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: In Praise of the Gew 1888

Cool! Three regiments worth of service in your rifle before going to the Turks!

Neat bayonet.

Re: In Praise of the Gew 1888

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. Some of my rifle team students show up on Saturdays to shoot the classics. Here is picture snapped by one of my students of me with my prized Gew 88. I let him shoot it along...

Try about 11-12 grains of Trailboss, that's what I use in most of my 30 to 8mm surplus rifles.
Good to know!

In Praise of the Gew 1888

Hello Everyone, I am always astounded how well some of these old guns shoot. One of my favorites to shoot is the Gew 1888. Mine was made in Danzig in 1895. I developed a load using a 241 grain FP gas checked bullet that I casted from the Lee Maximum Mold. I used AA 5744 powder. We shot the Gew 1888 ...

Re: The Old Forum.

The biggest change with this site is that it became a collector's forum.

Rapidrob and a handful of others are the only shooters left.

Re: Saturday Morning Target Shooting

Thanks Curtis!

If we won't grow our sport, it will die.

Saturday Morning Target Shooting

Hello everyone! Today I met some of my rifle team students out at our local 300 yard range. We shot an Argentine 1891, a Bulgarian Steyr 1895 rifle, a Persian Mauser and a Finn M39. These young men were easily hitting the 300 yard gong with some spotting and minor sight adjustments. All loads save t...
