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: recent sales price of mummy wrapped Enfield No.4

Both of mine that are in the wrap are Mas 36 rebuilds that look like new. At least the one I opened. They were like $179 back in the day. In contrast, the Enfields are brand new unissued rifles. A guy at one of our local shows had 3 in the wrap and opened all to sell about 3 years ago-it was a sorry...

Re: Help ID AMMO?

Turk ammo can be good or poor, or down right dangerous. I shoot my 1936 to 54 stuff and also 1950s Yugo, but a CAUTION :lol: Case neck splits are a common issue with some of the older brass cased 8mm ammo. Worse, with some the body of the case splits or the back base splits and gas comes back into y...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

Same lamp as above. All photos are sourced from the auction Ap 2020. Details of the incorrect parts. It appears to have been redone rewired sometime ca. 1950s using a vintage, but not correct Monowatt pull chain socket that has a nice patina. The lamp can easily be switched to a correct, vintage Bry...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

Another lamp, but again repainted. Poorly at that. Lets paint over the original rusty finish! :doh: What is with people and spray paint- we need a 5 day waiting period on cans of paint. Wrong socket, (Pull chain) but at least a vintage one, and the wrong cord and plug. Unfortunately, the paper label...

Re: 2020 9th ed. Standard Catalog of Military Firearms is out

Note, I am not interested in the machine gun or black rifle semi autos. I do not follow these trends and did not even look at the price comparisons between the two editions. I have no interest in these, so this is a weak spot in my review. While the author covers a few black powder guns it is not th...

Re: What do you do when you run out of TP?

Actually the Sears (Sears, Roebuck and Company, founded 1893), as well as monkey wards (Montgomery Ward founded 1872) catalog worked much better than corn cobs. Others close to town had newspapers. As a kid in the 1950s, the out houses at the northern Wi hunting cabins still had catalogs for TP. :ro...
