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.

M41 restoration

An elderly gunsmith buddy gave me a complete m41 action recently with the stock - cut off just above the lower band. Couldn't resist the challenge to restore it. Fond a nice looking barrel last week on eBay for $39 shipped. Springfield Sporters had the wood stock section I needed for $9. They also p...

Re: Why would anyone want an Enfield

My BSA 1916 arrived as a barreled action with the clip charger removed. A walnut DP stock set from Springfield Sporters featuring "early" metal made for an easy restoration...,except for replacing that darn clip charging guide. Springfield Sporters sent me one still attached to the back half of a de...

Re: P14 project done

Love to see these old rifles restored. I also restored an Eddystone 2 years ago with my gunsmith buddy's help. Unfortunately mine had about 3" of the muzzle whacked-I guess to remove those ugly sight guards. My buddy fabricated a bored out "false muzzle" from a worn out m1917 barrel and threaded it ...

Yugoslav 1899c restoration

So what do you do when you need an 1899c to fill a hole in your Yugoslav collection but you can't find one in good condition at a decent price? Restore one on a complete action purchased on GunBroker for $100. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170830/83314fbc2dff23e3715e160e36170650.jpg Hmm...small...

Venezuelan Carbine Restoration

These restorations are beginning to be habit forming. Picked up a nice Venezuelan Carbine barreled action off GunBroker for $129 shipped. All the metal parts down to the handguard clip and tiny screws were there. Had the buttstock and stock tip left from the vz98/22 stock I used to restore the Belgi...

1908 Brazilian Rifle Matching

At the risk of hijacking the thread - an update on mine: "I have a matching action on the way. A buddy had a nice take off barrel and stock. Hoping to assemble a nice shooter" Update-here is the one I finished assembling last week. Cleaning rod and repro sling from SARCO and bayo with matching scabb...

I also built an AR 43 shooter using a non RC action, a pristine post war Czech barrel and some RC parts. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170704/498507f2452f8353f432ed833e8d9cdb.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170704/e2e68bc521ba93a851c7729abab06f91.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2017...

Re: 1908 Brazilian Rifle Matching

It is also one of the late 2nd production run rifles made at Mauser Oberndorf rather than DWM Berlin. Little less common.

I have a matching action on the way. A buddy had a nice take off barrel and stock. Hoping to assemble a nice shooter.

Marty
