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: ca. 1905 c96 broomhandle. interesting marks

Thanks! Heck, I bought the dang thing before I even noticed the French marking on the barrel. I guess now I will have to try and scavenge an original stock/holster for a reasonable price. Not likely as originals go for near what I paid for the gun.

ca. 1905 c96 broomhandle. interesting marks

Well, I took a flyer on this at the local gunshop. No import mark. All matching including last 3 digits underneath the grips. 5 digit serial # ties to about 1905, so a pre war commercial. Possibly used in WW1 sometime? Ulm proof marks. no stock, case or holster. On top of the barrel is marked "Manuf...

Re: Gun shows

Hit or miss on deals. Usually not any at the big shows, like the Tanner one. I usually find better deals on the consignment rack at the LGS, though I have to drop by fairly often.

If it were me, I'd keep it. No telling when you might need it for a project.

Re: K98 stock oil?

I have green scrubbied the first BLO into the stock, wipe off the excess, let dry a couple of days, then hand wipe in one or two more times using latex gloves. If really dried out it will need more than one coat. Very nice rifle.

I have the insert for Mosins in .32 ACP. It is a good way to check functionality.

Re: Turkish Forestry Carbine

"more to it,"


The clips were hard to obtain, also. Liberty Tree Collectors have some of the proper 3 rounders. the 5 round ones will fit but stick out.

Re: RC K98k

There is one that was at the local gun shop @ $500, overpriced IMHO. Price had been dropped from $650. It is gone now and I do not know what it sold for. i sold one in the same shop a couple of years ago for $425 and I was surprised it sold at that.

Re: Turkish Forestry Carbine

"does anyone know why the turks converted the rifles to this form????"

Supposedly so thieves could not make away with the Turkish walnut forest wood. If the thieves did acquire a forest carbine , it was in an odd caliber and was pretty useless to them.

Re: 1895 Chilean long rifle

The bayonet has a faded Chilean mark and is made by solingen. Looks period, even if not matching to the rifle
