Re: The 2020 "Make Surplus Rifles Great Again" Challenge

]I'll play! Here's an 1894 Norwegian Krag in 6.5X55 that I picked up several years ago. Finding one of these with a bore that's not a cheese grater is a real challenge, as unlike the Swedish Mausers, these shot a lot of corrosive ammo during the occupation of Norway in WWII. Sweet shooting rifle in ...

Re: 5 carbines just listed, sold ASAP?????

72 USMC: Did you miss something? Yep... the last 15 years of M1 carbine sales. $950 is a good price these days. These carbines are fun to shoot. Like you, I bought all 3 of mine (Underwood, Inland, and NPM) from the CMP back when they were less than $500 a pop for Service Grade or better. Those days...

Re: M44 Mosin crazy prices???

I remember $25 M1 carbines that we described as overpriced, and $400 RC K98 Mausers. I was one of the fools that paid $425 for a service grade M1 CMP carbine a few years ago. I bought overpriced K31 Swiss rifles, and a truckload of overpriced GP11 ammo too. I'm pretty sure I have a ton of overpriced...

Re: Savage 1907.

Spoiler: (Mae has no problem racking the slide) :D OK, now I feel really inadequate. However, perhaps I just have a pistol that needs some gunsmithing, because unless Mae removed all the springs in my 1907, she wouldn't be doing that quite so easily. The greatest effort is in getting the slide to m...

Re: Savage 1907.

I own one, and it's a cool little pistol. No screws, and complete disassembly with no tools. However, you need a dairyman's handshake to cock the damned thing. Check out the 1920s ads where Savage marketed the pistol to women. If I was in charge of Savage, I'd have sent this one back to the engineer...

Re: Auto Ordinance M1 Carbine

I have one of the early-70s Iver Johnson stainless steel carbines (Iver Johnson M1 SS), and while not on a par with my 3 USGI models (Inland, NPM, and Underwood), it can be had for less than half the price of either a USGI shooter or any of the present commercial knock-offs, and it's a great shooter...

Re: Jumped on the bandwagon..bought a 81 Beretta

Recoil is nil in the 32 auto model 81. However, the slide would not be easy (in my opinion) for anyone with severe arthritis. The easiest slide to rack I've ever encountered is the Star model B in 9 mm. It's a full-sized pistol, single action. Basically it's a 1911 without the grip safety and in 9mm...

Re: New (to me) Ljungman

Yes, the Ljungman does have a nasty bite, as well as a bark from the muzzle brake.

Rob: if yours has an adjustable gas valve, is it one that was added later? I've not seen one, and mine (1945 AG42b) is not adjustable.
