    "...Paratroopers dropped through a hole in the floor..." That'd be Brit and Commonwealth Paras. Our(my South) Southern cousins went out the side.

    Makes the rifle easier to catch when they throw 'em over their shoulders.
    Highly unlikely the troopies do anything to the rifles. Those rifles have very likely been the same rifles used by every 3rd...

    Weapons techs have been known to put WarPig1976's Dutchmen of solid wood(that's literally a wood insert) in years. Not veneer though. Veneer is thin stuff and costs too much.

    "...short 10 round STEN magazines are an American thing..." Nope. CF had 10 round mags for our Sterlings. Armoured crew used 'em. I'd be very surprised if the STEN didn't have a 10 rounder for the...

    "..."C in a Circle" - Canadian Ownership..." Nope. The Broad Arrow in a 'C' means Canadian. A "C in a Circle" means nothing. The 'Sold out of Service arrows are Brit. As is the single broad arrow on...

    .32-20 Win ammo is fairly easy to come by. 8mm Lebel revolver ammo is not so easy. Have a beat up old Colt in .32-20.
    The revolver(an S&W or Colt clone) should have stamps indicating a maker. Might...

    Do some measuring. Barrel thickness, etc. That is in far too new condition and manufacturers during W.W. II were marking fanatics.

    The extractor and its spring have nothing to do with ejection. The extractor spring is there to return the extractor to its 'start' position after the case head is under the extractor and after...

    In Ethiopia/Abyssinia, the South Africans were still supplied by the Brits. So were the Kenyans with 'em.

    Icollector sold one last August with the military markings removed for $500Cdn. I would think those markings would add value. Trick is finding somebody who knows it's not a bubba'd No. 4 and wants it.

    "...assume that it's an 03 barrel..." Where is the rear sight? Like tiriaq says, an 03A3 barrel has no rear sight base. The rear sight is on the receiver. An '03 barrel will have a place to install...

    Hi. I've been wondering why they did the D-Day ceremony yesterday instead of today. Very much just decidedly curious.
    Kinda wondering when Liz(or one of her family, like The Duke of Edinburgh.) is...

    Everybody and his brother did something to M70's at one time or another. A heavy barreled .308 isn't exactly unusual.
    That one looks like a Heavy Varmint Rifle. Like this one.

    I'd be thinking (and a very WHAG it is) that it was assembled by somebody Stateside. The BNP stuff dates from before the U.S. GCA of 1968 and the "tiny ".303 British" stamp" on the receiver wasn't...

    Probably not, but who knows?
    Quality only made receivers with the detachable recoil spring tube though. And 28,949 of the receivers Quality used were made by Union Switch & Signal. Stamped...

    "...it needs a smart tug..." Because the ejector is the wee screw on the left rear of the receiver. Isn't part of the extractor.
    The extractor spring has nothing to do with ejection either. It's...

    "...think I did OK..." I'll say. Cost that much for 2 boxes of Tula Carbine ammo.
    "...if I looked hard enough..." It cot anything to list on one of the auction sites? I have no idea.

    INTERARMS(Interarmco) was a huge dealer/exporter of milsurps in general. They make stuff for the British military too?

    "...from a collector view..." There are collectors who want one K98 from every year of manufacture.
    I doubt there was any difference in QC between 1939 Oberndorf rifles and 1945 Oberndorf rifles....

    Considering all the weird stuff people collect(like dinner plates and Coke bottles), it might be worth more to an ammo box collector. Wouldn't think it'd be in the same class as misprinted money...
