    Hi Tom. It is a bit of an upheaval to start selling off your collection but once you have started you adjust to it fairly quickly. I sold the bulk of my MG collection when I retired (including 6...

    Webley used a continuous serial number system regardless of the revolver model. The .455 Mk VI started at about 135,000 and went to about 450,000 so clearly this revolver does not show the correct...

    Whoever nickeled that revolver has sanded and polished it within an inch of its life then re-stamped the numbers with some non-original style stamps. I suspect that is not the correct number.

    To be fair, I have never shot the Super Redhawk but have handled a few of them. The Redhawk I shot was the early model with the smallish wooden grips which were a bit wide at the top and bit the...

    I dislike the Ruger Redhawk! It is heavy, clunky, unpleasant to shoot with factory grips, and the gun generally lacks refinement. I have had my S&W 8-3/8" M29 since 1981 and it is simply superb. ...

    Your Model 12 was manufactured late in 1946. I doubt that the Government would have been spending money on such items immediately after WW2.

    A large quantity of No4 rifles were sold by tender to the NZ dealers in the late 1960's. In 1969 I was working as the gunsmith for W H TIsdall Ltd in Christchurch and we had several hundred Long...

    GI's riding on a British tank. LMG is definitely a Mk I Bren with the second pattern flash hider.

    It does not have the normal inverted V reticle nor any range adjustment dial that is normal for the ZF12 MG prismatic sights. I think it may be an angle of sight instrument for an artillery piece...

    Sadly, no idea who may have owned it. It was found under the wooden porch of a local, long-abandoned stone miners hut. There were thousands of miners here during the rush, most living in tents, and...

    Very nice! I have been waiting for the photos to show up from your purchase. I just bought back a '51 that I sold many years ago. It is made in '53 (NY address) and is a relic of the gold rush in...

    The dinky little wire wheels in a Dremel work very well and give good control to produce 'wear' on sharp edges etc. A thorough degreasing of the parts and some time sitting with a film of salt water...

    Stop trying to fix what isn't broken! There is more than enough displacement in a conventional lead-cored .312" bullet to completely fill the .318" groove. Just shoot it!

    Happy reunion

    Back in the 1980's I purchased a .22 Walther GSP and a .32 conversion kit from a retiring pistol shooter. The magazines etc. were missing and the guy was going to drop them off to me but he...

    As Kiwi has mentioned, club membership is not required. What a lot of NZ people don't realise is that we have a right to own firearms enshrined in our legislation, just like the US 2nd Amendment. ...

    Our AG was quickly reminded of his lack of powers to make such decisions and he very quickly (within two hours) publicly recanted on his previous comments.

    Yes, that it pretty much normal for WW2 sniper rifles. The No 4 T's were certainly made from rifles that showed above average grouping.
