    Somewhere I do have a picture of the punt with the enormous gun mounted on it and by today's standards the gun looks so large as to be almost comical. I would think that there would have been very...

    I did ask one well known dealer on Sunday if he knew what was happening, if anything, concerning the sale of mags and like me he didn't know if restrictions were actually going to be imposed.

    I did ask one dealer on Sunday if when he sold one of the new spec U.K./E.U. deacs that will only accept a butchered mag if he actually had to, by law, sell a butchered mag with it. Apparently a...

    Peter, was the painting of weapon parts only approved if the weapon or part was being sent to certain parts of the world? What seemed silly to me was that there was no telling where the mags had been...

    A recent new thread on a silenced Sten made me recall a home made silencer which a chap showed to me years ago, late 1970s/early 1980s. The chap made it because he wasn't able to purchase a ready...
