Remington 1875 Factory Blem?

Long story very short. We are not 100% sure what we are looking at here. Is the variation shown in these revolvers normal or a known change?  Or..perhaps this is a factory blem / parts gun that was assembled by Remington during a bankruptcy period?  Is this revolver a one off?  Is it more valuable because of the variation?  Or…are …

POTD – Glock 22P (Red Glock)

After I did a video showing some training guns in the armory, some expressed an interest in seeing up close photos of the Glock 22P “pistol”.  P stands for practice. Legally this is a firearm and is transferred as such. But as it’s configured here, it CANNOT be made to fire. Looking closely at the pics will explain why.    …

Australian Chassis Hack

So Bob from Australia reached out a while back and wanted to tell me about his custom “Blaser Tactical 2 Like” chassis. It seems he like the LRS/TAC2 ergonomics so much, he went out and simply made his own. I don’t know what I was expecting to see when I opened the images, but I can say with zero hesitation …

Steyr GB Pistol

Been looking for one of these for quite a while, but the prices on the auction sites never seemed appropriate to what their real worth is.  And it took a while, but my persistence paid off. Found one of these sitting in a gun store on the East Coast. Priced cheaper than a new Glock.  This video is just a …

M16A1 Magazines

Don’t see these everyday. At least I don’t. Looks to me like original M16A1 style magazines.  I think? Maybe? Possibly? What say you? I have no idea if these are good prices or not? But I can’t help but wonder if one day these prices will go sky-high in value like the original Vietnam era M16A1 rifles have? Back in …

FBI Glock 17PM

So…have you ever seen a factory original Glock pistol that is worth $4000? How about one that is not even a functioning firearm? Well that is what we have here.  For those who are not aware, Glock offers a series of training Glocks to LE agencies. These are not prohibited from being owned by the public, it’s just they are …

Shotguns of The World

Been trying to consolidate weapons “types” in The Armory. Here is the small shotgun section. Not against shotguns, it’s just that we are pretty picky concerning the genera. Many shotguns are duplicates of other designs. Almost exactly.  In this pic we see Russian, Italian, American Japanese and Belgian scatterguns.    Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

7.5 Swiss Estate Ammo

Some friends were helping a family out with the management of a large firearms estate. Word came down that the owners would allow us to buy some ammo before it went public.  Obviously I had a few calibers in mind. Mostly not standard stuff. BTW…when I use the phrase “non-standard” ammo, I am referring to non-NATO calibers.  When word came …

Replacement Luger Grips 

So…those replacement Luger grips from SARCO are done. FYI…”minor fitting” probably didn’t mean what you think it means. But it’s a good product and is easy to fit once you understand the collision points.    Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”
