Anyone have time machine I can borrow?
Check out this Guns magazine issue February 1958.
I call a spot in the time machine
8mm, .308, and 7.62x39 will all belong to me.
Oh, can we make a stop to after WWII so I can pick up a couple of cheap SMGs?
Meh, Im all about the $50 G41s and G43s. Maybe the $500 Thompsons, 1919s, BARs etc.
Good luck finding 7.62x39 in 1950's america
I'll take some lugers, p38's, krag's and wwii parts kits.
I'd be making a few stops with a time machine
My dad said he had a Kraig when he was younger but his mom gave it away after he moved out. Fortunately we got his grandpa's .22 bolt action although I wish we still had the Kraig.
hell the time machine better be disguised as a triple trailer big rig.
The 80's $50 cases of chicom x39, less then $300 double folders, $50 sks's, back to the 40's and 50's to buy a bunch of mg kits to build then 68 register then durring the amnesty under a trust. Retire when I come home.
Just dont sell it all at once, we dont want the market to fall flat on it's face. Or do we?
DLO still has 85 transferrable 1919s....
What device will you use to generate 1.21 gigawatts?
I'll take a few of those $49.95 Lugers
Those are expensive lugers, there is page out of a catalog in my grandfather's closet with $25 lugers
What is your opinion on shooting surplus ammo....for a new rifle.
I just got a 700 SPS in .308. New .308 is costly. What is your opinion on shooting surplus stuff? I need a bit of consistency and accuracy in the ammo since I eventually want to shoot 300+ yards. But for now, itll be shot at the 100yd range.
New thread > reply.
$50 SKS's? I hate to date myself, but when I bought my first SKS, they were $79 a piece EVERYWHERE, I had 3. And then I picked up a case of surplus ammo (1k rounds) for $69.99.
That same year I bought a Mak 90 for $189.
$50 chicom sks's were before my time but my uncle says he paid $100 for his at a gunshow with a case of yellow box norinco ammo. I think I paid $120 for my chicom when I bought it several years ago, the ammo was under $80 a case then at local gun store. I did get in on the $79 yugos though.
And back then, they came with everything. Sling, kit, bayo, rocket launcher doo dad.
I also remember being at my moms place and cleaning off all the cosmo in our bath tub, and "forgetting" to clean it up. LOL , I got chewed out, and it freaking stunk after that taking a shower.
My dad always said the greatest thing was going and buying at Bannermans.
Its official I was born in the wrong time period.
No, not exactly. You reflect on the past, and what it does for me anyways. Tells me, no matter what, the time to buy is always "now".
Fast forward to 30 years from now. Think of how the newbs of the future will be oogling over the stuff we have now.
"zooomg, an M1A1 tanker for only $1500, I would have bought 5 at that price!!!!"
What's an M1A1 tanker?
I buy now, worry later.
