Faux 1909 Carbine Sniper

Post by tahoe2 »

Made this a few years back, bought a 1908 scrubbed Brazilian action off Gunbroker, got an 09 Carbine
barrel from a fellow SRF subscriber and a stock off of fleabay.

The scope is a Vintage 50's Weaver KV 2-5x32 Variable w/fine crosshairs in Leupold rings & mounts.
Preliminary shooting loosened the rings & mounts (in my excitement forgot to lok-tite) hance the large groups.
I have since managed 1.5" MOA w/AA-2495 and Hornady's 150 SST's , a very consistent load.
My other scoped 7.65x53 is an M24/47 Yugo with an "09" Carbine barrel, that barrel prefers 174 & 180
grn round-nose bullets from Hornady & Speer. H-4895 powers those @ 1" MOA. Love those 7.65's

My original 1909 Argentine Cavalry Carbine is what inspired those Sporters, so I wouldn't ruin it hunting.

Great looking/shooting little carbine. Is that a "rope-wrapped wrist"?? Sounds like a song lyric, or a book title--"The Hardy Boys and the case of the Rope-Wrapped Wrist"--
