    Maybe you have to gently remove some corrosion around the mp40 screw.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Just how relic is that barrel? Is it clear? Does it have rifling? You should consider the legalities of what you are doing here. I'm not trying to spoil things for you, but you really need to be careful these days!
