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: Eddystone fixer upper

Not surprised to read about the keyholeing. For some reason these rifles are bored/rifled on the loose side. A long bullet with a flat base can "pick up the slack", so to speak. I have had the best results with Federal 220 gr. s.p. in the blue box.

Re: Israeli K98

The NATO loadings with 145 gr. to 150 gr. Bullets have been the most accurate In the three Israelis that I shoot. The best was the 150 gr. sp. I.M.I. rounds in the blue and white box, but they have been gone for some time, I believe. Great fun shooting these rifles.

Re: Turk Source

Typically I see three or four Turks at the gun shows in my area. Mostly m38, but other varieties as well. If you invest in a foster field gauge, in 8mm, you can check head space before you buy. Buy the best bore condition you find and be prepared for how accurate they can be. I got my field gauge fr...

Re: How to make Splice repairs

This seems to be a trouble area for many rifles. Bolt action Mausers ,especially and many others. What a great result.

Re: Springfield M1903 what do I have here?

Usually $500 to $600 in my area, shows and local gun shops. Shellacking may lower that a bit, but not too much.

Re: Remington model 700

Very cool set-up. Could you post info about, the barrel length,( looks to be about 21" ), the twist rate, and what bullet weight gave the best accuracy. Thanks.

I forgot to consider that some states charge for instant checks. Minnesota is free for all checks. Not sure about Ohio.

Re: Is it worth it?

Welcome Kyle. I feel most, here, would say yes. Let me take the other side for a minute and say that if I was in Ohio I could find more treasures "face to face" then I could hope to afford. Are you close to Oxford? Family Firearms and Finishes is there. Huge and frequent gun shows and many gun shops...

Re: Swedish m96/38 pawnshop sporter

Very nice carbine! Any Chance that the rifle was once a 94 Carbine? The discolored area in the original rear sight location looks too short for the m38 rear sight base.
