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: Acquired a 98/22

Vastly underrated rifles that suffer from the (ongoing) Turk curse. They're extremely well made, and most have new barrels. I bought mine as a hand-pick when they were $79. Mine seems to prefer 150-154 grain bullets, and shoots the Turkish surplus pretty well. Hand loaded with 150 grain bullets and...

Re: 1903 Springfield Griffin and Howe 28" target rifle

Thanks, shoot4fun. I've come to believe that this was built as a Wimbledon style "bull gun". I found this article about a Wimbledon "Bull Gun" made by Griffin and Howe for Ben Comfort, who won the 1935 Wimbledon match with it. Comfort's rifle was chambered in 300 H&H. and was built on a Remington mo...

Re: 1903 Springfield Griffin and Howe 28" target rifle

I heard back from Bob Beach, the now-retired historian for Griffin and Howe... "I regret that I have retired from doing the research and letters of provenance effective the end of 2018. There is a current G&H employee who intends to continue the service but it will take some time to rearrange his pr...

Re: New (to me) Ljungman

Don't get hung up on the stock disk "number" for bore condition. I have read many post from new owners that they praise the rifle because the stock disk was marked "1" and the other marks showing no wear. How long ago was that disk stamped? How many rounds have been fired through it since then? How...

Finally brought the Ljungman home and looked it over. Metal is in pretty good condition, Stock has a few dings and gouges. https://i.imgur.com/hx7pF4v.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/okjorbE.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/6xDGI3j.jpg?1 The bore looks pretty good, but the stock disc shows a "3" https://i.imgur....

Re: Vintage Military Semi Auto Rifle Silhoueete Match

Where in CA is this? We are fortunate to have at least a couple dozen regulars (plus stragglers) that support vintage-ONLY matches in Southern NV. We have two every month (one for bolt, one for semi-) that are 150-400 yards, and one every month (except summer) that is 200 - 900 meters. The shorter ...

Re: Acquired a 98/22

The weather warmed a bit and I made it to the range today to shoot the Czech 98/22. I always shoot in the middle of the day on weekdays, so even though we have over 300 members, I'm usually the only one on the property, one of the benefits of being retired. I used 175 grain copper jacketed bullets ...

Re: M1911 added to collection. (And pictures)

ive found that the chamber dimensions of the K31’s ar slightly larger than those of the 1911. I got a hornady Swiss K32 die set specifically for my K31’s. I also have two sets of RCBS Schmidt-Rubin 7.5x55 dies a friend gave me. Yesterday I test chambered a round of GP11 and one of my personal loads...

Re: Acquired a 98/22

Nice find, nrobertb.

The early Czech 98/22's had the "lange vezier" sight. I've always wanted one of those.

Post a range report when you can.

Grate shooting. Got to love the Jlungman.
We have a 300 meter silhouette match this Saturday. There will be no AR15's or 10's. Only old rifles.
Nice! Is it semi auto only?

Thanks, Guys. I was glad to get the Ljungman for Hakim prices. I have a couple of other Ljungmans that I got years ago. One of them was when I was on that trip where I visited you, Rob (2010?). I bought it for $500 from a guy in Albuquerque who had cleaned up at an estate sale. He had another one th...

New (to me) Ljungman

Last month I saw a listing for a Egyptian Hakim...only I noticed it was a Ljungman. https://hibid.com/lot/57243306/egyptian-hakim-7-9mm I went by my FFL today and got a few crppy pics of it before starting the 10 day cooling off period. Stock has a few dents and gouges, metal looks good. https://i.i...
