Mine will move...can shove it left OR right. I have yet to fix it.
I will check my front sight again for movement but it seemed pretty solid. Just canted. How would one fix this problem?
Silver solder I suspect

Re: The FN Venezuelan Mauser

I bought an unissued FN 24/30 7mm Mauser from Century Arms in 1967.
It cost me $68.50

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

All I’ve tried so far is the 2400. Anybody try other powders that give good groups? The 20 grains of 2400 show no pressure signs and are giving 1300 FPS. I’m thinking I can increase the load for more velocity which would help in hunting deer. Thing the metallurgy of the 69/71 is strong enough for s...

NOT FAIR! You won our last rapid fire match with your SWISS rifle without any south paw modification. 😉

You read it WRONG ... he says it hits 5" high at 50-yards ...

If reading my printout ... you read it WRONG there too, as being a positive (+) number, that is 'high' ...
Right...I knew that. Senior moment. HIGH was his problem all along. That and zeroing his rifle at 25 yards

Re: SKS ballistics strangeness

Give up trying...that info looks suspect to me. NO way a scoped rifle zeroed at 25 yards will strike low on a 50 yard target. Sure the bullet drops the instant it leaves the muzzle, but it is launched at UPWARD angle to rise above the line of sight, to then fall down again to that line of sight...th...

Re: SKS ballistics strangeness

Ammolab, Thanks! OK, that makes sense...but I would have thought that a ballistics program that allows you to set your scope height (like Strelok, which I use) would account for that. But I don’t get that amount of change in Strelok even when i set the scope height to an extreme amount, like 6” abo...

Re: SKS ballistics strangeness

Your scope is mounted WAY above the rifles bore. That geometry puts a lot of triangulation of UP to hit center at 25 yards. That UP sends your bullet high until drop brings it down to a POI zero.

Thanks. From the can label I believe there are no stripper clips. It says 480 instead of 440 and says FARA LAME which I believe means no strippers.
Label is 380 rds and that is in boxes no clips. On clips you get 340 rds.

Re: recent sales price of mummy wrapped Enfield No.4

I will hold on to that pair of #4s. As a Century distributor during the era of those imports, I had a good number of consecutive #pairs and at least one triple consecutive # set. I took stacks of these rifles to Texas gun shows selling one or many for $189.00 each. I remember only ONE buyer that bou...

Re: recent sales price of mummy wrapped Enfield No.4

What would a factory wrapped German K98 or a verified new M1 Garand go for? More than $1700 for sure

Would my consecutive # pair of those #4s bring a extra premium?
