    SBR and Sistema, finally lol

    Okay, I finally got off my arse and took pictures.

    SBR: Vector Arms (but has the JLD logo on it) .308 HK91 clone, stock closed.



    Same, stock open.



    The Sistema:



    Other side:



    Surprisingly, it's tight:



    Top, the SN is engraved on it:



    If you look at pic number 4, you can see the pitting around the thumb release . That is where the only pitting on the gun was at that I could tell.

    I used the 1911 checklist and no cracks or fractures on the slide/frame. It comes apart easy and I haven't shot it yet.

    Also, on pic 4, there is a rollmark or stamp right over the P. Anyone know what this is?

    Bud, I don't know how to take close up's with my camera. I put it on the "close up" deal but they come out blurry.

    If I knew how to do it I would love to learn. I will mess with the camera some more to see what I can do.

    My next project (as long as they don't outlaw it) is a SB AR-15. I am going to get a Bustmaster lower with a DPMS 10.5 upper. I'm not sure what to think of Tuesday's elections but I figure I better get busy before it's illegal to do so.

    nice ! I had a sistema a few years back in 9x23. It was only a couple of hundred bucks, but what a great gun.
    I replaced the recoil spring and was shootin' .38 super from her. Then I got greedy and someone wanted her more than me and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Boy... I feel that pain alot !

    Oh, I forgot to clarify: The SBR is LEGAL. I went through the tax issue, did a Form 1 (manufacture), got the CLEO signature, did the fingerprints, wrote a check for $200, and got my stamp.

    Bud,

    Yeah, that is something that I have to be careful of now. Since I own an SBR I have to be careful of where I choose to move when/if I ever do.

    That's one of the bad things about owning (and paying for) such a weapon, it removes places that you can live in the "united states?" because it may be legal here, but it's illegal elsewhere.

    Heck, in the state that I live (Oregon) I can own anything I want, carry anywhere I want (concealed) and no problems (well, the house and senate just went demo, the demo "ex marine" got reelected, so gun ownership may just go california way).

    If I move to Washington I can take everything EXCEPT the SBR. If I moved to California, I can't take almost HALF of my rifles/pistols.

    If they only had jobs, I would take my rear back to Idaho lol.

    artz:

    Hey, that brings up a question: I have a star model super that I figure is made just as well as the Sistema (mine is .45, the Sistema) and I was reading about people using the .38 super in them.

    Some say Yes its okay, some say NO, stay away. Most say that even if the gun doesn't explode, that using .38 supers will wear it down really quick and produce failures.

    Any ideas on it?

    I believe anything can happen. I let my gun guy examine it, and he said just change the recoil spring. I also stuck to factory ammo. 9x23 is a hot little round. .38 super couldn't be much worse, but I can't remember the differences in pressures of the two calibers. The wear and tear would be minimal. The guy I sold it to still has it. He uses it as his primary side arm. I put over 500 rounds thru her easily. He prob put 3 times that much thru her in a year...
    Luck of the draw ? could be... I'll say this. I wish it was still mine.

    Good to see pics Wayne Nice - nice!

    Sistema looks pretty good but yeah - some focus problems which could be helped. Most cameras, even if nearly full auto - usually have some provision for close-ups. Check out the manual. It's not easy to see the aspects you refer to.

    Alternative - send me the gun - I'll take the new pics

    The actual tax stamp, fwiw, looks like a S&H green stamp and is applied to one of the two forms (form 1, form 4, whatever) that you send in and is returned to you.

    ATF writes the serial # of the weapon covered on that particular stamp, at least for all the ones I have.

    Bud,

    rfurtkamp is correct. I'll take a picture tonight and PM it to you so you can see what they look like.

    The reason that I don't wish to post the actual paperwork/stamp direct on the board is that it does have the Serial Number written on it.
