What's a decent price for a used Glock 17 with 2 17rd magazines?

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

How used? What Generation? I'd say $350ish for a run of the mill used Glock IMO.

i'm about to get a realtree mossberg 535 in a trade, from what i can tell its a solid 12 guage? its a even value trade so i'm not worried about value from what I can tell. just curious if anyone has one and if they enjoy it, etc. i'll post pics when i pick it up early next week. has a 24 and a 28 inch barrel, and 3 stocks for the 28, 1 for the 24.

just was curious on peoples opinions and pumped on my second gun, been wanting a 12 guage for awhile and finally an ideal trade offer came through!


535 is an excellent shotty!

Get it and cut down one of the barrels to 18.5" and use it with the shortest stock you have. Keep the longer setup for trap/skeet.


I agree. Have a gunsmith do the work for you, it's not too expensive. A shotgun with anything over a 20" barrel is worthless for defense work.

Quote from: gnar_rider;3578286
are you implying that i need a sawed off shotgun for some reason?


US NFA rules: minimum overall length = 26" (horizontal line running parallel to the bore). Minimum barrel length = 18" (measured by the length of a stick in the barrel touching the bolt face on a closed action, to the edge of the bore)

Anything that fits within those guidelines is legal without an NFA tax stamp.

Short barrel shotguns (barrels under 18") are legal in most states as an SBS, and shotguns under 26" are legal in most states as an AOW, as long as you have NFA tax stamps for them.

18.5 is not sawed off.. 14" is. Decides on a lmt lower, they don't look to hard to throw together


LMT doesn't sell stripped lowers if that's what you're looking for.

I'm implying you don't need two long barrels and can sacrifice one for a HD barrel at 18.5". Getting it that short you'll have to saw off the end, yes. Just don't go below 18.5"

CA maximum mag capacity is 10 rounds. You can buy full capacity mags as rebuild kits though and keep them in pieces.

Picked up a Gen 4 G23, i love it so far, 500 flawless rounds.  Thinking of picking up a Springfield Trophy Match 1911, any thoughts?





My favorite handgun.

Relax those elbows buddy, you'll hit better!

My buddy wanted to try duracoating something so gave him my AR since I needed to coat the lower and am currently out of the country anyways.

Bolting on a few upgrades as well!

Found out the TA31ECOS wasn't in stock after I ordered it. :rolleyes:
Ended up ordering a TA31RCO-M150CP-G along with a Larue mount and so far I'm loving it.



What length barrel is this?

Really?  What's the overall upper length?  Yours looks substantially longer than mine - was thinking about getting an upper your length for my AR10 build.

I'm not at home to get an exact measurement, but that flash hider adds 1.7" so with the washers it's probably a hair over 16.2". I also think flat top rails have a tendency to make rifles appear longer in pictures.

Here's a before and after for reference:

Suddenly this all makes sense.  I'm working off the photos my buddy sends me as I'm in the UK and my AR is with him  -  bad photo perspective mixed with terrible memory.

Here was my AR immediately after I built it:



Length perpective is a little off haha.  My foregrip is substantially shorter.

On a related note: anyone know of places with .308/7.62 uppers in stock?  Ordered my 80% AR10 lower and jig plates from Tactical Machining - struggling to find anywhere with any parts on the shelf.

I've bought from these guys before, they are an excellent vendor: http://www.ar15sales.com/

They usually have a lot in stock.
