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: 1898 krag sporter

Always do what you desire and want... But many times bringing a gun back to the original cost can cost more then just going out and buying one in original condition... But more important do what the heck you want with it.. everything we do takes time and money so if this is what you want.... do it....

Re: german stuff

JP Sauer & Son Manufacture, love your work, converted by the Israelis to 7.62 or maybe the Czechs.
Like to see the other markings on the receiver.
Thanks for the pics

Ditto on liking the rifle.
But i gotta dispute the weight issue. They weigh the same as the M1.
I think its just the extra 2 inches of barrel that throws things off.
I think you are correct but we are not allowed to play with those type of toys here (M1)

Re: m 1917 eddystone

My Eddystone is one of my favourites as well. It maybe a little heavier rifle than some but it absorbs the recoil well.

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

The " Tanker" model generally refers to the spurless hammer version which was designed so the hammer did not snag on clothing, equipment etc while in confined spaces. ie inside a tank.
