    Beretta M1951

    Just picked this one up at probably the last gun show I'll ever have reason to visit here in Colorado. The current regime has enacted a three day waiting period, so any milsurp vendors without a local brick and mortar location will not return again. So many here have seen this sort thing, and worse yet, occur where they live. One more domino falls.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ...

    Nice piece, one of the few I always wanted but never found. Yes, they are looking to disable the gunshows everywhere.

    Been on the lookout for one for some time as well, but mostly ran across Helwans, and commercial ones made for export at that. This one is Italianicon police marked, and has seen quite of bit of holster time, but little shooting. This will change. I find the little P38 type locking block kinda cute.

    First two mags at 15 yards. Seems to work just fine, better than the shooter. He needs to get out more. The hole at the top? Yep, botched a reset.

    I have sol;d a ton of those. Still have a bunch of parts an I think a few frames left. Might have a few in inventory left hiding somewhere. They went sky high over the last few years. Remember buying them at 25.00 each in the crate when they came into country.

    That was one reason I wanted one, they seemed a good value and the pre 92 model. Just a simple pistol.

    Might be nice to have a spare locking block. I've cracked and broken a few on 92's. Don't know if these do the same, but...

    The locking blocks i am out of. But you can get the new style blocks online. An you do not have to buy a new guide rod. Just remove the lip part off the old rod an it will work on the new style lock block.
    I have lots of Guide rods,springs, Barrels some small parts left. Had bought the last 100 plus frames that were left from the whole sale dealer a few years ago.
