Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I actually kind of miss the RIA 1911 I used to have. I traded it to a friend for a Ruger P89 and my friend no longer has the gun. So trading the P89 for the 1911 isn't an option anymore. I heard RIA is a solid firearm. What are your experiences? That's one of those guns I wish I'd gotten when they ...

Re: Considering buying an SKS, but...

If you live in a ban state you probably can't add much in the way of CRAPCO accessories anyway. As it sits in its original form, the SKS is the best choice for arming illiterate peasant conscripts overnight. Start adding plastic to it and not only does it get real ugly, it loses the simplicity and r...

Re: Considering buying an SKS, but...

The 59/66 is certainly an interesting piece of history what with the NATO grenade launcher on a Warsaw Pact weapon. You can even get a tennis ball or golf ball launcher for it. I've seen some really cool trench art, as well has Beverly Hills 90210 stickers, on the stocks. It is not, in my opinion a ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Dang. I just checked Gun Broker and there's one listing for an SKS-D with a high bid of $995 right now. If that SKS-D I saw in Houston three years was going for only 450, I missed out on a heck of a deal then. :gonk: I got mine in probably '06. It was considerably less than $450. Part of an estate ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

If you can find ten SKS rifles for $1000 let me know, heck $2500. Unfortunately without my time machine we're both out of luck. For decades the SKS was a $100 gun. I know I'm getting old and I've been around here forever, but when I first joined ZS, dealer cost on a Yugo 59/66 was $88. But hey, tha...

Pro Ported. My old Mossberg was Pro Ported and it helped quite a bit with follow-up shots. Not pro-ported, Vang Comp, or at least a very good copy.Same idea, different execution. The Vang Comp System also includes lengthening the forcing cone and back boring the barrel to tighten shot patterns but ...

Re: anybody know why Southern Ohio Guns has no guns for sale?

A lot of small brick and mortar guys hate Bud's because it kills their profits. When I was a counter commando we typically made about $100 over dealer price on any gun except Hi-points and Yugo SKS's when they were dirt cheap. Along comes Buds and a few kitchen table dealers and the profit goes down...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

These trailers have got me on edge! Talking zombies! If only no one had thought of that! This series is suffering a slower, more painful and worthless death than even Coral. I guess it speaks volumes that I'll probably DVR it and watch it writhe later.

I can't remember now where I saw a discussion on that Sony before ( I'm pretty sure it was that one) might have been on here years ago. It was really popular with prisoners for its size and durability. I'll do some google-fu later when I'm on my computer

Re: The $100 870

Don't really know what I want out of it either. There were several up for grabs and it turned into kind of a feeding frenzy. At the price I paid there is almost nothing I can do to it to make it worth less money. Spray on bedliner is another option for the stock :crazy:

The stock is a speed-feed synthetic. It's on decent shape, it'll look Krylon new when I'm done. The barrel is 24".If I go the WESCOG route, I won't re-thread it.

Picked this up off another board. Shipping and transfer bring it to right at a buck fifty. It's solid, just the orange furniture and a nice "patina". Even threaded for chokes.
