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.

eBay screwed up

Well I do not have to worry, it seems the search function to find items on eBay is not working today. So eBay is screwed up. If not signed in, you can search for items, but sign in, and it fails to do a search on the home old computer and even the new macs at the library. So if you find something yo...

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

Too bad the makers of the carbine could not come up with the wood quality like found on air soft rifles. This would be a winner of a replica if it could be a pellet rifle rather than a green gas, air soft K98. Nice markings close to a real K98, not applied as cheep paint, rather impressed/molded int...

. 32 ACP is cheep about 32-35 cents per round, cheeper if you buy buy the thousands. Buy some and shoot the sucker and just enjoy it. I do not waste my time reloading .32 ACP. Too had to find the cases in the grass at the range. At least almost every store has some on hand. Harder too find in the gr...

Here is a poor video (Out of focus) of the wood stock model and the wood looks very unlike a gun stock. A very cheep, toy like appearance. Here is an unboxing of the wood model and it shows the box and rifle- I just wish the camera was in focus :snooty: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6C_vvqDugs ...

7.7 carbine with just over a legal barrel when fired will be stout. Like a Jungle carbine- a real barker. :shhh:

Re: Identify short stocked type 99 Arisaka

Gonna refinish all the metal and stock For your consideration, if the donor stock has an original finish, but shows a wee bit to much patina. It is better to clean and oil the stock and retain its originality rather than refinish. You most likely could trade an original finish, somewhat beat stock,...

Re: Identify short stocked type 99 Arisaka

That is a a post 1939 -1945 series 24 Kokura. They made only series 20 to 25. That rifle was most likely cut down for hunting. Since the mum remains intact and the bolt matches?? I bet a USMC ground pounder brought this back for hunting or as a war souvenir. Back in the 1940s the boys had little cas...
