Re: 85,000 plus M-1 Rifles are comming home!

I bet about 60 % will be shot out dogs and the other 40% the CMP will have to rebuild or fix to bring them up to shootable condition. The CMP has got to pay for the shipping, packaging, and loading to get them here, then when they get to the CMP they got to cull out the good ones if any. I'd hate to...

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

I just picked up a MAS 36 at a show that the wife was selling at cost from 1995. The old guy died and he had $89 on the original century tag. Rifle was still in somewhat hardened cosmo. I got it for $85-- 1995 prices. You got to love gun shows where the wife dumps the old guys treasures because she ...

Re: Big Fond du Lac WI Gun show Sat

Anyone else go to the show. Let us know your comments. Pick anything up? It seemed like a light crowd and not too many buyers, lots of people walking around with hunting rifles to sell. Not many takers. I think people are getting sick of the high prices. It seemed like not too many surplus guys or g...

Re: Big Fond du Lac WI Gun show Sat

It was good because 5 tables were dead collectors stuff being sold at bargain prices by the son, daughter, and wife. Two were huge collections of surplus pistols like 50-80 on 2 tables, one about 30 rifles, and the others surplus rifles and pistols generally at what the former collector paid or abou...

So for the WI boys and girls the states large show is this Saturday 0800- 5 at the Fond du Lac city fair grounds.

How is this barrel? :doh: :doh: :doh: A nice Krag drill rifle. Perfect for shooting tacks, like a Krag shotgun 8-) :doh: And it came with the original sling.

Re: Help! I had a D'oh moment

:?: :?: :doh: :think: :think: opps I did not realize the chain is in the barrel. That is a predicament. No way will it be pushed out from the chamber since a rod will not fit. Id like to see how a smith fixes this one. I wonder if he has to remove the barrel?

Re: Help! I had a D'oh moment

You can use a hardwood rod or fiberglass rod to hammer it out the way it went in, but brass will not crack. Buy a brass long rod as close to the barrel size as possible, but not a tight fit, so it does not bend. This is an expensive endeavor. When you get it out; just buy a nice Dewey cleaning rod o...

Webley pellet pistol in Battlefield finish

So Airgun depot an Pyramyd air in the USA will offer the Webley reproduction pellet pistol in the Battlefield finish and the Stainless exhibition finish in November of this year. The BB revolver is fair, but the black finish is nasty. It took a year for them to wake up and offer the more realistic f...
