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: First Carbine!

No worse than a .357 magnum, and not far behind a 300 blackout. Within 75yd I'm pretty comfortable with it. The tag I'd use it for is Black Hills Whitetail (south dakota), which is mostly short-range shots anyway.

Sure! I am clueless on bayonets.

First Carbine!

I finally got a carbine! I've been keeping an eye out for them for a few years now and it finally lined up that I found one locally for a decent price. Got the rifle and bayonet for $1050 which I think is fair. I've seen rifles in worse condition go for $1200-1400 locally (worn out blue sky imports ...

Re: M1903 Unertl Range day

First round is pushing oil or whatever phenomena causes clean-bore POI change-- it's always high, then the other 4 rounds (hand loads) are in about 3/4" group.

The other is 20 shots of surplus ammo, 18 of which land within 3".

Here's 5 rounds at 420yd on steel.

Re: M1903 Unertl Range day

Chuck Moline ("ChuckinDenver" on some boards, not sure if he's on this one) did the mounts. I did all of the stock/handgaurd work. A previous owner put the rifle in a new CMP C stock set, but the stock was very dry and not fitted well. Anyway, I shot it before I took it apart, but when I did take it...

M1903 Unertl Range day

I was able to get out early this afternoon, before we got about 5 inches of snow and knock the dust off of the M1903. 1918 SA receiver, 1942 4-groove SA rebarrel. Honestly very surprising accuracy from this rifle with hand-loads, much better than I ever expected. 0.6-0.8 MOA is common (first round a...

Re: Milsurp collector age

I started when I was 13 or 14, 27 now. Honestly the rash of WWII era video games pushed it for me. The original Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, etc... It got me into military history and it just happened that at the same time most of the rifles in those games could be had pretty cheap. It used to be t...

My MAS 36

Figured I'd share my MAS 36. From what I was able to look up, this one appears to have been made in 1944 after the re-occupation of France. If anyone has any information regarding how that took place I'd appreciate it. Seems like a pretty interesting time in history. The stock has a 1958 stamp in it...

dot 1944 Kriegsmodell Yugo capture?

I'm hankering to see the for-sale section of this site, so I figured I'd share some of my collection and boost the post count a little. This is a rifle I've had for several years now. When I bought it I thought it was a Russian Capture (paid $275, I believe in like 2008 at a local gun show). It was ...

Forum Classifieds section

Is there still a classified section on this forum? I've been a follower/memeber since probably 2004 or so, but recently when the site went down I lost my account info (used to be "Ledzep") and just started a brand new account. I'm thinking maybe there's a limit like I have to have 100 posts or somet...

Re: My first SMLE, 1945 Lithgow

Thanks! I don't have recoil plates on this one. I've only put 10 rounds of HXP through it and doubt I'll be shooting it before next spring/summer. Is it something I can find and install myself? I spent a year building precision custom rifles and have access to a machine shop where I currently work, ...

My first SMLE, 1945 Lithgow

I picked this up a couple weeks back at the local fun store for $390. JJCo import 1945 Lithgow. Metal is all matching but the wood is SLAZ 42 and SLAZ43 marked. Everything is either MA or OA marked, so I believe it's all Aussie. From what I could find, the JJCo stuff is rebuilt with new-old-stock pa...
