PSL “Shorty”

Although Tennessee Guns International sold a PSL Paratrooper, this particular example is slightly different but same concept. Barrel was shortened with a flash hider permanently attached. AK handguards, in this case a Romanian “donkey-dong”, was installed. Definitely going to produce some large fireballs from that short a barrel with the 7.62x54R cartridge. (GRH)

LAR Grizzly MARK I

What some would call a 1911 on steroids, the LAR Grizzly does share some parts with the venerable .45 ACP pistol. However, the caliber the Grizzly uses is the .45 Winchester Magnum. This particular example is a very rare “longslide” model, using a 7.75” long barrel. Very few were produced and have become highly sought after collectable pieces. (GRH)

Krebs Custom

Although Marc Krebs is mostly known for his custom AK work, he did start off as a 1911 smith early in his career. One of his innovations was the snakeskin checkering pattern for the front and back straps. This is still seen today in other high end or custom 1911 shops. When he shifted focus towards his AK work, his 1911’s have gained become somewhat collectable. (GRH)

Purchases…

Pardon the lack of posts this past week, only had one day off and that was to attend a funeral. Also moving things around in my room since I redid the floor.

Part of the reason was cause I wanted a new floor but also to clear out junk for new things and try to maximize space for a recent purchase.

I did buy a few things recently.

A couple boxes of Hornady 500 gr. FP/XTP bullets for my reloading. I’m gathering all the ammo components for the next AR-15 build, which is a Beowulf.

This also serves a secondary purpose. If I decide to go with the 335 grain bullets for my Beowulf, I can always use the 500 grain stuff for my Taurus Raging Bull 500 chambered in 500 S&W.

A much needed part for my Shrike also arrived. This dowel looking thing is actually a spacer that you need in order to use a full length, fixed rifle stock on a Shrike. If you haven’t followed along on that build, the Shrike has a side-charging handle that interferes with most aftermarket collapsible AR-15 stocks. I’m swapping out the Magpul UBR for a Magpul PRS.

The third purchase is one that hasn’t shown up yet but I’m expecting it to arrive on Wednesday, according to the tracking number. I opted to get the DShK wheeled mount because I honestly don’t know when I’ll ever see one for sale again.

Funny story about this mount; I’ve been waiting for it for two years and kind of gave up/forgot about it. Until I got an email while I was on vacation in Canada from the dealer that they had finally arrived.

Apparently the dealer, who sells equipment and arms to the DoD found a warehouse in Poland that was stacked to the ceiling with what he called “green coffins”. Full of surplus stuff; gas masks, helmets, misc weapon parts. However he said the middle boxes were unknown items since they were difficult to get to. That’s where he found the DShK mounts along with KPV stuff.

They were supposed to ship out much earlier but apparently the captain of the cargo vessel in Europe did not want any military equipment on his ship, so everything the dealer bought from the warehouse was delayed. Two years later they’re finally here.

It will be nice to finally have the proper mount for my DShK. I just have to be very careful around it; the entire thing without the DShK on it still weighs close to 300 lbs.

I could rest my laptop on my DShK while sitting down on the seat and blog from there…

Custom

A member on the FAL Files forums custom transferable SAR-48 with a unique add-on. After several years of talks, blueprints, prototypes and delays, the ACR stock adapter for FAL Paratrooper lowers appears to finally be in fully production swing, with the second batch of orders being taken. This is a huge improvement in ergonomics over the standard FAL side-folding stock since the ACR’s stock can be adjustable in length and provides a better cheek weld. Definitely buying a FAL just for this mod. (GRH)

Makleon

The Hebrew name for the Israeli heavy-barreled FAL variant. It was not the only heavy barrel model to be produced and fielded; Belgium, Canada and Australia all had their own variations. One unique accessory for the Israeli Makleon was a hinged trapdoor dustcover. Quite rare and probably ever only used for trials, though they may have been fielded in limited numbers. The rifle above does not have the trapdoor dustcover. (GRH)

Vepr 12

Russian made semi-auto magazine fed 12 gauge shotgun. The last batches of Vepr 12’s to hit the U.S market came with a welded open stock. It is possible and legal to break the weld. You would then have to replace a certain amount of Russian parts with U.S ones in order to meet 922r requirements. If do decide to break the weld, take your time or have a gunsmith do it. I’ve seen some attempts where the owners ended up breaking off small chunks from the rear of their receiver. (GRH)

Daniel Defense M4V1

Older model rifle with Magpul furniture, although the pistol grip is an add-on. Normally the M4V1 comes with an A2 style grip. Current Daniel Defense rifles are now using their own specially designed stock and pistol grip. This classification may differ for everyone based on budget, but Daniel Defense would probably fall into the intermediate level of AR-15 rifles. They are cheaper than higher end AR-15’s like Knights Armament, LWRC, H&K, but cost more than the usual budget friendly DPMS, Anderson Manufacturing etc. (GRH)

Detonics Pocket 9

A small compact 9mm handgun designed for concealed carry. Though it looks like it has no sights whatsoever from the side, they are actually hidden along a channel along the top of the slide. This prevents the sights from snagging onto clothing or your purse/bag when you’re pulling it out. Capacity of 6+1, it was only made for a short period of time. It’s main criticism is it’s overall weight since it contains little to no polymer. The grips are aluminum in spite the plastic-like appearance. (GRH)

.460 Rowland

A Kimber 1911 converted to fire the more devastating but obscure .460 Rowland cartridge. It has nearly double the PSI of a .45 ACP round, with the .460 Rowland generating about 40,000 PSI. The elevated pressure levels requires several modifications to a 1911 platform, such as a compensator. (GRH)

Grendel P-10

A small polymer pistol that has an odd characteristic; it’s a top loading, stripper clip fed semi-auto with no detachable magazine. Chambered in .380 ACP, it would be a decent concealed carry option if it wasn’t for it’s lack of a standard magazine. The Grendel P-12 is the other model that actually uses a detachable magazine. (GRH)
