These interest me too. I've always wanted to get good look at a Dardick. But I've only ever seen pictures.

Obviously I specialize in Glock, but you give me any modern firearm and I'll rip it apart and put it back together.
If I had to state a favorite to date, I'd say the kriss vector. That is just an awesome platform. Such a cool gun.
I got one for sale if your interested Its a very fun platform and everyone ooohhsss and aaahhhhsss at it when I get it out at the range .


Im just finding that I have fallen for the AK type platform and moving this one to try to get my hands on a Dragunov in 7.62X54,
Simplicity at its finest , I have went to the dark side

WWI & WWII Milsurps. Started when my wife and daughter went to a charity gunshow at the local Lions club about 15 years ago, she came back and gave me a 1912 SMLE #1 MkIII.
I've sinc added another built in 1956, VZ24, 03A3, M38 , and looking for more as I can afford and be confident of quality and ability to still function. I'm NOT looking for wall hangers, and there is a lot of them available!

I've watched his Dardick video before, actually.
Isn't that a semiautomatic revolver?
