Siamese Army Carbine

After the war the Siamese liked the M1 Carbine so well and without money to purchase them the mofified the T38 long rifles into look alike M1Carbines ro thier own use. The Army and the Police both used them. This is an Army rendition. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/riceone/RIMG0451_zpstht8id...

Re: I'm Still Here

I have not been very active on any board in several year, but I do slip in every once in awhile to just keep in touch. I sold a swadge die to a guy several years back and he had not used it till now and found it would not screw in his press so he sent it back and I re-cut the threads and sent it bac...

Re: A pair of 44s

Peter, I use to make a swadge die to run a 308 0r 7.62x51 case through it and then it would size in a regular 6.5 Japanese sizing die. Would that be of any help to you.

Re: Last ditch Type 99 Arisaka

Very nice 34th series. Everything look like original. Metal should have been blue. Does it look like it has been buffed or does it look like it came that way? Beautiful stock. riceone

Re: SEMCA 2010

I bought my first Japanese rifle in the fall of 1950. From then untill the early 90's I just gathered what I could find of any and all rifles of WW2. Got on the internet and found out there were actually people out there that thought highly of Japanese rifles and had collections. In 2005 I went to t...

Re: SEMCA 2009

Sure wish you could come Niner, but some things are more important that guns. Rained last night and this morning so we cleaned up the shops and set up for next Friday. My mill and lathe are so clean I hate to use them before the show. riceone
