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: Type 99 w/ bayonet and frog

A few months back I was at a local pawn shop, they had a type 99 with sling, bayonet, scabbard and frog. Wanted $500 for the whole batch. When I asked to look it over, they said not unless I was willing to put a down payment on it, they were getting tired of having to get the step stool, get it down...

Re: Wrist repair, When the crack starts behind the trigger

I wonder if it would be possible to bring back all of Candyman's posts as a sticky? There is a lot of great stuff there!

Re: Va has fallen.

I'm from Illinois, and there is currently, in the process, a bill that will require any Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID) holder, whether you own guns or not, to have a one million dollar liability insurance policy to cover any accidents that arise from gun injuries. If you have a FOID card...

Love the stock! Kind of like when the Finns got their hand on a Mosin and replaced the stock with flame beech.

Re: 1873 Springfield Trapdoor

A town I used to live outside of had a bank that went out of business, two brothers bought the building and make a gun shop out of it, this was back in the '70's. I can remember going in there and they had several wooden barrels full of Arisaka's (about $10 or $15 each, including slings and mums, so...

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

My wife and I spent a weekend in Kansas City a couple years ago. Lots of great food, I will say. She let me run loose in the World War 1 Museum for 2 days. I must say, it was almost overwhelming. You enter the main display area by crossing over a glass bridge, under which are poppies, many many of t...

Re: The State of Our Hobby

72, it's kind of funny that you said background checks for trading in/buying a vehicle. In Illinois, you pay taxes when you buy a vehicle. Now, when you trade a vehicle in, you have to pay a tax on what the trade-in value is. Double taxation without representation, and they wonder why the population...

The State of Our Hobby

Hey all. Just have to vent. I live in west-central Illinois, and I'm starting to think we've been transported to Cali. I was in a small gunshop in the Capitol City and the owner was telling me that he doesn't know how much longer he's going to be in business. Illinois has done what it feels is the f...

Re: german stuff

A few more details, my K98 is basically numbers matching on receiver, stock, and bands, bolt is a total mismatch, whoever ground off the birds was very enthusiastic about his job, a couple of the waffenamts are still there, the barrel shank is marked Ax so from some of my other research it's an Erma...

Re: german stuff

I've got a K98, marked bcd 44, every German stamp has been violently erased with what appears to be a grinder or large file. It's got a small import mark on the bottom of the barrel, under the front sight. From what I've learned on this site, it was a Romanian capture, heavily used. Still shoots goo...

Re: BLO on Arisaka stock?

I remember a few years back everyone was using Howard's Feed. Then it was you must use Tom's 1/3 mix. In and amongst that was either linseed oil or tung oil. Pay day is coming up, so since I have 2 Arisaka', a Swiss, a Mauser, a Mosin, an 03A3, and an M1, a jar won't be that much of an investment. S...

Re: Weekend road trip.

I remember when they found the Mercury capsule, I've wondered where it ended up at, now I know. Maybe in the next couple of years Mama Hammy and I can take a run at it. Thanks for the info, it's always a source of amazement to me what pops up on this site.
