All we have is snow in WI, 8 inches on Sunday and an...

Re: Something fishy in K98s

see my added comment about the " MITCHCLASSIC" a replica/facsimile K98 rifle. And a caution to the uninformed, you are not getting a bring back, rather you are getting a humped K98 that has been transformed into a fake replica K98 with no historical value or collector value remaining. They look more...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-okIkNq0XY Yes, on that one batch they seem to be RCs with few to no electrowritten mumbers on the small parts and only that one seemed to still have an electro written # on the bolt. If you look at most of those batches, the RC- ness of most have been removed- few s...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

An interesting German made trench art oil lamp. The source is flee bay photos. This must be somewhat similar in construction to an actual Snead patented OIL LAMP version. I have never seen a picture of an oil lamp version of the Snead lamp and its shade type. Surly, it did not have the helmet or pap...

Views of latter period lamps parts commonly used to rebuild /rewire an early Snead lamp. All of the below are so incorrect. :doh: A large hap instead of the small one, a modern finial, a harp placed under the socket and while it's a correct looking push button socket- it has a hole for slightly diff...
