Re: 1891 argentine carbine nose cap

I too like the look of those handy make over rifle to carbine Argis. Always look at the rear sight. The true carbine rear sight base is way shorter. More like half the size of the rifle rear sight base.

Thanks for the great picture review. All fine. I especially liked the Mitchel info. The Israeli Mausers are still my favorite.

Re: Galil Clone

There were some issues among those IDF who were using the Galil with the weight/balance. Too spoiled by the Usi?

Re: In praise of the S&W Model 10

Top condition compared to most you see now a-days . Around here you see those that are that nice going for about $400 or more. Great find.

Re: 1907 Izhevsk Dragoon

Finn stamped, yet they kept it original. Must have been quite accurate, as it was, when acquired. Looks like maybe a Finnish sling. All in all a great, collectable. Thanks for the pics.

Re: 1917 PTG M91 Japanese trainer

That's smart. If the extractor IS being forced over the rim, that extractor will eventually bend out of shape. Did you find 7.62x54r dummy rounds somewhere or did you make them?
