In a selfless effort to bolster the economy of northern Illinois, I recently purchased a couple of guns manufactured by Geneseo, IL's Springfield Armory. They just cleared and I picked 'em up yesterday. Check 'em out:
Loaded Operator 1911-A1This is the 1911 .45ACP pistol that the F.B.I.'s tactical teams use. It was manufactured to their specifications, and is an all-around fucking sweet gun. It's also the only 1911 in production with an integrated mounting rail.
SOCOM II M1A .308
This is the big-gun of the US Military. It shoots .308 Winchester rounds, and is the rifle that the army turns to when the M-16 just won't cut it.
This gun is gonna put me in the poorhouse. After reading through the HUGE warning tags that came with it (3) I realized that this rifle has been headspaced for precision mil-spec ammo, and using my preferred cheapo rounds could cause this thing to explode. GI mil-spec ammo runs about $1.50 per round, so to shoot off a full clip is gonna run $30.00.
Nobody said that superior firepower was cheap. This gun is gonna have to be saved for special occasions, and I'll rely on my M-4 and AK-47 for casual shootin'.
I'll have both of these bad-boys back in IL next week, so if anybody wants to come out to BFE for some shootin' you're more than welcome. Get yourselves some.
