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.

Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

This one turned up and I have been after one for a while so I took the plunge.
I haven't seen too many up for sale lately so why not

This one was manufactured by Ludwig Lowe in 1895.

This one is matching right down to the cleaning rod.

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

Pricing of firearms/parts at gun shows have risen in Oz as well.

You can still get the odd bargain, especially in parts.
A lot of the vendors do not have shop fronts, so their prices are
a little lower than vendors from the big shops.

In the past gun shows meant lower prices but no longer

Re: Matching GEW 98 photo heavy

Not exactly sure but I think Ludwig Muller Darmstat.
There is still a manufacturing plant of the same name that manufactures synthetics/plastics.

Maybe a coincidence

Re: Any one know of Units marking their rifles SPANISH CIVIL WAR

My Polish Kar 98AZ also has a scrubbed receiver and the only Spanish markings it has is the Spanish acceptance mark on the butt stock

Re: Matching GEW 98 photo heavy

That is a very nice example of a Gew 98

Love the patina on the receiver

One of those are high on my list.

Maybe one day :pray:

Hi TazzieAzz

I paid $750.00 AUD about 3 years ago when these were thin on the ground.

Very nice rifle. I too have taken a liking to the French MAS. I'm still looking for an all matching wartime MAS-36.

Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
I like to find one as well
