    Oooh, that case looks spiffy with that Remington.
    Might have to track one down for my model 8.

    Looks like a breakdown shotgun case. Like for a Winchester 1897 or Model 12.
    The bayonet pouch would likely hold a wooden thread-together cleaning rod just right.

    Neat case!

    I had the pleasure of getting to know a Korean War vet that spoke openly of his experiences.

    He carried a BAR and received a Purple Heart for being injured by a grenade.

    It currently takes a lot of force to actuate. I don’t think a 3D print would stand up to it.

    I think a good cleaning oiling will make the whole thing work better though. That’s step one, for...

    Just arrived!

    The action looks complete except the selector switch is snapped off. I think I’ll be able to fabricate one of those.

    It even came with 4 of the double sized cartridges. Super...

    No brainer! Clever thinking on the broom handle. Pretty cheap project overall — nice work!

    The one I've sold was complete and went for 1,750 and that was a few years ago.
    Since this is really the most important and visually impressive section, I think you're probably right.

    You could have at least had the decency to wait until it was over so I couldn't bid on it! ;)

    I have one of the 224 Kay-Chuk S&W 17 revolvers.

    Poor thing has some really bad pitting from poor storage.

    This time, it's rebarreled to 458 Winchester Magnum.

    The maximum pressures of 30-06 and 458 are within a couple thousand PSI, or closer depending...

    Boy don’t I know it.

    It is kinda fun to open up a box and go, “oh neat!”

    Like finding something cool at a yard sale except for free and in your own house haha.

    Even if it is a postwar fake, it gives a trench art vibe.

    Makes me want one!
