Re: k31 Overpay or a Steal?

Not sure what price range K31s are going in the states but you have a nice example.
The crack shouldn't be too hard to repair. There are alot of posts on this forum about stock repairs

Re: My repro Guardie del Duce project

Its not a very well known subject, these carbines as well as the DUCA D'AOSTA 1891 moschetto. very elaborate engravings on the receiver and gold plating on certain parts. Very fancy and very rare.

Please keep us updated on your project. I love to see the final product.

And the fact that everyone picked up their paper and smelled it. The smell was a mix of alcohol and something.

I miss that smell and the page 3 girls :(

Re: Japanese Carbines

I don't mind the carbines, one is on my wish list.

They look to be in great condition.

Interested in the types of timber/ finishes that were used in the stocks
