Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Pat '07 Bayonet for my SMLE

OK, It arrived. Yay! Its quite nice, in decent condition, the "rust" I thought I saw on the pics at the top of the scabbard seems to be old, dried out masking tape residue. (anyone got a non-destructive solvent for that stuff? Will something like goo gone work?) It seems sharpened, but I'll defer to...

Re: Guess what I found inside of a cartridge?

Yes Its from the Dominican Republic. That's a "National Lottery" ticket! "Sesentitres" is Spanish for "63" so I guess its some kind of confirmation/anti-forgery thing. 21st April 1968 date ought to give some info on whether it was a winner or not. Maybe Mucho Peso D'oro! http://www.lotteryinsider.co...

Re: Pat '07 Bayonet for my SMLE

I guess that did the trick, reporting it to E-Pay as not shipped after payment made & still not shipped after delivery estimate date either!.
It was (finally) sent FedEx, supposedly for delivery by close of business today!
We'll see, this is like a soap opera.

Re: Pat '07 Bayonet for my SMLE

This deal is slowly, but surely, disintegrating. It still hasn't actually left the seller yet & I've given them notice that if it isn't actually in the mail physically by the 30th I'm cancelling & disputing the charges.
Hoping for the best, but fearing the worst at this point.

If only the seller would actually mail it it would be nice. Estimated delivery was 15th to 22 nd!

Re: Who has a staclomg seovel for a No. 4 Mk1

Yes that's (only) for a No1. The screw thread is different & so is the offset for the old volley sights.
IIRC you'll have a hard time getting one for the No4, because they were discontinued during the No1 era. The only ones I can think of are the old Turkish stacking rods.
