  1. Laser Engraving--2A Engraving, Epping NH (Fantastic Outfit)

    Also--do you stock quality foam for Pelican cases? How does the process work--should someone show up with foam/rifle/accessories? Should they sketch the layout with a Sharpie?
  2. Laser Engraving--2A Engraving, Epping NH (Fantastic Outfit)

    Made an appointment over the telephone yesterday, and stopped by 2A Engraving in Epping early this evening. Tony Bourgoine runs the shop, he does excellent, detail-oriented work, and he will do it on the spot, while you wait. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Very smart dude, very attuned...
  3. Help with a Garand stock in Wmass

    One word of caution on sanding--don't sand the lockup areas--the bearing areas where the trigger group and the receiver heel sit, with one exception--you CAN (and probably should) relieve the top of the stock, but ONLY from the inletting for the receiver legs back to two inches in front of the...
  4. Help with a Garand stock in Wmass

    Brand new production Garand stock? I hit it with 100 grit, to break the glaze on the wood, then gently round off all the sharp corners with 150 or 180 grit--sharp milled corners don't look right on a vintage firearm, so round off all the right-angles. After all the sharp corners are rounded...
  5. M1 Carbines

    If anybody is looking for springs, I've bought from this guy. https://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=262011 I probably have his email address if you don't belong to the CMP (or AR15.com) forum.

  8. Brake / Comp for 14.5" Barrel Recommendations?

    What is it for? Just to get you to 16"? The Troy Claymore makes for a pretty pleasant range gun. https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/77187 And just so you know--that ($41) is an excellent price. If you are doing run-and-gun and need your muzzle to track like a f***en...
  9. Korean M1 Carbine Ammo in Bandoliers

    OK. Who is saying that? I got interested in it in the first place because the CMP says: (SNIP)...(1) The first real problem with Carbine accuracy is the so-so level of ammunition development. The various 1940's, 1950's, 1960's, and early LC70-72 era USGI ammos were made to go bang and cycle...
  10. Korean M1 Carbine Ammo in Bandoliers

    Has anybody spotted the Korean PSD .30 Carbine ammo locally (NH/MA/RI?) in any shops by either the can or by the bandolier? Price? https://www.jgsales.com/30-carbine-psd-korean-110gr-fmj-ammo,-in-bandoleers-of-120rds.-p-104562.html I was hoping some hole-in-the-wall milsurp shop might have it.

  12. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Update/response to MAC1911's conversation query re; gunsmiths: OK. Thanks for the input. After conferring with some very experienced guys on a carbine board, I think I am going to go ahead and handle the most obvious aspects of the repair--and then proceed cautiously with a function-testing...
  13. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Nice save. I just helped a friend restore his dad's Brown Bess (just a Jap import for the bicentennial, but it meant a lot to him, because his father had recently passed. Go-to guy for that was a fellow named Jim Casco, in Middletown Springs Vt. Casco Historical Arms Service. He's like...
  14. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Thank you for the elaboration. I will definitely look into that.
  15. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Don't be retarded. It's probably just the mags.
  16. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Here is the ugly. While giving it a bath in Hoppes, I noted this. I'd like to find a local gunsmith--a REAL gunsmith, who actually knows how to case-harden metal, to address the damage to the left lug rail, and the peening present on the left receiver face in the bolt lug recess...
  17. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Fair enough. This is not my carbine. It belongs to an old-timer with whom I recently struck up a conversation about firearms and shooting. For those who are not fluent with Carbine lot numbers, this Carbine appears to be almost correct, and appears to have a muzzle wear of a little more than...

    NES is a f***ing riot. You guys never fail to fail--no matter how simple the query.
  19. M1 Carbine--Who is the go-to gunsmith in MA?

    Thanks for any input.
  20. Gun storage

    OK. And a concise recitation of his legal options was out of the question....why? Answer: because people who spend all day shitposting to the fruitless ghost town that is NES already know the answer and in the absence of any actual dynamism on the site want to entertain themselves somehow...
