You always love your first, even if she drop kicks you for a newer model.
Marlin/Revelation 110M bought with hay baling money from Western Auto in 1972.

Re: Restoring VZ 24

1 option is to put it in military dress and add a vintage scope for a 'faux' sniper. I do know where complete stock sets for a VZ-24 can be sourced.

Re: vz23 with wrong bolt

Finding a bolt with that prefix for your VZ-23 will be next to impossible. Best bet is to trade/buy for a standard VZ-24 bolt. Also, you can attach pictures directly using options found with the 'Full Editor' option.

Re: Hello from Southeast Idaho

Welcome. I have an unconverted M95 Budapest, myself. It's missing the sight slider, however. On a side note, my little brother lives on the Salmon river.

Eotech 551

Any members familiar with Eotech sights? Trying to help someone out, but I believe it's a fake/counterfeit. Would like another opinion.

Re: I picked up what I thought was a Carcano today

Correct Type I TG compared with Carcano. Similarities in design and manufacture readily noticeable

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: 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.
