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: A little humor.

Many years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The doctor who treated me is with a group of physicians who specialize in afflictions involving nether region plumbing, and I can say without too much exaggeration that his skill saved my life. While enough time has passed that reoccurrence is un...

He has at least 3 Purple Hearts in addition to his Silver Star and Bronze Star and landed in Normandy in June 1944. Will try and compose a known list of his awards. His promotions to of...

Named WWII M1 Helmet Liner

First Saturday of the month after the local gunshow (Didn't find anything I couldn't live without), the wife and I hit a local antique store. As we were leaving I spied a helmet tucked in a corner. Now I know the vast majority of helmets at antique stores are Vietnam era M1 helmets, but this one was...

The second link was an interesting and informative reading. So I did recall something correctly or close to correctly!

Re: grinding question

I have a K98 that is an Balkan capture, I guess that is the correct term, it doesn't have the X on the reciever. Some of the markings have been pinged and the ones on the top of the reciever was ground. In regards to your question IIRC some IDF Mausers were completely sanitized and some not. Somebod...

Love the grain on the grips. My ASM Navy doesn't even have the engraving on the cylinder.

Re: Nagant revolver

1944 Izhevsk without the nasty billboard import markings, nice. As you said I am not seeing a refurbishment marking anywhere, I'll wait to see what the Brain Trust has to say. I see the import markings on the barrel, I like it better than mine, mine has the import markings partly covering the arsena...

Re: Show us your mid-late war Nagoya Type 99's

I've got a 1944 Nagoya Arsenal SN 47707 7th Series. I'll have to pull it out to get the particulars on it, I do know it's numbers matching down to the firing pin. It is missing the cleaning rod.

That would be great. If we build it they will come. For the record I don't think I've seen anyone as knowledgeable about French Rifles as Kelt. For him not to be a Mod of a French Forum is ridiculous. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk Agree with you there, Kelt is the go to guy on French rifles an...

Re: French MAS Rifle Serial Number Locations

Just as a side note refurbed MAS 36's might not have the buttstock SN, bayonet SN, trigger guard SN, and magazine floor plate SN. As for the forestock SN where would this be? On the outside or in the barrel channel, I've never had mine out of the stock hence my ignorance on this one. My P series MA...
