1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Bill, you'll find the manufacturer behind and under the rear site. It may also have year of manufacture on the barrel on some rifles.

    Good luck,
    Steve

    Email sent. Don't ask my why I like those little carbines, just something about them, fun to shoot. Maybe it's because my uncle was in the battle for Pork Chop Hill in the Korean war and put an M2 to great use. He earned some decorations and sent a lot of Chinese to their maker with the little carbine on auto and was one of the lucky ones to make it out alive.

    When I had mine I reworked a Weaver scope mount for it and that is all I have left. I hand loaded thousands of rounds with a Lee hand loader. I had 15 and 30 shot magazines. I also shot my first deer with my 30 cal. carbine. Then (about 1965) they were a cheap deer gun. It shot slow and short but I shot it a lot and knew how to shoot it.Ray

    Observed them used by the South Vietnamese army, not worth a crap (that's both, gun and SV army).
