Nope, brand new made in the Remington factory. I know the Remington guns have been getting a bad rap, but this one seems to cycle just fine and has a decent finish and fit to the wood. It's the W, so it's even the cheap version, which is not walnut. I think it's birch with a darker stain. The wood doesn't matter that much to me, since this gun is going to get used on the ranch and beat up.

Man that's a great looking shotgun.

Where did you find one with a wood stock?

I don't think they come with wood furniture. Mine came with regular synthetic stock/forend.
Bought the wood out of ebay.
That's how it looked when I got it, I sand it down and "varnished" with used motor oil!

This was my first centerfire rifle. 1943 Winchester M1. From the research I've done, it was apparently part of a shipment of Garands that went to Canada in the late 50's. It also went through England at one point since the barrel has Birmingham Nitro Proof stamps. Not a lend/lease rifle. I have a few other M1's in my collection, but this one means the most to me. My grandfather bought the rifle in the mid-60's and rarely shot it. He bought it because he carried one as a Marine in WWII/Korea. Paid $39.99 for it at a hardware store in Goose Creek, South Carolina.

When I turned 16 in 1988, he gave it to me. Shortly afterward, I started shooting in NRA Service Rifle matches and had nat'l match sights installed (hard to beat a nice set of NM sights on an M1/M14). I was never a serious competitor, but I scored pretty well on a few occasions and spent about 10 years shooting various matches with this old warhorse. With my 175gr handloads, it will still shoot an honest 3MOA at 600yds from a rest if I do my part. Not bad for a 70 year old rifle (although the barrel is much younger.) And it's killed more whitetail than any other rifle in my vault.

That is an elegant rifle.

My SCCY came in on Friday and I took it out for a little test shoot. First a couple pics...



Size comparison, top left is a fullsize 9mm SIG P250, bottom left SIG P6, top right sub-compact 9mm SIG P250, bottom right SCCY CPX2.



May not look like it in the picture but the SCCY is significantly smaller than the SC P250. It also weighs about half as much and feels better in my hand.

Upon initial inspection the fit and finish of this gun is incredibly good, as good if not better than my SIGs. The grip seems large but it fits very well in my smallish hands and aims naturally with my grip. The only other gun that seemed to have a natural feel like this was a Ruger SP101 I shot a couple years ago.

The gun was a little rough out of the box but my tried and true break in method worked it in before any FTD, FTL, or FTF's could occur. I took it out and fired off 10 rounds in 35 degree weather with ease. The trigger was smooth and even, no rapid buildup or release of pressure as you pulled. The gun had normal recoil for a 9mm which is amazing for such a small gun.

This was the first SCCY my local dealer had ever seen and he was impressed, he has seen a lot of guns and sells a lot of high end stuff, in fact the guy in front of me had just bought a Kimber SOLO. Comparing the two he thought the SCCY looked the part of a $600 gun with the price of a hi-point.

I will hopefully get a lot more rounds through this when Spring comes and get a chance to test it's accuracy on some real targets.
