Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Hello collectors!

If someone is looking for a good book about the U.S. M3 / M3A1 “Grease Gun”, Schiffer Publishing has now published my English language edition and it is now available.

The book tells the complete story of this remarkable weapon, from its development via manufacturing through to its use in combat, with description of accessories, ammunition, experimental and foreign made models. The reader will find many hitherto unknown details, background information and numerous photos.

224 pages with 551 color and b/w photos

Size: 8 1/2" x 11" x 7/8"

ISBN13: 9780764360589

It is available now from Schiffer books (USA), Amazon or other booksellers.

Unfortunately it is NOT available from me, because I’m in Germany and I do not have any books here.


Ian from Forgotten Weapons has done a great book review:

With best wishes
Michael

thanks for the heads up,
I'll pick one up for my brother, he has my Father's factory cutaway, that was a registered receiver,

take the cutaway bolt and barrel out and install the new bolt and barrel and it runs like a top (tho odd to shoot a cutaway full auto)

and it's papered, so legal!

Grease gun? Been there - did that! Bought it at Graves Registration in Dong Ha for like $20. Couldn't get it back, of course. Sold it to an Army n00b & got my $20 back. SW
