Having multiple guns (I'm quite sure that there are other people like this lurking around, maybe we should have meetings?), I roam various forums on the Net. Couldn't help to notice that, just like all guns are not equals, gun nuts do show some marked differences. HK guy: - Just found an original grip screw, late 1973, serial XTRM234987-J, a steal at $1,799.99! Got lucky, there were only 46 other bidders. 1911 guy: - A crate of 1942 USGI magazines, still in the wrapper, $50.00 or will trade for 3 lbs of misc take-off parts HK guy: - Which way should I turn the old grip screw to take it out? HK crowd (yelling): - DON'T!!!!! DON'T TOUCH!!! Send your P16.3 to Grumblestickfluger!!! A grip screw? You want to change a grip screw by yourself??? Moderators, please BAN! 1911 guy: - Am considering changing the hammer pin 1911 crowd: - Since you're at it, check the engagement of the sear and hammer, you can get a new sear for cheap from (list of 32 different sellers/manufacturers follows), but you could as well make one from an old engine bolt, here are the original JMB drawings, 1915 revision.

AK guy: - Got a shoebox with some torch-cut parts, am sure there is a Russian trunnion in there, and a Romanian trigger group, also seen what looks like a Bulgarian gas block, and some parts still too rusted to tell, what you guys think? AK crowd: - Wow!!! That's an original 1960 Izhevsk trunnion! Taken off a dead goon in a rice paddy in South-Western Screwistan by the great-grand dad of Mad Fox Mike when he was still a Lieutenant! Man, I'm drooling... Still AK crowd: - Now, you gonna need a hammer and the biggest trailer jack you can find at the scrapyard... SKS guy: - Found this Chinese SKS in the attic, my uncle Bob bought it at the hardware for $67.00 on his way back from high school. Most of the rust is mild, pitting is not very deep. What plastic stock would fit? SKS crowd: - Plastic??? Bubba Alert! Bubba Alert! They only imported 37 million of these, you're gonna destroy its COLLECTOR VALUE!!!
