    The grain isnít *quite* right for the most common rosewood of the era (Brazilian).

    Google Translate has auto-detect capability.
    In this instance it did a pretty good job. The only word it had trouble with was Kropatschek.

    I'm surprised they were able to stay under the radar for an entire auction.
    You can't sell magazines over 15 round capacity on eBay...or at least you're not supposed to.

    Iím a dealer and my main source of inventory is auctions.

    Sometimes you can stumble onto weird stuff like this through a strategic google image search.

    Anyone tried paint stripper? The mean kind that burns your skin if you get it on you...not the environmentally friendly citrus stuff, of course.

    Maybe it's just the pictures but that doesn't look like parkerizing from here. It looks more like a duracoat type paint. I think I can see a chip in the handguard retaining ring, even.

    Any way...

    All Utah Ordnance 30-06 is corrosive.
    Should be easy enough to clean up a bolt gun when youíre done shooting though. Burn it up!

    That is indeed an important question.

    Yes? So they were all purchased by one company and they were all shipped to another.
    That's what I find peculiar.

    Hi all,

    I guess I could find a Colt forum to post this on but I don't really post anywhere else so I thought I'd ask here!

    I just received a letter for my Colt 1903 (manufactured in 1941).

    I'd have to say no.
    $100 more and you can find one in military issue condition.
    Might be a neat "fun gun" for about $125.

    It feels like an early design. Circa 1870 or so.
