    That type of stuff wasn't unheard of, even into the 2000s. The internet is the main reason it has become much less common as photos travel a lot farther.

    If there are some in Canada the amount would be very few. Any in country would have been brought in pre-1994 so very limited time frame where it would have been possible to buy one.

    The biggest issue with the Mk. III Ross was it wasn't given enough time to fully develop. By 1916, the design was mature and effective, with all the kinks worked out (improved bolt stops and locking...

    I know, I immediately thought of Guisan, but unfortunately he is passed on. I know he likely would have had a answer, or if he didn't he would be the guy to have figured it out.

    The best load for a AG-42 will not be any of the military loadings. Those gas systems are overgassed with standard military issued ammo (to the point that they used to oil the cartridges in service).

    This is basically exactly what I would do. Only difference I would make is adding a bit of a bevel at the front of the rod so it would gently ride up on the dent, and have a threaded hole at the end...

    2) aid in extraction from the LMG-25
