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: 7.62x54r surplus price check

. Be sure its not Bulgarian, packages inside some tins are rotten paper and bullets can be pulled out by hand, with moisture clumped powder. But I got my Bulgarian for the bullet tips at 5 cents per round. Is this an issue with alot of Bulgarian tins??.. Is the issue that moisture got in them and r...

Re: 7.62x54r surplus price check

That is less than 125 a can (considering you are getting extras) at a recent gun show saw people wanting 170 or so a can.. I remember not long ago some large ammo supplier selling cans in the 120 range (less shipping).. I would be tempted to get at that price.. It may be a tad low, but closer to the...

Re: Lakeland Fl Gun show Jan 19th - 20th

I have to agree with indy1919a4, went on Sunday. With 2 halls there was more room between the rows. A lot of older guns, found a nice M1916 Spanish Mauser. No charge for parking, $12 to get in. You really are right, and not only alot of older guns, by alot of variety of guns.. Civil war to WW II......

Re: 1939 Sauer and Suhl serial numbers?

Pistols? Some good info on a number of pistols here. Not much on the 38H, though. Also, a fair amount of info on 1913-1930 models. I have a 1919 in 7.65 browning/.32 acp. https://unblinkingeye.com/Guns/Sauer38/sauer38.html Hey thanks for that 38H link... It is a shame that that gun did not get the ...

Re: Lakeland Fl Gun show Jan 19th - 20th

It is the same. They moved it to the the Fun & Sun place.. I think this is the second time there at the new location. last time at Fun & Sun it was real crowded because they only used one hanger, this time it was 2.. Hay to be honest towards the middle of the show it was still getting a tad crowded,...

But darn it over the past few years good ones with lots of older guns are harder and harder to come by. So In Lakeland Florida this weekend th...

Re: Carcano bayonet channel

forgot to add that I remember seeing a Carcano at a show (Tulsa???) several years ago and the bayonet grove was filled, I swear I do not remember anything about the gun, caliber, etc. I had assumed it was more common than what it may be..

Re: Carcano bayonet channel

That is to make room for the Folding Bayonet.. A very nice accessory.. The Bayonet was discontinued because it was very expensive to make.. So they did fill in the wood groove like the French did with their Berthiers when the got rid of the long removable "cleaning" rod/stacking rod
