My friend J.W. Ramp just built his first AK47. Up close with the PSAK-47 build kit I just put together from @palmettostatearmory. Chose their “MOEKOV” version with the Zhukov stock and MOE handguards. Very happy with how it turned out and thought it was [Read More…]

Another of Keith’s gems in his machine shop. A target pistol Beretta Mod 102. It still has the original box and papers. The barrel stay stationary and only the slide cycles rearward. It reminds me of the Neos and 87 Target. This is the predecessor. The large [Read More…]
I stumbled across this picture of an odd 1911 drum magazine. It looks like is made of multiple 1911 magazines in a rotary style setup. It sort of reminds me of the X-Rail for shotguns or the Nerf Pyragon where you have small internal magazines arranged in a circle and [Read More…]
Yesterday I met a machinist that is a bit into firearms. He showed me some classic Colts that he inherited. Colt Officer’s Model Match Keith also has the second National Match .38 Special 1911 I have seen. The first one can be seen here. The [Read More…]
Dave C. shared this photo of some brass he is processing. His son Cullen is helping him go through the approximate 88k rounds of once fired brass. Do you guys reload? Do you process this much brass?
My wife works as an Applications Engineer and used a Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM) to mill a piece of silicone and draw the Magpul logo. I am a bit of a fan of Magpul. I even have a “Magpul” license plate. In the photo you can see [Read More…]
This photo has been circulating online recently and it gave me the inspiration to try it. I grabbed some .40 S&W brass and some spare LEGO heads. Sure enough they seat into the casing. I even loaded them in my Glock 22 magazine and fed the mag into my Glock 35. Just [Read More…]
Miles V. friend Corey V. posted a photo of hos he packed his 1919A4 on a US ARMY Packboard. For fellow nerds, this is how the packboard instructions say to carry the M1919a4. I also managed to squeeze in a machette, 3 section cleaning rod, good chunk of cord, axe and [Read More…]
This photo was reposted by @ArmoryBlog and was originally posted by @theglockchannel. It looks like a Glock 43 stripped down and suspended. Possibly hung with fishing string and photoshopped out the lines. It does not look like a CG rendering, however if it is a CG [Read More…]
Independant Studio Services aka ISS Weapons posted a picture of a rare MP7 Deployment briefcase. I have not found any information on this if it is an actual H&K product like the original MP5K briefcase which you can see Rusty’s lightning review here. The MP5K [Read More…]
With a little bit of ridiculousness thrown in, Strike Industries put a SureFire 60rd magazine on to this SBR. They should have gone for gold and put a drum or 100rd SureFire mag on it. Oh and they added a DI Optical DCL-120 optic onto it. If its good enough for a 50 cal [Read More…]
Derek Smith aka @ikickhippies recently acquired a Hi-Standard HDM. It is uses the same magazine as the Colt Woodsman. It has an integral suppressor and designed to reduce gun shots by more than 20 dB. The gun was developed during WWII and was adopted by the OSS.
No, you aren’t looking at a mistake. This was done intentionally. According to MBX, this offset will make a PCC shooter faster since they do not need to waste time getting a proper cheek weld to get their sight picture. In theory that works for strong handed [Read More…]
Thanks to Uncle Webkins for submitting a pic of his PCC. Newly stamped, Quarter Circle 10 Large Frame in 45, running hush mode with Silencerco Hybrid. The first in a photo series entitled “I Sure Miss the eForms… Bastards!” I like the use of the [Read More…]
Alan of Battle Comp posted this online. I found it amusing. It looks to be made by CustomGunRails.com. Our large Laser Engraved Aluminum (LEA) rail covers are made of high strength, abrasion and solvent resistant thermoplastic bonded with a hardcoat anodized, laser [Read More…]
A friend of mine shared this photo he found on Reddit. It is a SilencerCo Osprey 45 on a 10mm Glock 20. Both have had sections removed to expose the details underneath. I have seen cutaway Glocks but not a 10mm Glock 20 version before. After a little research, this [Read More…]
Thanks to Adam S. for sharing this. A customer stopped into my store and said he had a gun that he was having some problems. I told him to bring it on in. He returns from his vehicle and opens a dirty, unassuming case and this was inside. My eyes immediately got huge! [Read More…]
Checkmate! This game of Chess with bullets from RUAG is quite special. Some, if not all, bullets seem to have some kind of surface finish over them, like PVD coating, Ionbond or metalization process. Unfortunately there’s no record of which calibers used [Read More…]
I saw this Boba Fett inspired painted SCAR 16S at the Kinetic Development Group’s booth at Shot Show 2017. It was painted by JB Gates @baxta914. Here is a close up from Gate’s Instagram account.
It’s not quite as small as the World’s smallest Kalashnikov, but there’s a lot of impressive details in LittleArmory’s Kriss Vector SMG. Bear in mind, the size is only 130x210x20 mm, (or about 5″ x 8″ x 0,8″), so they’ve [Read More…]
Photo of the day is a Tikka T3x TAC A1 with a 20″ barrel and a folding stock. Optics from Steiner Germany, that rides a bit high but most likely setup for Night Vision testing previously. This is a pre-production rifle, but very close to what the final product [Read More…]
Steve shared this odd gun sitting in the back window of this pick up truck. Can you identify what this gun is made of? I see a Browning A5 Remington Model 11 inverted but the handguard is relocated. You can see the ejection port and receiver below. I do not recognize [Read More…]
JW Ramp took this photo of his friend who wanted a new Tinder picture. This is what they came up with. BCM AR with DBAL, Surefire Scoutlight, Aimpoint T1 and what looks like Ramp’s bino MOD3 NODS. Who here uses NODS and Tinder? Perhaps not both at the same time. [Read More…]
