  2. Hi there, I haven’t posted anything in awhile.. I’m almost done making a new barrel for my JSAR.. the hard part at the chamber-end is done.. I need to install the middle bushing, bayonet lug and front sight.. then cut to length.... One thing crossed my mind.. Is there such a thing as “the correct barrel length” for a JSAR.? Or is there lots of variation..? My original barrel measures 22-5/8” total length incl. the locking bushing.. I would like to know from other JSAR owners before I make the final cut... Thanks, Bill

  4. Many thanks to Ryche for helping me with a replacement clip.Much appreciated!
  5. We got him back up and running Ryche

  7. Apparently somewhere in the US in bonded warehouses.
  8. Thanks Brian. When they were transferred and presumably put into storage, where were they stored? In the US? Thanks
  9. Here is the data on JSAR #6983 Received from Cranston Arms 3/11/42 Stock #2 Bbl #8389E Hammer block #9270 Hammer #0009A Bolt #A0800 Locking Cam #9337 Firing Pin #A8077 Extractor #6285 Magazine #9150 Transferred to NPC 3/14/42 Bear in mind that finding a JSAR with correct numbers, other than the Chilean contract arms, is most unusual.
  10. It is hard to compare as nobody seems to have shot the 38m due to rarity. What I know comes from You tube "forgotten weapons" Poland's WW2 Battle rifle".. It is also stripper clip fed, pull pin take down, and has few parts. Main spring on gas rod, tilting one piece bolt, very simple take down, fixed barrel. adjustable gas plug. Could take regular size bayonet. Look at the video and form your own opinion.
  11. Glad to see you made it to the forum
  12. Joe, I cannot help asking: How would the Polish 38m rifle have fared against the '41 Johnson? ej
  13. I know of five Johnson's for sale on the floor. Don't believe any sold. I sold one bayonet with scabbard. Inspected a nice all original rifle (first series 8000 range) for another vendor who was selling it for a friend. Found fine sand under the butt plate. This is the third one I have found with sand under BP. ; don't know source but may have come from a beach landing somewhere. Seller was going to ask $6300 for it. Don't know if it sold. Lots of people but slow sales overall. Saw a beautiful Polish firearms display including a super rare 8mm semi-auto rifle, one of 155 made before WW2. More information on line and You tube about Polish 38m rifle. A lot cleaner design than our M1. If it had got into volume production earlier, Germans would have had a harder time in Poland.
  14. Welcome Wes! Congrats on your new Johnson! Brian will be along soon and give you all the info on your rifle. Wayne
  15. Hello. I am pretty well versed in US milsurps, but this is my first 41 Johnson. I have a couple of questions. 1. My serial number is 6983 and I would like to know if there is info on it? 2. My stock is cracked and somewhat poorly repaired. Are originals available from time to time? I spoke to the gentleman who used to make good repros but he said he is no longer making them. Thanks and glad to be here.
  16. Fulton Armory is a quality shop. I visited them some years ago. I'm not quite sure what the problem might be. So I have questions: 1) Do you know who manufactured the barrel? 2) Did the barrel include a gas port (very small hole) drilled into the barrel halfway down or so? 3) Was a gas piston installed over the gas port, so that the gas from the explosion would be "leaked" into the little hole and move the piston which would in turn hit and move the operating slide backward, hitting the bolt so that the bolt would move to the rear, the extractor on the bolt would grab the empty case, and eventually (with the bolt ejector rod) eject the spent empty cartridge? 4) If Fulton is making M1 Carbines and drilling gas ports for .30 M1 Carbine Ammo, the standard port size would probably still work for the 5.7 round? 5) Who is "PCI" as a manufacturer? 6) Did Fulton explain why they would not time the action? What was their reason? If you are in touch with Fulton on a friendly basis, tell them I'm the one asking the questions. Ed J
  17. Thank you. I did spot one "game" but the collection on disassembly didn't include the '41 JSAR. So I'll wait.
  18. I've got a repro bayonet. PM sent.
  19. so far i have found: if you go on youtube and look up woG wiki you can get a number of the videos. My wife is looking into the game part. we should have more info after the weekend. The only problem i see so far, is in alot of cases they disassemble some things that shouldn't be done. Some times they show rivets as pins etc. Will let you all know when i have more info. Ryche
  20. Much appreciated. If there is a specific name for the game, I can probably google it.
  21. Greetings fellow 5.7 MMJ enthusiasts, I have a put together M1 carbine : got the barrel from Ebay ,and sent it (plus new USGI bolt, trigger group, etc) off to Fulton Armory for putting it on one of their new receivers and for putting it together. They did this but said they would not "time" the action. When I got the rifle it would feed & fire a single round OK, but I would have to manually work the slide to get it to load the next round. Some of the time it did load semi-automatically . I was using the PCI 5.7 Johnson ammo. Any suggestions/ideas? thanks
  22. This is from a game, but i don't know the name of it. There are many weapon systems in the game, i have used several of them as a basic tutorial on some fire arms i'm less familiar with. It came on real handy when replacing a safety sear on my STG-44.If you look at the thumbnails on the right of the screen you should see some of the others that can be viewed. Ryche I will attempt to find out where it's available. I need my son's or wife's help to do so . Ryche
  23. How do I locate and/or possibly purchase this "game?" I assume it has to be on a disk of some kind. I would rather do that as opposed to having someone try to bootleg something off the air. Life is too short as it is. ej

  25. Very well done. A cross between animation and photography. I wish everything came apart that easy. Some of the riveted pins should not be removed as shown. I don't remember seeing the buffer disassembled (which sometimes needs cleaning). The barrel parts are a press fit onto tube, not easy to replace. Also the butt stock seems to be non original (only one hole). It would be nice if part numbers could be added. This video shows me how far behind computer skills I am.
  26. Very interesting. It may be fairly new (09/02/2018), however, the second link, it appears this is part of a paid for "game"?? Seems rather strange, but nowadays, maybe not?? Anyway, it would be interesting to hear from someone like Joe Scott, if he gets a chance to view the video, and get his comments.
  27. No, I had not seen this. Thank you. I'm curious to know who actually did it. ej
  28. You all may have seen this. I think it is well done. Your thoughts? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bIorkdUgL8
