Art.

Hang those on the wall.
The first one is a Winchester Model 1906 pump action 22.

The second one is a 1917 Enfield Mk III.

I just finished taking them apart and cleaned them up. The Winchester shoots fine. I'm trying to find some .303 British for the Enfield that isn't over 2 dollars a round. Can't wait to shoot it.

NICE !

I think that .22 will rapid fire

303 British Ammo is obsolete, and expensive. If you find mil surplus cheap, it may be corrosive.

So, how's everyone ammo supplies holding up?
BTW
If you had invested $1000 in .223 Ammo in December @ $0.33/round, today you could realize a profit of over $3,000.
I pretty much did this

I bought 6k rounds 0f 223/556 over last few years in bulk at an average price of .25, I still have around 5k rounds

My ‘58 Corvette has appreciated too; I’m planning on running the Commies over. Hell, they’ll probably run away just smelling the exhaust due to allergies.

Updates on Remington Lonoke Ammunition plant.

Remington was broken up as part of their bankruptcy of 2020. Remington Ammo is now a stand alone company, all they do is produce ammunition............ and they are serious about it.

They run 4 shifts a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, around the clock. They are producing staggering numbers of ammunition. 6.85 Million rounds a day, with a goal of 2.5 Billion rounds a year, if the supply chain can hold up. Remington ammo needs 44 million pounds of lead a year, plus copper, tin, etc.

For perspective.
- The US produced 26 Billion rounds a year in WWII
- The current US military buy 1.6 Billion rounds of small arms ammo annually
- Ammunition sales have steadily increased in the 21st C, as of 2018 the US produced 8.7 Billion rounds
- - of the nearly 9 B rounds, 5 B were rimfire .22 cal

When the 2020 ammo sales numbers come in, I expect them to be record breaking, as will 2021.

If I ever get down to Arkansas, I'm going on a tour. This shit is impressive.

Alexander Hamilton’s Pistols Headed to Auction, Expected to Set New Records


Immensely historic and impeccably documented pair of national treasure flintlock holster pistols inscribed “AH”, and presented to Revolutionary War patriot, Founding Father and first United States Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton by General Philip Schuyler, accompanied by Hamilton’s field service epaulets worn by him while serving as an officer under Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army and future first President of The United States of America, George Washington
