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 rifle.

I have a KNIL Hembrug 1921 Long Rifle but not as nice as yours

Mine has that "used and abused" look about it

I went with the one that doesn't hurt your back so much when on a bicycle.

Those Dutch bicycle troop guns with the wood covering on the magazine are so cool, reminds me of the plant of the apes rifles... Makes me wonder of if that is how those darn apes got their stock design from.. Gun wise they just reused M1 Carbines that were still working 2K years in the future...

I'm not entirely sure but a suggestion from another forum that it may indicate that the rifle was used by the Landstorm which are secondary units (auxilary)

I have a carbine which has the letter P in a circle which indicates a rifle used by the police force

If you hadn't mentioned the wood covering the magazine, I would have never noticed it, or known it was a legit modification. I learned something new today, thank you.
