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: Signs you are growing old.

I enlisted in the Navy in 1970 out of patriotism.

You know you’re old when someone yell’s “Duck and Cover” and you look for your school desk.

Beretta Olympia .22 Trainer

I thought I’d posted this before; it’s a late 1950s - early 1960s Beretta .22 LR Training Rifle used to train the police and military basic marksmanship. A unique design, copied from an earlier Walther Rifle. It is a dual action rifle; closing the bolt makes it a magazine fed bolt action; leaving th...

Although Browning has stopped production

There are still gear High Power deals out there to be found! My birthday was Tuesday; number 66! In honor of that I went on the prowl for a birthday present; something different then my usual 1911 or (lately) a S&W or Colt classic revolver. Although I didn’t steal it, I didn’t get hurt either; but I...

Re: Greek Army Colt Army Special

RWS thanks for the info! I suspect that the sale went through with the “assistance” of the US Government - hence the US Ordnance Inspector’s mark.

Re: Greek Army Colt Army Special

Over on the Colt Forum, the member who steered me to the auction had this to say about his Greek Army Special: Seriously, mine does not have the inspector's mark and is Epsilon Sigma 11172. It also is one year later than yours (1915) and has a matte (Parkerized?) finish that appears to be period to ...

Greek Army Colt Army Special

I belong to ColtForm.com (as well as other gun forums go figure). A member who collects Military and LE Agency marked guns posted a Gun Broker link for a Greek Army marked Colt Army Special chambered in .38 Special. Colt made the Army special in various calibers (.22 LR, .38 Special, .32-20, .38-200...

"Another" Colombian added to the collection!

I posted earlier about my Colombian Madsen bolt action rifle that was bought by the Colombian Military but probably languished in a warehouse before entering the surplus market - unissued and not used; probably the nicest "surplus" gun to hit the market. I am a member of Coltforums; and one of the m...

Re: SBS semi-auto

A correction of sorts.

They are not short barreled shotguns. The BATFE has determined that they are a firearm but not a firearm that falls under the NFA!

Re: Swedish Husqvarna made Browning 1907 Clone

An update, albeit late! Last week I went to the range with the gun in .380. The gun functioned flawlessly with the range ammo I have. However, this gun screams .380 is an insult to shoot out of me! Periodically I would check Gun Broker and E-Bay for an illusive barrel; bam, there it was, an "armorer...

Re: Swedish M1907 Pistol

Butch - the frame is marked .380; the barrel has a spacer at the front of the chamber. If I can remove it then I will have a all matching gun!

Swedish M1907 Pistol

I have a very nice Swedish Model 1907 Pistol, chambered in .380 ACP. These Browning Model 1903 Clones - made by Husqvarna first with license from Browning then their own version was originally chambered in 9x20mm aka 9 mm Browning Long; it also came with the "correct" holster and three magazines. I ...
