    A side building used as a powder magazine got dilapidated rather quickly when it exploded two years after his death under mysterious circumstances. I was out there a few years back, and the remaining...

    I've one of the Danish police ones as well. Came with the same type holster. Fun to shoot, as it's so heavy. I managed to break it's extractor, but found a replacement with little trouble.

    Very good to see. Hooked my niece with a 10-22 with a red dot. It's fun when you actually hit stuff, especially reactive targets. Her current favorite is a SIG P365. It fits her smaller hand, and she...

    Current ruler of the house. Wandered in the door twelve years ago. Never left. Luckily, she allows me to stay, provided I perform my chores.

    As OldPaul says, interesting design. The "safety" button acts only to manually activate the grip safety, which, when depressed, clicks off, and does not reset itself. Think this one spent some time...

    Looks like metal is peened over the plunger pin. Might be a thin flange of material holding it in. Can you push the pin in and dress the inside edge of the hole?

    The Old Man's study. On it's shelves were his B-17 gunner's leather flight helmet, goggles, and oxygen mask (on one of those styrofoam heads). Rows of books on military history and a box of flak...

    I'd probably go after the other side of the fit, and paint the bayonet lug of one rifle with Magic Marker or some such, and see where it rubs off. That might point you to the tight dimension of the...

    Perhaps I'd better sell it. Looks like one with the same marking went for $4000.00 on GB in April. Seems that "R.P" designation indicates it was issued to WW II RAF Squadron 288, according to the...

    Webley Mk VI R.P stamping

    I've been curious about this "R.P" stamp on the backstrap of my Mk VI for quite a while. Found a lot of bullish on the interwebs, but little was plausible. I'm guessing something like "Regimental...

    Very nice. They are a bit more pleasant to shoot with the 7mm barrel, if you can find one. Also, it is possible to flip the right hand mag plate. It will still operate, but capacity will be reduced.

    It is one of the earlier ones with the small trigger guard, so that's cool, but ouch! Awful steep. If you do get one, and plan to actually shoot it, buy a couple of firing pins. They snap off...

    Got four or five of the red (training?) ones. I have no worries about longevity with these, as the cardboard appears well protected. Certainly hard to lose.
