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.

Venezuelan Carbine Restoration

#1 Post by Mwt » Tue Aug 29, 2017 11:08 pm

These restorations are beginning to be habit forming. Picked up a nice Venezuelan Carbine barreled action off GunBroker for $129 shipped. All the metal parts down to the handguard clip and tiny screws were there.

Had the buttstock and stock tip left from the vz98/22 stock I used to restore the Belgium 89/36. So I joined the two pieces with a duffle cut repair under the rear band and I had a large ring standard action carbine stock.
