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: Auto Ordinance M1 Carbine

DON'T waste your time or money with the Inland or the Auto Ordnance. Both are problematic at best. In fact Auto Ordnance makes many of the parts used by the so called new Inland. Quality control by AO is hit or miss at best. This has carried over to Inland too. Look for a good used Plainfield carbin...

Re: Truck Gun

The market is saturated with AR rifles now. In fact you can put together a stand AR for around $400 for everything. Nothing fancy but they work just fine.

Re: You can smell the crap in this listing

When IAI started making carbines, they made the receivers and then used surplus USGI parts. But like may other commercial carbines the surplus parts ran out and they had to make their own. Well like all the others before them the quality went down hill and the demand became very low. As sales were s...

Re: Why would you pay this much for reloads

You can buy new M2 30-06 made by PPU for $299 and shipping per 500 rounds. Suitable for use in an M1 Garand. Why would one buy commercial reloaded ammo when you can get new for the same or better price? PPU is known as being good ammo too.

Re: Spanish 1916 7.62 ammo?

I am not saying I disagree with you BUT I do remember when these rifles first appeared that the caution was with them not to use standard NATO ammo or commercial .308. It was the importer who stated that the CETME rounds were loaded to lower pressure then the standard NATO rounds. That could have be...

Re: Spanish 1916 7.62 ammo?

The Spanish government when they covered the rifles over to 7.62x51 also loaded ammo for these rifles. IT IS NOT loaded to NATO spec but very close to the original pressures of the 7x57 ammo these rifles were made for originally. This ammo was called 7.62 Cetme and loaded to about the 40,000 psi ran...

Ammolab, I agree with what you have said BUT in my years of shooting I have seen some strange things with bullets and what they do and what they don't do.

Re: AK-74 800 yard target damage

It's also possible that the damage from the Russian ammo is because of the steel jackets on the bullets as well as the penetrator. The 5.56 only has the core and a copper jacket.

Re: m-1 Carbine questions

When the Marines came ashore in Vietnam they carried M14 rifles. They did not get M16's till later on. The Navy still has M14's on board many of it's ships. Used more for mine destruction then repelling boarders. But Navy bases had M14 rifles for use by Base Police at least into the mid 80's if not ...

Re: French Rifles in German hands

Lots of conscripts from different countries were armed with French weapons like these. That and some clerks, mechanics, laborers or any other second line units got these rifles. Some German navy units had French rifles too.

Re: 7.62MM Garand

The Naval version of the Garand in 7.62 was issued to the Navy rifle teams and were not used on board ships. The Navy used a chamber insert to convert the 30-06 to 7.62. But sometimes those would come out stuck to a fired case. Later ones had their barrels changed to 7.62.

Re: 30-06 blank identification help please!

Blanks for 30-06 are in demand by may VFW lodges as they have a hard time getting them for funerals they attend for those members that have passed on. I have donated hundreds of these to different lodges in the past. My supply is gone now and I know those I had went to a good cause.

Re: First Carbine!

You do have a nice post war rebuilt carbine. It is more then adequate to take a deer out to 75 yards. Bullet placement is the key to any successful hunt. Most ammo companies make a good soft point for the carbine and a deer is a thin skinned animal.

Re: Low serial numbers, do they add value?

If a low serial number carbine has not been rebuilt then yes the low number will add value to it. But if it has been rebuilt then the value is the same as any other rebuilt carbine.
