My greatest congradulations for a truly incredible production presentation mobilized by Perry and his Buhay Na Kasaysayan Reenactment group.
I know the UP DMST has a rayadillo honor guard corps and thats where the honor guards came from. Their M14s just look out of place beside the resplendent finery.
They should have raided the UPIS armory with the dummy M1s - it would have been closer to the bolt action rifles of the time, if not in look at least in age!
We didn't have M1's at UPIS. We drilled with dummy 1903 springfields, remember? According to Perry, the M1's and 1903's at DMST were taken by the government to secure the firearms against terrorists, coup plotters, politics, what have you. As a result, I think they were stuck with airsoft replicas. But I agree, the dummy non firing 1903's from our high school would have been a better substitute.

The easiest way that I help them is give them accurate measurements specs in a "blue print" form as the Ortegas have one and I can email lots of photos from different angles of the Remington rolling block as a start.
Sending a mold is a rather huge long item to ship, unless it is divided up into 2 or 3 major sections.
Why is there a white "G-string" apron covering the groin area of Bonifacio's statue? Was it vandalized?

Have forwarded the new info about the new museum of the Pinaglabanan Monument to Perry. And have told him to try and meet up with SJ mayor to possible plan a list depending on their budget. Thanks for the tip.
Replica rolling blocks are out there. If Pinoys can make a jeep from scrap metal they can make repro rolling blocks.
Is the blue uniform, Guardia Civil?
Sure they can make jeeps out of scrap and old car parts, thats because there are already thousands of jeeps in the Philippines, it's the same with M-14s and M-1 Garands...... The problem we have is that there are no Remingtons or Mausers in the Philippines to copy, not even some detailed photos with dimentions.
If I thought I could get an original Spanish Mauser or a Rolling Block through Philippine customs and delivered into the loving arms of Perry and Ding, I would have done so 8 months ago....... it seems that even with military and UP connections no one has come up with a safe solution for shipping antique rifles into the country.
oh.... and yeah that is a Guardia Civil.... wierd huh?
here is the description U.S.A. M1865 "Remington" Rifle - Antique Gray Finish Replica of first cartridge firing system, rolling-block sporting rifle. Complete with full length wood stock & working action. Decorator Model. Length: 44", Weight: 5 Lbs
this is the "sporting rifle" which is why it is so short 44" .... I think I will go ahead and buy this one, the action and the stock are identical to the military version, they will need to elongate the forestock and barrel and add a bayonet lug....
the question is, even though this is a totally fake non-firing replica will they allow it through customs?
