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: So many German rifles lets make lamps out of them

So I wonder how many actually have a rifle/lamp made out of an old surplus rifle from the 1950s to show us? I have seen a Arisaka and Carcano rifles use to make a round table lamps. Back in the day both Italian & Japanese rifles were junk. In the 1960s, a girlfriends dad had a floor lamp made from a...

Re: So many German rifles lets make lamps out of them

Well Cabelas gun stores stated to offer the non weathered version and had them at $200 in the BB gun section, on the other hand, Pyramid Air has both the better looking weathered version and the non weathered version, see https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Weathered_Legends_MP40_BB_Submachine_Gun_w_Leat...

Re: So many German rifles lets make lamps out of them

:lol: :lol: :roll: That is how you get rid of firearms--- just make a lamp out of a bring back K98k or maybe a M1. Or how about all those nasty shotguns you see at shows.... https://ccs.infospace.com/ClickHandler.ashx?encp=ld%3d20180919%26app%3d1%26c%3dgo.02%26s%3dgopherprivate%26rc%3dgo.02%26dc%3d%...

Re: 2018 - Mosin Nagant Prices

At Cabelas- Richfield WI, somewhat south of West Bend, WI the store has 23, Mosin 91/30s both hex and round receivers. The oddest ones I have seen with a nice small, hardly visible import mark on the left side at the wood line, and a tiny new serial number not visible to my eyes-- you need a magnifi...

Re: Rust in Mosin 91/30 chamber

The new batch of Mosins at Cabelas was a nightmare see http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2608. If you have one of these the chamber should be mirror bright. What I saw was dark chambers and rusted bolts. Basic garbage. So if the import mark is the same, then do some clean up and ...

Re: Cleaning rod for a Carcano M91

Keep looking on gun broker and eBay. About one a year show up. Cost will be around $70-100 for an original. Just log it in on your ebay search list and forget it till an email shows up. You might have better luck buying another dog rusted M91 with its rod at a small gun show. Maybe a redone stock, b...

Re: M1911 not firing when the hammer drops.

I like the idea of sending it back for warranty work since it is new. :idea: :idea: Check out a few simple things. The FIRST question is how far did you take down this new pistol? Maybe put back together wrong???? Did you just do a simple field take down for cleaning? OR..... Did you remove the fir...

Mc Donalds in 1960, and a thin hamburger is still around a buck. Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 3.20.27 AM.png Woolworths had barrels of surplus rifles at $10 -16. Got my first M95 long rifle there dad had to buy it for me. Still got the rifle. Here is a blast from the past, https://forums.gunboards.com/...
