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: m-1 Carbine questions

When the Marines came ashore in Vietnam they carried M14 rifles. They did not get M16's till later on. The Navy still has M14's on board many of it's ships. Used more for mine destruction then repelling boarders. But Navy bases had M14 rifles for use by Base Police at least into the mid 80's if not ...

Re: French Rifles in German hands

Lots of conscripts from different countries were armed with French weapons like these. That and some clerks, mechanics, laborers or any other second line units got these rifles. Some German navy units had French rifles too.

Re: 7.62MM Garand

The Naval version of the Garand in 7.62 was issued to the Navy rifle teams and were not used on board ships. The Navy used a chamber insert to convert the 30-06 to 7.62. But sometimes those would come out stuck to a fired case. Later ones had their barrels changed to 7.62.

Re: 30-06 blank identification help please!

Blanks for 30-06 are in demand by may VFW lodges as they have a hard time getting them for funerals they attend for those members that have passed on. I have donated hundreds of these to different lodges in the past. My supply is gone now and I know those I had went to a good cause.

Re: First Carbine!

You do have a nice post war rebuilt carbine. It is more then adequate to take a deer out to 75 yards. Bullet placement is the key to any successful hunt. Most ammo companies make a good soft point for the carbine and a deer is a thin skinned animal.

Re: Low serial numbers, do they add value?

If a low serial number carbine has not been rebuilt then yes the low number will add value to it. But if it has been rebuilt then the value is the same as any other rebuilt carbine.

Double headed screw

Can anyone ID a double headed screw that is through the stock of most Lebel and Berthier rifles. It sits above the rear of the trigger guard. And would anyone know where I may find one? Thanks.

Re: Powder in 1942 30-06?

Dupont IMR 4895 was the powder used by the US military to load all 30-06 M2 and M1 ammunition during WW2. When the war ended there were so many hundreds of tons of IMR 4895 around and the government sold it as surplus at pennies on the dollar. Hodgdon started buying a little at a time of this powder...

Re: 1935A

Mark I have used Wolff springs for just about all my firearms pistol, revolver and rifles that need spring replacement. I ordered one for the A and one for the S but found that the guide just does not come apart readily.

Re: 1935A

One thing that is a bit puzzling is how to remove the recoil spring from the guide rod. It is not able to slid off the guide and I would like to replace it with a new one. IT looks like there is a pin on ne end. Is this drifted out to then remove the spring? As to the rifling in the barrel. I don't ...

Re: 1935A

I only use my cut down brass or some Bertrum in 7.65 that I bought years ago. I had to use .32 acp dies which did not work very well at all. So I just stopped reloading for the 7.65. I recently was able to get in on a multiple purchase of Lee custom made dies in 7.65 long. Now I use these to load al...

Re: 1935A

Oh yes I have seen those posts. I am not new to the 7.65 Long cartridge and have dies for it. The worst part is the exterior finish and I am thinking of having it reblued. I do have a 1935 S that I shoot and enjoy. The slide does seem to be a bit on the loose side and not like my 1935 S. Almost like...
