    Ok, here's the story, apart from being a militaria dealer, I am also an RFD (Registered Firearms Dealer) This allows me to play with lots of toys, without having to put that variation in. And as fortune would have it Pistols are section one on the Isle of Man. Happy Days, anyway..........

    I got this a couple of years back, found in a loft!.................. and didn't know what to do with it, it was too far gone to shoot, and I really hate just de-activating them, so I thought I would try something different. It took me a long time to find the time to get around to it, but the results are pleasing to say the least
    Some will say sacrilege, others will say it's nice.....Me? I think it's fantastic, and rarely will you find another.

    The pictures are not great, taken with my phone, but in all it took me 26 hours of hard graft. The pitting all over the gun was dreadful, All the rounds are inert, and now the pistol is de-activated, but looks much better than the standard de-act, I think

    Fantastic, now to find a beat up P-38 and K98 and do the same
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
