S&W Joins .308 AR Market

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Even someone who prefers the FAL as an MBR I wouldn’t mind seeing one of S&W’s .308 AR’s in my collection….

D.C. Resident Orders TV on Amazon, Receives Gun

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Maybe I should be ordering more from Amazon? I mean who doesn’t want a Sig Sauer SIG716??? I mean it wouldn’t replace an FAL or anything, and it’s not like it’s an LMT or FN MK17– but I wouldn’t kick it out of my safe for the price of a television…

FN-FAL Short Gas System Barrel

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

Some time back I picked up a set of DSA short handguards and packed them off with an Imbel barrel to be properly hacked up. I won’t go into depth on the long road that it’s been but suffice it to say the Imbel barrel simply wasn’t adaquate to the task and finding a worthy […]

African Hunter

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

Though read Cooper regularly I’ve never gotten that desire to hunt big deadly things on the Dark Continent. But a link on a bulletin board about a 4-Bore double rifle caught my eye. From that link I found the African Hunter website run out of Zim and with some very good writing. I was particularly […]

Two Down

Saturday, November 15th, 2003

The second G1 Stock from the last kit purchase is complete! The process with this one is very similiar to the last. The stock was chemically stripped and then soaked out and allowed to dry. The cracks were sealed and filled with multiple layers of super glue. The color this time is 1 part each […]

Couple more G1’s

Sunday, October 19th, 2003

I’m a sucker for the G1 though I’m not sure why. It’s my favorite of the FAL variants. These kits were aquired through a Fal-Files Group Buy. Overall condition of these kits is good though there are few missing small parts. These kits are in some ways not as good as the pair from […]

New FAL’s completed!

Monday, June 9th, 2003

I finally got my 2 babies back from being parkerized and put back together. On the way to the range (about 50 ft from where the pics were taken) I snapped these for my website and thought I’d share. This is a reasonably comprehensive recap of the notes in the various image galleries built along […]

Parkerizing in Indiana

Friday, June 6th, 2003

I was fortunate to find someone in Indiana that does parkerizing. AJ in Carmel has now done 2 complete rifles and one parts kit for me. The parkerizing is the gray zink variety such as is normally found on M1 Garands or Springfield 1903’s. There were a few problems with the parts I had AJ […]

Aussie Wood

Tuesday, April 8th, 2003

The project to restore a set of Aussie 1st Pattern “coachwood” stocks is finally done!. Not bad for $20 wood (plus $15 for the original butt plate and screws)….
