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.

Re: So you want to un-bubba a Model 1917. A parts list.

It really wouldn't be that difficult if you find one that has been cutdown. Its the wood work that would get tricky. But again not too difficult.
Only hard part would be mounting the front sight. As that would require turning the barrel down a few thousandths. Q

Re: So you want to un-bubba a Model 1917. A parts list.

Good information and lots of pics here. I have in mind doing one myself if I ever run into a chopped sporter with a nice bore. Recently there was one of these modified rifles on gunbroker. It was import marked by that's not a deal breaker for me. The thousand plus dollar price was.. :) https://forum...

Just found out William J Ricca has closed up shop.

He had a great wed site, text heavy full of information. It seems he has been in poor health the last couple of years and decided to close shop and sell o...

So you want to un-bubba a Model 1917. A parts list.

So you found a nice Model 1917, Remington, Eddystone or Winchester but bubba got to it first her are things to consider when buying a sporter. First off if the "ears" rear sight protectors are gone it's not worth it as far as a restoration project though it can still be a nice sporter. How is the ba...

Re: yugo shooting high

I am crippled up pretty bad, I would shoot my M1 rifle in my club's highpower rifle matches. I didn't wear any of the gear the other shooters used, just a t shirt between me and that buttplate. I picked up at least one good bruise each time as it would get away from me during the rapid fire string. ...

Re: Pics from before Springfield Sporters closed shop.

Thank you for posting the photo's. It's a shame that S/S stock is now in different hands. Greed will kick in and the prices will soar. They already did. Centerfure systems has a bunch of Mausers from them as well as bayonets. S S had things organized pretty well for the parts. For instance the mode...

Re: yugo shooting high

It should stay in place. And if you are good with a file it won't look to bad. Put a sight hood on it when you get it to the height you like and you are good to go.
But a factory sight will look better.

Re: yugo shooting high

Barley corn is the term for that type of front sight.
Like rapidrob wrote, use the jb weld, shape it and sight your rifle in. Then figure out which height you need.
I saw this and was going t suggest the Swede front sight as they are sold by height.
