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

Consider a DENIX non firing replica is $270, the wood version Springfield armory BB carbine is in the price range at $300; and at around 270, the Dendix has a lack of attention to details & markings. Kind of goofy looking. My money would be on the wood BB version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXG...

Re: You won't believe this is for sale?

One must have an original "German" Mitchell box of 8mm to display with the Mitchell's K98k. That way the story is total BS. :lol:

Re: Aim Mosins

Does anyone know where these came from and it is odd that the cases all are Tula and some nice hexes to boot. Any history about this batch of Mosin Rifles? No mention of counter bores. Some nice examples. I wonder when these will show up at gun shows. Dealers must get a real price brake. I can not s...

AIM SURPLUS does their Hex Tulas a little different ( $359): Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 7.24.06 PM.png Between Aim or Classic this might be a good time to pick up a cherry Tula, not the $49 of 2001-2002, but prices have gone up and Classic seems to offer more selection possibilities. Too bad the impo...

Then shipping and FFL transfer fee ????? :snooty: :doh: :hand: One m...

Re: Type 99 Short Rifle cleaning rod

I am not sure of this seller or the products , but reproduction rods are not the same metal quality and most bend easy because they are not the same steel as an original. Threads may or may not work. Some like this one have a high gloss cheep finish, other brands have a more original finish. You nee...

Re: 1891 M91 eyeballs jumped out it's so nice

It would be neat to get that lucky at a gun show. It seems to happen when old collectors die and they family dumps stuff to really sell, not to slowly sell it a high prices. There idea of fun is not to sit at guns shows, rather get rid of dad's old junk fast.

Re: What war is this belt from

odd that it was hammered down on the edges to form a square buckle. Kinda destroyed an original.
