Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

Yeah, unfortunately the time for cheap Mosins has passed. Thankfully they're still not at really horrible pricing yet.

I mean,  I'll probably eventually grab one.  But not before the Hi Point Yeet Cannon 9 comes out.  That will by my next gun purchase no matter what.

Had two mosins, a Russian hex and a Chinese t53

 

Sold them both because corrosive ammo sucks, the Russian is better as a spear than a rifle, and the t53 kicked like a bitch and only was accurate with the bayonet out.

 

Rather just shoot my Remington 700 ADL .308

What'd you pay for the one you just bought?

The proper matching historically significant one I paid 300$ for, a bargain in the current day and age.

The non-matching (or, as others have mentioned, force matched) SMC stock one came with a scope and bipod, and I paid 200$ for it. It's a hex whereas my nice one is a round receiver.

The SMC stock one shoots nice and is accurate enough for my needs (it'll never be a MOA rifle, they weren't designed for that).

I'd really like to find an Arisaka though, preferably one that hasn't been butchered.

Good luck, I have yet to see one in unmolested condition, they've all been pretty badly bubba'd up, and what is left on the market seem to be the 1945 final war year rifles going for insane money (and so dangerous to fire, you might as well hang them on your wall instead)

It's the same as a .308, felt recoil wise, but when you are shooting 50 to 100 rounds the mosin starts to hurt.

Fair, I figured it might.  I've only fired 100 rounds of .308 in one sitting out of my CA C308.  With the factory muzzle brake and rubber butt pad, your shoulder doesn't really start hurting with that.

 

Maybe I should try 100 rounds out of my savage, lmao

And that seems to be the problem currently. Anything "Soviet" has a ban on it now and what's out there has stupid prices. 

Ditto ammo, I'm seeing certain "soviet" rounds being offered for 2$ a round. Are you people insane? It's 20-40 cents a round during normal times, but like everything else, a national crisis brings out the worst in people.

I have a legit Korean War converted Arisaka chambered in .30-06, it is not for the faint of heart. Thankfully, it’s not a last ditch but it sucks so much to fire that I’ve only function tested it.

You are a brave person to fire that....

Only ones around here I've seen for sale privately have been "sporterized" (aka butchered)

Apparently at one point in time these were so cheap, much like Mosins, that people figured "why not?" and did all kinds of horrible things to them.

Now they are all gone, or in the hands of collectors who want prime money to part with them.

Just having one as a shooter, is asking too much it seems.

Ditto on the Mosins (I've seen loons asking 1000$ for one with an archangel stock and a 10 round detachable magazine. I want to slap those people with a spoiled fish, repeatedly, for such abominations)

Haven't even looked for a Kar 98....I shudder to think what's out there.

Thinking about picking up a S&W 642 as my first firearm and concealed weapon. Leaning towards the 642 vs. Glock 43 because wanted something more streamlined and wheel gun reliability

With a revolver, you’re stuck with 5 to 6 shots.  The glock 43, you have 6.  If you look at other popular, reliable, semi autos.  You have the S&W shield 2.0... you get a 7 and 8 round mag. With the 7 round mag it’s about the size of the 43.  Then there’s the Sig P365 and Springfield Hellcat, both are roughly the size of the Shield and 43, but the 365 carries 10 rounds 9mm, and the Hellcat 12.

There's a lot of emphasis on the reliability of revolvers, but I think to an extent it's not as relevant these days. I've re-timed several older revolvers and fit all the little hands and locks, and there are some very small pieces in there. S&W makes good revolvers, but they still have a lot of smaller parts in there. Something like a Glock with a titling breech lockup can be run very hard and function fine, there are no small parts like there would be in a revolver that are subjected to that type of stress if not cleaned and lubricated adequately.

 

I'd say personal preference for how each fits your hand would be more important though, because either one is going to be just fine in the long run unless you just neglect cleaning and lubricating them for very long periods of time.

There is no such thing as good deals anymore.  Inflation and popularity along with import restrictions killed that off.  I used to get No1Mk3 Enfields for $99, my Yugo Sks was $99, paid $120 for my M-44 Mosin.  These days when you can find that stuff it's pricey.  The latest import "deals" if you wanted to call them that I have found on a new shipment coming into the states from Ethiopia.  https://www.royaltigerimports.com/category-s/1900.htm

Not only that, but reloading is slower than with a semiautomatic.  That's my two primary issues with revolvers.  They may be fun to shoot (not sure, I've never had one), but I would never have one for my EDC.

They are way fun to shoot, depending.  I would like to own a snub nose .38 just to own one.  But I doubt I'd carry it more than on the super rare occasion.

I was considering getting a second rifle. Currently have the AK-47/AKM.
I've seen a lot of 5.56/.223 AR-15s jam on ranges, so I don't know that I'd go with that & G36 are stupid expensive. (anything over $1k is considered a ferrarri to me.) I saw some Colt manufactured AR-15/M4 so was considering maybe that'd be more reliable. At $999 vs $750~$799 I figured it'd be worth it to get the same one the military buys.

 

I was bouncing between a .50 Beowulf because even though it's an AR-15, it's a 50 cal.

I also was looking at some 308. Just browsing mostly. The AR-15 looking 308 are cool but... M1A/M14, G3 & FAL are so much more original in my opinion.
Any of you guys have any thoughts between the calibres? Any cool 308 rifles?

 

I was browsing some of the surplus rifles. Lots of cheap Caracinos. (Relatively cheap) a random $150 Mauser sent to like South America or something. Just wondering... is the ammo going to be produced for much longer or go up absurdly in price? I also like the WW2/Korean War M1 carbine but same concern with ammo prices.

 

Also, I got the Walther PPS M2. Thing is sooo comfortable in the hands. Just gotta wait for the permit to finish so I can get it in like 6 months haha. It only came with 2 mags though. Only the "military" version comes with 3.
PPQ was comfy too but rather large. Mossberg makes plastic magazines & I wasn't too into that. PPK was nice, but I saw a lot of people get slide bite, they're much more expensive & shoot a more expensive less powerful round. 1911 were out of the price range but I'd feel confident carrying cocked & locked.

Don’t take any of my posts seriously.
