    This is my Smith & Wesson Model 29-2, chambered in .44 Remington Magnum. It was made in 1978 and has a 6.5” barrel. This is the barrel length and model used in the film. The grips were custom made by Keith Brown from black walnut and I could not be happier with the results. .44 Special is very pleasant to shoot in this gun though I have to at least put a few .44 Magnums through it each time I take it out - just for the grin factor.

    I also managed to dig up some original Dade loaders, though they don’t work particularly well without speed loader cut grips. The badge and ID card were necessary purchases, of course.

    Sometimes I take out my model 29 just to admire it. It really is the most beautiful pistol of all time in my opinion. The lines are perfect. Understated elegance and a mater-of-fact pistol. There is no bullshit about it. You can keep your Colt Snakes. As far as double actions go, I'll take a classic Smith & Wesson over anything else.

    I got the Dirty Harry collection from Amazon today and I can't wait to watch the 4 it came with.

     I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, i kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, punk?

    Make sure the barrel looks good, I've heard that the sky imports stamp machine was a little over enthusiastic and bent some of the barrels on their imports, I'd say this is closer to the lower end of the price scale

    Winchester M1 Carbine that has been neglected (dusty, not shot or oiled in a long while). Sky / Arlington VA. Import markings. No rust or cracking in the stock. Looking to help an elderly gentleman sell to help keep him from going homeless, but need a good idea of value (anyone else I would offer $400 and be done). Any help on value would be appreciated. I can provide more pictures later upon request.

    Assuming its mechanically in good shape, 750 is a fair offer. Its seen a rebuild after the war. Those higher priced rifles are typically free of import marks and often in original condition.

    Make sure the barrel didn't get stamped too hard. Blue Sky imports were somewhat notorious for deforming the bore with their import stamps.

    This is the first handgun I bought. It has a Wilson combat commander extended beavertail, hammer, and trigger. The cerakote coatings are cobalt on the slide and gunmetal grey on the frame. I know most of you aren't a fan of recover grips, but its not too uncomfortable and i enjoy having a laser sight because I'm a nightshift worker at the local county jail. All in all, it's my 2nd favorite gun in my arsenal.

    This is my Arsenal 107FR. It originally had a triangle stock but I wasn't a fan of the lack of cheek weld so I put some plum furniture that I got from kvar on it. The mount I have on it is an Arsenal SM13 and the red dot is a Bushnell Trophy TRS-25. I know a lot of people have had coating issues on the barrel, but mine hasn't had any bubbling issues after several mag dumps.

Surplus Tokarev ammo, is this normal?

    5 points Apr 16,2019, 1:45pm

    The buddy of mine that I bought this gun from also gave me a few hundred rounds of some Polish surplus 7.62 x.25 ammo to go with It. I remember him telling me not to bother saving the brass because it was crap, he's also my reloader I guess my teacher for reloading LOL. I go shoot up all my ammo and take the brass to his house and he lets me reload it with his reloading bench and powder etc and I get it all for a very good price. But I noticed that every single round fired from my Tokarev split the casing like this, I put about 100rds through it, and every single one ejected looking like this. Doesn't seem to have hurt the gun any.

  • alphawhiskey189

    Shouldn’t be but it is, especially with surplus ammo. I had a large batch of mid-50’s .303 from Pakistan. The case necks hadn’t been annealed well/at all and I’m pretty sure that the storage conditions were equally sketchy. As a result, I was getting a lot of split necks and ruptured cases.

    I was shooting them in a No 4 Mk 1 Enfield, so I wasn’t overly concerned for my safety but I did notice serious accuracy issues.

    Edit: I’d be hesitant to keep shooting it through a semi-auto. The issue is that you may experience a lot of gas blow back or the case may rupture during extraction.

  • jmike3543
    1 points Apr 16,2019, 4:57pm

    Not normal but common with that ammo. It’s not good and I would avoid shooting that ammo if you can but it’s not that dangerous all things considered.

    If it's at the base, yes, but at the neck, no big deal, just throw it away.
