Mainly treadmills. :P

Really though, there are too many to mention. Mosins, Mausers, Garands, Eastern Bloc pistols, muskets, etc...


I prefer Precor.... :P

Is there a linky somewhere's that affiliates this with cost?

Does someone mind pointing me in a direction of what types of relic firearms are available for purchase with a CR?

.30-06 has to be the most available round in the US for high powered rifles (possibly .30-30)

It can be found cheap and reloading supplies abound.

These Garands don't have magazines that can hold multiple rounds? Uh... really?

i'll throw this out for the more paranoid of our group. i've read in a couple of places where soldiers in ww2 were able to figure out how to modify the m1 carbine to shoot full auto. allegedly, buck compton, the lieutenant of band of brothers fame, had one such. i don't think that it can be modified to be selective, like an m-16 or an m-4 is.

do i know what the mod is? nope. i suspect google might be your friend here.

There are mods to change the AK-47 that you can buy in much of the country to change it (back) to full auto too, I'm pretty sure. A friend of mine had a crank that you attached to any gun to turn it into something of an auto weapon (although you could jam it by cranking too fast).

That's 'go to jail' talk...
If you want to waste ammo you can buy a stock that allows you to bump fire your weapon safely and accurately.

keep in mind Garands shoot 15o grain commercial .30-06 ok

Most commercial 30.06 have higher pressures than the M1 was designed for. If shooting modern commercial 30.06 I'd get an adjustable gas plug.

didn't know that, never shot a Garand , yet

I had thought that SAAMI .30-06 pressures were limited to 50,000 CUP for the Springfield and Garand? but apparently M2 ball is 48,000

and being upwards of 60 years old I'll err on the side of caution
