  1. Swedish K front sight retaining-lock spring

    I figured it out...install the spring, slid a small pin punch through the slots in the sights protective ears to push the spring back just far enough to start the threaded front sight in. If you try to put the sight in first, then push the spring in place you will probably break it.
  2. Installing the spring-steel lock on the front sight of a Swedish K M45 I was able to do this once without breaking the spring-steel lock, but can't remember the trick to install it.
  3. If you have Whitman & Sons DIAS; note

    If you have for sale or own an FB Whitman & Son DIAS please PM me.
  4. Transferable H&R M-14 (C&R)

    To be eligible for C&R status a weapon has to be 50 years old. The last M14 was made in 1964. The weapons have to be in their original configuration, no rewelds, remanufactured or tube guns qualify. What will happen when those guns are 50 years old? Good question, I don't know. For a unique, or limited production weapon to be added, you have to send a request to ATF and have a credited museum or such verify that it is rare or unique. Two examples that were classified early were the S&W 76 submachine guns and the West Hurley-made Thompsons.
  5. Why would they modify existing magazines? Several reasons... 1.They didn't have to bother designing a new magazine... not an easy process. The 9mm MAC 10 used modified "Walther" magazines, the .45 caliber MAC 10 used modified M3 Grease Gun magazines. Why modify them? Because non-modified surplus magazines would not fit, so you would have to buy the modified mags from MAC. The Walther 9mm MAC 10 magazines MAY have been made/modified at the Walther factory for MAC, because of the stop tabs location. On Original MPL magazines, the stop tabs are near the top of the magazine, MAC Walther magazines the tabs are much lower, and MOST MPL magazines have the Walther banner trademark on them, MAC mags are simply marked MP 9mm (and some with the Cobray trademark). On the MAC mags there is no evidence that the top located tabs were ever there, The Walther - MAC connection is somewhat of a mystery, there has been no documented evidence found to explain it. Compare images of the MPL mags to the MAC mags offered for sale.
  6. The magazine pictured are indeed the "Walther" mags for 9mm MAC 10, but they won't work in a Walther MPL because the stop tabs are in a different location. As far as Cobray markings some magazines have them, some do not. I have seen 1971-72 era boxes of 4 NIW magazines, some were Cobray marked some were not. From my observations, most were NOT cobra marked.

  11. PDF FORM 4 PROBLEM WITH AUTOFILL

  12. PDF FORM 4 PROBLEM WITH AUTOFILL

    I am having a problem filling out a PDF form 4 download. After the info is typed on the first page (ATF copy), it is supposed to automatically fill out that info on the Registrant and LEO copies, BUT those areas are blank, and it will not let you fill in those blocks manually. I have downloaded the forms several times, the same result. Anyone else having this problem?
