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.

95 Chilean Carbine

#1 Post by milboltnut » Mon Mar 19, 2018 8:37 pm

Hey Guys,
I have a 95 Lowe Chilean Carbine in 7x57 mauser. Partial Crest,.. kinda wore off in the middle and light on the edges. Has a crest on the butt stock that you can barely see. The bore is good to very good... the grooves are slightly dark.... Haven't scrubbed it out really good since I had it. The groove measure .287. Wanna try some oversized hard cast bullets. The twist is 1:10? so is it the same with the long rifles too? I was watching a vid from forgotton weapons on a Norwegian K98 where they U notched the rear V notch sight and flattened the front sight blade. Some or all may not agree with that but The rear sight was pretty pathetic along with a .287 groove diameter. If the accuracy doesn't improve as far as I'm concerned I'll scrap the thing....LOL

I have a couple of overbore 7mm Mausers: a Spanish m1916 Ludwig Loewe, and a Venezuelan parts rifle -- don't ask. . . . Anyway, both shoot quite well with these: https://www.buffaloarms.com/287-diamete ... -bac287154
