  3. Yesterday
  4. Wow very nice my original bayonet is in fair condition the scabbard is in bad condition Thank You for posting the pictures
  5. greerhw: your unissued scabbard looks very much like mine...it never appeared to be an easily manufactured piece...with the tight roll of the leather and the fine stitching...the Dutch examples demonstrate that they had a totally different tanning process....I find it interesting that the scabbard maker did not find it necessary to stamp his "mfg logo" and date of mfg on the leather like many of the other companies
  6. Last week
  7. There is a guy in Ohio goes by GUNHEEP on gunbroker that is selling a bunch of stuff including a johnson with bayonet and scabbard amongst other things. Just a heads up to my JSAR family here. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/827694216 Search GUNHEEP on gunbroker see what he has also call him up and he will tell you what he has it's like a 70 gun estate sale from a Korean war vet Have a good night
  8. The pictures are what I saw on the site it was auctioned at https://www.icollector.com/EXTREMELY-EARLY-JOHNSON-MODEL-1941-SEMI-AUTO-RIFLE-THAT-WAS-ISSUED-TO-MEDAL-OF-HONOR-RECIPIENT-CAPT_i17332701 The article in the GCA is more about Major Robert Dunlap than the rifle.
  9. Can you get me a copy of the article and photos? I will be happy to pay for any copying & mail expenses. We do have a photo and brief description on pp 150 & 151 in the 2002 Johnson Book.
  10. I saw pics of the rifle, the finish on the barrel didn't look very worn for a battel rifle??
  11. The Garand Collectors Journal has a article about rifle A0009 that was carried into battle at Iwo Jima by Major Robert Dunlap. Article states that he was awarded the nations highest award for valor in combat with that rifle. Rifle was given to him after the war ended and kept on his wall until his death in 2000. It was put up for auction and is now owned by Robert and Brad Simpson of Collectors Firearms
  12. Sure that would be great I'll pm you my address. Thanks
  13. Hi there, the taper pins for the bayonet lug are # 2/0 and 5/8ā€ long.. the ones I used were slightly longer at 3/4ā€ but I took that 1/8 off then installed it. Get yourself a properly sized reamer (#2/0) for the job. Now that Iā€™m thinking of it... I have a box full of #2/0 x 3/4ā€ pins.. if you want I can send you some.. Bill (Rifleman 1)
  14. 2/0 Morse taper x 5/8" long. 1" pins are readily available and can be cut to length. Reamers are available at machinist supply companies.
  15. What's the type and size taper pins used for the front sight and bayo lug? It's probably in this forum somewhere but I've missed it. Maybe someone can link the original post if it was sometime ago. Thanks
  16. Sent you a PM Thanks David
  17. Yes you both are correct and I apologize that I mislabeled it as a Standard Sporter. I had posted the pictures here back in 2008 when I purchased the rifle and after discussion with Mr. Scott I decided to leave it as a Winfield and not return it to mil-spec. Winfields are part of the history of these fine rifles and it was just too pretty to alter IMHO.
  18. I agree on the custom sporter. Dad actually had one in his collection back in the '50's from Winfield, which I believe he gave to a close friend.
  19. Would anyone happen to have an extra bayonet lug they could part with. I'll pay. Last part needed to return this Johnson to milspec. I've checked the usual online places they are out. Mr Scott is providing me with a buttplate (thanks sir ) but he is out of bayonet lugs. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
  20. Earlier
  21. Admin can you delete this duplicate post thanks
  22. it's fun so far I've got the entire rifle broke down into its individual parts. I found that it was missing its crosspin both front and back. So I ordered some of those. Really the only thing i need left is the buttplate and bayonet lug. Thanks
  23. Welcome, and good luck with your restoration.
  24. I'm not sure why this posted twice admins you can delete this post. Sorry and thanks
  25. Thank you to whomever created an account for me that was much appreciated. Mr Pullen thanks for the help and also to Brian for the help over the past week with johnson parts. If anyone has an extra buttplate repro or original and an extra bayonet lug that would be great. I happened upon a johnson a few weeks ago that someone was selling off there 190 gun collection in Florida and I picked up his JSAR from him. The front sight ears have been wacked off and it was lightly sporterized. I'm now in the process of conversion back to original military config. Have a good day

  27. In looking at deluxe stock, bluing and bbl with ramp front sight, I believe you have a Custom Sporter. Standard Sporters were not blued, had a plain stock without cheek piece and a bbl (usually made from a Garand bbl) with original front sight but no bayonet lug.
  28. This my standard sporter:
  29. Someone above mentioned a Johnson Muzzle Break. I am assuming this was going to be used on something other than a '41 JSAR. Installation on a '41 would affect the recoil operation.
