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: 9mm steyr brass

Unfortunately up here in canada does and brass can be a bit harder to come by. I will have to shop around for the dies and see what I can do but the brass at the moment is sitting around 40 for 100 without shipping or taxes. So figure about 60+ for the brass

Re: 9mm steyr brass

Starline makes 9mm Steyr brass. Graf's has it for $21 per hundred. I can pretty much guarantee you that it will be cheaper than converting free .223 range pickups unless you place zero value on your labor. This is especially true if you have to buy a reamer. Also, .223 brass has a rim diameter that...

9mm steyr brass

would it be smart or possible to convert .223 remington brass casings to 9mm steyr by cutting them down to 23mm's and possibly reaming out the brass to open up the inside diameter?

Is this a bad idea? Should i just purchase the 9mm steyr brass if i can find it?

Re: 7mm mauser for rolling block

how roomy are the throats on these guys? Mine headspaces perfectly fine but i can set the bullets out very far in the case and it still seats and the block shuts with no binding on the hammer. Were these built with open chamber throats like that or is that just normal throat wear over the last hund...

Re: 91/38 accuracy issue

How is the muzzle crown? The barrel crown seems to be perfectly fine, the rifle itself i believe is unrefurbished and was barely ever used in its service life since the barrel is nearly mirror bright, not bad for a 1941 91/38. I could always see if i can find some prvi 156gr bullets so the weight w...

Very fair price. A rare pistol in it's condition.
And that is in Canadian dollars. So that would be about 450.00 or so American dollars.

Is the Chilean contract particularly rare?

Bore is a mystery since I haven't slugged it but a .264 bullet hardly enters the muzzle. It isn't counterbored and I'm using hornady. 264 140gr sst's

Chilean Steyr 1911 pistol

There is a Steyr 1911 (1912) pistol for sale that was made for the Chilean contract in the early 20th century. The seller is asking 650.00 Canadian for it. Is that a fair price to ask or is that way out of the market realm?

91/38 accuracy issue

I am having some issues getting my 91/38 carbine to print on paper at 100m. I am using a 140gr hornady sst bullet over 30 grains of H335. Should i be aiming wicked low at 100m since the sights are calibrated for 160gr bullets? I'm puzzled with the sights since they are fixed at 300m battle range i b...

french 1892 date.

If an 1892 revolver has a serial number G prefix, what time frame was it made? No barrel date from the owner as of yet

Re: Carcano 91/38

alright, it matches the date on the receiver and also matches the serial number as well. Everything on the rifle appears to be matched,

Carcano 91/38

I have an italian 91/38 carbine in 6.5x52mm. Looks to be in very good condition. Barrel looks mint and bolt matches the receiver. There is what appears to be an arsenal stamp on the stock. Is the stamp a refurbishment stamp or is it an original factory stamp that was put on when the rifle was manufa...
