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: M1911 added to collection.

Hi KneverKnew

Congrates on your aquisition

The 31 will be the year that the rifle was retired from active service.
all of mine have these various dates on the receiver.
Check to see if you have the letter P stamped next to it.

Re: Swiss Ammo Pouch

The pouch was modfied by adding wooden blocks to support the GP90 6 Round Clips.
Loose rounds were carried in the loops on the front of the pouch.

Swiss Ammo Pouch

Stumbled across this leather Swiss Ammo pouch

Manufactured in 1887 for use with their Vetterlis, they were later modified to hold the GP90 6 round clips for the 1889 Straight Pull
