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.

No, please to not sell yourself short, You may well have been a Great Roman.. But the merchants at the sigillaria would have short changed you to death.. :twocents-mytwocents:

Re: P38 under French control.

$ value is such a impractical way to judge a collectors items, The story behind the item is so much better..

It certainly does have that new "old gun" feel all surplus weapons have to me. Can't wait to get to range with it, think I'll put her through the paces against my 1917 USGI S&W revolver.
That will be nice..

I highly recommend the Mark IV, the ease of disassembly is mind-boggling compared to the earlier Marks.
Both pistol look very nice... But please elaborate on what makes it easier...???

I like the stag grips also..

Re: Manstopper

Nice, when was your Tanter made?? .577 pistol ammo is one of the few rounds that makes a 45 round look malnourished.

Re: Picked this up. Thoughts?

I have no idea why I'm so curious about the life of this rifle, I just am :-). Must be the dreary Winter here in Wisconsin. Spavac The coin dates from 1951, Who ever chrome plated it had to have spent some money doing it.. My guess is a vfw honor guard or something of that flavor. You are not the o...

Re: Picked this up. Thoughts?

. The R broad arrow F on the left side of the action certainly has significance. The broad arrow (according to a quick Google search) refers to ownership by the British government. I couldn't find a reference to the R and F perhaps the Royal Fusiliers? There's bound to be an Anglophile on the forum...

Re: Picked this up. Thoughts?

So, are you saying the one in the photos IS a Buckingham Palace Guard ceremonial LE? If it is AND it's yours, how did you come by it? Obviously, its in pristine condition but I must say that it's a little too bling'd out for me. Are all of the metal components chromed? The lighting on the photos se...

Ya, I think the "brown/black paint" definitely needs to go! I can't really imagine why anyone would do that? Pretty sure that the Buckingham Palace Guards would have done a better job of it, Yeah I do not think it is a Buckingham Palace Guard gun, because I am sure that is one of those rifles. Its ...

Re: 1911 toy pistol identification request

Oh there are no catalogs like we know them for these early toys.. Many are bootlegs of bootlegs.. To be honest in these days it was not uncommon to make a metal part in one part of the world.. Ship that part to a factory/assemble site for final fitting.. Amazing how international trade was at work i...

Re: 1911 toy pistol identification request

I remember seeing these in my misspent youth of toy collecting.. This was made in the latter 1800s.. 1870s - 1880s. I do not know if you will ever find a manufacturer there is no name on them. Least all the ones I saw, I always like these transitions toys half wood half cast iron.. Speaking of great...
