M1911s are always fun.
check the bullets, I bet they've all got .854 on them too
It's Norweigan alright, and I don't see any stamps of the germans re-issuing this one to others.
Considering saving up the cash to buy a Ruger SR-556, anyone got an opinion on the things?
I don't have a real good 'modern' rifle and would like to have a piston AR of some kind.
Course if I get one I'm gonna be carving some wooden grips for the pistol grip and lower/side rails, gun has got to have some wood on it.
that was a joke
Does anyone know what the world record for fastest muzzleload reload is?
I thought this would be the best place to ask for opinions, I'm thinking of writing a thread with a series of extremely detailed posts on a few WW2 topics, as in, stuff the average "i played cod2 and CoH" guys wouldn't know about but would still hopefully find interesting. First topic would be US armour and TD doctrine/the Panther Crisis.
Good idea or will it be lost under a wave of "lol tiger is da bestest tank"?
Yeah apparently it isn't german because the waffenamts are missing, guess I'll skip this one, the chance that it was used by the wehrmacht is rather high though since it was manufactured in 1941 and the wehrmacht even used Norwegian uniforms.
Takes me around 30-40 seconds to reload my big Matchlock, never timed myself with it and I don't like to do sustained firing with it due to the possibility of the charge going off prematurely while reloading in such a big bore.
But someone using a Wheellock or any of the different Flint mechanisms would get a better reload speed than me because I have to remove my Match each time I go to reload.
Went shooting first with my class today, then with my Homeguard Youth leader.
Was a fun day overall.
My Contender has some issues, like locking and the rear keeps becoming unstable.
But when I shot the AG-3 (Norwegian G-3) I had no issues with it. It's a delicious rifle to shoot.
i don't even see the point of a contender
I don't see the point of a de-activated nugget.
(please don't turn this argument)
Guns like a Contender are like Go-Karts, useless for most things but lots of fun to play around with if that's what you enjoy.
OMG ICE BURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what's the point of a single-shot firearm that uses a horrible system for reloading, is made out of low quality metal by a MURRICA STRONG company and is just painful to look at?
An ad for a local sporting goods store called the 10/22 a shotgun.
