1874 SAA.  4 digit frame.  Not factory grips but been on the gun as long as anyone knows.  At least 80 years.  

Just got my .264 win mag back.  This is a pre-64 Model 70 I had picked up at auction. Barrel was somewhat shot out when I got it and had some rust damage to the finish.  Action was very clean so

There are people on this site that would gladly load you on a train car bound for an extermination camp for being conservative and thinking differently than they do. Glad most of them stick to the cR.

Yes, 100 yards indoors. Full disclosure, This is a precision gun, not a lightweight rig, so

A .300 mag...indoors....with a muzzle break.

I'm sure everyone around you had a peachy time.  You have to double up your ear pro?

My ears are ringing from here.

Yeah I run it with a Sig suppressor, that’s an old pic. I got a silicone suppressor cover that also seems to help, I really like it. Here’s a screen shot from a slo mo vid one of my kids took.

The guys next to me and the range officer were like “oh shit...” when I got the gun out of the bag without the suppressor; there was an audible sigh of relief when I put the can on (it’s a quick-disconnect style). But I do plan on plugs and muffs at indoor ranges just in case I’m next to a guy with a big brake pointed right at me.

Yeah, without a can can be painful for those on either side, even with a barrier.  Beautiful gun!

Went to an outdoor range with my uncle that shoots a .300mag with a muzzle brake. It was the only gun that set off car alarms that day.

Probably mid-80's I'm guessing was my 1st experience around a brake...someone touched off a .300 Weatherby they had taken to Kleinguenther and everyone was looking around like WTF.  I think my 1st thought was that someone had just blown themselves up with a hand load.

Long story, but back in the 80's I acquired an 1100 LT-20 that's new in the box, but had a busted stock and cracked forend.  It's been in the back of my safe forever.  I still have the forend but the stock is long gone.  I just dug it out while reorganizing and started down a rabbit hole thinking I'll fix it.

The googlemachine keeps pointing me toward synthetic replacements.  I really don't want to put plastic on an early 80's 1100.  

Any of you shotgun fanatics have a source for quality replacement stocks?

The auction sites have a bunch.  It’s where I buy a bunch of really really nice takeoffs.

I’m in the same boat. I have a 20ga wingmaster we cut down for kiddos. Trying to find a wood stain match has been tough sledding. eBay will have one every once in a while but they want a shit ton.

My favorite was this old fart rolled up with a giant case, broke out his replica Quigly Down Under 45-90 rig, and started sending 500+grains of pure awesomeness down range.  

He was near enough that the "thump" and giant cloud of smoke was apparent.  He'd open the breach and you could look down the back like he was loading artillery rounds.

When I go to an indoor range, it's mostly to do sight-in and ranging/holdover/scope work on an airgun.  So I am concentrating pretty hard and trying not to cause many fliers.

I'm a special case, but the artillery really wrecks my day.

Yeah - I thought eBay would be a quick solution but the few fitting pieces I saw were astronomically priced.

After being told there was a 5 to 6 month wait this showed up on Tuesday after just two months.

Laure Tactical AR15 Ultimate Upper Kit with an 18" barrel, stripped lower billet, and the lower kit. Can't wait to get this put together.

They posted a bunch of videos on IG with flats and flats of builds. You lucky sunnuvabitch!

Apparently they hit it hard and completed a ton of their back order builds.

@Speedtrucker  That's awesome.  Can't wait to see it all together.  Two months isn't bad at all considering the times.  Congrats on getting a nice surprise.

I got a little buyer's fever during an auction in PA.  I guess you could call them bucket guns, but my wife says my bucket is too big and should they should really be called storage tank guns.

Got a Rem 600 / Mohawk in .308, a Winchester 1905 in .35win and a 10/22 in .22mag.

Should have them in the coming week and will put some pictures up. 

It's interesting that the hardest one to find is that 10/22 Mag.  They just didn't make that many and for some reason are rare to see for sale.  Gun has a reputation for problems, but if problems are a qualifier, I'd have been put on the scrap heap years ago myself.  Just need to add the .44 carbine now, but lord those prices have gotten lofty.

I'd like to pick up another 10/22 Mag if anyone sees one that's on the market.

Suggestions/considerations for 1st AR purchase?  

Budget is $1000 new or used.   

Mainly farm/ranch shooting, ranges etc. 

Don’t know enough the about ammo differences to say one or the other is preferable. 

Of course it should look awesome  

Would eventually like to add suppressor. Will probably want to modify or customize down the line.

Brands, models, current deals?

BIL has this

AR-10 adds a lot of weight due to the longer action.  Just keep that in mind.... those are your .308, 6.5 Creedmoor etc. 

One idea would be to get a PSA lower and upper set in AR-15 and standard 5.56.  Then you could add uppers in .300bo and 6.5. Grendel later and have 3 guns in one.  
 

1000 ways to skin that cat-  just one solution

Ar-10s are proprietary too correct me if I’m wrong. Nothing really interchanges between brands.

By and large, you are correct.  Being non milspec, mixing and matching AR-10 uppers and lowers from different mfgs is a crap shoot.  even some generations of components within the same mfg family can be problematic.

I’d do 300BO.

You can get something nice for $1000.

Ammo sucks right now but it’s getting better. I saw 9mm blazer brass on the shelves at academy Thursday.

Hey guys, here's a link to a spreadsheet of the ammo my dad still had when he passed. I just finished putting it together but still need to go through and see what I should price everything at. I just wanted to share it with y'all so you can take a look and just see if there's anything there you might be interested in. I haven't put together the list of guns yet, but I did go down and take pictures of everything and will be putting that together once I'm done dealing with the ammo.

Nice.

I really need some 30/06, and the .308 Win. I’ll pay market price, as would anyone else around here. You’ll have some eager takers on the .45, .223, and .22 lr.

Are you in austin? If so I’ll take any 9mm at retail. If not in austin anyone closer can come get it.

It looked like 8 boxes plus the 25 rounds of hornady.

Thanks. I'll try to head down to SA soon and get some pictures of everything. Here's the list my mom was able to send me.

I'd be interested in the Pietta 1860 Navy revolver. Possibly the Traditions flintlock, but that o e probably isn't worth as much to me as it would be to someone else. Neither one of those are legally firearms, FYI, so you can actually just mail them through UPS or whatever if you sell them. And you don't generally have to worry about someone who is buying black powder guns being shady.

Where were you able to find it?  I signed up for Midway notifications about 4-5 weeks ago and haven't gotten a single one.   Just for simple stuff.  .22 for the kids, some .243 so I can change the glass and actually shoot it in.   Frustrating.

I'd be very interested in the .45 Colt if it isn't spoken for.
