Gunnar's Neat  Stuff

Update,  December 14, 2018

 

To bring you up to date:

Jean is (slowly) recovering and we're going forward with retirement (sort of) plans.  That entails moving to a smaller house - still here in Prince George - with very limited shop space.  A lot of guns, especially long guns, are now gone, although I still have some to get rid of, and some ex-prohibs to re-register.  I am keeping this website going for the foreseeable future, but plan to spend more time looking after Jean.  Look for deals!  

Later

More powder - all new in sealed 1# cans - Bullseye, Reloder 19,  IMR 3031, all at $40 a pound and I found another drawerful of primers!  $40 a thousand :)

Drop-in beavertail grip safety for your 1911 - $15..

The firing pin keeper is an often neglected part of your 1911 45that can, usually after thousands of rounds, crack, meaning it's only a few more (usually a thousand or less) rounds until it separates into two pieces and ties up the gun.  Check yours today - and keep a spare!  $20

The part of your 45 1911 most prone to fail - and Ed Brown has the solution!  His Match Grade extractor is extremely reliable, but they all could use careful tuning for best results - $20...

This Titanium firing pin will help the accuracy and also the safety of your 45 1911 or clone.  $20... 

The LPA adjustable rear sight has long been the go-to accuracy enhancement for the CZ75 9mm pistol, letting you take advantage of its inherent good accuracy.  Drop-in and uses the existing front sight. $60...

This indeed a rare find!  An original stubby grip safety off a 1911 (not a 1911A1) used but unaltered - $40...   These were often replaced as they had a tendency to pinch the web of a shooter's hand...

Here is a factory stock grip safety off a 1970's Colt Commander.  Factory stock, unaltered.  $20... 

This a stock wide spur hammer off a Colt 1911.  Hammer hooks etc. untouched and showing very little wear. A great find for your restoration...$60...  

Here is a brand new unused cylinder for the S&W Model 10 in 38Special.   $150 US, here it's $100.  Convert your old 38 S&W! 

Here is a Tungsten heavy guide rod for the 4.15" (Commander) sized 1911/2011 pistols.  Makes these shorter, handier pistols react more like the full-sized ones - the best of both worlds!   New $80 - this one is $40...  

A new recoilmaster setup for the Commander-sized 1911/2011 guns.  This is the lighter spring one for 9mm etc.  Retail $150, this one is $80.

These are one brand new and one lightly used STI guide rods, full length steel.  New one is  $20, used $15

 This is an accessory rail for 1911's and really makes sense! This one is mounted with two screws that thread into the rail itself, not the very thin dust cover of the pistol.  Just drill two holes and mount it.  You can even take it off and all there is left are two small holes where they're hardly ever noticed.   Why didn't I think of this?   $30

  This is a really neat Bushnell 2-6x28 Rangefinder  illuminated scope.  Has an integral Weaver type rail mount and the neatest reticle :)  $50 out the door:)  Sold, Bob  :)  Gone!

Here is a like-new Bladetech Dropped/Offset holster for the CZ Shadow, right hand.  This won't work for me since I'm shooting left-handed...Can't find these any more, all there is are the highride carry type.  Close to $100 new, now $50, no tax.  Sold, Vaughn  :)

A pair of the justly-famous SVI 2011 45 mags, 126mm (carry-sized), blocked to 10 rounds.  These are like what Jean and I used for competition over 25 years and one of those guns saw over 130,000 rounds before we rebarreled it  :)  These are now selling new for $175 Canadian  - and well worth it!  $100 each - no  tax!

This one is a new .45 STI 2011 mag, (126mmm, carry-sized) hicap blocked to 10.  No longer available in Canada, $100 - all in! 

A few years ago EAA made some "Large Frame" Witness pistols based on the CZ75 but designed to work with 45's.  These mags are for the 9mm's and tough to find today.  As-new/original, these are $10 each... 

And these are for the Large Frame 45's  -$10 each  

 A 22 Magnum cylinder for the New Model 22 Single Six  - $60... 

  Here are four S&W M&P 40 10 rd mags Now $25 each, one is brand new in box (The rest look new, too...) and these are currently retailing for $43!   Three left!

 This $100 Bladetech DOH holster is for the S&W M&P (mine was a 9mm but fits 40's too, of course).  It is a right handed holster so no longer works for me!  Now  $40  

 

This drop-in recoil compensator for the CZ858/VZ rifles in .223 is the AGW Linear model and is noticeably quieter for the shooter than side and top venting brakes, while being very effective.  Installs in seconds with no tools.  $20 out the door :)

  A nice Bladetech DOH holster (Right hand which is why I'm selling) for the GP6 STI (or Grand Power K100)  Now $30 

    These original Colt 1911 38 Super mags are 9 rounders, fitted with extended base pads, and since we're all using 10  rounders now, these are for sale.  Still make excellent IDPA or practice mags, and work very well with 9mm as well - $20 each...  some now gone but a few left...

  STI/SVI Magazine base pads - solid machined aluminum to fit the various lengths of mags, although I see we are only importing the "standard" length 126mm mags now.  This means  you definitely need extended pads if you use a mag well (don't we all?)  Thin ones for shooting Standard Division, thick ones for Open guns - we even have a few for old style 140mm mags - $20 each for new, $10 for used... 

Hurray!  Got my Verifiers Number back!  It was phased out when I cancelled the Firearms Business Licence, and I had to reapply for a new number under my Gun Club.  Coming up - a few guns I had waiting for reverification as restricted - a couple  5" pencil-barrel Model 10 38 Special revolvers, a couple Model 39's, a Model 59, and more...

 

 

 Armco Machine & Plating has ceased operating as a business (although I will still be here clearing out a bunch of personally owned firearms and gear over the next few months).  And sometimes I'll be accepting a nice trade-in on something, so new stuff will show up  :) Watch for some interesting and neat stuff...  

My drop-in/visiting hours are still Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3. It has turned out to be a highlight of my week. As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements :)
