    That's still a much better deal than the real STG44's I found on Gunbroker at $11,000 each.

    Can I still buy from there if I'm in the US? I know importing guns is annoying but I've never had to do it as yet. Mostly because all the guns I want to import, I can't. Stupid import bans.

    it's ironic that real Stg44's found in the EU are usually cheaper than the newly manufactured ones.

    though, frankly, i don't really see the point.

    I have a thing for old / old-style guns. It's the collector in me. Though I do have my fair share of modern guns too.

    well, importing 'evil' guns like that to the USA sure won't be easy. can't help you with the specifics though.

    Evil..? How is it a "evil" gun, and why should it be harder to get a hold off because Germany used it?

    I have one of those, in .45 longcolt - it's an uberti from italy, those guys make some excellent reproductions from the cowboy era.

    Not too fun to shoot, unless you like to get powder in your face from the backblast.

    ---

    No, it's not a big deal and I'm not saying putting an original stock on it will make it 'original' - just correct.

    It's a very nice Gewehr 98a Karabiner with good markings and matching serial numbers - except for the stock being fubar'ed.

    The barrel seems in good shape and the wood is nice. *shrugs* maybe I'll just stick an ebony cap on the end?

    If anybody has a clue where I can find a stock for it for under $300, I'd appreciate it.

    Should be alright, click here to check out there site for details on American shipping. I figure if the weapon is legal in Socialist shit-hole Canada it'll be so in the United States... until your new tyrant tries to take your guns away, that is.

    Oh, and the rifle I bought is NOT the Stg.44 repro, although in a few weeks I'm going to acquire one from the same store. The rifle I own is one designed and tested in 1942 (!), called the "MP-42" in Germany, known from Marstar as the Mkb-42(H).

    I'd say the Kalashnikov rifles are "eviler" than StG.44s and MP-42s, however they litter the homes of US gun owners all over.

    Also, real StG.44s in Europe, what do they go for and do you know of any suppliers?

    ever notice HOW those AKs are imported?

    they're Saigas in hunting configuration or in parts kits with receivers cut to bits with a plasma torch...

    the AKs are modified (to pistolgrip configuration) or reassembled in the USA (using an american made receiver and spare parts to comply with US laws).

    a Stg44 has a pistol grip, is an autoloader and has detachable large capacity magazines.
    chances are pretty fucking huge you can't import that stuff legally into the USA...

    Dug through the laws... even if it were semi-auto I wouldn't be able to import it. I'll have to see if someone manufactures something similar in the US.

    -edit-

    apparently there's a company working on making reproductions in the US.

    i believe that there's several companies in the US already manufacturing some (though there are variations between the versions).

    they cost a lot though...

    I have got to stop going to gunbroker.com - that place is like a crackhouse to me.

    I just bought an HKVP70z over there for $399.00 - if I keep this shit up, I'll only have about a grand to spend at the gun show on the 28th...



    It's a little piece of history - first polymer pistol ever (fuck glock) and it was the 1st 9mm I'd ever owned. Sorry I ever sold it.

    Maybe I can find someone to do a little trigger work on it? It has a horrible heavy DA only pull.

    yeah, has a reputation for having a horrible trigger.

    that and being insane with the stock + full auto. but i guess that's a few features you don't get for 399$ ;-)

    The trigger is difficult to manage because the first shot is about 12-14 pounds of pull. If you can learn to not fully release the trigger, the second pull is around 9-10 pounds.

    But it's very tricky to do. The previous one I had was reworked to a 10 pound pull.

    It wasn't full auto with the classIII stock attached - it allowed a three round burst option to become activated.

    $399.00 is a great price though - most go for around $500.00 these days - I sold mine for $450.00 several years ago.

    The classIII version with the stock will run you around $5300.00 plus your tax stamp.

    Which revolver is most common in US ?

    Probably the S&W model 10 is the most produced and copied revolver in the world, not just the U.S. - it began production in 1888 and is still being produced in some countries today.

    (edit)

    Here's some of my collection:

    This is my mystery mauser. The barrel is 23 1/2" long instead of the standard 29 1/2" long.

    Any ideas?

    Could be something as simple as somebody getting a high quality barrel chop and turning it into a hunting carbine, you see that quite often over here.

    BTW, Sua, awesome pictures, I wish I could go to a show like that.
