    okee dokee. Just got a reply from the FBI; pre-arrival check are discouraged, as all entries
    into the NICS system must be accompanied with a 4473.That's a bit disappointing. Seems now I
    might have to ...

    I live way, way out in the country, and as such the customer based is limited. Heck I've sold
    only 28 guns so far, and I've had my FFL for a good 9 months.Everything has been very orthodox,
    with a few...

  • Posted in thread: break open revolvers - parts interchangeability on 03-06-2015 at 09:31 PM
    I recently won an auction for a little Iver Johnson/US revolver co. .32 break open. I love the
    hardware store cheapies of the 1880-1915 period. They're so under appreciated in terms of
    historical sign...

    Before I start; this is about civilian rifles, not military arms.I got ahold of a few old
    catalogs from the mentioned time period and the gun section is really so fascinating. Seems the
    vast bulk of g...

    I never claimed to be an expert. I just know what I like, and I do not like Berettas, nor to I
    like the S&W MP. If anyone is looking for a small, inexpensive pistol like the Jimenez, then i
    can recomm...

    But that simply is not so. You could indeed purchase a gun in the CCCP, if you held a valid
    membership in a hunting or sport shooting club, just like in modern day Germany. The law of the
    CCCP made no...

  • Posted in thread: Jimenez Semi Auto Pistols on 11-17-2014 at 12:56 AM
    I have never owned, nor seen, a Jimenez in person. But I have fired about 5 autos in my life; a
    S&W MP, a Beretta 92F and Cobra\Kodiak Denalhi are the only ones that come to mind and here's
    my thought...

    This is for a little personal project. I have a fascination with all of the commercial soviet
    products, from 333 cologne to the Argat computer. So far I have 2 Mosins, an IZH-27, and the
    blueprints to...

    but is there any actual proof of the presence or absence? Catalogs, Russian legal documents, a
    random Russian website?

  • Posted in thread: USSR civilian commercial handguns - makes and models on 11-15-2014 at 09:16 PM
    Almost, the Korovin was in 25 Tula, which was a special overpressure 25acp made at the Tula
    arms factory, but in all reality they should have gone with 32acp. According to the Wikipedia
    this small pis...
