Okay. Say if you had a 1921AC and an M1A1 (both original C&R) with mags, spares, and ample ammo for each. You had to get rid of one (meaning you could only keep one). Which one would you keep and why?

One need not be Confucius to solve that riddle. If you prefer a model that was stripped down because Russell Maguire needed to increase his profits during WWII, then the M1A1 is your choice.

well keep them both,or sell them both,this way if you keep them you will feel good.if you sell them both,you won't keep looking at the one you kept,and saying well maybe i should have sold you and kept the other,or jus.... maybe why did i keep you???

why did i not keep the other,what was i thinking,duh!!

this way sell both,have a pocketfull of cash.if you get the jones to buy one later on. so be it!!!

........wink!!

KEEP THE GUN'S IF YOU DO TRULLY OWN THE TWO......sell the harley,beemer,hummer,or the lever winchester. take care,ron

Since it would be like selling a family member you could choose which one to sell me and I will give you visitation rights. I believe however, sleepovers would be ATF prohibitive. My preferance would be the 21AC but would care for the M1A1 as if it was one of my own.

My old Westy runs like a scalded ass ape. See any of the videos of it firing. Of course all internals are GI surplus. It'll put .45acp down range as well as any others. I think 1930srust will atest to that also,right mole killer?

Keep both; sell wife or kids. I'd sooner sell kidney than give up either if I had even though I would have to give up booze. some things are worth it.
