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.

Got a question for CandyMan

#1 Post by yooper_sjd » Sun Jul 09, 2017 6:23 pm

I procured a 1945 K Kale short rifle. My understanding from the research I did was they were thrown together from parts of left over runs from previous yrs. After taking my apart it looked like it. Alot of arsenal work was done with with dull chisels and gouges. I have sense floated the barrel and upper hand guard with a dowel and sandpaper till I had no contact with metal till the 2st metal band. Have not shot it yet since doing the work. I reworked 1000 rds of mid 50's iranian 8mm with my berdan to boxer conversion. should i glass bed this and ship the action before even going out to fire it??????

Well, it's your money and time, but I would shoot it as is and then if the results are unsatisfactory proceed from there.

:lol: On any old Turk the first thing is too see if it headsapaces :doh: Then decide what you want to invest into it. If it is a K Kale short rifle I assume the bolt matches. Then check the contact points and pillar. I hate the bedding goo mess- like a sporter it decreases the value on the rifle when it comes time to sell. I leave them as original as possible, do some searches on bedding a Mauser stock the old fashion way.

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

You might have to PM him to wake him up. He is most likely real busy this time of year.
