Re: Air soft, Type 38 Arisaka

:lol: :roll: :lol: :roll: I never knew that airsoft guns this expensive existed. I was into airsoft for a time. Pneumatic air tank driven guns called "Polarstars" could easily go over $2,000 to build. They are the fastest, farthest and most accurate shooting airsoft rifles, but so much money to be ...

Re: Value of this 1932 Izhevsk Mosin

Is it numbers matching (Magazine floorplate, buttplate, bolt and barrel should be numbered), and if they are, how were they matched (Stamped or line out EP'd force match)? Stock finish looks original to me, but that billboard import mark on the receiver is a turn off. If it matches I'd say $275 arou...

FAT42 M41 Carcano

M41 Carcano rifle produced by FAT (Terni) in 1942. Italy's return to a long rifle in 6.5x52 Carcano, but without gain twist rifling. Slightly shorter than the 1891 long rifle. This example is in pretty nice shape for a Carcano from my experience. It has a slight crack in the stock at the butt, but t...

Re: Wire Wrapped 1950 No1 Mk3*

Got the Grande launcher cup in the mail a few days ago. Cleaned it up and mounted it on the rifle for some pictures. I believe from the markings that mine is a British made cup. Finish wear on the cup makes it look almost like it came with the rifle!

I have two on the way currently (nearly $60 for the pair) so I can finally fire this rifle with the few rounds of 8mm Lebel I have haha.

Re: odd ball Gew 88 pic heavy

That’s a great looking Gew 88! I would love to have one in more original German configuration like that than my Turk. Hard to find them anymore from what I’ve seen.

I have 50 rounds of custom made ammunition that came with the rifle when I bought it. I will post pictures of it later.

Re: Turkish Gewehr 1888

I would need more photos to be sure , but your rifle looks like one of the ones sold to Turkey after the war by the Czechs . The features show that . Also the rifle was converted to fired Any German ammo from stripper clips , both P-88 and S ammo . Thanks for the info, what more would you need to s...
