Agreed. I also have pre-64 M70 in .375 H&H and I'd much rather shooter it or the #1 than any of the high velocity magnums so popular nowadays. The older cartridges have a healthy thump but they...

I have a pair of #1s and love the simplicity, functionally as well as aesthetically. Its just a timeless design.

Howdy Mr. Deer,

I'm not expert on much in this 'ol world, much less the intricacies of some asinine political sanction. I have taken a goodly number of pronghorn antelope with the x39 though and...

Bought a nice Saiga 7.62x39 before the ban and finished the conversion on it. Turned out sweet and shot quite nicely. Sold it to fund an FAL. A better fit for my reality.

Can't comment on the kit itself but I'm sure impressed with the VLTOR parts I have used. I'm running their AK47 Modstock adapter with an EMOD. Fitment is super, adjustment is smooth, no looseness...

The Left's version of domestic terrorism: shout, lie, incite, and while doing so, run and hide from the effects of his/her behaviour.

Incredible imbecility.

Its so very hard to lose a dog whom has become such an integrated member of the family. They ask little and give much.

I just finished a similar weapon, a 7.62x39 Saiga that had the trigger group, AK mag mod and bullet guide installed.
