Pics of my toy (56k people, call and get better service)

Well, the wood part of it. I should have taken before and after pics.. oh well!

Steps Taken

1. Spray de-greaser fluid all over it and let it soak in for a few hours (I used the same Purple stuff you can use for your car to de-grease that)

2. After letting it soak, I used Dawn soap to wash it all out. Dawn really gets **** clean when you need it to be, there was no more grease, dirt, or filth on the wood itself after that.

3. After it dried, the wood looked like ****. I then went at each piece with some 220 sandpaper dry.

4. After the dry, I went over it in a wet

5. After sandpapering the hell out of it, I took steel wool (Forgot which grade, but it's pretty soft durable stuff) and went at it with each piece.

6. Finally I took an even softer steel wool and went at it again.

7. THEN after doing all that I was told to put the wood in the dishwasher when it was drying all the plates, or take an steam iron to it. Unfortunately, the stock doesn't fit in the dishwasher so I went the other route. This was to let the wood soak up the steam and remove small dents in the wood.

My final results, you can see a sticker was placed inside the stock where the barrel goes. I figured when I put the grease on it, it wouldn't take off any of the markings. Unfortunately it did.

What it used to have on it was a signature (Probably of the inspector) and a date (1973). So my Uncle and I assume that it was repaired and inspected by some guy from whatever country this language is from.

Anyhow, everything turned out great. There are a lot of slight dings on it, but it gives the gun character. With the serial number on the bolt itself, this gun was made back in 1945, probably mid 1945. I'll have pictures of the gun when I get the metal back from the gun store (24, stay tuned!)

*Notice the number on the sticker matches the numbers stamped onto the buttom of the buttstock





Anybody know what the RA stands for?



I was told the "P" stamp was given when the gun was first inspected







I can't wait to start shooting!

Re: Pics of my toy (56k people, call and get better service)

I realized when I was doing the sanding and all that this was basically the same instructions as to how to clean the headlights on my car lol

So I think I'll try it since it worked out pretty well on wood!

Have you heard about the new release of surplus service grade M1 carbines?

I'm working on getting on the list, time to add another to the collection.

Yeah I heard. I used to be a fan of the carbines until I shot them. They constantly jam! The first time it happened I was over at the LA Gun Club, I was shooting it and about the 4th round it would jam. Second time it happened I was shooting my cousin's gun at the outdoor range near me. Every shot the gun jammed.

I'm sure the new stuff will be in fine working order though.

My brother wants to get either a K98, a 1903, or a Mosen Nagat.

I have a stamped 1941 Inland division carbine. I've had a few jams, but figured out that if I load the next mag hot I don't have the problem.

You could probably modify the spring return to eject the shell cleaner.

Which reminds me, my shotgun jams everytime I shoot the next to last round. It will never load that last one. It looks like the chute between the mag and chamber closes on it.

Re: Pics of my toy (56k people, call and get better service)

Odd, I would definitely replace the spring then.

I think I might go for a 1903 or a Mosen Nagat for my next gun since the 1903 was used by our beautiful snipers, and the mosen nagat was used by Vasilli Zaitsev.

I can see myself owning all the World War 2 rifles and being quite happy I don't really care for the new stuff..............

unless it's a .50 cal lol
