I figured it was time we needed a separate thread for the gun chat.

Post up Pics, Builds, Deals, Gun related issues and questions.

I was given a shotgun the other day from a friend.

I will be restoring it, should be a fun project.

Info:

Winchester Model 37 16 Gauge Shot gun.
Date: unknown, they did not use serial numbers so its hard to get an exact date. Produced between 1936-1964.






The stock has been cracked for years. He told me he taped it up a long time ago. When I pulled the tape off the stock fell into a few pieces. They are clean breaks, so It shouldn't be too difficult to put back together.





I almost have it completely stripped except the hammer and trigger, I don't have a punch small enough to get the pins out. I plan on having it professionally Re-Blued and re finishing the original stock and for end myself.

Aww shiz.. he went there.

I havent shot the nitro mag yet dave bit I did get my 3.5" shells in today. Got my #6 turkey shot and 00 buck.
As far as recent gun mods... I added a laser to the forward rail on the shotgun and set it to about 15 yards.
Also I replace the grips on the sp101 with houge grips. Its gives alot better feel.

Should be a nice project Dave.

Call me weird, but I really enjoy older guns. There's something about real wood, and great craftsmanship that is hard to find now-a-days.

Went to York gun show over the weekend. I picked up a few AR mags A little bit of ammo, some USGI parts for the M14, extractor, trigger and hammer pins. Good show, they had some great prices on firearms.

Spent a couple of hours cleaning and oiling the sticks today.

I usually use Bore Snakes but broke out the brushes to give them a good cleaning, Im pretty impressed with the Snakes there was very little residue left in them.

Nice Chad! I would like to get a G27 Gen4.

Just picked up a new gas lock for the Socom. I changed the rear sight to a USGI calibrated in yards and now Its shooting about 6" high at 100 yards with the rear sight bottomed out. The new gas lock will bring up the front sight post, get it on target, allow me to use standard front sights and its threaded which allows me to change muzzle devices / flash hiders.
