    My Old Man flew out of Glatton as a waist gunner with the 457th bomb Group. Brought back bits of flak pulled from the aircraft. He kept them with his DFC and "Caterpillar Club" pin. Most of his...

    Very nice. They are a bit more pleasant to shoot with the 7mm barrel, if you can find one. Also, it is possible to flip the right hand mag plate. It will still operate, but capacity will be reduced.

    It is one of the earlier ones with the small trigger guard, so that's cool, but ouch! Awful steep. If you do get one, and plan to actually shoot it, buy a couple of firing pins. They snap off...

    Got four or five of the red (training?) ones. I have no worries about longevity with these, as the cardboard appears well protected. Certainly hard to lose.

    Nice. Built about the same time as mine. From what I understand, final assembly was moved to Steyr in Austria after a duplicate serial number scheme by the workers was discovered, where they smuggled...

    Sounds like there is something funny going on here. The 1891 Argentine Mauser has a two position safety, and shouldn't need a 1/4" spacer to unscrew. I've got about 6 3/16" firing pin length here,...

    I believe the Sauer 38H was also popular, at least with Fallschirmjager. Haven't seen many about of late, but probably still priced well below a Luger.

    You can find those pullers at any real auto parts store. Some stores offer free rentals as well, where you buy the tool, use it, then return it for a full refund.
