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: German MEN 303

Looks like it is dated 1983 and real clean ammo. Not bad at 50 cents per round. Everyone in the reviews loves the stuff. There are some pictures of it here: https://www.sgammo.com/product/303-british-ammo/500-round-can-303-british-surplus-ammo-174-grain-bi-metal-fmj-1980s-vintage THIS MAY BE A WELL ...

Re: Southern MN storms.

Were those straight line winds? How much wind speed, around 80 MPH? Glad to see all are OK, but a real mess to get outbuildings back onto foundations. Looks like you will need to build a new implement building. The barn is still standing tall?

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

It would make a perfect Christmas gift for me. No shipping because its over $150, you could just send it to my house :shock: I have the correct period socket if it is a sectionalized lamp rewired wrong. It has the lower hole, correct maker- a Bryant lamp switch/socket with the correct red/black shut...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

I decided to repost all of IMA excellent photos because after it is sold they may not be available and I wanted documentation of this example. ALL photos are IMAs from the above linked source. If I had the cash I would buy it just so I can study it. What I think we have here at IMA is a possible Unc...

Re: Anyone here have a 1895 Nagant that they've tried fitting a .32 cylinder to?

Anemic little dogs, mine shoots fine with Fiocchi or Magtech .32 S&W Long, 100grain or 98 grain, lead wadcutter ammo. Around 17-20 bucks a box. More power than the PPU 7.62 Nagant ammo. It also produces a better pattern than the PPU ammo in my pistol. S & B makes a hotter cartridge at 885 fps rather...

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...

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: 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 ...
