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: New To Me, Ishapore 2A1

Now this is a coincidence as I saw a 1967 dated 2A1 today at a LGS. It looked like it had had a hard life and his asking price was quite a bit north of what I paid for my 2A a couple months back but it was still a temptation to have a rifle the same age as myself. Nice lookin' rifle man.

A Victorious Pair

I went up to a local gun store to pick up a pair of spare magazines for my BM59E clone that the previous owner had finally located. While there the shop owner asked if I was interested in a pair of Smith & Wesson Victory Model revolvers. Sure I said and he pulled the pair pictured below out of his d...

Re: He said it was a Norinco...

Update time everyone! One thing I don't do is stop researching. I'll ask the same question forty different ways and see if I can get a different answer and I just did. I did not realize that on some of the very early SKS imports they hid the import stamp on the underside of the barrel behind the cle...

Re: He said it was a Norinco...

what that is, is a SINO-SOVIET SKS. 1) it has the Cyrillic battle sight 2) and this is the biggie - the barrel is screwed into the receiver, and not pinned like the typical Chinese made SKSs 3) it has a blade bayonet 4) the stock is not the typical catalpa soft wood, it's a hard wood stock although...

He said it was a Norinco...

...but it really wasn't. Stopped into a gun shop yesterday that I had never been too and there were lot's of goodies on the wall. I spotted an SKS at the very end of the rack behind the counter that at a glance I was sure was an SKS 45 so I asked to see it. "Sure" the fella said. As he reached for i...

I was on a road trip and stopped in to the shop where I bought my BSA No5 MkI and the first words out of the guys mouth were "are you interested in another Jungle Carbine". So here we go...

Introduction Stuff

I'm pretty lousy at introducing myself but figured it would be rude not to at least say hello. I've had a love of old and antique firearms with a particular interest in military arms my whole life. Now if you'll pardon me I'm going to stand in the back of the room and listen to the conversation for ...
