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: Back with a 1917

So this is the gun. Needs new hammer, lanyard, period holster (handle rearward as it's the 1937), half moon clips. I'm loving it so far and it's only going to get better.

Re: MAS 36

Correct. You don't work the safety on a MAS 36 because it doesn't have one. 😁

Re: Back with a 1917

Bob, you hit the hammer right on the spur with your suggestion. It is indeed push off. This makes the repair even simpler, now. Numrich has the parts at reasonable prices. I also checked the SNs again and I was wrong: They are all matching. The serial under the barrel is overstruck by the reimporter...

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

Great gun! I'm shooting the heck out of my newly acquired M1917 Brazilian contract S&W and it's making me realize I'm going to need a Mod 10.

BTW, I have the exact holster as you're showing there. "Hunter" brand?

Re: Back with a 1917

Well, it's here! I have put sixty rounds through it so far. Here's the rundown: No inspection marks, reassembled in armory so numbers are not matching, great bore, no flame cutting on the top strap, no issues with the forcing cone, and parkerized somewhere along the way. It shoots well and the trigg...

Re: Back with a 1917

Thanks for this info RWS! Some of it I knew and some I didn't, and getting it all is why I love SRF. As soon as it arrives I'll get some pics up in this thread and we'll start to come to some conclusions about it. From the pics I have seen of it, the bore is going to be pretty good but that Brazilia...

Didn't arrive yesterday, so looks like it'll be Wednesday at the earliest to see it. In the meantime, here's a pic from the auction site.

Re: Back with a 1917

Thanks, P! As soon as it arrives, I'll get pics up and start spouting my marginally informed opinions. Like most of my Milsurp items, I need to pair it with some good books which will answer questions like finish and serial number ranges. I'm in Colorado, as you read, and I do get down to Tucson eve...

Back with a 1917

Three reasons to post: To reintroduce myself. The Zieg from Colorado, a few surplus firearms (M1, N°1 MkIII*, M38, M1911 "frankengun"). I'm a shooter more than a collector, but I'm keen to restore what I have and keep them clean, working, and intact. I do like to acquire accessories to complete the ...
