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.

french 1892 date.

If an 1892 revolver has a serial number G prefix, what time frame was it made? No barrel date from the owner as of yet

Re: Carcano 91/38

alright, it matches the date on the receiver and also matches the serial number as well. Everything on the rifle appears to be matched,

Carcano 91/38

I have an italian 91/38 carbine in 6.5x52mm. Looks to be in very good condition. Barrel looks mint and bolt matches the receiver. There is what appears to be an arsenal stamp on the stock. Is the stamp a refurbishment stamp or is it an original factory stamp that was put on when the rifle was manufa...

Enfield M1917 Rifle

I managed to pick up a m1917 rifle back in 2013 for 275 dollars after tax (unsporterized). When i asked the shop owner how long the rifle was on the website he said less than 20 seconds. When i managed to go pick up the rifle i was blown away by how it looked, all it was missing was a rear sling swi...

Mas 36-51

I've had a mas 36-51 for years and i believe it was once an original purpose made mas 36 that was upgraded to the 51 designation. The marking on the receiver looks more like a 36_51, the dash is definitely not centered and looks more like an underscore and the serial number itself isnt one of the do...

Starline .455 Webley brass

Does anyone have any experience with the new production starline brass for .455 webley they are making? Is it good quality and worth the money? Or should i simply stick to my fiocchi brass for now?

Re: .455 Webley reloads

I'd have to check but, IIRC I chose a light load of Bullseye in mine(probably what I had on hand)? Steve currently im using hodgdon HP-38, very light load since the casings are not very long but it seems to do the trick, next time i end up loading up some loads for my colt new service i will load u...

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

What parts of the pistol (particularly the type 1) were serial numbered, so far i know the barrel, slide, frame, main spring housing, grip safety and hammer match. Is there anything else i should disassemble and check or did i nail all the spots?

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

So i finally got my Radom in the mail and i am pleased to say that it is all matching where the parts are numbered, no mis-matched parts on the pistol and i was wrong initially. It is in fact a VIS P35(P). The stamping was just too faint for me to see on the photograph. I paid just under 1150 Canadi...

forming 11mm gras

Is it an easy process to form 11x59mm gras? I have been told 348 winchester is a good parent case but in Canada thats hard to come by, is it easy to form the brass from 50-110? Is there a way to form the brass without the appropriate dies? Can i use a 45 acp sizer to form the neck and then fire form...

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

Obviously a very comprehensive collecting area of world war firearms. Once the VIS clears RCMP transfer and i get it in my possession i will check to see if the numbers are all matching and do a thorough cleaning and strip of the internals to make sure the parts are all in good shape.

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

You're talking about the second "P" in P35P, right? That second P (again, according to Berger) was indeed initially stamped on the slide but went away shortly after the first 10,000 units were made. It supposedly stood for "Polen", or "Poland" in English. Also, most if not all of the VIS-35 pistols...

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

was the P35P actually stamped on the firearm or was it just the paper designation for the firearm in the supply chain? The shop i bought it from has another one for sale in alot harsher condition that has the takedown lever as well so a type 1 but it also is missing the P designation.

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

she looks like she has the relief cuts but is simply missing the P. I'm all but lost right now, too many variants for 1 pistol over the years. She's a 3 lever gun so my best observation is she is a Type 1 overall
