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: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

To expand on the beginning of 72 usmc's post most of the younger guys I know who are into shooting feel black plastic and tacti-cool is king. I've seen them come to the range with 3 or 4 variations of AR's and picatinny rail loaded shotguns when what I bring are WWI and WWII rifles. On the rare occa...

Re: Enfield M1917 Rifle

WOW! At that price I would have bought 2 or 3 of them! Very nice. Rob is right you stole it but don't have any guilt about it and enjoy it. - Bill

Re: Goobermint model sporter finally finished (yeah, right)

Tommy I have read but forgot where that removing the flash hider from a No5 barrel closes up the groups by as much as a 1/4". Out of curiosity I removed mine to see if it works but haven't gotten to the range with it yet. The theory behind it is the flash hider (it's weight) works like a pendulum at...

Todd do you ever do any shows on the east coast? It would be refreshing to deal with someone who's honest. - Bill

Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

We went to the Middletown NY gun show yesterday and I'm still dizzy from the prices I saw. When did a run of the mill round receiver 91/30 become worth $600? A drilled and tapped eliminating it's build date BSA No5 jungle carbine that was orange inside from the flash hider to the bolt face become wo...

Re: 1917 Eddystone barrel

If your rifle has a JA (Johnson Automatic) barrel that means it went thru a refurb at some point prior to or during WWII. Consider yourself lucky because the original barrel was considered unfit for service during it's refurb. If the original was still on there it would shoot terrible. This combinat...

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

I love my M48. It has an excellent bore and muzzle crown so it shoots great.
I added a Timney trigger which improved the accuracy greatly over the horrible original Yugo trigger.
I do believe you'll enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine, good luck with it. - Bill

Re: byf 44 P38

The marking on the frame reminds me of the bug stamping used on Mauser made lugers from before WWI.
I know by the Weinmar era that stamping wasn't in use anymore.

Re: byf 44 P38

Sorry I forgot to include the pics of the barrel markings and this unusual stamp underneath the hammer on the frame.
I'm not sure what that marking is as I have never seen one before and I can't find any info on it. - Bill

Re: Unknown German pistol

Perhaps it's a schuetzen pistol. They use them in German bars similar to the way we throw darts.
Here is a picture of one of the rounds next to a .22LR. It's nothing more than a .177 lead BB over a primer. - Bill
