^^ That's one on my bucket list... ^^
I could flog myself for not letting the old guy that owned it know how much I liked it and he should put me in his will.
It's so cool. The butt-stock is more rare than the gun. The entire gun fits inside it as a carry case.
Sure it's a NFA item the minute you click the stock on it, but hey, it only takes a second to click it off.
The owner died unexpectedly about a year later.
His wife probably got $50 from a pawn shop for it because "it's hard to find ammo for".
Lost forever.... At least I got a picture of it.
...and lots of shiny brass.
It is actually a Glock holster. Got it for $5 or something. Never have actually used it.
I figured it was a Glock polymer holster...
Never seen one with a retention strap....
BTW...What Model Glock is that ?!
Just a regular old Gen 4 G17. With the large back strap added. It is currently being used as my EDC till the 19X is paid off, then it will most likely step aside. I don’t carry it in that holster though.
My new Blackhawk is back from Ruger.
I fixed the horrible grip - to - grip frame fitment by 'fitting' a new set that was actually made for the human hand...
The seller calls them aged oak laminate. Much wider than what Ruger sent it out with, feels more like the early New Model Blackhawks.
You said any gun
.300 BO pistol.
That is soooo nasty.... I LIIIIKE IT!
(and it's not a 22)
Some of my Ruger Single Action Revolver collection (Descriptions Below Picture):
The Blackhawk at the far right is the 5.5" Barrel .45 Colt and .45 AUTO Convertible.
The Super Blackhawk is second from right, and is the 5.5" Barrel .44 Magnum.
The Blackhawk in the center is the 6.5" Barrel 10MM AUTO and .40 S&W Convertible.
The Blackhawk second from the left is the 5.5" Barrel .357 Magnum and 9MM Convertible.
The Ruger Single Six 6.5" Barrel .22LR and .22WMR Convertible is on the far left.
The three Blackhawk Convertibles were Lipseys Exclusives.
Wow! Nice Collection. Looks like you got Blackhawks covered.
KINDA JEALOUS OVER HERE . . . . .
Next week, I'll see about posting pics of the Ruger Vaquero (Originals) collection.
My O.O.W. Browning 1919A4, 7.62x 51, semi-auto with custom anti-aircraft tripod and M122A1 tripod.
Hahaha, now that's a gun!
Will it shoot a 308 rd ?
Yes, although 7.62 x 51s are preferred. The original U.S. guns were in .30-06. The Israelis championed the 7.62 x 51 / .308 versions which is where the 7.62 / 308 links come from nowadays.
From Wikipedia -
" The United States Navy also converted many to 7.62mm NATO, and designated them Mk 21 Mod 0; they were commonly used on river craft in the 1960s and 1970s in Vietnam. Many NATO countries also converted their examples to 7.62, and these remained in service well into the 1990s, as well as up to the present day in some countries."
"From the 1960s until the 1990s, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) used ground tripod and vehicle-mounted M1919A4 guns converted to 7.62 mm NATO on many of their armored vehicles and M3 personnel carriers. Israel developed a modified link for these guns due to feeding problems with the original US M1 link design. The improved Israeli link worked* with .30 caliber, 7.62 mm NATO and 8×57 mm cartridges."

Mk 21 Mod 0
Mk 21 in Vietnam being fed by an upside-down M-13 link belt (the links are not visible)
The increasing American involvement in Vietnam created a demand for small arms, especially the new M60 machine gun. The Navy had surplus machine guns left over from World War 2 and Korea, but they were chambered for the earlier .30-06 Springfield cartridge rather than the new standard 7.62mm NATO cartridge. The Mk 21 Mod 0 was a US Navy conversion of the .30 M1919A4 to fire the 7.62mm NATOcartridge. This was accomplished by replacing the barrel, bolt, and feed cover and adding a chamber bushing, a link-stripper, and a second belt-holding pawl to allow it to feed and fire the new cartridge. Spacer blocks were added to the front and back of the feedway to guide the shorter round and block the use of the longer .30-06 Springfield ammunition. A six-inch flash hider was also added to the barrel to reduce the muzzle flash from firing the shorter cartridge.
The conversions were performed from 1966 through 1967 at Naval Ordnance Station Louisville. Modified M1919A4s had the designation "Machine Gun, 7.62mm / Mk 21 Mod 0" stamped on the receiver sideplate in 1/4-inch lettering. The replacement barrels had "7.62mm NATO-G" stamped on them in 1/8-inch letters to differentiate them from M1919A4 or M60 barrels; the letter G indicated it used a grooved barrel bushing.
It used the standard 7.62mm NATO M13 link "strip-out" disintegrating link, in which the bolt pushes the round out of the bottom of the two-part link and then forwards into the breech. The old M1 link "pull-out" disintegrating links, which are pulled backwards out of the one-piece link by the extractor towards the bolt and then forwards into the breech, wouldn't feed through the new mechanism. The M1 links, which were designed for the longer and thinner .30-06 Springfield, would also be too narrow to fit the shorter and thicker 7.62mm NATO round. The US Navy, because of their narrower inventory of 7.62mm NATO ammunition, used linked belts of either 7.62mm M80 Ball or a 4:1 ratio mix of 7.62mm M80 Ball and 7.62mm M62 Tracer.
The refurbished feed mechanism was left-hand feed only. It was different from the one in the M60 GPMG in that the open end of the belt had to be on top so it could be stripped out. To prepare the ammo, gunners had to take out both of the 100-round belts from an M19A1 ammo can, had to link them both together, and then loaded the resultant 200-round belt back into the M19A1 can upside-down so it would feed correctly.
