These images come from a gentleman who teaches EOD to police and fire departments, and part of that training is making an X-Ray image, in part to see if the 'thing' is live and to make a positive ID, or if it is a fake or de-milled.

My eyes ain't great these days and they seem to be taking my memory with them, and the image is dark, so... they look like MG43, converted to 7.62 NATO, so what, why, where? Just a 'fun gun shpt'??
I cannot find an anchor, so I don't think it is a navy version. However. Just ahead of the SK stamp there appears to be the remains of some other markings (circled in white). There isn't enough left to read it. Maybe it's just some random marks, but it doesn't look random. What do you guys think? Has anyone seen anything similar?

Talk about a personalized firearm!!!
It's Firearm Friday!
Today we're highlighting another Civil War personalized firearm in our collection, a British Enfield Model 1853.
Carved in the stock is "J.S. McConnell. Co. A. 15th Ky. Inf.
Perryville, Stone River, Chicamauga and Shermans Campaign To Atlanta." Who is J.S. McConnell?
J.S. McConnell is James Samuel McConnell from Shelby County County, Kentucky. He enlisted in the Union Army at the age of 18 in 1862, joining the 15th Kentucky Infantry, Co A. Enlistment records describe him as having "gray eyes, dark hair, and a light complexion."
The good news is that Sgt. McConnell survived! He received a citation upon mustering out that read, " His character and deportment as a soldier are of the first order, while his gallantry and bravery on the field are beyond question. He proved himself a soldier in every respect."
He returned to Shelby County, Kentucky after the war, married and had 9 children. He passed away on July 3, 1915 of tuberculosis.
What if these historic fi****ms could tell us about the battles and these common soldiers that carried them? By carving his name in the stock, as well as his regiment, Sgt. McConnell came to life, instead of being lost to history.

Here we have a Walther PP Super chambered in 9x18 Ultra.
What can anyone tell us about the 9x18 cartridge?
One of the oldest semiauto pistols.
GUN OF THE DAY - Bordchardt Pistol. In 1893, our GOTD became the first of the commercially mass-produced semi-automatic pistols. Both Hugo Borchardt and his assistant Georg Luger claimed credit for the design, but only about 3,500 pistols were created by Ludwig Loewe of Berlin and by DWM. The 7.63mm bottle-necked Borchardt cartridge was considered too long by DWM when time came to manufacture the Luger pistol, but Borchardt refused to alter any aspect of his design and DWM had to call in Georg Luger complete this project.

Just a happy March 8th 2021
Today, March 8th is the birthday of famed revolver shooter, big game hunter, and gun writer Elmer Keith,
If you've ever held a revolver, you should know who this man is. He co-designed the S&W ..357 and 44 Magnum and probably contributed more to the shooting sports than any man since.
He authored the book Sixguns, which is still considered a standard reference. A Proto-Redoubter, Keith spent the second half of his life on a ranch near Salmon, Idaho. (Keith was born in 1899 and died February 12, 1984.)
Happy Valentine's Day from St. John Moses Browning
Firearm Ideas That Failed
Firearm ideas that failed. Anyone collect any of these or have they seen one?
From our friends at the American Rifleman:
Firearm Ideas That Failed For every firearm design that flourished and went on to fame and fortune, several others arrived with great fanfare only to fizzle out at a very young age. Here are a few examples of underachievers.
The .357 Magnum: Most Versatile Handgun Round Ever?
Merry Christmas from the VGCA. As we celebrate a smaller holiday footprint this season, here is something to ponder from our friends at the American Rifleman:
.357 Magnum. The most versatile round ever?

The .357 Magnum: Most Versatile Handgun Round Ever? Eighty-five years have passed since the introduction of the .357 Magnum. Wiley Clapp contends that it's absolutely the most versatile handgun round ever made.
Teddy Roosevelt's Suppressed 1894 Wi******er :: Guns.com
Now for something different.
We all know someone that's had a Wi******er 94 .30-30 WCF rifle. We've either had one, held one, or seen one.
Well... Have you ever seen one equipped with a Maxim Silencer?
Teddy Roosevelt did!
Teddy Roosevelt's Suppressed 1894 Wi******er :: Guns.com Adcor's graduation to phase two of the competition surprised many. But they have spent as much time lobbying as they have improving on the AR-15 design.
Request of Comments on the Arm Brace fiasco are open. If one is unfamiliar with the issue: The ATF again (believe we are on the 4th or 5th ruling change) wants to flip-flop on their Arm Brace Ruling turning a firearm with an arm brace into an NFA item.
If banned, simple ownership of a firearm with an arm brace will be a felonious act, unless registered under the National Fi****ms Act
If you own an arm brace or not, take a moment to at least submit an anonymous comment with: I do not support a ban of Arm Braces.
