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: Vz 24 with potential German markings.

It looks like you may have a k98 or someone put on a k98 stock and rear sight base.
What are the markings on the receiver ring and left side of receiver?
The sling is a repro.

August 42 receiver. 5-63 barrel, 1+ me 3 te. CMP wood. HRA bolt. All other marked parts are SA. Nice uniform finish.
Sounds like you got a keeper. The WW2 receiver is a nice catch.

maaaaaybe a clip or two in their pockets?, but the majority of their are clearly flat/empty. Anybody have the ability to enlarge the shot enough to see what the men still in the truck have? at least one suggests Mauser.
All 91/30's when I zoomed in.

CMP service grades are $730 shipped right now. That's less than the "street" price. I just received another Springfield from them Friday.
You can't post something like that and not give use the stats & pictures on what you got. We need our fix.... :mrgreen:

Re: 7.62 OFV 86

Update, the OFV 86 is not very good, bad accuracy and the extraction rim on some of the cases was under sized.
I had a few rounds of OFV 77 and it was very good in accuracy and good brass.
All was boxer primed.

Re: Gotta be a fake

Being in the woods of PA my whole life I can say you don't want to meet up with a whitey during their mating season. If you shoot them the'll just get angry and tear your arms off, best to just let them finish and spoon you for a little while and slip away when it falls asleep.

Re: Flat or round?

Thank you Urbanwolf for posting the pictures. I'm surprised the lead wadcutters didn't expand more in the harder wood and dirt. Unfortunately in semi-auto pistols you can't shoot flat nose wadcutters. What I'm trying to find out is if I have a choice in fmj plinking ammo will one be a better defensi...

Re: K98 stock oil?

I'm not sure I would be doing any scrubbing on a Kriegsmarine stock with original stamps still visible. That's not a Russian or Yugo captured re-arsenaled rifle. The more you do to it the more you may be taking away from its value.

Re: Flat or round?

A good majority of 38 wadcutter bullets have a hollow base, so if you loaded backwards you would have a hollow point. Back when police still carried 38 specials there wasn't the huge selection of wadcutters we have today of all types and shapes.
