I am very impressed. Cherry? Are you sure? I'm a woodworker also. Doesn't look like cherry in
the picture. Very, very, nice collection! How long did it take to put all this together? The
M-1 has the m...

You are correct. I stand corrected. I did not know that. After some reading you are right. I
watched "SAVING PRIVATE RYAN" last night and saw the sniper rifle used was an '03-A3. They got
a lot of thi...

Recently bought a Krag-Jorgensen .30-.40 off a guy. Great shape for 115 years old. Most of
these were used in the Spanish American war. Teddy R. And his Rough Riders went up San Juan

Okay, here are some photos of my Krag-Jorgensen. Also one of my M1917 WWII Enfield made by

rounds vs ...

I hate to give up on it. My son wanted something that had a harder hit on feral hogs than my

I'll let you know after I shoot it. I once had a Chinese made SKS that came new with the scope
installed. It was a piece of crap. One large knurled screw held it on. I tried to make it all
