    chamber insert for 32 ACP and 32 S&W

    I like the chamber insert for 32 ACP and 32 S&W, excellent for short ranges and a low report when used outside. Either jacket or lead bullets are accurate. Also nice if you have a basement range...

    Bayonets were not a serial numbered accountable item like weapons, binoculars, compass etc. Charlie Painter would know if M1 carbines with

    The SA GHS cartouched stocks were very difficult to find in the 1990's and even more difficult now. I would guess more SA GHS cartouched stocks were

    Check under the barrel for a date: example 42 would be 1942 and of course the caliber will be marked.
