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: BLO on Arisaka stock?

I remember a few years back everyone was using Howard's Feed. Then it was you must use Tom's 1/3 mix. In and amongst that was either linseed oil or tung oil. Pay day is coming up, so since I have 2 Arisaka', a Swiss, a Mauser, a Mosin, an 03A3, and an M1, a jar won't be that much of an investment. S...

Re: Weekend road trip.

I remember when they found the Mercury capsule, I've wondered where it ended up at, now I know. Maybe in the next couple of years Mama Hammy and I can take a run at it. Thanks for the info, it's always a source of amazement to me what pops up on this site.

Re: BLO on Arisaka stock?

I think the intent of my question was not totally clear. I was wondering if I give the stock a rub down with linseed oil, will the oil soak thru the original Japanese finish and into the wood without damaging the original finish. I don't want the wood to dry out more then it already has over the pas...

BLO on Arisaka stock?

Hey fella's, I need an answer to a question. It's that time of year when I empty the safe and detail clean and oil the collection. I know this has been discussed here before, but I think it was before the crash. If I do a BLO cleaning of the stock, will the original finish be harmed in any way? I ha...

Re: Signs you are growing old.

How about setting in the classroom in school, and the teacher passing out mimeographed papers? I remember the smell and if they were fresh enough, how warm they would be.

type 38 carbine ejector question

Hey all, I have a question that I'm sure will be answered here. I was given a type 38 carbine by a good friend, he said it was a good single shot, but would not eject. I found the magazine spring and follower were gone, so I found replacements on fleabay. I shot it, it fed perfectly but would not ej...

Re: Why so much

it appears to be from the last block of serial numbers assigned to Springfield of the last batch of rifles they made. (Serial number look-up on Fulton Armory's website). Mine's receiver was made in June of 1942, barrel dated 5-55, if I remember correctly. So, theoretically, mine should be worth at l...

Re: Spurs and the Great West

When I was a kid, we lived in a big 2 story farm house on about 20 acres, which was mostly timbered pasture with 2 big barns and 2 horses. We would feed the horses every day, and muck out the stalls twice a year to get a break on the rent. The landlord and his wife would show up every Saturday to go...

bayonet replacement parts?

Hey guys, I recently came into possession of a rather beat-up bayonet, which is lacking the retaining latch. It appears to be Toyoda Automatic Loom Works manufactured, it has the tip ground flat, is heavily varnished, and has no muzzle ring. I am looking for parts to replace the missing latch. Any i...

Re: Movie rifle anachronism

Speaking of Mosin snipers, the movie Kelly's Heroes, when they are trying to take the Germans out of the town so they can rob the bank, the guy in the tower with the sniper rifle, well, it's a Mosin.

Re: m44 stock question

Thanks to all for the replies. The greenish area is about in the middle of the stock, just about where your cheek would rest when firing. There is also some yellow and brown in there. It's actually kind of pretty. I don't remember seeing any green around the sling slot, and he did not sand the stock...

Re: Universal Background Checks and Crime

Interesting reading. However, as the old saying goes, "figures can lie and liars can figure". Any data can be "repurposed" to whatever the presenter wants it to be. I'm sure we've all seen examples of that. I do agree that no matter how many laws are passed, they will do nothing to stop criminals fr...
