Recently the Daisy King site went down and with it a lot of good info was lost. The following is a cobbled together reproduction of the Straight Stock page. Photos were blatantly taken from the interweb, including but not limited to the blog at PA. I have inserted as many of the missing photos as I could find for now (the Wayback Machine doesn't archive photos), so some photos are still missing. If anyone has any of them, contact me and I'll include them.

Happy to do it but I just wish the text was easier to read. The forum software limits how large a photo can be- and the document is in essence a very long photo.

Nothing I do helps. If anyone has a workaround, I'd like to hear it.

I don’t know how to correct the picture size on this forum, but if anybody wants to see the full size image, this worked for me.

 I right-clicked on Cobalt’s image, chose Copy, then pasted it to my computer’s desktop as a photo.

 I clicked it open in my default photo editor. It showed up as a 2-inch wide un-readable image. But to my surprise, when I expanded the strip with my photo editor ‘size’ tool, it sprang to full page size in crystal clarity. I only had to scroll around the image to see the whole of it.  Maybe this will work for you.

 Thanks to Cobalt for posting the original image.

'Slinger, thanks for the tip- I tried it and it works fine, plus it can be easily saved to the computer.

Glad it worked for you. In your photo-post you mentioned you needed a picture of a "1914 V1 showing screw in the LH of receiver". There is a great picture of that screw in Gary Garber's book on page 100, showing both versions (screw vs rivet) in the same photo.

Okay, thanks. Maybe someone can take a photo of it.

ETA, got your message, waiting for permission before using photo- thanks again!

I spoke to Gary, turns out he doesn't own that photo. So while he commiserates with out plight, he can't grant permission for me to use it. But thanks just the same, your efforts are appreciated.
