My Pops and many family member were in the 1st Filipino Regiment, some were Alamo Scouts, my dad was an NCO in charge of a rifle squad in support or 2 M1917 MGs. A great man. My cousin has collected much info on their action. They never spoke of any of it when we were young. The 1st and 2nd were at ...

18.5 inch SKS

Hi Fellas, Anyone out there have or shot SKS rifles that were commercially modified to 18.5 inches? Just curious as to their accuracy, if they're marginally "better", like the 16.5 inch Paratroopers usually are. I'm asking cause I recently scored on a Bubba job cut to that length, without a front si...

Re: Garand found locally. Educate me, please.

Did I miss the price? Price is everything. I picked up my onliest Garand last year, Winchester receiver, SA barrel, and some Winny parts, $1100 bucks with 800 rounds on strippers. I was happy. PAX

Re: Mossberg M44

I listened to you guys and got a 44US, not a 44US a,b,c or d (commercial versions). CMP is out and GunBroker doesn't have one under $300 in decent shape, so I checked out Rimfire central and got one there for a respectable price in decent condition. The work Mossberg did on the rifling back in the ...

Re: Best m1a mags to buy

I've got a new 10 round Springfield mag that I'm never going to use. No gun or plans for one. Has the Crest. Prolly the same type that came with your rig. You can have it for 10 bucks shipped if you want it. PAX

Public Security Forces rescue

Hi Fellas, My onliest PSF SKS that I did the best to save (might have posted it already??). It was hideous when I got it a while back. The rifle came in an ATI Monty with cheese grater HG, and a receiver cover see thru scope mount (two original numbered pieces forever gone), but mechanically it's ma...
