Yeah, certain wood-&-steel rifles can't help but catch the eye. Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

Especially when it's old wood that shows some use. I'm looking forward to getting it to my buddy's farm to see how it does. It's a battle rifle, so I'm not expecting super tight long-range groups, just reasonable accuracy, enough to deal with predators around the new homestead that need a little more than 5.56 persuasion.

Academy has the Shield listed at $289 + $50 gift card.

The rebate lowers your end price to $189. That puts you down in to the HiPoint price range.

Its a great theory.
"It’s time to disarm the police," Jamaal Bowman wrote on Twitter before retweeting one user's response that police in the United Kingdom "carry no guns" and thus have "killed no citizens."
There is a tiny plot hole.

But I am all for it. The NY police are very uppity. Take away their guns and they can learn them some manners.

I would like to point out, they have accepted the foam filled rifle case. Not the rifle ( which isn't being slept on :wink: ) . Plus cat's don't normally use firearms in their bid to rule the world. They are ninja's with born ninja weapons, which humans must purchase at Amazon

Looks pretty sharp, but it ain't for the poors...



TTAG - Dan Wesson’s New DWX Combines the Dan Wesson Single Action Trigger with CZ Ergonomics and Capacity

What do you get when you combine the exceptional single-action trigger pull of a Dan Wesson 1911 with the excellent ergonomics of and capacity of the venerable CZ 75 platform? Dan Wesson has melded the two into a new hybrid design they call the Dan Wesson DWX. You can get one in either 9mm Luger or .40 S&W. The 9mm version packs 19 rounds and the .40 model will accommodate a full 15.

The DWX features a crisp single-action fire control group from a Dan Wesson 1911 and combines it with the ergonomics and capacity of a CZ pistol. The grip angle and contour originate with the venerable CZ 75, providing an incredible fit for most shooters. Likewise, the full-size DWX is compatible with standard CZ 75 grips, while the compact can utilize those from a 75 Compact.

Took the BM59 out to my friend's place today and set out a couple of milk jugs filled with water in one of the fields ~100 yards away. Missed with the first shot, way low and right, realized I was mistaking the left side front sight ears as the sight post (to my everlasting shame), corrected my sight picture and put the next five all through the jug I was aiming at without realizing I was actually hitting it until enough water drained out that I knocked it over. Let my buddy take the other jug with four shots, then put the last ten in the mag through both jugs, alternating between them.

The rifle shoots like a dream and the sights were dead on (once I stopped being a blind idiot and found the sight post). My buddy enjoyed shooting it so much he dug out one of his M1 Garands to compare with it. By far the BM59 was much more pleasing to shoot, with much lighter recoil (but a helluva shockwave from that tricompensator for bystanders).


Overall, I has a happy. :mrgreen:

Got an email from Classic Firearms a couple hours ago that said my gun should be arriving at my FFL this Saturday.

That is fantastic! I didn't know they felt that good. I am excited to hear that and I'll have to be open to getting one some day of the situation arises.

So the cats accept it and you accept it. Nothing more is needed.

Not a firearm, but I'm a happy boy nonetheless. :clap:

Had the winning bid on a 2005 Smart Parts Nerve. They didn't make very many, and only made them for a couple of years. I bid on one in decent shape a few months ago, but my max bid was $200, and it went for $250. I got this one for $138, including shipping. This thing looks NIB. Not a scratch or wear mark on it anywhere. Seller said it came from a storage auction.

I don't have any air in my tanks to test fire it, but I did throw a new 9-volt battery in it. The board turns on and boots, the speaker chirps, the solenoid clicks, and the breech eyes work. If its been sitting as long as I suspect, it'll definitely need the O-rings replaced. Spool valve paintball guns have dominated for the last 10+ years, but I have a soft spot for these old poppet valve markers.

My Tokarev is close by, but I won't have hands on it until Monday.

FedEx tried to deliver it to my FFL today, but they were closed, so now my Tokarev is sitting in a FedEx center in New Mexico until then.

I figured this would happen since my FFL is only open until 1PM on Saturdays and my Tokarev was due there at 4:30 pm.

Ugh....Just noticed PSA has their chrome-lined premium Mid-gas Mock Dissy uppers back in-stock. I had one years ago, but sold it to a buddy who liked it even more than I did.

I'm tempted to pick-up another, just for shits-&-giggles. I always thought they looked pretty sharp with a MOE handguard....and I still have the M7 bayonet I shortened the handle on to fit a dissy. :crazy:

Do they make these with a rail? I don't get why so many AR's are sold without rails. That's nice that there back in stock. Had I had that option when I bought my pistol kit. I would have gladly opted for the chrome lined.
