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: Is this an original sling for K98k

I am unsure, it could be Austrian post war or if it has stitching along the edges a Norwegian made sling, but the ones I see do not have a cross hatched pattern. The frosh looks darker than the sling leather if that is a fact? I thinkest :shifty: it's a miss match on those two items! The steel butto...

Re: w625a Trainer Questions

Kind of a hard find; a few years ago the last on I saw had a $800 price tag on it-- way too much for a .22. You got a rather nice find unless you paid top buck say $1000. A few collect these items and they are high rollers. Now you need this reference book: Training Rifles of Third Reich Germany Har...

Re: 7.62x54r surplus price check

Re: 7.62x54r surplus price check

These are the tins our Fleet & Farm store got and people returned them about ten years ago because it was bad ammo at $45 a tin of 300 rounds. I dug one of my old stock tins out for photos. The oxidized tin( unpainted) measures 10 3/4 "x 6 1/4" with a depth of 3 1/2'. It contains 300 rounds in rotte...

Re: 7.62x54r surplus price check

At our Fond du Lac gun show on Sat 19 jan 2019 a guy had 6 tins of Albanian 440 round sealed green tins at $125 a tin, there was one guy that had a silver tin of Bulgarian Russian Mosin ammo at 80 bucks, but it was a smaller tin and looked nasty on the outside maybe 300 rounds in the tin??

Re: What series is this Type 99 Short Rifle?

If the button is square and it should push in easy, and is spring loaded, the rod will just fall out. The cleaning rod is held in by the button latch that hooks onto a notch on the rod. The Type 99 rod does not screw into the stock, rather it just falls down in. Use a coat hanger wire and see if tha...

Re: What series is this Type 99 Short Rifle?

As for the rod it should be a 24 inch cleaning rod not the late war short rod. I assume the stock is original to the rifle? If the stock was switched it could use the short rod. most likely the button is not releasing due to dirt or rust on that rifle. it should be square. YOU have to push down on t...
