  1. That's one beautiful M60. Last year I have seen friend's LCT M60 and "wow" too. That gun is a steel beast. Was considering to get one, but my priorities have changed a bit and lost a lot from my "gun collecting interest".

    Nevertheless this became my favourite gun of the last 13 months. It's "heavily upgraded" with period correct flashlight and sling.

    Was lucky to buy the last in Czech for myself and last full auto in Europe (it seems) from Austria for my brother.

    - M14 w/ grenade launcher
    - M14A1
    - M14 in replacement birch stock

  4. Tried to make an art picture of my Guarder MEU SOC, Inokatsu M1911A1 and Pi July's M1911. My skills suck

    But main point is the question. Is there perhaps any Marui/KJ compatible slide & frame kit for Remington Rand, Ithaca or US&S M1911 at all?

  5. Quite a difficult task to source the parts. I was not expecting to even get some of them.

    Luckily and by coincidence I was able to get the most unique once at military show in Germany before covid has closed everything.

  6. Difficult to say, I like all three of them - Shadow 2, 1 and P09. Good shooters, reliable and mag options (GG and CO2) without upgrade needed.

    Shadows are of course heavier than P09. Nevertheless if should choose just one - Shadow 2.

    But P09 is a bit more military if that plays a role for you.

  9. I had no idea that UHC has made guns for MGC until I have found this pistol few months ago.

    I remember my brother used to have UHC's manual M1911A1 more than 20 years ago. As I remember it was quite hard hitting compared to my Academy M16A1 or pair of M1911 Commanders, which I don't remember the origin of.

  10. Let's go on with this thread here, too

    One of the very few non-airsoft modelguns in the collection:
    Shoei FG42 late version. If you ever get the opportunity to get your hands on one of these, take it! They re superbly built and incredibly nice collector's pieces.
    Had 2 of them for a while, the one without scope is sold by now.
    The one with scope has a very rare real ZF4 with even rarer, highly professionally reproduced Krieghoff mount rings made of steel.

    Hohoho, supernice!!! One of my favourite guns.

  11. So my TM/Guarder P226 is finished, until the few remaining inner parts and grips come. I have to say I am really pleased with the semi-result, the look and performance on MAPP are just great.

  12. Out of curiosity: Why have you sold the NE Sten already?


    It was a beautiful piece, shooting quite well, but overall useless for my collection and more importantly I was in a quick need of money for our dogs operation...the most expensive toys ... of my wife, thus mine :-D
