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: Looking for 8x50r Mannlicher load data

Maybe this will help? http://www.milsurps.com/showthread.php?t=21029 Thanks for the link Zeliard. Unfortunately, from what I can tell, these loads are all using .323 bullets. I'm not sure why the use of .323 bullets caught on in reloading for these rifles. I would assume that these loads were devel...

Re: Glad to See the Forum Back

I never spent much time at these forums, but have frequented others (Supak1). My father and I have collected milsurps for 25 years, but I just recently "got the bug" again. Curious as to how this forum is different from those other milsurp forums. I have tried to access info posted to these forums i...

All matching but missing a cleaning rod unfortunately. I hope to pick up a 96 before too long if I can find one in the ...

Looking for 8x50r Mannlicher load data

Hey all, I've been trying to find good load data for the 8x50r mannlicher....particularly loads using .330 or .329 jacketed 208gr bullets and using IMR 4064 powder. If you have any successful loads using that combination, please share. P.S. also willing to take any good load data shooting pushing th...

Re: C&R site

I think C and Arsenal is a wonderful resource. He covers a lot of great rifles, and it's easier for some folks to wrap their heads around some of the history when it is being dictated. I wish my girlfriend would handle my rifles like Mae.

Re: Steyr M95 straight pull

I'm pretty sure this one was cut down. The original sling swivel holes have been plugged. I guess that the stock could definitely be from a chopped long rifle since its stamped with two serials. I would imagine this happened quite often, as the original stocks were probably beat to hell in the war....

These are very sweet rifles, and I'm glad I bought mine when I did. Thought I overpaid, but looking at the prices these days.... :shock: ....goodness. Amazing how much the price of all milsurps have exploded even in just the past few years. Get'em while they're cheap folks. Expensive today is the go...

Re: LB No.4 Mk.1 repaired handguard

Here we go. It does look like there was a small crack starting to form. http://i.imgur.com/Ze10tmH.jpg Brian Dick of EFD rifles suggested that this rifle had seen service in Greece (based on a 46' FTR stamp on the collar). I also spotted a very similar LB No. 4 that has Greek militia markings. http:...

I have a 1940 LB no4 that has repairs very Similar to that. No visible cracks either. I'll try to get a few photos up.

Re: Steyr M95 straight pull

This rifle confuses me. Chopped long rifles still had their long rear sight leafs correct? I read somewhere that as WWI was getting started, some original carbine length rifles were fitted with banded front sights in order to rush them through production. Might be worth some more research. Nice rifl...
