  1. Past hour
  2. Unless you've had the pleasure of examining a "Miltech" restored rifle up close, you just can't appreciate the attention to detail and quality built into each rifle. Well worth the money invested.
  3. Last week
  4. I have one for sale complete with pine crate, repro manual any bayonet $5800
  5. Possible interest. Will advise. ej
  6. A major auction house sold one several years ago for around $4800.00
  7. Recently restored stock and forearm for sale. Wood now has a coat of "Gunstock Wax" on it and appears a bit glossy in the photos. A light buffing with #4/0 steel wool can knock the sheen off if you want. Just a few photos here: (more photos available) Price: $700.00 includes shipping. Only metal is the rear sling swivel. Very interesting grain pattern.

  16. I'm going to assemble my own "new" barrel. I need a "barrel locking bushing" as shown here on Numrich Gun Parts. Does anyone have one or more for sale?
  17. Item no longer available. I ended up with a spare Johnson M41 stock forend I don't need. $50 shipped CONUS. They run $65 + shipping on numrich. Used, normal wear. No cracks. mit31@hotmail.com -Tim
  18. I have a Johnson bayonet for sale and I emailed "Bruce." Bruce lives in Canada and I have no idea of any customs or import/export laws which might apply. Can anyone say for sure if it's OK to ship a bayonet to Canada? I posed this question to Bruce and received no reply. Caution.

  20. Hey Walt, I'm looking for some barrels and some barrel locking lug bushings. Do you have any? Thanks, MichaelĀ  Roper

  21. Hello Brian,

    What is the best barrel to use as a replacement for a JSAR barrel? Maybe a 1903 Springfield? What did Winfield use?

    Is there any source for locking lug collars?

    I've been trying to contact Joe Scott and having no luck. I would like to begin making new barrels and provide new wood stocks for collectors. I think Joe was buying "reproduced stocks" from someone and finishing them himself to perfection. I need those contacts if possible. Someone is going to have to pick up where Joe has left off. I can do it.

    Thanks, Michael Roper

  22. This may be redundant but I'm not sure if my other messages went through.

    I'd like to see the jig you are speaking of.

    Also I'd like a price on the "donor" upper for a 1941 JLMG build and any other parts I may need which you could furnish.

    Thanks, Mike

  23. Mr. Alpert and Mr. Scott, Thank you for taking the time to respond to this matter and set the course on what it will take to bring this rifle back. I deeply appreciate the knowledge you have shared. I have to digest all of this and make a plan. I will keep the board apprised. Best, Jason

  26. To correct excess head space, the barrel must be machined. removed the rear collar, sight and lug. Machine the shoulder and rear of barrel back exactly .060" (one turn of collar). This puts the front sight back on top. You must also recut the extractor slot .060" deeper. Then you must make a spacer .060" thick and install it behind the center guide. Ream new pin location. Install rear collar, You can then ream chamber to correct depth head space. The entrance taper is 82deg, break the edge of chamber slightly. On occasion, I found it necessary to move collars 1/8" (.125"). Do not cut the front of rear collar, it doesn't work. Before starting, cut some round shims the diameter of shell base. Try .002, 005,.010" with the go gage and find out how excessive is the head space. Ream slow with lots of lube and test often. I am not doing any work or accepting orders due to blindness.
  27. The bbl has to be set back and rechambered, This also calls for repositioning the front bbl guide (a spacer is usually needed) and re installing the front sight and bayonet lug. Occasionally one sees original JSAR of JLMG bbls which apparently failed headspace and required this modification at the factory. You can tell if they have a spacer behind the guide collar and, if you remove the front sight and bayonet lug, there are additional taper pin groves from the original mounting.
  28. I received the head space gauges today. Go, No Go, and Field. Headspace test were conducted and it failed; The bolt will lock closed on all gauges. I believe I identified the problem of the separated case heads and jamming; excessive headspace. How do I deal with this? The barrel has great rifling. Thanks
