  1. Got a robo call from ATF warning of potential rioting by feral nogs in my area, to secure all firearms and records and report lost or stolen firearms immediately. R.L.
  2. Yes. They have everyone's number, email, banking info, pizza preferences, favorite beverage....welcome to intrusive government in America today. That is unless you're a looter....nobody seems to know much about them or where they live. R.L.
  3. I found these today while digging through stuff. Enfield rifle? There is a small letter, a capital A in a square block on the flat. Fine thread, not sure what pitch. Thanks, R.L.
  4. With all of this pandemic b.s. and work slow I'm bored. I was waiting to move before unboxing my new Hobart 40i plasma machine, but decided to unbox it and try it today. What a surprise. Unbelievable performance. I'm an old oxy acetylene guy, who cut my teeth on cutting heavy steel plate over 5" thick, burning 12" pins out of headache balls, heavy railroad cutting. Oxy was the way, the only way. Until today. If anyone is looking for a virtually foolproof way to cut metal, ferrous and non ferrous, plasma is the only way to go. I love this machine. I'm working on a coal forge hood and right now and the cuts for this hood look like they were cut with a laser. Can say enough good about the Hobart 40i plasma machine!

  13. Thank you again to Andy and David. It's time to renew my yearly subscription, and I can't think of another $20 I've spent on anything else that has has greater and more rewarding returns than my membership at Sturmgewehr. I've been a regular here for the entire 21 years and I've had some of the best times ever right here. Can't say I don't miss the "wild West" days here cause I do. I had some real fun times with Murray torturing the maggots that used to spam and cause trouble here. I miss ol' Neanderthal and our shenanigans!! I just sold the last piece of my 30 year collection, and although bitter sweet, that piece is back home to it's original owner and it was a good deal for all. Now that the dust has settled from the "other" board, and all of the hoopla and promises made were not kept, I see more and more "refugees" from the old snubguns board here. For those "refugees" that scoffed at my previous post here about this place being the "BEST" C 3 site on the net....whatcha think now...HMM? A person's words and promises are worthless when not kept. Looks like ya'll were sold a bill of goods. Glad you decided to join. Told you so. Sturm #1 C3 board on the net, bar none. Thanks Andy and David, R.L. Stuck in the Blackface KKK Governor, baby killing state of Virginia.
  14. I have three, who knows why. Probably a project that never happened. Anyway they are new, with carry case, optics are clear, accordion eyepieces are perfect. Two have all three filters, one has no filters. Guys I need to get rid of stuff and there's more coming. Gotta lighten the load, can't carry all this junk to Maine. If there is any interest, I'll post em on the accessories board, otherwise I won't waste Andy and Dave's bandwidth. Thanks, R.L.
  15. Mike, Send me your email address, I'll send you pics. They are all NOS in original steel case..Make me a reasonable offer and they're yours. I bought them for a cannon project years ago and never finished the project. I need to get rid of these, we're moving and they need to go. Bob L.
  16. Thank you. Yes absolutely correct about using a new anvil with crisp edges. The edges on this Gladiator are even sharper than the edges on my Kohlswa anvils. Some people don't like anvils that ring, this thing rings like Big Ben. I'm about half deaf anyway so I enjoy the musical ring. Nice to keep cadence too. Jim at Nimba is a good guy, very knowledgeable and will talk hot steel with you all day. FYI, Nimba is the last US manufacturer of anvils. They are made in Port Townsend, Wa. Alec Steel of youtube fame is coming out with a new US made anvil soon. He showcased it on youtube a few weeks ago. Around 150 lbs I think. Looks nice. Stuck for now in the black face, baby killing state of Virginia R.L.
  17. After a year of anxious wait time and $3K my Nimba Gladiator was delivered from Nimba Anvils in Washington state. Absolutely beautiful. 450 lbs of the finest 8690 heat treated steel money can buy. Work top is hardened to 58 C rockwell . It is a 1 piece monolithic cast anvil. With anvils BIGGER is always better. There is not much you can't forge on this monster. I can't wait to use it.If you look closely you'll see my Anyang 88 power hammer on the left behind the jerry can. Now the down side, I have to haul all this crap to Maine. Oh well could be worse. R.L.
  18. Thanks. Most people just don't real excited about a big hunk of metal. I've been a metal head most of my life. If I could have found an anvil that weighed 1000 lb's I would have bought that instead. I love big anvils. The biggest anvil I've ever seen in person was an 850 lb railroad anvil in the blacksmith shop in old downtown.Harpers Ferry WVa. Watch any of the modern heavy forging videos on youtube and you'll get hooked on forging. R.L.
  19. Thanks all for your responses. This cannon is sold. R.L.
  20. Well Gents, I have not heard from the buyer that said "I'll take it" . Too late now, since it's been 4 days now and no contact concerning payment and paperwork was made by the buyer, I'm relisting the cannon. This piece is up for sale again to interested buyers. All I ask any legitimate buyer is, if you say I'll take it, that you follow through with the verbal commitment. I've had a long, positive selling history here on Sturm and have always represented my sale items honestly ,accurately, and priced fairly, treating everyone with respect. I expect the same level of respect from a buyer. Respect and taking your offer seriously begins with contact made with the seller within 24 hr's.to discuss payment and paperwork. This item RELISTED AGAIN, is a Puteaux 25mm anti tank cannon. It is in excellent condition, except the right wheel needs to be trued.The price I'm asking more than compensates for this, small defect, otherwise I'd be asking $15K. . Other than that, the cannon is in excellent condition. It has been stored inside in humidity controlled space, in my home since I've owned it. The bore is perfect, no pits no rust, strong rifling looks new. Original spaghetti strainer flash hider also included. Cannon is C&R on a form 4 in Va. It comes with 4 original loaded rounds and primer assemblies that are processed and ready to load. The original Puteaux data plate is intact, it also has a Finnish data plate from WW2 still intact also. There is no original scope, but I will provide the buyer a nice US artillery scope with the deal. You must have elevation and windage rings installed on the scope body (Ohio Ordnance or any good machine shop can do this) 100% payment in full ,starts the form 4. No trades, no offers. Interested buyers ,send your email address for pics. If you made an offer in the past and didn't follow through, don't bother contacting me again, I won't consider your offer again. Sale price: $10.5K R.L.
  21. WTS: 25mm Puteaux AT cannon

    Taylor P. was first to say I'll take it at 1:33pm est eMgunslinger was second to say I'll take it at 1:36pm est. Thumpy was third The cannon can stay here secure at the house inside until the transfer is finished. It can either be shipped by the transport company of your choice and payment or picked up in person (my suggestion) The last Puteaux I sold was picked up by a guy that came all the way from Washington state!! If Taylor changes his mind, eMGunslinger has first right of refusal should he decide he's still interested in buying. I will mark this sold pending funds. Thank you to everyone. Bob Leyshion, Jr.
  22. It saddens me greatly, I had not planned on ever selling this, but dragging it all the way to Maine is not an option. We don't have room to store it at the new house. The cannon has been stored inside since I've owned it. It's in excellent condition. Original Puteaux data plate is intact along with the Finnish S.A. plate. The bore is 99%, shiny. no pits. Original flash hider included. I have a nice US Artillery scope that I will throw in the deal. Needs mounting collars manufactured.(Ohio Ordnance) The only issue is the right wheel needs to be trued, it has a slight bend in it which does not affect the operation of the piece. I have 4 rounds of original ammo that comes with it and some processed primer assemblies. It is on a form 4 in Va. and it IS C&R which means we can sell licensee to licensee, regardless of the state. I am a C&R license holder. $10.5K no offers, no trades. 100% upfront starts the form 4. R.L.

    Ok guys there has been a large response to the ad. I want to fair to everyone that responded. I need to go back into my email and check time stamps and see who was first to say I'll take it. I'll post who was first, then second and third for a backup in case the original buyer changes their mind. Give me an hour and I'll post it back here. Thanks for everyone's response. R.L.
