so here is the deal...

I own an indoor gun and archery range. it was a diamond in the rough when i bought the building, but over the last few months we have really turned the place around and made it something to behold. anyhow, the place is about 10,000 sq ft...and i have a few smaller rooms left over that are unused thus far. I am trying to put together a weapons display room. Ju st kinda something for people to roam around and look at while they are waiting for their lane to open. everything is behind 1" plex-glass...so no worries there...so...

1. What would be your suggestions for cool looking guns or somewhat unique guns to have on display?

2. does anyone know of an online retaler that sells decommissioned stuff like RPGs and the like?

once the place is a bit more underwraps and our website is up and running, ill post some pics.

These guys have a bunch of display firearms that are legal to own in the USA.

You have to be carefull about ordering anything from the UK or overseas because they have real machinegun receivers. They are prohibited from importation. Most of the free world regulates barrels, not receivers. The USA is the opposite. We regulate the receivers.

I'd swear that in the Cheaper than Dirt catelogs, they have old machine guns and similar weapons where the receiver has been welded. They are sold for "parts" - as you could use all the small parts off the gun for an existing gun you have, if U need the parts.

I'd google "Cheaper than dirt" and then call them and see what they have.

That would be illegal. The machinegun receiver must be completely destroyed and a non firing replica receiver can later be replaced on the old parts.

The Sportsmans Guide also has display weapons.

Well< I just know I have seen some various guns there, and they specifically state that the frame has been altered and is for parts only. I'll have to look at their next catalog and see if they were machine guns or just some old guns. Not sure..

As a backdrop, you may want to consider hanging flags of the nations that make the arms on display.

I received a catalog, that I will have to find, maybe Shooter's Supply? that had fullsize resin replicas of RPG and M2 .50 cal as well as metal Thompsons built on a kit w/ fake receiver. I will look for it and post more info.

SPG has parts kits & dummy receivers to go with them. they also have a quite a few resin replicas for display purposes. You can always buy Semi-versions of everything and use them after hours! 8)
