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.

start of gun show season

Today is the start of the gunshot season. Sept. is here. I will see if I can dump a duplicate Turk & its bayonet for $325 to a sucker with way too much cash so I can buy some military photos at a local antique store. People like old bolt actions. Next week is another, so it seems just about every we...

Re: Springfield Armory M1 Carbine, Blowback CO2 .177cal BB Rifle

Is this the company that produced the Springfield BB carbine? I do not see it listed . WE logo is the same for WE-Tech, WE Air Soft, and WE Tactical International-- must be the same company? http://www.weairsoft.com/contacts For fun, I put 2 mags in the PA cart and the price is $69.98 + 7.99 shippin...

Pa now has 35 reviews; more magazine problems... Steven indicates some interesting points: Things I would have changed: I purchased the imitation wood. Unfortunately, this makes the rifle so ridiculously light and cheap feeling I just had to return it for the real wood version which I'm hoping will ...

Slowbob, Thanks for your input about primer hardness and how conditions can cause different results. Good information from an old salt that knows his Mausers. Thank You.

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

To quick to rule “overpressure” in that video. Those primers are not flattened. Ammolab. what about the raised edge around the firing pin hit mark? Is that considered a sign of slightly high pressure or just conjecture? I agree on the stock crack- I bet his screw was loose. Nothing to do with ammo....

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

I missed the helmet photos. So I added them because of some interesting points. Looks to be freshly sprayed paint. Not even an original finish. Is it a brass one? Or, is it a steel British one? Is it a reproduction ? Again no dents and wear to the helmet- its patina does not match a 100 year old lam...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

A TRUE TRAGEDY Here is a second example of the tall, UNCLE ED Lamp. This is the second example I have seen on line with photos. Unfortunately, it has been restored poorly in an amateurish, muddled manner. Definently destroys the value of the piece. The incorrect light socket has been utilized and a...
