Very fast shooting/reloading gun, faster than a lever and stays on target better. Well I have to say this was eye opening, I am familiar with Colt Lightnings in the ...

Re: Neat rifle at the Orlando Gun Show

Very cool piece. When I first got really into guns, I bought everything I could get my hands on. As I get older, I find myself drawn to the "different" pieces. This fits that description. I am intrigued with exotiic arms, an i.e of another you can share???? I do wish these Standard Arms models were...

Re: Neat rifle at the Orlando Gun Show

How much was he asking? Well there is the rub, he wanted 900 for it.. With him questioning the caliber,, I have to assume he has not tested it.. Considering all the issues with this gun.. It would be nice to get a bit of a range report before buying.. But it does make you wonder. On gunbroker there...

Neat rifle at the Orlando Gun Show

Came across an unusual rifle at the Orlando Gun Show, A Standard Arms Model G. Never saw one in the flesh so to speak. Real unusual rifle. Made in the 20s. Because of of the engravings, it looked like a custom gun.. But seems they made all of them that way.. The G models allowed for switching betwee...

Re: Caseless Ammunition Collection

POI, what would you consider the GyroJet round to be? As the entire projectile rockets out, is it caseless? Nick Semi Caseless category Nice assortment of rounds..
