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: Va has fallen.

In addition to the passed bills that Tommy mentioned is a Universal background check bill. This will really impact Gun Shows here. Part of that bill is an exemption for antique firearms, but an exemption to that . Subject to interpretation, it might not allow pre 1898 receivers that fire cartridges ...

Re: My Chilean 1895

I got a Ludwig Lowe marked carbine last year in decent shape for 500. They call it The Mule for good reason. Bore is decent. 1 number does not match.

Re: Went for ammo...but

I recently saw an ad in our large gun range classifieds for 45 ammo. It was from an older shooter that I knew that was going to all 9 mm. Picked up several hundred rounds of quality factory HP and FMJ for better than going price. Had a great talk with him and got to handle a CZ with a butter smooth ...

Re: Va has fallen.

I live in Virginia, and am a member of VCDL, NRA, and GOA. All three have done a good job of sending out several posts a week, or one a day. These posts have click on emails to send to our State Senators and Delegates reminding them of our positions. I do that every day. Also, they send out phone nu...

Re: So is anyone going to the Wanenmacher's Tulsa Gun Show

How I wish we had gun shows like this in our area! 4200 tables, I would have to bring a set amount of cash, no credit card and a Prius.😐
Most of our shows are under 100 tables. If we travel 4 hours, 250 tables.
I hope you find someone to go with or meet up with. J

Re: Dick's Sporting to remove guns.

Our local funny named version closed 2 years ago. The Field and Stream has been getting smaller and smaller in the gun department for one year. I stopped going after my friend quit being the gun shop manager. I still go and look every month or so. Our town of 100k people only has two gun stores now,...

Re: Scarce

Thank you Aaronbern,
I ended up buying one in excellent condition from Edelweiss Arms. They were good to work with,and direct shipped to me. That must have been what it was like pre 1964.

Re: Schmidt-Rubin 96/11

I see that I posted a Swiss rifle under Swedish. Perhaps my eyes need checking. Speaking of which, I really need a scope for any shooting over 50 yards. Can anyone suggest a mount that would not damage the rifle? Suggestions for scopes would be appreciated also. It looks like a scout would be needed...

Schmidt-Rubin 96/11

Hi all,
I had a good buying experience on a pre 1899 96/11 from Edelweiss Arms.
Matching numbers with the advertised 5/5 bore condition and 5/5 stock. Came with muzzle cap and period or correct sling. Paid a fairly high price, but did get as advertised , quickly and professionally. No FFL.

Scarce

Hi all I have looked a bit for a 96/11 for sale. They do seem hard to find in decent condition. I am really looking for antique, pre 1899 ones. I have not seen one at several gun shows. Online ones that I have seen are sold out. Any tips on where I might run into one? I considered other Models, but ...

Charles, I did it once in about 10 try’s. I seem to remember using a brake spoon, after 9 rounds of bad words and one bout of asking forgiveness. Not sure how I did it, but reminds me of a Ruger Mark 3. Fireman Bob on the Appleseed Forum is very good at 22 rifles. He wrote a manual on 10-22’s. He mi...

Hello from Virginia

Hi all, I love reading this forum! So much knowledge in one spot. Currently, there are only 4 historics in my safes. An SKS with all the attachments, a Lowe Argentine 1891 Carbine in better than average condition, and a Russian Mosin with 1939 date and a 95 on the receiver. All are matching numbers....
