Re: who here has an AK?

Well I don't know about anyone else but I am impressed! That is a nice array on rifles. How do you like the bullpup?

Re: 9x18 Mak brass

Check for Starline brand brass at Midway. I believe that you can order direct from them as well. Do a Google search and you will find them.

Re: I got my S&W M&P (.38 S&W Ctg) Parkerized

Good job...you will like the park after it has some wear on it. Here is a pic of a S&W M15 that I traded for a few years ago. It too had almost no finish left so I had it parkerized. I love it! Mine is a lighter finish than yours, but functional nonetheless.

Re: who here has an AK?

Here is mine...a MAK 90 with Ironwood designs walnut stocks, Tapco SAW grip & fire control parts. I threaded the barrel for the flash suppressor. When I got it, it had the thumbhole stock & was uncomfortable as all get out. Now it is a politically correct & good looking AK!

Re: Couldn't resist the wood STOCKS!!

That is a sweet Smith! I think you did good on the trade. I had an XD45 that I just never warmed up to. One thing about it is that the more you shoot it, the better/smoother it will get! I notice too that it has a pinned barrel, and the firing pin is still on the hammer nose. Smith doesn't make them...

Got an AR15

I had been wanting one for a while, and have been researching doing a build, but at the Topeka gun show this weekend a dealer had these Olympic Arms AR's for $600...cheaper than the build I was looking at. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but will let you know how it does!

Re: Barsony IWB holster review, pics

That looks like a well made holster...where may I ask did you get it? I have had a Don Hume IWB for the PPK on order since October! I finally cancelled that order and am searching for another option!

Re: Bought some more stuff.

I love the Lee auto disk! I only load for pistol calibers and it is easy to switch between the different ones. I keep a notebook of what disks throw what charge of the powders I use, so setup is a breeze. I have a 5 gallon bucket of tumbled .45ACP cases I am going to start working on...that will giv...

PA63 Disassembly?

I just got an FEG PA 63 and love it. Have already updates all the springs, but not I want to polish the aluminum frame. Can anyone give me a web site that has detailed disassembly, reassembly instruction? I would appreciate it!

Re: Finally finished my AK

Cool pic Sarge! I always laugh when you see on the news that someone was arrested and he had 4 guns and 200 rounds of ammunition, like that was a lot! Speaking of killing hogs, a couple of years ago the public hunting land around here was infested with wild hogs, and they grought in the National Gua...

As is yours, Ric! You did a good job on that WASR. I wish I could put a bayonet on mine, but I didn't want to go to that much effort!

Re: Finally finished my AK

Since you showed me yours, I will show you mine :lol: This is a 922 compliant MAK90 with Ironwood Designs walnut stocks, Tapco trigger group & SAW grip. I got it in a trade for an FEG Hi Power, and never did like it in the politically correct thumbhole stock, so I made a "real" AK out of it. I even ...

Re: Finally finished my AK

Sweet! You did a good job on that AK. Century builds are famous for having to be "tweaked" but it looks like it was worth the effort.
