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.

Truck Gun

I was never a fan of the AR/M16 platform due to my active duty experience, but I couldn't pass up building a couple once I came back from over 5 years in the mideast. The prices had been ridiculous. So, I decided to build a 'truck' gun. Something that could be used by anyone-righty or lefty, was wea...

Re: Spanish M1916 Comparison

I have no crest, a OT serial number, No crossbolt, no locking screw, the rear sight Number 3 over stamp to 2. The 'Samco' importer has the muzzle marking of Ovido Spanish M-1916 OR FL 308W I also noticed your TG doesn't match the stock in-letting. A noticable gap is in the picture as if the action ...

Re: 1909 Mauser Carbine in .30-06

They were commonly re-chambered to what, around here, is called 31-06. Unfortunately, I've seen some that weren't marked as such. It used the 06 case with a .311/.312 bullet to get any accuracy.

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

I have one, as well. I tested it out with standard 6.5 Japanese loads made for my T-38. I never got to fine tuning loads for it or using other than virgin brass, but it preferred the Sierra #1730, 140 gr., SP Boat-tails.

It's in a VZ-24 stock, but that wouldn't be uncommon with its history.

Re: Carbine Family Photo

Not really, but the T53 & the Polish are great shooters. I sort of have a soft spot for 91/59s, now that I think about it.

Re: Dating a FRMP 1909 Argentine Carbine

That is odd. The 2nd variant serial numbers should also have started at 005001. This variant (with the Gendarmeria Nacional below the crest) were made between 1949 & 1959.

Re: VZ24 in 7mm

You will probably discover that the Brazilian VZ-24s were originally purchased by separatists trying to create a free state of Sau Paulo. Many of these rifles were then placed in service with the Military Police. That is why the second serial number, prefixed by "PM" is on the right side of the rece...

Re: M94 Swede Redemption Project

An old timer down here had a stock that he refused to let go of no matter how often I pestered. After returning from an extended vacation in the Middle East, I went looking for him, again. Unfortunately he had passed away and all his gun stuff had been sold off.
