Re: Vis 35 Radom

Thanks, Vandle.

Unfortunately my state has a 10 day "cooling off" period, so it will be a few weeks before I get a chance to shoot it.

Vis 35 Radom

My son and I have been on the prowl for a decently priced Radom vis 35 and finally scored one. Can't find any import marks.

Re: I think I got a good deal on A Smith Corona

A few years ago I glommed a sporterized Smith Corona 03A3 with a 6 groove barrel. The rifle is in a sporter stock with a Redfield target sight and an intact 12-42 barrel.

Great set of Swedish Mausers, Stew.

I endorse Rob's comment regarding the difficulty in only buying one rifle.

Re: Swedish FM 23-36 trial rifle

I normally promise to post better pictures after I receive a rifle that I have won at an on-line auction, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do any better than those pictures saved from the old GB sales listing.

Re: Swedish FM 23-36 trial rifle

In checking FM23-36's on other forums, I found this rifle had apparently last been sold on Gunbroker in 2016. A member saved pictures of it from back then. https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?174900-Fm-23-36-Trial-Match-Rifle/page2&highlight=FM23-36 https://i.imgur.com/qfqZQ01.jpg https://i....
