Re: Pawn Shop find 1917 DWM Luger

While searching how to repair my holster came across a Jerry Burney who specializes in Luger holster repair. $45 dollars and less than a week I got her back. Couldn’t be happier and a real easy guy to deal with.

Pawn Shop find 1917 DWM Luger

Just acquired this DWM Luger with a Gustav Reinhardt holster. The holster is in very good condition but top flap stitching came undone, there is no leather damage so should be easy fix. The grips are not numbered, but fit well and appear to be on gun for awhile. I have read that not all grips were n...

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

I use to go to every show in my area, and on more then a few occasions traveled out of town. Now I go maybe 2 times year just to see what crazy prices are being asked. Dealers seem less friendly/knowledgeable, and unwilling to negotiate a reasonable price. While I have bought reloading equipment and...

Re: Type 30 Arisaka price check

72 USMC, thanks for the response! Been searching old auctions and have only seen Blank firing training rifles and beaters. I have noticed top grade Type 99s and 38s seeem to be going pretty high at shows around here.

Type 30 Arisaka price check

What would y'all say is a fair pice for a Type 30 Arisaka in very good + condition? Don't think it has cleaning rod nor does it appear to be a training rifle.It definitely the nicest exampl I have personally handled.

Re: Type 99 bullets test at 500 yards...Range Report

I have been using IMR 4895 42.5 gr with 174 BTHP Hornady bullets. Had excellent results at 500 meters on steel ram.Shoots well out of my Toyo Kogyo and Kokura Type 99s. Forget which series the are have to dig them out. On aside note Rapidrob, used your load for 6.5x55 in both M96 and M38 rifles with...

Re: My CMP 1911A1

It certainly does have that new "old gun" feel all surplus weapons have to me. Can't wait to get to range with it, think I'll put her through the paces against my 1917 USGI S&W revolver.
