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: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

PennsylvaniaRifleman, so the the bolt matches itself?? Looks like a matching rifle except the bolt???? Do the bands match? One fine K98k. Thanks for the detailed photos. Except for that import mark, that would be a high price item for a faker to remove the import mark. Fantastic rifle. Worthy of an ...

Re: Please help me identify

CH4D makes great dies but if it is special order it can take 4-6 months. You can generally find original 8x50R mannlicher at gun shows for 1-2 bucks per round.

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

ffuries is most likely shaking his head at all of this. I hope he gets his M48. The serial number on a M1924 model can be used to date the rifle,but not on a M48. :shhh:
Only the pre-war Yugoslav Model 1924 Mausers are in a serial sequence that can be traced to specific production years.

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

After searching some other forums I can go with that. It sounds like a Mosin rebuild where an almost identical rifle to the M1924 was rebuilt using good old parts like the Russians did to the Mosins. Taking WW II rifles and reusing parts to make a new rebuilt rifle called the 24/47. The rifle as a 2...

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

I do not know about the rebuild process and how far they actually tore the m1924s down. I believe they got new barrels and sights more like the M48. Receivers were scrubbed of the old markings and restamped with the Yugo crests and marked 24/47. I do not own a 24/47 only the m1924 , M48 and M48A - a...

Re: Yugo M48 Series?

These rifles are the last of the 'M-24' series straight bolt Yugo Mausers and were all produced after the Second World War. The '/47' and '/52' designations reveal the starting dates of manufacture (1947 and 1952 respectively). The model 1924 were certainly around but the rebuilds started post WW I...

Re: Malaysian 7.62x51mm - Any good?

Harder than normal primers, LC works ok in the rifle as is, but I had to up the firing pin spring for the Malaysian. Id say 25% needed a better striker spring. Anyone else experience this: harder primers. This was shot in a bolt action Israeli mauser that fired German and US .308 NATO ok.
