I haven’t gotten a chance to take the Mauser to the range. I’m hoping to go on Nov 22. I have three (four if I ever receive the M4) new/new-to-me rifles that I haven’t taken to the range.

Understood.

For me though, its as much about that sense of history as well.

My Kar98k was made in late spring 1940, around the time of Dunkirk evacuation, and was first issued to the Kriegsmarine and went to Norway with the German Navy where it stayed until end of the war, after which it was issued to the Royal Norwegian Navy post war. Its a bolt and butt plate miss-match, everything else is original and matching down to the cleaning rod and capture screws and has an original issue sling as well.
The original German sights are poor for my now aging eyesight though, but I have shot it at 600yrds distance with half decent results.

Complements my 1950s Zastava (Yugo) M48 Mauser well.

I ordered an M4/AR15 on Tuesday, but I’m still waiting for it to ship. That’ll be my final firearm purchase for the year.
I think we might be brothers from different mothers.

Got my ZPAP in the same colour stock recently - love it - it's so accurate at 200 yards with iron sights - though it does get a bit hot to hold after 200-300 rounds at a time, or maybe I'm just a wuss (now if only it was full-auto... FU NFA, BATFE, etc)

And I have an AR-15 in .223 Wylde complete upper arriving from Bear Creek Arsenal.

I didn't even know Zastava made a Mauser - that is lovely!

It took the better part of 2020, but I finally found a receiver set I like in stock!
This will make for the core of my duty-style rifle build.

Aero is good quality for a great price. I wouldn't call it top quality though. I'd never knock anyone doing an Aero based build, and have done a few myself. But there are more expensive options out there which can bring lighter weight, more features, etc..

I hear ya. My current rifle uses a 7075 billet matched receiver. Actually because of that this time I am building an Aero (that I consider a fancy mil-spec receiver) with the specific intent of easily swapping uppers.

I've used lots of Aero stuff for different builds. No issues. Currently waiting for a restock on any of their 12" free float FDE handguards that have the larger inner space for a suppressor.

More expensive doesn't equal better, the gun industry has really got ppls number selling more expensive products that aren't any better based on marketing hyperbole.

An example of more expensive isn't better in my view is Tikka rifles. Sako engineering and quality at a lower price point. My Tikka in .30-06 is far more accurate than I ever will be. It's an effective, good quality and robust product.

His videos are good, I've watched a few over the years. Tikkas are sub-MOA rifles priced well under $1,000. I'm sure there are others. Higher priced rifles, probably handguns as well, are alot about cosmetics/aesthetics. Not unlike German luxury vehicles.

A Honda CR-V will provide effective transportation, just as a BMW X3 will do. The differences are mainly in cosmetics/aesthetics and subjective aspects of ownership.

Built, not bought.

I wanted a cheap, basic AR with Magpul furniture. The PSA rifles that came with Magpul furniture installed were more expensive than buying a standard/base rifle and adding a Magpul kit to it, so I bought a kit separately. This kit has a subtle zombie theme to it, which I think looks cooler than the OD green Magpul furniture I initially wanted. When prices come back down, I plan to buy a PSA AR pistol with Magpul OD green furniture to convert to an SBR.

Currently the rifle has a red dot on it, but I think I’ll eventually install a 1-6x LPVO. Add a light, and my BuIlD will be complete.

Very nice! I’ll be taking mine to the range with the M4 after I receive my soft rifle case. The trigger on the AK is super light and makes me wonder if it’ll accidentally go “full auto” on me. I’ve seen at least one report of that happening.

For a Tikka 260 and easy under subMOA. My 308 Remington 700 in a chassis stock is also is subMOA.
