Chinese SKS (Military) / AIM Recent Type 56 $300
« Last post by edrod68 on Today at 12:16:51 PM »
Currently waiting on my latest acquisition (didn't really think I was going to get another one, this makes #4) from AIM.  I had seen their email blast for a shipment of Type 56 SKS with spike bayonets recently and did not think their prices were insane (Up to $475 if you went highest grade plus hand select and milled trigger group select).

Got their email blast on Friday last week with a batch of 50 that did not meet their grading criteria (bluing, numbers matching, etc.) and they also stated that a lot of the stocks had "trench art" carved into the stocks.  Price was $299.99

Needless to say, I could not turn down the chance at a $300.00 complete SKS.  I will update once I receive it.  It is on the way to my FFL, then I have to schedule for pick-up next week.

Fingers crossed....

Windex works. The active ingredient being the water to dissolve the potassium chloride.

Hand Guns & Sub Guns / I went to a yard sale.....

One of the truly awesome things about living in Arizona is our gun laws.
I recently posted about getting a Yugo SKS at a yard sale.
An older guy I know decided to "thin the herd" as he calls it. He sent word out on a local gun board that any of us could show up from 6 to 8AM and get first dibs. After 8, he would put up a sign out front for all to see.
This guy is in his early 70's. He's selling his contractor business and retiring. He started collecting when he came home from Viet Nam. One tour with the Marine Corps as an infantryman.
I rolled in about 7 and was happy to see a few local shooters that I hadn't seen in several years.
Since we're in the handgun forum, I'll keep it on topic. There were 2 Browning Hi Powers, one of which had capture papers from Viet Nam. A Colt Python, a Ruger MKIII rounded out the larger stuff.
What really grabbed my attention was when he mentioned that he had "some older pocket guns" that he was thinking about putting out.
With just a little coaxing, he brought out a tote bin full of them. 22's, 32 S&W's, 38 S&W's, and the occasional 38 Special. I'm not kidding. A tote bin! A couple were in holsters, but most of them were in socks.
Top breaks, single shots, a few lemon squeezers, and swing out cylinders.
Most of them were nickle plated, but there were some blued guns in there, even a painted pistol.
A lot of them showed signs of being carried and fired quite a bit, but about half were stone mint.

For this sale, he didn't bring out the autos, only the revolvers and single shots.

In the fall, the vintage autos come out.

You better believe I'll be there for that one.
Did I mention that I love Arizona?
All this is perfectly legal, no transfers, no paperwork, no infringements.....

I have a CZ-83 as well, (.32acp), but not sure I want to go through four calibers in the heat.

Glad to see some folks still out shooting!

If you lived close to me, I would make nearly constant offers for the 83.
I had one in .380 and it was stolen. Great little guns. I miss it a lot.

Many moons ago when I had a few black powder guns, I was advised to keep a small bottle of Windex in the range bag to kill the corrosive stuff.
I don't know if that would work here or not.
I'll definitely look into Ballistol.

Nice shooting! I've always liked the High Power. The nickle-satin makes for a nice looking pistol! I still have a blued High Power with adj. sights that I bought new in 1979. One of my favorites.  I also bought one of the blued Hungarian High Power models, although have yet to shoot it. Bought it as a mate to the Hungarian GKK .45acp, still NIB, as well.

I've got a range trip set up with my daughter and her boyfriend tomorrow. It's going to be hot and muggy, but I still look forward to it. Maybe shoot some .45acp and 7.62x39mm. I'm going to try out one of my CZ-82's (9x18) tomorrow. Bought them back in 2006 and have yet to put any rounds through them. Always heard they were fairly nice to shoot, too. I have a CZ-83 as well, (.32acp), but not sure I want to go through four calibers in the heat.

Glad to see some folks still out shooting!

That's a remarkable revival; nice transformation back to well-worn original configuration.
