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.

Veterans Day

I like to wish my fellow veterans a happy and safe Veterans Day. I've spent many a Veterans Day, stateside, stationed overseas, or deployed to combat zones. We have personnel serving in hot areas right now, who won't have the ability to have this day off. To them I wish they have a safe and peaceful...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

Looks like the USAF dropped the ball on this one. I think the form asks for a "dishonorable discharge" not "bad conduct discharge" as the news reports. His court martial was a felony, so the USAF should have reported it. No real good excuse here. No need for more gun laws either. That guy was a nut...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

According to the article I read he did not pass a Texas background check to carry, if so he wouldn't have passed a check to own a weapon. Could be he owned the weapons before the BCD and for whatever reason they were never turned it. If I recall correctly the form you fill out for the background che...

Re: Southernland springs Texas shooting

Another point of blame for them is that he was prior USAF, and they love to say that military members are trained to kill. So an ex military member with an assault weapon, the anti-gun nerds will have a field day with it. Prior and current military will get dragged over the coals. My heart goes out ...

Re: 1930 Finn Captured Dragoon, original numbers matching

Damn I like this one, sweet example. I can't tell, using a cell phone right now, are the serial numbers the same font? Amazing it stayed together the way it is, with all the Izhevsk marked parts. The wear seems to indicate the parts have been together for some time. Love to have one like it in my co...

Damn, possession of stolen US Military/Government equipment, theft of said equipment, oh and don't forget his unregistered silencer....Gee I wonder why the Feds have it in for him! 48 years old with each count carrying a 10 year maximum sentance, so 30 years IF they run consecutively.

Re: Milsurp collector age

I bought my first milsurp in January of 2011, I was 44 and had been retired just 15 months at the time. I bought a beat up Turkish Mauser at my wife's insisting, and that started me collecting. I had always loved milsurps but was not aware they were as affordable and available as they are until we s...

Re: Want to know more about my Ruby and making it functional

Another possibility is the spring is shot. Really need to take it apart and take pictures of the inside. Might need to measure the firing pin and spring to see if they are worn or broken. Other than that it becomes a guessing game. ETA: Was thinking after I posted, firing pin might be missing altoge...

Doesn’t fire. Seems to cock and the trigger releases but no bang.
Firing pin trimmed down? A lot of bring backs ended up with the firing pins trimmed at some point.

Re: Help with 1903 that has no S/N? Lots of pics!

Stupid question time.....Can the OP have a SN engraved on it to make it legal by current standards? Yes, from what I read the BATF encouraged people to do so for identification purpose if the firearm is stolen. Even though the firearm fall in the rare category of not requiring one. Owen PS: There a...

Re: Opioid problem

True for me also, the meds are a necessary evil, otherwise I wouldn't make it through the day without pain. My ICD makes me ineligible for RF style injections and procedures. Surgery is in my near future, as the flare ups seem to come more frequently and much more severe. Just hope when it comes to ...
