Re: How often were they used?

In the US, on the USMC base if a 45 went missing, all hell broke lose till it was found. It was like GOLD. that holds true for every branch of the military if a pistol, rifle, NVG, CEOI/SOI or any sensitive item goes missing, they go ape $hit, the entire battalion stops whatever they are doing and ...

Re: How often were they used?

I don't believe there are any "hard statistics" of pistol use in battles. pistols are self defense weapons and not for "taking a hill" so to speak. pistols were issued, and still are issued to officers, key NCOs and to soldiers where a pistol was deemed to their duty position by MTOE (Modified Table...

Re: A different option for a scope mount for your GSG MP44 .22

thanks Polock :) the only high mount I had to clear the rear sight was a AIMPOINT one that I bought more then a dozen years ago at a gun show. my intent was to buy a AIMPOINT, but things change and I went with a IOR scope instead so this thing was sitting in my basement for all that time. then when ...

A different option for a scope mount for your GSG MP44 .22

saw this on another firearms board, so I thought I would pass it along. someone had taken a HK91 claw scope mount and if fitted on their GSG MP44 .22. so I got curious and for s^its and giggles I took off an inexpensive UTG low profile rail off my GSG MP5 to see if it would fit on my GSG 44, and it ...

Re: 30 round magazines

definitely agree with 72 USMC, get a USGI one. aftermarket ones are total garbage and only good for shoot at for target practice or for practicing immediate action skills

Re: Scope ring torque

here is what I did to secure the upper half of the scope ring to the lower half of the scope ring, I put a bit of non permanent LOC-TITE on the threads and snugged it up tight to the lower half. that was over 20 years ago and it hasn't budged http://pic20.picturetrail.com:80/VOL1715/11951772/2124321...

Re: Bulgarian Makarov

It was described as a Bulgarian Makarov I was asking the OP, he said it's dated 1979, Bulgarians didn't engrave the year on any of their MAKAROVs. you can only deduce that by the year code. only the soviets and E german engraved the year on their pistols. the soviet either the entire year ie. 1976 ...

Re: HK91/G3 Mags conversion for CETME

Had two CETME's. H&K mags were a hit/miss in each. Some worked, some didn't. CETME mags worked fine in my CAI faux G3. My CETMEs were early CAI builds with cast stainless rcvrs. I have the same kind of rifle, early CAI G3 cast SS that I bought in 1999, and which I still have :mrgreen: and CETME mag...

Re: Classic Firearms sks

That’s another gun I wish I still had and prices were still $130 haha I bought 3 of them when they first came in 94. for 50 bucks ea., pe...
