I don't have either of these but the two I would choose would be....

(1) A stainless 5" Coonan 357 magnum with a threaded barrel. Since things are good and ammo supply is good I'd want one gun to do everything which would include hunting small to larger sized game. It would also have to do self and property protection as well be something to plink around with.

I almost said a SBR .357 magnum rifle but I had to factor in concealability for self defense. A rifle just doesn't work there.

(2) A stainless 10" threaded barreled 10/22 takedown rifle. I will assume that people still won't just be walking around carrying guns so I'd pick something that can be "put away". I'm thinking the more ammo you can tote the better. I also don't see myself battling it out with anybody or anything so I could hopefully live with the disadvantages of .22lr as the only choice I have. I think I would constantly be in the "run, hide, fight" mindset when dealing with any issues that might come up. As for hunting, I think .22lr is a good round for any opportunities that may pop up. I'd rather have a rifle stock for the accuracy but a shorter barrel for portability and maneuverability. I also would want a suppressor just because they are cool lol...

Second up would be a short barreled shotgun and third is a short barreled .357/38 rifle.

....no one will burn an effigy of you mate (well not at Christmas wink ). G3s are not at all bad rifles, they are accurate and reliable and (for me at least) with the ergonomics of a fence paling !! I have more thay my fair share of rounds out of them down here (PSGs, 91s and 93s) and a few different rifles in the States...

.... that one is a select fire G3K. Lots of fun but like handling a jackhammer from the shoulder. With the poor handling of the 7.62 rifles AND felt recoil it just does not add up FOR ME, thought thy look cool wink In 5.56 (93s) they are much nicer.

The one on the right is a factory L1A1F1 (in Brit plastics) but the flash hider has been removed in this pic.

Nice. That looks like the one I had, but that's not saying much. After talking to My BIL (who I gave he rifle to sell when they had "A Problem" I now think it was an inch pattern, IF there is(was) such a thing. I took off that stupid buttstock with the intregral pistol grip and replaced it with "Plastic" furniture from Brownells.

The easiest way to check on what it was from a distance is did the rear sight fold down ?

I Don't remember for sure but I THINK that it was. I put a "Scope mount" receiver cover on it, that just basically I THINK slid on. That was a few years ago and I've slept since then so My memory isn't so great.

Yes most FAL type optic mounts slide on in place of the body cover. Some have retaining plates and screws and some don't There are other designs that are less common (they locate to the left side (and over the top) and are secured with a fixture that replaces the pivot bolt. Some (like in the pic abover) are screwed to the side of the body.
