What Were The Last Things That You Bought (Firearm Related)?

Recommended Posts

Couple Pearce grips and a few mags for the XD9SC and XD45SC.  Also sending XD9SC slide to have TFO sights installed.  Will be a real treat for the eyes.

Another Saiga .223 that I helped a buddy convert a couple of years ago to his liking. He was laid off from his second job (meaning he was working two jobs at the same time). I paid more than the rifle is worth, but I look at it as an investment for his family's future.

The only catch is I offered to hold on to the rifle and let him buy it back at the same price. I would much rather he own it and enjoy it than have another Saiga in the safe. Hopefully, things will turn around for him and he can buy it back. If not, I will probably gift it back to him in the future anyway. Can't stand to see someone let go of something they value to make ends meet when they are working their tail off already.(1John 3:16-19)

Still his in my mind, but couldn't resist having a little fun with parts I had lying around:

Ammo..

 

And an NDM-86 .308 magazine from a pawn shop that was marked as a Saiga .308 mag. Best $35 I ever spent... Seriously look up the cost for an NDM-86 .308 magazine.

Magazine catch for the Cobray M 11/9.  The superglue gave out after several years.  Hopefully, the hammer will last; the original shattered like it was made from pig iron.

That looks good, nice work. You gotta do it with a Tapco slab side tho.

Just ordered an el cheapo the point sling that closest matched what I've seen on these 'Contrator' WASRs.

Fun stuff in mail yesterday and today.  Very bright TFO's on the XD9SC and TTGunLeather pancake holster with shark trim, horizontal mag holder and shark belt for the XD45SC Mod 2.

Kreb's SIG556 extended safety lever.

What a difference! Makes it a lot more AR-like ergonomics.

(With short original one I had to twist my wrist to reach it, even though my paws are rather "long").

Sorry about crappy pictures: I rather shoot my guns than photograph 'em :)

TFO is a God sent improvement. Love mine (on XDs). Day or night, especially in rapid transitions: virtually same brightness. Nice rig and gear!

 

A word of caution: after ~650 round with TFO my front sight broke and fell off on (thank God, what appears to be) the last round of qual match. I haven't noticed the hole in the front sight until next morning (failed to perform detailed post-shooting gear inspection: shame on me). Checked online: it appears to happening around.

Contacted Tru-Glo, and got warranty RMA right away. Customer Service was excellent. Had to pay for shipping, plus $12 for return shipping, but turnaround was surprisingly quick: something like 3 working days. Brand new sight, BTW.

I removed failed sight myself (with push tool), but later found out that you can send entire slide over, and they will swap and zero the sight for you.

Hope won't happen to you, but just in case...

The Krebs lever and the Ergo grip made all the difference for me.

Got a Lucid M7 mount for $17, gonna get some offset irons off Amazon for $17, and a forward assist. That will finish off my last two ARs.

 

Next paycheck, slings for everything. Then time to start looking for a 308.

I was gifted a Cabela's .22 rimfire specific 3x9x40 scope and a 325 box of Federal target grade ammo for Father's Day. The scope is mounted and zeroed already on my Henry.

The last gun I bought was this Finn M28/30 Mosin. Need to clean the grease out, and hopefully get to shoot it in a few weeks.
