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...

Re: Need Help/Advice on a 1903 build.

Finding a receiver seems pretty tuff these days , a reasonable priced one anyway. I have a Santa Fe 03A3 with all USGI parts less receiver. I have had my eye out but not ready to pay 300 for one. I think thats sound advice to find a sporter.
