Re: Problem using Lafette ...HELP!

I am amazed the lafette trolley even moves and all. The lafette should be totally disassembled, cleaned of all gelled cosmoline and residue, properly oiled, and reassembled. You should be able to move the trolley smoothly with only the springs offering resistance. A lafette packed with cosmoline is ...

Re: How to reach Bergflak??

I just saw Bergflak in person at the Militaria Show of Shows in Louisville Kentucky last weekend. I bought a spare MP-40 firing pin and barrel nut crush washer from him. Perhaps he is still travelling. I have no idea how to contact him outside of using his contact info on his website. He did mention...

Re: New Range Toy!

Took this shotgun out for a spin at our annual Red Wing Machinegun Shoot this June. Flowless performance. Recoil was lighter than expected, lighter than Dave's Saiga 12. Blasting things with slugs at 100 yards almost made me forget this was a smoothbore shotgun and not a rifle.

Re: What happened to DARIVS ARCHITECTVS ?

The ship was based on a kit, but some many changes were made, it only partially resembles the kit. The ship had added details including internal lighting, changes to the types of wood used (more walnut), full rigging with sails made from scratch. The ship build took 2 years and 8 months and costs we...

What happened to DARIVS ARCHITECTVS ?

I'm still around, guys! This is still a forum I cruise for news, just not as often since I sold my MG-42. Still have other nice guns though. Things are stressed at work because of personnel cutbacks, and some may be leaving because of the resulting heavy workload. Since shooting is expensive these d...

New Range Toy!

I've never owned a shotgun before, but ran across a NutNFancy review on YouTube of the Rock Island Armory VR60 shotgun imported from Turkey. It's been around a while, but I've never heard of it, being outside my area of interest in the past. But since it was reliable, and quite inexpensive, it looke...

Re: FG42 1st Model for-sale on GunBroker......?

I've held two of these in my hands, and wished I owned one. However the price far outweighs the desire to own one.
