Hi everybody, been hanging around here for awhile but havn't been posting much. I was wondering if you could have any firearm on your wish list regardless of price what would it be. Right now mine would be the 90 percent original 1939 M70 Winchester in .22 Hornet that has been at the local shop for the last 6 months while I've been laid off.

Always wanted one of those.

Iwould want somethign full-auto (just because I don't have one) and man-portable. Lighter than a BAR. Bigger than a subgun. Maybe a full-auto FAL or G3...

If I'm thinking of something I don't have, I'd say a USGI BAR. That's one of very few Class 3 weapons I'd be interested in.

Full auto, definitely.

The BAR would probably be one of my first choices too.

Maybe a Thompson.

HK UMP45.

For ultimate practicality, I'd probably have to say an M16 lower. There are any number of calibers and configurations availible just by changing the upper. You could have anything from a full-auto .22LR, a 9mm subgun, the regular .223, to a belt fed upper that looks like a MG42. Also, a "machine gun" is in legal terms a "machine gun", and not a rifle or a pistol, as silly as it sounds. The barrel and overall length restrictions on rifles and stock restrictions on pistols as defined in the rest of the NFA don't apply. You could have a AR15/M16 upper with any short barrel length you wanted, or have it as a full-auto AR pistol, it dosen't have to be re-registered as a SBR or AOW. The only paperwork you have to do is file ammendments with the Treasury for extra calibers it may be converted to.

I happen to have a 1939 Model 70 -- mine's in .30-06, and far from being 90%, shows the honorable scars of almost 70 years of hard hunting -- including at least one African safari.

I hope that Hornet stays there until you're ready to pick it up.

September 27, 2005, 10:21 PM
I'll take an orgiginal FG-42, with enough spare parts and non corrosive ammo to shoot it without fear.

If those were all taken, I'd go for a Bren, same deal.

Not exactly a rarity, is it?
Mine is a nice rifle, but I wouldn't consider it special.

My choice would be 10mm...not interested in a Bren...a few more Deltas maybe...but mostly a 10mm rifle of some kind.

Walker Colt owned and used by Capt. Walker. The old saying is "with one of these, I can get all of those" simply by selling it. Not being a collector, I would not want to have possession long, because I don't want showpieces that can't be used. But think of the guns you could buy with the millions that gun would bring.

Do we have to stick to legal choices, or is this a purely hypothetical, "anything goes" scenario?

If anything goes, well, I'm a big fan of Aliens, so I'd like to build my own "pulse rifle" (Thompson submachinegun + sawn-off pump-action shotgun + "spacey" housing).

On the other hand, if my choice has to be compatible with my local (UK) laws, I've always liked old-fasioned leaver-action rifles, so I'd go for one of them. Maybe a Winchester, with a proper wooden stock, etc. Or maybe an Enfield Mk4 (I know that's a bolt action, but I like them too).

Or possibly a Calico in .22, just because it is so ridiculous (100-round magazine), and yet still legal in the UK (semi-autos are banned, except .22 rimfire rifles, and shotguns).


Alternatively, if for the sake of argument I can pretend I'm living in the US, I think just a normal Evil Black Rifle. Or maybe an Uzi.

There are several that I would like to have but that will never be on "the list" because of various legal and financial reasons. In other words, I can't afford them because of a bunch of BS laws, eventhough some could be had legally.

I would like to have an M-240B and a select fire FAL. A mini-UZI with a suppressor and an HK MP5K would be cool too. Add in a 7.62x51 MG-42 (MG-3 I think is the designation) and I should be OK for awhile with those.

Also would love a carbine and/or some long guns...

I'm just wondering, are you sure .38special's big enough considering you're talking about using a scaled 1885 Hi-Wall as a 100-150yd walking gun? Personally, I'd be thinking of .32Win.Spl. for the distance, but it's your gun and either way, I think, is do-able and would be nice.

If we're talking realistic guns, I honestly really want to own a Semmerling LM4 at some point, half for a collector's item (features prominently in one of my favorite book series) and half just to fire one off and practice with it. Either that or just about everything in Frank Castle's apartment. :D

For fantasy, I certainly wouldn't mind a pulse rifle, though the underslung portion was actually a pump-action grenade launcher, not a shotgun. That's the version I'd want. I'd also love one of the big-ass, strapped to your hip, auto targeting guns that Drake and Vasquez had. And I'd make sure not to fire either of them right under the primary heat exchangers.

Though I'd settle for a phased plasma rifle in a 40 watt range. Just have to see who gets that ref.

I'd also love one of the big-ass, strapped to your hip, auto targeting guns that Drake and Vasquez had. And I'd make sure not to fire either of them right under the primary heat exchangers.

The actual Pulse Rifle props were made from Thompsons and 870s with a bunch of SPAS-12 junk on the latter, but here's a fun thought:

The Technical Manual for the movie specifically says that one shouldn't ever depress or squeeze the nosecap of any of the explosive grenades, because it might cause them to detonate. The M41A's grenade launcher has a TUBULAR MAGAZINE. Oops.

Of course, there're beehive shells and "canister" (buckshot) shells, but I don't think I'd have much love for a weapon whose very magazine put me in mortal danger every time I load it.

On the subject of the M56 Smartguns. Heck yeah.

Of course, you could fire them near the heat exchangers, just don't hit one, or you're gonna vaporize an area the size of Nebraska. :D

Aside: What the hell good would a forty watt plasma gun be? What can you turn into plasma with forty watts? I can hardly light up my dorm cell (er, room) with 40 watts through a light bulb, and my computer alone draws about 400 through its power supply.

And what's with watts, anyhow? Energy is measured in *joules*. I'll take a megajoule-class plasma rifle with optional targeting module projectiles. (Too much Doom3!)

Failing that, an RPG7.

Interesting facts about the pulse rifles. Maybe Hicks was better off with that good old pump-action shotgun "for close encounters." Less chance of it exploding on him.

Though if I could really have anything I wanted for those darned xenomorph infestations that are ruining this country, it would be "Alice" from the AVP 2 video game. :D Power armor with lots of guns and a flamethrower. Oh yes...

Definitely a 5.56mm minigun. A 1,000 round case would only last 15 seconds with the RoF set to 4,000 RPM, though...

More realistically, it would be nice to get a registered M-16 lower with whatever registration junk is necessary for multiple calibers. Pair it with a .22 LR and/or 9mm upper for cheap full-auto, a .223 upper and 3-round burst sear for serious social work, and a .50 Beowulf in case of radioactive mutant zombie vampire ninja bears on meth.

Only the receiver and sear need to be registered, right?

September 29, 2005, 05:01 PM
1)m-16 or full auto ar-15. take off the stock and shorten the barrel, there's an AR pistol. replace stock, put in a .50Beo barrel... then put in a .22lr mag, barrel, and bolt... etc.
2)Glock 18
3)SG58FAL with da fun switch
4)chain-fed .308 medium automatic rifle
5)MAC-10 or Micro UZI.

I'd personally like to see S&W make the following. A modern update to the classic french LeMat percussion piece. It would have to have a 10-round cylinder chambered in .45 Long Colt, and the second barrel chambered in either .500 S&W Magnum, or .454 Casull. This would combine the reliability of a wheelgun with a better round count than single-stack 1911s, plus, you'd have the Magnum round for hard takedowns. If S&W made something like this, the X-frame would be a great base to build upon. I'd open-carry that monster in a western-style rig with belt-pouches containing 10-round moon clips for quick reloads. Sorry for resurrecting an old topic.

I'd like an MG-42.

I am humbled a bit by the fact that I currently own some of the guns that people have on their "wish list" here, and I don't own that many guns. I am counting myself luckier in gun ownership now.

Voted FN2000, add some:
1) PGM Mini-Hecate .338 Lapua
2) FAMAS G2
3) Browning HP Mk3

That should cover everything.

Actually, this is an interesting idea. But you're talking up a cannon there.:D I'm trying to visualize how big a 10rd .45Colt cylinder would be.:eek: You can get a wheelgun so big Dirty Harry wouldn't carry it.:uhoh:

Here's my thoughts, and this is purely my own opinion...

The classic 1863 LeMat was a .36caliber, so I'd go 9rds of .38spl or .357mag. The .357mag is a faster round and from one explanation, has more umph than a .45Colt (much as I like the .45 too). The original LeMat was also single-action and I'm wondering if there's a way to incorporate a loading gate in the side of the frame. I don't know how easy or hard it would be to make it a swing-out cylinder. The original second barrel was a 20guage muzzleloading shotgun and this has me wondering if there's a way to make it breach loading much like the idea of having this barrel chambered in .500mag or .454Casull. I wonder if this second barrel would fire a 20guage slug accurately, but with buckshot it wouldn't really matter. Now, since we're talking about a modern updated deal, I wonder if that shotgun barrel would be legal being so short.

I don't know, but it sounds cool either way.

I want a lightweight drilling with removable chokes on the 12 ga barrels over 30'06 lower bbl. I want a flip up sight and a quick mount to scope the '06.

Hey, I like to hunt birds and bears on the same trip. So what if it costs $20K for one gun to do both.

Realistically, a CZ 452 with a nice scope. Unrealistically, a handgun with a concealed carry license.

Original Thompson, Steyr AUG, or M-14. Hard to choose. All serve different purposes and all do them well.

ANY firearm, regardless of cost?

OK, I'll only name REAL guns that actually may exist. Here are a couple of ideas . . . (I'll assume the gun comes with a nice supply of ammo . . . see #3, below ;) )

#1 Teddy Roosevelt's H&H Double. Given to Teddy before his famous African hunting trip by various members of Britain's ruling class, the pedigree makes it one of the most valuable firearms around. Wouldn't surprise me if it went well into seven figures if it were to come up for sale today.

#2 Serial #1 Colt Patterson . . . or Peacemaker . . . or Walker . . . etc.

#3 The 280mm cannon, firing an atomic shell with a yield of 15kt (Each round of ammo is probably far more valuable than the cannon itself.)
