@Major2, yeah,  I keep seeing stocks, but no matching fore ends. I've been shopping Lee's,  since he did me right with the SKS front sight. Being broke helps one to learn patience ;)

Older thread revisited....

 I'll list mine in hopes a it becomes an interesting thread and/or maybe additional advertizment might bear fruit in my quest .

in no real order then...

1.  A C96 broomhandle Mauser ( quirky and cool I've always like them )

2. A Colt SAA in 32/20 ( has to be a COLT , even a 3rd. gen. )

3. Luger (Erfurt 9mm P-08)


4. A  95 Winchester Carbine in 30/40 Krag ( A Miroku Browning would work )

5. Thompson M1921 or M1927 - M1928A1

Happy to say...these are acquired  ;D

Congrats Major on getting two of your Bucket List guns!
I added 1 to my list today as well, a C96 Broomhandle, a Bolo in 7.63. I had one before that got traded to acquire a Colt Bisley [a genuine Colt SAA was also on my bucket list.
So my "Grail Gun List" looks like this:
1. S&W Ist Generation Hand Ejector "Triple Lock" preferably in .44 Special [ still looking]
2. P-08 Luger, got it a 1915 DWM with Imperial German markings
3. Colt SAA, got a 1905 nickel Bisley in .38 WCF
4. Tommy Gun, an Auto Ordnance M-1, got it
5. C96 Mauser, probably made from 1921-25
Yup, I'm that DeaconKC from Surplus Rifle

Bought one of these critters, waiting for the fedex man to arrive. Next week I?ll see if I bought a good West Hurley 1927a1 or a lemon. The semi auto Thompson from Auto Ordnance and Kahr seem to be the American version of Uberti. They can run but first....


And don?t forget the nfa paperwork to sbr it....

1927a1 came yesterday and does run but only 4 or 5 of my 11 mags seem to work. The others need tweaking or modifying.

an alert ( sound ) on my Cell phone, woke me and now left awake and to idle musing ...

I got to thinking bucket lists.... did a search to see if "someone" else had started a thread on the subject....
well there were some entries, but not in the area I was pondering .

Your top 5  Bucket list firearms, you'd like to own ?

 I'll list mine in hopes a it becomes an interesting thread and/or maybe additional advertizment might bear fruit in my quest .



i'll go along with 1,3,& 5 and add a S&W First model Russian in .44 Russian, 8" barrel nickel plated with scrimshawn ivory grips.

in no real order then...

1.  A C96 broomhandle Mauser ( quirky and cool I've always like them )

2. A Colt SAA in 32/20 ( has to be a COLT , even a 3rd. gen. )

3. Luger  ( 9mm P-08)

4. A  95 Winchester Carbine in 30/40 Krag ( A Miroku Browning might work )

5. Thompson M1921 or M1927 - M1928A1


I could go on I suppose ...but I said 5 so there's mine....

Anybody else remember Sherlock Holmes movie where the crazy loon girl comes out with a pair of Nickel Plate (or silver plate) 7 1/2 inch Colt Thunderers and opens fire????  I want a pair of those.
