I want it back 😭

We've all got a wish list of the guns we want but don't have, either cos they're too expensive or rare as rocking horse shit, or sometimes a bit of both ?.

But what about the guns we've owned, then in a moment of madness sold, only to regret later, & would buy back in a heartbeat.

Mine was my Star FNC para, all metal with an excellent burst mode, no fancy ris etc, just old skool goodness, think Al Pacino in Heat, I miss that baby sooo much.

 

Whats yours ???

A few years ago my shooting partner sold his King Arms L1A1. Instant regret for him. He did manage to get it back after a couple of weeks as the piston stripped and the buyer wanted it repaired. So he offered a refund instead.

I sold my TM spas 12 with stock, regretted that almost instantly. 

Then sold another spas 12 I'd later acquired with stock when I had a big car bill. 

Managed to get it back yesterday though. 

 

And an escort MP5 that I bought as new old stock from redwolf in 2013. About 160 quid. Couldn't believe how lucky I got with that, it worked perfectly. Shits all over a WE apache imo. 

Externally not as good but it shot so much better. 

Got made redundant so it got sold.

Daft as it sounds, I sold my Ares CCP last year. Wish I hadn't and had held on to it and spent more pennies on it.

King Arms FN FAL from a few years, offloaded it to a friend who made a DMR.

Looking forward to the re-release this year.  Planning on picking one up, intend on just adding  a canvas sling to it.

TM Spas 12 stock. Should have kept it but made a nice profit.

 

I regret NOT buying a TK VP70 when I was offered on on a plate. I also regret not buying a replica set of USMC T-Pattern bdus.

 

My dad sold on a KA L1A1 and my brother sold on his G&P Stubby Killer at prices that would seem overly generous now.

 

My main regrets are Crye pieces I sold on for a profit but should have kept.

Fals & L1A1's seem to be the holy grail lol, everybody regrets selling theres, everybody else (including me) wants to buy one, you've only got to look in the "guns wanted" sections, more than any other model usually.

Yeah, part of it is my addiction to extracting good accuracy out of these things, you can only spend it once....

She knows, she's come with me on long arse drives to the other end of the country to pick guns up...and motorcycles for that matter... 

 

She's a keeper and tbh she's the very best aspect in my life. 

 

Almost everything I own is fluid and has a price, tbh. Whether airsoft, cars, motorbikes, rc stuff, whatever. It's always up for a trade or something. 

I think the only thing I've genuinely decided is staying, and has no price, is the Guzzi. 

 

I've been playing 7 years and I'm heading for 150 rifs. Currently only own 8. But wanting to sell 2 or 3. I always come to the same conclusion, I play cqb and I like a shotgun and a revolver.

I sold my TM SPAS 12 with folding stock for £50 years ago. Doh.

 

I also miss the PTW retro carbine I made... though I don't miss the shocking reliability.

TM M4, the socom variant if I recall (it was decades back. One of the larger retailers had a massive stall at the war and peace show in Kent (pre UKARA) and I couldn’t seem to resist it. Wouldn’t mind having that back now!

Do you know how much it will cost?

 

I seem to remember these were significantly cheeper than the Ares version, and people say it’s allot better performance also. 

 

I had one of the last one of these which I could find in stock back in 2014, but it came with a cracked body and messed up hop up so i had to send it back sadly.

If  I had to put a price on it, about £350-400 range. Might be a bit in either direction depending on shop selling it. 

Basing that figure on previous prices of the FAL series and what the cost was of KA's re-release of the Galil range (2019).

Funny thing is i bought an extra mag with it which i still have. I've kept it for 6 years now in the hope that i might finally get another one again ahah.
