Re: 52 Izhevsk 91/30 single shot trainer

Has your single shot Izhevsk been confirmed as a speed rifle MT? I hadn't seen anything new concerning them. I'm interested in these rifles since I own a 1945 CK 91/30, in fact it's the one pictured in Alexander's books and on his website. Yes, Alex confirmed that is what mine is, I set him pics wh...

" This is initial bullet speed testing gun ("скоростная винтовка/карабин"). They were produced in long rifle and carbine config...

A new Range toy, BYF44 HT sniper

After years of sitting on the sidelines when it came to German snipers and realizing my best bet was to go reproduction I decided last year to pick up a reproduction SSR, and a LSR to shoot and enjoy. But I always wanted a High Turret sniper but never seemed to realize the dream, until now. Last Aug...

Re: What is the history of this 1891 rifles markings?

The rifle pics are of a Russian M91 that was used in the Balkins at some point, hence the defaced Czar's crest and the weird s/n font of the new S/N. The finn hangers where added buy someone stateside. The S/N on the side of the receiver was applied by the importer (pre dot matrix) since the ATF req...

Re: 1945 BSA N0.4 T Miller Tymes

Yes sir Ray, T's with the transit case are big $$ today, between $4500/$6500, and if it's a Long Branch they are even higher.
The good news is I bought this one at Y2K pricing.

Re: Anyone here have a Russin SVT40?

100_5069 (2).JPG I have a sniper version that i bought to fill out my Russian sniper collection. They are by no means a super accurate rifle, as the Russians found out, early stocks where prone to wrist failures ( latter ones and many refurbs got AVT stocks)and are a PITA to clean but are a fun gun...

Swiss Miss / ZFK55

After about 12 months of procrastination and a lot of encouragement from a good friend of mine I finally drop some coin last week on this beautiful numbers matching Swiss Miss. Big Brown dropped it off today and I am quite pleased with it. Looks like a lot more Ramen Noodles for lunch for a while :l...

Re: Reproduction K98k LSR

I take it it was an RC converted to a reproduction sniper which would be great as a shooter. So here is a newbee question. What does a reproduction K98k with I assume a repro scope, cost at a gun shop or show. About the sme as a Mosin reproduction? What is fair market value? Since the rifle is modi...

Reproduction K98k LSR

picked this up a few weeks ago, it's a reproduction 1945 bcd K98k LSR sniper. I had a buddy tip me off to this one and it was built buy
Charlie Romero who is pretty well known for producing some very nice reproduction K98 snipers.

M48 w/Zrac scope

Picked this one up late last week, It is one of the drilled and tapped M48's Century imported and sold back in 2008. It's numbers matching and has a beautiful bore. The previous owner picked up a Zrac scope set-up to put on it and packed it away. It still needs a good cleaning to get rid of the last...
