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: gun shop scores? bucket items? (not trash can)

My best score must be this Lee-Enfield No. 7 Mk 1, .22 trainer, made in 1948 by BSA for the Royal Air Force. It was a private sale for a ridiculous low price; even though the original mag was missing and it was covered in surface rust, it turned out very fine after a bit of TLC and elbow grease.

Re: Didn't post much last couple of months but.....

Hey do you guys have a gunbroker or armlist that you can trade with in a national setting.. or are most transactions dealer to buyer via shows and stores???

Re: Didn't post much last couple of months but.....

I paid 350 euro/395 dollar for mine, came with an original sling and one 20-piece box of factory ammo. There's a gunshop here that has one for sale in .300 savage, he wants 250 euro/280 dollar for it (but then again: factory .300 savage costs here about double of 7mm08 factory ammo). I've seen recha...

Re: Swiss 1911 vs. K31

I have a 1911, a K11 and a K31. Always shoot GP11 with all 3 of them, no problems whatsoever.

On the 1911-length: put my 1911 and 91/30 next to eachother: 1911 is about 3,5 inch (8,5 centimetres) longer than a 91/30.

So, how does the new one shoot?
Shoots excellent, just a bit high @ 100 metres but I knew that in advance.
Already ordered a higher front sight to make aiming a bit easier and then I'm completely good to go 8-)

Re: Any Friends In Germany?

I live in Belgium but out of experience I know not every german seller is willing to send ammunition components to other EU-countries, let alone the US. Second problem in Belgium is that it is forbidden for belgian civilians to ship ammunition components; it's only allowed if you're a company. Last ...
