  1. AK And SKS Collector Discussion Board
    I picked up this SKS a few years ago, I paid very little money for it and from what it looks like it's mostly all matching if not fully. The little bit of research I've done on it didn't really help me at all. However the main reason I'm here is I want to know what mine really is, how old it is...
  2. The Lee-Enfield Forum
    I know the 92 is a rack number and 6 39 in adoption date but what does SHE LNS mean? Only person I’ve seen identify these was Tony E, any way to contact the guy running his website now?
  3. Shotgun Forum (military and commercial)
    This is the next chapter in an ongoing saga with this 1897, (Now dubbing it the 1890-Lemon) we have spent the past month or so fighting with it to make it work right, the saying I heard from an old Winchester '97 smith could not be more true: "Fine tuning an 1897 is closer to black magic". So...
  4. Workbench Forum
    Hello, not sure if this is the best forum to post this in, but I picked this Model 1900 Revolver up today from a parts bin at a Flea Market and wanted to get some advice on it, like more details about it and if everything that should be there is there. I started to take it apart to try and get...
  5. Modern Handgun Forum
    Pistol was part of my uncle's assets when he passed and it needs a new trigger spring but I haven't the slightest clue the manufacturer or model. Can anyone help?
  6. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    Hello, I'm a bit new to the bayonet collecting hobby and recently picked this M1898/05 bayonet up in an online auction. I just got it and am a little confused about the identification marks on the blade, or the lack thereof. I looked it all over and have not been able to find many marks on it...
  7. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    Hello out there. I recently received this dirk/sword from my great aunt and was wondering if one of you experts, out there, could help me identify it. I only have these two photos. Any help would be really appreciated! Thank you so much for your time and have a fantastic day!
  8. Workbench Forum
    I'm asking this because recently I came across an older Model 1897 that tickled my fancy at a gunshop. Pre-1923, full length barrel, appeared to be in working (Although sticky) order and decent looking bore. BUT, one thing I spotted right away was that the toe of the butt stock was black and...
  9. The Lee-Enfield Forum
    I just picked up this piece for cheap, I got it because I've never seen one look like this. That being said I've tried doing research but can find nothing. I'm mainly concerned about the front end barrel and furniture.
  10. Workbench Forum
    This issue is separate from another threat I posted about a problem with the same gun. Anyway, The problem here is that after I replaced the hammer on my Winchester 97, (replacement from a 16 ga., significant?) the hammer would no longer cock. After pumping, the hammer follows the bolt down to a...
  11. Workbench Forum
    (I didn't know if I should put this in the shotgun forum or this one, let me know if it should be moved) I have a late '20s early '30s Winchester 1897, Riot model. And I'm having an issue that I've seen on other 1897s that I don't know how to fix. The Issue: Once the hammer is cocked back, when...
  12. French Firearms Board
    Recently bought this interesting little Belgian or French 7mm(?) pin fire revolver. I've done marginal research on it, and it appears these little guys where made in large numbers thought Europe from the 1860s to the 1890s. Other than that don't know much. The markings I can find on this gun...
  13. Shotgun Forum (military and commercial)
    Just today acquired a lovely older Winchester 1897. appears to have a 20 inch barrel, doesn't look like it was cut. it's marked 'CYL', so that's also a pretty good indication it wasn't cut. the barrel appears a 1910, and the receiver a 1937 production? not sure. the pump slide is marked...
  14. Weapons of the British Commonwealth
    Not sure if this is the right forum for this, if not, let me know I recently bought a P-14 rifle (With a P-17 stock) and I have a plethora of questions. I always wonted a P-17, but couldn't afford one. But a found a P-14 that appears to be a reasonable price (650$, is that a good price?) and...
  15. The Lee-Enfield Forum
    Hi, today I bought my very own Lee-Enfield No.4 MK1 Long Branch. Since Enfields are kind of hard to come by where I live, I did not have that much options to choose from. What I ended up with is this gal, full of cosmoline and with bolt that seems to be stiffer than I expected. So here I am to...
  16. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    I was at a garage sale and a guy had this in a box. The bore is .255" ish, and the barrel is defiantly carbine length. There are a bunch of parts also, and he said they were from this rifle and another. Any ID help of what this thing is would be very appreciated. Also what parts go to this thing...
  17. "The American Arsenal" US Weapons - Past & Present
    I’ll attached pics, but this is what’s for sale. It is listed as a Saginaw m1 carbine. Looks like it has a broken sporter stock. Anything else catch your eye about it? How much would you pay for it?
  18. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    I recently purchased a Type 38 that has a monopod on it. It's my understanding that Type 38 rifles weren't issued with monopods so I went through my books and it appears to be a Type 97 monopod. It doesn't look like a repro but I'm just curious to know if its an original or not. Can't find any...
  19. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    A gentleman offered me a bubbad type 99 and what he said was a wartime Type 38 carbine. At first sight it looked like a vet had just cut down a type 38 long rifle but after looking through my copy of "Military Rifles of Japan" I'm pretty sure it's a cavalry carbine. He says that the follower has...
