    Never heard that one.



    That was it, which was attached to the PX in Ft Lewis. Brand new gear, still have them here full of mags I haven't used since I got them...about 28 mags for 1911A1.

    Seen far to much of that. My kids said "At least we know your stuff is worth money"...I just have to hope they can corner the right two guys to come in and clear it. I'm moving as much as I can...

    I was curious as to why the butt was loose in the first place...shrinkage, no washer inside... I'd want to remove it and see.

    Barrel looks to have been polished and blue but it could just be reflection. Bolt has been jewelled but that can be bead blasted off. It's been drilled and tapped for that rear sight, that takes...

    From what I remember, single snap canvas pouches were in use with .45 mags. Certainly earlier. The double snap were gone and that leather one was strictly MP as you suggest. I bought all mine from...

    I agree with post #2, cleaning and let it dry first. I don't think Minwax has enough stain or color to do it though. If you have a MUCH lighter piece you could use die to bring it closer. Then a...
