Nothing "in the safe" but I do have a 10/22 on order and a stock and barrel set for it on the way from Midway. I've got a scope picked out but will wait until the stock is finished and mounted before I order it. Why pay money for something I can't use right now?

Ummmm...I've got a PSS with no rings, scope or bipod on it, and an StG 58 in pieces. Other than that, no! [BD]

I have a 1942 Winchester Garand receiver I need to build into a rifle. One of these days...

I would be in the middle of building a 1911, but purchased a Les Baer Monolith HV last week. Just ordered 2 more BM receivers for my 5th and 6th AR. Have been considering buying an older K frame to refinsh.

It's not in my safe, but I've got a 48 Yugo Mauser action sitting on my bench with a Richard's Microfit stock, waiting to go together. And waiting... and waiting... Does that count?

Still waiting on a bolt modification from HD rifle to be returned. After that I'm good to go until the AWB is over.
Link Posted: 12/14/2003 3:45:19 PM EDT
Let's see.... One lower stripped, waiting to have the parts put in. One lower waiting to have RRA 2-Stage put in One lower that's going to get its stock replaced with an ACE One 10/22 waiting on new stock and barrel for workup And probably more I'm forgetting. Oh, does brasspile having my .308 for custom finishing count? So to answer your question, not me. Projects, projects, projects.

If someone would by my damn S&W Mountain Gun I could finish my A4orgery.

-18" Steyer Barrel on my Imbel FAL receiver, just needs .253 locking shoulder. -one Romy SAR-2 awaiting front sight tower/threaded brake. -two Bulgarian AK-74 kits unbuilt. -four FAL kits unbuilt (two Imbel, two G-1) -one AR-15 AWB sunset project awaiting a receiver and Sep 14. Everything is on a back burner until I get my Pathfinder sold and a head put on a Toyota 4x4. Then I'll have about 5K for various gun stuff. This year. I'm also thinking of getting a Chicom SVD from CDNN.

A1 project-needs lower & lower parts, bolt carier group. Savage/Stevens pump 12g-bead sight, recoil pad, wood & metal refinish. Savage Stevens pump 12g #2-misc parts & refinish metal/wood, install recoil pad. Remington 521T .22lr bolt action-refinish metal & wood. Mossberg 500 20g-replace broken safety. Hy Hunter .22lr SAA-misc parts, grips & refinish metal. Yugo M24 Mauser-barrel bands & refinish wood replacement stock to convert her back from being sporterized. Mosin Nagant M38 carbine-find replacement military stock to convert her from her current "bubba" sporterized status. ChiCom SKS-replace soft oil soaked wood stock with something better, probably red/brown fiberglass military stock. Romanian ROMAK2 AK-swap in 922 USA trigger group,gas piston, etc to convert her to pistol grip. Also need to tweak gasblock & front sight (cross eyed Romanian gunmonkeys...almost as bad as Century). Remington M600 .308-needs a scope of some sort. Japanese made knockoff of a M37 Winchester .410 single-wood & metal refinish, bead sight. Some of these started out as a pile of gunparts somebody gave me, mainly the #2 Savage/Stevens shotgun & the Hy Hunter SAA. They get worked on as I find the time, parts & $$$$$$. Some of the others were inherited from family in less than pristine condition but have sentimental value. And I'll probably hold off on refinishing the metal bits on all until I can do all of them at once. The Savage/Stevens shotguns & Hy Hunter revolver will probably get a GunKote, etc bake on finish while the Remington 521T will probably be sent out to be reblued. It belonged to my grandfather & is a better overall gun so deserves a better refinish than the beater Savage pumps.

There's a Mauser carbine waiting to be re-assembled, a Mauser pistol needs re-barreling, a Luger pistol in need of MOP grips, oh yeah, and I also need to sand, prime and paint the roof of my Chevy.

none unless magazines for planned but still unpurchased guns count, in that case beretta 92fs and a semi-auto tommygun. and I guess a new stock for my M1, there's nothing wrong with the current one, but I'd like to get an unfinished one and stain/finish it myself to get a unique color. need to buy the stock though

Well, I got two brand-spankin' new FSB taper pins for my new LW carbine. All I need now is the lower, FCG, buttstock, upper, barrel, bolt, carrier, charging handle, FSB, and handguards. Its gonna be a cinch. Whew, I thought I wouldn't be able to get those taper pins in time [;)]. Ghost

Working on my 2nd AR- have a RRA lower w/ RRA parts and A2 Buttstock, and a Colt 20" A1 lightweight barrel; i'm still waiting to buy a RRA A2 Upper and bolt carrier and bolt. Got the barrel two years ago, so its a slow working project.

Actually, it’s a wonder that I have any firearms at all that can actually be fired!! Below is my oldest unfinished project, which I started working on about [b]seven[/b] years ago. Despite its somewhat complete appearance, it is totally unshootable!!

6 AR lowers sitting around, waiting for the AW ban sunset, to eventually be built into: 9mm SPR A4 DCM ... and I'm not sure what else yet.

I have a MEGA lower in the safe eagerly awaiting an upper and my Ruger 10-22 waiting for the stock and barrel that I ordered from Midway last night.

Two FNC Para's awaiting conversion to select fire. Remington 700LTR needing rings a glass.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 2:30:56 AM EDT
My AR is a work in progress. It's got some chamber issues, so I'm probably going to just rebarrel it. Then I'll have to add some glass and maybe get a new flat-top upper for it. Other than that, my other kids are doing well.

-Two Stripped AR uppers and lowers -Browning BT99 stock needs to be bent -Perazzi TM1 almost has a soft top installed. Lumpy - that guy in your pic can't be more than 5' tall.

I've got a stripped lower that's on the "available funds" list to turn into an SPR. I just got going on reassembling a double-barrel .410 that someone gave to me a couple years ago, broken stock and stuff. It just sat in my safe until I needed something to divert me from putting up Christmas decorations a couple weeks ago, now I'm making nice progress. I've got all the metal stripped and re-blued, but the wood's going to need some work.

I have an increasingly large pile of AR10 stuff - just waiting for the SEBR to get here. Which reminds me - I need to order a carbine "milsurp blaster" upper for it.... I'm referring to milsurp ammo BTW - although blasting the other "milsurp" might be kinda fun. Also, two RRA lowers, one of which will eventually become a DCM rifle, the other is a "spare" for now, until the AWB sunsets. My M16 is still months away so I haven't really begun aquiring stuff for it, but I'll be building a few large hole uppers for it in the coming year.
