I've been out of the industry for a few years now but 3 years ago at least I found old .38s were definitely not getting any love - I'd hardly ever even sell the ammo and when I did it was usually to...

I bought my Garand for $400 I think in 2002 and at the time thought that was a crazy price. Now they're going over $2000 up here for originals and ever ones built from parts kits are over $1500....

I actually just had a long discussion on another forum about how milsurp prices have gone nuts - not only has the more desirable stuff (US, UK, German, K31s and non-M91 Finns here) just about doubled...

Good luck finding one for under $700 here if it isn't sporterised here. Sort of makes sense though, Canucks are naturally going to want Enfields more than Yanks!

Believe it or not M39s are $900 rifles here and I've been seeing M27 army rifles for $1200 so if I see a $700 M28 I'm laughing all the way to my line of credit.

I bought a Finnish M28 Civil Guard rifle today. Basically an upgraded Mosin-Nagant M91 built for the Finnish Civil Guard - think sort of equivalent to the US national guard but independent of the...

Look sort of like customized Single Sixes to me. The built up top strap looks like a gunsmith job, maybe for strength, maybe for the adjustable sights. Polished off the factory markings while he was...

I don't use a turret press, mostly because I'm doing fairly low volume reloading. I started with a Lee anniversary starter kit with a Breechlock press, and then upgraded to an RCBS Rock Chucker and...

Truth. The main reason I had one in Afghanistan is that I worked at a desk and it saved me from lugging my C7 around for no reason. I even bought a Fobus holster so I could take it off and toss it on...

Meanwhile we've announced our intention to define the requirements to replace our 1940s Hi Powers by 2020... and to have a new pistol in service by 2026.

Nothing really. Rimmed cartridges went out of fashion about the time double column mags came out so those are just the ones ones that ever got made in large quantity. There were also Siamese Mausers...

Picked up a pretty nice FN-made Browning Trombone in an online auction, after being snowed in and prevented from going to the big local gun show. It's a very early one, made about 1934. I've been...

Belated post, but nice setup! I have my granddad's medals as well but they're still in their issued boxes and the ribbons are a little rough - I actually doubt he ever wore them.

Totally makes sense to me - there's a reason my Artillery Luger and C/96 stay in the safe but my Hi Power comes every time. I actually don't mind the GP100s, they're not nearly as nice as a Smith buy...

Either would make sense, or if you really want an open sight .35 Whelan Remington actually made the 700 BDL in that caliber. That said I don't see any particular reason to go for a .35 Whelan over...

41s are awesome guns. I've played with Margolins, Browning Medalists and all manner of Hi Standard target guns and none of them compare.

I don't follow US prices very close, but up here that's a hell of a price for a Garand. Can't remember the last time I saw one for less than $1400. Makes me chuckle to remember paying $400 for mine...
