S&W naming conventions are all kinds of hosed up, but isn't the 586 exactly the same as a 686 but with a blued finish?

Yes.

I would buy one if they didnt have the seam. Just make the exterior a sleeve and make the barrel internal, pinned, and we can all be happy.

Same.

I only have one datapoint for this theory so far, but it appears that the new run with fiber front sights has substantially better QC when it comes to the triggers and whatnot. If this is true I need to find a 2" White Rhino, to avoid the seam.
I also see that they are listing .40s&w and 9x21 as calibers for the Rhino. I wish they would have just released 9x19.

Is there a "once a pistol always a pistol" issue, or does that only go the other way?

Recently they've clarified that a pistol can be made into a title one rifle and then turned back into a pistol as long as at no point the short barrel and stock are on the gun at the same time

aaaawesome

Specifically, this ruling: http://www.atf.gov/regulations-ruli...ling-2011-4.pdf

quote:

Held further, a firearm, as defined by 26 U.S.C. 5845(a)(3) and (a)(4), is not made when a pistol is attached to a part or parts designed to convert the pistol into a rifle with a barrel of 16 inches or more in length, and the parts are later unassembled in a configuration not regulated under the NFA (e.g., as a pistol).

Risky posted:

I want an autoloader pistol chambered in .17 HMR. Why don't they make one?!?

There were a number of semi auto rifles in .17 HMR that got recalled because they ended up causing some KBs, IIRC. The problem was basically that they tried to scale a .22LR blowback rifle up to .22WMR/.17HMR and the line between "cycles" and "cycles too early" was hard to get right.
I imagine it would be a similar challenge in a .17HMR semi auto pistol.

I fired one fully auto with the stock and a can. It was awesome, way better than the Skorpion I fired next to it.

The one I shot had really drat annoying muzzle rise on FA. It was the worst of anything I shot that day, including a mini uzi and a BAR and others.

The one I shot had a VFG like so:



And I had no issues with it. Well, I mean, there was nothing I didn't expect while firing a machine pistol versus a proper SMG. There was some rise but I sort of accepted that.

What is a BAR like? I've shot an M2 carbine and a Thompson.

It was as awesome as you could hope.

Yes let's only talk about guns that are practical in this thread entitled "What gun do you want this instant?"

http://world.guns.ru/handguns/doubl...h-mp-412-e.html

I want one of these. I've wanted one of these for quite some time. It is unlikely that I will ever have one because the project was cancelled, the only existing examples are probably sitting in a dusty safe somewhere across the ocean thousands of miles away, and I don't think anyone makes a comparable model.

I want one so I can pretend to be a space detective.

On Rhino chat, I kind of want the 9mm Rhino this instant. They're supposedly coming out soon, but I'm not chomping at the bit due to their lousy quality control. I think that would do it on the Rhinos for me.

I only have one data point so far, but the recent Rhino I played with that had the factory front fiber sight seemed pretty solid.

The 9mm rhino listed on the Chiappa site is in 9x21, which would make it, of course, somewhat less attractive in terms of "I can afford to shoot this a lot".

From a couple pages back but I'm interested to see what this summer brings for my gun collection. CO is very arid so swamp coolers are common here. My new (old) house has one. I may end up having to get some dehumidification devices for my safe or the entire gun room/workshop.

I'm in Arizona so we've got a bunch of swamp coolers here too, the only time I've ever had any rust appear was towards the end of a week long monsoon. I've kept guns in swamp cooled houses for years and never had a problem.

Well, you didn't have to go through an FFL until some nutjob shot the president with a mail order milsurp rifle, so we can't have nice things anymore. Such a system would probably only last until the first mass shooting and then it'd be back to where we are now or worse.

The only margin of convenience I think you'll see from the ATF in the near future is if they actually do end up making the NFA/licensing system electronic and so as not to take 3-6 months.
