    Nice start to a collection.

    • USMC03Vet

      Start?

      Let’s be friends!

      • claymore

        Yea that few is a start he can soon catch up with the rest of us with real collections LOL.

  • Cedar_92

    Where’s the AK? Every family has a crazy uncle or cousin

  • Jack Morris

    Actually, the reliability has been pretty bad. I’m in the process of getting rid of it 🙁
    I had to send it back to the factory once because the bolt cam pin was gouging the upper reciever and it wouldn’t cycle. They replaced the upper, but I’m still having a hard time getting any handloads to cycle the weapon. I won’t keep a gun I can’t handload for.

    • ClintTorres

      Replace it with a 6.5 Grendel build. You won’t regret it.

      • Jack Morris

        I’m leaning more towards a dedicated 9mm and starting the process of acquiring another suppressor. If I do another long range cartridge, it will be a bolt action.

      Stop! It’s SCAR 17S time! bowdagawow doo doo ♪

    • Unfortunately, that’s not the only time I’ve heard of those sorts of problems in an M&P.

      • Jack Morris

        It’s bizarre. It will cycle just fine for the first 20-30 rounds, but then the failures to feed start up every few rounds like clockwork. I’ve tried at least a dozen different loads and even bought a “small base” sizing die to supplement the standard die set. No luck. This has been a very expensive and frustrating project.

          Hi, Jack:

          Nice collection, and I’m glad you’re enjoying your guns so much! Sorry to read about the M & P 10, though. The symptoms you describe seem to indicate differential heat-induced metal expansion that, combined with very tight tolerances, are causing the cycling issues.

          Just my two cents’ worth based on your description, but I hope it helps a little.

  • Jack Morris

    lol, Most of them get used pretty heavily (many thousands of rounds). I’m just OCD about cleaning.

    • DiverEngrSL17K

      A very good OCD habit to have!

  • Zachary marrs

    Needs more wood and steel

    • Jack Morris

      The grips on the NAA Derringer are wood. That counts right? :p

      • Zachary marrs

        MOAR!

        • Jack Morris

          But if I put any more wood in my collection I will lose my super tacticool operator membership card 🙁

          • Zachary marrs

            NO EXCUSE >:(

    • mosinman

      real operators operate with firearms that are graced with Bakelite furnature

  • ColaBox

    I guess the knife is the red headed step child?

    • Jack Morris

      It has a super tacticool operator hatchet it can play with!

  • Jack Morris

    Thank you very much, sir!

  • Jack Morris

    Thank you! I was considering a PTR to replace the buggy M&P-10. A bit more affordable than the M1A. I’ve a got a couple thousand pieces of match processed 308 brass that my M&P refuses to eat. Might as well feed a hungry battle rifle…

  • Jack Morris

    Thank you! I can’t go to bed with a dirty gun in the safe. I know I go way overboard, but there are worse ways to spend an evening.

  • Porty1119

    What sort of handguard is that on the M&P 10?

    • Jack Morris

      It’s a Magpul MOE handgaurd. The handguard and buttstock came installed with the rifle as I purchased the “Magpul Edition” of the M&P 10

  • Jack Morris

    I’ve mentioned it’s reliability issues in the comment below this one. Unfortunately my experience with the rifle has been sour. I know a lot of people are happy with their M&P, but mine has been nothing but trouble. It has been riddled with feeding problems and sub-stellar accuracy. I’m currently looking to pass it off to someone more mechanically inclined and patient than I am at a discounted price.

  • Jack Morris

    I currently try only to purchase a gun if it fits a specific role (a few exceptions have been made). I do intend on adding one in the future if only to handload for it. I’ve only been in the shooting sports for 5 years or so. Things escalated quickly…

  • USMC03Vet

    Have you shot any of them?

    Everybody on TFB has beautiful firearms!
