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: Modern war ship question

I can't say for sure, but I think the mentality is to not take missile hits, by using defensive stand off systems. That and the types of engagements modern ships are designed for aren't WWII style. PAX

Re: New Guy Needs Help

Welcome aboard from Kali.

I'm on Calguns and hang mostly in the C&R forum. A member recently request help on some fine weapons. Here's a link. Good luck on your move and hunt for iron & wood, PAX

Re: TOO BAD

The last time I went shooting was 4 years ago. We shot the .357 & .41 mag, with my (now) ex-nephew in law, active Marine, Beretta instructor. Before that was 6 years ago, running a couple recently acquired SKSs. I got a practical example of negative sear engagement. Currently I'm no fewer than 3 doz...

Re: Winchester Garand...UPDATE POST#9

Thanks for the links, ffuries.

Eventually I'll learn it's mechanicals, and what/where to look, but right now I'm in midstream of too many projects.

I just didn't wan to let this in get away. PAX

Well fellas, here's the refresher of my original post, in which I could have misheard what was said or presumed what was meant: Wrapping up my barter Kali paper chase, of 2 Mongrel SKS and 2 Big 5 91/30's, for my FFL bud's cherry picked SVT40 20 years ago. While chatting I happened to asked if he ha...

Re: Winchester Garand...UPDATE POST#9

Hi Fellas, Finally took the plunge after getting feed back from several boards. Upon examining the specimen, using my acquired research data, this is what I found during the cursory once over: DMC/CMP rifle purchased in April '96 and owned by him since Owner sponsored by Tour Of Duty out of Visalia,...

NorKal FFLs give up

Hi Guys,

Anyone in the Modesto area looking for stuff? Couple FFLs are rolling up their tent and have some inventory, accessories, and junk. Shotgun Johnny's (the 29th is the last day) and AAA Guns & Lock (Ripon-end of the year). Oakdale went from 5 shops to 1 over the last couple years. PAX

SOME COMMIE IRON

Hi Fellas, I was rootin around and dug up these old pictures. I haven't taken many since the Bucket crashed. A few kinda recent acquisitions and past projects. I've run across just a couple Sinobanians guns but as of late, SKSs have become scarce AND $pendy. Many got Bubbad up when they were cheap a...

Re: He said it was a Norinco...

Nice score. It's likely one of the Sinobanians that came ashore a few years back. I've got a few and that's where the stamps are located too, with "A, F, & H" letter prefixes from arsenal /26\. Back to your original inquiry, it's not unusual to run across SKSs with no importer stamp. Not common but ...

Very nice, love all the accessories too - most of us can only dream about having one of those.

Re: BUBBA

I have a somewhat similar perspective. Recently I picked up 3 Bubbafized rifles, and built a couple more. A '70 Albanian SKS that the furniture was nicely redone, looked reblued too. Seller said it was "restored" but he got it that way. Looks great. $465 A 1916 Spanish 7mm carbine, light sanding & 5...

Re: FN49 Egyptian sniper rifle

That's a unique rig, totally legit, and super Boss.

I'd clone my Franken Farouk into one if I could. But it's not dovetail cut. PAX

Re: Winchester Garand

Thanks All, Great feed back, for the second time. In the last couple years, I've nosed around Garands and asked for some pointers before. The response is always constructive. I've known the owner for a decade, an 01 for 40 years, and is the only reason I'm even considering spending that much bank (t...

Winchester Garand...UPDATE POST#9

Hi Folks, I've been trying not to go down the M1 rabbit hole, because I missed the window of cheapness long ago. I really know very little about the platform, other than I should have at least one specimen. I've come up on an all matching unit (Winny stamped parts), in excellent condition, $1400. It...
