Re: What is the history of this 1891 rifles markings?

Is there an importer marked on the rifle? The added serial number on the receiver would suggest a recent import...not done in the 1980s and 90s...or before 1968.

Re: Crazy prices on guns at show

$800 is too much for an unissued Polish M44, but I don’t think you will find one under $500 very often.

A bargain compared to an Unissued M1 Garand or K98 Mauser.

Re: What's In My Barrel?

The only problem with sweets, which is great product, is the high ammonia content. You can't safely use it for long term soaking because of that & nickelling needs the long soak because you have to break the chemical bond which is what makes it so tough to remove. I have sweets & use it at the rang...

Re: What's In My Barrel?

Maybe Nickel from bullet jackets. Whatever it is WD40 isn’t an effective bore cleaner. You need to try something better at this specific task and brushes not patches. I guess I should have included this on my original posting but these images were taken after the application of Hoppes Bore Cleaner,...

Re: K31 help please

The bullet may be contacting the origin of rifling..makes extraction difficult and prevents full pin impact on the primer.

Check the extracted rounds for marks on the bullet ogives from the lands.

Re: Carcano Bore Brush

Try a .270 brush. It will be stout enough to scrub even a worn 268” bore.

Re: .303 or 7.7????

Looks Iraqi to me and the crimp is normal for .303. Century Arms imported a lot of this ammo in the 1990 era, some on clips and bandoliers and other in 50rd boxes. All I had fired well with no significant # of duds or hangfires. Not match grade ammo though.

Re: Movie 2018, TANKERS, Russian

The translation is from Russian to Polish. not much help. Do a search and you'll find T-34 with English sub titles. It's a good movie for entertainment. I just saw Tankers on you tube with English subtitles: good entertainment, but Tank battles don’t really happen at 50 yards. If they did there wou...

How about “How to ID Albanian SKS” as a thread title

“Identification” is a bit lazy for you and time wasting for those who have no knowledge to help you out

Re: Help Identifying Carcano

Will a .30 caliber bullet fit into the muzzle? Yes? Then it is an 7.92 bore. No? then it’s a 6.5 or 7.35 bore.
