  1. M2 carbine 30rd. Magazine

    There is an article on IDing carbine magazines on the CMP website J= Jahn also made magazines for the M3- M3A1 grease guns during Vietnam, also stamped with a letter J. Those I have seen were all parkerized. http://thecmp.org/wp-content/uploads/Carbine_30_Round_Magazines_September_2007.pdf
  2. WTB Charles Erb AIMS-74 or other transferable AK-74

    Only the Chinese AKs were made in .223/5.56; the only other semi-auto AKM rifles imported in time for legal registration were Egyptian they were all 7.62x39mm. The time period that the first semi AKs were imported and the cut-off date of 19 May 1986 was very short approx 15 months or less. The mag well on the AK-74 at Morphy's was a perfect fit for AK-74 mags. Mario at Piece of History does detailed-excellent work.

  5. WTB Charles Erb AIMS-74 or other transferable AK-74

    That had to be built on a converted semi Chinese or Egyptian AKM receiver, could be a grandfathered sear gun. Converted to AK-74 Long after 1986. There were NO AK-74 kits, guns OR 5.45x39mm ammo in the country until say 1995 (?) or so There is an AK-74 coming up for auction at Morphy's in MAY. AK-74 5.45x39 full stock clone built on a Polytech AK receiver. Impressive Russian clone built by Piece of History Firearms. All Soviet markings proofs, crows feet and hammer delay "bump" at the bottom of the receiver, laminated Soviet wood.

  7. Reproduction 68 Amnesty Posters

    Recon Ordnance had them.
  8. Reising Question

    When switching from FA to SEMI you must retract the action bar 1/4" to unhook the FA lever from the action bar, if you don't, it bends a component in the trigger group that keeps the FA lever away from the action bar. Easy fix is to just bend it back into place.
  9. WTB H&R Reising m50 / 60 bolt assembly

    Indianapolis Ordnance is making new Reising replacement bolts (stripped) they work great.
  10. Original Cobray .45 suppressor for MAC-10?

    I had one that I sold with a MAC. The can was an early Powder Springs model. I had several offers for the can alone when I had the MAC and suppressor advertised together, from $750 to $900. It went with the gun. The MAC type cans were made by the original MAC company, as well as both RPB companies and SWD. There were a fairly large number made by individuals and C2s from the kits that SWD sold (that led to the ban on owning suppressor parts.) MAC, RPB, and SWD all used the Cobray name. SWD's Cobray logo is easily IDed. It has a registered trademark letter R inside a circle added. I agree that a MAC looks "right" with that old school can on the muzzle! Lots of info in the MAC MAN book!

PM if interested From the book AK-47 The Grim Reaper II During the late 1950s the Soviet designers turned to a new composite plastic material. They manufactured their first generation nonmetallic magazines from a fiber-reinforced AG-4S variations of the 7.62x39mm orange, phenol plastic magazines, including those made by Tula and Izhmash, known to collectors as: long-tops, short-tops, ribbed (hump back), and flat-backs. phenol plastic. The magazines were introduced a few years after the appearance of the stamped receiver AKM rifle, around 1965. The plastic magazines were primarily manufactured by the same factories that produced the steel magazines and have their factory logo and the factory die number molded into the sides of the magazine’s body. The plastic magazines were an orange color that varied slightly from lot to lot and by manufacturer. The latching lugs and feed lips of the magazine were made of steel and molded into the plastic. The spring, follower, floor plates, and floor plate retainers were also made of steel. There have been several magazines of this type observed that have had followers made from aluminum. There are several
