Spent most of the day helping a friend inventory/appraise his father’s pistols…
Not a lot of fun, but necessary…
If anyone is interested in a Ruger SR1911 (stainless) there are 2 in 98% condition (maybe 2-3 mags through each), an H&K P30 90% condition, a S&W M&P 45 in 95% condition (didn’t feel like it had the Apex trigger mod), a Sig P200 ST .45 in 95% condition, and a Taurus Judge in polished stainless in 98% condition. If you’re interested, email me and I can put you in touch with him. Prices are reasonable.
I did come home with one pistol though…
Colt Woodsman 2nd Series, manufactured sometime between 1947 and 1950. Grips aren’t in real good shape, but overall the gun is pretty good shape AND there are four mags for it.
I did a low pass by the gun show late in the afternoon and I finally tracked down the guy with the bayonets that I’d stumbled across before…
Springfield Armory M1905 bayonet made in 1907, not perfect, but all there; and in a correct M1917 sheath (WWII issued)
And yes, I did get ‘paid’ in ammo…
This is ‘old’ ammo, but it still shoots!!! 🙂
Good for you!
As she uses the hem of her jammies (mans dress shirt) to wipe the coffee off her computer screen, she knows you think she will make some untoward remark about that last line in your post…
gfa- Sometimes I ‘do’ stumble across good things…
Dammit- Er… waiting for it… 🙂
Heck, the mags make up for the grips.
And love the old ammo boxes.
What an ‘awful’ job! Heh…
Oh! I see a Woodsman shoot out in our future.
Kurt’s place over by the south wall? I got two Remmy Stickers for the P14 AND 1917 Enfield from him.
Paul- Honestly I’d rather NOT have done this particular one…
Stretch- Possibility 🙂
PA- Thanks! I’ll check it out.
Helping a friend, unpleasant as it may be, seperates the good people from the rif raff.
Sweet looking Woodsman and bayonet
grips4u dot net has some very nice grips for the woodsman. I’ve bought several sets from him in the past.
Nice! Good looking Woodsman. Drool!
Fine looking Woodsman, and I am jealous.
WSF- One does what one has to…
Keads- Blind hog again… 🙂
For a brief bit, I thought you were saying the Woodsman was available.
My pleasure. I pity whoever winds up with that job in my case; it will be a real education for them.
Winchester Mark IV. Damn, I had some really great matches with that back in the day. Up for sale?
Ed- Nope, sorry…
ORT- Yep, and I ordered the new grips from grips4u, they had them in stock!
Ed- Nope, sorry…
You’ll be happy with them, I think. Happy to help. Yell if you decide you could use another (pre) woodsman, I seem to have an excess.
Nice ’05 Bayonet! I have a cut-down spear-point 1918 SA for the Garand and a Utica, but not one of the looong ones… Jealous!

ORT- Dang, not right now… Gotta earn more money first!
