  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Had my choice between a "very new" M9-A1 (3 10 round mags w/box), and a used M40-A1. Picked the .40, SMI import, s/n 04708x. 2 12 round mags, no box. What do I need to know? Right choice? Thanks in advance! Gary Semper Fi Semper Fi - Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    So I just received an Email from Dr Piaza or in my friend of circles he is known as Pizza-Boy. Anyhow His latest scam is to charge you a $500 and soon to be $1000 transfer fee for all of your To Be Determined memberships that you may have stocked up from all his "other deals" I confirmed this...
  4. Other Rifles
    Hi all, First post. Looking to buy a Pro Hunter and would appreciate any advice. My b/g is mainly in smaller calibres and want to buy a centrefire rifle to try it out. Currently my budget is pointing towards a ProHunter, most likely in .243 (as that would be enough for the ranges I'd be...
  5. Other Rifles
    Gentlemen, I've got a few questions about Steyr rifles: 1. What is the practical difference between SSG 04 and 04 A1 models? I understand that it is a chassis, and that one can mount some extra stuff on it, and that it looks cool :-) but any other tangible difference than that? Accuracy...

    Does any one have any experience with a Sig M400? The shelves at the stores are thin (Thanks to the Election) but I found a Sig for $999 with BUIS AND MAGPUL stock, grip and rail covers. It also had a 1/7 barrel. I don`t really know if that matters. Any thoughts?

    Hi All, Just a hello to all the Steyr fans out there! I do not own a Steyr yet, but hoping to take the plunge soon. I hunt mostly with a quartet of Winchesters... 2 pre-64's in 22 Hornet and 35 Whelen,and 2 lever actions: one is a model 88 in .308 and a model 94 XTR Big Bore in 375 Winchester...
  9. Other Rifles
    Those who've been around here awhile know my fondness for the Czech vz58 - 7.62x39mm. Chris Bonesteel (aka Obiwanbonjovi) on the AK Forum is making a new set of front handguards for the vz and I couldn't resist. The order went in in December, they came two weeks ago, and I just got them...
  10. Other Handguns
    The P64 is a DA/SA blowback pistol that appears to be (because it is) very similar to Walther's PPK. The designers of the pistol deny that it's a PPK clone and insisted it is an original design---sure...:D In my opinion, the fact that it's very similar to the PPK is a good thing in my...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    I finally got to go to the range and shoot my new M9A1. It did not go as well as I had hoped. The gun started out great. I was dead on accurate with the gun. The Trap sights are really really great. People were coming over to look at the gun and its sights. My 1st group was three inches...
  12. Other Rifles
    Been reading many favorable reviews on the SWFA SS scopes with 30mm tube. Have had a vintage 12x Redfield with a bushing adaping it to the Steyr 26mm QR rings. Wanted a tactical style but being on a budget I could not bring myself to spring for the Steyr 30mm rings. Since I had vast ideas and...
  13. Anything Else
    Alot of us don't have the dough to shell out for an ADT, Brinks, etc. security system and service so I thought I'd start a thread where we could share what kind of cheap security devices we use and work well for us. I've invested in some door/window contact alarms and have found that they are...
  14. The Pub
    I have wanted a small or mid size SUV for a while. Well, the wife and I went looking at some late model vehicles. We spent all day at a local large dealership crunching numbers and fighting :twisted: At the end of the day I drove home in a KIA Sorento. 2004 model with the 3.5L 192 horsepower...

    "LAND OF THE DEAD" Horrible, terrible, I want my money back! Ok, I loved the remake of "Dawn of the Dead," and I like the original "Night of the Living Dead," but hated "Day of the Dead" and have mixed feelings about the original "Dawn of the Dead". That said, I have to say that "Land of...

    I'm looking into pickup up a .22 pistol. I am not real happy with the revolver I "inherited". Anybody have any thoughs or suggestions to share. Matches
  18. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    since I shot my new M40 2 weeks ago and had not cleaned it :( Tonight after having gone to the range and shot my new Walther I had the time to clean both guns. very similar in terms of ease to take it down. I hosed the gun out using brake parts cleaner, then scrubbed the bore. I decided just...
  19. Anything Else
    my local FFL while he was doing the transfer on my S-9 started tempting me. He offered me a XD Sub compact for dealer cost because he ordered it for a guy who backed out and stuck him with it. Got it for $385 + tax which was exact 3 cents over dealer cost. I wasn't really planning to buy one...
