    I don't know what to tell you. Looks like the barrel has been shortened a few inches and I haven't heard of them doing that. Front sight resembles those used on Spanish rifles but it isn't an exact...

    A lot of history disappeared during WWII not even counting the actual war damage. I collect milk bottles and anything dated before 1945 is considered rare. Recycling drives cleaned up the dumps,...

    Skipped the yard sales this morning. It's been a rough week and I was tired out. Early afternoon, we stopped at a few antique markets that weren't open on the 4th weekend when we went. Picked up a...

    I asked directly years ago and was told no. Didn't make sense then, doesn't make sense now. But not my page.

    I just get a kick out of the French creating the MAS 36 so it can't be messed with by the troops and they never noticed the troops could manage to incapacitate two rifles by locking them together...

    I brought a lot of war trophies home although they aren't really in the traditional sense. I'm a carpenter, or jack of all construction trades. We operated a cannibalization yard during Desert...

    I don't think the 308 converted MAS 36's have problems, it's the MAS 49/56 semi autos that tend to have problems.

    Considering the uniqueness of most French firearms, I am of the opinion they...

    I am slowly coming to the conclusion that they want a civil war in the United States. For what purpose I have no idea but they are attempting to bring back mask mandates and over half the nation is...

    I like them. I realize they are not necessarily true but that they follow things pretty closely and make it a bit more personal. The history I'm confident is accurate.

    I forget what the deal was with the refrigerator trucks and the body bags. It wasn't what they made it out to be, that much I remember. It most certainly wasn't common. There were maybe half a...

    One thing I'm finding fascinating is the extreme difficulty I'm having finding the death data for the United States. Several trackers stopped tracking in March. The CDC doesn't even have a link I...

    Heck, I can go to 100 yard sales over weeks and find nothing interesting. This may make it look like it's easy but it isn't. I also live in an area with a lot of antique shops plus I go out of my...

    German 1888 Commission Rifle

    They are all German technically but a lot of those around today were transferred to Turkey which is what I have already. This one was missing from my collection, a non-transferred 88. All matching...

    If it were mine, I'd leave it alone. There are apparently enough examples of actual military plating that I'd just go with that story. Can't be proven but can't be disproven either.

    I was wondering about that today when I picked up some lumber. An 8' 2x12 was $56. Current price on an 8' 2x4 is $10. They were around $2 when the pandemic started. I don't think these prices can...
