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.

You won't believe this is for sale?

A local gun shop is now selling 8x57m/m Mauser ammunition for $45.00 a box of 20 rounds. This ammunition is made in Germany especially for Mitchell's Mauser's rifles!
Got to love it.

Re: FN 1950? 7.62x51mm Carbine find

I took the carbine to the range yesterday. I shot at NRA Chickens set to two hundred meters. The bullets impacted 4" to the right of center and 14" high using M-80 Ball.
A taller front sight will correct this problem. Recoil was mild. No muzzle flash. Very pleasant to shoot from the prone.

I took my force meter,which is dead-bolts on. I assembled a pulling collar that pulled the striker straight back and measured these: M1891 91/30 M38 Finn M39 M44 M59 I found the Commies did a very good job of manufacturing springs that were duplicate-able by different countries. The average spring f...

Timing is everything. The seller had some of the nicest rifles I've seen in a long time. A 1903 National Match Rifle done by Sedgley as well several Sedgley hunting rifles.

Re: FN 1950? 7.62x51mm Carbine find

So far responses on the web seem to indicate it is a Model 1930 Carbine instead of a 1950 that went to Morocco. There is not much info on these little carbines and who really used them.

Re: Swiss 1911 vs. K31

Total BS on down loading! Shoot GP-11 ammo. It was made for the M-1911 rifle! I have shot hundreds of rounds out of my rifle at long range. You poor kid...... wait to you shoot it against your K31. The M-1911 is just stupid accurate at any range and a real joy to shoot. The rifle makes the K31 look ...

Make sure you are not casting a shadow on the subject the camera can see as it will try to average in this as well and ruin the expo...

Re: Identify CZ 50

The marking means it was accepted by the National Security Service 1952. One would assume that it was also the year the pistol was made as well. Mine are marked NB 50 and 52.
