    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.)

    OEF_VET,

    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.

    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.

    Ooops..

    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.

    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...

    Just a few mags, should have ordered more while they were in stock for so little cash.

    A ZKK-600 BRNO,

    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.

    No you're not crazy

    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.

    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:

    How about a pic?:D

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

    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....

    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. :)
