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: Chrome YUGO M57 unusual marking

Todd, my 2 cents, M57 tokarevs in 7.62x25 original caliber are kind of out of favor due to the cost of ammo in WI. Just a comment. At Wi gun shows the M57 is always plentiful and difficult to sell if its not the 9mm version. The poor safety that is problematic and unavailability of ammo at regular s...

Re: Chrome YUGO M57 unusual marking

I assume these are in 7.62 x 25, at gun show most seem to buy the 9mm versions of the Yugo M88 and M88a?? There was a long and short version. Also there are 3 versions of the new M70 tokarev: M70, M70 a, M70 aa. It will be interesting to see if these are some special Army Yugo unit's pistols or some...

Re: Chrome YUGO M57 unusual marking

Sorry all I can make out on my old computer is the factory trade mark "ZASTAVA" in fancy script which is below REDMOND WA and above MADE IN YUGOSLAVIA. That fist photo shows a like new pistol ,not heavily worn--looks really nice to me.

Re: Chrome YUGO M57 unusual marking

Not sure what mark you are referring to? I see the PW import mark and the commercial "ZASTAVA "Arms company mark with the "Made in Yugo" mark. These are different from the first chrome ones Classic did a few years back. Is it marked with a crest , in 9mm or 7.62x25 and is it marked M88, M57, M70 ?? ...

Re: YUGO M57 chrome interest?

None from me and I am a tok nut. Todd, I would think there would be more interest in a 7.62x25 unmarked slide, no crest version of the m57 or one lacking an import mark and safety. Are these the newer 9mm or 7.62x25 versions?

Re: 1914 ,1934, HSC Pocket pistol Mags

Thank You for your input. I realize different mags that are made for the same gun by different companies can work better than others . The US 1911 is a fine example of a pistol that likes/functions well with some mags and hangs up / bottle necks with others. I thought the .32 pocket pistol mags shou...

Check out the new reviews on the silver pellet model and the linked review.

Re: 1912/61 NATO

Ah this was the old link I was looking for. Gander had both original 7mm and the converted long rifles many years ago. I got the 7mm Mauser ones to avoid the chamber insert. Sometime around 2006-2007. Most in 7mm had mismatched bolts , but each store had approximately 10 and some matched and had the...

Re: 1912/61 NATO

You are lucky its a 1912 rather than the redone 1895 NATO rifle. The converted military 1912 Chilean rifles in 7.62NATO were converted by using US 1903 barrels (2 grooves), then rechambered to 7.62NATO. I also think there are some 4 groove barrels among the1912s in 7.62 Nato. Many of the small ring ...

Ah, for an adventure read up on what ever rifle you are going to look for, buy headspace gauges, bore gauge, bore light, and magnifier to inspect the firearm. Then go to gun shows :dance: :clap: --- see my long comment in this old post :shifty: : http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t...

The bore gauge in the first picture, never seen one like it. Who manufactures/sells them? Vandle, As for bore gauges I like the Fulton armory gauge better than the CMP gauge. Its precision steel and well marked. See http://www.fulton-armory.com/muzzleweargaugefor300-303bores.aspx then read this inp...

Re: VZ-52 SHE

Interesting the stock is in original or possible refinished condition. The old century rifles from the late 1990s had a spray on black bed liner like material that covered the broken and cracked junk stocks. That bed liner spray material was a real job to remove and then the problems arose---most br...
