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: Odd occurrance (E-Bay)

For the seller PayPal charges 2.9% + .30 for each sale. I think this is for using credit cards. It may not apply if you use funds directly moved from a bank account. On a $38 transaction that would come to a $1.40 charge. Ebay also charges the seller for items sold, but this is not done at the time ...

Re: M1 Garand

That is an M1D sniper base. The scope mount screws into the hole on the side. Difficult to say whether it is an original M1D or not, since it is a fairly often replicated rifle. I think only rifles that have come from the CMP are verifiable as "original" M1Ds. M1D production started towards the end ...

Re: Price on 1896/11

If it is in really great shape, I'd say that would be an OK price from a dealer. I'd expect to pay less from a private seller in the SE US.

Re: My Swedish m/96, dated 1904

Should be a good shooter. Probably not worth stripping the finish off the stock, since it also looks like it was heavily sanded. If you wanted to return it to more original condition you could replace the stock, but I'd probably just leave it alone, especially if the stock has matching numbers.

Re: Ordering from Numrich Question?

Don't know if this still works, since I have not tried it in a while, but here is how I've done it in the past: Call them up (don't remember the number), and ask for the free shipping code on the phone. You get the code, then hang up and use the code to order online.

Re: "Mummy wrapped" Enfield #4/Mk2(F) value??

Going rate seems to be $1000 plus in my area (SE US). One thing I will mention is that some guys who are unwrapping these guns are finding corroded and rusted parts. I don't think the wrapping was ever intended for long term storage. On one had you want to keep it wrapped to maintain value, on the o...

These Swedish rifles are definitely addictive! Mechanically excellent, accurate, a wide variety of shooting platforms, and low recoil.................what more could you ask for. You just want to have one of each. :think:

Very nice, and very rare rifle. You got it for a great price. I have a CG 80 that is really fun to shoot. Post up some shooting results after you have a chance to get it to the range.

Re: 1903 a3

Looks like a nice original M82 scope in good condition. The M82 scopes are getting harder to find, and typically sell for $1000 plus. Those scopes were pretty simple. I don't think there would be any problem adjusting windage or elevation on it. If it doesn't work you can send it to Iron Sights. The...

Re: Who else sent the PW to CMP for a 1911?

I put my packet into the lottery. Nice to hear that there were just over 17000 versus some predictions of up to 100,000. According to the rules, just about everyone that put in an accepted packet will get a chance to buy one either this year or the next 2 years assuming the CMP is able to get anothe...

Re: Swedish M41B

Very nice. Looks like an arsenal replacement stock (are there any markings?), and that is a plus IMO. Scope mount matches the base, and that is good. Many of theses rifles will not have other matching parts, so if other parts don't match I wouldn't sweat it. Scope looks like it has a fair amount of ...

Re: Argentine Model 1891 Infantry Rifle & Cavalry Carbine At The Range

Beautiful guns. Surprising you are shooting better with the Carbine. I sold off my Argentine collection, 91, 09, and Carbine and of course I'm regretting it. I do remember that the Carbine was a shoulder buster, so I don't miss it as much as the others. :lol: For me the 09 was a tack driver, and the...

Re: CMP vintage sniper match rifle

Are you going to the national matches this year?
I wish I could, but not this year. I think the vintage sniper matches are this weekend.

This rifle was built by a local guy, but he's built a number of them and knows what he is doing.

Re: CMP vintage sniper match rifle

I've got several Fecker, Lyman and Litschert external adjusting scopes. Unfortunately neither the Fecker nor the Litschert have their magnification marked on them. Is your Fecker marked with its power? At any rate, I'm thinking of using the adjusting scope rings from the Fecker, Lyman or Litschert ...
