  1. Hi guys. A bunch of police surplus Magnums and Wingmasters have been popping up on the Internet. I'm not that versed in shotguns so I have to defer to you guys. Are there any notable differences between the two models I should take into consideration? All I know is that these models are generally considered way better than the Express ones.
  2. So it's 2/10 now. Anyone hear anything?
  3. In addition, can anyone confirm the veracity of this site? I don't want to get my hopes up over a fake news site.
  4. Didn't realize Bergen County had so many closet gun owners. Welcome aboard.
  5. I just checked them out earlier today and it seems they've all been sold off. They did have some 1903s though if that interests you at all. Word on the street is that they recently acquired another estate and should have some new stuff soon.
  6. Rob, are you anywhere near Morris County? Back in October, I was on the hunt for a M1917 and someone suggested going to Firearms Support and Storage, as they've got a big room of milsurp in the back. I managed to snag a 1918 Remington and I think I saw two more in there, one sporterized and one unmolested.
  7. Ended up finding a .308 Remington 600 locally. Thanks for the lead, Parker! Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  8. They also offer Model 7s with an 18.5" barrel, but I've not heard good things about Freedom Group Remington.
  9. I will definitely check that out, just wish it was a fixed mag like the Guide Gun (stripper clips are fun).
  10. Hey guys, Recently, I picked up a 7.62N converted Chilean 1895 Mauser cavalry carbine. I should have done more research beforehand, because it seems that a number of the conversions were spotty at best and it's not recommended to shoot them. Two different gunsmiths have looked at it and deemed it safe to shoot, but to stick with low powered surplus/handloads, so I plan to shoot it, but sparingly. However, I do like the overall length (37") and the idea of a carbine bolt gun with iron sights appeals to me. Does anyone have any recommendations for any modern production bolt actions that might be worth checking out? The Savage Scout 11 looks nice, but it's around 40". Pic below, it's the 1895 I got.
  11. Welcome aboard, Bergenite. I think you also posted this to /r/NJGuns?
  12. I'm also shooting a PM, for a Springfield M1 and Rock Island 1903.
  13. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I mean, all I all have is my word. I was just taken aback at how angry he was I even asked that question.
  14. I think I've had the (dis)pleasure of dealing with this guy too. Last year when I first got my FPID, I went to Ottomanelli's to check out their long guns. Some guy was showing me an NJ compliant Colt and in an effort to make small talk, I said "I know NJ has an assault weapons ban. What makes the ARs and AKs in the shop legal?" Then he ripped the AR out of my hands and barked "It's illegal to disclose that information." I walked out of there and never went back.
  15. Thanks everybody! Haha, fair enough, but someone's got to keep the community going. The main /r/NewJersey is actually pretty supportive of gun ownership in the whole "as long as you follow the law and don't hurt people, who cares" spirit. Correct, my good sir. Nice to see another Jerseyan that spent some time over in the Indiana cornfields. I haven't been back since graduation, but I miss the state.
