A decent priced .312 bullet to buy...........

Match kings are probably the best but too expensive for steel plate shooting @ 200 and I don't shoot at paper. I can get Hornady 150 SP but really want some 174 FMJ. Rifle is a No4 MK2.

Thanks,
Bill

Ammo is getting scarce.................

Try to find bulk 5.56 anywhere besides ctd, the biggest rip-offs in the industry. Just like 2013, people are not prepared during a crisis and the proffiteers are preying on the weak.

If I may ask, what makes this rifle a "5 Line?" Everything I have read suggests the mosin was manufactured as a 3-Line rifle. Was there a 5 line version?
5 lines of text between the Tula star and the 1928 date.

Re: CZ 52 problem??????????????

The first thing I did when I got the pistol home, I almost launched a pencil with the de cocker. No way will I ever be pointing it my way while loaded. Still a good reminder for people who don't know about the hazard with the safety.

My No4 Enfield rifles....................

I have two, a 1943 BSA MK I rifle with matching receiver, bolt and magazine and a 1953 BSA (I believe) MK II all matching rifle in like new condition. I just picked up the MK II from a 93 Y.O. WWII British RAF pilot who used it in Hi-power matches until his age and health said to stop back in 2010. ...

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

I have a bubba'ed 1942 Belgium made pistol that I really like, even with the stupid rib attached to the slide. Ex bullseye center fire pistol from the 1970's.

My bubba'd 1942 Hi-Power.............................

I bought this pistol from an estate and it was used as a center fire gun in bullseye pistol matches dating back to the early 1970's, back when ruining a prized bring back with a Bomar rib was the norm. All matching #'s and no import stamp. Paid $350.00 Two mags and case. Bill IMG_1023.JPG [attachmen...

Re: Czech Mod 98 for your enjoyment

I like that crest very much. It would look very nice on my Romanian contract VZ24.

I also ordered a 16.5 LB recoil spring as the original was slightly bowed.

Re: CZ 52 problem??????????????

Thanks guys. The problem is a weak magazine spring. I will be contacting Wolff and ordering a three pack. One mag works fine pushing up on the lever, the other one not so much. I already have a Harrington firing pin and rollers installed.
