  1. I've got a repro bayonet. PM sent.
  2. Joe, so glad to hear you are recovering. Best wishes to both you and Ed. Here's to a better 2019.
  3. I did a search a couple of months ago and saw that Mr. Scott had some last year. Sent him a PM and an email but haven't heard from him. So, I'm wondering if anyone else has one. Please send me a PM if you do.
  4. Darn. Sold my pristine 7mm barrel last month for only $750.
  5. Just listed my oldest M1941 Johnson SN 3539 on GB. Item # 789462193 - penny start, no reserve. I also listed a super nice 7mm barrel on fleabay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1941-Johnson-Rifle-Barrel-7mm-Chilean-contract-reimport-with-locking-bushing/273519585848?hash=item3faf09aa38:g:0fcAAOSwC0dbzS38:rk:2:pf:0 Thanks
  6. If you look closely, you will see that the bolt didn't make it all the way back on the fourth shot and the brass was reinserted into the chamber. Therefore, the bolt did not lock. So, I would call it a short cycle with a failure to eject. You can watch it real time in the middle of the film and you will notice that the brass does not eject. As for the cause, I can only relate what happened to me. One of mine did the same thing due to chamber roughness. Since I polished the chamber, she's been good as new.
  7. It's been around for awhile, but I just found it. One of our friends to the north shooting his M1941 with some good slow motion shots. Although he doesn't mention it, the rifle malfunctions after the fourth slow motion shot. See if you can tell what the problem was. Here's the link:
  8. To be sold Sept. 28 on the following site: http://www.amoskeagauction.com/97/127.html
  9. My no-prefix JSAR is a well used re-import with a fairly shot out barrel. I've tried everything from Lake City ammo to hand loads of various bullet/brass/powder combinations but it has been a 10 MOA rifle at best. That is until I tried some Moly coated Hornady 168 grain HPBT bullets. Loaded with 41.5 grains of H4895 this barrel, which will swallow a bullet at the muzzle, is now shooting a 2" MOA at 100 yards. Now, it's shooting slightly better than the 7mm new looking barrel that I bought to replace it. BTW, I've clocked this load at between 2223-2288 fps. As usual, this is for informational purposes only. Do not try this in your own home.
  10. Mr. Johnson, I'm sure you've considered donating to different gun museums around the country. You probably haven't heard about one of my favorites that is in Claremore, OK. It's the Davis Arms Historical Museum - home to over 13,000 firearms - on historic Route 66. As it is near Tulsa, I imagine that Mr. Scott has visited. Here is the link to their website: http://www.thegunmuseum.com/
  11. Oops, sorry. I just revisited this thread. Here's how I did it. First I "Googled" the process and read a lot of information on other gun boards. Combining that information with the Oxpho-Blue directions and using some trial and error, I arrived at this process (this is for retouching, not a complete refinish): 1. Remove as much rust as possible and clean with alcohol. I didn't want to use an abrasive as suggested on the bottle as I wanted to preserve as much of the original finish as possible. Steel wool wouldn't work at first because the rust tore it apart. Following another's suggestion, I smashed the throat of a spent 30-06 cartridge and used it as a scraper. It worked great. Once the big chunks of rust were knocked down the steel wool went to work. I used 0000 steel wool. Remember, you can't get into the rust pits with the wool. That's the chemical's job. 2. Saturate a small cotton ball with solution and cover the entire part. Areas not darkening should be re-cleaned and solution re-applied. You can control the darkness by how much you apply and how fast you apply the solution. Also, you can re-apply it over itself to darken. I kept at it until I matched what was left of the original finish. 3. Allow the chemical to work without drying 60 seconds and wipe dry in one pass with a clean cloth. 4. Now, the bottle instructions say when completely dry, burnish with #0 steel wool, or finer. Do not do this unless you want the part to be shiny and look like it was blued. Just wiping the part dry keeps the "Parkerized" character that you are probably looking for. 5. I let the parts sit for 24 hours and applied Remoil. Regards, Gary
  12. I just take a short flat blade screwdriver to the range with me and snug the screws up every so often. Loctite® sounds like a good idea and might be worth trying, but I like to loosen my stock screws before I put the rifle back in the safe.
  13. Regarding Oxpho-blue, I used it to rescue a rusty Johnson that I purchased on GB. Here are before and after pics of the barrel. Before After This one is now my best shooter. Thank goodness the bore was practically pristine with just some minor pitting at the muzzle. So, yes I recommend Oxpho-blue. The last Johnson I saw at a gun show that was re-parked was so tight that it would not cycle.
  14. One of mine had that problem when I received it. The cleaning that Mr. Scott suggested helped, but I couldn't fix the problem until I discovered a small spot of brass protuding from a pit in the chamber. I used a dental pick (Harbor Freight) to pull the brass from the pit and have had no more problems with extraction.
  15. Hey Tanker, I was surprised that you weren't bidding on it. I'm kind of glad however, because I'm the lucky *** that won it. I couldn't believe that there wasn't that much interest in it. Tell you what, you can have the next one as my collection is now complete. Brian, I hope you got what you needed for it and I'll contact you directly to work out the details.
