Classic Firearms is out of stock. Was that it? Did I get fucked by being too poor to afford to buy funs for the last year?
I currently own two Mosins (91/30 & M38) and a Savage MkII FV-SR.
At what point do you go from "nice and original" to "nicely restored" to "butchered history"?
Would you consider steel whooling the finish off a semi badly rusted gun, then re bluing it "destroyed, restored, or original (as it technically is the original finish, etc)
Same for varnish/shellac/oil. At what point does it stop being a "clean up job" and move into the realm of "now its either going to be restored or butchered"
Well it depends on what you want. If you want to experiment and try to modernize a gun, i guess its okay.
But you asked for historical value. I believe that using the same finish and wood furniture usually used on the gun is pretty okay. Maybe even something similar in terms of finish, just slightly different. But never modify the core design, like the trigger, action, or barrel length. THEN it is a different gun, and has lost historical value.
In many cases, it depends on the gun. For example, you can get Krag rifles that have been bubba'd for about $300, but a military-spec rifle is closer to $1500. The collectors that pay over $1K for them are totally autistic for the original, pitted blueing.

What do you all think of 300 blackout?
is the 590a1 as good as people say? looking for a good all-around shotgun; use with clays, bird and deer hunting, etc.
do people make wood furniture for it aswell? not a fan of the synthetic look
You can call Mossberg and order a 500 stock or buy one elsewhere.
For everything you listed, a 26" or 28" barrel would be better than any of the shorter barrels on Mossberg's tactical shotguns.
You can extend a tube up to +8 easily. A 28" is flush at +6 or +7 usually.
The 500 uses a polymer trigger assembly, which is replaceable with the 590A1's metallic assembly.
The 500's come in a lot of finishes, so that varies.
The Nova/SuperNova are great guns, especially for hunting and moderate recreational shooting. They are very corrosion resistant. I do not recommend them for heavy usage like dedicated clay shooting, as they just don't hold up to the tens of thousands...

For whatever reason, I have developed an infatuation with helicopters recently. Post helicopters (doesn't matter what type). Argue about which is best. (Ospreys too, I don't care if they're technically not helicopters) Discuss them so that I can absorb your knowledge.
>Primer question: AH-64E, yes or no?
I just noticed the great emu wars were actually real.
So.. what the fuck? How the fuck could Australia loose?
Why didn't they anything else but Lewis guns? Gas? Bombs? Something else?
What the fuck, Australia?
Probably just ran out of ammo or had catastrophic stoppages in both guns.
>Why didn't they anything else but Lewis guns? Gas? Bombs? Something else?
In was in the middle of the depression. People were starving. They couldn't afford gas or bombs.
Some random local politician wants to up himself by getting the army (actually a local militia between ww1&2) to machinegun an emu plague.
On a big flat plain, emus run away as you try to traverse vickers gun at them.
Just a dumb political stunt, like building a mexican wall, or pretending they are syrian refugees.
>local boys go out and shoot gunz at emus, get paid anyway, buy beers, whythefucknot
I have found this Colt Python at a gun store 4h drive from home.
Not more pics on it on the web. Suposedly its in good condition internally and just ok outside...
Price is around 550$ (480€), and not for sale online (id never buy it without inspecting it but however)
Worth the drive just to see it? In which condition do you think it has to be for a good deal at said price?
Can't understand why
is this more """accurate""" ?
Yeah black people suck! Why are they all the same person?!?
What is the largest caliber firearm you've ever heard without hearing protection for any reason?
Speaking in terms of handguns, it was a 6 inch Taurus in .357
for long guns, it was an AR in .308 with a 16 inch barrel. Both of them were accidents. Both of them hurt.
Handgun: .45 ACP, although 7.62 tokarev is worse to hear without earpro
Rifle: uhhh, either 7.62x54, 8mm Mauser, or .30-06, I can't really remember what's the loudest
In general, it sucks but it won't make your ears bleed and you won't have permanent ringing in your ears like some of the pussies on here like to claim.
Yeah, I've heard quite a few gunshots in my life without hearing protection and I only have a slight ringing in my ears that I can only notice when I'm in total silence.
On top of it, I actually have very sensitive hearing.
How hard is it to get a m1/m2 carbine? Anyone know the price ranges or any other information/suggestions?
