Re: Panzerschreck Project

I've been thinking for a while of building a Panzerschreck, but never got round to it, so when one came up for sale, I just had to have one :shock: So now the project isn't building one, but modifying it to use at a game, I think there are probably 2 options, try and fit a mechanism in it so it can...

Re: Incompatible VSR clone help needed

I'm almost certain I've got a spare MP001 hop casting knocking around somewhere, if Pete has no luck.

Yeah, I may have a small problem with Sterlings:

Re: Patchett Carbine

Thanks for the reply, thats exactly the info I was looking for. :good: No problem, like I said, there's no definitive proof either way, but as our group portrays South Staffords, it's something I've done some reading into, as the Patchett/Sterling is one of my favourite guns, and I'd love to shoeho...

Re: Patchett Carbine

The South Staffords were given 100 to evaluate and test prior to Arnhem, but it's likely that they were returned to stores before Market Garden. There's no actual photo or written evidence that they were used in action, from either side. The main real 'proof' of this (as best there can be) is that t...

Re: Cannon wheels

If you go to a scrappy, you can usually pick up a couple of identical space saver tyres for cheaps. They're probably lighter, and look pretty good when painted up.

Re: So you think your hard do ya,

What MartinR said.

I've got both, and the hardshell is almost a suitcase for the pistol. The softcase is much easier to wear and less intrusive on your hip.

Also, like Martin said, I only use it when I'm working an event and in a command role.

You mean to say that self-dismantling when you unbuckle your belt isn't actually part of the design? :lol:

I built one out of a Denix SMLE and a VSR. All I can say is don't bother going that route! :lol:

Re: Ashdown Camp....POW game ??

Myself and Gadge have a complete plan set out for an 'Escape from Colditz' style game, but very few people would be interested in it as there would be no shooting whatsoever, apart from the odd German with a blank-fire K98, so we've never proceeded. It's a shame, I'd love to run it, but the cost out...

Re: Webley holster issues (too much webley)

I think I've got six or seven original holsters now. No two of the buggers are identical, they vary in size massively. A couple will fit my .455, a couple don't even fit the M10, which is smaller than the .38 Webley. Holsters are a definite Goldilocks item, just keep buying 'em until you get one tha...

Nah, that's an Aspidistra, it's actually a surprisingly rare uniform for the French Legion D'Jardinier.
