    Got one off the brown truck today. It's a 1947 Izzy laminated stock from AIM. The numbers match except the mag is lined out. If I'm reading the bullet test right, it doesn't appear to be counterbored. Bore is dark. I'm not really a good judge of rifling condition, but it has some. Typical refurb mark on the stock.
    Actually, I love it. I was hoping for a "late model", and the laminated stock looks really cool. Man, you gotta love that C&R license! $79.00 plus $10.00 shipping. I bought 100 rounds of that "20 to a baggie" ammo from smokewagongear.com too, and it came at the same time the gun did. I'm set.
    Sorry for the crummy pics, they really don't do it justice, but my cheap camera s**cks. Think I'm gonna get the revolver next!

  2. it's nice! yeah, you gotta get the revolver now. i'd have a few but kali residents aren't allowed to recieve handguns with there c&r. i feel a road-trip coming.
    let us know how it shoots when you get a chance.

    Mine took almost exactly 30 days. That seems to be about average. It's amazing to buy these guns for so little money, especially when you see what people are asking for them at gun shows, online auctions, etc. Definitely worth the 30 bucks for the license.
     
  6. took three weeks after they cashed my check.

    I gotta agree! I grew up the son and grandson of carpenters, and nephew of a millworks cabinetmaker. The furniture on the M44 is gorgeous! [​IMG]If I could afford one of those chromed, laminated-stock jobs from Classic Arms Inc., I'd buy it in a heartbeat! You couldn't use it in the woods, but you could use it to warm your heart on cold nights...

    That's just my way of avoiding a sticky bolt.

  12. It does? :bigeyes:

    That explains the powder burns, and all that yelling at the range. Really hard to hear with that noise-cancelling headset on.:burnout:

    Holy cow! Is that why I've got to go retrieve the bolt after every shot?

    I once saw an engraved plastic sign - about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" - glued in the cockpit of an Air Guard F-106 fighter, on the sidewall: "Keep pointy end in front."

    I didn't know it applied to guns, too!

    Well, you could reload your bullets backwards. Then the enemy won't know from which direction they were shot!

    The funny thing Steve is that I sat here for a few minutes trying to figure out how one could reload a bullet backwards! I think I have been working too hard! :nono::09::hitwithrock:
