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: Yugo M48 Series?

I've got two M24/47's one of which you can make out the ghosting of the Fabrique Nationale d'armes de Guerre stamp on the siderail. So I assume that this one is from the original batch made in Belgium between 1926 - 1928.

Yugo M48 Series?

We (Wife and I) put a numbers matching M48 on layaway, can one tell the series M48, 48A, etc by the serial number or is it only possible by the traits?

This rifle has a K50816 SN, sorry no pictures, didn't think to snap any before it was boxed up and stored away.

Re: Opioid problem

Don't know if it's the Lortab or the Amoxicillin or a combination of both, but I wake up soaking wet from sweating every day and night since starting them. Soaked enough that I need to use a towel to dry off, turn my pillow over, and if worn shed the shirt I'm wearing before I can go back to bed.

Re: Opioid problem

True they should ask, but they informed me i was getting a scipt for pain meds. I did state there is a gremlin with a hot poker playing pokie with my ear drum all friggin nigh...

Re: Opioid problem

I had knee surgery and afterwards got a blood clot in my leg (and that friggen' hurts!) and they gave me 5mg of Hydrophone mixed w/ 250mg of Acetaminophen and it didn't even come close to touching the pain. So go back and they wouldn't give me anything else other than to take 600 mg of IBprofen wit...

7.62x38 Brass

Is there a market for 7.62X38 Nagant brass? I don't reload and I have approximately 90-100 once fired Fiocchi brass in the original boxes. Figured I'd ask before I drop the brass in the recycling can on my next range trip.

Re: Cold enuff for you?

We had the opposite problem. I was thinking of the jumpers who'd drop to lower altitude & warmer temps quite fast, not the drop crew who stayed up there! :shock: We had sealed environments in PR-7s & to a lesser extent PR-9's, so no wind, but the "bubble blown" canopy was a greenhouse with a magnif...

Re: Spurs

Never knew there was so many variations and styles of spurs. I've always looked upon them as tools of the trade. Looking at these examples I can see how wrong and ignorant I was. Some of them are down right pieces of art, yet still utilitarian which is what I can't wrap my little brain around.

Re: Finn 1891 rifle

I use transmission fluid on my bolts. After cleaning I give them a good oiling with it for storage purposes, the next time I take them out shooting, the bolts are as smooth as silk.

Re: Cold enuff for you?

When we were conducting HALO drops out of Pinal Air Park, it was around -40 F at 18,000-20,000 feet when we dropped the ramp and made our drops. Yeah, but you weren't "up there" very long, but I can see windchill being a bit much for those 10~12 seconds. :lol: Ramp froze open on the first drop, we ...

Re: Different stock length on 91/30s.

I also have one that is slightly shorter, by about 1/2 inch, mine is a 1942 Izhevsk M91/30 built on a 1941 reciever I beleive. From what I can tell the buttstock is slightly shorter making all the hardware (Barrel bands, barrel band springs, nose cap, sling escutcheons) sit about 1/2 inch lower comp...

The coldest temps I've experienced sub 0 F, Coldest I've been/felt USAF Combat Survival School S-V80-A. I've never felt colder than I did during survial school, I shook the entire 6 days we were in the field portion of it. Snow was about 2 - 3 feet deep in areas, and no matter what I did I couldn't ...
