One week in and up to 3 so far. Having a pretty good time. Then again my birthday was Monday so somebody had to buy me what I wanted. haha The Grand Power Stribog came in on Tuesday and took it out yesterday and it just shred through rounds right out the box. Didn't even need to zero threw the dot on it from my other gun and it was shooting 2ish inches low at 50 yards but had zero shift in windage. Burned through half a case of federal 115/124gr and then two 50ct boxes of Federal 150gr HST HP. Of which one was just dumping the rounds to see if it choked. Flawless. If that continues I'll have nothing bad to say about this gun.
I don't like shooting my original 210 much so I also got a target 210. Would have preferred getting a standard model, but there's always an excuse to get another later. Thing prints like you would expect. Had fun ringing steel out to 100 with it. Then lastly a model P14 Eddystone .303. Still matching only thing missing is the unit disc was plugged. But didn't pay much for it, so there is that.

I picked up a Springfield Hellcat. I like this pistol, I quickly dumped 100 rounds down the range at the shop and it was flawless. It weighs in at 678 grams vs my Sig P365 at 662 grams. Remember the Sig is 12+1 and the Hellcat is 13+1. Additionally the Hellcat has 14 rounds of Corbon vs 13 rounds of the 365 9mm. I didn’t check the grain differences. The trigger isn’t shit but it’s not great either. It’s fine for a carry gun but I will watch for Apex or a better aftermarket trigger. I really like the sights and the ergos suit me nicely. I may like the fit better than my Sig 365. I was able to figure out how to grip it without the Grip Zone, took a minute but I’m smartish.

Here is it with a 458 Lott for reference.

Gartman Arms put this on the shelf at 11:00 today. I called about something unrelated at 11:29 and the guys were excited to share that their stock of ONE came in, ordered after the January 2018 SHOT Show. TS12, an Israeli 15+1 12-gauge FREIGHT TRAIN!

I asked when another would be in stock and they just laughed. Apparently the only Tavor 7 they ever received was also gone same-day about 3 months ago.

A pair of early Obendorf Mauser K98s. S/42G early import, and S/42 1936 RC. The G is in a correct type flat butt tiger stripe walnut WaA4 bSw stock. The G bolt is early Weimar Obendorf and matches itself. The trigger guard, floor plate, and follower are Erma and match each other. The S/42 is a straight up RC in "original" condition; blue black refinished metal, flaking shellac, and EP'd to match. A nice bonus on this one is that it sits in a mismatched but correct Obendorf Weimar walnut flat butt plate stock. I added the cleaning rods and Israeli slings. They will become loaners 5 and 6 for my WW2 group. With some scrubbing and foamy bore cleaner, the bores turned out OK.
