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: NOS Parts

I would think the individual soldier would not have done so. They had thousands of good Japanese rifles to choose from. The larger supply of parts and rifles would have gone to the nations Japan attacked in Asia as war reparations.

Re: Cavalry Carbine Issue

Nice rifle, bad ammo to the point of getting a refund from PPU on ammo that out of spec's.
So if you fire a round with the bayonet deployed do you think one would ricochet off it tumbling that bad. :doh:

Re: Foreign Garands

With the M1's coming back to the CMP there may not be many Rack grades or woodless offered. A large part of that grade will probably be turned into CMP Specials that they are putting on new barrels, stocks and refinishing.

Re: Cavalry Carbine Issue

IIRC the Italians used a bullet around .268" so if you are micing the bullets in the ammo at .264" then that would explain the key holing. Lets see some pictures of the rifle....don't be a tease. :D

Re: .303" Wound Profiles (Bullet Penetration Comparisons)

Does the 7.92x57 tumble or do a 180 in the test medium? Look like it does by the shape of the wound channel.

Re: Picked up an ammo belt for my 1903

I know it's not the exact one that was used with the 1903, but it will work for now. Once I get another m1 garand, I will use this for it and hunt down a proper one for the 03. Will 0000 steel wool work for cleaning the corrosion? Yes, but the steel wool may take some of the black finish off that i...

Re: Picked up an ammo belt for my 1903

Nice belt. You can clean the white corrosion off the metal with a stiff bristle brush. The date is most likely 1953 and if you don't have a Garand you can get a $1 each for the clips.

Re: I picked up wooden crates and have a question.

Both are 7.62x54 Russian. The ammo in the green box is Czech and the silver tip means light ball. The yellow tipped on the other ammo usually means its heavy ball ammo. I'm not sure what nation that' ammo is from. The Czech ammo is very good surplus ammo.

Re: Gold 33 stamped on cut down stock

If you could prove it was used by one it would be worth a little more to a collector of that type of stuff. Is there any stamps on the wood or metal that isn't from the original maker.

Re: Gewehr 88

To clarify is it in original condition with barrel shroud(looks like a 10ga shotgun barrel)or a reworked rifle with no barrel shroud. If its a reworked model I saw one sell for $300 not long ago in excellent condition. If its in original condition with the fat barrel shroud on it still a good deal. ...

They refer to her as a sniper....The first thing in sniping is to never give up your position, like hanging the barrel of your rifle out a window.
