    Interestingly, there is a 1918-built Colt BAR currently on GB, that has quite a few WRA parts that also have the M.A. marks.

    New P.38 Day

    I recently acquired this 11/63 (birth-year/Kennedy assassination) example from Joe Salter. It must be one of the last P.38's made before switching to the P1. Really digging the instruction manual!

    I'll post some more detailed pix of that area of the suspect gun... after the NFL wild card games!

    Yes, it's much easier to buy the kits than to assemble them! And fun, too.
