Re: The picture find of a lifetime

Fantastic find, you are a lucky man. My father and uncle were both in WWII in the Pacific. My Uncle in the Coast Guard attached to the Seabees, my father in the Marines landed on Guadalcanal. Only have one picture of each, my uncle in his sailor suit just after getting back after the war, my dad wit...

Re: Nothing to do......

Now that you've completed the firearm maintenance, you can conduct classes on disassembly and reassembly for the grand kids :) Fortunately, or unfortunately, nothing has really changed here. Still working, wife still working, and as we are basically homebodies when not working, no loss there. Still ...

Re: Savage 1907.

On the positive side, this was my first visit to the C&Rsenal webiste. Wonderful videos! Very informative, rich in history and detail, great photography, and they cover a lot of neglected C&R firearms. Yep, one can spend a lot of time perusing their channel. I enjoyed learning the 1907s role in WW1...

Re: Savage 1907.

If one is interested, C&Rsenal has a pretty comprehensive video on YouTube on the 1907.

Spoiler: (Mae has no problem racking the slide) :D

Re: Savage 1907.

I own one, and it's a cool little pistol. No screws, and complete disassembly with no tools. However, you need a dairyman's handshake to cock the damned thing . Check out the 1920s ads where Savage marketed the pistol to women. If I was in charge of Savage, I'd have sent this one back to the engine...

Re: Smith Corona 1903A3

I am looking for a sporter stock now. The wood is pretty nice. I haven't seen anything that makes me think it was a drill rifle. I haven't shot it yet. The gy who had it was an Infantry and artillery instructor Master Gunnery Sergeant after he served in the Pacific in WWII. I was surprised when I s...

Re: Savage 1907.

Great little pistols. As I have a fondness for the .32ACP i picked one up a few years ago. Very interesting design, striker fired with a "hammer". The staggered box magazine was also novel for the time. "Ten shots quick" was the motto promoted by the spokesperson for Savage, Bat Masterson. Imagine, ...

Re: Smith Corona 1903A3

That is the rare 1903A3-BBA1 sniper variant.

Almost none were known to exist at the end of the war, however they have been discovered in increasing numbers since. Little is known about them as no real documentation was kept on their manufacture.

Re: Federal "Real" photo I.D. to buy BULLETS! (in MD) WTAF?

Largely, "REAL" ID (which is a set of federally approved standards for issuance of a secure form of identification) driver's licenses are directed at the illegal immigration problem. Its inception goes back to the fall out from 9/11, and the instituted requirements for secure ID to be presented in c...

Re: What's In My Barrel?

The only problem with sweets, which is great product, is the high ammonia content. You can't safely use it for long term soaking because of that & nickelling needs the long soak because you have to break the chemical bond which is what makes it so tough to remove. I have sweets & use it at the rang...

Re: What's In My Barrel?

+1 on Sweet's. I have used it for years to remove copper fouling, always with good results.

Dish soap, , a quart of Mobile 1, a bottle of Hoppes #9 and a bottle of Sweet's make up the total inventory of my gun cleaning oil and solvent supplies and I never want for anything more.
