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: Help needed in saving an 1886/93 Lebel

I have no idea why one source has treads at the top and the other has treads at the bottom. I would go with Kelt. He is the expert. Can anyone actually show an actual screw from their rifle #34? It appears the screw shown in the French listings that I show as screen shots-both examples are incorrect...

Re: Help needed in saving an 1886/93 Lebel

If you can find someone that reads French, it appears they make reproduction screw sets for the rifles see: http://www.tircollection.com/t29391p25-customisation-d-un-lebel-86-93-de-braco I can not make heads or tails of this, I had only one semester of French about 100 years ago in HS :lol: :lol: Th...

Re: TT-33 crack

Toss the slide and save the rest as parts and get another $250 T 33. Romanians are inexpensive and at most gun shows. Aim has them for $219. At least it was not an original Russian or Hungarian. Time to replace the old dog. Aim has grade 2 Romanian T33s at $179. Still an inexpensive pistol that shoo...

Re: Second Time

I do not know where these people come from, but way to many place their firearms across the table instead of pointing down range (pistols or rifles), too many leave a firearm chambered when people go down range, do not empty the chamber or use chamber flags when people are down range, do not have sp...

Re: Help needed in saving an 1886/93 Lebel

Well at least it will be an interesting project? I am waiting to see what the experts say... Maybe, Mark can show his Lebel bolt body, bolt head, and the bolt head screw. He always helps out. Who has a Lebel? We need some photos :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Maybe Patrick on the gunboards forum post will help you find parts in France or come up with a schematic in french and he can put English names to the parts. My old GunParts catalogs have no French parts listed. I do not own a Lebel so I can not make actual part comparisons to my Berthiers. I got so...
