If anybody has the once shot Greek brass with the headstamp "HXP 77" or "65" I want it..... I make Arisaka brass from it.

I want to get a Garand as well. One of the neat rifles from WWII.

I have gone over to the dark side and am using 22 cal military look a likes.
Why would someone that sports the SS symbol own a U.S. made rifle. I know of quite a few Jews that would be truly offended, as I am. Lets not forget, the major use of gun control to further their agenda, The murder of over 4 million, the slaughter of unarmed Allied prisoners. Happy 4th dan.

There was a US Marine sniper unit that used the SS symbol until very recently...

I ain't wild about it either... But I understand that not everyone who totes SS runes is a Nazi.

Like the Marine snipers there.

Plus, being a Nazi doesn't make you un-American, it just makes you an idiot.

As I recall, the members of that unit were reprimanded for using that flag. The investigation showed that they believed it stood for "Scout/Sniper," and purportedly did not realize it was a Nazi Staatsicherheit flag.

Exactly, there is no way in heck. At least one person knew what it was.

Totally agree. Have no doubt that when the thunder came down, they claimed ignorance in order to save their hide, especially as this would get into "your career is over" territory.
