    Just a good picture

    Sometimes a picture comes out so nicely, ...

    Sure I took it but I often take 20 or more for each one I put in an article. When they do come out this nice I don't even feel like I can take full credit. Instead, I just sit back and admire the work of my muses, ...

    It is just a good picture.



    I always like when my muses put a cool tidbit of info off center in the pic, like the little CM right above the woodline. You don't necessarily see it at first, and then it is like; hey that's cool.

    It is why I say that I can't take full credit for the pictures - had I really thought about it I would have put that CM right in the center of that pic and it wouldn't have been as good. Lighting, focus, composition, angles and of course subject matter - everything comes together every once in a while if you are lucky.

            Darn it. That should fix things.

            Here is another; that unique WRA lockbar.



            As I looked at this picture I tried to think what else WRA had made that might be like this, and was forced to admit that there is nothing, not from any commercial maker.

            We are so enamored with these things that it is almost sacrilege to suggest that this design is somewhat lacking, ... which was a great deal of Winchesters criticism initially; that the design was not ready for production and needed many more months of design and testing before it might be. I mean, really, ... just hang the pinion a bit long and stake a pretty crudely made bar on the end!? If you really step back and think about it, it actually is a pretty ramshackle device on an otherwise outstanding sight - it is obviously an expedient solution to the problem and T105's really were a much more admirable and elegant solution.

            Yet at the same time, even though Garands are loaded with seat of the pants engineering/design like this in every aspect and part, it worked and worked well in virtually every environment that it was thrown into - forged in the crucible of WWII - and ultimately lead to the M14 and its variants that are still sought after and used today.

            It will never happen again. They really are historic pieces.

              Thanks for sharing, I have always admired the Anvil or Chiseled lock bar as I call them. The first CM picture is an add in my browser.

                  OK, I fixed them all finally, I think.

                  I usually get along very well with Fototime but sometimes, ... sheesh.
