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: Bought the story...the rifle was cheap

How well does the Bolt work compared to some of the M95 and m90 conversions.. I have heard people say that guns got alot of the Bolt stiffness when they were reworked and converted.. This is closer to the Original configuration. And has anyone ever seen and M90/24 converted to 8mm.. I have a real t...

Bought the story...the rifle was cheap

Hi Guys, Many moons ago, when Kali was a free state, and cash & carry reigned supreme, I ran across this little guy garage sailing. The little old lady that had it out, said her grampa "Brought it back from over there...he was a Doughboy". I was vaguely familiar with the action, but had only seen lo...

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

I think it was "Guns & Ammo" in the '50s-'60s era, the facing page was always a surplus dealer "ACME" or ?? $1500 got you a P51, they had half tracks, deuce & 1/2s, jeeps, tons of gear for dirt. In '59 my pops bought a 1100 sq. ft. flat top tract home for $13,500 @ 2% on a WWII G.I. note. In '78 the...

Re: New To Me, Ishapore 2A1

I've got a couple, a '65 & a '67. I like them. http://i895.photobucket.com/albums/ac159/adpax/DSCN0807_zps3e3b4341.jpg One was pre-Bubbad that I worked over a little. It's salvageable, but doesn't bother me the way it's set up, zero at 500 yards, 5 rounds. I've put a Blackhawk lace on cheek riser si...

Re: 59/66 SKS Restoration

Good going on the resto. The ferrule is going to be the toughie. They're getting scarce. Might see if a Tapco gas tube and HG will swap out for wood. They pop up on fleabay but are $pendy. PAX

Re: Modern war ship question

I can't say for sure, but I think the mentality is to not take missile hits, by using defensive stand off systems. That and the types of engagements modern ships are designed for aren't WWII style. PAX

Re: TOO BAD

The last time I went shooting was 4 years ago. We shot the .357 & .41 mag, with my (now) ex-nephew in law, active Marine, Beretta instructor. Before that was 6 years ago, running a couple recently acquired SKSs. I got a practical example of negative sear engagement. Currently I'm no fewer than 3 doz...

Thanks for the links, ffuries.

Eventually I'll learn it's mechanicals, and what/where to look, but right now I'm in midstream of too many projects.

Hi Fellas, Finally took the plunge after getting feed back from several boards. Upon examining the specimen, using my acquired research data, this is what I found during the cursory once over: DMC/CMP rifle purchased in April '96 and owned by him since Owner sponsored by Tour Of Duty out of Visalia,...

NorKal FFLs give up

Hi Guys,

Anyone in the Modesto area looking for stuff? Couple FFLs are rolling up their tent and have some inventory, accessories, and junk. Shotgun Johnny's (the 29th is the last day) and AAA Guns & Lock (Ripon-end of the year). Oakdale went from 5 shops to 1 over the last couple years. PAX

Hi Fellas, I was rootin around and dug up these old pictures. I haven't taken many since the Bucket crashed. A few kinda recent acquisitions and past projects. I've run across just a couple Sinobanians guns but as of late, SKSs have become scarce AND $pendy. Many got Bubbad up when they were cheap a...
