My Other, Other Hobby "Have To See"

I think most of you can appreciate these pictures. As most of you know I have a lot of hobbies.

One of them is being a gun enthusiast, and gunsmithing.

I have many pistols, and rifles, some of which have been altered "LEGALLY". Here are just a few. Don't mind the messy table.

The first is my 300 yrd. plinker. A Marlin Model 60. It is very versatile, love it for groundhogs, and stray cats.




Next is one of my carry pistols.

Taurus 1911B.
Capacity: 8+1
Calibre: .45ACP
Barrel Length: 5.5 inches
Modifications I have done include:
Trigger pull from 13.5 pounds to 1.75 pounds.
Milspec barrel chrome lined, cold rolled steel was used for greater tolerances. Ambidextrous safety was replaced with a right handed only safety.
Crimson Trace grips were installed. New Tritium Night Sights were also installed. The ejection port was widened to prevent jams.



Very clean barrel. Too bad the picture sucks.


High Standard Crusader Sub-Compact
Capacity: 7+1, or 8+1
Calibre: .45ACP
Barrel Length: 3.5 inches
Modifications:
Trigger pull from 15 pounds, to 2.5 pounds



DPMS AM3 AR-15
Capacity: 20+1, 30+1, or 100+1
Calibre: .223 cal, or .556x45mm (I can use either)
Barrel Length: 16 inches, or 24 inches (not pictured)
Modifications:
6 position carbine stock
Plastic hand guard replaced with Surefire Quad Rail
Vertical hand grip with pressure sensor for laser, or flashlight, which ever is attached.
Drop in trigger grouping, trigger pull at 1.5 pounds
Buffer system replaced with piston system
Aftermarket springs, pistons, pins
Over sized charging handle
Fail Zero carrier group
16 inch barrel is, military grade cold rolled steel chrome lined, and magnetic checked for cracks and such. Red dot, or reflux sights are used
24 inch barrel is, military grade cold rolled steel chrome lined, and magnetic checked for cracks and such. 6-45x50 Leupold scope + Bi-pod are used






More to come in the future. Just have to take the pictures.

I only shoot cats, and dogs if they are feral. I just don't go shooting them for sport, or target practice, that is what my range is for..... We have had wild dogs attack our live stock a few years ago. Killed over 200 chickens, and a few goats. If I see a dog or cat that is not acting normal. Better off all around just to get rid of them so they do not suffer in the long run.

Not me thanks. Obie and George Soros seem to have the ammo supply shut off. Got plenty of hardware lacking in software. Got any exotic .40 Cal S&W laying around?

Mighty pretty and big thanks to Dad for His Service. I had one sorta similar which my Uncle who ran the gas station had took in exchange for a 25 dollar hot check. I got skinned out of it shortly after becoming the proud owner.
