    When U-505 was brought to Chicago under tow, we saw it as it passed Sarnia. We were on the banks of the St. Clair River, under the Blue Water Bridge. Some time later, we went to Chicago, and toured...

    Those plans do have errors.
    Perhaps the best single source would be David S. Findlay's Firearms Anatomy Book II The Sten Submachinegun. (Book I is the M1A1 Thompson).

    Checked the reference to the Paterson conversion. It was done in Texas, and is in a museum in Oklahoma. Two reproductions of it have been made by RL Millington. Don't think the one pictured above...

    That is an ambitious conversion. One of my books shows a modern Paterson conversion - real custom work.

    I wanted a barrel with a true .357 groove diameter for my project. Took a '51 .44 barrel...

    If I were going to rebarrel a M-10, I think I'd go with .284 groove diameter, to take advantage of the wide variety of bullets readily available.

    It is one thing for an enthusiast to machine a Mk. II barrel shank on a manual lathe, quite another to manufacture barrels. It would no doubt be possible to set up a modern machining center to do...

    Given the breech configuration of a II*** barrel, it would take real commitment for a manufacturer to set up to make them.

    The Italian percussion proof loads would be black powder - that is all that is used in these percussion guns. As remanufactured to use cartridges, pressures should be kept at or below that level, as...

    I'm in the process of setting up a Pietta '51 in both .38 and .45, using Kirst parts. Going to try HBWCs in the .38, see how they work, before deciding about installing a liner. Have a piece of...

    Nicely done!
    I remember those Legal Defender kits being advertised.
    In addition to hollow based bullets, there is the option of heeled bullets, as well as sleeving the barrel to correct .38...

    The scope appears to be intact, blued finish, and as far as I can see, completely original. It has a star, hammer & sickle, etc., No. 5, with a serial number and 1939. Heavy thing.

    Unusual Sported Ross

    A friend brought me a rifle to get my opinion about it.
    It is a Mk. II Ross creatively end extensively sporterized by a skilled amateur. Decent workmanship.
    It also had a telescopic sight mounted....

    FWIW, it is a Sportco front sight base. I think a Sportco barrel would have enough meat to thread for a II** action.

    You could try WTB ads here, on CGN, on GOC.
    Might turn up parts.
    Keep in mind that if the Gov't follows through with its campaign promises, the project will be a no-go.

    Mk. III rifles have conventional right hand square threads, so it would be possible for barrels to be set back and rechambered.
    The unusual barrel threads on Mk. II rifles (apart from II**) would...

    A gunsmith in New England used to install .308 barrels by using the original barrel stump as a bushing, so that is a possibility.

    I suspect that the shoulder of the barrel was relieved to relax the torque, and make the barrel easier to remove. Mk. III Rosses and P'14/M1917 Enfields have a reputation being challenging to...
