To recap, this rifle was given to me by my father-in-law back in early January. Lee-Enfields were manufactured from to the early s, and total production was nearly 14 million rifles. This one appeals to me because it was made in England during the Battle of Britain, and shows evidence of actual deployment in combat. As it happens, the first high-powered rifle I ever shot as a kid was an old WWI vintage Enfield that belonged to my uncle. Unfortunately, this was a popular practice in the post war years. The guns were plentiful and cheap, and guys who bought them apparently preferred the look of a traditional hunting rifle. After the initial disassembly and inspection, I was happy to find the action and barrel in surprisingly good condition. Areas of rust were minimal and superficial.
It has what seems to be a nice hot tank bluing. The finish on the receiver is still nice and deep as is the the under side of the barrel out of the stock. The top of the barrel is covered with surface rust. It does not have open sites although there are two thin notches across the barrel just back from the muzzle. The barrel is about 22″.

The phrase basket-type hilts refers to a large group of hilts which provide a degree of protection to the hand and wrist. Basket-hilted swords have featured prominently among British military edged weapons over the past five centuries, from the Wars of the Roses in the mid fifteenth century to the period immediately after the second Boer War of the early twentieth century.
In setting out to give a full account of the hilt type, and the many variants within it, the first necessity has been to provide an appropriate terminology to employ in cataloguing and describing individual examples. The book, well illustrated with black and white illustrations, falls into several parts, dealing successively with general aspects of various hilt types and discussion of typological methodology, the three major groups of basket-hilted swords, the diverse group of incomplete basket hilts, ‘mortuary’ hilts, and hilts closely related to ‘mortuary’ hilts.
His large collection of British military swords may be seen at Brown University, donated by the author. The best book on British swords to be published for over a generation.
Luger threads, Imperial or Metric? Just a few Questions: Unless one has a Microscope Thread Angle Optical Gauge, there is NO way of ascertaining the 55 degree angle or 60 degree either on such a small diameter screw.

Bayonet — In this regard, it is an ancillary close-quarter combat or last-resort weapon. Some modern bayonets, such as the one used on the British SA80 assault rifle, knife-shaped bayonets—when not fixed to a gun barrel—have long been utilized by soldiers in the field as general purpose cutting implements. The term bayonette dates back to the end of the 16th century, for example, Cotgraves Dictionarie describes the Bayonet as a kind of small flat pocket dagger, furnished with knives, or a great knife to hang at the girdle.
Likewise, Pierre Borel wrote in that a kind of long-knife called a bayonette was made in Bayonne, the bayonet may have emerged to allow a hunter to fend off wild animals in the event of a missed shot. This idea was particularly persistent in Spain where hunting arms were equipped with bayonets from the 17th century until the advent of the cartridge era. The weapon was introduced into the French army by General Jean Martinet and was common in most European armies by the s, the usefulness of such a dual-purpose arm soon became apparent.
Early muskets fired at a rate, and could be both inaccurate and unreliable, depending on the quality of manufacture. A bayonet on a 5-foot tall musket achieved a similar to the infantry spear. This allowed light infantry to be converted to infantry and hold off cavalry charges. The bayonet had a handle that slid directly into the musket barrel.
Indiana You need to describe the characters in preceeding the “serial number” and give me the first digits of the serial number and I can look it up in my son’s book. The characters or pictographs will tell you what arsenal made it, there is one that is supposed to be what a pile of cannon balls stacked in a pyramid would look like viewed from the top concentric circles kinda looking like a compressed olympic logo another looks like two fish kissing in a circle, and there are a few others.

I found this list put together by another fellow over on the Axis History Forum, and since it is so full of decent data I figured it should be shared here. This is NOT my work, but his, and I was struck by the diversity and lack of any commonality at all in the weapons. Their AFVs are not discussed but they only got a few light tanks and armored cars in Lend-Lease, they may have received a small number of M4 Shermans late in the war, but not many that is for sure.
Anyway here is the man’s list how would you like to be Chiang’s Quartermaster? It is a systematic attempt to bring order out of the chaos of Chinese weapons types, imports and manufacture. Many contributed inadvertently to its creation, and I dipped into several dozen sources out of my own library. I will be posting a proper bibliography at a later time, but I would like to thank all the contributors to Axis History Forum and Overwalwagens, where this doc.
There is still much to be done with this document, especially as I find new weapons to add to it and as I edit it further, and the Siamese section is entirely incomplete and skeletal I have not even started to write the section on her AFVs yet. Generally the weapons are listed by order of caliber and then date of introduction small arms are listed in standard metric caliber notation ie: Any contributions by others on theis forum are appreciated.
Many of the weapons of the Warlord armies were acquired either by pilfering local government arsenals, via the local manufacture of usually unauthorized copies of foreign designs ie. Japanese trading houses also played a major role in the sale of pistols inside China, and this after Japan had played a major role in convincing the major powers to embargo the export of military rifles to China.
Equipment types used in China were extremely heterogeneous, and no real effort at standardization was ever made, except that the German 7. Despite the extremely varied collection of ordnance to be found in China, certain weapons predominated in importance and quantity, notably the various Mauser type pistols and rifles; the Madsen series of light machine guns; the Brno ZB and ZB light machine guns; the Type 24 Maxim heavy machine gun after ; the unauthorized Chinese copies of the Colt-Browning M heavy water-cooled machine gun; and almost every major type of Japanese pistol, rifle and machine gun.
Hey baby, wanna clap erasers together later? The illicit, forbidden, and most often scandalous nature of these relationships can be mined for angst, and generally doesn’t cause real life issues because the actors themselves are generally all above the age of consent thanks to Dawson Casting. Even if it was not illegal, the scandal that would erupt from this socially unacceptable affair would be so devastating it would basically cost a teacher or professor his or her job forever.
There are usually different levels of moral endorsement of the relationship, depending on the genders of the participants. Relationships between male teachers and male students are condemned the most harshly.
Feb 28, · The Type 38 rifle Arisaka (三八式歩兵銃 san-hachi-shiki hoheijū) was a bolt-action rifle that supplemented the Type 99 Japanese standard infantry rifle during the Second World War. The design was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army in (the 38th year of the Meiji period, hence “Type 38”) and served from then until the end of
Yes your points are valid, but I was just being humorous. All in all though if I were to choose a service pistol of the era to take into battle, I would pick… Any other one! Vhyrus Worst pistol ever made? Someone obviously never owned a jimenez or cobra. At least the Nambu actually fires most of the time. Type 94s were never carried charged and locked. Same goes for the M except for the cavalry.
Their machine guns were a bit faulty too. Some models were well-made and completely reliable under the harshest battlefield conditions, while others were mediocre, to say the least. All these sweeping negative opinions about Japanese machine guns, and weapons in general, reflect a combination of limited experience across the full spectrum of available weapons types as well as in many cases a nationalistic and personal bias that has not only manifested itself in actual history, but even in fiction.
Either way, it constitutes a gross disrespect for hard truths and reality. It was one of the machineguns that was fed through a hopper that you dropped stripper clips into, though.
