royals17 My grandfather purchased an StG 44 after he left the army in the mid-50's. He had it all the way up until I was around 7, and then he sold it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When I was around, he didn't shoot with it much, but I know it got some action when he was younger. I never fired that gun, or any other StG 44. I've always kind of wished he hadn't sold it.

WirelessG By the way, have you ever fired a Steyr MA-1. It's one of my favorites.

WirelessG I like your collection too....I'd love to get a USP tactical 45. What else do I see there...some Berettas, Walthers, FN's? STG58 is pretty cool. My gunsmith has an MG44 and a friend in Alabama has an STG44. Never had a chance to fire them, but pretty interesting what the Germans came up with all those years ago.

I have a tube to rebuild the receiver for the Sten....it's the threaded barrel I'm looking for

royals17 MichaelE, you have some beautiful weapons.

MichaelE Nice collection. Try Gun Broker for the receiver or Shotgun News.

I collect mostly handguns, but have an StG.58 and an unissued M48BO and WWII K98k Weimar.

WirelessG I have several firearms:

7AR-15's
10 pistols ranging from 22LR's to 45ACP's
2 shotguns
1 Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R

Like most, I built most of the AR's as a hobby. I built one of my 1911's with parts from Fusion Firearms. That was a bit trickier since it's match grade and had to be fit a few thousands of an inch at a time. I'm building a long range AR at the moment and I have a demilled sten kit that I'm trying to rebuild. The upper receiver has been cut with a torch. I'll replace the receiver and convert it to semi-auto and then get a tax stamp for a short barrel. I'm hoping to find a threaded barrel for it, but so far I haven't been able to.

Here are pics of some of them.

Thanks. I know the pellets he was using, and they're the right size. I don't know what happened really, I wasn't there. But both he and my dad are sure it's in there, so I have to get it out.

Daisy I have a little S&W 38 special airweight with laser. I really like it, but it's not "fun" to shoot at the range. Will be looking for a 9mm for fun shooting and use this for my CCW. It's a great stress relief to shoot, and I really enjoy it.

Any suggestions?
