    A proper hydraulic press would work best, I actually justified buying one for work similar. Not expensive but well worth having.

    Not hard. Just make a set of barrel blocks and an action wrench, need a good big vise and they come right apart. It's assembly that takes a bit more attention.

    I'm sorry, I've never heard of a bayonet specific for the "AR18"... I think you'll be fine. The AR18 is same as the AR180, they interchange perfectly, I had an early Armalite.

    The writing is Spanish, I didn't say it WAS Italian, I just suggested Italy issued a cartridge like this. I wonder if these were loaded from fired cases by another entity other than FN? On the...

    Seeing that glowing Northrop P61 in the first pics, although no wings...brings back to mind one of our now passed members that started his military career flying in those. RIP Cosine26, I wish you...

    Pics always show a blank butt, like it was flat peened and painted. No sun burst or screw. If you could find a German example there's a phillips screw at the butt and you could slide a handle on,...

    1928A1s had later production cuts that included plain cocking knob and no cooling fins or Cutts Comp. The barrels would interchange and front tenon so M1s and earlier could use forestock or grip. ...
