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: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

Well to find that rifle at a better price.. you should set up there as a dealer so you are in at set up and you kinda need to set through the whole show for walkins.. When you go in as a regular person, that rifle has been viewed many times by people who know better.. Yeah things have dried up.. I c...

Re: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

OK, I love Rock Island Auctions.. and have nothing but high respect for them.. But in that example the rifle ended at 8+k Here is one on Gunbroker that went a lot less and kinda went fishing for a bid.. And over the few years I have seen these in the 1500 range on gunbroker. Now the Rock island one ...

Re: Mosin m44 BB replica, nuts

I was trying to find this air gun rifle that looked like a modern rifle that shot pellets and as it did it ejected brass shells and it was expensive, can not find it.. But did come across a couple of over the top air guns.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1BsRtCjP8Q a couple of nice 1919s https://w...

Re: Mosin m44 BB replica, nuts

Kind of funny the price of a BB gun is the same as a real Mosin. A WZ 48 would be a better bet at $300. :lol: :roll: With real Russian markings it would have been nice to have next to the rack of real ones, lacking these its just an expensive toy. We all have our jelly spots that do not make sense ...

Re: Mosin m44 BB replica, nuts

Gletcher goes to the trouble to make the bayonet work, but are irresponsible in reproducing accurate Russian markings and produce a plastic stock with fake cleaning rod?? Go figure...

Re: Mosin m44 BB replica, nuts

That does look nice.. that has to eat through air cylinders fast.. The one site said they were limited to 200???.. that does not seem right, in the spirit of mass production and all... This is a bit gooberish, but it does show someone shooting the thing and the bayonet does seem pretty strong... htt...

Re: P38 under French control.

Got to thinking about this later, and another factor is I think there is alot of these still out there in the box, My suspicions that people purchased these as collectors pieces, never played with them and now still out there in great condition. I am amazed if you go on gunbroker how many are in the...

Re: P38 under French control.

Well, it is understandable... They were released later then the german ones... They were released in mass compared to the German war time pistols that came over in peoples duffle bags and much smaller batches. Many people cast a jaundiced eye toward them because they are not original. And of course ...
