Re: Need help with forum

I don't use an iPhone, but under the quick links in the top left corner is a "new posts" option.

If it's the same as an android, the first tap on the "Quick links" should bring up that sub-menu.

Re: 91/59 Questions

Thanks for all the info, 72.

I've not heard back from the seller, so this may be an academic exercise for now.

Happy Independence Day!

91/59 Questions

Being offered locally is a 1943 Mosin 91/59. From the few pics offered, it looks "decent". I've already emailed to ask about numbers, counter-bore and bore condition. Seller took it in trade and does not shoot this caliber, so I did not ask about head space. I have Okie gauges to bring with me, if w...

Enfield No2Mk1

So, I have this old gun...... :roll: About 3 years ago, I snagged this revolver from a local pawn shop. Being primarily a bolt action rifle guy, I was flying blindly. It's in really good condition, but it does seem to have a mechanical issue. Enfield.jpg The hammer will not go back when the action i...

Re: Please members the forum needs your help

I just logged in for the first time in a month or two. Looked for the donate button and didn't see it. (I'm obviously not the tech guy you're looking for, haha) If anyone can direct me to the donate link, I'd appreciate it. From the post in Announcements, I'm guessing it should be somewhere in this ...

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 ...
