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.

Hi All,

My name is Christian and old military bolt-actions are one of my passions, specifically Mausers. My background includes 6.5 years in the firearms industry and I hold a career diploma in gunsmithing (for whatever that's worth). I love learning new facts about historic firearms and military history. Currently on my short list are a circa WW1 GEW98 and a Norwegian Krag-Jorgensen (6.5x55). Below is a sampling on some of the rifles I own:

Swedish Carl Gustaf 1912 M96/38 6.5x55
I'm a huge 6.5 Swede fanboy (hence the desire for the Norwegian Krag); this rifle is one of my hunting rifle. It's outfitted with a Bushnell scout scope and I'd love to harvest an animal with it. I've also owned a Oberndorf-made 1900 M96/38 and a Husqvarna M38 (I don't recall the datestamp).

German Oberndorf 1942 Kar98k 8mm Mauser
Of course, a "Mauser-guy" wouldn't be worth his salt without one of these. It's a Russian-capture, but a fine looking rifle and shoots great.

Turkish Ankara 1940 Model 1903 8mm Mauser
This rifle was an ill-researched online auction buy. Not in the greatest of shape, but a fine wall-hanger/place holder for a GEW98.

I look forward to meeting folks and chatting. Thanx.
