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: Value and features on K.Kale Mauser

Follow up report. Bore was dirty and showed rust from improper cleaning after firing corrosive but rifling looked decent. Inverted bullet "muzzle test" indicated good barrel life left. Some goober went at a barrel band fastener with an angle grinder. May need to replace that band. It functions but i...

Re: Value and features on K.Kale Mauser

Seller is asking $300 firm and I'll likely shell out because I want it and haven't seen much better lately.

My Yugo's need some company...

Thanks for the input, gents!

Value and features on K.Kale Mauser

I'm looking at a local trade of a 44 K. Kale Mauser. Wood is decent, blueing at 75%, has cleaning rod, includes a bayonet and a cheap soft case. Hard to be specific without pics, I know. Haven't seen the bore yet. Assuming bore is serviceable, what's a fair price on one? Any Turk specific things I s...

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

One thing that's been disturbing me. It appears that the cocking handle is somehow upside down. I wonder why that is.

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

Well I may have over payed. I've had a few great deals lately, so I guess it was "my turn". I'm not gonna cry unless it just refuses to shoot well. If they don't work me to death, I might get to the range this year.... Now, I have to re-add another caliber to the clutter around here. What flavor of ...

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

I looked at those marks on the receiver once or twice and never put 2 + 2 together as to their origin (Where's Captain Obvious when you need him, Hammerdown :lol: ) I'm guessing those marks are the result of a barrel swap. The patina indicates that whatever injustice was done was decades ago, so I'm...

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

Well, I picked up the rifle today. Negotiated to $300 after tax, so better than I expected. No, I don't intend a restoration to issued condition. I just missed not having a 30.06 since gifting away my Remington 721 years ago. I think it is a mid century home sporter made back in the day when most me...

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...

I only saw the one serial number. The stock looks like a amateur shaping job and I suspect someone put the stamping in some vain hope of adding a false "legitimacy" to things. That said, the bore looks OK, the action works smoothly and I suspect the diopter rear sight is a desirable feature. If I sa...
