    When I wrote that, I hadn't figured out how to get to those (6) stills quickly - was just pausing the video. Some of the ammo looked too "slim" - more like .30 Carbine and had me confused. Hmmm......

    The Blue Book of Gun Values shows that it started out as "Model 70 Standard" made in 1965. They were available in several calibers including .243 Win. Looks like they were all 5 shot, had a (22 or...

    Once in awhile when I go to eBay, for some reason I see odd prices and then notice I'm on the UK, AU, or the Canadian site. One time it was to check on an item on my "watch list" and it had been...

    I'm late getting back here regarding the Ford "stuff." Our gun club had a show Saturday that I needed to get ready for. I took a few extra carbine items and my 5.6 Winchester for display only. ...

    Charlie, my original '52 headlight "doors" (Ford's name for bezels or rims) were "argent painted steel," kind of a silvery gray. Mine were rusting, so I got the chrome plated ones from of a '51 that...

    Probably pretty close! Remember Fred Sanford's red one? Sounds like you know your Fords! This one is a '52 though, not much difference, and it does have '51 headlight rims. You're right on the...

    That's OK about the oops! After all, this thread actually started off in a different one and continued on here. Question: Why would they have pulled the sight during rebuild? Possibly may have...

    While researching a WWI Mills cartridge belt a couple years ago, I found an article saying that the original looms these were made on had been sold and shipped overseas to India, I believe it was. ...

    There might have been more, but I just saw (2) carbines on display at the OAC show Sunday morning. Both were Inlands with upgrades and a few mixed parts. One was on a vendor's table and priced at...

    Hey, remember I shoot from an old rickety lawn chair, sitting on uneven ground in a gravel pit. Can't see very well either, so maybe rearranging the chair would help, too! At the rate I'm getting...

    I know what you mean by "never been touched," but it'd be hard to explain that gouge at the top of the blade to a layman. Now I'll have to go see if I can take a picture of a sight at that angle,...

    OK, I just checked the height of the blade on my front sight vs. a new one, and found that the blade has been filed down maybe .010"-.012" - that would probably have raised the POI about 2" at 100...

    What vintage? I've got 40's, 50's, and 70's? I've been shooting carbines enough that I don't think I'll see any difference at 25 yds. Thanks! - Bob

    Thanks, Jim. A few are suggesting the front sight is "new" - as in, it's been replaced. It doesn't look like it to me, but it's not important enough to argue about. - Bob

    The actual question was not how to sight in a carbine, but how this carbine escaped getting sighted in. The sight doesn't appear to be a recent addition. I'll check the blade height, but it does...

    On the top of the left rail, Bruce. Looks almost like a mark the jaws of a lathe chuck can leave on a work piece. Possibly from a fixture or vise used in the milling process?? I was also thinking...
