Not sure where it came from but: "It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt"

It's ok to disagree with someone else's opinions, but regarding the above post by scrambles, he was trying the opposite of being polite and I think that post should be removed as well as it does absolutely nothing to contribute to this topic.

I enjoy this forum to no end, but posts like that are just plain sad to see here.

I believe that was from a witty gentleman by the name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain.

My apologies, I missed this post by Scrambles when I was trying to read through everything in my limited time last night.  His comments have been hidden, as they are inconsistent with board rules and general decorum.

OK, I just saw another post by Scrambles that I did not approve, and have reconsidered my decision to give him another chance...

Since this thread mentions the Berthier swivel that the French added to their Colt Thompson buttstocks, I'd like to request help in finding a couple of the swivels. These swivels were originally found on the buttstocks of Lebel-Berthier rifles from the late 1800's and early 1900's.

If you know of a source for a couple of these swivels, please let me know.

Thanks.

Sorry for digging this old one up again, but a few questions. RChapman - are you in the UK? Gun looks like a UK Dewat. If so, then do you know why the lower is cleaned up and for sale in Las Vegas right now?? https://www.ebay.com...ts/283120439400 I asked the seller a few questions - nothing yet.

 

OK so I just figured out RChapman is banned. But the question stands...

Agree that the comoline should be removed. It's hydroscopic; it absorbs and holds moisture from the air around it. No harm done of course if the piece was stored protected from moisture, or in a dry environment.

I know Rchapman was in Europe, I believe that he was from Italy because he used to sell a bunch of stuff on eBay and it was all shipped from Italy

Thanks - that is what I thought. Just a little foggy now!

 

So the seller emailed me back. I asked where it is located right now as I saw it in Europe a few months ago. We will see the answer...

Is the grip wood or 3D printed wood? It looks funny in the crappy photos

It's probably 3D printed, If I remember correctly he is the one that was making and selling the 3D printed vertical grips

Interesting. The seller on eBay is definitely in Vegas as I've bought Thompson items from him before like my M1 riveted grip mount bar. If that trigger frame is/was the same number that was in Europe a while back then I'm guessing he bought it and is now trying to sell it here. Not sure about the grip due to the aforementioned picture quality.

Also, they have gutted the lower and probably selling the parts separately somewhere.

I dealt with dodge via ebay a couple of times

 

he usually sell things that he have in hand, if the lower is for sale by him i guess it managed to reach Las Vegas.
