    The issue with Century assembled FAL's is their use of parts bins with zero QC(just like the thousands of Lee-Enfields they assembled that had bad headspace.). Century FAL's are known for being...

    The absolute best .303 Ball I've ever fired was 1944 vintage DA issued to my Cadet Corps(which I later Commanded) back in the Fall of about 1980. I was a BNIB Civilian Instructor. It was way more...

    Not sure if it's a good time to be getting into the milsurp business. Governments seem to be surplussing less and less. Especially military kit.

    "...boxes of loaded surplus ammo..." That may or may not be reloadable(might be collector ammo too). Depends on the type of primer. Berdan or Boxer primers. Berdan would be primarily European made....

    Hi. Doesn't matter with a BNIB barrel either. Even a new barrel will have a chamber that's slightly different from another new barrel. Has mostly to do with the wee bit of wear the tooling gets every...

    Like browningautorifle says, yep. Remington Rand made 'em to U.S. Ordnance Dept Spec. Weapons techs did not and do not care who made what part.

    Assuming you're talking about off-the-lands stuff, there is no such measurement. Every rifle chamber is slightly different and every one of 'em prefers a different distance off-the-lands. All of the...

    There's 6.5 Jap data on Hodgdon's site. 100, 120, 140 and 160 grain bullets. Only Hodgdon powders though.

    Hi. Most of that kind of info was unit level personnel records that just were not kept. Especially for an enlisted man from 100 years plus ago. It's like asking who got what rifle(a question that...

    "...information on the soldier..." That probably doesn't exist. Very few such personnel records were kept. And the units have been disbanded for 100 years or so.

    The movie "1917" is going to sell a lot of No. 1 Mk III* rifles. Mines a 1942. Sad part is that the bayonet is worth almost as much as the rifle.

    $325 isn't a great price if it has no scope. MSRP on a BNIB, scoped, synthetic stocked, ADL is $525. Have a look at the price of one in a local shop first.

    It's the copper coming out of the brass alloy. You can brush it off with a toothbrush. Highly recommended you do not use the one you do your teeth with. Isn't a good idea to borrow somebody's either....
