Any One Like Guns?
« on: May 02, 2009, 08:24:50 PM »
I like to collect and shoot surplus rifles but these days with ammo and reloading supplies getting so hard to find i am reluctant to shoot the ammo i have saved. I thought would put my 1022 together as 22 ammo is still easy to find. I have had the parts in my safe a year now. I guess it is about time.

Nice looking rig. I have a Ruger 10/22 as well, it's somewhat simpler than yours though. It has a black, Hogue rubber overmolded stock and an 18" Green Mountain fluted bull barrel. I dropped in a recoil buffer too, but haven't done anything to the trigger. I shoot Remington sub-sonics as they don't have the "crack" that higher velocity rounds do. They have decent enough accuracy for rats and feed properly through my 10 round Ruger magazines. No pictures though.

You've really got that tricked out. What components have you used? Personally I like the 10/22,it seems to be one of those guns where's there's no middle ground about how people like them...you either love them or hate them.

Sounds like you have a nice rig. Mine is bore sighted i still have to take it to the range to sight it in. I put a 2lb hammer in it. I also modded the bolt release plate to a auto bolt release and made my own extended mag release. Did you mod the bolt to get the sub-sonics to cycle. Have you seen these 2 and four way adapters in the center of the four way their is room for an extra box of ammo or a weed eater line cleaning kit. Right now i have 1873 Peacemaker clone torn apart on the bench cleaning it up and smoothing up the action.

I agree, The stock is a Butler Creek Folder, the red dot is a knock off Clonepoint 35.00, I also have a compact 4x scope for it, quad rail is a UTG, i can't remember what 2lb hammer and buffer i used, I added the flash hider to make sure i am long enough in CA you have be 26 inches OAL with the stock folded. I ordered a front grip and a bi-pod adapter. Should make a good little bunny buster. My daughter lives close to Reno and they have Cotton Tails everywhere.

I built the 1022 up because before ammo was hard to get i used to shoot AKs and ARs a lot i know it's not the same for me it is more commutable to shoot.

I used to do that too when I was a teen. I had some Mosin 91/30s, an exsniper 91/30, a 91/51, British SMLE, Styer 1901, Mas 36, 2 Carcanos, and some others. What did you have?

I have a few. I used to have a lot but since my eyesight went to craps I don't shoot anymore. Here's some pics.

This is a Taurus model 82. I got it as a high school graduation gift from my Grandma. And yea, I guess you could say I come from a redneck family.





This is my wife's Beretta 418. It's a little 25ACP. Granted it's not the hammer of Thor but I'm assuming it would hard to function after being shot in the face 9 times, and yes, my wife can shoot that good.





This is my NAA 22 Mag mini-revolver. I can't hit the broadside of a barn with this but it's fun.

Here's a couple more.

This is my baby here. It's a Bulgarian Makarov. Before my eyes went to crap I was a decent shot with this. It's not super powerful but it's as reliable as the sun. It literally is the AK-47 of handguns. Inexpensive, unrefined but designed to work even when carried by an untrained peasant who hasn't a clue how to treat his guns.





And this is the 1st gun I ever had. My uncle gave it to me when I was 5 or 6. It's a Daisy BB gun. The ducktape isn't there for decoration, it's holding it together. But it still works. Although it's difficult to shoot accurately since the barrel is curved to the left. That's Bo the cat with it. He passed away near Xmas of 2007.

I have quite a few handguns. My first real gun was a Beretta .25..it may have been a Jetfire I'm not to sure.. But now, I am primarily interested in .45's. My favorite gun is a Smith and Wesson 1911 PD. I have a BUNCH of Colt .45 variants and I absolutely love them. But, for now, the SW 1911 PD reigns supreme.  :)

I won't even begin to tell you how cheap you could get some really prime surplus military bolt actions in shops here,or some of the really great actions that you'd see offered in things Shotgun News.Of all the non US military bolts I've owned the Swedish 6.5 X 55 was far and away my favorite.Beautiful craftsmanship approaching artwork,and a caliber that was just superb.To give you an idea of how good a caliber it is.Karamojo Bell used a fairly similar 6.5 X 54 Mannlicher Schoenaur to down elephants..of course knowing something about placement helps,but you've got to have a cartridge you can have faith in. Bell also used another favorite of mine...the .303 SMLE.John Masters used a service issue .303 SMLE to take out a pair of tigers that were terrorizing a village near where he was posted when he was serving in pre-war India with the 4th Gurkhas.

I did some pics of my semi-auto long guns they did not turn out so good





So here are some pics of my handguns.



It is a Springfield Armory 1911 A-1



This is a CZ52 it shoots 7.62x25 Tokarev i also have a 9mm Luger drop barrel for it.



This is a Russian 1895 Nagant it is a seven shot revolver. That shoots a lot of different types of ammo 7.62x38r  expensive, 32S&W longs, 32 H&R Mags, hybrid hand loads using 32-20 cases, and i have a 32 acp conversion cylinder that's in the gun.



This is a Ruger GP100 4 inch 357 Magnum.

These are my black powder pistols i think these are more fun than the center fire guns to shoot and surprisingly accurate. I cast my own bullets and balls for these guns.



This is my 1847 Colt Walker replica revolver. This the frist magnum handgun made. It can shoot maximum load of 60gr black powder. It is a big gun it is 16 inches long and weighs 9lb. I also have a 45 Colt conversion cylinder for it.



This is a 44cal 1851 brass frame Colt.



This is a 44cal 1858 Remingtion.

Nope, didn't do anything to get the sub-sonics to cycle they just seemed to work fine. I have even used CCI Stingers with no problems. I kind of like the stock magazines as they don't get in the way like some of the high-cap mags do. I use weed eater line for cleaning too, works great with a Hoppe's #9 soaked patch.

Hey Mike 56, how come only one of you ak's has a monsterman grip(that's what they call it right?) on it? Good looking ones you got there. Too bad ammo went through the roof on those things :'(. I still have a few shotgun new's form around 10 years ago when a case of 7.62x39 cost about $80. I wich the days of cheap ammo would come back. That and sks's for under a $100.

The AK with out the Monsterman grip has a bullet button i made you need a bullet or a tool to remove the mag. They consider that to be a fixed mag. The mag is a thirty rounder that has been permitly modified to hold ten rounds. I am afread the days of cheap ammo and guns are gone for ever. I still surplus 54R and 8mm Mauser left from the good old days. If you are looking for a good bolt action rifle gunsnammo has three Finnish M-39s left with pre 1899 receivers you can buy these rifles with just proof of age no paper work shipped to your front door. The Finns built these rifles on captured Russian receivers they are very accurate. Here is the link http://www.gunsnammo.com/.

While he finns are nice I think I'd still just get a russian considering one local store had them for about $110 last month which isn't bad. The only thing that holds me back is the fact that 7.62x54 isn't as cheap as it once was and it's just another caliber I have to buy. Besides I have my 03A3 for a bolt rifle.  :D

I like those black powder revolvers, Mike - especially the Remington :). Apart from airpistols, black powder are about the only type of handguns we are allowed in the UK.

I did look into getting a black powder gun shortly after the pistol ban (when I still had money) and they do look fun to shoot, if a bit slow to load :)
