    I thought I would share these- a guy I know who works at a gunshop likes fallout and had some old non collectable guns come in and made these from them. He is thinking making/modding these for sale.

    I just picked up the black Arsenal Strike One Speed in the picture below (to go along with my custom "Super Speed"
    Hopefully I get a chance to take it out before "Geeks with Guns" at PenguinCon at the end of the month.

    I'm sorry, but that looks pretty damn retarded. There's maybe one or two mods that are functional.Of course, if you go for raider look of guns made by idiotic drug addicts, then ok. ;)
    But I don't see how anyone would want to buy this. The effort in making this is pretty slim and since people would want to cosplay with it at best, you'd need a deactivated or airshit gun as the base, not a functional weapon.
    Any reason why you bought a second one now that the new models (Stryk A, Stryk B) ought to be right around the corner?

    I think he is maybe wanting to sell them as movie props- I am not buying one.

    As for the Second Strike One-

    Two reasons- I got a good deal on the second one and Salient arms are a bunch of fuckers. Maybe they will manage to make a gun that is worth the money. Typically they just put their name on something do a few machine cuts and color part of it gold and charge more for it.

    Here is an example of what Salient Arms does- They started with a $700 Strike one (that they probably got below wholesale due to it being discontinued) fucked with it and now its retail is $2,699.

    Its got a gold barrel now and they stipled it and did some machining. It still has the original sights for god sake....

    Not to mention that their Glock mods pretty much always die when they are taken to a weeklong shooting class. :)

    Can you get Salient stuff in Europe?

    Also, there is supposedly an Aluminum Framed version of the Strike One in Europe- called the Ergal Strike One (Ergal being the name of the alloy used for the frame).
    Are those actually available?

    Import is never an issue, it's getting people to deal with a paperwork in the US to enable export which tends to be the issue.

    I've never seen a Salient pistol, but I've read a lot of things about them and seen a fair bit of mishaps in videos. They may be sexy to some people, but it appear that durability suffers greatly (and frankly, what did you expect, they cut away a lot of material).
    Some googling tells me it was available, but it was a limited run. They were also more expensive than a classic Sig Sauer X-Five...

    The paperwork here it import a firearm generally runs $400 if you can get a licensed importer to do the work for you. That is per transaction or firearm. The big importers import hundreds etc. using the same paperwork submission.

    They are actually better now than they were when they came into the shop. He cleaned off a lot of the rust and gunk that coated the shotguns.

    If one wants to get rid of old guns, you just hand them over to the cops, right?

    I would research them on the internet to see if they are worth anything and sell on gunbroker or sell them for whatever I could get at a gunshow

    Or you know find other gun owners who may be happy to receive said firearms. I don't know about your police but ours just take everything and destroy it even if it would have been a priceless museum like piece. We have been on our government to auction off any non-prohib firearms in Canada as it could be a cash cow for the government and keep grandpa's old bolt action hunting rifle from the burning block.

    Came back into town for a few days, picked up a few odds and ends, and made a few impulse purchases. The most impulsive of which is probably this:




    Mossberg Compact Cruiser AOW. Two in the tube, one in the chamber. It will be a while before I get to take this one home with me. It is my first AOW, which is a legal classification that won't let me put a stock on it, but will allow me to travel with it without filling out a form. Whenever the paperwork clears, the first thing I am going to replace is the grip. I will run a Speed Feed Birds Head like I run on my shorty 870. I also plan on replacing the forearm with a cut down wood forearm. And for grins, I bought a plug which will allow it to run Aquilla's mini shells, which will give me six rounds of very reduced recoil slug or buck. I am actually not a Mossberg fan, but it was a good deal at the right time. Now to wait for it.[/img][/img]

    I'm currently filling out the permit application for a Benelli M3. So we can be shotgun buddies. ;)

    AOW is a $5 transfer, right?

    You have very good taste in shotguns.
    Yep, the AOW Stamp is just $5. It is very strange for me to be giving the ATF a check for less then what I spent on lunch today at Taco Bell.

    I also impulse bought a set of Magpul furniture just because I like the Kryptek Typhon (their spelling, not mine) pattern. I had a Colt LE 6920 OEM gun collecting dust in the corner. The OEMs are sold at a discount to dealers who put aftermarket furniture on them. I was going to build an early 2000s M4 clone with a Knight's RAS and a Comp M4, but I hadn't gotten around to doing it in two plus years.

    I've got an authentic Iraq-used KAC RIS collecting dust somewhere too. It was a gift, but even if I get an AR15, I doubt I'd use it for anything really.

    But if you want period correct for early 2000s, shouldn't it be a CompM3? CompM4 is rather recent in the grand scheme of things.

    You are right that the M3 or the ML2 would be period correct. The closest thing Aimpoint currently makes is the Aimpoint Pro, which is pretty close to the M3 but with somewhat less battery life. It would be clone appropriate, but I like the ridiculous battery life of the M4 better. I'm a lousy clone guy, because I tend to sub out parts I like better.

    In semi-related news, I picked up a Vortex Spark AR for my semi-functional .22lr gun. I like the Burris Fast Fire III better for a low end red dot in most cases, but the Spark is already at cowitness height on the AR right out of the box. This is one of the most frustrating, least reliable guns I own, but I am back to pouring money into it because I joined a steel plate .22 league at an indoor range near where I am working, and it is the only .22lr I have that will fit in the locker.


    Just found out I've got a couple of special orders coming in this week, including something I have wanted for a little while. My gun purchases tend to cluster around April every year, because that is when the yearly bonus checks are issued out at work, and I have been a particularly good minion this year.
