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: RC K98

I bought a nice k98 with a nice redish laminated stock many years ago. Since I had used BLO on most of my milsurps I lightly cleaned the stock and rubbed in my BLO.
Big mistake! It lost its nice red color and turned very dark brown. Live and Learn!

Re: Midway Movie Review

I watched on Amazon last week. Even though there were loads of CG I enjoyed it. If it educates some younger folks about history I am all for it. I have rarely seen a War Movie that I didn't like.

Re: Yugoslavian M 57 Tokarev Pistol Crests A-P

I have had this M57 for a while w/ a F196XXX S/N. I believe it is 1963 birth year.
It has the "crappy" add-on safety. It has a nice feel and shoots very well.

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

How do you save money by wasting resources in a war? I just don't get it. It would make sense if they simply stopped making them with hammer spurs, but thats not what happened. I have heard the theory that it was done as a safety measure though, Initially for tank crews who could somehow cock the h...

I am just stating the replies I received from the British members on Gunboards. If someone has technical papers from Enfield that would help solve the myth issue.
