Wow, a slow bag day this year. Either all the BAG Day participants have joined Lemur King in boycotting me, or our 5 readers are going to be woefully underarmed when the Russians invade.
So on to BAG Day loot.
Russ from Winterset decided to build a fine AR for BAG Day, a fine sentiment. I might have to do that for next year.
We’ll let Russ describe it
The forend is free-floated, the barrel is chrome lined, the buttstock is a MagPul MOE and the sights are cheapo folding ones I bought at a gunshow. The rifle is what they call a “dissipator”, which marries up a carbine length barrel with a rifle length forend & gas system….The single point sling I bought from AIM online completes the package.
Very nice. But I am a little afraid of that huge barrel shroud (the shoulder thing that goes up)
Next, an extra fine Bisley single action .45LC convertible to .45ACP. That’s awesome. I’m pretty jealous about that.
Did I mention I’m jealous?
Next we have a possible BAG Day acquisition that Russ is looking to sell
A Maadi AKM (not to be confused with a Mahdi AKM, I don’t think he’s planning on taking over Arrakis)
Not a bad gun to buy, you’ll have to talk to him about price, maybe put your name and addy in the comments if you’re interested. The only problem is that it only comes with 1,100 rounds of ammo (I call that “Wednesday”) and 20 mags (8@20 rounds, 7@30 and a few others). That’s a nice shooting iron. Especially since commie 7.62X39 is cheap and easy to buy and that’ll eat whatever you feed it.
Now to my purchase. I couldn’t get a firearm this year. I spent my bag day money on my car and moving my license and reg to AZ, so I got some ammo and used it to make some previous BAG Day purchases go “Booooom!”
I can’t believe how expensive .357 mag ammo is these days. At least .40 S&W is cheap and that’s my “making sure I can still aim a pistol” gun, so I have that going for me.
If anybody still wants to play along, I’ll update this post as necessary and DPUD is planning on adding a late edition this week, so let me or him know and we can get you in that post.
Until next year, keep your ammo dry and your guns clean.
