careful how they are registered, some come as pistols with a max barrel length and no stocks, otherwise it has to be over 16" total barrel length, otherwise you will have to pay a SBR (short barrel rifle) tax stamp.

The Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22 is a fun little gun for sure. I personally would never buy an ar-15 though. I believe it is much better to piece together what you want and build it yourself. usually you end up saving a little money and end up with a nice rifle exactly the way you want it.

I guess I'll be the first to say something bad about the hi-points, but to me, that gun is ugly as sin. I can't say I've heard any good things about high point ever, but then again most of the people I talk guns with won't even touch any sort of hi-point so its not really a fair argument. I have seen one in person and while I wasn't impressed, it did shoot when the trigger was pulled.

There are so many guns that I would choose to buy over a hi-point, especially for a first gun

I would guess that gun with all the cheap tactical accessories would run somewhere around 300, I can't say I'm sure, but its a guess.

You could get a ruger 10/22 for a lot less, and use the leftover to shoot it a lot, or if you must, deck it out in "tactical" accessories

you could get an remington 870 or mossberg 500 for less if you wanted a shotgun. these are some of the best home defense firearms out there.

if you wanted a nice bolt gun the savage edge is great for the price

if your dead set on a pistol caliber rifle, the only company I know that makes anything i could speak highly of is beretta, but thats probably a little out of your price range because i think they are around 600 dollars or so.

Buy what you want, it's your money, but I wouldn't expect anything quality from hi-point. It's easy to get caught up in all the cool "tactical" looking accessories on that gun, but in the end, the most important thing is how it shoots. If you want something proven, go with a proven company. I can't say I would consider Hi-point a proven company.

Hi-point weapons are ugly, cheap and durable as all hell. I plan on getting 2 9mm pistols one for my bug out bag and one for my wifes bug out bag.

I have a Colt 10MM Delta Elite Government issue, a Springfield XD 9MM, a H&K P2000, a Walther P22 (target gun). At work its full auto M4 and a Remington 870 12 gauge (most reliable well built gun on earth IMHO). And I got a few thousand rounds...

California can outlaw any gun they want but they will have to rip it out of my cold dead hands to get it.

It's a 10 or 20 round (depending on where you live) .22 semi auto, gas operated carbine, with ambidextrous safety. Very very accurate .22 ,very good quality, kind of expensive $500 + new but worth it.

Nice Gunney! .... Is the M1 carbine a winchester ? I shot one years ago and it seemed like a good weapon for home defense and short range stuff. I've wanted a paratrooper model since i was a kid hehe.

That stock on the AK is interesting .... I have a thumbhole AK that I've been looking to change the stock on .... I bought a regular AK stock and pistol grip but the stock wont work .... I need to do something because the thumb hole stock has a terrible feel to it.


We should go shoot sometime ..... we have a nice 300 yard range up here thats pretty decent . Spring time is right around the corner lol ....not.

How much did you pay for your GSG 5 if you don't mind me asking.

i got it about 2 years ago.... im thinking 470-80 range plus nys tax so like 520 ish new then i bought some spare mags at $30 dollars a piece then the mag clamp was 40 ish. They are pricey but have amazing quality and feel. You would thinks it's the real deal by looking at and feeling it.

My m1 is Underwood-Elliot-Fisher Co, great little lead thrower, but sadly only really use full 75-100 yards. The Paratrooper stock is the sex, im trying to find a nice stock to put on my m1 but they are sooooo damn expensive 200+ for the wood work

I have a standard ak stock that might fit yours? Is your ak47 a ati import like a wasr 10 and such?

springville range? i could probably stop up sometime.

I picked my 15-22 over the GSG 5 a few years ago, but I still want one. There's one at the local gun store I've had my eye on.

well the thing that the gsg has over the 15-22 is exclusivity now that they don't import them any more so they will be worth something later on. So if you find one cheap enough think of it as a collectible investment =)

Wow .... I didn't realize how expensive those folding stocks were for the M1 car. I read a article awhile back about them and it was saying with modern ammo .... they have alot better stopping power than they are given credit for .

Mine is an Egyptian maddi Mak-90 .... I have a standard AK stock that i used for awhile but it didn't fit right at the back of the receiver . I had to wrap it in electric tape and it looked alright ....just wasn't perfect so i took it off. It's a stamped receiver but the slant at the back is what throws the stock off.


Actually the range is in the village of Cattaraugus ..... I'll let you know the next time we go shoot.... it would be a good time. Nice collection BTW.

Could you send me a pic of the back of your mak receiver? Stopping power is not too bad on the .30 with the right ammo at short range its just the accuracy. Alot of small police agencies were using re-arsenaled m1's for patrol rifles to toss in their trunk lol.

I like a lot of Tapco's stocks/accessories for the SKS and AK. I'm liking the idea of one of those..Still researching. Anyone have any exp?

I like the "mods" to this SKS..


And this is the AK I'm looking at..Though things would be added/changed to it.


I'm sure everyone knows, but they are 7.62X39 CAL.
