Now the Rossi .357 is all put back together after refinishing its wood and I was waiting on that Brownell’s order to get the replacement rear sight which came in Wednesday with the 94 loading gate screw. Thing is once I got the sight listed as the stock replacement for Rossi’s I noticed it was [...]

After scrubbing the last of the finish off the receiver and degreasing I soaked it overnight in some naval jelly to etch and matte the metal to lessen the impact of the 3M abrasive marks. Then I blued it with Birchwood Casey’s Perma Blue. I tried the Super Blue first and didn’t care for the [...]
Seems the UK elite are resisting Intolerance of Fundementalist Islam. The problem with stupid people is that too often when they go down they take innocent bystanders with them.
One of the advantages of an occassional rainy Saturday afternoon is time to persue an abstract thought. Though my FALs are well documented my love of John Browning’s 1911 often takes second chair in the galleries. So I figured it was time to get at least a few images of 1911′s. The full sized Springfield [...]
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 [...]

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 GunThings.com [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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)….
After an evening with the digital camera I have added a Gallery section with my recent FAL parts and accessories aquisitions. Click on the Image Gallery link at the right, then FN-FAL Parts, or click here to view without the frame.
