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.

Here is my FN1922 Brazilian Carbine which I picked up from a dealer recently.
These are pics from the dealer and the rifle scrubbed up ok after a clean.
Bolt does not match but matches its self.
There is minor pitting on the outside of the receiver but surprisingly minimal under the timber.
The timber is in quite good condition with no cracks or splits.

Bore is very dark and frosty. Calibre is 7x57

Interesting rifle as its the only FN manufactured rifle with the 1922 designation and Brazil the only customer.
Estimated units are 20k plus manufactured over 2 years.
They are also the only M98 type receiver to have the straight wrist stock.
Many were refurbished in the 50s where the receivers were blued and rebarrelled when necessary.
This one missed out.

These photos actually doesn't do it justice and I will try to send updated photos down the track

Its something a little different for the collection.

Cheers

Very nice, how's the bore? Those carbines are handy, and the first 5 rounds are a hoot. After that things become less fun.

I love mine, but the handguard is in pieces after the last time I shot it (had a bad crack to start). If anyone has leads on one, I would really appreciate it.

Hi DWM

The bore is very dark and frosty.
I have seen better but will be taking it out on the range next week
and see if putting a few rounds through it makes a difference.

Have scrubbed the bore with solvent but only slight improvement.
I'm not expecting miracles.

Cheers
