  1. Looking for .32acp

    Looking for .32acp....prefer PPU and Fiochhi, but it doesn't really matter. Have 100 rounds of Swedish Mauser I don't need, as well as some .357. and .38 short for trading. t
  2. And the Complimentary Thread; "My Last Pistol"

    As luck would have it, after six months, I chanced upon my last pistol. Imperial proofed M13 Sauer, serial 81393. The highest Imperial proofed Sauer is 92,907, so we're talking early 1918. Based on the excellent condition it probably came home with a Doughboy. I had passed on a dozen over the...
  3. My Last Rifle

    Had this on layaway for a couple of months until I got the 37 up and running. This is my "last" rifle.....it finishes my WW2 collection save France, which I have no interest in getting. By "last" I may get a Krag some day down the road, but I'm in no hurry. 1922 ex-dragoon, rearsenaled to 91/30...
  4. Reconstructing the 7,65mm Wheel

    The wonders of a part time job during retirement where I get to keep the money for collecting and fixing the 1937 Pontiac...restored gas tank goes in next Tuesday by the way. I've been buying, selling, and trading to build back my 7.65mm (.32 acp) pistol collection, especially the German WW2...
  5. New Acquisitions for February 2021

    Personally, I don't care if you post your new son, dog, or truck....but some do. Pistol 3/3 from recent trading/selling. I'm reconstructing my WW2 German - German Occupation part of 7.65mm (.32acp) pistol collection. This a late 1944 phosphate finish Czech CZ27. Full rig, matched. Illegible Vet...
  6. Go With the Flow; M03 Colt Upgrade

    Sometimes I have to remind myself to look out for other opportunities. I have been so fixed on finding a M13 Sauer, that I kind of forgot other things I was interested in. One of these was upgrading my M03 Colt. I found this early 1906 production and traded my 1920 towards it...net $300 to me...

  8. Did you get a MilSurp in your Stocking?

    Well did he? Thought I’d make this it’s own post...and separate from the Acquisition thread where MilSurps are few and far between. January byf43 K98k, mostly correct. t
  9. What’s your favorite MilSurp carry piece?

    Thought occurred to me as I rotated my Colt Detective Special into my carry queue tonight. I’ve carried all of my hand guns at one time or another, but have found that it’s one of these four I carry most often. The one I use depends on concealability, season, clothing, and whether using a...
  10. Amoskeag Find; matched byf43....a little dissapointing.

    With the reduction in and realignment of my collection, I found myself without an Obendorf made Mauser...which was totally unacceptable. I went up to Manchester on Wednesday 11/25 to take a look at six possible candidates in the auction coming up after Thanksgiving. There were more than two...

  14. Bucket List #1

    I'll admit straight off, it's not a gun. I think those who know me will forgive me this indulgence. Since my heart attack, I have been re-prioritizing my life. Top of the "bucket list" was a pre-war car, something I've wanted since I was a little kid...something about the era and Art Deco...

  16. May be the last one...correct 12/43 Remington M03A3

    Sold a Mauser and picked up this nice Remington M03A3. 12/43, correct blue and park finish, lightly used, and two arsenal visits OG and either AAA or SJA. As with the M17 Winchester, I had to remove a coat of shellac and rub in some BLO. Only thing that's missing is the stacking swivel, which is...
  17. A little early...100th birthday shooting

    By my calculations, she doesn’t turn 100 until November. But as I’m having my third surgery this year on September 1st, this time on my shooting left rotator cuff, I figured I’d better get out there. Of all things I injured it planting bulbs In March. Tweaked it mowing in July, and then finally...

  19. A little more class never hurts a classic....

    Found a pair of original worn wood and silver medallion grips for my 1915 Colt .380. They dressed it up a little and actually are more comfortable than the bakelite grips. Shot 3 magazines each today of Remington JHP (88/955/190), and PMC ball (90/961/181). Both were light loads and had little...
