    Really cool idea! I’ll have to file that one away in the memory bank.

    I don’t have any basis for this but I feel like Skip Shafer may be the photographer for the modeling agency.

    That probably doesn’t really help but there it is.

    Someone posted one here a while back that had been made into a lamp. Including internal threading for the lamp hardware.

    I did the exact same thing. I’ll give it another shot too.

    I love this!
    My drafting/manufacturing background makes me see this as art.

    Very cool!

    I’ve seen a couple videos on relining a 22. It looks, probably, deceptively simple. I’d give it a shot!

    It's not often thought of this way but the venerable 30-06 cartridge is a pretty powerful little bomb.
    I would 100% NOT trust this rifle to contain that bomb again under any circumstance.

    Agreed! That’s a fine price. You have a lot of room dollar wise to get the parts you need.

    I’m jealous...mainly because I have nice C-stock sitting here waiting for me to find a rifle just like...

    I’d second the 38 special idea. That would be just too cool in a trapdoor.

    I take it you got a good deal on it as a cut down 50-70.

    In my opinion this would translate to a fantastic price...

    I do not believe the number on the butt is original.
    Wartime or no, these Colts has better quality control than stamp the numbers all misaligned like that.

    The receiver markings on a genuine 03A4 are spaced such that they’re not covered up by the scope mount.

    That’s the only thing to look for if you’re concerned about having the genuine article. ...

    WTB: Smith and Wesson J-Frame Grip Adapter

    Hey all,
    I have a really ragged Smith and Wesson 36 I’d like to add a grip adapter to.
    Problem is, I don’t want to put a shiny new accessory on a nicely worn firearm.
    Anyone have a used, beat up,...

    The saga continues.

    The seller is looking at a pretty tight profit margin...even if it goes for the buy it now price. Tighter than I like to work!

    You’ll need to line the barrel anyway for a 22. So yes, it would 100% handle a 22.
    The question really is, how much is that worth to you? Do you want to spend $500 converting a $25 paperweight...

    Searching sold listings on GunBroker isn’t as streamlined as it is on eBay.

    First, select “advanced search” near the search bar. Then select “completed listings.”

    This is the real shortcoming...

    I’d take a hard pass on the 1903. It’s not worth anything near that.

    You’re definitely ahead of the game on the Winchester. I browsed through some sold listings on GunBroker just now. I’d put...

    Buy it. If you have regrets, someone else will give you $300 for it.

    Looks pretty good to me! I love the script font used for the serial numbers on the early 1903s.

    I've had my eyes out for an early one like this. I have a pretty deep stable of nice 1903 sporters...
