    Jon, somewhere I've seen a picture of an open crate of Carbines with those protectors on them. Could have been in one of the WB books - not sure. Don't have time to look for it right now, but if it...

    I figured it must be March 70, but I'm new to these guns and not familiar with the time frame for Anniston doing them. The date on that first one though, is October 1980. - Bob

    Jeep, what do you think about the one pictured above on the right? It looks like an incomplete date stamp on that one - been wondering what the the "3 7" stands for - ever seen one like that before?...

    That information may be in "Bayonet Points" - all I can remember right now is the lower the numbers, the earlier they were made. - Bob

    Here's some pics of a Utica US M3 (Type 3) that I bought in 2012 for $100 at a gun show. It was a bit rough but an honest example of the "real deal" - I sold it in 2018 for $250 and wish I hadn't...

    Question on Anniston Date Codes

    My understanding is that the ANAD date code for the pistol shown on the left is October 1980. What's the date for the other one? Do these stamps indicate reworks, or just inspections? Thanks! -...

    Maybe the holes are for pins that would lock or deactivate it? It might still work with a pin in the hole farther from the handle but with a different sound. I've never seen one of these before. -...

    I had my RIA "Rock" apart a couple years ago. When I first got it, I thought some of the parts (MIM) looked like they were made out of plastic. When I got it apart I found out they weren't! - it's...

    Not sure it would hold up on a Carbine extractor, but look at all the manufacturers now putting MIM (metal injection molding) parts in their guns. New pistols for $200 and they seem to work OK. - ...

    I'm not certain, but I think each individual engine had it's own crankshaft, but they were all connected (somehow) to a common shaft running down the center of the layout. We had an 8 cylinder...

    I just checked the few steel 45 cases I have and compared them with '06 - almost exactly the same like DaveHH mentioned. Several of the head stamps are "TW 5" for Twin City 1955, if I'm reading...

    I've only broken one on a Carbine and I'm pretty sure that's what caused it. I did shoot quite a bit of it in a Mini 30 without extractor trouble. I think it was about $1.30 a box for the 7.62x39...

    Even the last one JimF had was missing the magazine, IIRC. Those mags must be pretty darn rare - think he had one made up from wood for his show displays. He said his 2X Carbine was made of wood...

    Shooting 22 LR in a 22 WMR Revolver?

    The NRA ran an article the other day on the S&W 648-2 revolver which is chambered in 22 WMR. The article suggests you can also shoot 22 LR with it. How does that work? Wouldn't that bulge or split...
