    The nickled Remington looks great---always liked the look of the Remington over the Colt.

    I think it is neat how Remington obviously wanted to make the pistol like the Colt SAA.. But they kept that large "loading arm" under the barrel just for Remington Branding purposes.

    The grip thickness of your 84 should be the same as for the 81,,,
    Both are just a hair over 1/4" thicker than my single-stack model 85.

    I believe the official explanation is that the exagerated "web" is supposed to guide the gun into its holster.

    I just think they look awesome.:D

    Really... you lie :) Realy, I had not heard that and will have to do some digging.. I mean how drunk would have to be to need more guiding into the holster once you get the barrel going down the holster???

    But you may be right.. Believe it or not supposedly that is why there are two little wings in front of the cylinder on the Webleys, to guide the gun into the holster..

    I think I made the same "How drunk" comments when I heard that, except I think I use "How Intoxicated".. Its British you know. :)

    The "high hump" upper handguard on early M1903 Springfields was supposed to guide the rifle into a horse scabbard-

    VZ-58 by Czechpoint/CSA. Picked it up today. What a unique machine!

    Such a stupid feeling to field strip it for cleaning after test-firing, and trying for 1 & 1/2 hours tonight to reassemble the striker Upside Down....despite having prev. watched YouTube. Du Dummkopf! Hast Du gar Nichts gelernt?
    But what a fun gun to shoot; a good bit less muzzle rise than with my imported AKs, and this VZ only has a muzzle Thread protector, which can easily be removed. And the front post sight is very straight, hits really small objects easily from 50 yards.

    Such a precision machine. Tricky to get the thin rear assembly's (it has the two odd springs) two small tabs into the track as this upper Inverted V metal goes a bit just over the bolt carrier.

    NIGHTLORD40K: I've not learned how to upload photos.; and watched my wife struggle with it, despite having plenty of E-bay seasoning. The VZ-58 is brand-new, black plastic furniture, exactly like any similar VZ-58 on Gunbroker where mine was ordered via "Buy Now".
    When the gun cash comes from selling guns which were simply protected inside a handgun case etc, or very seldom used, then it is Not so expensive.

    *Note:The muzzle threads protectors Unscrew, very easily.
    Many people believe that Czechpoint's ......German barrel lengths (on 58s)….. are below the "non-SBR (permit for a short-barreled rifle)" limit---but these are not. Even With No muzzle brake, muzzle rise is a good bit less than with those very Different rifles, known as AKs.

    Grabbed a 1897 Winchester and a Wards Western Field 15A 410 today. The Wards was produced by Mossberg from 1936 to 1938. IMG_3089[1].JPG

    It is a three round fixed magazine, feeds from the top like a Mauser. The 97 is a 12ga.
