Official Gun Porn Thread

88 posts in this topic

I go on other forums occasionally, and I always love it when they have the "Gun Porn" threads... so whenever you see something sexy, post it up! It doesn't have to be survival related, just awesome.

 

Starting things off with the Remington 725 in .270 Winchester I just picked up last night. MAN, was she crusty! Dust, debris, surface rust, and a bore that was pretty, well, gross. I spent two hours disassembling and cleaning the old girl...cleaned up pretty nice!

Good catch just look it up they had trigger issues with many Remington bolt actions best to just by  BOLD trigger from Boyds and replace it.

 

I warn the reader that what I am about to post is an opinion and do not take it as gospel or you may DIE. OK onward through the fog as i recall the real problem was the oil used would get old and turn to varnish and the trigger and firing pin could stick and when you were not expecting or bump it could go off.  

 

I like Bold triggers and I use REMOIL or Breakfree. I am a Mauser freak so that is all I mess with but many moons ago I did have a few Remington's  600 mohawk and 700 BDL's   I am fond of Steyr model S Rifles in magnum calibers

I've always been a Timney guy myself, installed several in my day.

 

This Remington 725 is the deluxe variant of the 721/722, with a drop hinged floorplate and three-position safety. It came before the 700 and its trigger issues. I pulled this one completely apart, bolt and all, and it has been thoroughly de-spooged. The rifle definitely was used and stuck in a corner, from the huge amounts of light surface rust (that came off cleanly) and the thick layer of dust.

 

Ain't none of youse other guys have some gun porn pictures? Geeez...do I have to do all the work?

again many moons ago had a Finnbear  over the years buying trading.

I have owned most name brand rifles and found I HATE MYSELF FOR TRADING THEM .....  LOL  the longer you liv them more you find the ones you had were classics.   I think I lived in a sweet spot of time of firearms metallurgy fit finish design  Today the technology of optics and accessories are very good but I do like older rifle design better but that is personal opinion.

I shun posting "certain" pictures as there are people that brought attention to themselves and have been swarmed and lost everything. --- land of the free LMAO  There was a cop show and they posed the "ARSENAL"  a rat bag of single shot shotguns ragged looking tube magazine 22'2 a deer rifle and a few crap pistols.

 

To the uninformed masses that choose not to own firearms more than one is confusing they are not hunters or shooters and are easily led by an over zealous persecutor who is equally STUPID !

 

I have a few friends that goth their parents guns after they passed and they keep them for sentimental reason --- don't shoot them just recall pit fires cold hunting mornings out for deer or birds.

 

Then you have the friends of fur fin & fowl who would put you to death for harming a little critter same bunch that throws paint on ladies that wear fur coats and wraps picture a face of a screaming Nazi at a Jew and all that hate and you have the PITA people down to a T IMHO.

 

There is no room for live and let live on the left they hate you because you have an opinion and they hate you more because you have a gun I use the word hate because there is just no other word that really is equal to the fact that they would send your children to re-education camps  and kill your wife and close family Imagine Pol Pot's Cambodia !

This is the same mindset of the people that took over Wall Street if they could they would destroy all corporations spread the wealth and kill all the stock brokers. The funny thig is they would use violence and force and guns to do it (the end justifies the means)

 

I applaud your idea and I for one would love to see this topic flourish but........

 

I know Trump has been elected and all he said BUT I have bet horses fighters football baseball hockey Jia Alia cards and what color fruit loop will come out of the box next and to date no laws have changed he has not been inaugurated and until I see nothing that alters my defensive posture. in fact any time between now and until  Jan. 20, 2017 anything can happen I sense a real problem and we had better all pray for nothing to happen between now and then IMHO.

Some snapshots I took for a Survival Cache article I just submitted on single action automatics. Thought you guys might like them. Part one of the article should be up in the near future.

Hah! Nope, just borrowed from family! The P220 SAO (Single Action Only) is mine, the Browning Hi Power Practical is my father's, and the Series 70 1911 is my brother's.

 

My first "real" semi-auto pistol was a S&W 39, but I quickly graduated to a 1911 and loved to carry it in a SOB holster cocked and locked. But then I discovered Sig P220s and I pretty much forgot about 1911s. :D

SIG was a good pistol I am not familiar with anything after the 1990's when all the Mfg's started mingling or producing plastisch crap I did get a Glock and it was a shooter but I did not like its wallowing in the hand weight shift as the mag emptied and generic look.  If I worked for an agency that either bought or required one no issue as it is a small portion of pay for a job and it's a write off,

 

Since I no longer work for a agency that demands my allegiance code or binding legalities, I do as I please and it ain't carrying a plastic generic shooter,
