Re: Bayonets

Just to be pedantic (and a smart arse) the bayonets for the No1 Rifle ( SMLE ) are not really bayonets, they are swords, designed to be attached to rifles and thus used as bayonets if necessary. Officially they were "Swords, bayonet....."; thus making the Australian Army one of the last wh...

Re: Euroarms Rogers & Spencer

Lovely pistol, I've fired one a few times and liked it a lot. The first time I fired one was by invitation from a new and proud owner, I fired a shot and took the 'X' out at 25 metres, handed the pistol back and said "Nice gun", there was no way that I was going to fire a second shot. :loco:

Re: RANGE SCRAP........

Duncan, I've always found that the lead melts out of even full jackets and that they float to the top. The old military range (now rows of houses) where we used to do test firings of Brens and Vickers guns, was also used on weekends by military rifle clubs, which were civilian clubs under the old tr...

Re: Random Meaningless Pictures-Lets See Them

On that subject, Duncan, my very distant relative, the late Nancy Wake had bit to say on the subject. When disguised as a man, she had to piddle with the rest and she said that it took a bit of practice to pee out the fly of a pair of men's pants successfully!! She also reckoned that the M1 Carbine ...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

On nipple wrenches, they can never be too substantial and the best system is where the nipple has a square "drive".
Common nipples can be squared and a suitable wrench made.

I found an interesting, though somewhat pricey site.

Rifles and shotguns,Duncan, and a lot of farmers have semi-autos.

Re: Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch........

Even in training we never counted, we pulled the pin threw, then chanted " 1,2 down".

My first live throw, I threw, then in the same fluid motion went to ground,

"Get UP! Get UP!" from the Tower.

"GET DOWN"

BOOOM!!

I did better the second time :bigsmile:
