Remember a thing called a newspaper? There was always the comics section, but the Sunday paper always had a bigger section, and it was in color!

Some of the musings offered a quick chuckle, others might have required some thought, some items would just go over your head as the target might have been something geared to the adults.

So here is a first offering that might be obvious to most, but may leave others scratching their heads.


Shhh!


If you come across a carbine item that makes you chuckle please post it here.

Anyone with drawing skills? maybe some comics of your own?

As to last Sundays replies, Smoke pole said it best with it must be worth 4x more! Clown

Wayne, Never seen the U.S. marked. Someone had asked me about a oiler with SW on bottom as well as the cap, Guess that one is worth twice as much! LOL

Here is this Sundays submission. It was on an auction site a few months ago. Unfortunately I never checked what someone though it was worth.

1948
Jack
Armstrong
The All American Boy
by Bob Schoenke

Jack and Billy, flying in Heli-packs, are looking over a large estate from which they suspect munitions are being smuggled to the Middle East.
Billy: I don't see anything suspicious Jack.
Jack: seems to be just an ordinary... Say, that garage is unusually large

Billy:there's no pier... How could they possibly load a ship from this place?
Jack: It's getting dark, let's get back.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack1.jpg

Jack: Hi, Joy! Still Here? We came back for something.
Billy: Some equipment for seeing in the dark.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack2.jpg

Billy: We'll be back soon, Joy. Stay right hear in the car.
Joy: Ah wish you all wouldn't be too long, 'cause ah'm gettin' jumpy all alone in these ol' woods.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack3.jpg

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack4.jpg

From 1946 on the Sniperscope ans the Snooperscope was all the rage, as seen here in the comics section.
What type carbine and make?
What model scope?

Seems loose lips, and the "News" sinks ships!
Was there really a "Jet" powered helicopter back then?

What other interesting item was mentioned?

Happy Sunday!

They did experiment with a copter that had small jets on the ends of the rotor blades. They gave up on it rather quickly since it was far noisier that the conventional rotor.

Only one partial answer so it goes to Smokepole for the "Tip jet" or "Ram jet" helicopter.

and yes they could be quite noisy. If anyone is familiar with a pulse jet engine they would know

Attributed to Colonel Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller during the Chosin Reservoir campaign in Korea, November 1950. Quoted in Marine! The Life of LtGen Lewis B. (Chesty) Puller, USMC (Ret.)

"We've been looking for the enemy for several days now, we've finally found them. We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them."

@Ping, unfortunately there is an individual selling refurbish services for stocks and putting farcical stamping on them, similar to what you show.
Problem being they are being touted as original by some.

Speaking of farcical, list the errors, misplacements, inaccuracies, etc.

Amusing
I got about halfway through. 
His comment about making their way to the trenches reminded me of the story of a visitor to a battlefield.  The visitor supposedly says something to the effect of "Isn't a good thing this park was here so they would have a place for the battle."
I've heard some comments pretty close to that so I can beleive it happened.

A few months ago I ran across a needed round Winchester bolt on eBay for a very fair price. The seller  stated that it was stamped with a "W". The pictures were crappy so I couldn't tell for sure, but I bought it. Turns out the stamped "W" was actually a paint stamped "M" and the bolt was a post-war replacement. I asked for a refund and it was granted. But the prique turned around a relisted it as a Winchester bolt and sold it to someone who didn't know better. 
 So now he has listed a  https://www.ebay.com/itm/304270957495?hash=item46d7f65bb7:g:hWQAAOSwSpRhv5V4" rel="nofollow - USGI WW2 M-1 carbine C marked WINCHESTER barrel band w sling swivel Type 2 | eBay

Anyone can post a funny! Anyone?

Here is a S-A marked in the slingwell!
Look how crisp the this baby is with that CC, hardly any signs of sanding! Clown
It would seem Springfield was not getting enough credit for their stocks because collectors could not find the marking in the slingwell, so to boost their street credibility, for future collectors, then started marking the slinwell as well, just like a real WW2 stock should!


In fairness to the seller he states he "restores" stocks and that he added the Springfield stamps.

I was not sure if a batter could balk so I went to the rule book

By rule, a batter can not cause a pitcher to balk. A balk is the result of an illegal action by the pitcher while any base is occupied. If the batter leaves the batter's box with both feet during the pitch and the pitcher delivers the pitch, two strikes are called on the batter.

So get back in the box, 3 balls two strikes. Swing, miss, or walk

LOL, well you pulled your swing on this one.

It is an Underwood bolt that someone attempted to weld up the marking and stamped the lug.

The problem is when welding it messes with the hardening of the bolt, more specifically the lug may now be compromised. If the lug was annealed to stamp it may be too soft. The welding area heat creeped to the back of the lug where it locks up in the receiver.
Think of what the damage to the receiver would be when the bolt breaks.

Next we have what must be the Holy Grail submitted by a member.
We usually try not to post current auctions.

Diamond'd KR,
I'm wondering where they came up with that idea?
Wish I could measure the thickness, where it's marked.
Think it was ground away to stamp this mark?

See no signs of over stamping, though I suspect manipulating or the grinding thinner mentioned above.
Also see NO hardness punch marks.

Possible it's a Cast Hammer?
Either way someone thinks it's worth over $40+.... With NO returns accepted.
3 bidders, all with many transactions. Current lead bidder with over 2105..... I bet he's on pins and needles as the clock ticks down:14:38, 14:37........

Interesting but pitiful at the same time.

There is another antique mall in Lewisburg west of the above location. I assume the Street of Shops was once Roller Mills East.

It's a fake Winchester barrel because I don't think they ever used swaged gas cylinders to my knowledge, but I can't figure out who made it. My guess would be inland made to look like a winchester maybe?

Yeah, I thought winchester only made the one type of barrel during their entire production.

Yeah once in the 1940's by the Department of Sea Turtles and again in the 1960's or maybe 70's by the DOD as an acceptable Jeep part. LOL

What happens when you don't buy the complete set of letter stamps.

Does anything jump out to say these markings may be fake? Granted the seller does state "These AKI marked bayonets are said to be old commercial copies"

It's a "Knive" without a scabbard. Pronounced "naive" ;)

Yep, "Knive" is the obvious giveaway but there is another one a bit less apparent.

Sorry for the delayed response. I just saw this as I didn't get the notification of the post (and several others).

If you still have the barrel, can we see a pic looking back at the front of the gas piston cylinder where it attaches to the barrel and about 3" in front of it? Also a pic of the breach showing the entrance to the chamber.

This looks like it may be an insert, where a barrel is milled down and inserted into the rear of a demilled barrel. Need to see the above to determine if this is the case.

the swage on the gas cylinder is a clue. This is probably a Green Mountain barrel or one the fakes made by L&S or Riverfake

Unfortunately this sold BIN and could not get a better picture of the breech. I am thinking a SG made barrel that was ground and they added the PW.
If the buyer reads this post maybe we can get some measurements.

Winchester did not use a swagged cylinder.
Companies that did was
Inland
BLC
Saginaw Saginaw location
Rockola
Buffalo Arms

The area that caught my eye is the barrel in front of the gas piston. Maybe not as what it appears to be which is why I'd like to see more pics. Obviously not available.

This prompted me to add a post to the forum showing the various gas piston areas for the commercial manufacturers. Often this area is unique and can ID who made it or used it. I've avoided doing breakdowns comparing all the various commercial parts to one another but barrels are worth having for future reference.

Have a look at the Federal Ordnance barrel and you will see what caught my eye above.

Any guesses on who the seller of this Saginaw is? We will give him a bit of credit this time though because he included this line in his listing. "Possibly the stock is a reproduction" Hmm only possibly?

USMC Modification


Auction Description
"Carbine has a U.S. Marine Corps attributed modification performed to the rear sight with a large open V notch cut in place of what was originally a closed peep, as a means of making the sight picture similar to the M1903 Springfield rifle then in service during World War II with the U.S. Marines, and also to improve visibility in low light conditions. Reportedly, the U.S. Marine Corps received approximately 330,000 M1 Carbines during World War II, which is about 5% of the total production between all of the contractors. Most of the U.S. Marine Corps issued examples would have seen hard use in the most important battles of the World War II Pacific Theater, with very few positively identified U.S. Marine Corps issued examples today. The V notch sight modification is considered to be a possible telltale feature linking an M1 Carbine to being a Marine issued example and has been noted on some of the few examples today that have known Marine provenance, making this a desirable example to the discriminating U.S. Military arms collector. Rock Island Auction Company recently sold a Johnson Model 1941 semi-automatic rifle with similar U.S.M.C. attributed sight modifications"
