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: 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...

Martini Enfield Mk 11 .303

I managed to pick up this Martini Enfield for a reasonable price and condition. The receiver was manufactured in 1883. The bore is pretty good and plan to shoot lead projectiles. This example still retains the small upper hand guard thumbnail_P1030881.jpg thumbnail_P1030887.jpg thumbnail_P1030898.jp...

Re: Antique status of Lebels

Antique status is a bit murkier. If a firearm is pre-1898, and uses black powder or "obsolete" smokeless loads then it probably qualifies as an antique. In the case of the 8mm Lebel rifle, even pre-1898 rifles used smokeless powder loads, and since PRVI at least manufactures "modern" smokeless ammo...

Re: Greek Mannlicher 1903/14

I'm wrapped with it.
They are very well made and the action is very smooth.
The metal work under the timber was almost flawless.

It has become one of my favourites in my collection.

and its design is different from most
