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: New Walnut K-31

I can see why you grabbed it, that stock is stunning Very nice carbine. Thanks, guys. I've always loved Swiss rifles for their accuracy and precision. My first two milsurps were Big5, beech-stocked K31's. The beech stocks were chewed up, as many of the beech stocks are, but those rifles could shoot...

Re: CMP vintage sniper match rifle

I got behind on this project, but finally received the scope back from Hilux, supposedly repaired. Last week I took the rifle to range, where I mounted the HiLux scope and found that the cross hairs were canted about 45 degrees off plumb. Damn! Has anyone else experienced this problem? I called HiLu...

New Walnut K-31

Recently picked up a walnut stocked K31. The grain in the stock called to me, although I'm having some difficulty capturing the striping in all it's glory with pictures. It came with an older Tasco "World Class" 6-24 scope and Swiss Products aluminum clamp on scope mount. https://i.imgur.com/9mwzec6...

Re: Ljungman reloading

Got out to Sac Valley Shooting Center this week and spent some time with some rifles, including my second Ljungman. Shot it at 200 yards, with the following results... @200 yards, as usual, decent group and a flyer. Main group about 3" or 1.5 MOA, with the flyer, about 4.75" The sights were off, obv...

Re: Faux Swedish M41B CMP vintage sniper match rifle...updated with range report

I made another trip to Sac Valley earlier this week for some 200 and 300 yard shooting. I changed my 6.5x55 load slightly and got a somewhat better result. The shot down at 5 o'clock was a pulled shot. I knew it was off and where it it was going to hit before looking at the target. For reasons not e...

1903 Springfield Griffin and Howe 28" target rifle

I ran across a rifle that looks similar to a 1903 Springfield Heavy Barrel (Style T) target rifle, but purports to have a 28" barrel installed by Griffin and Howe. The stock is obviously different than a Springfield target stock and kind of looks like it could be a G&H stock, but I'm coming up blank...

Re: Faux Swedish M41B CMP vintage sniper match rifle...updated with range report

Very nice shooting! I sold my "Faux" M/41B about a year ago, and kicked myself until I found another one recently. Another Swede aficionado had built one from an M96 with a very good bore. He used the Accumounts mount and also put a Weaver K4 scope on it. I had a spare AJACK scope, so I switched ou...

I'll be glad to help out.
I wish I could use the cheek piece you bought but being left handed,I cannot.
These are custom made. You could probably have one made for your left side.

Well, I'm wondering how much of a limitation on getting good groups the Weaver 4x scope is.

Low magnification and no parallax adjustment.

Re: Faux Swedish M41B CMP vintage sniper match rifle...updated with range report

That is great shooting! The two at 7 o'clock were the result of the cross being canted to the left slightly. The scope being so high above the bore will cause this and is a learned lesson to really make sure the scope is level. I use the horizon behind the target to verify the cross hairs are level...
