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.

SOME COMMIE IRON

Hi Fellas, I was rootin around and dug up these old pictures. I haven't taken many since the Bucket crashed. A few kinda recent acquisitions and past projects. I've run across just a couple Sinobanians guns but as of late, SKSs have become scarce AND $pendy. Many got Bubbad up when they were cheap a...

Re: He said it was a Norinco...

Nice score. It's likely one of the Sinobanians that came ashore a few years back. I've got a few and that's where the stamps are located too, with "A, F, & H" letter prefixes from arsenal /26\. Back to your original inquiry, it's not unusual to run across SKSs with no importer stamp. Not common but ...

Re: BUBBA

I have a somewhat similar perspective. Recently I picked up 3 Bubbafized rifles, and built a couple more. A '70 Albanian SKS that the furniture was nicely redone, looked reblued too. Seller said it was "restored" but he got it that way. Looks great. $465 A 1916 Spanish 7mm carbine, light sanding & 5...

Re: FN49 Egyptian sniper rifle

That's a unique rig, totally legit, and super Boss.

I'd clone my Franken Farouk into one if I could. But it's not dovetail cut. PAX

Re: Winchester Garand

Thanks All, Great feed back, for the second time. In the last couple years, I've nosed around Garands and asked for some pointers before. The response is always constructive. I've known the owner for a decade, an 01 for 40 years, and is the only reason I'm even considering spending that much bank (t...

Winchester Garand

Hi Folks, I've been trying not to go down the M1 rabbit hole, because I missed the window of cheapness long ago. I really know very little about the platform, other than I should have at least one specimen. I've come up on an all matching unit (Winny stamped parts), in excellent condition, $1400. It...

Re: My pair of sporters

I would've traded one of my sport job .303s for a 7mm Mauser. I've got a 2A1 7.62X51 in one of those ATIs, an 8X32X50, with 5 round mag & bipod. Good shooter, accurate. PAX

Hi Fellas,

I got a lead on a cheap SKS in Romulus, MI if anybody's looking PM me. Was there on business recently and came up on a good deal, but no Kali ship. PAX

Re: Mosin values

That about sets the base for Cincinnati. They are creeping up these days. I've got a couple mismatched M44s I just listed in a local forum for a FTF, with a close to "I don't really want to sell" prices, to feel out the market. PAX
