Re: SMLE .22 trainer

Last ones. If anyone know more about this one please comment.

I know it was made in 1915 and sent to Canada because of the Broad Arrow C and that it has a Cooey rear sight. Oh am maybe it was converted at or by BSA. When I have no I deal.

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: Price check Krag–Jørgensen Norwegen M1894 "long Krag"

Slowbob2,

How would you compare pricing between a M1894 Long Karg and a Norwegian M1912 Carbine? I am going to go back ad look at it again and measure the barrel length. I have been looking at too many pictures of these.

Thanks,
Kevin

Edit....It is a M1897 and it followed me home.

Re: Cast Bullets for Carcano

First questions , what rifle are you using , what is the bore size - land and groove ? Carcanos have deep rifling that tends to tear up cast bullet , many have gain twist which also tears up bullets , some have .268 + deep groove that do not work well with an undersize cast bullet . Also be very ca...

Man Photobucket has a lot of pop up ads these days and they tend to get lost over time.
