I have been remiss here in not posting all the web page additions, revisions, updates, etc. Frankly, I forgot this thread existed. You will see why in a moment.

What follows below are the web pages changed in the past month. In addition to several still in progress.

I realize our website is still lacking certain information I had hoped to have added well before now. It can give the appearance that there is no work being done on the website. There is only one person authoring, changing, and updating the web pages on all three websites. With the help of others who proof read and check the information for historical accuracy.

I want to give you an idea of what you don't see simply because of the time and focus this requires from me. All that follows is a good example of what one month entails.

Just want you to know the efforts are ongoing. Sorry I'm not more diligent in sharing the changes and additions. Kind of constantly busy doing them. In addition to the research.


P.S. We have 3 websites with over 300 web pages...and growing

We been working on it for about 2 months. Credit goes to JB for starting the ball rolling with his detailed article in newsletter 357 in January 2010. We didn't want to go into the level of detail he did as the serial number page is intended as a semi quick and easy reference as opposed to a detailed report. JB's article was a research report.

Dan deserves most all credit for working hard to update everything. Me, I'm just the piano player.

There is only one person authoring the web pages for all 3 websites. With the exception of Bill Ricca's pages, all of the pages are researched and constructed from various different sources. Some require much more research time than others. Almost all of our photos are taken by 3 or 4 members and edited/formatted by the one authoring the pages. A few members proof read them for accuracy.

This is slow going with no estimate on the receiver pages or others.

The pages being authored currently (4-5) are on the early M2 infrared sniperscopes. Hopefully they will be completed in the next 3 months. The late M2 sniperscopes will be next up followed by the M3 sniperscopes. All these will probably take more than a year as much of the info involves time consuming research and verification.

These will probably be followed by a revision and expansion of the page on the M2 carbines. While working on whatever current project is underway time is also taken to update and correct existing pages. Sometimes we need a break and work on a page that will be relatively quick (that rarely turns out that way). :)

Obviously there is a lot that needs to be added, receivers included.

We had hoped to find another researcher who can author and format web pages along with working on the pics to go with them. It requires several special skill sets along with the time involved. Along with a level of quality control that keeps things professional. All concurrent to life's demands and challenges beyond carbines.

Receivers are a special challenge as we will need to decide how involved the pages should be. They are probably not going to be as basic as the info on a data sheet. Think how many manufacturers made them and all the variations they made over time. But we try to limit the pages to a basic and intermediate level with a limited amount of advanced to keep them readable, understandable, and limit the info we share with fraudsters/fakers. With the more advanced being shared on the forum over time.

See any other websites that go into as much detail on a particular firearm as we are trying here? Reason for this is the amount of time and effort involved by people having the the various skills.

No complaints, just trying to let you know why it takes so long and why there is so much that hasn't been done yet. It's frustrating but necessary.

Hang in there ...

You got that right. Most detailed information on any guns I have ever seen. The receiver section seems like it would be next to impossible to do, but we got the best and brightest workin on it
