Sorry Major but even with a sexy bayonet it's stil an unattractive rifle. But it's French like a Citroen, cest le vi. Pardon my french. Monsuirer.

Got one of those AR-type bayonets, got it given to !email a few years ago.  Figure it's my bug out knife if I ever decide to bug out.

Got first coat of oil on the hatchets tonight, went Yuppie and dug underthe bench and found my bottle of Walmart rapeseed oil ala CANOLA oil or as I call it, Canuck revenge.  A little slower drying than linseed oil, but much more water proof.  Saw the other day Homeless Depot has pints of drier, may have to go back and buy a can to spearmint with. 

Need some fiber dics to grind on double bit with.  Stopped at the local real hardware store and my favorite old phart was there.  Always talk to the old phart at the hardware store, they know stuff the kids never imagined.

ST - A local collector was liquidating mostly AR's , Ruger Mini 14's and pump Shotguns...
But he did have this Arsenal refurbished Berthier M1892 Artillery carbine Manufacture d'Armes de Chatellerault ,  w/ bayonet still in cosmoline probably done in the 1930's or 50's stored & un-used since .
Chamber was packed with the stuff , as was the bolt & wood under the barrel.
  
I found the 3 round clips on EBay , bought Prvi Partizan Label rounds, the little gun KICKS like an Arkansas Mule !
I've slugged it @ .329 and will reload with and shoot lead.

Capt Q is your 94 stamped US ?
I'm sure it is stamped US, but won't swear to it. It is one of the newer 70's models, with plastic furniture and that funky safety feature in the lever. It isn't as sweet as the older models with wood, but it is still a trusty rifle.

I thought maybe you had a Government issue coast watchers/ or jailers model with a bayonet  lug.  Friend has one stamp on reciever and stock U.S.

That is not the case, it is a plain 30-30 lever gun, no lug.

@ Delmonico, a lot of these were made in the late 60's- 70's with plastic. I hate it. But, trying to buy wood for it would cost me more than I paid for the rifle. Go figger.

Post a picture, never seen one with plastic till the 90's.

As for cost about $35 should get you a plain walnut 2 piece stock blank off E-Bay.  Just takes simple tools after that.

Couple more inches of the Evil White Stuff overnight, on top of the previous days supply. Secondary paved roads sn*w packed, primary partially covered. Went to town for feed for the cows(slowly). Otherwise enjoying the government jobs holiday.

Thanks for Coffee- Slim

‘spectin’ snow tomorrow. The state has put pre-treat on the interstate.  They must feel there is merit in reports or they just had holiday overtime pay in the budget to spend.  Presently sunny and 55 degrees
We just finished our co-op run. Straw for bedding and a couple bales of hay. Some feed for goats ... extra bedding for pig

Greetings, ladies and germs.  I have returned.  Sort of.

Yeah, my computer went greasy side up on the first.  So I've been using my fancy smart phone for internet things for the past two weeks.  I couldn't find my password for this site, though, so I've been watching from the outside.  I found my password tonight.

Really, not much has happened in California.  We're getting rained on today, and for the past two weeks.  Not enough to really show up in the rain gauge, but enough to get annoying. 
Temps have been in the 50s during the day, and low forties at night.  Good weather for walking the dog, so long as you don't mind getting wet.

Tomorrow I can turn in an application for a new job.    The county road department has a position open for a "Road Maintenance Worker", ie, hold the Stop sign and drive a snow plow.  With my experience, I would be getting roughly $13.10/hr, and I'll get my class A CDL by Summer.  It's a benefited position, too. I have a friend on the 'inside' too, so that should help.

"James shook his head and twirled his Colt into it's holster with a smile.  There was some coffee left in the pot, so he poured it in his cup and leaned against the wall by the door.  The sun was setting in the distance, creating a beautiful sunset. 
   “Texas has better sunsets.”  He heard Terri say next to him.  He turned to face her.
   “Of course it does.  But we gotta get what we can in the mean time.” He said with a lopsided grin.  She smiled back and pulled her Colt, stuffing the barrel into his belly.
   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot. 
   “We saw that, y' know.”  Clint Rounds said laughing.   James turned red and tried to hide his embarrassment."   Excerpt fromTHE FLOPPY HAT FROM TEXAS," being written by yours truly.



   I was told recently that I'm "livelier than a one-legged man at a butt-kicking contest."    Is that an insult or a compliment?

Update on project double bit.

Both sides and the top and bottom are ground and draw filed. One side is almost polished, still a few marks to get out.  When that is done I will sharpen both ends.

The long end will get a low angle sharp one for chopping and the shorter one will get a steeper one for splitting.

Need to shop for a handle, will try to find one with nice grain since I will strip the varnish off, stain it and oil it.
