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...

"A gateway jug." Yikes! We in the Midwest take water for granted. I see a rain barrel very rarely around here. A resourceful idea.

Re: Different front sight heights?

J&B weld should not cure to "rubbery" . The quick weld type should still set up 24 hours before being touched. The standard J&B becomes even harder but I let it set ,untouched, for 48 hours. I let the product run down over the sight blade a bit then flip it upside down,so it will hold better. I've u...

Re: Wz.29 rebuild questions.

Thanks for the post guys! I managed to source a polish made stock but am still missing the upper handguard. I did check out springfield sporter and ordered a frw odds and ends. Long and short I have German mag parts and a German bolt that has a polish acceptanc stamp. Everythig else is polish made....

Re: "Another" Colombian added to the collection!

Excellent find. Winchester, Fiocchi , et.al. have a 130 gr fmj .38 special load that is both accurate and has "mild" recoil. It duplicates the early Vietnam Era U.S. Airforce load.
