Re: 1917 Eddy Stone

I've got a 1903A4 that some yaahoo sporterized. They did a nice job, however, and I was able to glom it for a great price, given its heritage. https://i.imgur.com/YJpy2B2.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vHK6w2h.jpg https://i.imgur.com/uZvarzD.jpg I shot it fairly recently with some Federal Power Shok 150 gr...

Re: 1917 Eddy Stone

I found an example of a group I shot with a sported SC 03A3 more recently using the 150 gr Federal Power Shoks... http://i.imgur.com/4FDvNqE.jpg I shot 6 rounds of the 150 gr Powershock@ 100 yards. I pulled the #3 shot, but the rifle groups really well with the Redfield sight and the Power Shoks. Th...

Re: 1917 Eddy Stone

Back in the day I used to be able to get Federal Power Shok 30.06 ammunition pretty cheaply and always found it to be very accurate in my surplus rifles. Since you mentioned hunting, I would try both the 150 gr and the 180 gr versions of Power Shok. Edit: I found some old pictures (around 10 years o...

Re: The FN Venezuelan Mauser

I've got a thing for contract South American rifles and that is a nice one.

That is a nice group. I'm always on the look out for a Venezuelan 24/30 and it's big brother, the 24/30 target model.

Re: Swedish rifle pics...

I've got several FSR M96's, including two with Hellqvist rear sights. I haven't seen much about the Hellqvist. https://i.imgur.com/2jPcHGM.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/i97iDbu.jpg?2 https://i.imgur.com/7nhnGaR.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/RJkCC1b.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/mDmcZTT.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com...

Swedish rifle pics...

I was rummaging around my safe and had to move my Swedish rifles out to get something at the back. Decided to take a few pictures...I invite all to join in with their own pics.

These are my M38's...two Huskys and three Gustafs.

He's in his right mind as the old saying goes. :)

Re: Smith and Wesson model 52-2

The DROS system finally wheezed back to life and I was able to pick up my 52. I agree with the people who say it looks better with the wood grips. It shoots .38 special mid-range wadcutters. Reputed to be extremely accurate. I'll post a range report when able. https://i.imgur.com/vlqOZK5.jpg?1 https...

Single or double stack? Nice lines/profile.
Well...it uses a 5 round magazine, so definitely single stack.

Re: Finnish M24? Update: Chatellerault receiver

Thanks, 72usmc!

I ran a brush down the bore and this popped out the muzzle. Anyone ever seen anything like this in their Finn?

Re: Finnish M24? Update: Chatellerault receiver

When I was removing the barrel bands I noted that there were small (very small) wood screws screwed into the stock to act as a block to removing the barrel bands. Never seen that before on any of my Finns.

Also noted that the receiver is an antique and a Chatellerault

Re: Finnish M24?

I finally got my M24 home and took a few pictures. It is an 1894 receiver and does have the B-S barrel. The metal and wood are in pretty good shape and the bore has not been counter-bored... https://i.imgur.com/P2gM3Si.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/DAqdJIg.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/oUmGWNJ.jpg?1 https:/...
