Re: Pics of 91TS nose band please

Thanks guys. I have been very busy and just now had a chance to get back here. I appreciate all of your help. I have decided to modify Carcano rifle band and solder the swivel onto my nosecap. The swivel part of the band looks exactly like the swivel on the 91TS nosecap and should not be a major und...

Re: Pics of 91TS nose band please

Thanks for the response.
The top one. The bottom one is a 91/24TS. I believe.
I just need some clear close up pics of the nose cap area especially, the sling swivel.

Pics of 91TS nose band please

I have a 91TS and it is missing the front sling swivel. It appears that it was possibly just soldered on to the band.

Since they (nose bands or, swivels) seem to be made of "unobtainium" I would like to look at some complete nose caps to see if I could replicate it.

Thanks a lot guys.

Re: where did you spend 4th of July 1976?

Ft Sill, Oklahoma. Fire Direction Specialist school. I think we got a pass, went up to Lake Elmer Thomas and consumed 3.2 beer and hot dogs.

Re: Free barrels @BCA

I am hearing that this offer is still in effect. I thought that they were out of free barrels but, apparently not. Here is the link if you are interested. https://www.bearcreekarsenal.com/vererans-day-barrel-giveaway?utm_source=Bear+Creek+Arsenal+Newsletter&utm_campaign=79b6694a88-12%2F29%2F2017-+NE...

Re: Shooting 45 Acp out of a 45 LC revolver who needs a cylinder

No reason other than I have all of the .45 LC ammo I need and I would only consider shooting like this as an expedient method. If I need to shoot .45 ACP in a revolver I just use my shaved MKVI Webley.

Free barrels @BCA

So, how many Surplus Rifle Forum veterans took advantage of Bear Creek Arsenals free barrels for veterans offer over the Veterans Day weekend?
I have a 16" 1-8 .223 Wylde barrel on the way. I only had to pay $10 shipping. :clap:

Re: Shooting 45 Acp out of a 45 LC revolver who needs a cylinder

I have seen it done with black "O" rings. It works but, I don't do it.
I would in an emergency though.

Re: Unissued, matching late 7th series Type 99 in last ditch configuration

Just chalked it, back lit it, used a magnifying glass and determined that it is a Nagoya Series 8. Thanks for keeping me straight slowbob.

p.s. This is the mark I found:

Re: Unissued, matching late 7th series Type 99 in last ditch configuration

So, what would that mean if I go home tonight and do in fact verify that mine is a Series 7? It probably isn't but, I could have sworn it was when I glanced at it last night.

Working 12 hour shifts doesn't give me the time I would like have to really check things like this out.

Re: Unissued, matching late 7th series Type 99 in last ditch configuration

It appears to have the same markings as the 3rd pic above before and after the serial number. My eyes are getting old and I could be wrong so, I'll re-examine it again tonight. Also, if a "Series" is 99,999 or, 100,000 rifles (depending on your reference) why would you say that they could not be in ...
