I'm not much into safe queens, so I don't have anything "rare", but I love the historical interest of this pistol, my Walther ac-44.

All numbers match, great shooter, no import marks.

Are those grips cork? PS- Nice pistol. I am definately into the historical guns. All I have right now for that though is my Russian M44.

This is an H&K P7M8. Being a police return, it has a mill mark on the slide where the government insignia was ground off (something about Germany not being able to export arms officially)


It's my most "interesting" gun because of it's funky operating mechanism.

A placeholder until I find my picture of my uniqure firearm

Well my unique firearm was a winchester 1897 made in 1905 that was passed down to me from my great-grandfather (i'm 19) that was stolen, used in a few robberies, then recovered but missing the barrel and stock and is tore up. It's my restoring project.

Colt M1911 from 1918.
It has been re-finished, and the stocks are not original, but I choose to believe it served someone well in its day.

Colt .22lr Woodsman my Father gave me a few years ago.

My Dad was selling something in the paper back in the '70s and a guy showed up wanting to buy it (a lawn tractor, I think), and didn't have the cash, but traded this gun instead for the item my Dad was selling.

A while back, a member here provided me with quite a bit of information on this rifle(I can't recall your name, but thank you!).

It's not exactly a rarity, but it holds a great deal of sentimental value to me.  It is a gift from my grandfather, and it was given to him by my grandmother who purchased it not long after my grandfather got home from serving on the Santa Fe in WWII.

I find the craftsmanship to be simply amazing.  Beyond that, this rifle is in incredible shape - especially considering its age.

Thank you!

It is.  I purchased a box of Prvi Partizan 7.65 just to have on hand...  I would rather keep the rifle in pristine shape, but I do like having the option to shoot it if I wish.

Home made AR-10:

Early 1920's commercial Mauser c96 Bolo. The previous owner was a dumbass who lost the extractor and parkerized the pistol. I gotta replace the magazine spring and extractor, get the barrel rejacketed (retaining the original 7.63 Mauser caliber), get it refinished, and eventually get new grips for it. It'll be a nice shooter when I'm done.

Even in that condition. Say what you paid for it. Because we all hate you for it!

Now you need an AR-180 (Original not AR-180b) so you can wax poetic about your favorite terrorist organization

Ye olde late model Bolo...

Oh, and did someone say Armalite 180 (not B)?

I paid $350 for the old girl, and I'll probably be spending another $300 getting her restored ($15 for new magazine spring, $50 for new extractor, $150+ for rejacketing the barrel, $50 for new Bolo grips, and God only knows how much to get it stripped and reblued.). I'll have spent about as much on restoring her as it will be worth when I'm finished, though I'm sure as the years go by and Mauser c96's get more scarce on the market that mine's value will go up.

And yes, I'd love an original AR-180. Fascinating rifles. I just fail to see why I'd wax poetic about a bunch of assholes in Ireland when I could be waxing poetic about my new ArmaLite.

Grandfather's 1950 M99-R.  Made in 1950.  
Factory D&T for scope and tang sight.  
It's the only unaltered M99 I've ever seen in person.  
Not a safe queen, it's a shooter and it gets shot fairly often.

With the cut down BC stock does the barreled action flex in relation to the stock, or did you add an additional means of securing it?

Thank you - I love it!  A two-stamper, of course, but I can use the suppressor on other firearms of mine as well.  The overall length of it folded with the suppressor off is just amazingly small.  And the accuracy blows me away.  That 60 gr. round hits hard, and it is very quiet.  Still working out reliability issues - may need to try some different mags, maybe polish the feedramp a little.

But I find it amazing that I am hitting 4" plates at 100 yards, offhand, using this combo.

Did I mention how quiet it is?

My gunsmith secured it quiet well with the addition of a thick washer and bolt that holds down the read of the receiver into the stock.
