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

Good Luck at the show, is this the Lakeland gun and knife show usually at the convention center? I went to it several years ago and found some nice stuff, one visit I purchased 3 1911s from a guy and once found a IHC/SA gap letter in original condition for 700.00. I stopped going as it was just to c...

Re: RC mauser laminate and Mosin shellac finish

Thanks for the post, I have a Russian M44 that is as new with the flaking finish you describe. I will give it a try. I cringe to think what I destroyed many years ago when getting M1s from cmp with oily stocks that I cleaned . I know I should probably do some jail time for actions. LOL

Re: value and interest of 49/56

Thanks for all the great info guys. The info about the accessories was interesting and helpful to me. I have sold the one I have for sale at 550 shipped . There were no takers at 650 and when dropped to 550 it sold right away with seconds called. I kept one for my collection and have enjoyed shootin...

Re: Feels Good

I know how you feel, after looking down the barrel of Hurricane Irma and the rifles that did not fit in the safes , I decided it was time to thin the herd. I sold about a dozen also and nearly paid cash for my new/used truck.

value and interest of 49/56

What are thoughts on the 49/56 rifle? I have one for sale and it seems to have no interest at all. It is also listed on cmp and has had a lot of views . I am not up on surplus rifles only US rifles but have fired this one and its a great shooter. I thought 650 shipped was a fair price from checking ...

Re: Case sticking in the chamber

Thanks for the good info, I disassembled the bolt on the Finnish rifle last night . It was pretty dirty inside with dried cosmo. I smoothed the surfaces somewhat and will test fire again soon. This may have been the problem rather than the ammo as I suspected. The bolt feels smoother but tighter, no...
