Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Surplus Splurge

Oh. Also can't forget a pair of surplus dessert boots for practically nothing. $4. Could not say no. The last pair I had for 6 years before I wore them out.

Re: Surplus Splurge

Pics eventually. Some is still in the mail.
I scored a US Surplus sleeping bag today, with water repellent shell, and waterproof clothes bag for $5 from the thrift store. That's the second one in a year.

Surplus Splurge

Czech M60 canteen (cork stopper vs. plastic) Another Esbit stove (BW surplus. Dirt cheap) BW Butter Dish (fits inside the small po...

Re: My AR Pistol

How is the KAK Shockwave? I've got a KAK tube, and if it's a better rest/brace, I wouldn't be opposed to an upgrade.

My AR Pistol

Hey all. I was going to post this in pistols, since it is one...but it's an AR-15 platform, which I didn't see a subforum for. It's my first for 2018. Not complete yet, but remaining pieces in the mail. Built off an Aero lower. The Ghost Gun model, because I found it funny. I was gonna do a full hom...

Re: My FEG PA-63.

This one has been reliable so far. Eats my hand loads happy enough. Just had it out the other day. I may still throw down for a more modern 9, because why not? Lol. But for what it is, I enjoy it. Gotta scrub it out soon. Not because I shot corrosive, but it's bad form to get lazy with cleaning.

Sako M39

Hey all. Been a little bit since I posted. Figured I'd give my last 2017 acquisition a show. 1942 Sako M39. Haven't torn it all the way down yet, so don't know which receiver it was built on. Seems to be an older hex... It has the divot where the imperial crest would have been. Wartime stock. One re...

Re: Sharing: My 1911.

The finish is Cerakote on the frame. Slide is parkerized. Been holding up fine the last few years. Seems pretty tough to me. I like it.

Re: Bulgarian Makarov

Huh. Learned something new. Thanks for the data.
I figured they were police issue because they were distinctly not army. I could swear I've heard them referenced as such elsewhere, but that also could have easily been incorrect.

Re: My FEG PA-63.

Umm. I used to have a PA-63. Sold it. Regretted that. Found this at my local shop. Is nicer than the one I owned previously. Bought it. It has a benefit of still being all metal, and a bit lighter due to alloy frame. I like 9x18, and chromed bores. It has a benefit in that it could double as a carry...

Re: My FEG PA-63.

I'm not well versed in Walther pistols. I still like my PA-63. Lol. I'm guessing the difference is overall size?
