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.

Re: Current value of

The rifle, depending on condition, can run from $250 to $450 and sometimes more. The bayonet will go from $80 to $150.
Now these prices will vary depending on when and where the items or sold.

Repairing Grip panel screw holes,

Repairing Grip panel screw holes. This repair can be done on synthetic or wood grips. Here is a set of Ruger MkI grips that the material under the screw heads have broken away and there is nothing left for the screws to hold. You can see that lower hole on the panel on the right is missing material....

Re: 1884 Trapdoor Stock repair

Nice repair. Here's a tip. Most often the repair will blend better without adding the die to the Acraglas. You can also pat sanding dust into the Acraglas along the crack while it is still wet.

1920 Izhevsk Mosin built on a 1900 Tula receiver.

This is one of the rifles from a crate of Hex Mosins I picked up on one of my road trip back in 2011. When Dan over at Dan's Ammo opened the crate, I saw this rifle and said it was the crate I wanted. He told me that he had some paperwork to do on the crate and would have it done in two days. When I...

Remington Lebel Berthier 07-15

I walked into one of the local shops and found this rifle sitting on the rack. I wasn't going to buy it at first, but went back a day or two later and picked it up. I'm really not into French rifles so, I was not sure if I was going to keeping it long. When I got home with it my oldest son said that...

Who Bubbaed your Enfield?

I have read many post over the years that have blamed Bubba for the crimes committed against Enfields. But it was not always Bubba and his evil doings that caused those poor Enfields to suffer. Lets go back to 1965 and see how things were. Here is an ad from an American Rifleman '65. http://i35.tiny...

Maschinenpistole 44, or MP44

The Maschinenpistole 44, or MP44, or still further the StG 44, is more commonly associated as being the father of the modern assault rifle design. You could say it was the I Phone of the 40s. The production process of the weapon relied on speedy stampings, welding and pressing - contrary to the norm...

There just never seems to be anything or its marked up to new prices. The flea markets were good to me but that was many years ago. Nice pick up , congrats . There a...

Re: 1925 Izhevsk Ex-Dragoon

The presence of a post war Soviet refurb mark from the 1st GRAU Arsenal in Balakleya Russia on this rifle would indicate that its a ex-dragoon refurb that was issued out afterwards instead of being stored like most we see in the U.S. The post war stock and the retaining pin on the rear sight mount ...

Re: My M4 clone

I picked up a C7 upper really cheap last year and decided to find as many used parts as I could to build a rifle. This is what I ended up with. The only new parts is , Anderson stripped lower, buffer and spring, and a few of the small springs.
