" Cleaned Up" Berthiers

It seems like rifles that were at one time considered less collectable are being "cleaned up" with stock sanding and touched up bluing with an increased price tag by local gun show dealers and private individuals. It could also be that a lot of sporterized versions are coming out of the woodwork. I ...

Re: 7.65mm French Long Load

Huntington Die and Midway both carry Bertram brass. I have yet to reload the Buffalo Arms brass I got.

Re: gun insurance

I have been using this company for 3 years with no issues and I didn't have to give them any serial numbers. I am paying $165 a year on $30,000 because I live in Florida, it's cheaper in other states. I have never had to make a claim, knock on wood. Butch https://www.easterninsurance.com/insurance-q...

Re: 8mm Carcano

" Who's headspace gauge did you use? Ours or theirs? If you use ours ( SAAMI) you took an improper reading and got false results." It was a SSAMI gauge. It appears a gauge made to CIP specs is considered a wildcat. That 7.92 Carcano had a pristine bore. Butch

Looking For Reload Data For 1892 Berthier

Looking for reload data for my new 1892 Berthier Carbine. I have Lee data, but the consensus is it is to slow. Looking for safe data with no issues. Thanks, Butch

Carcano M41 HandGuard

I have an M41 Carcano hand guard that is missing the wood between the rear band and the front. I bought a 10" piece of front butt stock section from a Carcano to try and repair it with. It appears to me the easiest way to fix it would be to shape the missing part that the rear band wraps around and ...

Terrible M41 Trigger

My new M41 has a terrible trigger compared to my other Carcano. It is mushy, it doesn't feel like a 2 stage trigger. Any ideas on what to look for? Thanks, Butch
