The Curio and Relic 2 Gun Competition!

I thought this was a fun watch.

Not so long ago I ran a similar course we named “World War 2 Two Gun”

First we ran with it with Wermacht Issue: K98 Mauser and a P-38. Second time we ran it with the U.S. Loadout:  M1 Garand and the GI Issue 1911 .45.

As predicted my time was slightly better with the Garand versus the bolt action K98, but not by much. You have to remember that both rifles reload by stripper clips and that was what slowed me down on both rifles.

If you drill enough with the K98, you can become really EFFICIENT on it, and by that I mean finding the right balance between speed (working the bolt) and accuracy (letting the front sight post come to rest on your target with a 6 o’clock hold.)

Oh yeah we didn’t do the Kettle Bell thing…

Know Your Cold War Weapons: Czech VZ-52

While perusing Royal Tiger Imports C&R section the other day to see if on the off-hand chance they had any decent M1 Carbines left (they did not of course) I ran across a VZ-52 Rifle.

 

This is a nice peculiar addition to any Cold War Collection to be sure.

CMP Set to Open Second Round of 1911 Pistol Orders in Early 2021

 

Back in my good ole’ serious gun collecting days, I purchased numerous M1 Garand, M1 Carbines and M1911 Pistols from CMP and never had one issue with the purchase process or the firearm.

The fact that those firearms will one day be passed on to my kids and eventually God willing, my grandkids, fills me with an immense satisfaction that is hard to describe.

You see when you support the CMP you are in fact not only supporting and defending the Second Amendment but also ensuring it’s legacy and the legacy of these amazing firearms lives on by giving these weapons a  “Forever” home!

Do your part and purchase a firearm (or two) from CMP Today! You won’t regret it, I assure you.

Know Your Weapons: Wartime Evolution of the No4 Lee Enfield Rear Sight

Most of the significant wartime simplifications we see on rifles from World War Two are from Germany and Japan, but the rear sight of the No4 Lee Enfield is a good example of a similar action taken by Britain. By 1942, the finely-made milled rear sight assembly of the rifle had become a limiting factor…

One of the first model of C/R Rifles I bought was the Mosin Nagant (Primarily because back then they were cheap!)
