Re: Standard issue Canadian Ross rifle

+1, slugging the barrel and casting the chamber is the only way I can think of to verify the rifles caliber & cartridge.

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

Nice one MT, I love the look of it but oh dear that flash hider.... Thanks Josey, the M2 flash hider was very effective I am told but some snipers worried, because of its loose fit, that it was messing with the barrels harmonics. The Army in 1955 started issuing the T37 flash hider on rebuilt M1D's...

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

I didn't mean to down play the investment side of it....a more sure thing than any stock I know about that's traded on Wall Street. A delight to own and and an investment that will only appreciate. Didn't take it that way Robert, don't think I have lost money on a firearm yet, but very few have mad...

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

You are particularly correct Robert, she does view them as investments that do make money (not big money) over time. But this purchase will be a nice investment as i picked it up for a little more than what CMP was selling the rifle and base for ($3500 and it sold last week) That doesn't count what ...

Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

Re: Albanian SKS and a Chinese-Albanian import

After getting up to a dozen SKS's I have pared mine down to 2, and Albanian and a Chinese D Model. The Albanian is just a pretty with its longer hand guard and hook style charging handle. The Chinese D Model is just fun to shoot and can us 10, 20, or 30 round AK mags equally well.

A new Range toy, BYF44 HT sniper

After years of sitting on the sidelines when it came to German snipers and realizing my best bet was to go reproduction I decided last year to pic up a reproduction SSR, and a LSR to shout and enjoy. But I always wanted a High Turret sniper but never seemed to realize the dream, until now. Last Augu...

Re: M1 Garand

Nice rifle Robert, got 3 of them, a M1d, M1c, and a SA 1944 M1 that was fired by Local Veterans Honor Guard at his funeral. The disabled the gas system and had to rack it for the 1st 2 rounds, but left the 3rd shell in the rifle. That one will never be shot again.
