    The simplest test that will tell whether a gun is chambered for .32 Colt or .32 S&W is to look inside the chambers. If it’s bored straight through without any shoulder it is .32 Colt. I collect...

    Fitting a .380 barrel to a 1903

    Iíve been thinking about trying this. I donít know if a .380 mag will fit into a 1903 made in 1940. I cannot get .380 rounds to fit into a .32 mag and that mag is tight in the well. So, is there a...

    These modifications, slide spring and screwed safety, have to be the dumbest things done to the Hammerless ever. The Fairbarne fighting knife is another piece of crap. No quick ergonomic way to...
