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: Something fishy in K98s

I do not know how Classic does it.. You can go to Gunbroker and find lots of his items for less... But each and every time they seem to sell out :)

Those cartouches look so fresh... also with no other dings in the stocks.. those rifles must have been owned by some real REMF..

Re: Lee-Enfield System

There were also even smaller denominations than the penny. That should put the difference in the actual purchasing power backwards adjusted to remove inflation into perspective. The "Old" Penny as opposed to the new "Pence" was a huge coin, about the size of a U.S. silver dollar. It actually was co...

Re: pic metal ship box with odd BCD 43 K98k

Does you box look like it had hinges on it at one time??? No hinges, the box is a thin sheet metal, not galvanized. Not a real heavy gauge like a Sears tool box, but still a sturdy box. Maybe the metal thickness was like a US GI ammo can, but not refined edges. It must have took a bit to dent it up...

Re: Lee-Enfield System

My catalog is a reproduction, but its undated. However I've seen similar covers that are original dated 1912. Factoring in inflation for 1912 sterling that 135 shillings would be a hefty £756.27 in 2018 money! Here's the opposite side of that page with all the specs. Lee Enfield Carbines specs20180...

By the way.. I like that darn thing, and would be willing to bid nicely for such a thing... but I like boxed items.. But I would have to have a bit of a bargain price to make me bite... I would not pay cutting edge museum type price... But that is just me... and this opinion is worth twice what you ...

Re: pic metal ship box with odd BCD 43 K98k

Honestly, its hard to have an opinion.. This looks like a one of a kind ship and box... I have never seen a metal box before,, Not when so many empty wooden ammo boxes lay about.. Or a custom box could be made easily.. But that does not make it real. or fake.. The Germans rebuilt rifles just like an...
