It was labeled as "custom" This one is Chambered in .30-06, 27in heavy barrel and weighs over 10 lbs. The trigger is an adjustable Parker Hale but it has some extra stuff going on in...

      New to me Eddystone

      Been on my list for a while. Eddystone with Winchester barrel. Lots of Eddystone parts with a few other Winchester bits. Looks like 1918 manufacture. WWII refurb. I love me a big Ox of a rifle. Not like those tiny ass Mausers.

      What kind of shotgun?

      I was just watching Midsomer Murders and they had a character loading a type of double barrel shotgun that I've never seen. It wasn't the traditional break open. It had a push/pull lever that opened the action. Any ideas ? Sorry for the crappy pic

      Garand build

      Last week I went down to Anniston and got to build a Garand at the CMPs advanced maintenance class. It ended up being pretty pricey and cost me some vacation time but I had a good time and learned a good bit. Everyone I interacted with at the CMP were very pleasant. The gunsmiths were very...

      Vetterli

      Who has one? Who has successfully shot it? A friend of mine has one. He bought on a whim. Bought some ammo but it wouldn't fire. Seemed like it wasn't actually striking the cartridge. Basically looking for info/ideas. Any good resources?

      Offhand support hand grip?

      CMP/highpower type offhand shooting. What grip are you using with your support hand. My question is specifically about a Garand but I'm open to discussions on AR rifles also as I'm struggling a little with that also. I generally just lay the rifle on my flat outstretched palm but I've seen...

      Shotgun ID help

      So what do we have here. It appears to be a pinfire shotgun? The bore is around 5/8 in. Barrels are about 26in long. Lots of scrollwork in the receiver. Lots of carving in the wood inclining a bad ass boar in the bottom of the buttstock. There is writing on the top of the rib between the...

      Sporterized 1903

      Just had a sporterized 03 fall into my lap. Looks like it was set up with a target rear sight at some point. Wasn't tapped for a scope. I'm thinking I'm going to try and put it back to its sporterized condition. I have some questions for guys who might know about what they did to these things...

      Which lever gun

      I've wanted a lever gun for a long time. The main variable is caliber. I've considered .22LR because I used to shoot it a lot and it would probably see the most use. I thought about .357 because I had plans of getting a matching revolver. Now that I'm an HQL refusenik (I'm open to arguments)...

      1903A3 sight hood & stock ?s

      Ok so I definitely want to replace the S stock on my 03A3. I'm leaning toward an aftermarket C stock. Any recommendations on which one/where to get it? Sight hoods. So I'm not crazy about how unprotected the front sight blade is. When I got it it was bent. I straightened it out but just...

      9mm Largo? Free to food home

      I was given 100 rounds of what I think is 9mm Largo. The guy found it while cleaning out a dead relatives house. He thought it was 9mm Luger and gave it to me since he has no 9mm at all. Had stamp appears to be FMT 1949. Its in plain white boxes but they are embossed with Midway on the inside...

      Name that rifle

      Saw this recently in an article about the Ukraine. Very AK like but the front half of the receiver looks odd. Looking at the barrel I was thinking maybe tear gas or flare gun but it seems weird to scope one of those. [ATTACH]117404

      Cartridge ID help

      So years ago my wife inherited some stuff from a relative. One old toolbox contained lots of ammo and other stuff. Some of the stuff looks like it came from his time in the service in WW2. I am just curious what some of these rounds are. The bottom two look like .30-06 and .30 carbine. Don't...
