  3. 642 Refinishing

    The S&W 642 is getting a little worse for the wear. I just finished detail stripping it tonight... the only parts still attached to the frame are the barrel (no way in hell I'm trying to remove that) and the firing pin bushing (because I can't figure out how to remove it). Everything is...
  4. Pre ban AR lower, need some opinions

    I currently own a pre ban Colt Sporter lower receiver. Nice to have, but the sear block and grey color are getting on my nerves. Most of my BCGs are M16 profile, and swapping hardware around every time I decide to try a new upper is a royal pain. Not to mention that the lower not matching the...
  5. Modern Polymer 9mm Service Pistols

    My OCD is flaring up. [wink] I'm compiling a list of all polymer 9mm full-size service pistols in current production. I want to stick with full-size "duty" versions of each, as opposed to compact models geared toward concealed carry or extended size models geared toward competition. Each...
  6. My Google-Fu is weak today

    Sorry to make a whole new thread for this, but I'm having terrible luck finding an online article that was mentioned on NES a while ago. IIRC, the article reported an incident involving a female police officer that pulled over a cruiser and exited the vehicle to engage a perpetrator. The...
  7. 1911 Refinishing Advice

    Picked up one of the "Billboard" style stainless S&W 1911s recently for $550. The previous owner (who we shall aptly name "Bubba") had apparently decided he wanted a nice shiny gun and took a Dremel to the slide. To accomplish this, he first removed the sights... with a brick, as far as I can...
  8. Anybody want an AR-15 lower? It's being given away...

    I've got an AR-15 lower receiver up for grabs in the NES Member Karma section. There are some stipulations, but it's worth a look. Make sure you're a Green member, and click here for details. EDIT: Karma is now closed, winner chosen, and receiver delivered. Thanks to all who participated!
  9. Trauma Kit Critique

    My small kit for the house. I have more supplies available in reserve to replenish as needed. Being that this is a home kit, emergency blankets and potable water are in ample supply nearby. This is small, self-contained in a zippered container (about 9"x 6", 3" deep), and easy for my wife and...
  10. Remington 870 Short Stock

    After spending some time with a standard stock on my 870, I'd like to find something with a pistol grip and a shorter length of pull. I've seen quite a few collapsible stock sets, and the design of the Mesa Tactical Urbino seems very good. As a point of reference, I generally like to use an AR...
  11. Eastern Security Safes?

    I've drummed up quite a few old posts on NES that praise Eastern Security Safe for their products and customer service. I stopped by the tent sale in West Springfield and browsed through their inventory. I ended up dropping a deposit on one of their branded "ESS" model safes, the ESS-50. I...
  12. Northeast Shooters Engraved AR-15 Lower Receivers from Yankee Hill Machine

    Yankee Hill Machine of Florence, MA is engraving a run of AR-15 lower receivers with the logo of this website. The base price for these receivers is under $100 before dealer transfer fees. Have a look at the logo (and my sub-par photography skills): Anyone who might be interested in...
  13. Suppressor-compatible, MA-legal compensators?

    I started to hi-jack another thread with this question, but let's start a new thread instead... I'll probably register my 2012 NES lower as an SBR. Should I ever move out of state to a more gun-friendly location, it would be great if I could attach a suppressor to it without destroying the...
  14. Reputation question

    As I understand it, it is only possible to view your most recent reputation points and not older ones. As I recall, old Reputation comments aren't deleted, they just are not accessible. Is there any chance of having a Reputation archive in the future? It would be neat to see Rep comments from...
  15. The things you overhear...

    Running errands this afternoon, I find myself in a waiting room with a few other folks. A woman brings up in conversation that she's learning to shoot at Smith & Wesson and will be applying for her permit shortly. A gentleman chimes in that she should make sure to put down "Target and Hunting"...
  16. What's happened to Auto Sport Distributors in Agawam?

    I'll call their number now and again, but no-one has picked up in months. Haven't driven over there, though. I know Walt's getting on a bit and spent quite a bit of time out of the shop last year. Are they now permanently closed?
  17. Anyone using a SuperTuck for a Glock?

    I'm curious if the SuperTuck for the full-size Glocks can be effectively used with the sub-compact variants (i.e. holster for a G17 used with a G26). Anyone used more than one pistol on these holsters?
  18. Galil/Golani Rifles

    Hello, I'd like to learn more about the Galil rifle. I've found information on the basic specs (5.56, AK-based, etc.), but I'm a bit confused over what makes it a Galil. For example, would an early semi-auto version imported by Action Arms be considered a Galil, or would that be a Golani...
  19. Old long guns in need of serious cleaning! Update!!!

    Update, 2/10: The blued shotgun was easy enough to fix. 000 steel wool and gun oil as many recommended took care of the rust spots, and a bit of blue touch-up is preserving the metal nicely. However, the old Remington side by side 12-gauge is proving more difficult. The barrel is unblued...
  20. S&W Academy?

    I'm local to S&W and looking for my first handgun training course. I'm considering S&W's Academy, but their "Handgun Fundamentals" course is a pre-req for most of their other classes. Anyone have experience with Smith's training? Or recommendations for certification that would allow me to...
