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: Carcano ww2 ammo pouch

Odd that they are not attached to the side, diving onto your stomach would be a little uncomfortable.

Thanks for posting

Nice Gew 1888 PA Rifleman!

I lucked into a Ersatz Bayonet when I lived in LA. It fit both the Gew 88 and Gew 98. Neat design
Any chance of a couple of pics of the bayonet :dance:

Re: MAB modele D

That is a later one with the "bayonet" style barrel bushing. Earlier ones had interrupted threads with a spring loaded catch. Yours is post war. Do you know when they changed the barrel bushing from spring loaded to bayonet? I'm looking at one at the moment and trying to determine year of manufactu...

Re: Differences in the K. Kale Turks?

K.Kale Mausers were manufactured new from 1940 at the Kirk Kale plant in Turkey. Since Turkey was neutral during WW2 most you will find in good to very good condition. Basically a M98 configuration with Turkish mods such as the stock and sights Not as "collectable " such as K98 and other Mausers fro...

Re: M1911 added to collection. (And pictures)

My personal view is keep the G11, they are the most accurate of all the rifles. Action is smoother and suit long distance shooting. I shoot both at 500mtrs and the 11 beats it hands down I even prefer shooting my K11 over my K31 anytime. K31 is good but the G11 is better although a little longer and...

Re: M1911 added to collection. (And pictures)

Is this mark on the rear receiver top on purpose or is this just a damage mark? Can any one give me a rough estimate what the value would be for this rifle. I’d like to think I didn’t get robbed.{/quote] That is a very poorly stamped "P" When soldiers "retired" from active service they were given t...
