I am slow today. I near needed google translate before I figured out you built it to fit his can.
too funny kemoswabbie
Jumped into the PCC pool with a Troy A-4 9mm. Swapped out a couple preference items & color coordinated a bit (because I’m artsy fartsy like that! Lol) Incredibly fun gun to shoot, very consistent right out of the box, just one elevation & two windage adjustments to get it zeroed with the irons (just added the optic, so I’ll have some work to do next time out.) Gonna be needing to get more ammo!
My Troy uppers are very accurate. Would recommend Troy products to anyone.
It was my birthday so I added a new Smith to the collection.
A lightly used Model 29 with a 4” barrel, seen here with one of its ancestors, an eighties vintage Model 29 in nickel with a 6” barrel.
Even James Bond favored a 29:
Then i guess the other 69 is more applicable
Having several rounds of 7.62x39 but the only rifle owned was a vintage ruskie SKS…no better reason needed to get out the gun brick.
Nifty flash hider snd smooth top handguard, but lack of a chamber flag from the factory was was a slight letdown.
@DirtSalior Geeez,…you obviously missed my subtle sarcasm aimed at all the recent hub-bub about chamber flags.
Don’t forget to get a Rhode Island Red barrel cover…
Funny thing, when I was at the LGS picking up that BCA gun, a fellow in line for the BG check was picking up a Henry large loop 22mag and…get this …a pristine S&W model 29, only not in nickel. He was overjoyed to find that [somewhat rarely for sale] piece!
An original copy 29 is hard to find, they’re out there but not cheap. Mine has the original box, wood presentation case and maintenance kit.
New examples are available and are produced in limited quantities by Smith currently. A fun hand cannon for sure.
Well i got me a new 22 rifle that i could mount me a scope to mainly to get my mail in match scores up with the rest of you scoped guys. A good family friend ive got a few old guns from in the past called me and had a old tube fed bolt action 22 so i was all over it. Turned out to be a ward westernfield no 41 22s, l and lr. Which was made by mossberg&sons 1936 to 1938 based on there model 45. It was missing the rear folding peep sight no big deal it was missing the front sight post also no big deal since a scope was my plan. Everything seemed to function so i bought it. Was working on getting it cleaned up and checking everything internal and thats where the heartbreak comes in. Couple important spring clips was broke and missing that feeds and aligns the bullets and one of the ejectors was broke off the bolt. I went straight to numerich website and all the parts are listed but out of stock. And being it wasnt more popular model and was only made for 2 years there will never be any more parts. The family friend got the rifle in a lot at a auction and offered my money back but it wasnt alot so ill just add it to my collection of non functioning “parts” guns. And maybe ill find another one day or find someone who needs it for the parts that are still good.
@HandyDave Like this?
Im pretty sure thats a remington in your pic. The winchester 67a i beleave had that fluted stock as well. But i think thats a remington 33? Heres a pic of a nice version of what i got with all the parts.
My North of Texas(NoT) house gun. Gas system and recoil spring wraps around the barrel. Right eject, left operating handle. And 2, 20 round drums for Mickey Mouse. Fits in a mandolin bag, in case I ever want to rejoin the band. Tennis bag works too, just not my racket. Cheap an so far it eats everything I fed it.
I received my 1969 Izmash build back from Jim Fuller and his team at Fuller Phoenix.
It was away with them for six months but was worth the wait. Beautiful build quality.
It was a numbers matching parts kit that I bought back in February. I purchased a Childress receiver with correct Russian markings, a US trigger and barrel for 922r compliance and sent it off to Fuller in April.
So here it is all complete:
I’ve ordered my new LR toy
Savage 110 Elite Precision 6.5 creedmoor, 26" barrel
Will get a BT72-ARCA from Atlas Bipods
and a Vortex Strike Eagle FFP 5-25x56 EBR-7C MRAD
I already have my die from Whidden Gunworks
can’t wait now till the range !
Will put more pictures as soon as I have it all done
