    MP.40 period pics

    Whitey Bulger was another cat who seemed to dig the MP40 - They were likely just the result of a random robbery of legal machine-guns from a collector, but still sort of interesting.

    K43 acquisition - any info appreciated.

    I have been offered an Ohio Ordnance BAR for sale that fits my current tastes better than this. Take a look at post #18 and let me know what this thing should/might sell for, not greedy, but not giving it away. I've been out of the g/k43 buying and selling game for almost a decade, this was an...

    My semi-auto MP44

    I believe he is in Germany so the mechanical steps are simpler than the US, but the legal steps are a little more complicated. Nice 1944 dated MP44 - looks in terrific condition.

    What’s Going on with this MP40 Tube Piece?

    A lot of familiar names in the bidding history. A few collectors certainly felt it was worth the price of admission.

    K43 acquisition - any info appreciated.

    Popped the hand guard off, there is no marking inside, no stamped serial. The wood is a different type to the rest of the stock. It's aged and worn with age - but this means little. What should I be looking for to confirm originality? I'll post pics to this post tomorrow. I've acquired an...

    Durofol handguard missing ear repair

    I have one missing one ear, so I bought a repro hand guard from Poland via Ebay, that arrived this morning. (It's quite good, looks like it was cast from the mold made from an original hand guard - not an original mold, that is.) I am sending mine out to be fixed - presuming the ear from the...

    Handguard is definitely a little-shade darker - yes, Sir. Rifle is at my work-place in Cali, if you're local you're welcome to take apart and inspect, it will probably emigrate to my living-abode in AZ later in the year.

    You and half a dozen others in my private message's - lol. (Thank you guys for the interest, I am just glad it's not a bubba special.) Yes, stock wood could be sun-bleached, tough for me to tell, you guys would be better educated in such things. Thanks for the info.

    K43 acquisition - any info appreciated.

    Thank you T2T, Good to know on the Durofol guard - this wood one seems aged in continuity with the rest of the stock, but who knows? The stock has a small mark on the reverse that could once have been a proof, and it has a dimple on the grip area, which could also have been a stamp. Not...

    Interesting: so the serial 8192 L is represented with a capital letter on the stock.
