Photo's of your "Battlerifles" [Class III]

It was suggested in the Garand forum to have a sticky note posted for a thread whereby Amback members can post pictures of their "battlerifles" and not have the thread age out. One person suggested I do this for all the BR Forums, so here it is ---- Post away.

It would be nice if I had a full auto trigger pack for my Jld Ent. G3. It thoroughly sucks that that's highly illegal to have. Jeez, government, what a buzzkil. They screw up all the time and kill the mood. :screw:

Here I am getting some quality trigger time with my NFA Registered select fire Springfield Armory, Inc. M1A. Yes, Armory is spelled correctly on the receiver.

Here is Mrs. Different getting some quality trigger time on a M240. I'm the assistant gunner. I WISH the M240 was ours.

The select-fire rifles are the two on the right with the Smith Enterprise breaks (E2 set-up and desert camo stock).

Hey Greg,
Where is the charging handle on the M50? I envy you finding that beauty.

It's actually on the under side of the forestock. Here's a photo for ya:

I think the placement of the charging handle was one of the designs flaws in terms of combat worthiness. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to see how that relief cut into the stock would quickly fill up with mud and gunk in a combat environment and eventually work it's way into the internals of the weapon. Great for a day at the range, but I'd probably leave it at home and grab my M1A or Finn M39 if the SHTF.

Still no peep from the BATFE. It's been about 3 months, so perhaps I'll be getting a call from the dealer shortly to come get my Reising.

Cheers,

Does that thing move with the bolt when fired ie reciprocate? I can see a trip to the hospital to have 1 or more fingers set in splints if it does. Can you imagine that conversation? Q: "How did you manage to crush 2 fingers on your left hand?" A: "Why, shooting a 65 year old USMC issue submaching gun." "Oh"




To paraphrase DJ jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (AKA Wil Smith) EVERYBODY just don't understand.

As a matter of fact, the charging handle does indeed reciprocate while firing... I bet more than one Marine threw his Reising into the Pacific Ocean after getting bit by that. I mean, M1 Thumb is bad enough... I can only imagine the tirade I'd go on if I ever got my fingers caught in that sucker.

Looks like I'll have to get a big flashy "Warning: Don't be stupid!" sticker to place on the stock of my Reising once the transfer goes through.

Cheers,

My 6 ft ladder has warning placards all over it stating that if you climb above the first step you may fall and therefore do so at your own risk. I think some warning signs are definately in order on the Reising. In this litigeous (sp?) society, you can't be to careful

Now all you need is a Beta C with a Reising tower on it.

The guys at Stonycreek Armory are actually in the process of making drum mags for the Reising. I'm already on the waiting list for one of those bad boys.

This Reising came with one of those lame 12-round mags. Took all of 2 nanoseconds to empty the mag. I need to order a few of the 30 round mags from Ken Christie while I'm waiting for the Stonycreek drums to be finished. 12 rounds... how revolting.

Cheers,

There are two magazine wells for the Reising. One will ONLY shoot the 12 round mag, and was originally meant for the Model 65 semi-auto version. The other, used on the M0del 50 or 55, is designed for the 20 round stick mag. The 20 rounders are expensive, $120 or so, but last forever. The magazine wells are available from Gun Parts Corp., along with most other parts. The well is held in place by two large tapered pins.

In all of my reading about the Reising, I've never seen a complaint about anyone actually getting their fingers caught. I've shot thousands of rounds through mine, as well as letting a lot of others shoot it, with no problem. The foregrip is small enough that a natural grip grabs the entire piece.

Get a manual on this weapon. It's not hard to field-strip, but there is a definite proceedure to it.

By the way, when switching the selector between semi and full, H&R advises that you should use the cocking lever to open the action slightly. Why? No idea, as it will also work without doing that.

Yup, I made sure the Reising I'm getting accepts both mags. No need to worry about that. And a while back I picked up a copy of Iannamico's book, plus I have a copy of the factory manual. Definitely good to go on that end!
