  1. The entry form is supposed to be on the web site, but I'll be darned if I can find it.
  2. Warfield Air National Guard Base, Maryland, 104th Fighter Squadron A-10C Thunderbolt II attack planes . November 3, 2021. The lead plane sporting colors of the 104 Observation Squadron formed in 1921.
  3. If you didn't have all the other symptoms, I would have guessed a spider bite. But, all the other symptoms together suggest Covid infection. In any event, you'll know in a day or so. Have you been vaccinated? If so, then, hopefully, the symptoms will be mild. Take care.
  4. The one against the wall looks like a Winchester, maybe, or a Marlin lever gun. Too many double barrel shotguns from that era to easily identify it.
  5. This is from an email I received this morning: COLT’S MANUFACTURING COMPANY LLC (“COLT”) has recently discovered a potential safety issue with certain Modern Sporting Rifles (“MSRs”). Colt is voluntarily initiating a recall to protect the safety of its customers because, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these MSRs may discharge a second round when the trigger is released when there is a live round in the chamber. Colt is committed to the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction. In keeping with that commitment, during routine quality testing, Colt discovered that hammers that do not meet Colt’s specifications were installed in certain MSRs that were manufactured beginning on March 5, 2021. The issue will be corrected by replacing the hammers in affected MSRs. The recall only covers a portion of MSRs manufactured beginning on March 5, 2021, and includes the following models: AR15A4, CR6700A4, CR6920, CR6920-EPR, CR6920MPS-B, CR6921, CR6921-EPR, CR6933, CR6933-EPR, CR6960, LE6920-EPR, LE6920MPS-B, LE6920-OEM1, LE6920-OEM2, LE6920-R, LE6933-EPR, SP633784, LE6920SOCOM. The following chart lists all the serial numbers for those models that may potentially be subject to the recall: Model Marking Serial Numbers AR-15 A4 CAR022851 – CAR023250 CARBINE CR036354 – CR099599 CARBINE CR713001 – CR722100 M4 CARBINE CR716801 – CR721500 M4A1 CARBINE CR021580 – CR022024 To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, Colt advises anyone who has purchased a Colt MSR since March 5, 2021 to stop using it immediately and visit ColtRepairMSR.com or call Customer Service at 1-800-971-3216 to see if your specific MSR is affected. Please note: Not all MSRs within the serial number range in the above chart are subject to this recall and this website offers easy, step-by-step instructions to determine if a particular MSR is affected. Customer service agents will assist anyone who needs additional help. Our expert craftsmen are ready to upgrade all affected MSRs at our West Hartford, CT headquarters.
  6. It depends on what you think you will need. USFA guns were made to the same specs as Ubertis. My USFA pistols started out as 7 1/12 in. 45 Colts. They are now 44-40 with 5 1/2 in. bbls. The parts came from VTI and are blued instead of in the white like the original configuration. The original grips were changed to 1860 Army configuration. Those are obvious differences, although they are cosmetic and don't affect the function of the pistols. I can return them to their original condition, if I choose. As far as internal parts go, there shouldn't be any real difficulty getting Uberti replacement parts. Out of curiosity, which USFA model are you looking at?
  7. Could be, but a call to Taylors or VTI could get an answer.
  8. Glad there was no damage At first glance it looks like the 6th round may have had the bullet impacting on the primer of the 7th round causing the "pop". Perhaps a high primer on the 7th round? Just a WAG.
  9. If the photo is accurate, it looks like a "3 click" action. Better to check with the importer, Uberti USA.
  10. Lots of farms out there in those days. Even though it's in the Princeton area it was very rural 90+ years ago. Anything is possible in NJ.
  11. $90 AUD is still cheaper than here. $100 AUD here on average and higher if you add in shipping and Hazmat charge. More like $140+ AUD.
  12. Only part one. The second part will be out in 2023. The problem with the original film was too much crammed into too short a running time.
  13. It seems as if the availability comes in waves. A month or two ago, the larger retailers had days when primers, for example, were available online. Even though they didn't last long unsold they were there. The availability of powder comes and goes, although most of the powder available seems to be for rifle cartridges. Prices don't appear to be headed down although loaded ammo is available for sale in some places at only $25 a box of 50 for 9 mm and $1.00 a round for 5.56 ammo. So, nowhere near the "fantasy" levels Larsen brought up.
  14. Just what I needed, another bit of information to stick in my crowded mind. I wonder what tidbit got pushed out to make room?
  15. You mentioned the lady bought a Stoeger from a friend. Do you know who the friend is? They might be able to help.
  16. Air Defense device and Field Artillery device are different. The former has the missile on it.
  17. According to one of Wayne's biographers any appearance by Boone in one of JW's films was agreed to over a handshake; no contracts. Boone did The Alamo for the coat that his character wore as his compensation.
  18. Fire and Ice is the weekend before EOT, as you know. It depends on when you get there. If you have time before F&I go down to Tombstone. Always worth a visit, even for a few hours.
  19. If you haven't looked, Colt lists the serial number as a Single Action Army built in 1893. There may be more information, but that would require a Colt letter. Grips were definitely replaced. Pricing can be difficult without an examination of the pistol. The Colt Forum has a lot of information on the 1st Generation SAA and the members there can give you some idea of pricing, but keep in mind that many members are collectors and or sellers. It looks to be in pretty good shape for a 120 + year old gun.
  20. Some models of Winchesters have a round, raised, checkered embedded on the dust cover, which helps in pushing the cover forward; therefore a "thumbprint". Not a common part.
