One gun to rule them all . . .
Sauer 16x16x7x57R It's going to Briley because the chokes are F/F which in our thick elk/grouse country is pretty silly. The side lever is the safety and the top lever activates the rifle barrel and raises a nice little 'V' sight though with the scope on claw mounts is less than terribly useful. However, if I was hunting grouse and a blacktail showed up I wouldn't waste time trying to mount the scope! I'm looking forward to this. Yanno, I've wanted one of these for about fifty-five years . . .
I agree I don't like this auto either, but I would carry it with the idea that if something went down and I had to use it in self defense, I'd be happy to give up this "plastic auto" instead of a Kimber 1911 or Colt Commander to local law enforcement, knowing full well that wouldn't want it either.
Nice looking grips. Who made them? Looks like a pair of scales I got from Gripmaker?
Finally got my new grips. Red finished wattle from Marschal.
They were from Brownell's.
Picked this up this past weekend. A pre 1921 M&P 38 Special. 6 digit serial number that starts with 2. In looking at several serial number data bases it puts as being manufactured sometime between 1915 and 1919. Bluing is about 90-95 %. Giving a good cleaning. Original grips with one small knick on the bottom of one of the panels. If I make it to 95 to 102 years of age I hope I am in as good of shape as this one....
That's a very special piece. Thanks for sharing that with us.
Kirk, that's a true beauty.
Here is the Ruger Mini 14 GB that I picked up a few weeks ago
This sat in the display case at my local shop for a few weeks. Fortunately it's old and obscure enough that most people don't know what it is. When they dropped the price I snapped it up.
German made Interarms import Mauser HSc .380 in nickel
Nice weapon,I had one years ago and let it get away.
I picked up a little used 380 Bersa yesterday.
My wife has one like that, and for the price, it is a good shooter, and feels good in your hand. It is a PPK knockoff.
I just saw that CZ is listing their neat little 527 mini mauser in 6.5 Grendel, so a trip to the gunshop tomorrow is in order.
If I was going to by a CZ it would either be in .505 Gibbs or 9.3x62. Can't really come up with a use for the Grendel being as I have a 6.5x55 but--enjoy!
LOL, thanks. Just noticed that my feet made it into the shot. The joys of Smart phone photography.
