Replying to If working actions of different firearms were sold as things to play with (like a fidget spinner) would you buy one?
I feel like cocking and uncocking my bolt action rifle while i watch tv is part of the fun of owning a gun. But i was thinking, do i even need the whole gun? Obviously i could buy whatever gun i want bc im not a felon but i wouldnt mind just owning the action from a glock or a beretta or a borschardt or an ak or a falling block or whatever. If i had a kid i would love to give them a naked weapon action so they could be inspired by figuring out how it works at a young age. If you dont like guns, thats fine, but if you dont find weapon actions interesting youre probly not a very interesting person. The different ways gun inventors have gone about making reliable loading/reloading systems are just as cool as car engines are.
One of you guys should light a fire under my ass so we can go make models of working weapon actions for kids to play with or to put in waiting rooms of doctors offices for the ppl waiting to try to figure out. I couldnt find any vendors anywhere on the web selling weapon actions by themselves. Seems like a missed opportunity.
i guess im being hard on ppl who dont find weapon actions interesting. But what would such a person be interested in? Doll houses? Shaving your legs? Eating imported artisan pretzels?
Honestly i have absolutely no understanding of how a reasonable person could resist finding weapon actions interesting.
