Re: New Range Toy!

Took this shotgun out for a spin at our annual Red Wing Machinegun Shoot this June. Flowless performance. Recoil was lighter than expected, lighter than Dave's Saiga 12. Blasting things with slugs at 100 yards almost made me forget this was a smoothbore shotgun and not a rifle.

New Range Toy!

It's been around a while, but I've never heard of it, being outside my area of interest in the past. But since it was reliable, and quite inexpensive, it looke...

Re: FG42 1st Model for-sale on GunBroker......?

I've held two of these in my hands, and wished I owned one. However the price far outweighs the desire to own one.

Re: Is my semi MG42 supposed to be making this noise?

As you draw the bolt back, you are also drawing the barrel back until the rollers encounter the camming piece, whereupon they are forced inwards, unlocking the bolt from the barrel locking piece. Once free, the barrel can return to the forward position under the force of t...
