    You must watch "1911". Many Hanyang Mausers and Jackie Chan is the Ahn Yee Ohk Li of all China.

    I watched a good movie about China and Japanicon in WWII but I'll be darned if I can remember the name. The Chinese were all decked out in Germanicon outfits so it was one of the elite divisions. They were getting their butts kicked but one Chinese Captain decided to protect a girls school or something of that nature and ended up being like a one many hit squad. Came out maybe two years ago.

    Good movie. Found it a Wallymart some time back. Also several other Chinese movies about WWII.

    The Flowers of War is the one I was thinking of:

    The Flowers of War review: Christian Bale film proves China can give Hollywood a run for its money | Mail Online

    I really enjoyed it and remember looking up the uniforms/weapons right after watching it and they were pretty accurate. The Germanicon uniforms really threw me off but this is how the elite divisions were equipped early on.

    "City of Life and Death" superb Chinese-made WWII movie. Uniforms and equipment are correct in every detail. The story is very sad, but the movie is well worth watching.

    Gave the metal a good cleaning yesterday. There is no import mark on this rifle. Wondering if that makes it a Korean or Vietnam bringback. How many of these were in the states before the big import. Can't be an accurate rifle the way the bullet drops in the barrel so I doubt anyone has been shooting it for a long time. Haven't done any work on the stock yet. I'm heading to a fun show today and I'll see if I can come up with any parts for anything I need today. It's not one of the biggest shows but big enough some of the parts dealers should be there.

    Just looking at it tells me it was a recent (1990) import. Before Clinton stop Chinese imports. Parts are not easy to find, but do show up on Ebay.

    Well, phooey. It wasn't a Chinese rifle at all. My friend finally found it, but the rifle I was thinking about was a Turkishicon conversion of an '88 Commision Rifle.

    The rifle spent most of yesterday in and out of clamps being glued together and filled. So it should no longer burst into a pile of toothpicks while hanging on the wall. There is only one bolt holding this action to the stock, the tang screw. Other than that it's just the barrel bands. It has a recoil lug in it that has seen it's share of recoil. It's very worn.

    The rifle is presentable again. All cracks are glued. Major ones are filled in. I found an 88 butt plate and a pair of brass screws to mount it. I made a cleaning rod for it and it fits and almost looks like the real deal. These had a cleaning rod with a brass tip which made cutting the slot a bit easier. I got a Turkishicon Mauser hand guard for it. Took a lot of fitting but it now fits and looks correct. I need to do a little downsizing on it so it matches the stock a bit better and get the red stain out of it. The seller threw in a nice repro sling for it that looks nice.

    This rifle is worn, probably more worn than any I've ever handled. Makes me wonder how many thousands of rounds that went through this thing. I have not pulled a bullet to see if one will drop through but it is loose at the muzzle. The trigger pull is extremely light. Made me wonder about the drop test and it did go off once out of about 8 drops. The trigger and sear are both worn. They have a rounded groove where they line up. That has to be a lot of bullets downrange.
