    Interesting. Still, might be a viable alternative to a firing spring kit in the MAS 49/56.

    Assuming it's German, a 98K firing pin should work just fine. Aside from the shape of the handle, they have essentially the same bolt.

    Recently had my 1873 apart, and was disconcerted to find the firing pin had become a two-piece affair. Found an original replacement. Test firing was satisfactory. Full protrusion is just shy of...

    A side building used as a powder magazine got dilapidated rather quickly when it exploded two years after his death under mysterious circumstances. I was out there a few years back, and the remaining...

    I've one of the Danish police ones as well. Came with the same type holster. Fun to shoot, as it's so heavy. I managed to break it's extractor, but found a replacement with little trouble.

    Very good to see. Hooked my niece with a 10-22 with a red dot. It's fun when you actually hit stuff, especially reactive targets. Her current favorite is a SIG P365. It fits her smaller hand, and she...

    Current ruler of the house. Wandered in the door twelve years ago. Never left. Luckily, she allows me to stay, provided I perform my chores.

    As OldPaul says, interesting design. The "safety" button acts only to manually activate the grip safety, which, when depressed, clicks off, and does not reset itself. Think this one spent some time...

    Looks like metal is peened over the plunger pin. Might be a thin flange of material holding it in. Can you push the pin in and dress the inside edge of the hole?

    I'd probably go after the other side of the fit, and paint the bayonet lug of one rifle with Magic Marker or some such, and see where it rubs off. That might point you to the tight dimension of the...

    Perhaps I'd better sell it. Looks like one with the same marking went for $4000.00 on GB in April. Seems that "R.P" designation indicates it was issued to WW II RAF Squadron 288, according to the...

    Webley Mk VI R.P stamping

    I've been curious about this "R.P" stamp on the backstrap of my Mk VI for quite a while. Found a lot of bullish on the interwebs, but little was plausible. I'm guessing something like "Regimental...

    Very nice. They are a bit more pleasant to shoot with the 7mm barrel, if you can find one. Also, it is possible to flip the right hand mag plate. It will still operate, but capacity will be reduced.

    It is one of the earlier ones with the small trigger guard, so that's cool, but ouch! Awful steep. If you do get one, and plan to actually shoot it, buy a couple of firing pins. They snap off...
