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: 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:

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 ...

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

Ok, I checked mine last night and, although, it is the same series and manufacturer, the serial numbers are quite a way apart. In fact, mine is only 4 digits not, 5. OP, your's is 95635 and mine is 5497 but, mine looks exactly like yours except for a couple of slight dings in my stock. The story on ...

Re: hello my old friends and new ones.

Welcome back.

I don't get here as much as I used to, on the first forum. After losing all of the posts we had all made it kinda' depressed me.

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

It's not a true last ditch gun. It's known as a "Substitute Standard". It was made using less material and abbreviated manufacturing methods. Examples: Not finish machining the bolt knob, a wooden buttplate, a fixed rear sight etc.. I think that I have this guns brother at home. I will check the ser...

Re: Your Favorite .22

I enjoy my AR15A1 with my M261 adapter installed in it. It is amazingly accurate. (Yes, it has an A2 stock and pistol grip on it in the pic. That has been retro'd back to A1)
