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: Century buys SSporters

I just got an email from Century. Interesting: Parts seem to be organized in a hap hazard manner, not by rifle type/model like springfield was doing. Maybe Century will get their act together... :doh: :think: Century Arms Acquires Surplus Company Springfield Sporters Delray Beach, Fla. – (August 21,...

Re: Heads up on Yugo M57 pistols

These are the normal Yugo Tokarevs in original caliber. Expensive ammo. Not 9mm. Not the better batch with the Glock like trigger. Import mark is PW bill board on the side of the slide not on the frame grip. Apparently only one magazine and no mention of a holster. They have both C&R early ones and ...

Re: The State of Our Hobby

They found out real quick that shooting farther than 25 yards was a skill and not a video game. I am always surprised at some of the first time CC students that think you just shoot the pistol and and hit a large CMP rifle target at 25 feet. Most miss, too many movies... I agree, but we are getting...

Re: The State of Our Hobby

I see the 25-45ish group that collects military gear, knifes, bayonets, patches, uniforms, helmets --but not firearms. I see less hunters, unless they are young Menominee at the college. But high school in the city, few take off to go deer hunting. In the 1950s-1970s the entire class was almost empt...

Re: Japanese sling

Many moons ago the better reproduction Arisaka slings were made from old worn leather Swedish slings by a few guys and sold as reproductions. What you have is a Swedish Mauser 1896 sling redone as a faked Arisaka sling. The brass Button is wrong by a bit, and the buckle is close, but no cookies. Buc...

Thank you for the extra photo documentation. That is one nice Yugo rebuild :clap: :clap: :clap: One he// of a find, you used up a years worth of luck on that jewel.

Re: Type 30 Arisaka price check

You do not see to many hook safety type 30s intact in WI so they are kind of one people desire. At shows, a nice one like you mention go around at least for $550-650. If its excellent with rod, sling, and papers you can say about $700. Now all prices are regional. We had some local big time 1960s Ar...

Bolt match and has mum? No sling or cleaning rod. Has the stock been refinished and how good is the bore? Carbine or long rifle?
