Was it possibly an SVT-40 or the automatic AVT-40?

Chinese SKS (Military) / Re: Chinese possible bring back
« Last post by Bacarnal on February 17, 2020, 11:12:18 PM »
I've noticed the dark and light colors on several worn covers I've seen now, including this one.  It looks like the front and back are annealed (hence the darker color) like they did with the back of the M1 Garand receivers at one point.  Possibly the tempering process made the covers hard, but they wanted either end to be more ductile, so they dunked the ends in lead to draw the temper back.  Interesting.  Nice weapon with good character.  Cheers, Bruce.

The Trinity Rifles / Re: NOT a rifle, but East German-related

Thanks, guys! I've had to look long for these, and I'm blessed to have them. I guess I've browsed hundreds of "East German SKS Ammo Pouch" listings (East German/NVA grenade pouches, I think) with no luck, but eventually, these turned up. Now for a proper sling...

Doesn't matter...I thought that it was from W.C. Fields anyway, until I Googled it and most of the returns attributed it to P.T. Barnum.

Hell, John F. Kennedy could have said it, it still rings true.

In some pictures the metal is white, in others they're nicely blued. Are you stripping all that loveliness down to bare metal?

I think that stock is awesome! Great grain and nicely 'used'!
thanks man. Yeah it just the lighting the blueing is nice under the stock line and under the hand guard. The rest is definitely weathered but its there. I would never strip anything cleaned and oiled her up a bit

Good Lord fellas.
I'm still wondering how you're posting in Chinese, Pinyin or otherwise, and now you're speculating about Chinese geography.

I love this place.

You don't get this form of education anywhere else. Seems like other SKS-centric forums are stuck using conventional (even if proven wrong) "information.

All the rest / Russian BAR ???
« Last post by 1mlt on February 17, 2020, 05:41:49 PM »
I watched a movie about the Russians holding off the Germans during WWII outside of Moscow. It was a good movie, the Russians won that battle. Supposedly, a true story. Anyway, there was a rifle in the movie that resembled the US BAR. It wasn't, but operated the same. Did the Russians have a BAR type rifle? What was it?
