It's been a while since I have been on the forums So I figure Why not start some pictures. The stacks would have looked better if they were all the same rifles, But I don't own enough of any one type of rifle. The Japanese stack probably would have looked better with two Type-38's and a Type-30 since they are closer in size, But I figured two Type-99's and a Type-38 fit better next to two M1 Garands and a M1903A3 Springfield.
(The M1's are Korean War vintage not WWII which would technically not make them old enemies but I figure it was close enough for artistic purposes)
SHUFF’S MINI-G W/ SCOUT RAIL The Mini-G is a completely new Garand carbine conversion. The key to successfully shortening the M1 Garand lies with precise bending of the op-rod. The process used in making a Shuff’s Mini-G bends the op-rod consistently to the perfect dimensions every time, ensuring that no reliability is sacrificed in the conversion process. The front handguard is also removed completely, rather than leaving a stumpy modified nub as with the old-style Tanker conversions. To further ensure reliability, the Mini-G conversion includes a Schuster adjustable gas lock screw so that you can tune your Mini-G to run reliably with whatever ammo you choose.

I have a CMP M1 Garand that came with a new Boyd Stock. I disassembled the stock and can see in the hidden areas that the stock was stained.
Does anyone know if they also applied any finish on top of the stain and if so what type of finish it is?
To my completely untrained eye it looks like stained raw wood but it would be great to get some expert opinions on this.
Thanks in advance.
Great news. I received an email from CMP that they received my order for a Garand. They are saying it will be at least 30-60 days. I can wait. At least I got it in before the deadline. The order was received 05/16 (the last date for orders) so I will probably get one of the last ones they build (until they open it up again). I have to pickup some ammo now.
Does anyone know (first hand please) if my fiance takes my name once we're married will she have to go through the whole process to change her name on her FID? And if so, what of her pistols? Same thing there? And during the process is her possession in limbo? And since her driver's license is the means of ID for the process once she gets that changed and it doesn't match her FID until she gets the new one is issued is she a criminal for the multi-month process for a new FID card? See the goofy questions they force us to face?
Reading this thread feels like I've taken a wrong turn down a really weird street.
But as for the subject started by the OP, Kerik was on Tucker last night, and he defended the right of lawful gun owners to own magazines holding more than ten rounds.
Question is if he will sign it... likely will, but you never know with Mr Ed.
If he does sign it, then NJ gun owners received an early Christmas present. That is a great case to get up to the Supreme Court, and possibly get it all knocked down. But it really comes down to is if it will be done, or more scaring of the population that the government is coming to get them.
Reading the legislation, up to 17s are allowed for personal ownership/possession. Over 17s are allowed if the officer is issued it for official duty. That part will allow 30s for personal rifles that a Chief approved for duty use.
