Hmmmm......Does that have an adjustable gas system? Are there aftermarket hi capacity magazines or drum available?

Adjustable gas:  Yes, full power/magnum and light loads.  Adjustment is accomplished by selecting the appropriate gas fitting.  Both come with the shotty.

Aftermarket magazines:  Yes, but availability is an issue.  Came with 2 5 round mags; I've read about  8 & 10 rd magazines, but I haven't found a seller offering them.  I found 3 vendors that claim to have the 5 rounders in stock.  Thankfully, 5 rounds of 12 guage at a time is plenty.  But, when someone builds a drum mag that works - I'll buy one.  Since I'm gonna be "that guy" when I take it out to play trap or skeet ... a drum mag would boost me to "THAT GUY" status - I am mostly kidding.

I bought my son the International Ordnance AK style EM 12B last month for his birthday this Sunday. It accepts the Saiga 12 and 10 round magazines but not the drum. Making merry tonight but I'll put up some pics tomorrow and the accessories I slapped on it.
In the meantime enjoy this video of it and other assorted 12 ga.'s with bump stocks.

Not counting the stripped lower I just bought from Primary Arms (will pick up my $29 AR tomorrow), I stumbled across a 1997 manufactured Marlin 1894CS on Friday.  Looked at it for 30 minutes and could not identify a reason not to claim it as mine. Put it on layaway and planned to go back and try to talk myself out of it this week.

Well pops decided it would be too hot for the fishing trip we had planned for today while the shop was still open yesterday. Loaded up the girlfriend and grabbed it yesterday.



Took it to Bayou this afternoon and I am still smiling. I should have taken a revolver, but I'll have one out next weekend. LOVE the
357 lever that's hovered at the top of my list for a couple years. I was surprised though.  38 spl through 18.5 inches felt like 22 short at <900fps. But the 158gr .357 pushed around 1800fps. Both loads were Federal.   That was a bigger difference than I imagined

Last purchase. This was sold as used, but I can't find any wear on this thing. No wear on the slide or barrel. Went in to buy a new Glock 26, but jumped on this one when I saw the price. Saved a few bucks.

All this talk about Glock reminded me I actually have Model 33 in .357 Sig in my safe. Kind of forgot it was in there. It really belongs to my LEO son who carried it for years as an off duty piece but when I gifted him a S&W Shield a few years ago he put the Smith on and left the Glock with me. I have shot it a few times and like it OK., find it a little snappy for decent follow up shots and the trigger takes a little time to get used to but wouldn't hesitate to use it for self defense or carry.

Its been a while since Ive posted in here. Since the Neos I built a .556 AR pistol. That was fun. :)

Did some Gunbroker shopping.
Found a Beretta Tomcat with a pre-cracked frame for cheap. Its been spending plenty of time in my pocket.
Found a KelTec Sub2000 Gen2 Mutlimag in .40 that takes Beretta 96 mags & added some MCARBO parts to it.
Found a very basic LE Trade-in 4 6-shot Smith & Wesson 686-6 that should be on the way shortly.
And at a local gun/pawn shop I put a Beretta APX Combat on layaway :)

I picked up a PX4 (full) Inox last night with a holster and two extra mags. Cost me $0!!!


Bass Pro now takes Cabela's points!!! I can't wait to shoot it.


Its not the Baretta Custom Carry II that I so badly want but it helps get me through the search.

Well, I'm quickly waiting on Pickle.  She's my new Henry 22lr Evil Roy.  Sportsmans Guide has a custom serial number option means I'll be waiting until sometime in December.  She'll look like:
