Holes in my familiarity

I can build a 1911, I can build an AR, I can take apart and put back together an M1 or M1A in the dark, I've been in the guts of a Smith revolver without marring the sideplate...  I am familiar with the workings of those shooting irons.

Including trigger time.

I know a bit about Glocks and other modern pistols.  They are easy peasy.

You know where my knowledge is near nil?  Beretta pistols.  AKs are even worse.  I may have never FIRED an AK clone in my life.  I don't even know how the safety works on that. Up, middle position, rock and roll?  Whatever.

I might have to correct that deficiency.  I know a Beretta I can play with.  But I don't know ComBloc enthusiasts.

The harder part will be getting them to let me clean it.

lousy ergonomics but they can be assembled from a pile of rubble.

Simple weapons. You need to get a M1903 or M1903a3 and detail strip it. Try stripping the bolt down and putting back together.

I've done that! Once you know the trick with the bolt it goes a lot faster.
