Re: 1962 Surplus ad, what to get if you had 35 bucks

Mc Donalds in 1960, and a thin hamburger is still around a buck. Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 3.20.27 AM.png Woolworths had barrels of surplus rifles at $10 -16. Got my first M95 long rifle there dad had to buy it for me. Still got the rifle. Here is a blast from the past, https://forums.gunboards.com/...

Re: Mauser 1910?? pocket pistol-need advice

Also of mention there are early magazines and later magazines for the 1910. So it depends on the .25 pistol which mag will fit. With .32 all mags are the same. Bring your spare mag to see if it fits. I can not remember the serial number cut off for the early and late models of the 1910 pocket pistol...

Re: Mauser 1910?? pocket pistol-need advice

I use a .32 as a back up in my vest pocket or in my USMC M65 Jacket in fall / winter. If you wear a vest with an inside pocket in summer it fits fine and no one can see it. For a short barrel pistol they shoot really fine if the barrel is intact. In WI at gun shows a nice one is $450-550 depending o...

Re: k31 Overpay or a Steal?

Well, they were $59 at Aim and $79 on Black Friday at Dunhams back around 2005. But they seem to go for crazy prices say around $550-600 at WI gun shows at todays prices. But the serial numbers should match the bolt and rifle. You can get the date of your rifle. MAKE SURE the mag, bolt and rifle ser...
