Hi Richard.
It is unusual for these barrels to burst in the same location, the so called first ring each time. Hmmmm. I'm wondering if these Omani barrels have a larger breech chamber as compared to...

Pistol Restoration - How NOT To

Hello all.
Well, this is the last Ethno gun in my collection, I think. :D
This is a great example of how NOT to restore an antique. It's obvious someone wanted this pistol for decoration, but had...

Hi Bandook.
That is a nice set of shields. Now that you have three, you have one or two to trade for something else down the road. LOL ;) I'm guessing the cost of shipping three was not much more...

Hi Stu.
What we are calling a recoil lug on the bottom of the barrel where the pin goes through simply serves the same purpose as a barrel tang on other guns. The tang being held to the stock with a...
