Re: Sportsman Guide at it again

Well, boys...

I bought one, got club price though :) I figure to use it on my Faux Kubel, built from a '73 "Thing". It's a nice piece of kit, I think it's post war, account I don't see any marks on it, but I still need to strip it.

Re: Panzerschreck idea?

I just got one of the Spanish ones in a trade. Since I don't do "real" re-inacting like DA, and my Kubel is really a "chopped and channeled" '73 Thing, with a shield it would look close enough for me :D You could mount the shield on the flange at the rear of the front section, an...

Re: Double Drum ?'s

Do you suppose the plates with the rolled up ears are to keep the carrier centered on the bracket that Chuckm is looking for a picture of?

Re: Taking out the old Barrel Bushing....a short how to....

Hi folks: I can't find the old post I had this in, but here's a three-stage photo of how I did mine. I used my little Harbor Freight bandsaw. I lined the shroud up so that it was square to the blade, and just made a cut where the curve of the front of the shroud met the bushing. Then, I knocked the ...

Re: Which GO/NOGO should I GO with??

Mike, The main use for the GO/NOGO is for a 'new' M53...so I am guessing the gauges would be fine for that. I am also planning on getting an 8mm mauser bolt action. A C&R one...so over x amount of years old. You think it would be unreliable for the older rifle? No, the gauges should be fine. Th...

Re: Which GO/NOGO should I GO with??

High Noon :D Most places call the German service round the 8mm Mauser. So, you are looking for gauges, etc. for that, or 8x57....another way they are sometimes listed. You will want the Go and the No-Go gauges. The Field gauge is more of an "it's wore out" gauge. Your bolt should close on ...

Re: Excellent looking movie set in WW2

Judging by the previews, and what I've heard, it looks like a good "reinactor" flick. My only problem with it is Cruise.....I don't like him to start with, and....being the "lead"....he makes Von Stauffenburg look like the leader of the plot, instead of (mostly) just the bomb car...
