    I'd be perfectly happy with the M44 as is. I only hope I can find them at decent prices when I decide to buy. It's all going up up up.
    You could save a bit on the price by just getting a barreled action instead of the whole gun, but I hear ya. They definitely need to come down on the price of that stock for sure. If it was 100-125 dollars, it would sell like hotcakes.

    Classicarms has a ****load of M44's right now, but they're already flying off the shelves. AIM got some in yesterday; they sold out by the end of the day....and they also had quite a few.

    Don't worry though, there are a ton more coming. Molot has really increased their exports and are targeting US importers on the regular right now. It's sad that the prices of these guns are going up, but in essence, they're still probably the best bang-for-the-buck out there.

    You need one....

  2. There are a few things on my immediate list, plenty more for the future if I can get them.

    I don't have a 22lr, so that's a must. Plan to go with the tried and true 10/22.

    I'd like to get another hi-cap handgun, specifically a Glock Gen 4 19 or 17. I love my FNP-40, and would love to get an FNX-9, but since they're not heavily used guns, finding parts is a huge nuisance, especially for my FNP. I have to call FNH tomorrow to try and order a recoil assembly, and I don't even know if they have them.

    The last being a bolt-action. The M44 sounds great, as does a Rem 700 mil-spec. I just have to decide how much I'm willing to shell out. - I could split the difference by getting the M44 and an old Marlin 336 lever, which would be cool too.

    Glock 17....a must!

    The Ruger 10/22 is just a step above the rest. I don't have one myself, but I shoot my buddies all the time. My .22LR armament consists of a bolt action Savage Mk2 (unbelievably accurate gun) and a Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22. I have grown to truly love the .22LR cartridge. It's just plain fun to shoot.

    I want a 19 though as well. I carry a 26, but the 19 still intrigues me. If anything, it's the gun I want my wife to learn to shoot well and have at home.

    The issue right now on Glock's is obviously mag availability. They're harder to come by than anything else. I see USGI AR mags sub $17 every day, bought 8 of them myself even though I don't own an AR and plan to buy more...Glock mags, nope. I hardly ever see them. I think Cope's Distributing had some the other day but they're out now, and they weren't cheap either.

    I really want the 17. I hope things calm down long enough for me to get my hands on one and at least 5 mags.

    Does your wife shoot, T? I finally got my wife somewhat interested. She took her CHP class here in NC in January. She really likes shooting my Kahr CW9.

    I finally convinced her to learn how to shoot. It only took 5+ years, lol.

    I think now that we have a daughter, it has really hit home about protecting those that you love; because in reality nobody else can. I'm going to have her take the CCW class down here to learn some of the laws/basics. I don't mind if she doesn't want to carry (I always do anyway), but I want her to be able to defend herself and my daughter at home if I'm not there.

    I've been picking up glock mags here and there. They definitely aren't easy to find, but the pop up every now and then. Make sure you check out Botachtactical.com.....and Targetbarn.com (which is a lesser known place and wasn't hit as hard by the hoarders). I just picked up a Glock 21 (27 round mag) on gunbroker.com through botachtactical. It's the glock factory mags that they made extensions for to fit the KRISS Vector (god damn I want one, haha!) They still have a few.

    I LOVE my 1911's, but I would never want to decide between that and my Glock's. They are just too freakin' accurate and reliable to ever resist, haha!

  6. Still loving my XDM 45! At first, with the price of ammo, I was like , but now that I can find 45 easier than 9, I'm all like WOOHOO!!!

    For a 22, I have a Heritage Rough Rider that I bought a while ago, but haven't even gotten to shoot it yet. .22 ammo is really hard to come by these days, too. Bummer!!


    Irish... did you get my email reply with the pics? Sent a few and wasn't sure if it went through or not. I like to double check.

    The more I see of the XDM 45, the more I like it. It doesn't seem to have that high center of gravity from you grip like some of the other springfield models.

    I agree .45 ACP is easier to find right now. The one caliber I didn't stock up on when I should have (9mm) is a bitch to find now. It's ironic because I have 4 handguns chambered for it....

    Ha ha... I have a few hundred rounds of 45, and have a decent deal going for ammo these days. For the cordage, I take cash, credit, check, money order, or ammo as payment. Someone took me up on the ammo bit a few weeks ago. $35-$40 worth of bracelets for around 135 rds of ammo. The short box was just spares, but they were Federal HydraShocks. The other 100rds... dude... Federal HST. LAW. ENFORCEMENT. ONLY. Yup. He was a cop, and I got some of his stash, and that's what I'm carryin' these days! 13 in the cannon plus another 2 mags full in standby. I was QUITE happy with that deal.

    Plus, the SERT officer who is testing out The Operator (my single-point sling) is going to get one, and he'll probably pay in ammo. My price on those is $100, so I'm thinking there's gonna be atleast another 300rds of ammo coming from him. I LOVE cops. I just flat out love 'em!!!

    I did; you do an exceptional job! Those are great looking. I just have to decide what the best option would be for me. Any recommendations for a guy that's 5'8" with a wide back? - I'd probably end up getting The Hunter due to the ability to adjust.

    It's going on an Arsenal SGL21-61.

    Oh, and I wanted to ask...those mounts pictured on The Hunter wouldn't be compatible with my AK, but I'm assuming you'd be able to attach a standard hook to it for an AK? That was my main concern...being able to have the right attachment on it.

    Really, the style is up to personal preference. They'll all hold and won't break on ya unless you try to tow a truck with it. (And depending on which sling and which truck, you might be able to actually tow anyway!) For connections, show me the mounts and I'll figure it out, I'm sure. I could do HK clips on the ends of it. That would probably work. Here's one on the tail end of The Operator (my single-point bungee):

    -Independent due to lies that hurt my family. Loyal to myself and my Bro's.

  13. Picked up 150rds of 40sw (50 AE @ $20, 100 Tul @ $30) and 40rds of 7.62x39 ($5.50/bx) today, as well as a new recoil assembly for my FNP-40 should SHTF That was a little pricier than I had hoped, but $26 for peace of mind is fine I guess. Also scored a single mag pouch for my CW9 for $7; got tired of carrying it in my pocket.

    I also saw a pretty BA handguard for my AK but I guess I don't really neeeeeed it right now. I kept from the strong urge to purchase it. It was a Mission First Tactical Tekko. Pretty sick polymer piece with multiple rails:



    All I have on my SGL21 now is the stock furniture, and I'm dying to replace it with this, a vertical grip and a Polish Beryl folder, but I just can't justify an unnecessary expense like that right now.

  14. And T-AD, I'm assuming the HK clips would work fine. I'll shoot you an email when I decide to purchase, and I'll try to send some folks your way that need a sling.

    Much obliged! Feel free to pass the info along to anyone interested. As general info, I take cash, check, money order, PayPal, or ammo. HA!!

    I have one of these; great knife.

    I've found that "Spyderco" is my go-to EDC company now. Their blades are simply fantastic.... Lightweight, sharp, good steel, ergonomic, and hold a great edge.

    actually, its duracoat on the upper + barrel, and that's the hard anodized color on the quadrail. did the duracoat myself, not too bad. I went with this as a muzzle comp 734627.jpg its also duracoated FDE, but I screwed up on that piece and some of the front face had some of the duracoat scraped off. can't decide yet whether to just sand the face clean and leave the duracoat on the rest, or remove all the duracoat.

  20. And I was all over the place colorwise, at one point was just going to leave it black. The lower will come cerakoted magpul FDE finally settled on that with just black accents here + there.

    Nice work. I used duracoat on a few guns this past summer. It was my first experience with it, and it really is a trial and error process. The prep is absolutely paramount to a good outcome. At first, I tried the all-in-one duracoat spray kit. It came out ok, but my OCD wasn't satisfied. I bought an air compressor with an air brush and did it that way the second time; Much better outcome.

    I bought the kit with the preval sprayer, worked out ok. I wasn't too worried about parts prep as everything was brand new, so just some brake cleaner and the harsh scrubbing pad they included, plus 600 grit sandpaper on the stainless. I did the buffer tube too, so the only parts that won't be fde are the ejection port cover, the safety levers, the trigger, and for now the pistol grip and stock. I think it will be pretty sharp like that, we'll see

  23. IC,

    Looks like they're OOS already...have you ordered from them before? I've heard some real nasty things about them in another forum I'm on. I'd be a little hesitant to purchase from them.

    Thanks for the heads up though! I definitely need to get some.
