    WWI, WWII handguns

    Since I now have my Luger, I need to find something else to search for.

    I'm thinking a WWI Webley would be good as I have a WWII Enfield. How hard are they to find in the US and expected price...

    Bayonet isn't worth $300. Plenty on ebay for $100. Price seems high to me by a fair amount.

    Not sure what you are intending to say but projectiles do indeed rise. The barrels are aiming upwards to compensate for the trajectory of the bullet. They cross the same point twice. Depending on...

    I can see where you could see that but I pulled it out of the safe and checked. The L is a scratch. But it is C. E. Weeks, not C. F. Weeks. I'll check that one. C. F. came up empty.

    New pics. I didn't mean to imply it had great finish, just better than the Cabelas photos. I included some photos of the holster and the interior which does not seem to have bluing. I think that's...

    I'm happy with it. The mystery of the extractor still eludes me however. Can't find any reference to a plum unnumbered extractor anywhere. So I don't know if it's a reproduction, a Russian refurb...

    I don't like it much. Tonight was an adventure in stupidity. Instead of getting the usual old guy that I like, I get this millennial kid that had just a touch of attitude. Not that he was rude or...

    I'd put a 8 on that one. 10 being mint out of the arsenal and 9 being a museum piece. It's close to being a 9 metal wise for most of it. My big area of concern is the front 7 inches of the rifle. ...

    I think it unlikely there is an import mark. They didn't mention one and I can zoom in on the original photos large enough to see two numbers of the serial number on each side view. I also can see...

    Didn't know about these but found a nice set on ebay made in 1945 I have coming. Thanks for the tip. I've been slowly gathering canteens and mess kits since I'm running out of bayonets and helmets.
