Prison Guns

The below photo is of a double barrel pistol that was loaded with matchstick heads behind a steel bullet. I guess it would be fired using a lighter. On a related note: how to reload primers using matchstick heads. [ Many thanks to James, of Hell in a Handbasket, for [Read More…]

Mexican cops using C-Mags?

An upside down Enfield

The action in this rifle is an inverted Enfield M1917 (or maybe Enfield P14). It was done so that a lefty could use it! [ Hat Tip goes to Max Popenker for finding this bizarre creation. ]
