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: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

Its not like I have to fire it. I must have at least 8 Mas 36 functioning rifles. One is still in the arsenal wrap. Its would be nice to shoot it 20 times and fire off a box of ammo just to get its feel and see where it shoots.

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

On normal military 1964 brass it functioned like a Mosin with hard extraction. Just the reverse- hard to insert not remove. You had to give the bolt a hard push, not enough that you had to hit it with your hand or a hammer, but still too hard, like trying to force another persons neck sized British ...

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

Good point, but I want to have a spare, correct extractor prior to modification to the rifle. I lightly polished the extractor claw, but it did nothing to correct the problem. I think the gap is too narrow, but yet with the bolt head removed, a cartridge slips on fine, likewise my headspace gauge. W...

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

Does anyone have pictures of their bolt's extractor ? Can someone provide a gap distance on their rifle ? Does your rifle actually correctly strip a cartridge off the magazine and fully seat the round onto the bolt face and under the extractor just prior to chambering a round ?

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

I took a box of ammo and altered/filed the upper lower edge of each cartridge and polished the circumference of the back of a cartridge so its more rounded and polished and that makes it definitely easy for the bolt extractor to snap over an original cartridge, but it still will not pick up a shell ...

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

The bolt face and extractor jaw. Pic of follower. I wonder if the extractor is bent too far in or it springs down too much, this may prevent the edge of the cartridge from easily sliding into place under the extractor. Anyone got ideas. DOES ANYONE KNOW FOR SURE WHAT TYPE OF EXTRACTOR WOULD BE A COR...

Re: French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

No I have not actually fire a live round. The cartridge does not slip under the extractor, a bad design, maybe? The cartridge pops up and fails to slide into the face of the bolt like a normal bolt action rifle. The shell fits nice and snug under the extractor jaw, but just does not fit as the actio...

A nice but low power shooter , the Ranchero arrow pistol. Not bad if it was $200 :roll: :roll: :doh: see air gun depot https://www.airgundepot.com/fx-ranchero-arrow-pcp-air-pistol.html Even better a pump, air pistol arrow shooter, the Indy Arrow, 2 shots per pump. But the price is nuts. https://www....
