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: Greek military rifles

Great collection. I too like your sported version best. Saw a long rifle type at last month's gun show. It was obviously not in the 6.5 caliber any more. Looked to be 7mm. Folks had it at the table next to us and will try to sell it online.

Re: Something to think about

As a shooter first and a collector second I agree with this entire thread. Good points all.

This came up just by a simple google search for ‘1893 mauser schematic’
That's a large ring schematic. '93 is small ring, almost no part exchange. The nomenclature,however, is almost identical.

Re: K-31 Price Check

Insane that these $79 Dunhams specials on Black Friday from about 12 -15 years ago are now going at $475-650 that is because they are not importing K31, so what is here is all there is. as they become more popular demand goes up, and with a limited supply on the secondary market it's natural that t...

Re: NEW Mosin value check.

Saw one for sale at this last weekends gun show. He started at $1000 and had it lowered down to $700 by Sunday. It was quite nice with a correct cleaning rod. I doubt he'll get that much for it , in this area. He's getting closer though.

Re: 8mm Carcano

If I had one, I would start with the Federal, blue box , 170 gr soft points. Velocity is 2360 fps. It is a very mild load. More accurate then the Remington counter-part. Check the spent case for signs of excess pressure. Then proceed on to other loads.

Re: FR8 QUESTION

Great answer Smokey. Especially in regards to blanket statements about military rifle consistency. OLDGUNNER, the FR8 rifles started life as Spanish Military M 43s . They were very close to K98s in length and appearance. To make the conversion the 8MM Mauser barrels were removed and replaced with sh...

Re: GEW 88 carbine rear sight?

Looks more like an Argentina model 1891 carbine rear sight. Libertytreecollectors has them for sale and it looks just like it. Needs the correct base and lock-down screw. No. Disregard I SAW ONE IDENTICAL TO YOURS AT A COLLECTORS SHOW TODAY. He had it marked as a GEW88 sight as you thought and he ha...
