Let's face it, the Steyr isn't going to win any prizes for beauty and symmetry, does it shoot better than it looks?

That URL needs to end in .jpeg or .gif

If you are streaming it from your photobucket it is automatic, just click on the link and it Copies it for you, then you paste it.

If you are streaming it off of a page on the web, you need to right click on the pic,, select "view Image", then copy THAT url and paste it, then wrap it with img tags. Hope that helps.

That bullpup is a great design. It makes sense from a ergonomic perspective. I'd love to have the opportunity to shoot one of those sometime.

From last weekend, I'm trying to figure out how to post video.

Yeah Chris, the M-16 works a lot better with the correct bolt carrier installed.

My AR 15, the aluminum handguard gets hot quickly.

Springfield M-25

19 D 20, how do you like the Magpul magazines ? I picked one up last week but have not tried it out yet. They appear real nice for the price.

I like them a lot, reasonably priced and they seem to function flawlessly.
The only ones I like better are the H&K ones, but they are around $40 each.

I had some of those British plastic ones, and like nearly everything made in England they broke .

Like I said I can not post my pix because I am not home. Mine looks a lot like stpeteaustin's. I do not yet have my AR but I will and soon. I have around 25 guns, and the bitch of it is that you cant really go out and shoot them all in one day. England was smart to cut their losses. Just kidding man.


Hey, I look forward to seeing your pix my man, that's one hell of an arsenal old Stpete's got going there....way to go boys, lets go invade Iran or something.......haha, good work

Cheers


Makes me cry. Prior to the law change nonsense in Britain in the 80s/90s I could have put on a pretty similar and stylish display. Below would have been the display at its best moment in time.

AR15
First model M1 carbine . Pristine condition, came from Jordanian arsenals and had never been taken out of the wax paper. A beauty
Springfield M1A1 with Isreali Nimrod scope (Cost me an arm and a leg in this country)
Enfield No4T Sniper rifle with 32 scope. All matching numbers, with all its kit in original transit box. A classic Beauty.
A Rhodesian Cobra (Basically a copy of an uzi but spot welded together from angle iron in a Bulawayo garage !! ) Actually cheap mass produced farmers "tractor" guns....Imagine an uzi that had been made on Planet of the apes and you are close. Can't find a picture of one yet but here is a linkto the more sophisticated !! Kommando http://www.securityarms.com/20010315/ga ... 0/3133.htm the politics stinks but the picture is good. Scroll down in this blog to item 52 on the list "You know you area a Rhodesian if.." http://umarlee.blogspot.com/2006/09/how ... esian.html
.45 Glock....can't recall, was that the 19 or the 21?
9mm Glock.... well I liked Glocks!
My good old Browning Hi power . First gun I ever bought, £120 in 1976, ex Belgian Military Police, bought in an auction.
SW 586 with 4" barrel, it had been accurised by a gunsmithing aquintance of mine and was spot on, I loved using that one
A very well looked after Walther PP .380
Mossberg 500 with various "tweaks"
.45 Colt combat commander. My first .45...I didn'tknow any better, but I liked it and it was in the days when there weren't many other .45s than the 1911.
There were through the years various others too that I can't now recall or don't wish to, like the SW 645 and the Beretta 92 (What the hell was I thinking - they make good door stops)

In exactly the same vane as ColdHarvest, if they weren't illegal to have now , the one gun I would still own for those awkard little moments would be the Mossberg with no limiter in the mag tube. Of course that would make it a sec1 firearm, so I haven't got one....which is why I haven't posted any photographs of it...one. I'll have to see if anyone has recently posted pictures on the internet of just what I am talking about....

I have two of the HK ones but forty is a bit much. Hell they are higher now.
