    You really are challenging the memory. There are the obvious screws on the bottom. I believe there is a piece that goes vertically into the stock and is pinned horizontally. You have to take the...

    Correct, the shovels didn't come with the jeeps and they were painted by the procuring unit. Most sources I've seen said the metal was painted OD and the wood oiled. I've seen some with no paint...

    That looks pretty good. I just don't like the light green even if it is correct which I don't believe it is. Doesn't look right.,

    I've been looking for one of these for two years and found this one in my shed a couple of weeks ago, probably a cheap yard sale purchase before I knew what they were. I probably paid $5 for it as...

    You can differ all you want but odds are they are manufacturers codes as they fit right in line with known examples, and another has actually identified them as such. What's the point of this...

    Not a coincidence at all. The codes were assigned, and the numbers provided by the website fit in the missing known list perfectly.

    The Oiler is Yugo. If it was grouped together, it's probably all Yugo.

    I don't think a K98 will fit in a later Yugo stock. They are medium length actions. Can't say I ever tried either.

    I don't think they did normally scrub the K98 rebuilds, not completely anyway.

    I have one and can't find any visible means of connection on the outside which leads me to believe that it was a screw under the barrel that holds it in place. It's been a couple of years since I...

    In the US they were all over the place about 5-10 years ago, pretty common. Not sure the M stands for Maltby. They used M prefixes on a lot of wartime bayonets. for different manufacturers. I was...

    May not have seen any service. A lot of these have been sold recently still in the paper. This was probably one of them.

    I actually found a test site so I guess I'll know one way or the other, probably after I'm out of quarantine. Not doing anything today or tomorrow in any case. I'm feeling a lot better. Never had...

    Well, I can't confirm I have Covid but the doctor seems to think I do. I did a telecall this morning. Based off all my symptoms it's an acute sinus infection, a bad one. There are no testing...

    Second knife with sheath arrived about an hour ago. I think it will clean up OK. It is a Camillus 1967. I have the worst of the rust scraped off and it is sitting with some oil soaking at present....

    I found another beat up knife in an early scabbard. Hopefully it will clean up, both the knife and the scabbard. Appears the knife is either a 67 or an 87, can't tell because of the rust but the...

    One sold in Australia for over $800 US dollars. That one was rusted. They called it age patina I think. I thought that price was ridiculous.
