Heat damage to the barrel?

It is a german gun fer chrissakes, not a snowflake special from california :roll:

Actually, I somehow doubt that you would get to the point where the barrel would get that hot. You'd get increased wear and erosion and like that.

A rig like the one I posted is probably worth ~$5k maybe. I don't think that a collector would put it to the test.

"Space Gun"

So what, does it remove the atmosphere in the locality?
If so for how long?
Did anyone consider the catastrophic effects of not only the out flow but the in flow of the huge amounts of air?

Geez...you damn gun crazies!

I know ed doesn't go in for collecting Nazi stuff, but I think he will appreciate this one.

It's about how to tell is a pistol was authentically made for the SS.

Step 1 -- If is has big "SS" runes or a death's head on it ==> FAKE. :)

My rule of thumb is anything claimed as Nazi isn't.

This show acceptance by the army or other nazi organization

Design of AR-15 could derail charges tied to popular rifle

DALLAS (AP) — A subtle design feature of the AR-15 rifle has raised a technical legal question that is derailing cases against people who are charged with illegally buying and selling the gun’s parts or building the weapon.

At issue is whether a key piece of one of America’s most popular firearms meets the definition of a gun that prosecutors have long relied on.

For decades, the federal government has treated a mechanism called the lower receiver as the essential piece of the semiautomatic rifle, which has been used in some of the nation’s deadliest mass shootings. Prosecutors regularly bring charges based on that specific part.

But some defense attorneys have recently argued that the part alone does not meet the definition in the law. Federal law enforcement officials, who have long been concerned about the discrepancy, are increasingly worried that it could hinder some criminal prosecutions and undermine firearms regulations nationwide.

“Now the cat is out of the bag, so I think you’ll see more of this going on,” said Stephen Halbrook, an attorney who has written books on gun law and history. “Basically, the government has gotten away with this for a long time.”

Cases involving lower receivers represent a small fraction of the thousands of federal gun charges filed each year. But the loophole has allowed some people accused of illegally selling or possessing the parts, including convicted felons, to escape prosecution. The issue also complicates efforts to address so-called ghost guns, which are largely untraceable because they are assembled from parts.
