You CAN have fun on a trip to the range!

If you have the right friends, like FN....

Sir, what's your take on those EOTechs mounted to automatic weapons (the SAW in particular)? I've been seeing more and more of that lately.

Nice!

37mm AT gun, like a PAK 37?

Tuukka, very nice spread. Maybe we should play name those guns with that line-up?

R-Left, BAR clone?, MG-42/MG-3, Bren, to start with.

Adam:

Not a big fan of battery powered devices. I usually prefer the Trijicons, except in the case of the Aimpoint Comp M2, which has so much battery life, it is virtually irrelevant. Lots of EOTech fans out there, though, not a bad piece of gear.

I think that as long as the shooter keeps both eyes open and head on a swivel looking for other threats, it can be a great tool for putting steel on target. Just have to keep them out of the tunnel vision mode.

Just my .02, YMMV.

Next is a Suomi or a Gustaf swedish K and 2 Mp-5 variants, then it looks like at least one stainless/nickel revolver....Then either an Uzi of some sort or a Steyr Mpi 69 and two sterlings, at least one suppressed, followed by an MP-40.....There's also a sten between the Sterlings and the MP-40...

It's a Bofors that I re-barreled with a 20mm Vulcan Barrel, primarily due to Ammo availability. It was a real challenge to adapt that skinny v-barrel to the Recoil Group and the Breech Ring, not to mention replacing the Firing Mechanism in the Breech Block with an Insulated Electric Firing Contactor.

The rest of the Firing Line:

I figured it was something big...

I am pretty sure that the project to which he was refferring here is different than the 18B forum.

Lahti 20mm AT rifle, very nice, got a buddy with one converted to .50 BMG (anything over .50 here is a Destructive Device and is further regulated).

He needed a replacement cocking knob and had to have one machined from stock, no spare parts available here.

AM, is that a 60mm? Also, what tripod is that 1919 on?

The Bipod, Baseplate, and Sight are from a 60mm that was used in the movie "Taps". It was acquired in a mass purchase of Title II weapons from 20th Century Fox. The Tube is 2.5" (Black Powder) "Coors Calibeer".

What about the Browning 1919 tripod?

I believe that it is an FN Tripod. I'll have to get back to you on that.

Just a little fun with some confiscated weapons.
