Z-M

It's a Z-M rifle, Australian I think? (see the logo on the magwell). The gas/recoil/spring assembly rides above the barrel like an AK. There's another similar recent production US rifle advertised in Shotgun News but the name escapes me at present.

A standard direct-gas AR would require a lot of pretty extensive mods to run identically.

I'm to lazy to walk in the other room and get my copy of SGN, but remember they have the back cover, and are doing the short gas piston deal on thier AR's.. Don't know anything about them, but sure the piston/AR guys do.. remember they had a phoenix phone number..

SGN... wow, what would we do without them.. Don't know about you guys, but always look forward to seeing the new one.. I don't think there as good as they were when you could actually find weapons for sale by the individual.. Assuming you guys remember when that was most of the content and not advertisement..

Shotgun News

When I first started dealing guns (got my FFL), I went through every issue line by line, looking for things on which I could make some money. I practically lived for the next issue to arrive. Then it started going downhill, except for distributor ads. I discovered Gun List, which was primarily individual ads, and sorted alphabetically by manufacturer. For me, since I dealt primarily in used guns, it was great. Now since I no longer have an FFL, I don't subscribe to either. When I pick up an SGN from a newsstand, I'm appalled by how it's gone downhill. Also, Gun List is just a shadow of what it used to be.

ah...maybe thats cause we are...whatever.. yeah i agree about gun list, and obviously how both of them have gone down hill.. i was that same guy, if you remember they had category numbers..(sorta like a library Dewey decimal list) ((thinking ol Schuyler's getting a Woodie now)) anyway id always check for 1911's then the pre war categories.. Then Colt revolvers.. I remember thier was a couple in Prescott who did a LOT of Colt trading back then.. Talked to them a couple times on the phone, but could never quite get together on price..Good people tho..This was before Colt cut back and im thinking they wish they had every old Colt they sold over the years..

Guys time to go fight with my lovely wife.. Say hi to my pard Vaq for me.. One of the sad things about Gary was the timing.. Vaq and his wife were stoping by before Gary went south on us, and unfortunatly becuase of that i didnt get to meet or buddy Vaq..maybe next time.. anyway pls tell him to look up the comment (old sumbitch loves to see his name in print ha ha) .. He's one great guy.. Ok dudes, see ya later..

If you want to go cheap and redneck on extra cooling for Lumpy, re-route the windshield washer lines to the front of the radiator. If she starts heating up more than you like, a squirt of evaporative cooling at your fingertips! Yep, it works.

I know Vaq, my

Subaru has an intercooler water sprayer that does the same thing, except I put rubbing alcohol in the reservoir instead of water, it dissipates heat better.

Do you remember the huge, multi-page ads in SGN from J&G Sales, Natchez, Century Int. Arms, etc.? I loved them, because they had all the new, currently manufactured guns and the dealer prices. Early on I practically stopped buying the new guns because everybody at the gun shows had them and were cutting the prices and each other's throats, so there was no possibility of anything but minimal profit on them.
One of the best deals I ever got in on was working with the owner of a pawn shop in Sapulpa, OK. We'd go together on buying all of the revolvers from a Police Dept. that had just "upgraded" from revolvers to 9 mm semiautos. They'd be excellent mechanically, and only have holster wear. We'd take those that had lost most of their blue, completely disassemble them, bead blast or sandblast them (using very small grit), and parkerize them (sometimes green, sometimes dark gray). The would sell better than the ones with 90% blue! We'd get lots of between 20 and 100 guns. We sold them in the big Tulsa gun show, lots of them to out of town dealers. We would also go together on lots of guns in Police auctions (generally Tulsa county). They sold them in lots of 25. Out of the 25, there would be 5-10 cheap, lousy .25 ACP's and RG revolvers, about 10 medium prices guns, and about 5 excellent ones. I usually let the pawn shop owner do the bidding because he was so good at knowing the price he could sell them for, and we'd bid anywhere from 40 to 60% of the aggregate sell price. He was a great guy to know, and man did he make the money!

POF

POF makes some excellent guns/uppers.....very pricey though, and I haven't seen an inexpensive piston-AR/upper that I'd trust. Their use of NP3 is a real plus to me....I've had nothing but really great experiences with the NP3 finish and if were building any custom social or hunting gun that's how it'd be dressed.

The POF however runs a standard M16 stock/recoil setup, whereas the pic above shows a side-folder with no rear tube.

POFand LWRCI are the ones I'd look at. Wayyy too rich for my blood though. My direct-gas AR does fine, and I don't have 1k-2k to spend anyways. I've heard good and bad about the Robinson setup, and I don't have any experience with Z-M, DSA, etc.

POF

I have been looking at them as well,the 415 in 5.56,a bit high priced but what you get ought to be rock solid.I have handled the 308 version and I'm gonna be shooting each hopefully two weeks from now at a manufacturers shoot 'em up.I believe they compare to the SIG 556,only better,price wise.jury's still out.

That 336 thing sounds right, dont know it was a 22, and i had a Ruger single six to go with it..Had the second 22mag cylinder.. The Rifle had a saddle ring, and was just a beautiful piece, i put a Williams peep sight on it, and that puppy was sweet.. I can see why you want one in 357 Chuck..

Lucky i had a big Ruger in 30 Carbine.. Had a Universal rifle in 30 M1 at the time, and somehow talked myself into getting that big Ruger.. Shooting that thing at sundown you could see a ring of fire roll out the bbl, like a battle ship.. Loud, less than accurate (for me anyway) but sure was fun to shoot...
