Question guns you wish you never sold or parted with...... post up w/pics if possible

(if you don't have your own capture of piece see if you can find one on the web)

1st, but doesn't need any pictures. ruger blackhawk 44 6" barrel. was living in texas & that was the official piece of choice by many. loved the boom, but not feeding it so much. also, not as much of a great love lost. i can easily find another one.....

not so much the same w/my model 41 7". was my wifes very favorite pistol to shoot. i enjoyed it also, but nowhere nearly as much as she. it ended up getting sold to finance another purchase cause i really was shooting other rifles & pistols more & wanted something different/like 3 to a dozen, hi points yes, i'm a convert
anywho....
we both broke down today giving each other our big christmas gifts. hers is a stainless looking browning buck mark target master 5.5" w/gold plated trigger & extra mag.
as expected, the way i thought it, stunning to look @ under the glass @ the dealers. it looked even more impressive in her hands, eyes wildly happy

still miss this pistol (not my photograph)

I was also in Texas with the 1st Cav at Fort Hood and I bought and sold/traded two guns that are virtually impossible to get now. I don't have pictures to share, but the first was an Auto Ordinance Thompson with the 50 round drum magazine, a 30 round stick magazine, and the vertical foregrip. Having 50 rounds of .45 ACP on tap was a dream.

The second one (and even more regretted) was a MAC 10 in 9MM but this one fired from the open bolt. If you don't know the significance of the open bolt, it is really easy to convert to full auto and back again with just one screw and a piece custom made to hold down the sear. This put the weapon in full auto mode without selective fire capability. It still stopped when you let off the trigger so that you could deliver short bursts but it was full auto all the time until you remove the little hold down piece. If you've ever shot the MAC 10 at the full cyclic rate of 1100 round per minute (if I recall correctly), you'll know what I mean. It's better than sex! I think that it emptied the 30 round sticks in less than 3 seconds. Talk about a house clearer! Of course, I sold it without the conversion in semi auto configuration. At that time, the UZI in open bolt configuration with the folding stock was also very popular. I wonder why.......

I regret selling/trading both of these to this day, but on the other hand, these would both be felonies to own now. I'd never be able to take them out to shoot anywhere and I'd almost certainly have ended up in prison for owning such evil things!

This is my WASR22 conversion that I made and I had to sell it when I was unemployed to put food on the table. One of my favorite projects.

I have three I wish I had never parted with years ago..They were sold to a friend locally but that makes it even worse to think about I think..
Two are ones that you guys in CA cannot own I believe..
First was a registered M2 Carbine kit that can be used in any M1 carbine to convert it to full auto select fire..

Second and I really do not miss this as much as it was really not my thing was a full auto M11 9mm,one 30 round mag was gone in I think about 1.2 seconds..Fired from a open bolt..

Third I do miss and want to someday find another 1919 BMG parts kit and build another but they are like way out of reach now for the kits..It was converted to Semi Auto only of course..I could never afford the real ones..


The two Class 3s have like went up atleast 6 fold since I sold them,that really makes me sick to think about that.....

I think I hate this thread......

Actually the only one I miss was a Russian Makarov from the '50s. Bought it cheap in the early 90's and I think that meant I didn't respect it or appreciate it as I should have. Let it go cheap too and have regretted it ever since. That thing was ugly but was comfortable in my hand and shot lights out. And 9x18 is cheap. Dang now I want another.

There are 3 that I really miss. First was a 14" TC Contender in .22 Hornet. With factory ammo it would barely stay on paper, but with a Nosler 40 grain Ballistic Tip over 10 grains of W296 it would hit a quarter at 100 yards until I ran out of ammo. Every ground squirrel in the county celebrated when I had to sell that one.

Next was a Series 70 stainless Colt .38 Super. It was one of the most fun and just plain coolest guns I ever bought.

The one I miss the most was a 4" S&W 657. It was a Father's Day gift. I never sold or traded that one, it was stolen. Whoever the thief is, he better hope I never find him.

Now that I've started writing this, so many others are coming back to me. The fact is, I don't ever remember selling a gun that I wish I hadn't. This is a really depressing thread.

I sold my first handgun, Glock 23 (Gen 3)
But to my brother! So I still get to fondle it and shoot it on occasion.

I still have 4 MAC 10s and one MAC 11 (.380) as RAWs here in Kalifornistan. And you're correct, they are a hoot to shoot.



If I had to pick just one weapon I wish I still had it would be my NIB HK SP89
that I sold (with extras) for 5 grand.



Of course I miss a couple of my GEN1 Glock 17s that I bought in 1987...and my Marlin Camp 45 carbine that I sold recently to a nice fellow Cal Guns member. (too make up for that loss, I do have a couple of Camp 9s in DROS right now )

But selling guns makes room in the safe and money for new, fresh weapons that we love.

Six inch Colt Trooper Mark II in .22 LR and .22 Magnum. Most accurate 22 revolver -- heavy -- sweet sweet piece I had to give up when moving from NY. Now they are well over $1200 and I've never seen one for sale in CA -- since not on the list I'll never recover...
