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: 1896/11...

+1,

I like the 1911 long rifles and the 1896/11's more than the K-31s (although I like the K-31's too). My old eyes appreciate the longer sight radius. I have a Private series also (P Marked ). Great rifles! I can't say enough good things about them.

Re: SOG Southern Ohio Guns is history

I'm sorry to hear that.They always treated me good. I bought a lot of stuff from them over the years, even picked up 2 SKS "paratroopers" back in October of this year. I kinda figured they were going under because the pickings got sparse at the end and it was a lot of odds and ends on sale at real g...

We have a new & self avowed Socialist group rising within the Democrats & they seem to be welcoming of it.

Re: M-59/66A1 SKS...

I got myself a Yugoslavian M-59/66A1 SKS rifle this weekend, its all matching serial numbers, so fair everything looks great on it, just lots of cosmline... Watch out and take care. Those sks's are addictive. Pretty soon you will be buying blanks and inert grenades to shoot off of the yugo. Then th...

Thanks Charles for the update on the American Rifleman show. Unfortunately I cut cable and all paid TV services years ago. Maybe I can find it on the internet.

Re: Blind Date with short Chinese Twins

I had a friend who hates bayos give me 2 paratrooper bayos. Sweet! I also called SOG back the other day because I saw where they had the cracked stock ones for 209 dollars but they were all sold out. I'm Sorry I missed out on that one.

Blind Date with short Chinese Twins

I had ordered 2 of the papratrooper SKS's SOG had the first day they went on sale. Some of the rifles had no lugs and had cracked stocks so I'm glad I jumped on it early. Both of the rifles I got had the bayonet lugs, the proper cut for the paratrooper spike bayo, no cracks in stock, cleaning rod, c...

Re: Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

Charles, thanks for the info on condition. I had wanted a service grade so it sounds like is likely. I'm waiting on pins and needles to see if I filled out everything correctly and get assigned a lottery number. I hope I will get one this year. They will be mixmasters (like most garands) but it is w...

Re: Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

No, but it was because I already have several WW1 & WW2 1911 & 1911a1 pistols in better condition than what I think the service grade pistols will be. People are grousing that $1,050 for the service grade is too much but I'm firmly convinced that nobody is likely to lose any money on a genuine USGI...

Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

Today was the deadline for the packets to be postmarked. I sent mine to CMP the first day (Sept 4th) you could. My Dad carried one of those in the European theater in WWII and he passed away last year so I really wanted to get one. I had thought that it would be hundreds of thousands of people sendi...
