Re: Izzy kits 299.00 at PSA

What's everyone using for US parts on these? Only by accident, never on purpose. Why? I've never seen a 922r Police Officer ?? In my area, they're more concerned about watering your yard on the wrong day !! Yeah yeah I get it. But if someone was sending a kit to a FALsmith to be built and finished ...

Well heck. I went on PSA's site to order some FH crush washers and accidentally ordered another Izzy kit too. :oops: If this one is in as good condition as the previous 3 I'll be ecstatic. Getting 4 nice in a row may be pushing my luck though. Who knows I might get a type A stock this time or at lea...

Re: Anybody got a real 50.61?

If it came through one of the commercial U.S. importers....there should be no serial on the barrel or lower. If those are serialed items on the one you are viewing it's bogus. 50.63 and others have matched serials on bolt, carrier and receiver only. Nothing that shows outward appearance should be s...

Re: Bought me a new shooter to go along with tha L1A1's

Good score yellowhand! I have the same pistol in .45 and they are good shooters imo. Mine has never had a single hiccup since I bought it the first year they were introduced. Easy to shoot well and seems to be tough as hell. I trust it enough I put a light on it and it's my night stand gun now. You ...

As far as ammo goes I know I'm not the only one on the 'files that bought a metric butt load of 7.62 back in the day when SA,Port,Hirt,Aussie etc. was available everywhere by the case cheap. Many of us will never be able to shoot it all up in our lifetimes. Our heirs will be set on ammo for a while ...

Re: Who is Buying All the Ammo?

okay but who is buying all the AR-10's and M1A's? Surely not the go-to choice of a 1st time gun buyer. I should have bought one six months ago when I was looking to expand my collection :shock: There's a run on M1A's now? Cool I've had one taking up space for 20 years I need to list on GB then. Nic...
