Gunny your killing us with all this great stuff.
I couldn’t help it. A Turkish Bayonet converted to fit the M1 Garand is hard to come by. I have one in my collection that I bought several years ago at the Birmingham Collector’s show for $30, It was missed labeled And the dealer didn’t really know what it was. I’ve seen the sell for as high as $80.
Last week I got word of a guy selling them on Gunboards pretty cheap. I contacted him and and told him I would take whatever he had left. I got all five shipped for $108. Know I have to find sheaths for them.
The Glock 48, I plan to start using as my EDC when I retire in August. Thought I would dress it up a bit.
This stuff came today.

50 Barnes LRX BULLETS 127 grain .264 diameter kind
100 of the new Hornady 165 grain flex tip .355 diameter bullets for the .350Legend
50 Sierra 77 hpbt .224 diameter bullets for the new savage
LGS #1 bought a daa primer collator
LGS#2 scored a citadel m1911 commander in .45acp for $500. Great gun day!
I revived a J frame and ordered grips and holsters for it.
Bought a bench plate
Got a new white outline notch rear sight, and a HiViz green FO front sight for my S&W R8.
It originally came with a plain V-Notch rear and a white dot front. Never liked or got used to them.
Pfft, I'd like to be able to go 3 days without buying anything firearms related. Just this week, I bought a Romeo4M just because my 4T was sent back to Sig for replacement. Now the 4T is back. I ordered an 11.3" Ballistic Advantage barrel because it has 40% more dwell time and it was on sale. I ordered another 1K rounds of .223 and a case of .22. Man, this corona thing has got to come to an end.
Stopped by the local gun shop and picked up the Schofield clone I put on layaway last week.
Then I checked out a few other gun shops.
Only other thing I bought was a box of Hornady .357Mag 125 gr XTP bullets.
Did notice a couple of nice guns in a couple of the shops. In particular, a used pre lock 686 with a 4" full underlug barrel for $550.
Another shop had a Uberti Cattleman nickle finish .45Colt with a 7-1/2" barrel for less than $600(don't remember the exact price).
Tempting...but I think I will pass for now. Can't buy them all unfortunately...
Most recent purchase was a GP100 last month that I added a fiber optic front sight and Hogue Match Champion style grips to. Shooting PPU lead round nose 38 special through it caused it to jam and stop firing altogether. Cleaning the cylinder pin freed it up and switching to Fiocchi 158gr JHP 357mag it works just fine now.
Also bought a Gould and Goodrich B803 Holster from Midway USA.
Liked how closely the holster holds the gun to the body I bought 2 more. 1 for my MK3 FN Hi Power:
And 1 for my Glock 19.
Lastly bought 3 of these surplus bandoleers. Reading the reviews they will hold either 6 metal / alloy mags, 3 Magpul 30rd mags, or a combo of a 20rd and 30rd Magpul mag in each slot. I'm using them to carry 3 Magpul mags for my truck gun AR15 pistols.
2 things they say will always go bang: Rugers and Revolvers.
Tried to go-to LGS Tuesday on way to a match but there was a line of about 20 people waiting to get in .
Last night I picked up an old Hornady Pacific Reloading outfit.
400 rounds of Red Army Standard 7.62 x 39 from PSA.
View attachment 921301
Semi-custom Remington 700 in .280 Remington. Think I'll have my smith set it back and re-chamber in .280 AI.
Couple of leather cartridge slides for .38 and .45 Colt arrived today from Midway. They were tight as all git-out so I put a small amount of conditioner in places with a Q-tip and now leaving them alone for a while to get accustomed to their new surroundings. Not in the pic is the Lee .430 bullet sizer kit that came with them.
Bought some pla 3d filament to print some reloading press parts
AA#9, 40 cal dies, and I hope what are 40 cal bullets in the whit boxes?
I see 10mm goodness in your future.
Yesterday I paid my fee, got fingerprinted (Fingerprinted by a beautiful clerk/deputy; never before have I had a better reason to get myself arrested.), and filled out my application for my state's enhanced carry permit. When it shows up I'll be good to conceal carry in 40 states.
Some 7.62x39 brass, now I need to get dies and Dillon parts.
Some Berry's .30-30 bullets to try in 300 Blackout.
A red ETS 40 9mm Glock mag.
AR stuff from JustRails, PSA, Primary Arms, AR15Discounts.
Savior carbine bag.
I think that covers the week so far.
A new Outer's silicone bronze bore brush for the 1911 I'm adding to my CCW
Lyman .314-299 mold came via FedEx.
Plan to feed them to my .303Brit and 7.62x54 MosinNagant. @.314”
Bullet feeder tubes
Just picked up a few boxes of 115 grain 9mm range ammo for 10 a box. There was only 500 rounds left so I left half for the next guy.
Just got my new Apex trigger in for my Glock 48.
A bunch of AR parts today. Basic stuff really.
1000 pieces of Berry's 150 gr .30-30 bullets. My Blackout pistol loves those things.
Took my CWP class and picked up a 50rd pack of some CCI Stingers
