Wink

Replaced the course lumpy grips with a set from ALTAMONT ordered in January.  Showed up in yesterdays mail.


They feel better and have a finer diamond checking.


Fitting was only a few moments to contour two small edges.

Old

New

1937 S42 Mauser P08

Just stepping in to also give Altamont a thumbs up. They make very good quality, reasonably priced stuff. Got a pair of their faux bone grips on my tiger wrangler that are wonderful.

While we’re on the subjects of P08 pistols, here are mine.  A 1918 and 1938.

i wish i had known a decade ago - i had a nazi marked BHP , but its long been gone - ive never been able to accept owning these items as much as ive admired them for what they were , i think i owned that one for all of three months , traded for a remington rand with kit which in turn was sold and transformed into an ithica of 1943 vintage , 

oh , the deals of days gone by , if i had everything i once had i would need a separate building just for them ,

...Wink...
Well I'm proud of you for holding them safe even for a short time.
If its the best we can and we do it be proud of your self. . I posesed a French MAS 1935 9X21, I didn't know why I bought the set along with holster, extra magazines brass and dies.

Less than a year later I was able to gift it to a Vietnamese officer I served with in '67/'68 through his son. Col. Deng sends me a Lunar New years card every Tet or a message through his son Leu.

Call it good relations. Smile

Here’s probably my favorite pistol of all time. Not because it is practical, but because it’s probably the first successful automatic pistol and the quality of manufacture is incredible, so much hand work went into getting parts to fit to a very high standard.   This is a pre-war (WWI) commercial.

I would hide that "pistol brace". Biden is trying to pass a law that makes those illegal to own. With that on the pistol, you now have a short barreled rifle, according to Biden...

The shoulder stock is not illegal to own (not yet anyway).  Who knows, they may pass legislation on pistols designed in the 1800’s as “assault pistols” and ban them.  This pistol is over 100 years old now.

there are exceptions , some vintage items are exempt to the SBR classification , but id not advertise anything these days as they are trying to steal our second amendment rights , 

this when they are constantly protecting the killing of innocent babies and screaming that they have that right , they claim we want to steal that "right" from them when killing babies is not protected by our constitution , im not at all sure why we put up with this but at least the dialog is still open ?

Yes, the C97 is one of the exceptions.  But, it’s probably best to delete these photos, which I will do....we are heading in a bad direction in regards to our second amendment rights.  Old Joe said  “no amendments are absolute”.  I bet there are a few amendments that the Dems would say are absolute...he just didn’t think that statement through.

he cant think anything thru anymore , that said i agree there will be some they might want as absolute but they will pick and choose - we need to go after the things they care of or just rid ourselves of them altogether , we have lived within our constitution for a long time - there is no reason to weaken it in any way , there is no reason for two of our three separate entities of government to try to change the third , these were set up to prevent the exact takeover of power that they are attempting , the founders foresaw this and established us such that this could not happen , we cannot allow it - they want us disarmed to facilitate their agenda , it has to be stopped ,
