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: Recover old board posts?

All the members old, new and future really appreciate any efforts by anyone to help regain posts and historical knowledge. Some say that social media will replace "forums", well for general chit chat maybe, for perhaps discussion perhaps but look at it in the long run; if we don't find a way to pres...

Re: Vz 24 with potential German markings.

The Sling does not look correct. Neither do the Waffenampts on the rifle. I think someone bought some stamps from Poland. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk Yea they don't look right to me but there's so many small details I wanted to make sure. I paid the normal vz24 price thankfully because it is...

Re: Vz 24 with potential German markings.

I've got a vz. 24 with a k-98 stock and bolt. And it has Waffenamp stamp marks in a couple spots. When the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia they seized Brno and all its inventory. Its not unusual to find vz. 24s that were pressed into service. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/5218e93451db937...

Re: Persian VZ 24

I believe the their is some misleading/erroneous information posted at least for the for the first contract models the 98/29. They were the cream of the crop and prime dollars were paid for premier craftsmanship which can be verified by everyone of who have them. You can't get any dreamier that them...

Re: Serial number and barrel date

I have a HRA Garand where the receiver is made in Feb 1954 (coming up on it's 64th birthday). but the barrel, also made by HRA, is stamped /-54. which I'm figuring it's 7-54 (july 1954), the 7 wasn't a solid strike. could be a lot of wartime barrel were made before the receivers, but that doesn't h...

Re: CIA u fix em CZ70

Hello, my first post on the new forum. Does anybody have any information on the CIA u fix em CZ70? I let my C&R expire so I can't even see the price. Send me a PM if you are not comfortable posting the price. I was thinking if these were a deal I may get 2 or 3. I'm on vacation. I also let my C&R e...

Re: CZ 24

With wood grips I'd consider it, especially since mine cost more 100 %, 10 yrs ago.

Condition would be my prime concern. At that price it needs a good eye or you bumped into a good deal.

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...
