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: Springfield Armory M1 Carbine, Blowback CO2 .177cal BB Rifle

PA review # 41 and guess what- a wood stock version and the problem... You got it. A defective magazine. By Jesse from USA on 2019-10-17 Comments Adding an update to my previous review. As stated, the wood version is by far a more enjoyable shooting experience. The only issue I have with the rifle i...

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

U.S. M1917 bolts were not numbered to the M 1917 rifle at the factory. The serial number was on the receiver. However, many rifles have numbered bolts had the numbers added by other country users. I am not sure if late war rebuilds with a park finish had a number added. My Eddystone has its number o...

Re: GEW 98 need year made by serial number please.

The year should be on the top of the receiver with the name of the manufacturer. There were 10 different makers. Carbine or long rifle? Unfortunately Storz in "Rifle & Carbine 98" 2006 provides production numbers by company per year, but no serial numbers. I have never seen lists by serial numbers. ...

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

I have seen at least seven old beat 1917s that closed on my field gauge. I never purchased these. My CMP 1917s do not close on a no go. Two others fall in-between closure on a no go, but do not close on a Field gauge . The rifle bore and chamber as well as a bolt must be spotless when you do a heads...

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

Interesting, the bolt will not close on a go gauge, yet works on factory ammo ok. I wonder if the bolt number matches the rifle? Maybe an out of spec GO gauge? I never had a M1917 with a bolt that tight? Generally, most M1917s have use/wear, and close on a no go and more than a few close on a Field ...
