I was going to ask you about that. I have a M48 in the same condition, I might just stain the stock something dark, re-blue it and dump it.  My wife has been asking a lot about AK's lately, she hasn't shot one yet.
I did a great job on the first two critical rivits, then made the next two ugly and chickened out. I found a company that can do the build. It started as an idea for a very cheap AK, I got a cheap Yugo parts kit and compliance parts, then discovered there are some very nice things about the Yugos (nobody made an AWB-compliant clone so no other way to get one than build it) and am on the fence as to having it built and still having a nice rifle that's cheaper than a Romy, or going all-in and adding a green mountain chrome-lined barrel, and having all the metal refinished, and possibly adding a "correct" scope rail, even though the full-stocked rifles didn't typically have them. Might as well get some new tritium sights while I'm at it too since these are about dead. In the meantime, it gathers dust.

I'd like to get an AK, or a variant thereof.  I know people cringe at Century International, but they have some cheap stuff, and cheap is good.

From my personal experience, I bought one of their HK G3 knock offs with a Hesse receiver many years ago. It worked, nearly flawlessly, but I couldn't hit the paper at 100 yards with out aiming off the paper approx, 2 feet low and right.  You are looking at an AK variant, it's an AK, it ain't supposed to hit anything smaller than a man at 200 yards. LOL It just has to work! I kid! I had the WUM-1 years ago, I liked it. I only paid maybe $300, new and unfired.

Lol, it is in the Enfield family. My dad is unsure which model and I've never seen it in person, but it is WWII era.

Yes, I get jealous that in some places in the States, all you need is a valid drivers license and a nice AR-15 can be yours. (AK-47 and all variants of it are also prohibited)

One of my favorite rifles to shoot is my MKIII .303 Enfield. She did survive the flood, it was one of the ones in the gun cabinet. After a bit of cleanup, you can't tell that it was covered from stem to stern in mud and silt. Those military rifles are awesome like that.

My .22 is a savage that I bought years ago. It had the cheap wal-mart scope on it, but if I could see it, I could hit it. I just threw away the scope because it too was in the flood. I have cleaned the rifle and am going to put some test rounds through it when it gets warm again to make sure that its still shooting well. All of the barrels were plugged with mud.

My kingpin to my small collection though, is my M1. I bought it as a shooter for $500. it's a CVI. That one was not in the flood, and remained safe with me at our place while its bretherin took a beating.

I have practically 0 experience with pistols at this point. With NY's gun laws bordering on absolute violations of the 2nd amendment, lack of time and money, I have still not got my pistol permit. That's in the works for the spring though.
I feel a little less of a man for not having much of a clue what the rest of you guys are talking about in your pistol threads...I'm only a half step above "NEED ME A DESERT EAGLE LOL" I think.

I'm still determined to buy myself a really nice rifle. Something along the FNAR/m1a/EBR lines.

Basically you can contribute to any pistol discussion by saying Glock > everything. Maybe M&P > Glock > everything.

Especially when it comes to cops and civilians who aren't limited by FMJ only. Heck even in many military situations 9x19mm > any other pistol caliber. Mainly because all pistol calibers suck, and you can generally shoot better with the 9x19mm.

Glocks are the AK's of handguns, without the accuracy drawback. Hell even AK's don't have much of an accuracy drawback, unless you comparing it to long range custom AR's. But then the Glock will lose to custom tuned handguns as well. But like the AK it'll keep on ticking no matter what.

The M&P, except for a few teething issues, is basically a Glock with a nice grip.....

I don't like the grip angle of a glock... It points up when I aim it. (personal preference thing)

I love my S&W sw9ve sigma. For me it is perfect, and very accurate. For the money it just can't be beat. but the handle is too long for it to be a daily carry for me...

I got it for $225 with 4 high capacity magazines back when it came out... (they had a $50 rebate, and included a card for 2 extra magazines with purchase.)

I've put over 600 rounds through it so far, easy to clean, and no safety to mess with. Trigger pull is a little much, but if you shoot pistols a lot, it isn't a big deal. 
They tremble at my name...

I gotta say that I hated my Glock, something about the plastic doesn't inspire confidence for me.  My CZ, now thats a gun I can put rounds on target with.  The grip is natural feeling in my hand, and with one hand I can reach all of the controls, which is something I look for when I'm playing with a new pistol.

Also, the Glock Safety Action feels absolutely terrible to me.

Then get the M&P.

Personal preference will be a biggie, but if you are wanting something to fight with, the Glock is hard to beat.


Generally speaking the trigger pull on a combat handgun will be more than the weight of the gun. They are all pretty much horrid.

Honestly I can't tell the difference between most pistol triggers. Unless it is a totally obtuse DA pistol, or a custom SA trigger they all pretty much do what I'm expecting. Especially if you run the gun on trigger reset.

  "a totally obtuse DA pistol"  

This is what a Glock feels like to me.  I can still squeeze off rounds fast with one.  It's just a totally bizarre feeling to pull a Glock trigger.

Oddly enough, it's the trigger that makes me love my Glock. Both Glocks and Springfield XD's have a great feel to me.
 
The only DAO gun I've ever owned was a Sig, and I absolutely detested it. The trigger pull was so bad it was offputting...a Fort Worth PD officer tried to teach me how to pull it properly, but I eventually just swapped it for my H&K and never looked back.
 
That's no diss to Sigs of course, I wouldn't mind owning a real one, but the DAO variety just didn't appeal to me at all.
