Nominaly me, but as often as not her: S9

also sitting in garage waiting to be cleaned up, OLD 60's or 70's remmington 12ga pump (model???) that used to be my aunts skeet gun, but has been sitting in my parents garage since i was 12 and tried to shoot skeet w/it before range guy let me use a 20ga. Restoring would be a higher priority if I had a place to shoot some trap localy.

Colt Commander

Any more than that and my very understanding wife may start to lose her sense of humor!

GP-100

Jim,

if you have the option, look for an older GP-100.....i have one that i bought new back in '94....every time i look at a newer one at a show or gun shop...man they just don't feel as well made to me....that of course may just be personal bias, but the don't seem to have as smooth an action anymore.

RangerM9 - What is a Saiga 7.62 carbine?

I didn't know they offered a Carbine version....Hmmmm


I will post some pictures of the collection after the armory room is finished. I got several very exquisite Breakfronts that I am having converted to gun rack format, rather than for formal dining ware, which they were made for.

I had the glass tinted on all of them already and had recessed lighting installed. Thus, with the lighting off, nothing is visible internally.
When you turn the lighting on, which is rigged to a dimmer switch, depending on how bright the light is, it varies the degree in which you can see the contents inside. Good way to conceal the firearms and show them off when I want to. I really haven't gotten around to playing with the setups yet, because they are still being worked on, but, I might change the glass out for SPD glass. I don't know yet. More info and pics when this project gets finished. I hope that it looks like a high-end display case at the end...akin to an Atelier or a jewelry store.

Greg,

Thanks for the advice. I've actually arranged to buy one that was made around 1988 but only has about 100 rds through it. The owner works for the Sheriff's department out in Oregon and has an S&W habit -- so the Ruger's been a safe queen. Hopefully I'll have it in the next week or two.

For what it's worth, some of the folks on the Ruger forum gave the same advice -- they felt that quality control wasn't as good today as it used to be at Ruger. So you're not alone in your feeling that the older guns are better!

Thanks so much. I myself couldn't find that info on the EAA site. Great work.
Hartzpad says that the Hunter front end can be switched out for the AKM front end. Here is what he said to me:


You have to somehow get the lower
handguard retainer on the barrel by either cutting it in half and
reattaching it or by taking off and replacing the front sight base and gas
chamber. You also have to file a groove for the handguard retainer to grab
onto. Any Bulgarian or other gas tube will work on the Saigas.

More info from another member of GT:

Not without the addition of a lower handguard retainer (for the lower) and a new gas tube with handguard retainers.
