Lusting after that 1911 has got me thinking about how much I want a Dan Wesson Guardian, too.



Unfortunately there are 4 or 5 varieties of 1911 that I'd like to own.

I don't care that it needs a gunsmith after you sneeze on it the wrong way. It's the most aesthetically pleasing revolver ever designed.

it boggles my loving mind that colt stopped making it

"sure we have this HUGE name cachet and basically have the market cornered on a factory pretty princess safe queen "luxury" revolver and plenty of history as a police revolver, let's stop making that."

literally water-on-the-brain retarded

Then they thought "Let's also sell 1911s with features that are 30 years behind competing brands and charge absurd amounts of money for them." The only reason they're still in business is their sole-source contract with the government for M4 carbines.

I really like how shiny it is. It's like it's nickle plated, only it's blued. What kind of finish is it?

It was polished A LOT, then hot blued.

FNH now makes M4s as well.

All of the relevant patents have expired, but the DoD has maintained a sweetheart deal where Colt owns the rights to the M4 technical data package. That means that Colt gets a 5% royalty on every M4 that FN produces for the government.

Smith & Wesson is bringing back the 586, and while I haven't had a chance to handle one it really looks like the ideal double-action revolver for me.



I'm also not entirely sure why I still don't own even one Evil Roy.

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?

Gtab posted:

It's a Boberg XR-S. It's a "bullpup" pistol, and rounds are loaded in the magazine backwards. Like, in the grip, the bullets are pointing backwards. It has an arm that grabs them and flips them forward. It is dumb as gently caress and brand new and therefore vaguely interesting.

They're not backwards. They're facing forwards, and they're pulled out of the magazine through the back like a machine gun pulling rounds out of a belt.

Well I was at my local gun megastore today and bought a 1981 Marlin 336 in 30-30 that used to belong to the GA Department of Natural Resources. It's pretty beat up and needs a new firing pin and extractor, but it was under $200 and I didn't realize how bad I wanted one until I saw it. I'm going to put a 2x scout scope on it and it's going to own.

There are no stampings on it. Just an old peeling sticker and on the handguard that said GADNR and had the a number written on it.

that's depressing about the stampings/sticker though I really love guns from various agencies, especially non-police/non-military ones. like i would enjoy weapons marked USDOE or something like that.

The GA DNR only has like 50 officers so this gun was probably bought at a K-mart or something.

Do it. I have a 93R17 with a BSA scope (Thumbhole stock and heavy barrel), and it's very accurate.

Welp, I just bought it. It came with a lovely plastic stock but a Boyds target stock should turn it into a pretty good little laser gun for a total budget of less than $400.

I have a problem. I am addicted to AR-15s. I already have 3 and there are so many variants that I still want:

- a slab-side Colt SP1
- a Mega MA-TEN with a 24" 6.5 Creedmoor barrel
- an 8" 300 Blackout SBR with suppressor (or an AAC Honey Badger )
- an XM177E1 clone
- a 6.5 Grendel SPR

Somebody please help me.

The biggest advantage with caseless is the potential reliability. After all, a huge portion of malfunctions with modern auto-loaders are related to extraction and/or ejection.

Commander size 1911s are the only ones that do anything for me.

I handled an American Classic commander 1911 in stainless steel. It got really good reviews for an entry-level 1911 and it looked great...

...until I turned it over and saw the world's most garish rollmark.

What I want this instant is a reasonably-priced stainless commander with a tiny rollmark.

I want Ruger to make a 9mm version of the mkIII.

It's not possible. The MkIII is a blowback design so you couldn't just scale it up to 9mm. I might work as a .380 but I don't know if the bolt would have enough mass. As GTAB said, get a Nambu because that's what Bill Ruger based the mkI on in the first place.

wilfoy

A Hi-Point has the smallest slide possible for a blowback 9mm. Think about that.

wilfoy
Jan 21, 2004


VSEPR posted:

That's not entirely true. Hi-Point chose to use Zamak (read: POT METAL) instead of steel to keep costs down. The Zamak is less dense than steel, so it needs a larger area to make up the same mass. If the slide was actual steel, it would be much smaller and more attractive so long as it was designed by a non-retard (but still heavy and more expensive).

I don't know about much smaller. Zamak alloys have a density around 0.24 lb/in3, while 4140 steel is 0.28 lb/in3, so a steel slide of the same mass would have 85% of the volume.

Mini-30: a really cool gun
Mini-14: OMG IT'S poo poo STAY AWAY WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

To answer the question, Mini-30's are really cool and you'll regret selling it for a bolt-action. The obvious solution is to save up some money so you can have both.
