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: Czech VZ54/91

Saw your other post, regarding the 54 model, guess I need to do some research.

Re: Czech VZ54/91

I've searched and searched. I see many similarities with the this sample and the Romanian I believe SVD knockoff. I had of of those and it definitely wasn't sniper grade. Other than my initial searches couldn't find an example similar to yours, I don't doubt the 54 version might have existed, just h...

Re: Vz52's

are we talking about the same 52, or Keiths talking pistol and OldGrouchy talking about the rifle? Inquiring minds are confused. I haven't been following the dealers much in the last few years, but when my collection was pretty much complete and I was broke, the major supply had dwindled to nill. If...

Re: 98/22's

I've been involved with Czech rifles, pistols and weaponory for a few decades. Here is my take on the 92/22. They were built without for profit and without an iron foot on their throat. Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic has it seems been more concerned with the craftsmanship versus who the order was for...

Re: 98/22's

I had been trying to sell a 98/22 on another website that has an active classified area, and there doesn't seem to be any interest. Is there something wrong with the 98/22's that would make them hard to sell? Just curious. I airways thought they were good rifles. I originally bought a few to sporte...

Re: Enfield Sighting Procedures

I'm not sure, but it "could" be due to Photobucket" having new procedures and upping the ante in fees to support online forums. If the old article did have the "pics" hosted from Photobucket your symptoms seem right on, as I recognize the error message. For the time being it seems we seem to be host...

Re: Arctic K98k Czech with Winter Trigger guard

personal feeling, subject to proof. In the German retreat in Czechoslovakia, France and all else. I don't believe the destroyed factories etc.. However I do sincerely believe they destroyed (if they had the means, manpower and moral) to destroy anything that would help the allies to catch them in th...

Re: Want VZ 23 Information

At face value Steve I can't see anything, but I don't know if anything had been replaced/altered here or abroad. My 23 is serial number 833. I'm not an an authoritarian, but if meets all spec's of a 23 and other than the "perhaps" doubtful front sight (not totally sure), with what you said about the...

Re: Want VZ 23 Information

KevinofBorg gave some good insights, but here are some more. Trivia: A "true" VZ23 is a rare rare bird. Many were modified into the first VZ 24's. Others fixed up to be compatible with 24's (e.g. Barrel length and stock config). I have an "almost" true, but the barrel is a VZ24. Other than the acce...

Re: Enfield 2A1 - "Better Steel" - Fact or Fiction ?

I think this still fits in the topics title, maybe not implied intent. I've done a lot of work with metals, heat treating, hardening along with normal welding and brazing etc. Am knowledgeable of spot treating pitfalls in that unless the metal not spot treated is needed to be structurally "strong" i...
