Re: M1917 Headspace Question

No, it is most likely bolt lug set back for being fired many,many times. Well his “original issue” was insufficient headspace not excessive headspace. So not many rounds on that bolt or receiver.

Re: Ship to California?

Well basically assault rifles and some handguns are not transferable to Californians but an “individual” needs no special requirements to ship to a California FFL.

Rifles are like women..they are all individuals and NO One on the internet can tell you what yours will prefer. B...
