Model HSC Pistol / Testing

Has anyone every performed a Rockwell hardness test(s) on the major components of the HSc ?  It would be interesting to see, if they changed the steel during the war.  We know, they changed the finish.

The only one I know lives in Barksdale, LA.   Is it a cone hammer?

Totally agree with Warbird.   Now a spring in a mag can be a little weak at times, but I want to talk about your gun grips.  Take them off, if you are going to shoot it.  They are too valuable to have cracked.  Put on some cheap repos. if you are going to fire it and save those brittle originals.

General Discussion / Big Bullet

Went to an auction Saturday.  The fellow was an avid metal detector and dug around Fort Scott.  I bought some cannon balls and bullets, plus this big, big bullet.  2" across at flat base and 2 and 1/4 " tall.  Weight about 20 oz.  Anyone guess what would have shot this conical projectile?  I would love to hear your thoughts.

My dad was awarded battle stars to be placed on his europeon campaign ribbin.  He was awarded 5 battle stars.  His DD214 named the battles that each star represented.  I don't have a photo of Lt. Haddock in uniform, so we cannot reference his ribbons.  You would think one of those bronze stars would have a V on it.  Guess not.  You may be right in your observation. ....

You are spot on.  These stamps are from the 1970s.  I have found Peru in 76, Venezuela, Entrada in 75, Venezuela, Salida in 75, Rio in 77, Salida in 76, Venezula in 76 from the Consulado stamped in a 30 day turista , Columbia in 76, France in 71, Argentina in 76 with a 64 inspector, Venezuela in 76, Panama ,Salida, and Tocumen in 75, Brasil in 75, Venezuela in 74, Brazil again in 75, Venezuela again in 74 at Maiqoetia, Nubia in 70 and someplace that only stamps in Arabic in 1977.   It looks like he loved his South America visits.  My family tells me that he ran over a land mine and was in a comma for two months.  I don't see that on his DD214.  I wished I had talked to him more when he was alive.  I did not know he was a world traveler.  We went deer hunting one year, but I think he got bored.  No wonder.
