Well, I tried to hide it from the wife but it didn't turn out that way - another shotgun showed up in the mail today. Impressed with how my Ithaca long recoil shoots, I decided to look into picking up an old Breda semi-auto long recoil in 12 gauge. These shotguns were considered as extremely well engineered for their days, designed to be taken apart without tools and very well made. Mine is in excellent shape with only a couple of safe dings on the lower stock. Inners are excellent as well. Took it to the range and it shoots great - I'm liking it.

I emailed Breda to confirm the build date, but this is more than likely an early '60s production. http://www.gundigest.com/gun-collect...-breda-shotgun



It came with three outer barrel threaded chokes



Poor picture, but it even has a magazine lock - something you usually only see on military guns



She's a beaut and the internals look almost new.

I let my SKS sit for too long after shooting it and the bolt/firing pin is looking pretty grungy

Just curious, how do you guys get the brownish discoloration off the surface of the bolt assembly?
I scrubbed the shit out of it with a stiff nylon brush + solvents but there's still some that remains .. I have some fine steel wool but was advised not to use that on the bolt

Get some wipeout gun cleaner foam.

Cover the bolt in that stuff and let it sit an hour. Brush, wipe, spray, repeat.

Best cleaner ive used so far.

I found that the tip of my sks barrel is the same way. I cleaned it up after shooting it last, but I guess I missed the end of the barrel. It took a little scrubbing, but it's clean now.

T4 has a good idea. I used something different, but in the same way.

That is a really cool gun. The lever action is so engaging for the shooter. Like a pump shotgun, there's a process involved in getting it ready to fire, and I love that process.

It's so nice to be off the pain meds, and able to walk around and talk to people again. August was a write off for me, but the trip to your store the other day was just what I needed to get back into life again.

And here's the result.

They only had the full blown Dlask trigger kit for $300. Now, I would have bought it because it's the last piece I need to build a new 10/22 from spare parts. Problem was, it was missing a couple minor pieces to complete my parts gun. I checked into those parts, and found that it would be cheaper for me to buy a 10/22 for parts.

The 10/22 world is completely fucked. But they're a lot of fun to shoot.

^ hical sells a lot of individual 10/22 parts. All their shipping costs are $10. Firearm Accessories - 10-22 Rifle - High Caliber Services Corp

Reliable has the Rock Island barreled action for sale, though I think they have proprietary barrels. Reliable Gun Vancouver, 3227 Fraser Street, Vancouver BC, Canada. Armscor Rock Island Armory 10/22 Semi-Auto Barrelled Rifle Action - 22 LR, 18.5", Contoured Ordnance Steel, 1:6", Parkerized, No Stock (Barrelled Action Only), 10rds, Bead Ramp w/Fibre

$300 for just a trigger set is too much in my eyes. I'd buy another K31 first. And it's good you're off the meds - they serve their purpose but then themselves can become the issue

My wife was worried about the pain killers, but I put her mind at ease. I told her that I enjoy drinking far more than taking pills, and can only do one at a time. I then cracked a bottle of JD and drank myself to sleep. Like a boss.



Srsly though, getting old sucks. I won't be shooting this weekend, but instead plan on taking the boy fishing up at Nita or Alta lake.

I was itching to get out and blast some clays so I asked my boys and my International student if they wanted to try shooting - they all said yes. So up the hill we went and I got to show my sons how to shoot, I got to shoot some fast rounds through the SKS, and I got to blast some clays with my new shotgun. Win/win.

The last pic? He's turning 17. They can't own guns in Brazil, where he's from - so this was all new to him. He loved it - especially shooting trap. My youngest son is just 4 and my oldest is turning 6 - the same age I was taught to shoot.

I think it's time for me to order the FTU. Even if I don't go with an optic, I had the chance to try some sick sights yesterday, and really liked them.



I was hitting the 10" gong at 100 yards with the horrible open T97 sights, so the Troy sights should be a huge upgrade.

My kids are always invited out to shoot with me, and they're just not interested. Guns around our house aren't mysterious. They're just tools that I happen to keep triple locked up.

those are very nice sights you posted there. I'm jsut waiting for T97.ca to come out with the new ambi mag release. Haven't decided if i like the lowers they are making. With all that money spent, might as well buy another gun.

If your looking for a nice shotty, Dlask has a semi 12 Ga for $299. The Derya X4, comes with pistol grip and muzzle break. Runs great and an awsome bang for the buck

After making a bunch of calls I finally found one red Savage Rascal in the Lower Mainland. Went and picked it up from Reliable this morning, and then had it our to the range to "test fire" it after work. Nice simple action, smooth bolt, it nicely ejects empty casings, and the sights are surprisingly accurate.

I'll be giving this to my boy for either his Bday or Xmas, but I figured I would get the search done early. Many shops have these Rascals on back order and have had on back order for a while.

Nah, biggest thing is keeping your finger off the trigger lol. The second you pick up a handgun your finger wants to naturally fall onto the trigger. At least that's what I noticed
