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.

Very nice carbine! I got one as a gift a year ago and it shoots well.
It too has a troop tag.

I have been very fortunate to pick up some good examples of the Swiss rifle of late.
This one will go to the range in a couple of weeks to blow out the webs.
I bought a 1906 Swiss Saw Back recently to complement the K11

Now I need to track down an 1897 Kadet
