What have you bought since the AWB ended?


October 4, 2004, 12:32 PM
To be honest with you all, I haven't bought a thing. I was going to pick up some regular capacity mags but I decided to pay off all the credit cards and get the car ready for emissions this month.

Other than regular capacity mags, I really can't see myself needing any of the other stuff.

Am I crazy?:D

Ordered me a Rock River Arms Elite Carbine A4. Also ordered 4 30-round magazines from Tapco, which I won't be getting for awhile it's sounding like. That'll be all my Post-AWB purchases until my funds get replenished.:p

I bought a Para-Ordnance 14-45LDA. It's a pistol I've been wanting for awhile now anyways. Now that P-O has an offer for two free 14 round mags to go with the two 10 rounders that came with the gun, I decided the heck with it, I'd get it.

I also purchased a collapsible stock to put on my SAR-1. (Well, I actually bought the stock before the ban sunset, but it didn't officially go on until afterwards.)

October 4, 2004, 12:53 PM

So you got 4 mags for the price of two? Did you have to pay shipping for the regular cap mags?

Who else is having offers on mags like that? I think Beretta was one of the other ones?

I've built an all-RRA (except for a DPMS lower receiver) no-ban carbine with telescoping stock.

I bought RRA's post-ban A4 upper, because the primary banned feature I wanted was the stock; the bayonet lug and flash hider are nifty and all, and I might consider threading the barrel and adding a flash hider at some point, but the thing I really really wanted all during the ban was a carbine with an adjustable stock.


October 4, 2004, 01:05 PM
Two Colt LE 6920's and 15 Labelle 30 rd mags. :D

(and a *lot* of .223 ammo)

October 4, 2004, 01:06 PM
Just bought 1 15 rnd mag for my CZ-75. There will be mroe to follow as funds allow.

My Sunset party money has been swallowed by unexpected modifications I had to make to my Norinco M-14.

Seems the 7.62 bore in the barrel was actually the Russian size of 7.62.

In other words, I was getting lousy groups out of the rifle because I was putting .308 inch bullets down a bore that was .311 inches wide.


So, new barrel and cost of rebarreling (on top of the cost of free floating the old barrel and bedding the action before I discovered the bore problem)has sort of taken up the money I had stashed back for the Sunset.

But, I'm starting to get new money even now.


October 4, 2004, 01:32 PM
I'm having a few AR15 barrels threaded, and I have a stripped AR10 receiver that needs to be built out. That'll be next year's project the way life is going now...

October 4, 2004, 01:38 PM
Two standard capacity USP mags.

October 4, 2004, 01:43 PM
Just a few mags, should have ordered more while they were in stock for so little cash.

October 4, 2004, 01:45 PM
....and more ammo.

October 4, 2004, 01:50 PM

But a AK-47 or a FAL is in the planning stages, but it will be next year, as I found a 1950 Model 70 Winchester which is next in the que.

October 4, 2004, 01:52 PM
Hi Edmond,
In **********, we're business as usual as our AWB is still in effect.
Finances come first so unless you are really dying for something new...you're not crazy.

October 4, 2004, 01:56 PM

and a bunch of new D&H USGI teflon mags :D

October 4, 2004, 02:40 PM
I picked up a 25-round magazine for my daughter's 10-22. I wasn't really looking for it but it was there and it was only $20.... Time will tell whether it was worth it or not.

3 Colt ARs and a bunch of pistol mags (Glock17s and SIG226s).

Will buy a couple of more M1As with the eeevil, child-killing bayo lug as soon as I find them. Have not been looking. Big gun show in Indy the weekend of my birthday.:evil:

October 4, 2004, 03:18 PM
A Marlin 925 bolt action rifle in 22lr.

That's right. Has a 7-round magazine, baby. :D

October 4, 2004, 03:23 PM
I got a folding stock for my WASR-10.

October 4, 2004, 03:45 PM
Not a thing though it wont be long maybe some mags if prices come down on sig and hk but so far squat

Just got a great deal on a Ruger Super Redhawk in 454 Casull :D

October 4, 2004, 03:49 PM
3 LEO glock 19 mags. One of which is on my hip at this moment.

October 4, 2004, 03:55 PM
I got a folding stock for my WASR-10.

How about a pic?:D

Has anyone run into the problem of things being out of stock due to high demand?

October 4, 2004, 04:52 PM
Tapco folding stock for the AK.
Some magazines for a sig P226 which I can't legally buy, so I guess those magazines will be collecting dust for another 2 years....

October 4, 2004, 05:17 PM
Nothing related to the AWB, as I already have plenty of 30 rd. AR mags and all my pistolas are 1911 type.

I have picked up a K-31, a Yugo SKS and a Colt NRM. :)

October 4, 2004, 05:48 PM
I wasn't all that excited about the sunset.
Since none of this stuff was actually banned, I bought pretty much everything I wanted anyway.
But, within the last week I realized there were a few things that I wanted, that I couldn't get during the ban and made a few orders.
HK AR15 magazines
Beta C magazine for the AR15.

If either or both turn out to be everything they are cracked up to be, I am ordering more.

October 4, 2004, 06:36 PM
I wasn't all that excited about the sunset.

Ditto - I don't own any guns that take "high cap" mags, except for an HBAR and 30 rounders were always available for it. I bought most of mine for $10 a piece, slightly used by the Guard. :)

I'm glad the AWB did sunset - but I was already in the process of buying a FA UZI so it didn't do alot for me.

October 4, 2004, 06:47 PM
both of my pistols are 1911 type, so no mags for those.

I have however picked up 2 dozen new mags for my AR (grey labelles) and have another dozen on order from TAPCO--don't know when those will be here. I also picked up some used 20rounders. I also picked up a new upper for my m4, a 1/7 14.5 from CMMG with the permanent phantom. can't ever have too many mags for the AR. I'm not taking any chances on a new ban. especially if the two johns win in Nov.

I've also picked up a Savage 10fp-le2b and just got my first AK the other day. a damn nice maadi ak47. also I just ordered a CMP garand.

I think the wife might be right about holding off for a while before purchasing anything else.

October 4, 2004, 08:33 PM
20 Glock mags

when I can comfortably afford it, I'd like an AR15

October 4, 2004, 09:21 PM
Wasn't exactly a since the ban ended purchase. I had ordered a STI edge 10MM back in May. STI was nice enough to run late in delivery so when it shipped it came with standard capacity mags. I ordered a few extra while I was at it.

That will take care of excess funds for a while. :rolleyes:

October 4, 2004, 09:34 PM
I havent purchased anything yet, but I would pay good money for reliable 15 round 1911 mags :D

October 4, 2004, 10:54 PM
An 1899 Swedish Mauser.

Well, it did have a threaded barrel :D

October 5, 2004, 07:15 AM
A Springfield M1 Garand from ODCMP.

October 5, 2004, 07:45 AM
Two Beretta LEO mags.

October 5, 2004, 11:13 AM
A couple LEO mags for my G19.

October 5, 2004, 11:22 AM
Nothing yet. I'm hoping the election goes favorably, or I might have to scrounge up the money for a few things pretty quick.

October 5, 2004, 07:13 PM
Purchased 4 15 rounders for my G20s. I'll buy some for my G22 and mini-14 in the near future. I already have several for my P14, Springfield Ultra High-Cap, and a couple of Ruger handguns that I own. Eventually I'll probably buy a couple more for them too.

October 5, 2004, 10:01 PM
Magazines and more magazines. Some more after that.

October 5, 2004, 11:02 PM
I bought a DPMS m4gery and 15 extra 30 round mags and also 4 15 round mags for my Ruger P-89.

October 6, 2004, 12:16 AM
For AWB specials, just a couple of P228 mags.

But non-AWB: S&W 642, Mosin Nagant M44 & M39...

and the Charlotte Gun Show is this coming weekend. :uhoh:

Sure glad there's no missus around! :D

Xmas in Oct. Four XD40 LEO Mags. Four Sig P229 LEO mags and
a Tanfoglio Model P Compact along with a Rossi M971- 2" SS snub
and a Rossi M972 - 6" polished to a mirror finish.

Thats all. Oh, the machine gun shoot is this weekend and I normally
go on Friday to beat the crowd. Looking for a Russian AK-47 with
folder and the rest of the goodies.

October 6, 2004, 08:46 AM
Replaced muzzle brake w/phantom fh on my Bushy. Also, swapped the front sight post for one with evil bayonet lug and of course the telescoping stock. :D

October 6, 2004, 09:04 AM
Butler Creek folding stock for the mini-14.

October 6, 2004, 09:10 AM
What have I bought?...

A new yard. :scrutiny:

Lots of grass and bushes and mulch and someone else's labor (that's the best part :D ).

So, no new Sport Utility Rifles for me. Although, Christmas is coming soon... I see a flash suppressor in my future. Maybe a new lower with a telescoping stock, too.

BTW, anyone know if the barrel on a Bushy carbine (XM15E2S) can be safely threaded for a flash suppressor?

October 6, 2004, 12:05 PM
3 AR-15 Stripped Lowers.

October 6, 2004, 12:13 PM
A Para Ord s16.40. 16 rounds of .40 :)

October 6, 2004, 10:09 PM
Damn, living in California! IF the diving in Monterey wasn't so good....

October 6, 2004, 10:16 PM
A ban era M4gery because they cut me a great deal on it. Several 30 round mags, and I'll probably pick up a real collapsible stock this weekend.

The thought of getting a real muzzlebrake and flash suppressor has crossed my mind. :D

October 7, 2004, 06:08 PM
all i have bought was a stock for my ar....would like to pickup some mags for my 10/22..but the rest of the stuff was still available that i want...

October 7, 2004, 08:16 PM
Two Bushmaster ARs with all the evil features (except the bayonet lugs), AND...

Has anyone run into the problem of things being out of stock due to high demand?

Well, I WANT two FALs from DSA, and have the $$ for it, but DSA seems to have its head up its kiester these days. Four attempts by my dealer to place an order have gone unanswered, even after phone calls where he was told they'd "get right on it."

And coming soon....15 std cap magazines per firearm.

October 7, 2004, 10:56 PM
Four 30 round AR magazines from Wild.

October 8, 2004, 11:51 AM
Only thing I've bought so far since the AWB expired was a Taurus 85 snubby, which has exactly zero to do with the AWB. ;) I don't even currently own anything other than an M1 carbine that would take a mag with higher than 10 rounds, and surplus carbine mags have always been plentiful.

I might have to go grab myself another Beretta 9mm just because I like them and now I can get non-castrated mags.
