But it IS fun to watch a guy like Jerry Miculek use a revolver so well it looks like it has a full auto switch!

 

 

That guy is amazing.

 

I used 1911's in my Navy Days before we were forced to switch to the 9mms. So all us "dinosaurs" of a certain age all preferred the 1911. I have a very good SA 1911 myself, but I will admit that as much as I love it, I can shoot my XD45 even better. That XD is like the best of a Glock with the best of a 1911 all in one package.

But a good revolver makes a great house gun. No worry about keeping it cocked and locked. Once you train and practice with it you learn to appreciate a good DA trigger and the marksmanship skills are fun to learn.

The moon clips on a revolver holds the darned bullets so they don;t fall all the way through the cylinder.They'd fall out the other end.The 45 revolvers are nice they shoot well and all but I just cannot get past the moon clips. They seem like something that Rube Goldberg thought up not a real good thing but a patch to make something work. I know they work great and with the proper tool you can load and unload them quickly. I just hate seeing those moon clips.

 

Rich the smileyes didn't come through on the last post I'm just bustin the Brits butt for trying to place a Lee Enfield in the same class as a Garand.It was the best battle rifle ever developed.Like SB said the 5.56 mm is I think too light the old Nato 7,62 mm was much better and then again the Garand with the 30-06 was even better.It doesn't matter which ammo is getting too darned expensive unless you reload and I just reload pistol calibers. I never got into reloading rifle cartridges but I might have to look into it .Even the surplus stuff is going for big bucks.

SB I'll admit the FAL is a great rifle I like the H K 91 and I wouldn't bypass a Gallil either.I hate to admit it but if something ever happened in the USA and it went to urban street fighting I think I'd rather have an AK47 .They are crude but you can bury them in the dirt for a month and dig them up they fire like nothing happened.They seem to eat any ammo you throw in them without misfeeding or jamming.I mean the FAL the H K and the Gallil are all much more expensive much more complicated and a lot less forgiving.The main thing is I like being able to decide which rifle I'd like to have not thinking about which axe handle or big wrench I'd like to have because they outlawed all the guns.Guns have been around for too many years .There is no way to round up all of them and if you cannot round up all of them then somebody is still going to have one and use one.If that's the case then nobody is safe. So I might as well keep mine .I'll turn them in right after they round up all of the others I promise.

Yep. Belch, grunt, scratch........ It's the "All Amuurickan" pass time. :feelssogood:

 

Here's a reproduction Hungarian SA85 I assembled last year. Mix of commercial USA made parts and some Original Hungy parts. The beech stock set is from California, receiver is from Minnesota. What a great country that we can build stuff like this with even higher quality than the original country made them. Semi auto of course. But its a fine little carbine. Did the parkerizing and baked on moly resin finish myself too. Couple months of bit by bit evening time labor in it.

 

 

I love taking this one to the range. Even "Gun guys" at the range usually don't know that AKMs can be this good.

 

It's part Hungarian, I'm part Hungarian. My Hungarian Grandma would be proud! :rolleyes:

 

This can happen only in the USA!

 

Easy to guess my life long interests. Bikes, guns and airplanes.

Catfish,

 

the moon clips may have served that function in some of the hastily converted 45cal revolvers of the WWII era. All the modern revolvers made for the 45acp headspace on the case mouth, the rounds do not fall through. The moon clip allows the rounds to be extracted. We could go shooting and I could prove it to you. I have lots of ammo and you would be welcome to help empty some of it.

 

 

My fave for urban use remmington 870 with a extended magazine. You just cant beat the sound of the slide, and I am confident in my skills with it.

 

"required motorcycle content" Which of the military rifles would be most correct to have in a scabbard on a Ural? I need a reason to buy a soviet rifle as I don't yet have one.

There are Romainian Romak III/PSL, Soviet SVD's (Dragunov), and Chineese NDM-86's. The first one ain't exactly in the same league as the the others and uses a different gas system, one that more resembles the AK.

 

Rich, have you ever heard of a Draganov snipers rifle? That looks a nice piece of kit.

 

They are pretty nice, but really mass produced like the AK.

The real Russian built Drags were not imported into the USA for very long. They are now expensive collectors items. Fine rifles too.

 

I do own a Romanian FPK/PSL rifle that many maketing departments try to pass off as Drags. Same caliber, but very different rifle. The PSL is like a RPK on steroids. Less accuracy potential than the Drag, but they can still be a fine DMR (Designated marksman rifle.) I plan to keep mine forever. It'd be a fine hunting rifle with a 8x PSOP scope.

 

I got mine a couple years ago as a kit built rifle from Tennesee Guns. Quality was less than stellar. Many feed and ejection issues. Very poor finish. The factory military grade built ones from Cuguir are better. But I fixed everything and it runs 100% now. It's a real pleasure at the 100 yard range. Sub 2" groups of five shots using cheap 1960's surplus Czech silvertip ammo.

 

Sorry I have no pics of my PSL on Photo Bucket.

But here is a reproduction of Iraq's Tabuk DMR that I built last year. Kind of like a poor man's M76 in 7.62x39 caliber. I have not had it out to the 100 yard range yet. But at 25 yards sighting it in three shots make a clover leaf hole. So I would expect sub 2" groups at 1000 yards and that is fine enough with me. It is a mix of USA parts including the fine teak stock set and some Yugo M70 parts. Again, I did the assembly and finish myself. That is a fun hobby. :feelssogood:

Well you brits can stand in line. Seems the Native American tribes are in the process of getting the land back. What they can't take as culturally significant and spiritual land they're buying back to put casinos on. I do believe they were here before you.

Question is who'll take America next ? History shows that no empire lasts forever.
