  1. I am coming home this weekend and will grab my books to bring up to Massachusetts. If anyone's kid needs a science project I am now working at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
  2. I'll have about 6 unfired savage enfields, 2 in the factory cardboard, going up on the wts section in about a month. Time to thin the herd a little
  3. It may be a few days as I am hectic with moving out of state and heading to France to begin filming.

    Why an AR?

    So you can compete with your wife in who's Tupperware is better
  5. BMW, BEAUTIFUL DOT! Hows it shoot? know the history?
  6. I know that I am not the only C&R nut on here and its been too quiet lately so lets start a picture thread of some of your last purchases in the past 6 months. I'll start with a few that came from the same auction house at the same auction and everyone was interested in tactical tupperware. All of the rifles came home for less than 100 each. First a 1939 Commercial BSA No1 MkIII Enfield target rifle, non import marked- Bore is mint, but I bought it knowing headspace was bad. After swapping the bolt head it is now nice .067 British P14 target rifle made by Winchester - beautiful bore, bluing, everything and last but not least a rare bird, a Steyr 95/24 straight pull. The 95/24's were rebuilt by the Yugo's and are chambered in 8mm mauser. The bore is just OK, but damn this thing shoots nice! On Saturday I was hitting my 3" gong at 100 every shot. For iron sights I consider that to be pretty good.
  7. A few years ago matt6669 and I put one together in my shop. There was a thread somewhere on here, but anyways it was a Yugo receiver, a Chinese barrel, Albanian bolt, Russian bolt carrier and other assorted parts. The rifle shoots like a dream and it shows there really isn't much of a difference between parts other than barrels. If looking for a shooter it comes down to non chrome lined(Yugo) and chrome lined(the rest) barrels. Parts are interchangeable and work together.
  8. Remember you can't spell SCUM without USMC... Coming from a squid that worked extensively with Marines.
  9. I would be going to France, They are on location for 4 months, and I will be there for 6 weeks. I am hoping this gets my foot in the door in the industry. On a side note, y'all would be amazed how many of the Hollywood types are pro 2A
  10. So I got layed off from the oil patch due to oil prices but this time I think it happened for a reason. I got hooked up with a few friends that introduced me to the Baldwin brothers, and it expanded from there. I got a part time job as a on set WWI firearms expert for a film that is set to start filming in France in January. I have a pre- production meeting in NY next week and I'll learn a bit more. I can't say a title yet, but it has some major names in it. I will keep y'all updated on my progress. On a side note I guess it gives me an excuse to expand the collection a little
  11. No hit but it is close to a few serials that were SAA barrel fitting test on August 25 1946
  12. That one was one of the rarer WW1 variations made in 1918 US material marked with original stock. Most of the WW1 guns were not US marked. The WWII were takedown models and had a beefier wrist. The store had it on the shelf without the heat shield marked as a reproduction because the US is hand stamped. Everything I knew was saying the gun was legit. I bought it on a whim for a couple hundred and the serial number was actually in my SRS books. Inventoried at Hickam Field in 1939. The hardest part was tracking down a real heat shield and bayo lug but, that was a whole different battle.
  13. The originals are out there and do pop up. I fell into this one last year
