    I only have the photos provided by the auction house. I thought that was a rebuild mark on the stock and thus my questioning of the SG and crossed cannons stamp (fake?). The auction photos usually...

    That is really strange. In W5USMC's post, you can actually see a dove-tailed slot with Type 3 rear sight installed yet PFerrari's photos show no dove tail slot or even a rise on the rear receiver for...

    The soldier appears to be carrying a XM-177. The trigger guard on that rifle appears to have been removed, not folded forward or back. I have never seen that in all of my LE experience and never...

    While researching replacement finishes for my M39 (I'm still not sure what that original finish should be), I learned that BLO contains an oxidizer which helps it to dry and set up quicker. You rub...

    There are so many fakes out there that I bet you can find a good one if you start looking. The trick is to convince the owner that you know that it is a fake and then start the negotiations from...

    You should not have a shiny finish on a M1 carbine, so you do not want to use wax. Just stay with the RLO for the correct finish and wipe it down with RLO once or twice a year to keep it hydrated and...

    I think you nailed the stock finish. Nice work! That stock has a lot of grain in it. Lightening it up definitely brought it out.

    Actually, the wood on that 1916 looks better than the wood on 90% of those rifles imported into the USA. You may actually be able to turn a profit on it if you sell it.

    That is just oil that I was using to soak into the rust to work it loose. I've never seen a torch cut so I would defer to you. It's too bad because the bolt number matches the number on the bottom of...
