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.

My birthday day off.

For my Birthday my wife took me to the Samurai armor display at the Phoenix Art Museum. It was a great way to spend the day. The detail of the work that they accomplished is nothing short of amazing.

As long as you did not use a flash taking pictures was not a problem. There was not a great deal of weapons, but the armor is something to admire.

This will be a multi part post as I took a number of pictures.

Here are a few of the full sets of armor that was on display.

IMG_2940csIt was a fun afternoon with my wife looking at some very interesting Japanese armor.

 

Webley 22lr pistol

A webley Mk 4 in 22lr. I am not sure the date that these were made,but it would have to be post WW2.

Looking at the pictures you can see that the pistol grip is shortened and the cylinder is modified.

Gordie K. ,a friend of gun lab, sent some pictures of a little belt fed fun gun he has made. The upper receiver is a Lakeside machine razor back upper.

A pistol grip from a MG-42. The lower receiver machined block of steel.

DSCN0142[1]A barrel jacket from a PPSh 41
