    That would be entirely your choice. In the US you can still get surplus 30 cal so you aren't going to save that much. Here in Canada we really have no source and 30 cal ball costs huge. You can...

    Looks good, bolt doesn't match which is almost expected... You have to use a macro setting for the bore and let it do it's job to get the pic. Still, it looks pretty good too.

    I bet you could solder the springs together top to bottom and it would work. That way it doesn't get too hot and lose it's temper... The pic of the joint is terrible, just enlarged. Doesn't show...

    I can't agree Gil, a soldier will look at other weapons around him and study them. Even a young one will handle things and through time will understand the difference. I know that there are some...

    I think these are a set of cast off UK that I found in Wainwright after BATUS troops departed in the '80's. If I still have a set of CDN I'd have to dig a bit to find them. I'll look...here's the...

    So, it sold for $1000? Is it considered a parts gun then? With all the accumulation of different parts?

    I don't believe anyone still uses them. We were probably last to turn them in and yes, mine are here somewhere. I use mine for casting bullets though, they take the hot lead bullets nicely.

    Now I get it, he meant if the LINER was available in the caliber desired. Had to read it again.

    Doesn't matter, I think that's the direction of it all eventually anyway. At least they're there to see. I'll bet you'd have that one...and the others.
