I'm keeping him interested by giving him a rifle or two now and then. Friend of mine has a Japanese T38 Sniper and wanted a copy made. He f...

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
