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: GEW 88/05 Issue.....

Well I guess its not as bad as walking out to the driveway and saying hey where's the Chevy and hearing you have not had it for years... Well I did walk out to the parking lot looking for the Jeep and couldn't find it. Back story Hurricane Michael totaled both my wife's and my Jeep Grand Cherokees,...

Re: GEW 88/05 Issue.....

Could be that it's been so long since I've taken it out shooting, that I just didn't recall it being there. Wife is making fun of me now, she told me to make a note of it in my gun book, just incase I forget about it.........

Wow that is a bad break.. Do not know if I would have shot commercial out of her.. Considering the spot maybe a little spot weld to reinforce it..??? Do not know how dangerous it would be to shoot then???. But it does show the metal is aging in receiver. Commercial isn't loaded as hot as modern, pe...

GEW 88/05 Issue.....

Doing another post Hurricane Micheal gun cleaning, first one was a quick oiling and storage, this one is a major breakdown inspection, cleaning and oiling of the guns (12 done 28 more to go). Found this on my 1890 Danzig GEW 88/05, this is in the chamber area. Sad part is I've have shot this rifle a...

:snooty: Re: Spit shines. When I was at Chanute, in tech school, I saw a few of my classmates doing a weird thing to spit shine their boots. They'd layer polish onto the toes and then squirt lighter fluid in it. Then they set in on fire briefly, blew it out and rubbed it out to a fantastic mirror sh...

Re: Help IDing Calvary Carbine

I do like the Saddle ring bar, any chance of a close up???.. Remember seeing a German made musket that was cut down and modified with a long bar like that.. It was rumored to have been brought in by the South during the Civil War and converted into Percussion. It had a long saddle ring like that on...

Help IDing Calvary Carbine

Friend on a non-weapons forum acquired this rifle. He's currently trying to ID it, and will try to clean it up some.  It appears to be a Cavalry Carbine due to the saddle ring and bar, but I can not find an example of it. I'm beginning to wonder if it might be a Bannermans job, but I don't know. One...

Re: F-104 Trivia

While at Ali Al Salem, Kuwait for Southern Watch in 99, I watched one of the HC-130s make an "Oh Shit" low level recovery. Asked the crew when they came through if they were flying acrobatics or something and all I got was a pound sand look. Finally one of the loads told me the VIP (AKA General) the...

Re: F-104 Trivia

F-104, I remember the term man on a rocket used to describe it. Remember seeing them flying when I was a military brat in Germany, and seeing them screaming at low level over the base during NATO TAC-EVALS.

Cleaning rod and sling installed. Will be getting different furniture for it, in a traditional color along with the trapdoor in the buttstock. Already looking better and complete. Might change out the pistol grip also. I'll keep the original furniture as is and it'll be sold with the rifle as a pack...

Do we have any graduates or attendees of our nation’s military academies? Specifically USAFA? My youngest son received his appointment on Monday.
