    There were No.7Mk.1 bayonets in Owen scabbards which might account for the leather P'07 style scabbards which were legit as made in Australia. I still have one or two here.

    At the risk of being "political", it just shows that the gov't can pass all the laws they want and it only affects the law abiding. I saw a picture of the Andersen Arms AR this morning that was used...

    I had to build a new bolt for a guy out west last year because he blew it up with a hot handload and heavy, (I think 175 grain projectile). Remarkably, the body wasn't damaged at all. I have a close...

    Hi Jorrit,

    You at least have a basic knowledge now of what to look for. I went to the trouble not long ago of patching and refinishing to spec a Savage No.4 forend to use in a restoration I was...

    Apparently, 98% of the Eddystone rifles examined that are Parkerized are rebuilt at US arsenals. Finding one with original Parkerized finish is pretty rare. It's hard to distinguish from the original...

    Come and visit SC. We can shoot the whole line up of weapons from your time in service. SLR, SMG, GPMG and even pistols if you like. The range is about 50 paces from the back door of the shop.

    Jeez, I'll take two of each!
