  1. Identify this choke?

    Acquired a 1900-made Winchester 1897 in 12 gauge, and it appears it's been threaded for choke tubes. I took the one in the barrel out and it reads simply, "STEEL SHOT 2C.A." Here's two pictures: Does anyone have insight on which manufacturer this might be? Perhaps Carlson's, or Colonial? My...
  2. WTB S&W 645

    Looking for a Smith and Wesson 645. NH resident with P&R, open to FFL transfer or Face to Face. PM here, thanks.
  3. Biden Magazine/Rifle NFA Tax Stamp Budget

    Editing this since some people seem to have poor reading comprehension: The point of this thread is not "will you comply" or "how will a proposed ban work, etc., etc." It's just a budgeting game to see if you had to choose between multiple rifles and fewer magazines or fewer rifles with more...
  4. FFL Burgled in Merrimack County, NH

    Anyone else get this email? ATF FFL ALERT - FFL BURGLARY - Merrimack County , NH (statewide) "This is an important message from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. A Federal firearms licensee in Merrimack County, NH has experienced a Burglary in which the suspect(s) made...
  5. Raymond / Country Pond / Pinnacle / Chester ?

    Looking for a club in Southern NH, starting 2021 is fine although sooner is always better. I've heard great things about Londonderry and would love to see about joining, but they've closed their waitlist and currently "there is no path to membership" there (obviously if anyone's an insider, PM...
  6. GB Non-paying buyer suggestions

    I've bought several firearms off GunBroker without issue. Decided to sell one for the first time last week. About 11 hours before the end of the auction, I got a message from one guy asking me if I'd end the auction and sell it to him for $875 shipped (auction was at $765 at the time). I did...
  7. Halbek Devices

    DSA has recently started selling limited batches of the Rhodesian Halbek device. These are originals, not reproductions. I had basically written off getting one as they don't pop up very often and the FAL Files has been littered with "WTB" postings for as long as I've poked around there. I...
  8. VP9sk impressions

    Who has one? What do you like about it, or not like about it? I have fired the full-sized VP9 and I am looking for a carry gun to replace my G19 I sold. I had thought about the CZ PCR, but I think the VP9sk might suit me better as I am left-handed and I like the paddle mag release and the...
  9. That's Real NATO - my R1 FAL clone

    As some of you may have seen or recalled, back in the spring I posted a thread on 7.62 NATO / 308 rifle opinions and options. At that time I was pretty set on a FAL, and was basically looking for a "talk me out of it" type discussion. As a result of that thread, I had the opportunity to try @C...
  10. Accurate Powder Recall

    Anyone else see this? I have a 1 lb can left of AA 2495. I bought four lbs of Accurate in total during a free hazmat sale (three 2495 and one 2520) and it's the only one I have left. I emailed customer service and they sent me a form to fill out. They are offering a $35 refund for 1lb jugs--I...
  11. Model 15 / Model 10 cylinder stuck

    Figured I'd ask the NES braintrust before resigning myself to going to a smith. On the last cylinder of the range trip yesterday (naturally), the cylinder on my S&W Model 15 (which is basically a Model 10 with adjustable sights, for reference) will not open. The cylinder can wiggle a little...
  12. Pelosi announces formal Trump impeachment inquiry

    Ooh boy. Might've missed another thread about it, hopefully not a dupe. Pelosi expected to announce formal impeachment inquiry against Trump at 5 pm ET "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is expected to announce the formalization of an impeachment inquiry into President Trump when she...
  13. Pistol with Threaded barrel & "shroud"

    Curious about whether this pistol would be MA OK with regards to the AWB. Ruger® Mark IV™ 22/45™ Lite Rimfire Pistol Model 43924 Specifically, if it violates: (ii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer; (iii) a shroud that...
  14. Bakelite AK47 bayonet

    Vendor has some bakelite AK47 bayonets for $99 shipped. Maybe not super useful for those of you in the PRM unless you have a pre-ban AK, but I am planning to pick one up: Feel free to PM me if you want the vendor info (I'm assuming we're not supposed to post them, although this isn't really a...
  15. Co-owning 80% tools

    Has there been anything clear cut or definitive in terms of guidance or ruling for co-owning/sharing/loaning 80% completion tools (jig/router, etc.)? A few points to frame the discussion: - This would be in a non-AWB state where all parties are non-PP, can own firearms legally, etc. - There...
  16. PSA on New Shooters

    A couple weeks ago I met a former coworker for lunch. He mentioned he was in the process of moving from MA to NH and was looking forward to having a little more freedom and that there were some things he was planning to get into once he completed his move. Among the things he listed was...
  17. 7.62x51 / 308 Semi-auto options

    I've been thinking it might be wise to pickup a 7.62x51 / 308 semi-auto rifle, especially with the possibility of a new AWB in the next 1-4 years. However, I am not particularly enamored with any of the options except perhaps the FAL (presumably DSA). What options might I be missing? Criteria...
  18. NH smith for AK muzzle?

    Anyone have a recommendation on a smith in NH (pref southern NH) to un-Massify two AK muzzles? One is silver soldered with the traditional slant brake and the other has a welded muzzle nut. Since I've moved to NH I don't see the point in keeping them compliant and figured I'd put a muzzle...
  19. K Frame / Model 15 IWB holster recommendations

    I have a 4'' Model 15 K Frame on the way, and I am looking for anyone's recommendations on a good IWB holster for it. The last few threads relevant to the topic appear to be over two years old. The kicker is that I am left-handed as well. Currently when going waist (vs. pocket which I do...
  20. They Shall Not Grow Old
