    Latest gun purchase was a CZ-75 Compact. What a great shooter.

    A Vietnam War area Chinese SKS. One of latest ones that was stored in Albania for 2 decades. It's soaked I'm grease and about 60% clean just from wiping it off. All numbers matching and about 20220321_201815.jpg 20220321_201828.jpg 20220321_201854.jpg 80% shape

    Picked up this nice 1860 Uberti Richard-Mason Conversion Open Top Revolver. Can't wait to hit the range with this one.

    I just ordered a Sig p365 and two additional mags. The early 365's had firing pin issues, but the gen 2's are running quite well from my understanding. I'm looking forward to running it through it's paces.

    A few years ago a friend needed money and I came upon this little 3" Kimber .45 ACP.
    Kimber%201.png

    I figured on selling it. Then I shot it and became fond of the little gun. It shoots 230 grain ball and feeds and shoots 230 grain JHP hand loads very well. Anyway years alter it's become one of my favorites. I just bought another 3" .45 ACP Kimber. The Kimber Stainless Ultra Carry II which I hope to give a trial run in the next few days.Really happy with the first one so we shall see how this one does.

    Just traded a S&W S9DVE that I had for someone with an 1895 Chilean Mauser. So if the 1895 acceptance mark is right, this is the oldest rifle in my collection. Looks like it had a decent bore, all the numbers seem to match other than the bolt. 20220404_091445.jpg 20220404_091517.jpg

    Bought a sporterized small ring mauser in 7x57 and a 20" 6.5x55 mauser barrel that got married to my dwm 98 action and placed into an older Bishop walnut stock. 20220404_213039.jpg 20220404_213000.jpg 20220404_210635.jpg 20220404_210619.jpg

    A last ditch Type 99 Arisaka, bolt matches the receiver. If I buy anymore Type 99s it will be a complete one. At least that's the plan.

    I posted this in the black powder forum but since some here probably don't frequent that section I thought I would also post it here. I won this in an auction back in February.

    It's a Springfield Model 1863 type I---produced at the height of the ACW in 1863. These were normally produced with all of the metal in armory bright (unblued) with the exception of a blued rear sight plus the lock and hammer which were color case hardened. Notice this one is blued and besides the normal acceptance cartouches in the wood, it also has a large stamp on the lock side of the stock with the words "Whitney Arms Co" under a spread eagle.

    There was no explanation for its configuration from the auction site , and I had planned to remove the bluing and replace the ramrod to restore it to wartime configuration. However, while it was in transit I visited a dedicated civil war site and found out the real reason of its existence.

    After the war in either 1866 or 67, The Eli Whitney Armory purchased 6900 each of these muskets---either lightly used or unissued from the ordinance department as surplus. They refurbished them by simply rust bluing all the bright metal and updating the ramrod from the standard tulip tip to one with a serrated jag tip. The idea was to wholesale these to various retailers for resale---possibly to settlers headed west but more likely to military schools and/or GAR honor guard units. From the fact that this musket shows no evidence of having ever been loaded or fired, I am assuming that it went to one of the latter two destinations--hence it only went through close-order drill and was never fired. The metal is still like new under the old rust blue and the bore looks like the day it left Whitney--while the wood may have been lightly refinished at some point leaving all the cartouches still fairly fresh.

    Here it is with some reproduction leather. The bayonet and its scabbard are original.

    The amazing unblemished bore of a 159 year old ACW musket probably never fired in anger.

    IMG_2208 (2).JPG I found this Model 28-2 "Highway Patrolman" 357 at a small LGS yesterday. It's got a few small blemishes from use and minor peening of cylinder notches but otherwise in great shape. The previous owner must have put the Diamond Magna grips on since they were discontinued in 1968 and the gun is mid 1970's vintage.

    Smith and Wesson CSX. Even with the false reset and fat magazine conditions it faces when the mags are fully loaded.
    Decided to void the warranty immediately but taking it completely down and polishing everything that rubs.
    That pretty much got rid of the false reset. I can live with the magazine situation.
    The trigger on a hammer fired gun is just that much better than most striker fired.

    Two S&W model 29's. A 4 inch nickel one thats Magna-ported and a 6-1/2 inch blue one. Also a couple of speed loaders, a really nice homemade holster, 2 sets of Pachmayr grips along with the factory grips and 620 rounds of ammo.

    I gotta learn how to post pictures!

    Might finally have replaced my Glock 19 as my “go to” EDC

    I sort of “accidentally” won a Sig 1911 Emperor Scorpion Fastback on GB. (I put in what I thought was a low ball price with 3 days left to go). It was on my Wish List so I’m not complaining!
