  1. Ever try to stuff a A1 into it?
  2. The families of the victims of the "DC snipers" sued and won against Bushmaster. The company was sold to Freedom Group and closed post Sandyhook. Bushmaster was later reponed in Ilion, NY but with different staff. The previous staff repoened as Windham Arms. It is said the Windham Bushmaster guns are of higher quality than the Ilion, NY ones. The Windham ones are also from an era when there was only Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, Olympic making civilian AR15s at true government service specs and not cheap before everyone and thier brother started knocking out AR15's. I have both, my Windham is notica
  3. 5.45x39 is more expensive and tougher to find than 7.62x39. It has better terminal ballistics than 5.56 and higher BC so it shoots further. Very mild recoil in AK74s. I have both and really enjoy shooting the 74 but I cannot say I prefere one over the other. Most 47 accesroies will fit a standard 74 with a few exceptions. Surplus magazines are more expensive but Magpull makes decent ones for a good price. Every gun shop looks at you funny when you ask about 5.45x39. "don't you mean 7.62x39?" is very common, as is front counter guy shouting to somone in the back "we have any 5.45x39?" with the
  4. Why not just go with a 870? Plenty of them have screw-in chokes. The other option is a Mossberg 500 variant. Also has plenty of screw-in chokes. Both have vast aftermarket support in parts, accesories, stocks, and also a plethora of choke tubes to pick from. You can accesorize to go from ducks, to turkeys, to deer, to tactical all with the same reciever. It's just a matter of swapping out bits.
  5. I really do hope TN passes it. Not a snowball's chance on national though. We had it in my previous state and wiht the exception of one or two dumbasses, nothing "bad" ever happened. What TN will need is a supremacy clause with it. That way local entitites can't pass ordinaces that make you illegal just becuase you crossed some city limit.
  6. Used a couple of thier 7.62x39 barrels on AK's. No complaints at all.
  7. As others mentioned the scope is about 1/2-2/3 of that $350 if you flip it. You may actually turn a profit selling the rest for parts at the next gun show. As for Garand value for a shooter, I did drive down to Anniston and bought one of the refurb $650 Garands this last fall. Worth every single penny. New barrel, re-parkerized, new re-pro walnut stock set with CMP stamp. New-old stock sling, nice CMP case. Springfield with a Korea War era serial (having done a tour in Korea this kinda spoke to me). Looks like a brand new issue Garand. As I wanted something to shoot and take to the ocass
  8. Funny how differnt states do things. I too was surprised by the TN system when I moved here as TN was supposed be "a freedom state". Simpe things like in Idaho where I moved from, if you had a concealed carry permit, you didn't need a NICS or background check. You filled out a 4473, handed them your permit, they wrote the permit info down and put "NA" for the background check. Gave them your cash and away you went. This is how it should be in a gun firendly, free state.
  9. So who is gonna call the gun manufacturers and tell them they are wrong?
  10. You don't I didn't do that rather than ditching a Sig320 in TN?
  11. As above, but always check with the airline in both your departure and your arrival airports. True story: We visited TN from ID a couple of times before moving here. Flew SW Airlines both times. Called SW in ID found out what I needed. Was a very smooth process. Declare CCW, get tagged at counter, over to TSA desk, cleared, and on the way. Didn't think to talk to SW in Nashville though. Spend my 2 weeks in TN and go to the airport to return home. SW agent there rejects the very same box/lock setup I flew in with. Was all legit per TSA but the counter lady would have none of it. Asked to speak
  12. I have them for my AK74 and the run great. I haven't tried them in my AK47's though as steel surplus mags are still widely available.
  13. Taking a road trip through Jackson and possibly into Memphis this weekend. What places are the "must stop at" gun shops? I know none will have ammo, that is a given. Mostly interested in old wood and cosmoline especially leaning towards old Soviet type firearms and accessories. Large reloading supply shops would be cool as well especially if they have used equipment.
