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: Sharing: My 1911.

I have not done one for years now and I believe a lot of the parts from Sarco have dried up. Frames can still be had for around $200. If you can get the parts kit from Sarco somewhere north of $400 probably.http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/451911autobuildkitlessframeandslide.aspxJust checked this. Makes it...

Re: Finn 1891 rifle

The only real thing I have against the MN rifles is the hard to operate bolt compared to the smooth action of say, an Enfield or a nice Mauser.

Re: Different stock length on 91/30s.

The two stocks are different in other ways, too. Like where the sling slots are. I will have to post a picture, maybe tomorrow.

Different stock length on 91/30s.

In cleaning some of my rifles last evening I (finally) noticed that the stock and handguard on one of my 91/30s is about one inch shorter than another right below it. Is this a common thing and what could be the reason? Fixing a damaged stock during re-arsenal is my guess but I just don't know.

Does not appear to be. This is a pic of the S&K: https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product ... km-1470.do And my rifle is a 1903A3. The rescued SC I mean.

Re: FN49 Venezualen contract in 7mm.

Just was looking for more serial #s. Rear of bolt? is marked 944. There is no marking on the receiver cover and no import mark on the barrel. Trying to watch the GA/OK game so don't want to disassemble it any further right now.

Re: FN49 Venezualen contract in 7mm.

Well, the first came with 500 rounds of ammo. The second had no stock markings, the third did have stock markings. Thanks for the leads. Looks like mine is selling for at least twice what I paid. Good information to have.

Re: Ok why so much

My SC came with a star gauge barrel but the rifle had been sportered and the chamber had been messed with. I had a friend hand load some extra long 30-06 for it but it still would not shoot worth a darn. Had a local smith put a NOS barrel on it and put it into a CMP stock. Now it shoots like a dream...

FN49 Venezualen contract in 7mm.

I was able to pick up one of these a couple of years ago in a local estate sale. I paid a bit under $300 and was satisfied it was a good deal. Lately I have been wondering what the real value could be. Cannot find any current auctions to guesstimate from and I am soliciting your help. I am NOT looki...
