Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

I did not buy my 1st Model 10 until I was around 50. It is a heavy barrel and holds well.

However, my first handgun, bought on my 21st birthday was a Colt Police Positive Special. A much lighter gun with the same barrel weight. Both are great handguns.

Re: 91/38 carbine

On other forums, Italian members have stated that when Finland sold the surplus lot in the late 1950's to early 1960's, some small numbers were bought by Italian dealers and sold back to the Italian public. Sam Cummins did not buy every single one. The original poster can only state that he has had ...

Re: Japanese type 30 hook safety Rifles and Carbines

Were that my little collection that I had to release for any reason, I would get a professional appraisal. Some Gunbroker gurus are able to access past auctions for a check of what rifles actually sell for, but I am not one of them.

Re: Arisaka Type 30

The type 30 and 38 are basically chambered for the identical cartridge. Often, worn military rifles that key-hole or otherwise shoot poorly with standard .264" bullets will shoot much better with the Hornady .267" bullets, or other semi-custom bullets in the same diameter. These were originally mark...

Re: Turkish Forestry Carbine

I believe part of the reason they were built was to "make work" for armory workers with no supply expenses, only labor.

Re: Moschetto modello 38/6.5 counter-bored barrel

As I understand it, these are carbines that had the folding bayonet removed, the lugs ground off, and a barrel extension welded onto the muzzle. All this was done to comply with older BATF regulations stating a rifle had to have an 18" barrel. Most say this was done by the importer, such as Interarm...
