    If it's a Carcano, it was sporterized here. If 6.5x54 MS, it was most likely done in Canada. Looks like one I picked up a couple of years ago. I fixed mine up to take a bayonet again which wasn't...

    I had been talking for a week about a 105mm shell I saw at an antique market. Well, turns out I'm either blind or lost the ability to read. It was a 155mm shell. So I know even less about these...

    I'm thinking if the 105mm shell is still there this weekend I may get it. I saw them priced at $300 on an online site. Seems ridiculous but if accurate the offered price is a good deal at $200. If...

    You talked me into it. Turns out it was 15% off so I was at $90 out the door with taxes.

    It has no paint markings on it, just stamped. I did take some photos after I cleaned it up a little. It...

    4.2 inch mortar shell

    At least that's what I'm pretty sure it is. I've looked at it before at a local antique shop but looked at it closer today. No fuse. It's an HE in pretty nice condition. Has a plastic insert in...

    It's been a long time since I fired an artillery piece. I honestly don't remember how we did it. I remember the bags all stringed together. Wasn't my branch but we did it all at least for one day...

    Apparently, the guy on point in Vietnam often had a shotgun. They are using them today in urban warfare and house cleaning. Pretty wild looking things today. The old pumps are gone. Plastic,...

    My flea market guy had a shell today that was tempting. 105mm with a fuse. Unfired, looks as new as the day it came out of the factory except for a couple of scuffs, probably from dropping it while...

    The spike has no real collector value with the crack. I'm still able to get these at about $15 a pop in surplus stores and Long Branch doesn't make it special here. It's been refurbishes as pointed...
  18. Canfield's book On US Military Shotguns
