Re: Steel Ford boots are not bullet proof

Re: Another berthier from Vietnam

Just something to satisfy my ignorance. Do these bring backs have any markings to show they were in service with the vietnamese? They had a lot of French Capture in service during the conflict, how can you tell unless you buy the firearm from the serviceman that brought it back? I'm not questioning ...

Re: Enfield:303-25

303-25 is a very popular calibre hunting round in Oz
Worn .303s rebarrelled was very popular in the 60s and 70s.
alot of powder behind a smaller pill is effective against roos and pigs.
Good alrounder

Re: Gun show yesterday.

I'm not surprised with the K31s.

The supply of K31s are starting to dry up in Switzerland.
I believe most up for sale will come out of collections.

Prices are starting to climb for these babys

Re: Another Mas 36

The reason why prices are so high as there are not many in OZ and not many being imported.

Come to think of it, prices are high for all collectible firearms

Vandle,

Your new rifle inspired me to shoot my old Mauser Argentino. My old rifle seems to like .313 diameter cast bullets.FB_IMG_1531791317925.jpg
Glad I was able to help :D

I have alot of FMJs to shoot off first.

I may try some cast bullets down the track
