Looks like an A5....are they related?
Yes, they are the same.

My dad had one in 12 gauge that I inherited. I traded it and some other firearms for some other firearms. Last I saw the guy had cut it down, did a crude refinish on it and was trying to sell it as a military variant. As if a good collector wouldn't know the difference - but there is always somebody trying to make a quick buck off the unwary.

I had thought to cut it down too, but not to sell it as something it wasn't. I decided to just get rid of it.

I feel sorry for your shoulder. I had an old Stevens (I think it was) or similar single barrel shotgun with plastic furniture. Shot some duck loads through it. Gave it to my SIL.

Who needs a muzzle brake to reduce recoil on a heavy .243? All it does is annoy the poor bastards on either side of the shooter at the range.

This ain't a range gun... And even if it was, My ranges are vacant 97% of the time.

The brake helps with being able to see the target(s) get all explodey...

I can do that with my .220 Swift. I just don't blink when it goes off. A 50 grainer at 3850 is awful spectacular. Pasture poodle heads go 10 feet straight up.

Here's an iPhone photo of the new one.

Oops...need one without serial number....sigh.

That does not work either. Crap....try again.



It will be interesting to see if it shoots up to some of the reviews.

I have always wanted to try that round...being a fan of little bullets...execpt the 223 (that will piss some people off, actually I don't think it is the round but the black rifle group of people FOR THE MOST PART they are a bunch of mouth breathers that will do something stupid with a gun) I really would like to find something in that round for just that reason. I have got to do one P-dog hunt....if you can call it a hunt...them things are stupid...they just stand there and look at what is left of their buddy.....hay Bob, hay Mike whats up....crack...hay Mike what just happend to Bob....hay Mike where did your head go...is it over there....is it over there...no...hmm...Hi St. Peter....Hi Mike, Hi Bob.

I've always wondered...why the concern about anyone seeing the serial number?

It's like showing a license plate, why show it? Once the unique identifer is in the public sphere one has no control over what happens with that information. But let's spitball for a moment, once a person has the model, caliber, serial number, etc. (all available in the picture), then what's to prevent a malicious person from using that information to call the firearm in stolen--and, oh, I know who has it! Is it likely? Meh. Is it impossible to imagine the scenerio? No. But...

For those that don't care, go on with your bad selves.

For those that do care, who cares if it's "tinfoil hat" or not, what's it hurt?

Yeah, I never got the license plate thing, either. If someone reported a gun as stolen and it was not, I would think that the person who made such a report would be in a heap of trouble. Regarding the license plate thing, don't people see your plate when you're out and about? What's the difference between that and seeing it in a photo?

Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter to me whether someone hides a serial number or a license plate...like I said, I just wondered what the paranoia was all about.

I keep my license plate in my back pack so no one can see it while I'm riding. I only show it to officers when I get pulled over, which seems to be all the time, for riding without a plate

Guys, was looking for some feedback here. I've got a nice four inch barrel model 28 with the original wood grips (and some oversized pachmayers). It is big, heavy, hard to conceal, but a beautiful gun and a beautiful shooter. It was my first handgun so I have some sentimental attachment, but I'm not really that sentimental ... so I am considering trading it for something that I would use more, maybe a Glock in .40.

Am I being silly? Will it continue to appreciate and I am a fool for even considering selling it? Just looking for some feedback. Feel free to talk me off the ledge or flame away as I am aware that advice is worth what you pay for it
