  1. M1941 Johnson Rifle serial number 1534 details request.

     

    Hello Ed,

     

    If possible would you advise if there is information available on this rifle and if it can be shared via email rather than posted on the forum?

     

    Thanks for your time and assistance.

  2. I agree with Brian above on all comments. Also, sad to say, I am not a big "fan" of RIA but that's life. ej
  3. serial number?
  4. From a technical standpoint, any type of muzzle brake device, including the one Dad sold after WWII (refer to the Johnson book) for reducing recoil on hi-power bolt-action rifles, might possibly affect the cycling operation of a Johnson semi-auto rifle, which is recoil operated (Same might apply to the Johnson LMG). So Brian (above) makes a good suggestion and, yes, most folks wouldn't notice the difference....including me....unless I was looking for it specifically.
  5. High near 0. You have strange weather in VT.
  6. There WAS a lot of Johnson in the AR.....a large book came out recently titled "The Armalite AR-10" by Collector Grade Publications of Canada which includes considerable detail on Dad's involvement, along with some early background comments by myself. As everyone should know by now, the AR-10 was the "grandfather" of the later AR-15 / M - 16 series.
  7. Hope he doesn't want to take over from Joe Scott. ej
  8. As an addendum, one of my E-mail addresses has been changed. Anyone trying to reach me regarding any spitfire 5/7 info or johnson rifle/lmg info should use: edwardrjohnson610@gmail.com
  9. I never received any further provenance corroboration on the above, so cannot comment further on what I already stated. Ed J
  10. Sarco in PA might have some. Charles Steen is the senior man, if he's still around.
  11. I think Jim covered it properly. My guess is most folks read it, as the number of A & B series requests has dropped since Jim posted it. However, some folks are in a hurry so we get the questions.....
  12. No serial number info for A series rifles. Website manager has mentioned this before.
  13. Were you the same person that sent me info similar to the above? Did you receive my replies? Or is yours an entirely new situation? Ed J
  14. Price of $500 or more seems high, based on what Randy told me after I called him on the phone.....
  15. Thank you. I'll follow up later. ej
