  1. So this thread is a few months old but I ended up buying a used 1987 27-3 with a 8 3/8" barrel. I wasn't looking for anything longer than a 6" barrel but I couldn't pass up the price.
  2. Honestly, I think another range in the area will do well. GFH is expanding because they are busting at the seems during the weekend. There's still going to be over flow and this new range can pick it up. Plus I live one town away in Pequannock and I know a bunch of people in town that can't wait to try this range out. You'll also see people coming from Riverdale, Pompton Lakes, Lincoln Park and parts of Wayne. It's easier to get to then GFH from these towns.
  3. I buy there all the time. They have a lot of used and milsurp inventory. I've never had an issue with anything I've purchased from them, new or used. Sorry to hear about tjs3023's experience. They've always done right by me. And I also buy from Tom at Oakridge, great guy as well. I was just there last week putting money down on a new milsurp piece.
  4. Anyone ever go to IMA and is it worth the drive?
  5. Griffin and Howe had a couple boxes as well. I bought 3 from them earkier this year. It didn't sound like a hot seller so they probably have a few left.
  6. Nice selection, thanks! Anybody local that I should check out?
  7. Hello all, While on vacation and having a couple permits comung in, I'm looking for milsurp dealers. I'm a regular at FSS and was browsing their inventory the other day, I hit the heritage guild in Rahway yesterday and the Yankee Armorer today. Is there any other shop I should visit that doesn't require me to spend an hour plus in the car or leave the state to find a godd selection of milsurp pistols? Thanks, Sam
  8. So I stopped by today. Very nice stuff but way out of my price range. He had a shelf of original 1911's and another for just Lugers. I just need to win the lottery to dhop there.
  9. But worth it? Meaning are they asking top dollar for museum quality pieces? Not that I can afford or collect pieces like that.
  10. Hello all, I stumbled across their website the other day and for milsurp, they look like the have a nice selection. Anyone here shop there and if so how are they? Thank you, Sam
  11. Yep, I was there last week and bought a Winchester 1917, Joe is a great guy to work with.
  12. I was reading a few threads were people were coming out and saying the top break action was never designed for these modern loads and will eventually fail and take part of your hand with it. So that doesn't sound pleasant at all. I get their point and I understand by the nature of the design it may not be able to handle hot loads. For me, the $1K price tag for a reproduction that might not come out of the safe that often is a hard pill to swallow. I might just skip the idea of the 45LC and stick with finding a top break in 38 or something else like that.
  13. Thanks for the info. I'm not dead set on this but I'm looking for a top break design, I also wanted something in 45LC. I figured if I can get both in 1 gun, I just killed two birds with 1 stone. While looking, I realized that 45LC and top break are hard to come by.
  14. Hello all, I got a couple of revolvers on my wish list and one of them is a No. 3 Russian, Schofield revolver in 45LC. Does anyone own one of the reproductions for Uberti and if so what are your thoughts? The price tag is a little steep but is it worth it? Thank you, Sam
  15. Ok, final update on my DE. After G&S fixed the slide issue and made a new spring for the slide catch (the original one was broke) I tried the new ammo I got from Ventura and the gun is working fine now. The only issues I had were do to me not having a tight enough grip on it. But once I readjusted my stance and grip it was fine. I got 50 rounds through it and it shot remarkable accurately even with my grip not being perfect for the gun. So again, thanks all for the help and advice!
