    "...(frosty)..." That's the beginning of rust. Isn't terminal though. Isn't unsafe for shooting either.

    Lots of surplus Soviet night vision kit was around here, 25 or so years ago. Kind of crud though.
    $300 or $400 is decidedly expensive. Especially for non-Russian stuff. Mind you, most of the...

    "...Thompson Semi-Automatic Rifle..." No such thing. Any Chopper that was "semi'd" was done to avoid the U.S. Class 3 tax.
    Anyway, Commemorative's have proven to be a really bad investment. It's...

    "...averaging 2560 fps..." Sounds like deteriorated powder. I'm wondering if it may have been reloads. Current start loads of IMR3031 run 2697 FPS. An 'LC' head stamp doesn't really mean much. Just a...

    Amazing how fast one gets used to eating regular and living inside.
    It seems Steve at .303british.com has stopped too. Still the best .303 Brit site on the net though.

    It's going to be a Bubba'd rifle anyway so what you use as a wood finish won't matter. I'd suggest Pure Tung Oil instead of RLO or BLO. When properly rubbed in(one coat per day with 24 hours drying...

    Not all pouches or bags assorted are for carrying mags. It might be a purse for carrying rations though. Is the lining plastic or leather?
    It might not be military at all too.

    I'm seeing that U.S. Army OR's didn't have a forage cap after 1942. The hat is Army. Might be an officer's hat somebody stuck an OR's badge on.
    I think the cap badge may be Viet Nam era.

    A bit too long can be fixed with a file or a fine grinding wheel. The difference is 62.5 thou(as in .0625"). A lot will depend on what tools you own.
