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: P38 under French control.

You know, I have been rooting for that number and I can not really find it.. But just looking at the serial numbers If this is true the last French p38s is 500L http://www.p38guns.com/Lasttwo.htm And the German stopped making them in the Mid Fs and the French started somewhere in the Gs Then there m...

Re: Is this really a P38 SVW??

Desirability depends I guess on the owner, this one went to a guy they call Frenchie... He wears a Beret, he smokes only Gauloises cigarettes, he has a thick French accent and he will buy all French guns like this... So price is no object for his.. to him this is desirable.. Go figure..

Re: Is this really a P38 SVW??

French-made examples of svw45 frames with ac43 slides are known to exist and will not necessarily have the 4-point star on the slide, but will likely have the star on the barrel and/or locking block. Bottom line is that the P.38 in question is almost certainly a post-war French pistol, but the Walt...

Ahhh The vagaries of collecting

Re: Indian 303 Enfield made in the 1980s

I am a little confused, are you talking about the Enfield 7.62 nato 2a & 2a1 that were made back in the 1960s - 70s as the ones having problems???

Re: Indian 303 Enfield made in the 1980s

Outstanding Mr Enfield..

Any idea of the number they made and who they were made for??? and Why 303??

I do love that crest, I mean its either Cobras and a Tiger or one of those nasty Flying monkeys that that Old Witch sent after Dorothy & gang. Either way that is kick butt...

Indian 303 Enfield made in the 1980s

Was shown an Indian Enfield Mk III that was Marked RFI 1986. The rifle was in 303. I thought Indian had stopped making Mk III in 303 in the 60s. Anyone know more about these??

Re: Decent start to a collection????

If you wanted those 4 guns, you are spending 600 each for them.. I think the Garand is worth that, the 03 is worth that, the Jungle Carbine is close to high priced.. Depends really if you want to get all of those for your collection.. But I would not buy them as a deal unless you wanted each of thos...

Re: Is this really a P38 SVW??

Many Many Many thanks for your insites.. They must have made a lot of those AC43 slides if they were still around after the war for the French to use. Per the gun in question, I did look at it in person and there was no star on the barrel or locking block By the way I do like the Interarms Gray Ghos...

Thanks for all the work... Deep down I do not feel this is right... But you know it was a stop gap measure, wonder how long these were designed to last..??
