    With present ammo prices, our PakGunner shoots four boxes (of 50 rounds !) and exceeds the price of his new pistol.

    Why are you justifying/advocating np22 to be sold for 90k?
    Suggest him b6 that is also being used by army if that's your benchmark.

    What i learn everything is available in the market if u are ready to pay insanely high price. Arms dealers are justifying by saying there is ban on imports from 6 years. This is just a excuse.

    I had written good reviews about him and had even given him almost half a million wroth of business over the years simply because he had his own repair workshop right next to his outlet. And he was nice as well. From fellow members Hkkada dadda (or whatever his name is) to Zia Raza, I had sent a lot of business his way.

    But when I walked in with my 52k giant paper wight slung over my shoulder, he did not even wait for me to tell him what was wrong but straight away went into his " business-is-down-I-am-sorry-I-cant-help" spiel.

    Told me to try contacting people in Peshawar. the fact that he had said that the weapon covers a life time warranty did not count, of course.

    B6 is bit difficult to handle it needs a lot of practice NP22 is better option than B6 although carrying around waist will be a question mark

    The reason i prefer Habib at RAC is because his is a factory outlet, so he actually does replace and repair stuff free of cost. Besides, Pakguns has given him a lot of business over the years and he knows it. I do update my reviews after a purchase.

    As for not firing a shot.. Take her to the range, test her out and see what she does. This is a girsan clone waisay. And Girsan itself is a Beretta clone. Who is the maker?

    Reason being that yesterday I sent a couple of dudes to Ali Armoury to buy the same thing. ALi Armory does the ZSA brand. They told me this piece was 23k. This is the standard price of the best Beretta clones at Lucy star.

    Taurus clones are more expensive. Around 26, 27k branded clones (The price at which the dude bought it yesterday). A clone of a clone of an unknown brand that blatantly proclaims itself to be made 'in' USA (As opposed to made "as" USA. Like the major companies in Peshawar who put their company name and brand on their products,) are worth under 20k.

    maybe if you would have asked for our advice before purchase, I might have been of some little guidance. But now, (sigh) just take her to the range, try her out and if something goes wrong take her to the Khakhi. If he does not do anything, I will suggest a few decent gunsmiths at Lucky star.

    Join us for a range session this Sunday at the ASCC range. I would like to do a review on your piece.

    both are good and cheapest in imported weapons now days.

    if you think price is insane, just dont buy it. as prices are soaring everyday due to zero legal imports.
    when there will be new imports, prices will come down for sure. till than, wait or buy expensive. this is simple economics. demand and supply rule.

    Good day for guns today.

    Trade goods:



    And a pink laminate stock for the child training rifle, so when my youngest gets use of it next year it will match her outfit.



    Arrived, custom sling for the German drilling:





    And the holster rig for my eldest daughter's Redhawk, to complete her 21st birthday present:



    Featuring this little guy in the detail.



    Cartoon here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYi_hq2p1Ac

    Since the English is cartoon Mexinglish, I'll subtitle:

    "Maybe, Jose, instead we try to catch the Speedy Gonzalez [the fastest mouse in all Mexico], we should have catch Slowpoke Rodriguez, the slowest mouse in all Mexico."

    "Slowpoke Rodriguez? He's for me!"

    "Wait, Jose! Jose! I got to told you something!"

    "Senor Slowpoke, you will be good with the chili peppers!"

    "Hey, Jose! Something I forgot to tol--"

    BLAM!

    "That's what I wanted to told you. Slowpoke Rodriguez, he pack a gun."

    "Now he tells me."

    Getting scarce, but I was able to score two more 91/30 Mosin Nagants at a good price, to flip later.

    Gun show weekend. A friend threw two antiques at me and I foolishly said yes and handed him money.

    This is an 1891 Argentine Mauser, contracted out to Peru. 7.65X53 Mauser caliber.





    And this is an 1888 Commission Rifle, 8mm Mauser (first weapon to use that caliber, the first smokeless, rimless round, and basis for dozens of others). Most of the ones I have are Turkish contract. This seems to be German contract, Danzig arsenal, 1890.



    Under US law, being made before 1899, neither of these is a firearm. Completely unregulated. I have ammo for both.

    We can't import from Russia anymore. These were found in the Ukraine, buried in a wet basement. Priced accordingly, but still functional.
