Drop any pictures you want to show off of your guns (or someone elses) here.

Webley:

The Fairbairn Sykes is kind of an anachronysm, but meh, it goes nicely with the British theme.

Mauser:

Don't think that's going to be possible, well it's possible just costs more money for hosting and bandwidth and stuff I'd imagine...

what kind of mauser is that?
looks similar to a VZ24 but the sling swivels are different, the front sight is different and the handguard is short. is the handguard cut?

ive probably seen it before but cant put my finger on what model it is.



ill start of with a few of mine.

rather then post em all at once, ill post em a few at a time, more fun that way, and at 51 guns and counting that means new content for a good while. :wink:

It is a VZ.24.

The sight is a "wing" type sight, the handguard is short (probably cut for reasons unkown to me), and as for the swivels, I think they're all right, because all the other VZ.24's and VZ.98/22's have the same sling swivels.

He're a few more pictures:

I don't know why those pictures turned out like that, but there's a lot less brown and a lot more blue on my Mauser than that.

interesting, i had never seen a sight like that.

the sling swivels however are not the common ones i believe. the ones on the bottom of the buttstock and the side of the upper band are the normal ones, the 2 side ones are different, ive never seen those, i have a VZ98/22 it only has the lower set of swivels. im no expert in czech arms though so it could be more common then i know.

interesting for sure, i wonder why the additional swivels.


i know what you mean about hte pics btw, its mostly because of poor indoor lighting and flash.

it almost sees "through" the bluing, it makes every bit of grease show up, and the more worn suface areas of the metal come out looking brown or just thin.

thats why whenever convenient use natural light for your pictures, it will show much better what your firearms actually look like in person


here's another few of mine.



this is my VZ98/22, dont mind the wwIIol box these were taken for another forum, not about to go and take out all my guns and re-photograph em without the box heh.


Image


you can see what i was talking about with the browning and grease in the pics, this rifle has a very nice blue but in the pics you see alot of browning, and the grease shows heavily.

Image


thats an awesome webly by the way, id love to get one, i got myself this though instead for now, an enfield no2mkI* as it is more representative of WWII issue.

the grips are original early wooden grips as this is a 1940 made pistol, which is early production for this model, unfortunately at some point the grips were sanded down, but they still retain some of the proof marks that show it is original to the pistol. again the pictures show a lot of browning, the blue on this pistol however is really nice and at about 80%-90%.

Good advice, natural light > flash

Image

Image

Those are the sights that are on most, if not all, VZ.24's


Also, Silent, I've been wanting to get a hold of a Colt 1911, but most are too exspensive. I've noticed that Rock Island Armory 1911's are substantially cheaper (and I like the way they're styled, for the most part). How do they perform?

much better!

that finish is nice.


on the RIA .45's, i havent shot one, but from what ive read for the price they are great quality, they are basically on par with all the other 1911a1 repro's but a good deal cheaper.

they gone up in price and yet they're still cheap.

these guys have some in stock for $320 new if you want one.

Sorry about the slow reply, in reply to DerMann's question about my RIA 1911A1;

It's a great pistol, bare-assed 1911 in it's purest form, shoots fine, and in the 600-or-so rounds I've put through it of Wolf ammo I've not had a single jam. This of course can be attributed to the fact that I clean my weapons after every day of shooting, but either way... For the price, can't beat it! Finish is great, I invested in the Hogue Wrap-Around grips because I didn't fancy the stock smooth-grip panels.

Lumme, that's a pistol! A very nice choice, and in a good calibre. How is .40 Cal? Is it closer (recoil wise) to 9mm or .45 ACP? How many rounds do standard magazines hold?

12 double-stacked in the USP I think...

That's for the .45, though. I think it's a few more on the .40 cal version.

Silent I do like the way your 1911 looks and those grips look comfortable.
To bad My dad wont let me get a pistol....but yet I can buy any other gun as long as I have the money.

Recoil differs between guns as well as calibers.

Most of my experience with 9mm was with a Sig 226 which even being a rental gun (aka beat the hell out of) was a pleasure to fire. Videogames, movies ect ect never really give them much attention but truth be told they are some of the best duty pistols i've handeld. If i didn't go for the USP a Sig would've been my second choice. I've also handled a few Glocks, and even though they're reliable and simple and lightweight, i just don't like the magazine release. I suppose with 17+ shots the last thing you'd have to worry about is magazine swap though, but i'm use to freely droping magazines.. Every glock i've used.. you had to pry that dang thing out like it was stuck in there... --- anyhow.

Describing how recoil feels is kinda hard other than to say that .40 feels right in the middle between 9mm and 45acp.

It's not as fast and snappy as 9mm feels. thats like a woman (or small guy) slapping your hand very fast. I tend to feel as though there's a little more muzzle rise in 9mm, but not as much overall kick. .45 on the other than feels slower but stronger. It's like a bigger guy giving your hand a shove. Even though there's not a whole lot of speed going into his movement he's still a big guy.. lol. Between the 2 i like .45 because it just feels more comfortable when putting alot of lead downrange.. like it's working you out more over, rather than just tenderizing your palms.

.40 is sorta in between the two.

The big selling points on the USP over some of my other considerations were (1911 style slide release - Free droping mags - The fact that i can completely fieldstrip it, and put it back it back together in less than a min without having to worry about springs flying off here an there so cleaning her is a breeze... Of course the rebuttle the Glock owner generally makes is " you have to clean it? " lol. But i like cleaning my gun. =)

Hopefully i'll be adding either a 1903 Springfield or a Garand to my collection in the future via the CMP.

The reason video games don't stress recoil too much is that overdone recoil yields a a bad experience.

In real life, recoil might be very complicated and depend on many factosd, but in games it should be very straight forward.

you're out of luck on the 1903, they just ran out.

infact i just got a nice 1903 remington from them about 3 days before they posted that they're sold out, i made it in just under the wire.

they also howeer removed the backorder message for the service grade garands, so i wasted no time in send of my order for one of those aswell, should have it by next week.


that USP is really nice, i still dont have any modern handguns personally, though my brother has 2 i use often.springfield XD9 and a kimber TLE RLII stainless.


here's my remington 1903


it's in VERY nice shape with a mirror bore, couldnt ask for more, the CMP did me right with this one.

once again, the indoor lighting makes the reciever look much more plum then it looks in real life, though it is a tad plum, aswell as making the finish look thin around parts of the rifle. the metal however is at about 85% and the wood only has a few little dings, its in VERY nice condition.


Image
Image
Image




here's my brother's springfield XD 9, i love it, much nicer then any glock, it stands toe to toe with the high end HK's and SIG's yet it costs around $100 less then a glock and comes with a bunch of accessories, its also much safer the most handguns, it makes a great carry gun, my brother carries it often.

Hah, thanks they are very comfortable, I was apprehensive about them at first when I was looking at them online because I thought they might widen the grip on my 1911 and that was the last thing I needed, as it stands they didn't at all and i STILL need an extended mag release, smaller hands than most, what can I say?

My dad purchased this particular pistol for me on my 16th birthday. :-)
