays unassembled.

Late model FN 1910, made between 1971ish and 1983. Sold in Europe and Canada, but not the US due to GCA1968, although allegedly some came in through exemptions for police.

Because the best part of owning an autoloading rifle is painstakingly hoarding every single golden nugget of moon-brass and/or paying $2 per round for factory ammo.

Bah, it's only $1.25 a shot for Hornady and Remington factory .35 Remington.

Suuuuure, if you have one in an extremely common caliber like 35 Rem or 300 Savage.

I almost - almost - want to get one in .30 Rem or .32 Rem just so I need to rely on Old Western Scrounger for ammo and then stretch the lifespan of that brass to the absolute limit with Trail Boss.

You can get new .30 Remington brass from Midway, and it's the same case head size as .25 Remington and .32 Remington.

I haven't seen one up close - does the stock look like the fit around the upper tang is... off? Like maybe it was a repair/replacement that wasn't shaped properly (the vertical gaps at the wrist make me think yes)? Or is that how all pistol-gripped 81s look?

Looks about right to me, the angle of the picture makes it seem more severe than it really is.
