    I was curious as to why the butt was loose in the first place...shrinkage, no washer inside... I'd want to remove it and see.

    Our problem here is...will ANY of it be worth ANYTHING in a few years. The way they keep devaluing things in our line of interest...? I mean in my case.

    Barrel looks to have been polished and blue but it could just be reflection. Bolt has been jewelled but that can be bead blasted off. It's been drilled and tapped for that rear sight, that takes...

    From what I remember, single snap canvas pouches were in use with .45 mags. Certainly earlier. The double snap were gone and that leather one was strictly MP as you suggest. I bought all mine from...

    I agree with post #2, cleaning and let it dry first. I don't think Minwax has enough stain or color to do it though. If you have a MUCH lighter piece you could use die to bring it closer. Then a...

    How successful would that actually be? One might see the shadow later? Or not...

    So out to give it a wring out? Let's have a look then. Should be fine.

    Good luck on that one Bill, know where you're going to start yet? I think I had one of those a while back...in .30 cal.

    One line beside the other, didn't expect you'd have any headspace problem. Certainly not enough to count.

    Well, we rely on your knowledge here of Krags for instance...I just thought they would be more. Like I say, I've never seen one offered up here.

    Nice lookin' rifle over all. Interesting how it still has a gas cylinder lock screw and never got the upgrade, and a short fork follower rod "A" marked...which is correct for Winchester but was...

    I picked up a hardcover some years ago in a group of books for $300CDN and there were several good ones. Brophy, Lee Enfield story, several more. I likely won't upgrade to the new book. I already...

    I'd have doubts it's actually suncorite and I'd just take it off. If it comes off with acetone it's just paint. I prefer blue or park or what remains.
