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: 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)

Re: RTFI!

If the tumble weeds aren't provided in the bag of charcoal, you may have to buy them separately. That's probably where they make their money. There's always an angle to get more money out of you.

Re: Bayonet identification

OK, disregard what I said. It is the VZ24 because the blade is upside down. It just seems to be an awful long blade for a VZ24.

The scabbard still looks wrong.

Re: Another berthier from Vietnam

I got one from the guy who brought it back and he tossed all of the paperwork so,.....all I got was the gun and the story.

Re: Bayonet identification

It is a VZ-23 Long bayonet that was issued and used on the VZ24 rifle among others.

I agree, the scabbard does not look correct.

Re: Is this authentic? What's its story? What's it worth?

If you don't ever intend to sell it and get the full value that you could realize for such a piece, polish away. The guys are giving you some good advise but, nothing says that you have to take it.

Re: MAKAROV loading assist tool

Nice. Although I have never noticed that loading my Makarov magazines as being much of a chore, I think I will make one anyway. Thank.

Re: Glad to See the Forum Back

Now I feel like Newby again. At least now we have an excuse to tell the same old stories over again and post the same old pictures without people thinking we're senile.

Just a pic to get started:
