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: S&S Fire arms I like them

How expensive was postage? So much per $100, $200 order totral, or by actual weight and distance?

Re: Brazilian Mausers

Thank you . I got to look at my Chilean mausers. Sounds like I got the wrong slings from Gander. Maybe they are Brazilian or Spanish. They have not been out in 12 years. Those are some nicely stamped intact crests that have not been worn smooth. We no longer see South American Mausers at guns shows ...

Re: P 38 Maruzen 1st edition BB pistol

Additionally, any 'fully-marked' versions bearing full trademarks (Walther, in this case) were unlicensed and therefore deemed non-legal for import. INTERESTING. 12 July 2018. There is a guy from Japan selling these on eBay, but they run $279 and no guarantee it will arrive and get through customs?...

Re: bayonet replacement parts?

That is one that was mongered for parts due to condition. Junk-- as we say in the Corps---a code H item; so save wood grips and scabbard if not dented or cracked. Parts are not to be found. You buy an intact, junk bayonet in poor condition like yours and take the parts off. Generally the parts cost ...

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

Why does the crest in Ball's book look so different? I am on page 39 of Balls, " Mauser Military Rifles of the World , second ed, 2000 and both pictures show the same crest . Just that the photo on the right of an 1895 rifle is from a poorly stamped example. A poor photo. Balls 1893 crest is the sa...

Your stock matches and does have a cartouche. It is intact. Cleaning rod will be stamped to match. 265 A nice looking 1895. Note the 1895 does not use a 1912 bayonet. Both the Chilean Mauser 1895 and 1912 use a slightly different bayonet with similar markings. The barrel loop is different on each ba...

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

Curious if the sling on the 1893 is original The sling is incorrect from what little shows. It appears to be a 1903 Springfield US sling. On my 1895 Chilean Mausers I got this type of sling with the rifles when Gander Mountain sold tons of 1895 rifles at $165 back around 2007/8???? For what I think...

Re: Anyone collect Dimestore cast metal soldiers?

Here is a close up of two Barclay 3 inch figures with flag, the first is a separate pressed tin helmet, lead alloy cast figure. A distinctive attribute is that they generally have half moon painted eyelids and a stiffer look (short stride) than Manoils. Later, they also produced cast helmet figures....
