In a theater near you Slasher said: The bad one you know, the one with the dual springs, aluminum trigger guard, lever release at the back of the receiver, and on, etc. I had fired over a rounds of quality and cheap ammo through it before a Korean War vet informed me around I had a piece of crap. He laughed at my dual springs and showed me his real M 1 Carbine and it’s “rods” and other different parts. I have continued to fire the rifle over the years and it is my defense gun for my home amongst others. It has never failed to feed or jammed. The Korean War vet even gave me a pile of cast reloads and it fired everyone without a hitch.

Having a distinctive almond shaped skull with characteristic stalk-like projection resembling a pear and giving these helmets their name cabacette. Many of these were held in English church armouries from the time of the Armada, and examples were taken to the New World by the earliest English settlers, one has been found during excavations at Jamestown Island. This is a pleasing example, the rosettes and plume holder being restorations.
In all a handsome example of munition armour of the late 16th Century. In addition to being a being a famous writer, Scott was also an antiquary who assembled an important collection of arms and armour. He was a contemporary and correspondant of Samuel Rush Meyrick, and indeed commissioned him to procure items for his armoury. The armoury is on public display at Abbotsford and is to be recommended to the student of arms and armour.
The gauntlet dates to the late 16th Century and is of steel decorated with brass-capped rivets. Though handsome, such gauntlets are not rare, however, one with such a provenance to an early and important collection of armour certainly is.
Army Ordnance Serial Number Assignments Understanding Serial Numbers – Understanding Dates of Manufacture Serial number blocks were assigned by the Ordnance Department on an as needed basis, generally in response to the awarding of a contract to a given manufacturer. The serial number was placed on the carbine receiver during the manufacturing process of the receiver, not when the carbine was finally assembled.
The decision for which receivers would be used for the U. Carbine Models M1, M1A1, or M2 were made well after the receiver was completed as all of these models used the same receiver. Given the high volume production, receivers were generally assembled as part of a carbine within a few months after the receiver was serial numbered.

The “Socialist Rifle Association,” whose very existence is utterly ignored by the liberal media (for obvious reasons), is a growing group of American socialists/Communists that is advocating for its members become armed and trained, so that they can violently resist “right-wing aggression.”.
Development history[ edit ] Limitations of weapons in the U. The soldier on the left has a slung M1 Carbine. Army Ordnance received reports that the full-size M1 rifle was too heavy and cumbersome for most support troops staff, mortarmen, radiomen, etc. During prewar and early war field exercises, it was found that the M1 Garand impeded these soldier’s mobility, as a slung rifle would frequently catch on brush, bang the helmet, or tilt over the eyes.
Many soldiers found the rifle slid off the shoulder unless slung diagonally across the back, where it prevented the wearing of standard field packs and haversacks. Additionally, Germany’s use of glider-borne and paratroop forces to launch surprise attacks behind the front lines, generated a request for a new compact infantry weapon to equip support troops. Army decided that a carbine would adequately fulfill all of these requirements, but specified that the new arm should weigh no more than five pounds and have an effective range of yards.
Designing the M1 carbine[ edit ] In , the Chief of Infantry requested that the Ordnance Department develop a “light rifle” or carbine, though the formal requirement for the weapon type was not approved until This led to a competition in by major U. Winchester at first did not submit a carbine design, as it was occupied in developing the. The rifle originated as a design by Jonathan “Ed” Browning, brother of the famous firearm designer John Browning. A couple of months after Ed Browning’s death in May , Winchester hired David Marshall “Carbine” Williams who had begun work on a short-stroke gas piston design while serving a prison sentence at a North Carolina minimum-security work farm.
Winchester, after Williams’ release, had hired Williams on the strength of recommendations of firearms industry leaders, and hoped Williams would be able to complete various designs left unfinished by Ed Browning, including the Winchester. Williams incorporated his short-stroke piston in the existing design.

Third Reich BATTLE flag/ Party flag, near mint. Used for all types of display etc. I think this NSDAP style flag was used in the field rather than just for political purposed.

These were only produced for short time over 3 or 4 years. If you are looking for a text book example of this rare dagger model I am sure you will be happy with this one as it is in very nice condition. The black grip is in perfect condition and it is slightly longer than a standard army grip which is correct for a black grip from this maker and is what you want to see on a original example.
These USGI parts are not compatible: If anyone has more info, corrections, or other history, please send me links or copies. If I’ve incorrectly attributed any of this, let me know and I’ll correct it. Initially the bulk of the components Universal used in their carbines were U. Surplus slides and trigger housings were used as long as possible, but toward the end of the Korean Conflict, when the surplus part market dried up, Universal started manufacturing all of their own parts including barrels, die cast trigger housings, recoil plates, recoil plate screw, and springs.
The quality of Universal M1 copies was usually not to bad, but not up to the standards of the U.
August 17, was a bright warm sunny day. In the Berkshire market town of Hungerford, Sue Godfrey packed a picnic and her two children into her car and headed for nearby Savernake Forest.
White braid band a little grubby Patent leather black peak with brass edge. The pistol has a good working action. It has an overall grey patina. A good solid pistol but there has been some pitting- please see photo. In my opinion this does not detract from a desirable Colt New Line, especially as it has matching serial numbers and is a scarce two digit number. This replaces the bottom front furniture on the AK and also clamps to the bayonet lug.

I really enjoyed it. These production lines were the real wonder weapons. Blastattack It would be economically impossible to make one. As a Machinist myself, that is not a project any sane person would want to take on as a job.
A good basic owner’s guide to the M1 carbine, especially if you are mainly interested in assembly and disassembly, operation and functioning and nomenclature.
Naval Council A fleet is more than just a collection of ships. It requires an organisation and support ashore to keep it afloat and battle worthy. Ships at sea require regular repairs, even if they are not fighting, as wind and wave will take a toll of even the strongest vessel. Even ships that are not active require some maintenance support, as barnacles and weeds must be removed if sailing performance is not be to compromised.
A warship requires a prodigious quantity of stores, food, water and ammunition too: All of these tasks mean that navies must have their own dockyards, repair shops and warehouses available at all times. It is not enough to rely on civilian capacity. A huge fleet demanded shore facilities such as dockyards on an equally vast scale, and in every part of the world. Just supplying the fleet with food, drink and spare parts required tremendous purchasing organisation, but the Navy was also capable of building and repairing vessels.
Military: Top 10 Most Powerful Armies in the World
I’m the shooter guy! Laws of physics and logic need not apply! The earliest first person shooter games were, like most games of the era, heavily gameplay-oriented arcade-style games. That said, it did not take long before games with a realism focus entered the market: Needless to say, the FPS market has seen an overflowing of games all over the scale in the years since. The general trend of examples along the scale should be familiar to FPS gamers:
Bayonet belt frogs – Portugal thru Yugoslavia. Poland: Brownish/Green nylon web bayonet frog to allow the 6H4 (AKM Type II) bayonet to be carried on modern MOLLE load bearing equipment.. The MOLLE load-bearing system is the western standard, variations of which are used by the USA, Canada (Tactical Vest), Britain, and many other NATO countries.
It never was worth while, so Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag, And smile, smile, smile! Home to all the squaddies and squadettes. Their main weapon is the L85A2 assault rifle some military people will look at you funny if you call it the SA80 as the SA80 refers to a family of weapons including the standard issue rifle, carbine, light support weapon and cadet rifle , which is rather short and can’t be fired left-handed unless a face full of hot cartridge casings is your idea of fun.
Despite this, since recent upgrades by HK the rifle has been noted as one of the most accurate and reliable service rifles around. Not named the “Royal Army” because it is descended from the institutions established by the “New Model Army” which fought for Parliament against the King in the seventeenth century civil wars, unlike the navy.
There are “Royal” units in the Army, but they are regiments, divisions, even corps, rather than the Army as a whole, e. Because of this factor, and the historical reality that sea borders with all major rivals in the modern era mean that it’s not exactly the first line of defence, the Army is often portrayed as The Unfavourite in the view of the establishment, together with the fact that having a standing army has historically and even to some degree today made British people nervous the British Constitution of specifically states that no army shall exist except by direct consent of Parliament.
