Re: Anyone identify this rifle?

Thanks to Charles and M67 for helping this ole fart. I tend to recognize military rifles, but since this was a "hunting/utility" rifle it was off my radar? I noticed they offered a variant SL6A2 with a 2 round burst! ( For the coyote you really want to kill? LOL ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heckl...

I saw this "funny" meme about dumb shooters and did not recognize the rifle? Looks like some kind of semi FN thingy??

Re: Gunboards all new, nasty

The only reason I go there is for the Trading and Selling section. Make sure you use a hosting site for any photos in your album....because you can't delete them on the new format. I was a member of the M14 forum for many years until they screwed up their forum recently.

Re: Nagoya Series 4 Type 99

I have a series 3 that I looked for several years to find the right stock. I finally found an early series from Liberty Tree Collectors with that "been on Iwo Jima" look! I think they are out of stock but if I see anything I will let you know!

I found a 20rd box of surplus 7.35 ammo today. Stamped T.M. and B-39

Is this run of the mill standard stuff?

Re: Ordered me one of those $299 No4s from RTI

Saw a post on FB where a guy rec'd an enfield from RTI and the stock was cracked. He returned it to RTI for exchange and they sent him another one that was also had a cracked stock. He finally gave up and got his money back. It was one of the std picks ( not a hand select ). He did say he got a nice...

Re: Just like the boy scouts

Great post. Worked with a guy many years ago who was in the Hitler Youth. In 1945 they put a bunch of them in trenches with panzerfaust's and told them to blow up the American tanks. When the tanks showed up they climbed from the ditch and raised their hands!

Re: RC K98

I bought a nice k98 with a nice redish laminated stock many years ago. Since I had used BLO on most of my milsurps I lightly cleaned the stock and rubbed in my BLO.
Big mistake! It lost its nice red color and turned very dark brown. Live and Learn!
