That's something different for sure

Nothing like a rifle that has changed hands between enemies for historical interest. Anybody have any idea why the sight was inverted? What do you suppose it would have done for the minimum range it could be sighted for? Why do the distance marks look to be going in the right direction even though t...

Hmmm

I was one thing or the other of an FO team. When the shooting started my job required from me something more important than M16 fire most of the time. I'll ask the question on my 6/31st site... real 9th Divison mud dog Mekong delta infantry in Vietnam. My personal memory doesn't record knocking clip...

THe reason for Paypal

Eoin, by using Paypal the money should convert from whatever a contributor's national money is to US dollars. The contribution value is whatever the equal amount in other currencies would be to US dollars.

I have placed an order

I have ordered a hundred pins and a hundred patches. They should be ready in about four weeks. The basic design should look something like the attached image but with no background and the edges of the pin should be metal with an antique silver finish as well as the letters in the Milsurp After Hour...

This is a terrific example of a picture story that I think all of us like to see. It was particularly good that you showed the young man the black powder guns and gave him a chance to fire them. That's one part of the shooting sport that many people, both young and old, never get any experience with.

The 7.62 conversion as a matter of contrast

Nice to see a M1916 Spanish Mauser that hasn't been coverted to the 7.62 Nato round. I can see that the older of your rifles doesn't have a bolt through the stock and the newer one has two bolts. You will notice in my 7.62 conversion has the one bolt under the receiver. Wonder how they decided on th...

The magazine cutoff looks military. The safety looks much more user friendly than the military one that was on the other side of the bolt on later Enfields. The flat sided bolt knob is good. The multiple sight leaves are from another time for sure. Really good post. Glad you took the time to make it...
