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: Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

I can't positively say that's the issue but I'd give it a shot. Any connections still on parts? Thanks.

Re: Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

Hi First time posting, and I don't know if this is going to help. I had similar experience with my Rasheed, sometimes the bolt will not return to full battery due to gas port setting, cuasing the lite strike. Try to manually push the bolt, like the forward assit on the AR. If this is the cause, you...

Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

Had my Rasheed for a while, but only recently field stripped it for inspection, cleaning, and lubing for a test shoot. I read that many of these were not used in service, but I think that isn't the case for mine. It is in good condition overall, but definitely has that carried look and there is wear...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

72 usmc, those were my thoughts exactly about the rifle after posting my experiences of shooting mine (the thread is a few below yours). I know they were never as popular as other milsurps, but it should not be this complicated to enjoy a surplus rifle. I am not set up to reload. Like you initially,...

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

That's a nice one. I recently bought from the AIM Surplus offerings which is nowhere as nice as yours. Plenty of holster wear and it has the NY DOC disc glued to the left side of the frame. Grips are very worn and discolored. Still locks up very tight though. Should still be a great shooter.

Re: Chinese Mosin t53

That's a pretty nice one. Mine has a lot of "character" to it. It is import marked, but I am fairly confident it has been in "the shit" as they say.

Probably a wise move.

I'll start my own thread and post a few pics of my M-91's. I kinda hate to post a bunch of pics of my rifles in someone elses thread
I certainly wouldn't mind if you did. It'll be just a M91 pic thread.

Nice, I wonder if they really are that rare? Perhaps uncommon would be a better position.

Re: My Liege marked M91

That's the exact site I got the info from, then and now. I have to double check what other markings are on it. I don't think anyone would go through the trouble to fake markings on these. It is a 1942 dated, from top to bottom, it has "SA", "B", "VKT", "D", serial number, then 1942. It is almost ide...

Re: My Liege marked M91

That's the exact site I got the info from, then and now. It isn't B marked, but it is an M91 according to length, features, etc. I don't think anyone would go through the trouble to fake markings on these.

My Liege marked M91

I only paid a little over $300 for this years ago. Not knowing much about it at the time, and yet I knew it was something unique.

Re: Carcano Cavalry Carbine

I just got one also, except mine has a fixed sight. Same manufacturer. I think from reading, it is an M38 cavalry carbine. The fixed sights indicate m38 but I believe that brecia manufactured m38 carbines with the adjustable rear sight just to confuse things a little. Yes I've been reading some sit...

Re: Milsurp collector age

35, started around 21 but was interested in firearms since I enlisted in the USMC at 17. I'm more of a gun collector/shooter more than a milsurp only guy, though I certainly have a lot of milsurps. I can honestly say I don't know how many firearms I own at the moment. Definitely need another safe.

Re: For Sale Section - Am I blind?

Not sure if it was possible after the site went down, but they should have taken into account how long members had on with the old site and granted access to the classifieds that way.
