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: 1917 PTG M91 Japanese trainer

The rifle really doesn't have a follower anymore since the Japanese replaced the entire magazine assembly with a simple metal plate with a trigger guard attached to convert it to a single shot, manual loader. The plate is held on by the front action screw and the trigger sear screw. The bolt assembl...

Re: New to Me M39

Very nice looking B barrel, these are getting tough to find and more pricey as well. I'd avoid doing anything to the stock at all as its already a rather attractive one.. The stocks on these post war M39 builds already have a wood finish on them even though they have a rather dry appearance and any ...

Re: 1915 Matching Westinghouse M91

Very nice N.E.W., I love how almost all the parts have the Meriden M stamp as well. Even the stock has it, very cool.

Re: 47 Izhevsk 91/30

Very Nice! I have yet to encounter a 1947 dated 91/30 but I have managed to pick up 1945 and a 1946 dated examples, neither one of which are ex-snipers.

Re: Pawnshop Predicament

Most pawn shops give you 2-3 months layaway time sometimes longer so you may be able to get all three if you budget it right. If you absolutely can only get one then I'd get the Finn although I'm primarily a Finn collector so I'm biased.

Re: My Liege marked M91

The only Finnish M91 that would have a Liege proof mark is a B barreled M91 that were built post war using barrels purchased from Belgium in 1942.

Re: Finn Round reciever B-Barrel M91

Very nice, I bought my round receiver B barrel off a Gunboards member for much the same reasons. You rarely see these. Does yours have a M27 trigger group? Mine does as do 3 others I've seen pictures of. I wonder if was standard in these builds or just happened to be what was available at the time. ...

Re: 1917 PTG M91 Japanese trainer

Did some tests with a dummy round that I bought of eBay and it chambered and extracted just like a normal Mosin would have. The extractor is being forced over the rim though so it's not something I'll do again just in case.

Re: 1917 PTG M91 Japanese trainer

I hadn't considered that so I'll have to check. I doubt the Japanese fired these due to a lack of 54R ammo thought, they were likely just used for drill practice. I'll probably never fire this one but I have some 54R dummy rounds so I'll have to check and see if they chamber properly.

Magazines for a TOZ-17

Hello all, a friend of mine was cleaning out a barn on some property he just bought and found a TOZ-17 rifle hidden in the rafters. It was clearly there for quite awhile but appears salvageable so he gave it to me. Sadly the magazines are missing though, I've been looking for replacements without mu...

Non import marked TT-33

Thought I'd share some pictures of the 1939 Tula TT-33 I found in a small LGS while killing time waiting for a collector I was buying 2 Finnish Mosin's from to get off work. It's all matching except the magazine and non import marked. I've been wanting one of these for awhile and at 400$ is was one ...

Re: New family member - M28

Slugging the bore is the only way to determine your M28's bore diameter. Without a D stamp it's chamber likely wasn't modified for the D-166 round but it may have been used with Russian ammo anyway during the war so there's no telling what it's current bore diameter is. It originally had a .309.5 bo...

Hello, testing out my new Flickr account after dumping Photobucket and thought I'd share some pictures of one of my more interesting Ex-Dragoon M91/30's. This rifle has a 1920 Izhevsk barrel and a New England Westinghouse receiver. It is in a Finnish pot bellied stock has a Finnish stacked blade fro...
