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: SKS cowboy companion

any gun is worth "keeping around", especially military or their clones. SKSs; like the Chinese, Russians haven't been imported for more then 20 years, you can forget about any imports now or in the future. so what is here is here, and the value isn't going to go down, it's just going to rise. you ar...

Re: SKS cowboy companion

it's nice you got the original wood stock :), most people threw them away when they went with a after market stock like I said that receiver cover scope mount did not come on any SKS. no SKS that were imported came with that kind of scope mount receiver cover like that. those were sold separately as...

Re: SKS cowboy companion

welcome to the board :) first off congrats on picking up that SKS at a unheard of price of 100 bucks when you say, "where can I find the correct scope mount and scope?", there is no correct scope or rings for a receiver cover scope mount. those were after market Chinese made scope cover mounts that ...

Re: Made a 30-06 17 round mag for Fn49

great job :). I tip my hat off to folks who can come up with ideas and make them happen. I made a few things for myself that are not available on the market, by modifying existing products that are readily available this jan I made a M1 GARAND clip loader, but I still have a couple bugs to work out,...

Re: m-1 Carbine questions

So, it was possible for M-1 Carbines to be still fielded by units into1979? 1982? troops started to be pulled out of viet nam shortly after the peace treaty was signed in 1973. don't forget, not every M16s came out of VN, a whole bunch was left for the SVN. so whatever M16 came out were either put ...

Re: m-1 Carbine questions

I wonder how long it took to switch units from M-1s to M-16s. it probably took several years, rifles had to go back through Anniston or other arsenals to be refurbish and checked, from there it would have took a very long and complex trip through the supply chains for it to be fielded to NG units o...

Re: m-1 Carbine questions

welcome :mrgreen:

can't help you on the ammo.

I don't know about the air force, but Army national guard units were still using carbines and Garands during the early 70s, on campus during the VN protesters, so it is very well possible they still had them in the mid to late 70s

Re: M1911 not firing when the hammer drops.

my advice, don't monkey with it, contact ATI tell them the problem you're having and tell them you're sending it back for warranty repair work. let them figure it out and fix it or send you a replacement pistol. you should not have to put your dime or time into a product that should work out of the ...

Re: 1962 Surplus ad, what to get if you had 35 bucks

Lets not forget the flip side of the coin: The average family income in 1962 was just $6670! That works out to $128.27 a week or $3.21 an hour. don't think it was that high, unless you were upper-middle income or had a white collar job. in any event, that was before they took out federal, state and...

Re: Why are guys going crazy over 300 black out

why? $$$$$$$$, there are still a lot of people in the firearm community that take what these hack "gun writers" write as the "be all and know all "experts"" and manufactures know it. throw some bucks their way and they will write glowing reviews for their product.

Re: k31 Overpay or a Steal?

Well, they were $59 at Aim and $79 on Black Friday at Dunhams back around 2005. But they seem to go for crazy prices say around $550-600 at WI gun shows at todays prices. the key word is WERE since they haven't been imported for a very long time, what is here is here, and a lot of folks, like me :)...
