Dealer Showroom

I was able to obtain a number of books for my reference library from John. I think the hardest item that he let go was some of his books.

There are hard back books, magazines, soft back books and technical manuals. There are even a couple for a young friend just starting the collector road. It was a good book trip. Contact John for your book needs.

Another Webley pistol

On the way back from Oregon my wife and I stopped at a friends house in Nevada. In his very nice collect was a New Zealand marked Mk 6 revolver.

Dealer Showroom deals

Here are a few of the interesting items that I found at Dealer Showroom.

The first and really exciting item is a brand new AR-10 Sudanese hand guard.

I am working on a couple of Enfield projects and was able to pick up a few items toward completing them.

A visit to Dealer Showroom

We arrived at Medford Or. on Saturday and with a rental car drove to Klamath Falls where John Bush and Dealer Showroom is at. John has decided to retire and is cutting back his inventory drastically. With that in mind my wife and I spent all day Sunday and part of Saturday evening looking for and picking up a few items.

John helped me go through drawers, boxes and binds of stuff.

IMG_2090sEvery drawer was a new adventure. You could find stripped Enfield receivers.

IMG_3173sThere were drawers of magazines

IMG_3174sRacks of Madsen parts as well as boxes of misc Madsen items

IMG_3171sShelves of parts

IMG_3170sEvery nook and cranny was filled with parts

IMG_3167sEven found a box of M-1 Garand receivers

IMG_3168sJohn has even decided to reluctantly sell off some of his reference library.

IMG_3165sMy lovely wife spent the better part of 9 hours going through boxes of gun books.

IMG_3172sAnd no I did not buy everything. I did find a few treasures though.

Some of the major stuff that John has are L1A1 parts, Madsen LMG parts, IMI .357 pump rifle, but there is so much give John a call at.

A quick update on the vacation

This has been a awesome vacation. I will have a complete update when I get back home, but so far I have found some great gun stuff, had a fun time everywhere. Just today I went crabbing.

Taking a little time off

After the grueling work schedule I have had for the last couple of months I have decided to take a little time off. A friend of mine and gun lab has offered my wife and I a room at his motel in Oregon for a few days. So I excepted and I am taking a much needed brake. Hopefully it will allow me some time to complete all the videos and write ups I have setting on my computer for posts to gun lab.

The internet access is non existing at the motel and the cell phones will not even work there so I am hoping for some much needed quite time to finish a number of projects.

I am also dropping by dealers warehouse to see an old friend and spend some time there. I will post about the visit there with pictures. We are also stopping by a friends house in Nevada. It should be a fun trip and I hope to have some interesting pictures to share.

A new Category “Arizona day”

During my normal work week I generally drive 1000 miles and go and see some really interesting stuff. Sometimes it a place or an object or just what is going on in this great state. So I have decided to do a once a week or maybe once every two week post about this state.

IMG_3015sThis is the thermometer reading in my fab shop at 6am. In the shade with the evap. coolers going. It is going to be a scorcher today.

What is it Saturday

This might be a little on the hard side. I came across this interesting item and thought you would enjoy seeing it.IMG_2609s
