Signature


"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit such crimes... such laws make things worse for the assualted and better for the assailants: they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man" Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria NRA Endowment Life Member

    It's probably very possible for a custom builder to build a 7.62x39 M14 or M1 rifle. The M1 might have problems with the clip but that might be solveable. The M14 magazine could probably be...

    The Model 1860 Cavalry Saber stayed in service throughout the Indian Wars - being replaced by the Model 1906 (same, but with an iron guard), the Model 1872 (same shape, much lighter), and later by...

    Fraternal and Society organizations abounded after that war - and were a strong political voice, as well. Most veterans belonged to at least the Grand Army of the Republic or the United...

    Here's an 1860 Light Cavalry saber by Christopher Roby. The condition and the 1865 date makes me think it didn't see any action. https://i.imgur.com/6Sh4Bbp.jpg https://i.imgur.com/N3lnH05.jpg

    No doubt about it that it is a nice find and it would be a keeper to me for sure. I have a WWII German rifle presented to a German general during the war. It is too ugly and obscure to be a fake. ...

    Is that truly considered a Civil War sword? It is dated 1881 and is from more or less a fraternal organization. There were any number of different organizations of this type after the war. Many...

    I love anything civil war as long as it’s from the south. That’s a great piece of history though. Thanks for sharing it.

    I would contact "The Horse Soldier" in Gettysburg and ask if you can send detailed pictures with your questions. They may charge for their service, but they're very good.

    I think Standard makes top notch single action revolvers but this gun reminds me of the weird gun that USFA made that killed the golden goose. Let us hope history isn't repeating itself.
