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.

Picked up a well worn 1940 Tikka M91 recently for a reasonable $250 shipped. Beautiful bore and it shoot very well. It was missing the cleaning rod and it seemed prices in the U.S. start around $50 shipped. Found one on eBay in Finland for $35 shipped. Never purchased parts from there but was pleasa...

Re: 24th series Kokura Type 38

looks like a gorgeous stock and seems to shoot very well. Its a shame that the mum is gone. even one with the circle stamps is preferable to that botch job. At least in my opinion. What loads were you shooting out of it? factory or handloads? I’m shooting Speer 140 gr spitzers over 31 gr of 4064 Se...

Re: Garage Sale Kar98k

My garage sale deal a few years ago was a Steyr Gew88/05. Guy wanted to know in what caliber it was chambered. It was still crammed full of cosmoline and I didn’t have a cleaning rod to clean the bore and check the rifling so I declined his $200 offer. He was persistent so I wound up paying $125. On...

Re: VZ24 in 7mm

VZ24JC - lightened version - rather uncommon in that nice condition.

Added another SA large ring Peruvian 1909

Picked this one up on GunBroker for $210 shipped. Advertised as an Argentine 1909 with bad headspace. Could see it had a Lange Vizier so I knew what it was. Arsenal reconditioned Peruvian 1909. Formed 7.65x55 brass from 30-06 surplus to solve the headspace issue. Good shooter. Peruvian Pig sticker p...

Re: Chilean m1912 Steyr

My 1909 Argentine also shoots quite well. Unfortunately the previous owner rechambered it to 7.65x63. It is all matching[emoji20]. Yes these SA long rifles are superb shooters. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/16511909bfca5bc19470d511a854519b.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/57...

Chilean m1912 Steyr

I restored a Brazilian m1908 back in the summer with a $100 matching action from GunBroker as the basis. This rifle shot like a dream and I fell in love with the 7x57 cartridge. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/73cc828b467d34dc087f766f1d63bd7e.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/9...

Re: Stoked! M24/52c.

One of my most accurate rifles is an m24/52c. This 100 yd target from a local match has 5 of the 10 shots in one ragged hole 7 o'clock in the 10 ring.
