  1. Thanks! I figured it must have been foreign. I passed and found some 1" cotton webbing straps that are like the dispatch case slings but longer and without the shoulder pads. Thanks again for IDing it. I figured someone here would recognize it!
  2. Were these just carried in the pack since there's no belt attachment?
  3. No it's an ePay listing. Genuine-US-Military-issue-Heavy-Duty-Webbing-Strap-2-x40-Multi-Purpose-Strap Here's the description; Genuine US Military issue Heavy Duty Webbing Strap 2"x40" (A-533) New (OLD Stock) Genuine US Army issue strap Olive green canvas Webbing Strong lobster claw clip on the both end Metal buckle to fasten 2" Width and 40" length of webbing Great for camping, Car accessories, Military Webbing Strap Highly durable and hard wearing olive Drab webbing Strap U.S. Army General Purpose Should
  4. Like everyone else said. Handle to the flap. I don't even know if it would fit the other way around. I know M56 carriers are sort of sewn with contours that I think it only goes in the carrier one way. I think WWII have a similar contour. Don't have any e tools currently so going from memory.
  5. Never seen hooks like this on a GP strap. Is this even USGI? Even the WWII GP Straps I have seen have the standard looking hooks so I don't know what to make of this thing. Anyone ever seen the likes of it before?
  6. It's always been my opinion that when some dude has a stoopit price on his items it's because he promised his old lady he would sell some of his army crap so he posts it up to prove "he's selling it" but prices it where it will be his forever! I crack the joke at gun shows to the guys face even! :-D
  7. Does he live by the "Side of a River" in California? That guys been at it a hot minute.
  8. Shot the snot out of her this morning. Literally. What ever freckles she had in the barrel shot right out and now after a good cleaning she is back on the wall with a super shiny barrel! Shot for function and not accuracy so no comments on if she's a tack driver. She chewed through 8-15 rounders and never missed a beat. Not enough recoil to ever widen the wrist crack either. I am super happy with mine and as soon as I find time I will do the data sheet. ETA the import stamp is the "dot matrix" variety like the "C.A.I" imports. See here http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/im
  9. I'm pretty happy with it! Already smoothed the rough spot out and as soon as I find my BLO will give it a good rub and it should be good to go. I think this one will be a shooter since it has freckles. I think I'll try the steam iron out on some of the shallower dings too. Peace yall.
  10. I got a nice one. SAGINAW S'G' with Buffalo Arms 8-43 barrel, S'G' trigger housing, pushbutton safety, IP-W mag release but not sure which revision but no M2 prong so type 1 or 2(?), S'G' hammer, SW-S'G' sear, circled B on top of the chamber, tooling hole left rear of the receiver, B-S'G' flip sight, R.-S.G. handguard, W marked later type oprod IO bolt. I think there was another character on it but I didn't take a picture. Finish is 85% plus on the receiver and 80%ish on the barrel and it's a nice smooth dark charcoal. Bore is a little dark and has a freckle or two thank to the
  11. I was wrong! Someone on CMP forum got theirs and it's a WWII mixmaster but dayum beautiful and the import mark is very nicely done in a dot matrix under the barrel between stock and front sight. He ordered a Rocky and paid the 3 hundo. They sent him a "early features" instead which also cost 3 hundo. He called and got no love but like I said he got an early one. He got a Standard Products with flip sights and early band, an Underwood stock with a beautiful cartouche, Inland handguard and trigger housing and the barrel is Underwood looks like 12-43. It'll take me awhile to ge
  12. What's the difference? I've never used VMP naptha. Used Zippo and Ronsol and tried lawnmower gas back in the day in a pinch now that I think of it! (Really stinky and very dirty black smoke) I personally like the Zippo fuel better than Ronsol.
  13. I've bought several things from them from blemished AK kits to at least 2 M16A1 kits over the years they've been around. They ship FFL items pretty quick. Way less than 2 weeks IIRCC for a blem AK kit with receiver several years ago. (Under promised on the description in that case and over delivered.) The M16A1 kits were under promised and a little over delivered or exactly as promised. Those kits were a crap shoot no matter where you got them. Just like everyone else the kit I bought several years ago was nicer then the more recent (2 years or maybe 3 ago) batch. I was confident
  14. https://www.royaltigerimports.com/product-p/m1car001.htm $899.99 to $1299.99 These do look a bit scruffy but there are early features on some like ORIGINAL flip sights and type 1 and 2 bands, high wood stocks and I cuts! God knows there's enough fake flip up sights in the world now. Some better than others like the barrel bands. These are guaranteed real deal non humped stuff! They are import stamped on the bottom of the barrel. Hopefully lightly done and not like the Blue Sky Arsenal gorilla smash stamps of decades gone by! (Remember those?) I know the price will put some o
  15. When you get that last light out of your Zippo; Pop it open and squirt. Count to 5. Stop squirting. You'll NEVER burn you tender bits and the front of your thigh again! As for fuel I've always heard that ALL field lighters be they Zippo or Ronson or all of those snazzy "trench lighters" could burn the same stuff as the Shermans! Gas! As mentioned white gas was a supplied item but was probably more scarce the closer you got to "the sh*t". I had an old M51(?) stove and the directions said (paraphrased of course) "use white gas but in an emergency use gas".
  16. Roger that. This was all I could find but I remember reading in his biography that he carried a cut down M2. They shape of the pistol grip looks like from an M1A1 sans wire stock.
  17. GREAT news! Glad a good scrubbing did the trick! 13 year old oil turns to gunk.
  18. Someone trying to make more money off some repro 30's. FWIW the current manufactured Korean mags both the 15 and 30 rounders are VERY good magazines. They are a little but heavier than USGI and I have several and have never had an hiccoughs with them. I've had USGI fresh out of the wax paper (and freshly cleaned) with feeding issues from bent lips during storage. Of course I've had many issues with those unmarked repro 30's like everyone else has. In my mind it's not a bad idea to collect the USGI mags and shoot with the new Korean mags.
  19. I'm betting on short stroke. Scott Duff would have known if there was something broken and "Safe Sitting" probably would break things. That gas piston is probably gummed up good. Could be dried grease in the bolt track too. Give the ole girl a good bath and try again. ETA Oh yea. What BRAND of ammo? Aguila is a bit under powered IIRCC. Also I got my old girl out and cycled the bolt and if it is spitting out the old round and picking up a new round then it may not be a short stroke because if you pull the bolt back far enough to pick up that round the sear SHOU
  20. Ooops. I replied to the wrong thread. Merry Christmas and a MAGA New Year to all!
  21. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ee/William_Pitsenbarger.jpg A friend of mine on the ArfCom forums asked the question what body armor he is wearing in the above linked picture. I told him to ask here because if it isn't known here, it isn't knowable. He apparently is having trouble with getting approved so I offered to ask for him.
  22. Am I blind or are you forgetful? Incredible find! Here a link to the aforementioned pencil barrel in 1/9 Really not that hard to swap barrels and you could probably cut your cost in half by selling the Gub'ment Profile barrel. http://shop.ar15sport.ihoststores.com/productinfo_v3.aspx?productid=BARREL-20LWT19
