Re: Guadalcanal captured type 38

I love it. I HAD one quite similar given to me by my uncle in 1960. He and my pops were in the 1st Filipino Regiment. Last year, he told me he liberated it when they came ashore in New Guinea. I cut mine down, when I was a kid. Now I building a Carbine clone out of it. PAX

Re: RUSSIAN 727

Yes, yes indeed...I have always thought someone should basically copy that AK-47... tighten things up here and there and give it a little beefier receiver with a cartridge just a little bit stronger and have one heck-of a military gun by just adding maybe 4 ounces at the most. I know, I know, don't...

Re: RUSSIAN 727

Russian stuff is generally rugged to begin with. It makes total sense that they beef up the gear, run off dirt. Modern DC-3ish. OG, was your rig half people, half cargo on the same deck? PAX

Re: Survival Situation

good point echo...hell with the law when all hell breaks out! There would still be RULE OF LAW, and you'd need to be cautiously courteous, in a savage manner, but mag capacity would be the last thing on my mind.

There are locations where the Garand is the only one permitted of all the other rifles mentioned.
That's why I raised the topic.
Would it matter what's permitted in such an occurrence? Pretty vague scenario. Hunker down holding the fort, or on the move? Solo or with your crew? PAX

Re: Price check on an M1903
