    first AR

    Just brought home my first AR, victim of election fear I suppose. Debated for about an hour on the Ruger 556 and then decided on the Smith & Wesson M&P15 sport II. Entry level, carbine length, DGI, AR and just what I was looking for.

    A Smith & Wesson 442-1 followed me home yesterday, at least that what I told my wife.

    Recently bought a FNH PS90 with black USSS ring sight (AKA: Secret Service sight) and shortly thereafter a 18in. KelTec RFB. I haven't had much time to shoot either...much less a camera, but I'll see if I can snap a couple of photos upon request. :)

    SAR-1: my first Romanian gun, an AK derivative.

    I'm hoping to sell my only 'AR'/M4 clone in order to buy a different 'AK' derivative, the Hungarian AMD-63 (FTF only, west TN-no exceptions: buying or selling).

    I was on Atlantic's website last Monday and saw they had a HK MP5SD clone in stock ... I was on their list for 6+ months to be notified but never got an email ... anyway I jumped and put it on plastic.

    [​IMG]

    Don't be deceived, the suppressor isn't actually attached ... I set it up and took the picture to give myself hope!

    It came in Thursday, I took my registered sear/trigger pack and favorite suppressor (just like the website says) and went to pick it up ... the website says the barrel has an 18x1 thread pitch ... which was perfect as I already had an 18x1 adapter for my Octane which I use on my Scorpion EVO ... I loaded up 6 mags with various ammo's and went to my dealer to pick it up.

    Obviously I should have done a bit more research.

    My registered sear trigger pack and stock fit, but the can wouldn't screw on; at first I thought there was something wrong with the barrel because my "Favorite Suppressor" WONT FIT ... then I got home and it turns out these are made like the original MP5SD-N ... the threads are at the base of the barrel ... then the 5+" of barrel is in front of that ... meaning that your suppressor has to slip over and down the 5 inches of barrel before it can tighten down ... which also mean's my "Favorite Suppressor" WILL NOT FIT!!!

    Except the top rivet for the sling clip is kinda mashed, it is really nice! The welds are nice and tidy ... the rear sight welds are just nice and it seems to be on straight so, I'm pretty happy ... but I'm not totally sure because ... you know ... I spent almost $1800 on a gun I can't shoot because my "Favorite Suppressor" WONT FIT ... Lastly I'd have opted for a dull satin finish, over the shiny finish ... but it is a nice finish.

    I just can't get over the fact that the website doesn't say to use your favorite MP5SD-N suppressor ... maybe I'm just stupid but when all the info says USE YOUR FAVORITE SUPPRESSOR with a 18x1 thread, I just assumed mine would fit ... well I guess that makes me an ASS!

    So ... rant off.

    Thirty-two ago, I was about to get out of the Army. I hadn't grown up around guns, but since enlisting, I had shot a lot of firearms that belonged to Uncle and various buddies in my unit. I figured I should get some sort of neat-o bangstick to take back with me into civilian life, while I was still getting SP4 pay. I saw an ad for the Weaver Arms Nighthawk 9mm carbine in Firepower magazine, and decided that's what I wanted. (Yeah, you're rolling your eyes, but give me a break, okay? I was 21 and it was 1985.)

    SAI-57-004.jpg

    I went to the local gun shop and put down a $50 deposit on one. However, about a month later I was getting close to my discharge date and it hadn't come in. I was told that my deposit was non-refundable, since they'd already ordered this weird-alice gun they really didn't want to stock, but they offered to transfer it to a LGS near me once it came in. I was moving back home to go to to college, and I knew that bringing an EBR (or technically, in this case, "evil black carbine") into my non-shooting parents' house was going to be a very, very tough sell. I shrugged and gave the gun dealer the name of my barracks roommate, then told him if he wanted the gun when it came in, he could have my deposit. As far as I know, he never got a call and they just kept my $50. The next year, the 1986 assault weapons ban happened and the Nighthawk faded into history after about 1500 were produced.

    Fast forward three decades, and I find myself randomly searching GunBroker for "Weaver Arms Nighthawk," every once in a while, just for old times' sake. Asking prices seem to be all over the board, and they're actually going for anywhere from $400 to $950, with $600-650 being the mean. Then, about a week ago, with a nice tax refund in the bank, I saw one for $530 with no reserve. Excellent condition, three mags. I kept watching and nobody was bidding.

    The end result is that I picked up my Nighthawk from my local FFL last night and saw one in the flesh for the first time. Assuming these were serial numbered sequentially, it must have been one of the last ones made and, as far as I can tell, it must be darn near unfired. Other than a bit of shine in the very middle of the firing pin, I can't see any wear. I haven't had it to the range yet, but frankly it doesn't matter how accurate it turns out to be, how the trigger feels, or how reliably it runs. I bought it to close the loop on an open action item, three decades late. My inner 21-year-old is very happy.

    Hungarian 'AK' derivative: AMD-65, by TGI.
    TGIs have the "SA 2000 M" stamp under the receiver; they are the only Hungarian AKs in the US which have the Hungarian barrel, not just the Hungarian receiver.

    Traded my only 'AR' plus cash for it. Thanks again Armslist TN!

    I picked up a pair of Mossburg Brownies ... the only pistol Mossburg ever made.​
    patent date July 27, 1920 ... these are the 3rd generation made some time around 1927-1932 is as close as I've been able to determine any closer ... and unfortunately they have been re-blued or Plum brown'd - I'm told they look that way because there is too much chrome in the metal ... but I still like 'em​
