    I can see where you could see that but I pulled it out of the safe and checked. The L is a scratch. But it is C. E. Weeks, not C. F. Weeks. I'll check that one. C. F. came up empty.

    New pics. I didn't mean to imply it had great finish, just better than the Cabelas photos. I included some photos of the holster and the interior which does not seem to have bluing. I think that's...

    I'm happy with it. The mystery of the extractor still eludes me however. Can't find any reference to a plum unnumbered extractor anywhere. So I don't know if it's a reproduction, a Russian refurb...

    It needs cleaned a bit. Fingerprints all over it. I'll try to get some up over the weekend. Trying to make out the holster manufacturer. Looks like A. FISCHER over GUTES.... over 1940. Waffen...

    I don't like it much. Tonight was an adventure in stupidity. Instead of getting the usual old guy that I like, I get this millennial kid that had just a touch of attitude. Not that he was rude or...

    It is in. Hopefully I will be able to go look at it/pick it up this evening. Without any advice to the contrary, I will most likely go through with the purchase unless inspection shows some problem...

    I'd put a 8 on that one. 10 being mint out of the arsenal and 9 being a museum piece. It's close to being a 9 metal wise for most of it. My big area of concern is the front 7 inches of the rifle. ...

    I think it unlikely there is an import mark. They didn't mention one and I can zoom in on the original photos large enough to see two numbers of the serial number on each side view. I also can see...

    Credit card has been charged for the transfer so it's on it's way. These are the website photos. It won't win any beauty contests, blueing is worn as is the straw finish but I can't see any pitting...

    I was getting a bit worried. It was still showing as available but it's now changed to pending and moved from Wisconsin to my local Cabelas. I know it isn't physically there yet, won't be shipped...

    You might try cross posting to the bayonet section. More knowledgeable specialists might know there.

    1914 Efurt Luger 4 inch barrel

    I can't afford a Luger, period. So I've been saving up points and gift cards for several years at Cabelas and after spotting half a dozen that looked good that were already spoken for by the time I...

    Didn't know about these but found a nice set on ebay made in 1945 I have coming. Thanks for the tip. I've been slowly gathering canteens and mess kits since I'm running out of bayonets and helmets.

    Hard to tell from the photos if this will work with your barrel but you can give it a try.

    The first attempt to remove rust I use is scraping it off. Some guys insist on using softer metals like...

    I also concur that $650 is high but not out of line. Bayonets depending on arsenal and condition can run anywhere from $60-200, seem to average around $100, original frogs are very difficult to find...

    Watch ebay constantly. Set up the search, check it daily. I've eventually gotten most all of my missing hard to finds that way. May take months, may take years but eventually, one will show up.

    I think if Nepal followed British standards which seems likely at least, this should have a white sling with a brass buckle on it, something I can't locate. Other option would be black sling with...

    I think this is four coats of BLO and then polished with a soft cloth. I did very little sanding to the stock other than the wrist area after I was done gluing. I did nothing to the brass other...

    Garand Cleaning Kit

    I picked up a 1944 dated cleaning rid case that has some rods and accessories in it but I suspect it is not correct. Anyone have a correct inventory for what is supposed to be in it along with...

    It's a smoothbore and what I can see looks good. I have no intentions of firing this. I can almost get my thumb inside the barrel. I did get the BLO to shine a bit and took some photos yesterday...

    Nepalese Brunswick Musket

    IMA put these on sale for $150.00 off about two months ago and I bit. The big selling point was the bayonet which by itself seemed almost worth the total cost for the two items.

    Yes, we did have a discussion on one and you found it. It was my rifle. How I remembered the discussion but not that it was mine I'll attribute to my minor stroke. A 24/47 is a 24 that went through...
