If you could choose one current production gun for free what would it be?

None of this (insert most expensive gun) then sell it to buy more. You have to keep it.

Remember, current production models only.

I'm curious to see what the choices would be.

Hmm... any gun or just civilian legal stuff?

Any gun: MP5SD - I have absolutely no use for it, but being able to shoot with no ear protection seems like a neat deal to me. :D

Civilian legal: Colt Match Target. Post AWB Sunset (fingers crossed)? M4. :cool:

The Heckler & Koch Mk23 SOCOM .45 with about 10 full cap mags, the sound suppressor, and the LAM (laser aiming module).

To see one of these in action, please see the movie Tears of the Sun.

It is the top Special Forces and SEAL side arm.

Pretty.....:)

March 17, 2003, 09:36 AM
Beorn; Not to be a bubble burster, but SOCOM isn't generally carried as a sidearm in the SEALs (from my knowledge). Too big, heavy, etc. P226 is the standard sidearm for SEALs.

March 17, 2003, 10:13 AM
Well to be realistic about it, ie no full auto, militarty etc.

1st choice would be a nice Ed Brown Cobra Carry or Les Baer 1911. I would really like to own a really high end nice 1911.

2nd Choice would be a real Colt Single Action Army.

3rd Choice would be a Marlin 1894 Cowboy in .357.


Totally unrealistic....

MP5SD2 or 3.

A Kolar 5 barrel set, 4 shotgun and one 338win mag, decked out with full coverage engraving, wood that would give you wood complete with hand cut fluer de lis checkering, presentation case and carry case, and all of that sort of stuff. A guess would be in the $100K+ range with the engraving and wood and extra barrels. Lead time would likely be 4-5 years too.:what:

If I got bored I could sell it and buy 150 nice guns to play with.

I've always wanted a ridiculously overpowered Safari rifle; maybe something along the lines of a Beretta double rifle in one of the Nitro calibers.

Of course... for sheer absolute absurdity, I might want a gold plated Desert Eagle (in .50 AE of course) with the 10 barrel, a matching gold plated laser, fancy hardwood grips, with a silver plated inset medallion shaped like that chrome naked lady from the mud flaps. Oh yeah and a leopard skin shoulder rig for it.

Not entirely sure. Either an M1A Loaded, FN-FAL, Bushmaster AR-15, Valtro, WWI or WWII era 1911, WWII era Inglis HP, Colt SAA, Uberti Winchester 92 clone (probably in .45lc) or one or two other options that I really want but won't really be able to afford for a couple years (yes, I know some aren't current production, but all are reasonably available and all have current production versions out there).

I'd like either a P7M8 with factory night sights, or a DSA G1 FAL.

(They don't make the HK91 anymore, but if they did, it would take the place of the FAL.)

March 17, 2003, 07:18 PM
The only gun I want but just can't afford is a single shot bullpup 50 BMG with a 36" barrel like the one used in the movie "Tremors2."

I think they are made by Barrett aren't they? I believe they are around 2500 bucks.

Ah found a pic:

A nice Browning HighPower, I think. Or maybe an STI Trojan 6.0 longslide in .40 S&W, so I can have it converted to 10mm Auto.

945? Hmmm. Well, it IS less tacky than the S&W1911. Too bad it has such a cheesey-looking trigger.

P7M8 - had a PSP and loved it, had to sell it to finance other things.

But if it were on a table next to an MP5SD, I'd take the MP5 in a heartbeat.

I suppose the idea is to upgrade one's collection, huh?

Well then... handgun? A Clerk Techinicorp .32 revolver, chromed, with the pearlescent plastic grips. If it just has to be a semi-auto, then a Raven .25 ...chromed, with pearlescent plastic grips.

Rifle/shotgun? An High Standard "Topper" with both a .30-30 and a 12 gauge barrel.

Yeah.... for ME, that oughtta be an across-the-board significant upgrade to my battery...:D :D ;)

There we go. Freedom Arms model 97, 357maggie with second cylinder in 38Spl...this one is perfect, with a 4" octagonal barrel and adjustable sights. Accuracy with these is just ungodly. The 38Spl cylinder is so you can have chambers that really match each of the two calibers.

The 22LR version has been recorded as having MOA accuracy. 15/16ths inch group at 100 yards.
