Re: TT-33 crack

Time to replace the old dog. Aim has grade 2 Romanian T33s at $179. Still an inexpensive pistol that shoo...

Re: Second Time

I do not know where these people come from, but way to many place their firearms across the table instead of pointing down range (pistols or rifles), too many leave a firearm chambered when people go down range, do not empty the chamber or use chamber flags when people are down range, do not have sp...

Re: Help needed in saving an 1886/93 Lebel

Well at least it will be an interesting project? I am waiting to see what the experts say... Maybe, Mark can show his Lebel bolt body, bolt head, and the bolt head screw. He always helps out. Who has a Lebel? We need some photos :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Re: Help needed in saving an 1886/93 Lebel

Maybe Patrick on the gunboards forum post will help you find parts in France or come up with a schematic in french and he can put English names to the parts. My old GunParts catalogs have no French parts listed. I do not own a Lebel so I can not make actual part comparisons to my Berthiers. I got so...

Mowbray & Joe Puleo, 2007, Mowbray Publishing, 304 pages. Look up pages 202-206. LEBEL. Bolt parts are shown in the bo...
