That's nice looking. Glad to see the Lady of the Lake is getting some attention.

 

I personally just put my faith in a Thailand custom shop. I found some grips for my CZ75 on Amazon while looking for holsters. I picked a holster, and the grips.

 

Thus, I will finally be getting rid of my super ghetto hack-job grips on my CZ.

should be good

Remember all the feeding problems that we were having with the rifle? You basically had to man-handle the bolt to send one in? 

 

I was thinking about polishing the load rails/receiver in places, but first I took the magazine spring out and did some bending. 

 

It works perfectly smooth now. Just needed some massaging and messing around with some angles.

Found out that my scope mount on my Ruger American 7.62x39mm is loose. I put one good group on paper before it started really messing up. Going to fix it tonight.

 

But I had my AR. 3x prism sight at 100 yards gave me this. @Sturgeon, this was the 55 grain SP Wolf military ammo you told me about.

Not terrible out of my 16" mid length civvy AR given a dingus behind the trigger. And being wolf soft point. 

 

Most groups looked like this, so I won't bore you. Some had 5 shots, some 10. 

 

But I did stop on one target after my mag went dry. I thought I had 5 more rounds, but I only had 2. 

 

This is why you do groupings with at least 5 shots. Ten preferable.

Can I call my Del-ton el-cheapo mid-length budget AR Sub MOA now? @Ulric

I think I neglected to post pics of it, but I did end up getting that super vepr about a month ago, glad I did since it seems they've gone up almost $100 since.  Spent yesterday evening inhaling plastic dust and figuring out how to get a saiga .223 mag to fit in my vepr.  They only make 5rd and 10rd mags for the vepr and I wanted something with a little more dakka.  Still need to take it to the range, but from the seven rounds of .223 I found laying around and cycled through the mag, seems to work great so far, no hiccups yet.  Feels like it fits as firmly as the factory vepr mags do, the only issues with the saiga mags is they come too wide with too large of a mag catch, both things a dremel can solve.  Unlike the factory mags, this 30rd saiga mag has last shot hold-open too.  I've got a couple other saiga mags laying around to mod now.

Additionally, I think I'm turning French.  I don't recall if I've posted my MAS 36, but a quarter of the guns I own now are  French.  My latest addition is a cute little pistol that costs more to shoot than to buy.  Impressed with how well it feels in my hands to the point that I'm now looking for a gun that's as close to it as possible, fires a common cartridge, and is <$1000.

 

Seems the previous owner chose to remove the paint on it, but it's still got a nice parkerized finish underneath so it's not too bad.  Grip on the opposite side has a small chip in it, but it's got a lanyard loop too.  It is a fun gun to take apart though.  Some guy on YouTube was complaining about the barrel and recoil spring assembly being annoying to take out, I suspect that the issue isn't with the gun there, took me just a couple seconds on my first try going in blind.

I've been neglecting to post gon stuff too. Finally put my AR build together this past December. Aero-Precision lower and upper and bolt. ALG Defense free float handguard. 18-inch Rainier Arms cold-hammer forged barrel. Daniel Defense irons until I can save my pennies for an optic. Oh, and I went with the A2 stock because I like the feel of a "real" stock. It all comes in at just a smidge under SEVEN pounds which is what I wanted considering the weight of the barrel. 

 

Haven't even had a chance to think about firing yet because all my dinero is going either to Otter or to the house remodel and grown up expenses. There's a couple little things I need to tweek and nail down. The grab-bag-oh-lower-parts-kit had a defective rear take down pin which I need to get around to ordering a new one. Have it held into place wit a bit of brightly colored duct tape...

 

I have a hundred dollar Walmart gift card hiding somewhere in our pile of "to unpack" boxes either upstairs or down that needs to get used up on some 5.56 ammunition now that the weather is getting nicer. No doubt it is hiding alongside our good camera...

 

Again, apologies for the potato camera quality on m phone.

Nice rig, although if I wanted a fixed stock I'd have gone A1, not A2. If you have long arms it shouldn't be a major issue though.

Just like many of my body parts, my arms are also long.

It's raining baguettes!

For the approximate price of a dollar bill hi point, I've gotten myself a second rather interesting French pistol.  Judging by some of its features, like the uniquely shaped safety lever and its serial number, I'm suspecting that this was a pistol made after the liberation of France and for the French military, but prior to the end of the second world war.  Perhaps someone here might know the answer, but I've not got an idea of what that marking on the trigger guard is though.  Haven't bought any books on this gun.

That was possibly the worst attachment method that I've seen for a hand guard. It's dumb luck that we got it aligned as quick as we did.

 

Adjusting the alignment also changes the torque you need to apply to align everything, which changes the final alignment position.

Looking around more, that's a Moroccan proof mark that I was wondering about and now it's only left me confused.  My pistol is the Type I version and everything points to this being late 1944 or early 1945 production (round safety lever, latch under slide, the S/N itself, S/N in a machined out trench).  The serial numbers aren't documented the best, but 103000 is known to be May-June 1945 stuff.  Of the 6 other Moroccan MABs I found online, all are postwar Type II pistols with S/N ranging from 106658-117400.  I get that there's not really much of a collector's market for uniquely marked MAB model D pistols, but I still find it interesting nonetheless.
