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: Winchester M1 Garand

Well Fellas, I was surprised at the rapid replies I received from the various Boards I'm on. I got this list sent to me, and went with #5 just to have it if/when needed. 1. SA 6(or 8?)-48, TE=3, MW=3, chromed gas cylinder pads........$90 2. SA 9-64, TE=3+, MW=4.....$75 3. SA 3-44, TE=4+, MW=4......$...

Winchester M1 Garand

Hi Fellas,

I've got a Winchester receivered M1 with a shot out Springfield barrel. Has some other Winchester stamped parts. What are my options to get it to be a decent shooter? It's my onliest M1. Thanks PAX

Re: what is best

With an SKS "BEST" can be the luck of the draw. As far as accuracy goes, most all Paratroopers are a tad "more accurate", than any standard length rifle out to 100 yards. I suspect that it has to do with harmonics AND a fresh crown. A pinned barrel is as likely to be as good a shooter as a screwed b...

Re: Va has fallen.

Man, you VA guys better throw down some voter pressure. I'm in Kali and the battle has been endless. Good luck, but I don't like the feel of it, it's cancerous. Seems like some States are trying to out regulate Kali & the north eastern seaboard. PAX

Re: SAD NEWS

Friends, the Second Amendment, and in fact the entire Constitution, means only what 5 of the nine judges on the Supreme Court say it means. We do not have to speculate what WILL happen if any of the "loyal opposition" candidates appoint judges! This is true...but what about enforcement? I'm in Kali...

Re: SAD NEWS

It is upsetting. But would be much tougher in the US, as we're the ONLY country that has it built into our Constitution. Also there's something like 3.2 fire arms per person here. PAX

After doing more research, I pulled my trade offer. Apparently, $1700-$2200 is more in line with reality. PAX

Thanks R,

It's a 1917 but it's been reblued. I pulled the Alby out of the offer. If it flies ok, if not ok. PAX

Luger advice...

Hi Fellas, I've come up on an artillery Luger with 1 mag, holster, & stock. The iron itself is very nice with matching numbers where exposed. The rig has a tool & cleaning rod, but the holster & stock have to be reproduction, as they're virtually new. Sticker price is $3495, but I threw out some SKS...

Re: Midway Movie Review

My son and I went and saw it. Both of us are aviation nuts (I've got some Stearman time) and have a vast die cast collection. We were pleased on it's accuracy, even if they didn't show the Wildcat's mixing it up. It won't win any academy awards, but it was good to see the correct equipment, more or ...

Re: Chinese [0306] Arsenal SKS

as I stated before there is only 2 ways to mount a scope ; that is either attaching it directly on the side of the receiver or on the rear sight, those are the only 2 places on the gun where a scope mount would be rock solid and you won't lose zero There's another way that's proven. You can use a r...

Re: Chinese [0306] Arsenal SKS

With everything matching from that arsenal, I wouldn't try any scope mounting that would mar the finish on your wife's rig. I'd get another, uglier SKS, and turn the Khyber Pass boys loose on it. Fugly, mishmatched SKSs can still shoot good. I've always liked apertures and I've got SKS iron sighted ...
