    Odd/Rare gun pictures

    I just saw the thread with pics on the Alchemy Arms Specter .45 (thanks mkillbrew) so I was wondering who else owns an odd or rare gun that you would actually recommend? I had a CZ 100 at one point but no pics unfortunately... Let's see what you have!

    There's the Remington 51, Pedersen designed, with a very unique locking system. Remington Model 51 - 9x17



    French SACM 1935a which was to be the pistol after which the SIG P210 was designed. SACM 1935A - 7.65x20

    May or may not be odd or rare to some, but the much forgotten about AR-180, short-stroke gas system, simplified bolt carrier, AR-15 like bolt head, mostly stamped. AR-180 - 5.56x45

    The Remington ain't so odd to me. My wife's grandpa carried this .380 around Taylor back in the 1930s & '40s - it still shoots well.

    Relative to the locking system of every other firearm, it's fairly unique.

    Colt SAA from 1903. Rebuilt by Eddie Janis (2nd Gen barrel and cylinder in .38 Special). Pocket watch is from the late 1880's.

    Good posts!

    This thread has potential.
    It was what it was, back when it was good, and it ain't getting any better any time soon.

    Here's another. S&W M&P .38, 5" barrel from 1935. Original stocks. It's wearing a Mershon grip adapter from the 50's. Gun has not been refinished.

    Kelsey.jpg This Colt 1911 was made in 1918 and was issued by the United States Army. Obviously its been nickel plated and custom grips added, but I have carried this gun on duty for the last 7 years. Its got every original part it left the factory with and is still the best shooting pistol Ive ever owned.
