The Rossi Trapper and Reloading .38 Again

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

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 […]

Finished Aging the Winchester 94

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

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 […]

Resisting Intolerance of Fundementalist Islam

Sunday, December 12th, 2004

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.

Not All Camo Is Woodland or Desert Pattern

Sunday, April 25th, 2004

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 […]

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)….
