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: 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.

Re: Carcano Test Shoot

Sticky bolt can be one of two things. First if dry fired a lot , the slot that the cocking piece rides in can get beat up . That will make the bolt lift much harder . IT can be sanded back smooth . On the custom rifles I build from Carcanos , the more you smooth up that surface , the slicker the bo...

Re: Carcano Test Shoot

Thanks for the info guys. Good discussion as well. I have an update. I bought some of the Graf's and Sons ammo with the long nose bullets and it functioned a great deal better. Now, the only issue was the sticky bolt, but a bit of muscle mitigates that. I'd say accuracy was acceptable, "combat" accu...
