  1. Bob, Will Randy Murray be sending the stock out for someone else to bore and install the mainspring tube? I've heard that there is someone making new mainspring tubes and was wondering how to get in touch with him.
  2. Yuccacapt343, WOW ! is right. If there is anyone who wants a bayonet just like it, for the same price, I'll engrave "888" or "777" or "666" or whatever number you wish to have. I have enough bayonets to let one or two go.
  3. I'm not sure but an auction on Gunbroker may set a new record price for a Johnson bayonet. It's 8:25 PM CDT and the current price is $815.00 with 12 minutes to go.........................http://www.gunbroker.com/item/648559613 Edited to announce end of auction: SOLD: $815.00 plus $10.00 shipping= $825.00 Congratulations to: "Cleveland Plumber"
  4. 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.
  5. A major auction house sold one several years ago for around $4800.00
  6. 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.
  7. Hello again,

    I'm still in need of a locking lug bushing. You may email me at:

    "michaeleroper@comcast.net"

  8. Curious, Thanks for responding to my post. I do need another one. I sent you a PM. Thanks, M48TANKER
  9. PM sent.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. Hey Walt, I'm looking for some barrels and some barrel locking lug bushings. Do you have any? Thanks, MichaelĀ  Roper

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. I went back and found this from Joe in response to a question about using "regular" 30.06 headspace guages.
