anyone notice the gun buyback pictures?

Recommended Posts

May sound dumb but oh we'll, what's the purpose of these buy backs?

 

Political grandstanding, saying " I did something to rid the world of these evil weapons of mass destruction".

I thought that too....the sawed-off shotguns...some of those cuts looked VERY fresh....

I heard from people that know......that they're getting a lot of sawed off long guns at these "buy backs" that have metal shavings falling out of them when they go to process the turn ins. They give more money for sawed off guns than they do for legal guns.

A friend of mine worked a buy back recently ( he's a detective) and he said that the state will pay more money for "illegal" guns and that if we were going to turn in any long guns to make sure that we saw the barrel so we get more cash.

How old is that MP-40 story?

 

I heard that the Cops told her to sell it on the private market.  

 

Could this be the 2nd MP-40 at a gun buy-back?  Highly doubtful..............

 

 

The other story was about a STG44 back in December. The Stg44 is much rarer then the MP40.

Also noticed the expressions of the people admiring them, some looked like they were scanning them to see OO what can I add to my secret collection

I know for a fact that this happens in Florida with guns that have been confiscated by the police for various reasons and were never claimed and were ordered to be destroyed

A lot of illegal shotguns cut fresh for an extra $100. A lot of contraptions and a lot of junk. Some a nice revolver with a lot of engraving work on it. SL recycled some photos for public appeal.

If you're taling about the one that looked like an SAA, it looked lie a replica to me, the color was WAY off what it should have been

    • Keep the pistol grip.  You don't need anything at the muzzle.
    • My apologies for the long post.  Hi everyone, it’s great to join you in this community as I venture into building my first AR here in Jersey. I’ve had many questions satisfied along the way, but one keeps me running in circles. Hopefully some of you can shed some light on this topic... For reference once again, here’s the law on what constitutes an assault rifle in NJ: A semi-automatic rifle that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following: (1) A folding or telescoping stock; (2) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; (3) A bayonet mount; (4) A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and (5) A grenade launcher; Here’s my situation: Before our rifles with detachable magazines can be considered illegal, we are allowed 1 of these 5 features. All these features are listed together and are of equal legality as long as ONLY ONE is present on the rifle. With this in mind, I am working on an 18” precision build which I intend to use primarily at both, outdoor Pennsylvania ranges and indoor NJ ranges. I’d need to switch from a comp/brake to a linear comp when shooting indoors in NJ, so permanently affixing a muzzle device on my barrel wouldn’t be the best option. My buddy in PA would have a pistol grip I can install out there, this way I am not in possession of, nor travel with parts to create an assault weapon within NJ - keeping all within the law.  So naturally, the question here is - keeping the threaded muzzle as the one legally present feature on my rifle, what can I install in the pistol grip portion of the rifle that would not be considered a pistol grip according to NJ law? The law defines a pistol grip as “a well defined handle, similar to that found on a handgun, that protrudes conspicuously below the action of the weapon, and which permits the firearm to be held and fired with one hand.” The one idea I have is to install a Sparrow Dynamics grip along with a Magpul fixed stock which makes it impossible to grasp with one hand - pictured below is the stock with the adapter for a sling plate, I’d keep the straight adapter on instead (see image w red arrow) which does not allow a notch for the possible slip of a thumb around the grip.  And yes, I am willing to sacrifice my shooting comfort in NJ to enjoy real freedom in PA.  Please let your wisdom and opinions rip fellas, and thank you in advance. God bless.    
    • Your going to need water pressure and filter, i have inline filter on my ice machine, i have one that will make 50lbs in a day, 12lbs is not much. if only want 12lbs they make countertop ice machines that are in the 200 range i think will suit you for what you need. like this, Frigidaire 26 lb. Countertop Ice Maker EFIC117-SS, Red Stainless Steel - Walmart.com - Walmart.com i would use filtered or bottle water in ice maker.
    • Anybody have a box or two of Barnes VOR-TX LR 127g ammo they could part with? Trying to track some down and not having much luck.
    • 3D printed  dummy rounds are an unknown quantity.   They will probably work as good as anything, but Snap Caps have been around for ages.
