    Ok boys and girls. The good luck fairy hit me with some unexpected cash. So time to go toy shopping. I already have quite a sizeable collection. I am into military style guns, so I have AR's, Ak's, Garand, FAL, M1A, etc..

    I'm looking for something interesting to get. Budget is $3,500..

    What have you got for ideas?

    Already have one of those.

    I have a Remington 700 Police all set-up for long range work. HS precision Stock, Leupold Mark 4 scope

    Reloading has never interested me. Not something I would keep up on.

    Where are any full-auto grease guns for the price? I am considering a Mac 10. I can find them for $3,500-3,800.

    Keep the ideas coming. Not sure if I want one big thing or several smaller priced items.

    If you want a fun gun, get a Mares Leg.

    For $3500, you might be able to buy an actual SR-25...

    I isn't exactly in line with the military theme, but I'd get a super nice 1911 and still have some left over.

    A MAC-10 and matching suppressor would be a worthy buy. Cheapest way into FA and insanely fun.

    If wanting something more of a military rifle, how about an HK 91 or 93?

    I'm thinking about one of these.

    http://www.msarinc.com/stg556_sporting.html

    One of those and another 1911.. Could be interesting.


    A .308 AR sounds interesting also. The Sr-25 is out of my price range though.

    At last count 12 of them....

    Already have a HK93. Also have a G3 clone also.

    Since I'm also into 1911's the possibility of a Wilson Combat or an Ed Brown is also there.

    Decisions, Decisions...

    Did someone say "lots of money" and "1911"? Look no further, my friend...

    I've got a Colt Gold Cup Series 70 that I'll part with. PM me if you decide to go that route.

    or go this route, and have a little left over for optics:

    AR-10 super-SASS

    It competed with the Stoner rifle in the military SASS trials. I forget why it wasn't chosen

    not a bad rifle, Mach, but it uses modified M14 mags, not the DPMS-style mags for which Magpul makes Pmags.

    Actually, all the AR-10 rifles use the second gen mags now, which are proprietary. Can still use M14 mags, but they may not engage the BHO. I use both in my 10-A2 carbine, but prefer the gen II 25 rounders.
