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 blue sky import

Still waiting for a documentation if possible, few Blues Skys are shown in detail. It would be neat to have some photo documentation. Thanks

Re: WTB - Bbl Band Screw M28 Finn

Yep, you buy a complete band and consider yourself lucky if you find the correct one. If I remember correct there are prewar & post war thicker stocks so you have to measure the distance at the screw to be sure you have the correct band. Not cheep, parts have tripled in the last 15 years... I'd say ...

Re: Corrosive M2 ?

A nice 1930 "Winchester" box and I'd say in WI at a show approximately $2 a round. Collectable box as a trade item. $40-75. You got to find the right guy. Most would pay $40 ASAP at a show. Contemporary 30-40 Krag goes $28-40 a box! Too nice to shoot.

Re: How desirable is 9mm largo?

Odd ball, expensive ammo you reload, or order, generally not at your local box store. Heck its rare to find old stuff at gun shows. Sarco ammo is 1/2 the price, but how old is it ? We put aside 60,000 rounds of 9x23 ammo for our Destroyer Carbines and Star Modelo Supers. You can only buy the ammo wi...

Re: Corrosive M2 ?

I was told it is non corrosive. But I avoid old stuff for M1 Garands. Perfect for bolt actions if you get it cheep at 25 to 50 cents per round. see list http://www.ashlandlakegunclub.org/docs/CorrosivePrimerRedux.pdf Better format in above source. I put it in quote, in case the link goes bad. Corros...

Re: WTB MAS 36 Bayonet

This is some what hard bayonet to find at gun shows. Sometimes you find them under "unknown bayonets" on flee bay. Generally they stick with the rifle. A long time ago libertytreecollectors had a few, but those are long gone. Likewise Sarco's were also sold off a few years ago. Maybe someone will ha...
