This has to be in the top ten.
That is one of the two firearms my wife and I want to add to our NFA collection. The other is an M1918 BAR (below).
There was an Elmore Leonard book, one of his early ones, about a guy coming back from WW I with one of those.
He lives in the back hills of Tennessee and winds up having to use it to protect his family from the mob who are trying to take over the area.
Owning one of those would be awesome!! I can't afford my shooting habits now. I only dream of a NFA collection! But if I had one I would definitely try to include all the oldies. I love the old belt fed autos. The M1918 had belt feed options. The M1919 deserves top 10 status also.
I have only one beltfed in my NFA collection, an HK-21, and it is finicky as hell. It reminds me of a British sports car in that it's down for repairs more often than it's running. Still, it's great as an investment piece, as it has appreciated over five times the original price I paid for it back in 2000!
Wow! The GCA of 86 has been good for you! Terrible for the rest of us lol.
Yeah, it was good thing to buy all our NFA firearms prior to GCA '86, but it sure has hell has put a damper on expanding our collection! About the only thing you can still be (new) at reasonable price are suppressors and I don't really need any more of those!
Necroposting. Like anyone is still around to care.
Not tactical sexy. More like classically beautiful.
I've always wanted a double-barreled 12 ga. "coach gun" with external hammers. These are gorgeous, but far too nice for a shooter like me.
How about a three barrel you wouldn't even consider shooting?
Chiappa, model Rhino
Ruger, model Super Redhawk. This design when introduced was the Redhawk. After Ruger gave it a much needed facelift, the original Redhawk was renamed the Super Redhawk.
A scope helps to reduce the Ruger Super Redhawk fugly factor.
This is part of my current handgun collection:
I've purchased a couple of additional handguns since this picture was taken.
My long gun (rifle & shotgun) and NFA firearm collection (combined) is a bit larger than my handgun collection. I haven't done inventory recently, but I think the total collection is in the high 50s.
Chris, I desperately want one of these (blued rather than stainless)!
I'd like to shoot the Rhino. It would have to feel great, shoot great, and seriously absorb the recoil before I'd consider buying one. But if I just wanted to expand my collection, yes a Rhino would be on the list.
I've only seen one in person, and that was a new one at a hole-in-the-wall pawn shop not far from my house.
Actually, my most recent firearm acquisition wasn't a handgun, it was a rifle.
It's a Ruger breakdown PC carbine, chambered in 9mm Para. It takes standard 9mm Glock magazines, so they'll be easy to come by. I'm going to carry it as an emergency survival rifle in my 4x4.
Here today to share some sexy German engineering.
