I've looked into them a little more, The price is right, and people who actually have them say they work great. The biggest problem I have with them is the price of ammo, and the availability. I think I will eventually get one.

I gotta have a "real" GI 1911, so im stuck with a .45.. If I were to get a commercial one it would be in 9x23 Win Mag, But those cost a fortune and I dont think they make the ammo anymore....


Was at the Pima Air & Space Museum and seen this...
A Experimental .60 cal MG

OMG!!

I know my house is pretty air-tight, because I was just outside finishing up laying down pavers, from our drive way to our deck, when the Amish dairyman across the road started spreading liquid manure on his fields. Thank God I never smell it in my house!

The stench is incredible, some of you have experienced dry manure and straw being spread on fields - no comparison! And thank God he only spreads near our house in Spring and Fall, because he raises corn on our side of the farm.

The only thing I am thankful for is that he doesn't have a commercial swine operation! OMG!

Your story made me think of that picture. LOL!

I'm thinking I definitely don't want to hear it from him then.

So, my nephew's wife has decided she wants to get her FFL...I don't think I have ever actually felt bad for the BATF before. I told her it could be a challenge.

Go ahead and bash the Amish on here all you want. They will never know.

I'm sending some things to the gunshow with my nephew this weekend: Rossi model 62 pump-action 22 magnum (as in a knockoff of the old Winchester shooting gallery rifles); a CZ-52 with a few spare magazines, and a couple boxes of ammo for each. I also decided to send along some Silver Bear (I know, I know) .308 FMJ ammo that I bought by mistake ; I have NO IDEA what I paid for it (no I wasn't driving). Apparently, I liked the shiny zinc-plated cases or maybe mistook it for 7.62x39mm or something; I don't honestly remember exactly how that happened. The Silver Bear is selling for $1 a round and more online, but I bought this last year at what I would hope was a better price. I bought an army ammo can pretty full of the stuff, but i'm keeping the darn can.

What is a FAIR price on the Silver Bear .308 FMJ? Do you think $300 is fair on a CZ-52 in good but not pristine condition (no rust, some slide rattle) with a few mags? I plan to add the cost of the .22 mag ammo (2 boxes CCI) and the 7.62x25mm ammo for the CZ to the price. I have tried to find what that ammo sold for last year with very limited success; I think the .22 mag was about $12-15 per box with the S & B 7.62x25mm going for about $20/50 round box.

Any suggestions on reasonable prices would be appreciated. I'm telling the nephew that I don't want to profit, just to "cash out" for another purchase.

I'm thinking 300.00 for the cz52 would be a starting price that you could work down from. Even with the extras maybe alittle high. As for the ammo that would depend on what type. 50s surplus, 80s surplus or new production. I saw some on j&g sales that was 50 cents a rnd fmj or hp. Rather high when I paid .13 a rnd for 80s chech surplus 3 years ago. Glad I bought several hundred rnds then. Good luck and let us know how you do.
