  1. WOW! Got mine already! Postal Meter FINE condition, 1.9M range, flat bolt, high wood, two rivet handguard, Marlin barrel, Type 1 barrel band, bore is shiny but well worn, stamped rear sight, lots of cosmoline, wood is well used, but no cracks. Photos after I have a chance to clean it up.
  2. Off the top of my head, I remember these: Sterling, SMG, Lewis LMG, Mauser C96, MG34, Lee Enfield, and the princess used a Russian target pistol.
  3. Soviet WW2 107mm or possibly 120mm mortar on motorcycle sidecar.
  4. Web site shows some Inlands and Standard Products still available.
  5. I don't pay extra for 'all matching' parts on US military guns. I know how the military operates and 'all matching' means that someone swapped parts to make it that way 99.95% of the time. Most of the carbines I see with Type 1 sights look like they had a Type 2 or 3 sight removed and a Type 1 staked in. During WW2 the Military did not care about having one manufacturer making all the parts. Parts from different makers were shipped wherever they were needed at that time. And after the war, everything was re-arsenalled. Again, nobody cared who made what part. They put them back toget
  6. I do not know where to buy them. I suspect it would have to come from the manufacturer. A Destructive Device dealer would be able to buy them without paying a transfer tax. I can see that there would be a need for folks developing body armor, and other things to be bale to test against grenades and other weapons. Obviously, there would have to be strict accountability. Theoretically, an individual could buy grenades or RPG rounds. Each one would have to be serial numbered and require that $200 transfer tax. And if you used it, you would have spent $200 plus the cost of the gr
  7. The lead time for importing ammunition is years. It can take a year just to get the State Department to approve each shipment. And I'm sure the Biden administration has no interest in speeding it up. I'm sure that foreign manufacturers are VERY eager to ship as much as possible while prices and demand are high.
  8. This guy has repeatedly broken his oath to support and defend the Constitution. Of course, that is what passes for normal these days in DC. But someone should bring up that he has promised in these hearings to violate the 2nd Amendment as much as he can. The whole Waco involvement just points out how much of a sick character he is.
  9. It seems that a ship from Russia just docked. Wolf ammo in most calibers is available at a lot of places now. Price is down a bit, but not where it makes me want to spend my money.
  10. I carried a Star PD .45 for many years. The XDs .45 is the first pistol that came along that was worth retiring the Star. I've carried the XDs for a couple of years now and the more I use it, the more I like it. I also have a KelTec P3AT I use when it's too hot to carry the XDs. As long as I use nice, hot ammo, it is 100% reliable. I also like the original Remington model 51 in .380. Mostly just because it fits my hand so nicely! But it's also 100% reliable.
  11. Beretta was the start. There are several more from up north that are seriously contemplating moves.
  12. It looks like Classic Arms has some of these carbines. All refurbished and starting at $1499.
  13. SLAP stands for 'Saboted Light Armor Piercing'. The important part is the 'saboted'. The 'sabot' is is the light plastic piece that holds a smaller diameter bullet. In the video, Scott says that the rounds immediately prior to the explosion were off-target. This tells me that it is possible that pieces of the previous sabots were getting caught in the muzzle brake, and causing a partial obstruction. It may be that the obstruction built up to the point where the final round slowed at the muzzle long enough for the pressure to exceed the strength of the breech. As this ammunition has a muz
  14. Interesting photo. Resistance fighter? Obviously a posed picture. STEn MKII with six mags, home-made magazine pouch, German M24 grenade in his belt. Clothes look like British 37 pattern, but the insignia on his shirt pocket looks like a collar tab from somewhere else. The cap looks kind of like a German M43 cap. I can't place the goggles.
  15. No change. Buy when cheap and stack it deep. That gets you through the lean times.
