1908 Bronze ashtray ID request

I dug this up back in 1965-67 when in high school at a farm dump in Menomonee Falls, Wi. Back in the day we dug for old bottles (bitters, beer, poison) to sell to the antique dealer for cash. I got my first hot rod that way. I never could identify the organization. It is identified by a N on the lef...

Re: Something fishy in K98s

It has been a while. Did anyone buy one of these cleaned up/rebuilt Classic K98s (the "MITCHCLASSIC" replica/facsimile humped K98 rifle) that can post some close up photos of the work/details, font, evidence of re-blued, grind marks/highly polished surfaces, and fake stamped markings????

Re: Vz 98/22 sight trouble

I assume you checked the bore? The rifling is good and the crown good- no nicks. Even with wear they are good shooters. Does the bolt match, and if not, did you check its headspace with a FIELD gauge? Be sure rifling is visible at the end of the barrel and not worn smooth. Good crown, good rifling t...

Re: Mosin m44 BB replica, nuts

Not when Mrs Santa does the payments! Way beyond my means. If I cut back on the crestor and blood thinners it would be easy money. Maybe a therapy rifle that insurance might buy. :dance: :doh: :think: :occasion-santa: :occasion-snowman: :occasion-snowman: I paid half that for my WZ 48 and its a .22 ...

Re: SRF Archive

It seems more people are paying for Photobucket services, some of the missing pictures in the Wayback archive are returning and can be again viewed if the former poster has updated his photo bucket account as a paid account rather then the former limited free account.
