  • USMC 40X what to do?

    I have a USMC 40x I was going to convert to a repeater, but now with the other manufactures making complete guns for a reasonable price what is the hides opinion on what to do. It is CMP vintage with oem bolt and stock. Yes I know thread is useless without pics, but I am at work.

    I did not want to alter an original 40X and the Vudoo is the answer. Vudoo should be here this week, and the 40X will continue to appreciate.

      If you can afford the designed from the start repeater and keep your 40X you will profit greatly from having two guns.

      If you cant buy the new gun outright.....the historian in me says sell the 40X and you should have a healthy amount of cash to put toward your Vudoo.

      Its your rifle though deciding to change it up is just another facet of its lifes history.

Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

            Keep the 40X as is!!! They are getting rarer and rarer the value will go up. Build a Vudoo V22 and be done with it. The money you will spend for the conversion and stuff will almost be as much as the full Vudoo build.

            I was looking at going the same route you were instead I just did the build and it was well worth it.

              You can always build it into an m40 or early m40a1. Keep the stock parts you take off but wound be a nice unique piece and embracing the usmc stamp on the receiver.

                  There were less than 2700 rifles made that were stamped USMC. Like you, I have one that I considered making a repeater out of but decided to keep it intact since they are few in number.
                  One of the best things about forums is being able to learn from others.
                  From them you can learn; what to do, what not to do and what to do "when you do" what not to do
