Your Gun Porn Thread

It was on the end of a line of AK47s.  The pawn shop dealt in guns that it sold to the local gangs - mostly to the girlfriends of gang members since the actual gangers could not buy guns.  The Model 8 was from an estate sale - the dealer picked it up as part of the sale and could not unload it.  He tried to even get the gangers to take it as part of his 3-1 sales deal - buy three AKs and get the Model 8 at 100 bucks.  

 

I saw it with a 325 price tag.  I had to get some power tools and offered him 25 bucks for the rifle.  Sold.  I ran the serial on NCIC and confirmed I was its second owner, and that it was not stolen.

 

To this day I chuckle over those chrome plated and pink AK47s with 50 rd mags and 100 rd drums with price tags at 2 grand each, and I walked out with a piece of history for the cost of a Mcdonalds meal. 

 

Yakima WA, you have to love it.

Don't be a hater.  I also got a MAS36 LG48 for 100 bucks at a gun show because the patriotic seller did not want to sully his hands with no "damn looser commie guns."  I agreed with him and scored a 500 buck original Vietnam bring back Viet Minh capture less than 300 in the world GL equipped piece of history.  And I made a dealer feel better for his patriotism.

 

To make matters more funny, he had dozens of Mosins for sale.

God damn, I knew I wouldn't like that answer. PA used to be a great place for C&R. My dad found this old beautiful Ithaca pump for like $30, and I'm an idiot who passed on a surplus M1 carbine in pristine condition for $200. You could still buy Enfields for <$100 here until a few years ago, too. The prices have been getting in line with the rest of the country recently, with stuff I've seen at gun stores for the past ten years suddenly going up a few hundred for no real reason. It's why I'm getting intense over getting a MAS 49 and a Garand before they get more expensive than I'm willing to pay.

These are weird dudes, for sure. I was able to snag all kinds of cool Russian stuff from "patriotic" dealers who are probably now kicking themselves for practically throwing Mosins and SKSes at people for super low prices. The one guy in our town I bought the Enfield from is infuriating, as he's one of those dudes that bought up loads and loads of surplus in the '90s and is sitting on a stockpile of interesting C&R that he's putting forth no effort to maintain. He just sits at his computer and brags about all of his stuff and refuses to sell it, as some wonderful old guns look more and more like shit every year. He once showed me just a huge footlocker full of Springfield 1903 barrels still in cosmoline that he won't sell until the prices rocket.

I really need to hop on the road and drive there sometime. Not the first time I've heard of this tale before, yet I still find it hard to believe you can walk away with such a deal...

Ignorance truely is bliss sometimes.

So, breaking my lurker status, here's a collection of thompsons and rifles (no idea on exact models, they all came in the same crate and are currently residing as displays at a local museum as a "free" storage place). People from WoTLabs might be familiar with these pictures:

Hell, how do you get spoilers working?

Is that an A2 BAR?

Looks more like the original M1918, according to one of the curators at the museum (and from what I could find on the gun).

I'm a bit of a layman when it comes to early firearms, so I'm not 100% sure.

 

 

Welcome to the forums!

Thanks!
