Factory 26 Type 56 SKS from the early 60's.
Chief Special Model 36 - OPUS X Worthy
cz p-07. It went to the CZ custom shop for some mods.
Fell in love with a SIG P320 X-Compact and adopted it.
Picked up my Henry Single Shot .44mag this morning. All I can say is WOW! This rifle is beautiful.
A pair of Ruger EC9s's.
Spanish "Star BM" in 9mm Luger. Surplus, resembles a 1911, but different.
It had about 4 >Partial< Fail to Extracts in 100 rds. Cool gun.
"Debugging the Star B and BM.." on Google mentions how a guy at Gunboards (Begemot) claims that these Partial Fails...are almost always caused by a mag seating too high--causes drag on slide moving to the rear..
As to which exact metal he removed in this article, I don't understand.
If somebody knows, please reply.
Uberti Cattleman II in 357 Mag.
I just picked up a Italian Beretta 92fs Compact out of a used cabinet that has never been fired.
Smith and Wesson 586 (no dash).
Pretty excited about it.
Whole thread on it here:
Sig Nightmare Carry in 357Sig
Glock 20, Gen3, unfired from a poor young guy who got broadside by an uninsured undocumented alien with no insurance. Same day, a Regency .22 imported in the early sixties which I laughingly call a "pinned and recessed" K Mart K-22.
1976 Colt Combat Commander in .38 Super with two magazines. 99%. $545 OTD.
A 95% Colt Detective from 1961with a low-ball bid on Gunbroker.
Today I bought a Marlin 1894 Cowboy in .357 magnum. It has an octagonal barrel. Woodwork to metal fit is good, metal finish is okay, but not quite as good as older models and not as fine as Uberti or Miroku Winchesters.
Action is stiff, but cycling it seems to be smoothing it out considerably.
It has the end cap on the forend and a hanger under the front sight, other than barrel bands, and a 20" inch barrel.
One curious thing....instructions do not indicate how many cartridges fit in the magazine. Does anyone know?
I believe 10 (357). Could be 11 with a 20" barrel. 9 fits in my 16".

My new HD companion. 12g
Stoeger Condor Outback 18" Over and Under, front and rear fiber optic sights, set of Chokes.
S&W 1917 .45, S&W Hand Ejector .44 spl.
Test fire an HK P30 in a bit,.......if I like it will bring it home
My first 1911, won't be my last.
K.Kale 4-digit Turkish Mauser long rifle.
Glock 22 (40 cal) Police Trade in from Classic Firearms. $299 plus a couple extra mags for $9.99 each. In total with shipping and insurance cost $354. Pretty good deal I think, has some scratches on the grip, but I'll cover those with Talon grip. Metal is all good and it shoots fine.
38 Super Dan Wesson
