  1. WTB SW 659

    Like the title says. I'm looking to spend about $450, plus or minus, but let me know what you have. No need for extras like lots of mags, etc. I've got a blued 459 I'd offer as a trade, plus $50 from me. These came in a bunch of different configurations, different rear sights, different trigger...
  2. STEN Build: strictly amateur

    Hey gang, Inspired in dual parts by EddieCoyle's recent thread and by sheer boredom, I'm going to try to knock one of these out. Why? 1. I want one. 2. I've always wanted to learn how to weld. 3. I want to be able to speak intelligently on how people make "ghost guns," even though 4. I'll...
  3. Elijah Cummings won’t be down for breakfast.

    Hey, early risers! He’s dead! Congressman Elijah Cummings dies at 68
  4. Randall, en route!

    I got the shipping confirmation today; my Gambler is enroute. 4”, maple handle. NS hilt. I ordered it five years ago and, OF COURSE, it’s going to get stuck in the black hole of Thanksgiving mail delivery while I’m not going to be home. Great timing.
  5. WTS Sperzel locking guitar tuners

    Took these off a recent purchase. 3x3. They’re great; I just prefer the Planet Waves. Say, $35 shipped? They’re pre-ban! I haven’t posted these on TDPRI yet, though that’s my next step if nobody on NES wants ‘em. PM me here.
  6. My new Behring.

    Just got this pocketknife delivered from BMK in Montana yesterday. It’s my second blade by them, plus they rehandled a couple of Randalls. I’m EDCing this one for awhile, plus it’ll go in my sock when I wear a kilt.
  7. My birthday Randall...

    ...so I posted this over in the New Acquisitions thread on the big board, but here’s some extra detail for you knifers out there. I’ve got a thing for Randalls: currently I think I own four, with three more on order. This one arrived today: it’s a used Buxton Fighter, a model 14 variant...
  8. Ballsy French Cop...

    Here’s the link (BBC). TL;DR: ISIS guy takes a hostage in a Carcassonne supermarket. Cop volunteers to swap himself for the hostage. Cop winds up shot and fighting for his life. Whether or not that’s a good tactic, it’s a ballsy thing to do.
  9. Rural Colorado is finally arming teachers...

    It's only a pilot program in one county WAAAY up north, but it's a start. In a purplish state, no less. Provided the participants can avoid any NDs, it'll probably spread to other counties. This means MA will see a similar program by 2088! At least! LINK. I'd sign up for something like...
  10. Zimmerman... Again...

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/04/us/george-zimmerman-claims-punch-in-face/index.html It's been said here before: guy needs to crawl away and just not talk to anyone for about ten years. Dude just can't keep himself out of trouble, but shutting his mouth would help.
  11. Found another Webley...

    So I've found that the problem with collecting Webleys is that each one makes you want a new one, normally a model you wouldn't have looked at twice in the past. My Mk IV.38 was, I thought, all I would want; as soon as I got it, though, I just had to have a .455. Just one. So I got my uncut...
  12. Worcester Art Museum: metal detectors?

    Title says it all, really. We're visiting today, and I was wondering whether I'd get metal-detected at the entrance. Does anyone know?
  13. Pattern 14

    I've been on the hunt for one of these ever since I first read about them in 1997; finally got a good one. It's a 1916 Eddystone WITHOUT a Weedon repair. Everything matches. The "emergency use" stock cartouche is no doubt there because it was obsolete hardware even in WWI, as the rifle...
  14. WTS OtterBox Defender for iPhone 5/5s

    Title says it all. It's brand new and unused, but the box is mislabeled for the 5c on the front. It's got the 5/5s SKU, though, so it's certainly the right product. I took it out of the box long enough to realize it wouldn't fit my 5c, then swore and put it back in the box. It's grey...
  15. A big brother for my Webley

    Well, at long last, I found an uncut Mk VI at a reasonable price so that I can make my Israeli War Finish Mk IV .38 jealous. The only issues are the finish, which is very dull and a bit brownish (though not as bad in person as the photos show), and some cracking on the grips near the lanyard...
  16. KARMA: Bianchi holster for a Glock - We have a winner

    As the title says; back in the late '90s, I bought a Glock along with everyone else. Unlike some, I quickly fell out of love with mine. I probably only wore this holster twice, and it's been in a box in my attic for about 15 years. I'll pick a number in a week (the evening of 05 July) and...
  17. Somewhat sickening Luger story

    Got a call last night from an old high school buddy who's now a LEO out west. Not an awful guy: Afghanistan vet, currently an NG officer, etc. He tells me of a call he and his partner went on last week, where an old lady had just lost her husband and wanted to get rid of his guns. They pull...
  18. 5-44 K-frame grip screws? Anyone?

    For some reason, I can't find the correct grip screw for my Model 10. Can anyone tell me why they're so hard to source? Silly me, I figured a model manufactured in about 6 million units over a hundred years or so would have ample spare parts, but this stupid 5-44 screw seems to be nonexistent...
  19. First post; glad to find this place

    All, It's nice to find this kind of community in what most people seem to think of as a firearms wasteland. I'm a longtime milsurp enthusiast from my Army days in North Carolina; I've got to say that buying weapons there was a whole lot less complicated. I've got a couple of British .303...
