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.

Yeah I would say $600 is cheap enough.

Dutch FN-48 Queen Wilhelmina All Matching

Got this one recently. Haven't had a chance to get better pics due to weather. It's all matching in like new condition. Also got it at a very reasonable price. It is one of my favorites. Second Shortest Military Mauser I know of but this one is in 8mm Mauser whereas the Mexican FN Model 1924 is 7mm ...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

For ammo I second the FN from the 1970s. Also Chilean Military Surplus. If newer than I believe 1973 it is non corrosive. That 1930s FN is best to pull for components. Congrats on your purchase. I decided to pass on the 30’s FN ammo. Other expenses have arisen, don’t ya know. Now the trick will be ...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

If need be, should I attempt to recrown the Muzzle since this is a non matching gun? If need be l, of course.. Non matching I see no harm in a recrown. Prices are all over the place for the 1908 Brazilian I bought one last year all matching for $400 shipped at local auction. Seen mixmasters in much...

Repro 42 VKT M39 SOV

They just sold a M/39-43 and SOV at auction in Finland. Hammer Price was 2,500€ and 2,700€ + 13% Buyers premium. Plus 50€ Finnish license fee per rifle plus another $1,000 to bring them both here. Both rifles were bought by known Finnish Collectors. Final price about $4,000 each. I'm guessing repro ...

Re: Another Mas 36

Anyone in America looking for a MAS-36 local guy has one for sale marked and matching everywhere but the forestock is not numbered. Great condition. Cursive L block 80xxx. Would that make it 1945? He is asking $550. If interested PM me.

Re: Brazilian Mausers

Thank you . I got to look at my Chilean mausers. Sounds like I got the wrong slings from Gander. Maybe they are Brazilian or Spanish. They have not been out in 12 years. Those are some nicely stamped intact crests that have not been worn smooth. We no longer see South American Mausers at guns shows...

Brazilian Mausers

Do you have any actual Brazilian original slings to show? :think: :think: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: Please how about a nice crest view. Do they all have a Brazilian crest on the rifles? No slings but plenty of crests https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180714/3921a4afd7bd15b1b2285ead921b208a.jpg h...

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

Why does the crest in Ball's book look so different? I am on page 39 of Balls, " Mauser Military Rifles of the World , second ed, 2000 and both pictures show the same crest . Just that the photo on the right of an 1895 rifle is from a poorly stamped example. A poor photo. Balls 1893 crest is the sa...

Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

Anyone know when all the bolt parts started becoming numbered? They are numbered on my 1895 but not my 1893? Why does the crest in Ball's book look so different? Do only some have dates under the stock Cartouche? Seems both my 1893 and 1895 are zeroed to 300m and have the single side spring which wo...

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

Curious if the sling on the 1893 is original The sling is incorrect from what little shows. It appears to be a 1903 Springfield US sling. On my 1895 Chilean Mausers I got this type of sling with the rifles when Gander Mountain sold tons of 1895 rifles at $165 back around 2007/8???? For what I think...

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

I recently acquired what I believe to be an original all matching 1893 Chilean Mauser that was originally meant for the Boers (C Block) to go with my 1895 Chilean Mauser which I have had for a few years. Curious if the sling on the 1893 is original and what the stipling on the stock is from. The 18...

Brazilian Mausers

My current Brazilian Mauser collection. All are all matching except for the 1922 Carbine which is mostly matching. The stock and bolt parts were replaced however the bolt handle and other parts are matching. I am in search of original and matching Brazilian 1894 Long & Carbine 1907 Long & Carbine 19...
