Re: 1891 argentine carbine nose cap

I bought this 1891 Argentine Mauser carbine a few months ago. It's clean and numbers matching and shoots great. The nose cap on it looks nothing like any of the others I've seen online. All the others have the protective cap with the ears on either side of the front sight. The gun shop didn't know ...

Re: Pawnshop Predicament

As as pointed out, the Tula Ammo is pretty cheap. Surplus still floats around, too, though I haven't seen a dealer with it. lately. SG has some http://www.sgammo.com/product/surplus/440-round-spam-can-762x54r-russian-military-surplus-ammo-148-grain-fmj-lps-1985-mfg And if I was going to be getting ...

Re: Pawnshop Predicament

You can always go with a Swiss M-31.. and the 7.5x55 swiss ammo is not hard to get https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vme90gayUzc But if you want something that is just BTTW cool... Some of The m95s in Yugoslavia went through a conversion program to shoot regular 8mm (7.92x57mm) ammo.. and what I think...

Re: Pawnshop Predicament

The Orman Berthier is most likely in 8mm Lebel chambering, not 8x57 Mauser. And... the M95 Steyr is in 8x56R. Both of these are obsolete cartridges Obsolete... Oh heck that hurts I have been shooting them for year.. :) But just to pile on, both of those guns will require special clips to shoot them..

Re: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

I am really intrigued with this.. are there any records or extra details as to how unreliable??? Or how the ammo was determined to be Unreliable?? I just picked up my first MK III* and it is a 1941 Lithgow. Apart from surplus and rolling your own, any input on the best ammunition available for it. S...

Re: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

Hey MauserMadness. can you really be worrying about 303 ammo with that kind of a name??? :) Seriously, you have a chance to get some.. SOG (That is right in your neck of the woods to boot) has some 1940s British 303 right now... I picked up a few cases.. I have found they work good, they are Berdan ...

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

Many thanks for your insightes, but I would still have to consider these rifles from WW II because they were... It's nothing more than what the Israelis did to all their Mausers when they converted them to 7.62x51.. And the Israeli Mausers I have went through WW II..Perhaps the big thing for the guy...

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

SO If I am fully understanding you the rebuilds took M24s that were broken down to their components and then the 24/47s and 24/52s were more or less rebuilt from Scratch???

Thanks for the help guys. I was afraid y'all were going to say it was that

Oh heck, do not let it get you down, just get another 1891 carbine that is original and then get a 1891 long gun and you will have a start to a nice Argentine collection that you will never be able to complete..
