Swiss Army Tool Kit $135. plus post

The VICTORINOX “Swiss Army Knife” is over 100 Years Old. This useful pocket Multi-Tool was legally registered on June 12, 1897. Over 34,000 of these pocket tools with the distinctive Swiss cross leave the factory in central Switzerland each day.  Ninety per cent are for export to over 100 different countries and serve as ambassadors for Switzerland.
Karl Elsener, the company founder, wanted to create work in sparsely industrialized central Switzerland and counter the emigration spawned by unemployment. To go from hand-crafting to industrial production was at the time adventurous and required enormous determination. Today, this family business in Schwyz provides 950 jobs.
After the soldier’s knife, which every recruit receives upon entering the army, Karl Elsener developed a new, elegant and light weight pocket knife, with six practical tools. He called this new model the “Officers and Sports Knife”.
After an unparalleled success story around the world, the VICTORINOX “Swiss Army Knife” is even orbiting the earth as part of the standard equipment of the Space Shuttle Crew. The knife has also been successfully proven on expeditions: in the arctic ice of the North Pole; on the highest peak on earth, Mount Everest; in the tropical rain forests of the Amazon, and elsewhere. Time and again, it has been a life saver in situations of extreme danger and great need. The New York Museum of Modern Art and the State Museum for Applied Art in Munich have selected it for their collection of excellence in design, and, since Lyndon B. Johnson, US presidents present guests with VICTORINOX pocket knives.
Today, the “Officers’ Knife” is available in over 100 different models. Each knife must undergo seamless quality controls before being released for sale.

Stockman Rifle. 7.62 x 54 Russian

The idea for this rifle came from one of those discussions that are held round the camp fire or after the barbeque. It became known at this discussion that there was a requirement for a rifle that shot well priced military ammunition, powerful enough to shoot, Bulls, Cows Horses, Camels, Donkeys, Deer, Roo’s, Pigs, Dingo’s and knock over a Ram or two at the 500 metallic silhouette range. Of course as it was a knock about rifle for the working man to keep in the truck it had to be very rugged and have the stock designed with a high comb to use a scope to suit off hand shooting. The stock also had to absorb a lot of recoil from a powerful calibre without transferring too much of it to the shooter and also be bulky enough to protect the rifle. (many rifle which have a stock like a knife edge leave the scope and mounts very vulnerable if dropped) It had to be drilled and tapped to take Weaver style bases on top of the receiver. The Barrel had to be heavy, free floating from the stock and be still short and handy. Of course they wanted it to hit a fly on there prize bulls nose without hurting the bull.

3in onStockmane

Well there was a lot of bull around that night but all were seriously firm that it had to sell for less than $400. So Enfield Arms worked particularly hard and had the MAB barrels fitted to Mosin Nagant receivers, the bolt handles were modified to suit a scope the receivers were drilled and tapped and modified to take the mounts on top of the receiver. Wow, what would Vasily Zaytsev (Enemy at the Gate) have been able to achieve with a top scope mounted Mosin- Nagant action instead of his off set side mounts? Then Enfield Arms made a synthetic stock with a recoil pad made from absorb-athane. A soft dense polymer utherane ( Maybe got the spelling wrong) that has greater properties of absorbing recoil than rubber. They also have a five shot magazine. So except for the reconditioned reblued modified receiver they are a new rifle.

The Buyers guide for the Lee Enfield, by Ian Skennerton.
This is one of the handist books around and they are a bargin at $12.00 for evey shooter.
The owners of these rifles contacted us after the last edition and informed us that the published serial number was not complete in the advertisement and that the real numbers began with UF but without books like Ian Skennerton’s the prospective buyer would not know which questions to ask.

If you had a book like the ‘Buyers Guide’ for the Lee Enfield it would encoarge you do to some reserch before you spent your $4200.

Gun Buyers GuideTINYd-01

That reserch may lead you to find The manufacture of the No 4 Mk2 commenced at ROF Fazakerley in 1948/49.  All No 4 Mk2 serial numbers were prefixed between 1948 and 1954 with PF.  A small batch in 1955, the last year of manufacture were prefixed with UF. 
The prefix A was assigned to –BSA Shirley 1942–ROF Maltby 1941–ROF Fazakerley 1942.
Serial number A11390 & A11389 as given in the origianl advertisement would indicate manufacture at ROF Maltby c1941.  Maltby was issued numerical range 10000-19999 prefixed by the relevant alphabetical prefix. Of course with the Mk2 commencing at Fazekerley with a prefix of PF or UF this could not have happened. If you had this 50 page book it could help a person to make there mind up before they spent $4200. Over the years I have had the displeasure of trying to break it to customers that they had made an uninformed decision. Remember Information is power buy books and choose carefully.

The Norinco JW 105. in .223 Remington.


The Norinco JW 105. in .223 Remington.
This is the (Jain Way) JW Model 105, Sometimes called Norinco. These rifles are made in the same factory that manufactures the now famous JW 15 .22 rifle (the Brno Mod One Copy) if you have had a JW15 or know of anyone who had one, you will know that they shoot sometimes better than the rifle they imitiated. These JW105 s are in .223 Remington calibre and have a five shot detachable magazine. They also come with Weaver style mount bases and Quick Detachable studs for QD sling swivels  If you look carefully at the close up photograph you will notice a shiny silver colour, at the breech face,the camera has picked up the chrome plating from inside the chamber. The Chinese are the only non-military manufactures that can afford the chrome process of plating the Barrels and Chambers. They have also chromed the forward section of the Bolt. Chrome plating gives the best protection against erosion and corrosion than anything else besides regualr cleaning. The JW 105 is a copy of the Geveram that was very popular in the 1950s and 1960s, they were very good quality but I believe that Gevarm had to stop making them as the were too expensive to produce.
These are the best value .223 remington centre-fire, repeating rifle on the market.

Slimline Electronic Ear Muffs


Slimline Electronic Ear Muffs
Hear and Protect
Hear normally up to 85 db Electronically reduces & protects hearing, Protects hearing above 85 db, Able to hear normal conversations and sounds to 85 decibels
Over 200 hours of battery life, Auto-adjust headband,Solid state circuit
Rotary on-off volume knob
These electronic ear muffs are a high standard ear muff in design, they are made to feel light and comfortable for all day use. They can be used as standard ear muff when the electronic component is not turned on and will passively reduce noise like any normal ear muff. They have a standard noise reduction rating of 29 decibel and are a Class 5. Once turned on the microphone, located at the top of the ear muff, will pick up and amplify ambient noise. If some one standing next to you talks, their voice will be amplified through the speakers in both ear muffs. Should there be a loud noise, such as a firearm, the electronic ear muffs will automatically cut out and block the loud noise. The electronic ear muffs are designed to attenuate noise about 85 decibels, meaning that they will block out instantly, once the noise reaches a certain level. The electronic ear muffs allow you to control the volume level of ambient noise around you. On the shooting range with constant loud reports, the electronic ear muffs will block this noise. For range instructions or to communicate with another person, you can instantly hear them speak.
At the range or anywhere ear protection is constantly required, but you also need to hear instructions from others or you wish to be more aware of the ambient sound around you, these electronic ear muffs are what you need.

Thought For the Week.
I have been busy writing m  opening statement for the Supreme Court Appeal, many of you like minded people who beleive that you have a right to speak and think your own mind will be intrested in this case. So I have included it below. In the USA they call them Hate Laws. Obama has just introduced them into the USA and Canda has just recinded theirs. Hopefully this will give people some ideas of what the issues are about once you fall foul of theese people and their Anti Discrimination Act.

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another. Reason or Force.
If we are prohibited from Free speech, Reason is denied to us all.
I believed that, Reason was a means of influencing change, that was open to all Australians.
I have been condemned for using Reason. Reason that is determined by my conscience.
I am Forced to go to court, this legislation is given Force to diminish me and Force payment. When I am unable to pay the diminishment, the Court has the Force to imprison me. I am here because I observed a problem and answered questions, as my Reasoned conscience directed me. The Tribunal member accepts in his decision, that I did not state the complainants names, the name of their group or the name of their sexual preference, but admits he says he ‘thinks’, that was what I meant, but did not say.
So I am here not for what I said, not for what I think, but for something the Tribunal member ‘seems’ to ‘think’ I think.
My Reasoning, my ‘thinking’ may be politically incorrect at present, but if Human Beings are not allowed to express and influence change by the use of Reason,
For instance if the type of people who campaign against me, had been prevented in the last few years from advertising their reasons, which are offensive to people who disagree, then they could not have altered the legislation that criminalized their activities.
The knife edge on which the balance of justice swings cuts both ways.
When its politically incorrect to speak your truth and Reason with those who disagree with you. Without that Freedom of Speech who chooses what is Reason and what is not?
Without the right to communicate our own Reasoning, the democracy held within our Constitutional Monarchy cannot exist.
That is why the High Court of Australia has defended the right of free political speech above the laws of personal defamation.
The Constitutions which limit the powers of the Monarch, the Crown, the governor, the parliaments legislation, limiting the power of the Courts yet giving the power to Courts to strike out legislation which is beyond the power of the Crown.
In all of these Constitutions No where does it give the power to limit the freedom of speech. As without that freedom, the system it creates would be unfeasible.
The Tribunal member has given a decision that the State legislation, the ADA91 over rules all the Commonwealth Constitutional protections, the Rule of Law, the Rules of Evidence, the Rule of Discovery and Particulars.
The Tribunal member has interpreted that the Rules of Evidence Do Not Apply, to mean that when no evidence is supplied by the prosecution, he can take his facts from what he reads in the morning paper, or surmise that a person is guilty until proven innocent. Guilty without a Jury, without a committal, without particulars.
The Governor or the Tribunal member cannot assume powers that are Constitutionally denied to the sovereign crown, as no one can have more power than the sovereign, when the Crowns power is limited, no other Governor in our Commonwealth can take it upon themselves to override those limits as their powers all flow forth, from the sovereign.
Likewise the Supreme Court cannot be restricted by parliament to only consider Questions of Law. The Queensland Constitution and the Commonwealth Constitution requires that it adjudicates on the facts.
All the constitutional statutes and cases are referenced in my submissions before the court. My affidavit has been filed with the court, the information that it contains has not been refuted, so it should stand and be determined.
This court has to choose between Reason and Force, not just in today matter but in future similar matters. For three hundred years Courts have been the Champions of Reason. Now this court has to decide if it is to kill Reason and be only a system of Force.
