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: M1903 Turkish Mauser

I have a 1903 and I agree with you, its one of my favourite mausers.

They are great shooters but imo they feel "right" when you bring them up to your shoulder.
As you said the stock design contributes to this.

Re: My MAS 36

Nice Mas

I love shooting mine, they are quite accurate and ugly as.

They are a handy compact rifle.
If you dont need to pull it down, don't, especially if you
are not the patient type :naughty:

The bolt itself though is one of the easiest to strip.
Go figure

Re: Brazilian M954 Mauser

I believe the threaded muzzle was for a grenade launcher attachment. I don't believe flash hiders were supplied for these.
I have known to be wrong before

Re: Hungarian 91/30

There was the Hungarian Revolution which happened in 1956 in which the Hungarian Communist Government was overthrown.
The Soviets then decided to crush the revolution by invading Hungary's capital Budapest.

One can assume that these rifles may have been used at this time.

Pictures of the back of my head.
I have a face that only a mother could love (maybe)

Seated is me shooting my M954 Brazilian Mauser and of course standing with a Carcano 1895 Cavalry Carbine.

Re: Martini Enfield Mk 11 .303

The whole family of Martini falling blocks are fun to shoot. The .310 Cadets up to the 577-450 are historically interesting. Ian Skennerton's Small Arms Identification Series No. 16 British Empire Cadet & Training Rifles and No. 15 Martini Rifles and Carbines makes good reference material. I don't t...
