Waiting for G&G to get their asses in gear and release the G98 now to add to the collection, and missed the MG 42 that was for sale...
Figured as much about the scope, maybe I'm just not into the old school kits as much as others. Very nice guns though, I'm jealous.

I'm half-cheating.






Was a bitch to fit, but now, it works.

Hey, if I can stick a 1911A1 in a Coyote Brown SERPA leg-drop, why shouldn't you stick a Hi-Capa in a leather 1916 holster?
I like the look anyway.

Was freaking hard to fit in though. I've been holstering and unholstering for 2 days now. And about 4 layers of oil and dublin.

Boyso, soaking the holster in water and wrapping the holster in plastic (saran wrap / glad large sandwich bag) before insertion works too. The leather holster should take the shape of the pistol in 24 to 48 hours.

Yeah, I did something like that recently to a leather watchband; soaked it then left it overnight wrapped tight around a bottle slightly bigger than my wrist. Fits perfectly now.
But once the holster is all dried out, then give it a heapin' helpin' of oil and Dubbin, just to make it beautiful and water-resistant.

What I did too. But I had to cut a few sewing spots near the trigger guard.

Real? Yes, they actually exist... But seriously folks, no they're just Old Navy stuff; I saw some OD herringbon twill cargo pants and jacket at a Gap Factory Store, but they weren't on sale enough to get past my wife.

Yeah, yeah, yellow gloves. They're plain old Watson deerskin gloves from Mark's. I'm slowly getting them sun-bleached. They're not nearly as bad as they started out, though.

I got the chance to fire an M1 this summer when I was in Calgary for my sister's wedding. It was awesome. I don't think I would be able to hit the broad side of a barn at 50yrds without some practice though, as it had a hell of a kick and those iron sights were tiny!
