    It's awesome. I was only able to really stretch it out once last year, did a long range class from 333 to 1200 yards. Don't think I've ever had so much fun.
    Can change to 6.5 Creedmoor simply by changing the barrel.

    Another AR I built. Forged upper and lower, 16" barrel, Vortex Strikefire optic and back up iron sights. Had all the parts (except optic) Cerakoted in FDE.

    All these "built" ARs are imaginative and impressive.

    Even the only AR 15 kept here is vintage, same as the watches. A Colt SP-1 from 1972.

    Some might consider this a pimp gun: it's a nickel-plated Argentine Colt from 1959. Here's a brief excerpt from the 1911 Forum on these Colts:

    In 1941, after a decade of planning, Argentines established a large and diversified military-industrial complex under the overall supervision of the Direccion General de Fabricaciones Militares (D.G.F.M.), the Military Manufacturing Agency. Similar to the US Ordnance Department, the agency was run by the military. Among other products, this agency would eventually, through contractual agreements, oversee the production of identical copies of Colt's M1911-A1, Browning's Hi Power, and the FAL rifle.

    In 1945, after construction of the state-owned Fabrica Militar de Armas Portatiles (F.M.A.P.), Small Arms Factory in Rosario, Santa Fe (250 miles from Buenos Aires), assembly of Sistemas was transferred to the new plant and another 88,494 pistols were produced through 1966.

    Sistema Colts were manufactured in accordance with Colt's 1927 drawings. They were identical to US military M1911-A1 pistols except for minor cosmetic differences, and parts were interchangeable.


    The amazing thing about this pistol (for me) is the proliferation of serial numbers: they're on the receiver, the slide (twice), the barrel, and the magazine; they all match of course. This is the only pistol I've seen with a serial on the clip. This particular one appears unfired---but not for long.

    I have a Colt Sporter Match HBAR that is somewhat similar but doesn't have the old triangular handgaurds. That's a cool rifle.
    Old school, I like it!!

    Bought this from a friend who didn't make it past qualifying rounds for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Absolutely the sweetest trigger ever. Light and smooth...you just think "fire". That and one hole accuracy. FAS 601 22cal

    This is my old unlimited pistol..going back to the 80s with this one. Used to have a frame mount red dot but when that broke I stuck on this cheap grip mount. Even in this config its a one hole shooter.Colt Super Elite 38 Super. Built by Steven Seagal's gunsmith in LA.

    Also own one of those bought it when I was in SBU XI when in the Navy reserve since it was a Sig was the side are in the unit figured it would make me more better shot with it. Has West Germany on it so a older one think most sold in the USA today are made in the USA.

    Here's a 1918 dated Warren contract holster that I once toted the old 1918 vintage Colt Model 1911 around in when I was young, hiking both at home and on our old family place.
