    Even the last one JimF had was missing the magazine, IIRC. Those mags must be pretty darn rare - think he had one made up from wood for his show displays. He said his 2X Carbine was made of wood...

    I bought a Ruger 10/22 rifle a few years ago (my first) from a friend that had just put a new barrel on it. He bought it used and said the first time he fired it, it "blew up" the shell case and...

    We have a show with a "Military Collectibles" theme coming up in Portland later this month. I may take it along. Are these worth around $10 US, or would you up the price a bit? Thanks! - Bob

    I agree the Carbine might have a Type 5 slide, and obviously a Type 1 front band. - Bob
