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: Spurs

I don't know much about spurs, but I'd seen these on top of my dad's shelf as long as I can remember, and when he said he was getting rid of stuff I just had to take them. https://s26.postimg.org/6752qxa5h/20180104_095524.jpg https://s26.postimg.org/unn8leilx/20180104_095549.jpg https://s26.postimg....

Steyr M95 bayonet

I got this bayonet just before I moved and just tossed it in the bayonet box, just unboxing now and realizing that it's for an M95 which is great because I happen to have one. Rifle is in my safe as that hasn't made the move yet, so just the bayonet for now. https://s26.postimg.org/8zyaau06d/2018010...

Re: M16A1 clone

The one I bought directly from Green Mountain Barrels was phosphate coated but the pins still had to be drilled. I wish I had bought the upper years ago when we could still get them with the surplus barrels, then I would have been able to avoid some of the machinist cost and have a more original rif...

Re: MAS 36

The bayonet was really done well, it's still straight despite all the twisting. I'll have to get it out of the safe when I'm back in town.

Re: 1944 VKT

I was thinking it may have been AZF, but I thought it was weird as I couldn't see even the faintest of the rest of it, or really any grinding marks.

Re: M16A1 clone

Another extra boon, is that the stock that came with the surplus kit has the rack number 74, and the scabbard on the bayonet has 74 as well. I'm sure there's been at least a few 74s stenciled on pieces like these so the likelihood of a legit match is unlikely, but still nice. The barrel is aftermark...

1944 VKT

I'm not quite certain what the 'F' on the receiver is, anyone have an idea? I took a peak on 7.62x54r.net but couldn't find one similar. Partial of another marking?

Re: 1917 PTG M91 Japanese trainer

Mosin extractors have an angle on the face so while it is indeed snapping over the rim, as the cartridges don't feed under the extractor like on Mausers for example, it's fine and part of the design.

Re: What a moron

It was a short box anyway, nothing of value was lost. I wonder if insurance companies pay when some one looses a brand new truck at the bottom of a lake. I seriously doubt it, insurance companies aren't in the habit of paying out morons doing stupid things. Insurance companies don't like paying out ...

M16A1 clone

I got this built and I'm just waiting on getting a sling for it. It's built from a surplus parts kit which was missing the barrel unfortunately and since I like not having my front door breached I used a regular lower parts kit and ordered a domestic lower from McKay Enterprises, the fit is fine, it...

MAS 36

Here's the MAS 36 I got a number of years back, it is a Century import but they were a little light on the stamp for this one fortunately.

The bayonet though appears to have been modified.

They possibly didn't know who it was, just a story about a Panther tank rumbling through town, heck of a way to get groceries though.
