    If you could customize your own pistol, rifle, submachine gun, or shotgun, which model would you pick to customize and what would you customize it with?

    I'd like a Tiger II. Lowered hull, with hydraulics, chopped and with nitro injection in the engine.

    :D

    my my... the possibilities make me drool

    a customized Yugo SKS 59/66 "carbine" would be very nice. scope, polymer stock (camo painted), bipod and extra long bayonet. maybe that golf ball launcher set as well...

    *EDIT* i'll do like Christian... Pimp my tank!

    imagine a black Sturmtiger, with loudspeakers that make the entire tank vibrate. it would be "decorated" with spikes all over, and have a huuuge foam cannon instead of the 38cm launcher (which would be kept in my garage, "just in case"

    i might attach a few extra Mg-42's and bring my friends along for a ride...

    Does it have to be a real weapon?

    (NX-01 Enterprise with Kirk era weapons and tech.....hehehe)


    Seriously I would have a modular version of the AK built. Sniper attachments, extended clip, full electronic scope. The works.

    For a vehicle? (The Tumbler....)

    Modified SR-71

    For me just a plain good old Short Magazine Lee-Enfield is perfect!

    I have to say I agree -- if necessary backed up by a company or two of the original (1914) BEF -- aimed fire out to some 1000 yards, so the Germans thought they were facing a batallion of machine guns

    Very true and I've also got to say it is one of the finest rifles I have ever used, The action is nice and smooth, the kick isn't too bad either. And of course it is a very accurate rifle. But another one I would have to choose would also be the Bren gun. In either the Mk1 or Mk1M formats (the Mk.3's barrel didn't really do it any favours other than shortening it and the Mk.2 was heavier than the rest)

    Good idea, Siberian Black, I'll open a Customized Vehicles topic in the Member's Lounge sometime.

    If memory serves, the Savage centerfires have a sweet trigger-pull that is the envy of many higher-priced rifles.
    That is, if memory serves...

    I'd pick a Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM II (Scout Squad Rifle) in 7.62mm NATO with 16" barrel and cluster-rail. It would be perfect right out-of-the-box.

    The new Savage rifles have what is called the Accu-trigger. Nicest factory trigger on the market right now.

    Actually it's not just about tanks, I had cars and even starships in mind. But, the topic's dissappeared from the Member's Lounge (and from this forum in fact-I can't find it anywhere and am wondering why).

    It's a rifle I use for shooting in 600 yard and 1000 yard F-Class competitions. When I do my part, it will shoot a 12" group at 1000 yards. I don't always do my part though. :wink:

    The stock is now a medium metallic blue.
