Also, my Mannlicher stocked .30 Carbine.  And, no, I didn't butcher up an original.  Someone else did and I ended up with it.  It does get lots of comments though.
HAHAHA! That .30 Carbine looks like one of the rifles from Chuck Heston's "Planet of thhe Apes"

    Do you mean like this?

    The magazine looks like it holds a longer, more potent round though.

    You can change the barrel & mag tube as long as it isn't permanent and can readily be switched back.  It can be given away once it's taken off the NFA registry with of course the civilian legal requirements installed.

    That is sweet, Sarge!
    Hope someday the Mossberg 500A I own can look as intimidating.
    Speaking of barrels. Can't you just swap out the barrel and add a tube extension and spring?
    Or does it have to stay stock for the beany counters?

    Thanks man. Something to be said for steel and wood. The stock on the AK was that pale plywood and my boss suggested we stain it. He said red fits an AK so we tried to get the stock a reddish brown. I like the way it turned out actually.

    Vera:


    Haven't been to the range, yet, with the ACR: plan is for Saturday morning, to run some mags through and confirm that it works. I've been busy settling back into normal life following heart surgery, or I'd have been out to shoot it the day I picked it up, a month ago.

    SAR-48HB

    MichiganFolks keep talking about another Civil War.  One side knows how to shoot and has a trillion bullets.  The other side has crying closets and is confused about which bathroom to use.  How do you think that war is going to end?

    I find myself at a loss here. Again. The only star wars toy I have is a tiny cast r2d2 I found stuffed in a corner at the last house we live in, and its in my tool box at work. I don't have a sterling either (didn't realize they were packing Brit sub-guns around in star wars......)
    And Penguin- why dont you go ahead and put the FAL and the PKM in one pic together so I can be really jealous............. :bash (toss em in the back of a new F-150 Raptor and have your super model wife pose with them while you are at it............) :facepalm

    That is cool, I like your sterling. I would like to get a second one and paint it. See how that goes. I have never painted any of my guns but after watching Tire Iron's video I am thinking about it again.

    Mine was part of a run done up by Crusader Weaponry, actually, so it's also got a permanent Slipstream treatment. I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it, but that's my fault (or some combination of my fault and the less than superb sights), and it's a real gas to shoot.  :thumbup1

    Yeah they used sterlings as the base for the storm tropper blasters in star wars. Fold the stock, throw on some wind shild wiper blades on the front, rig a scope on their (German of some sort If I remember) cut the magazine down to size and, add some counter thing on their and tada! Storm Trooper E-11 blaster. They used a lot of military surplus stuff as props and such. They rigged up an MG-34 as one of the other storm tropper guns. Han Solo's blaster is bascily the old C-96 mauser broom handle pistol with a scope. The old East German military boots were used all over the place. Some where around here I have a pair of those. Those are the ones that come to mind off the top of my head. I am sure there are plenty of others, at least on the orginal movies.

    Yes I have watched star wars way to many times.
