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: Old surplusrifle.com Files

Slowbob 2 Thanks for the input. Yes this is a good warning, they are dated and some provide bad news/information. There is a wide variety of different authors. Jamie Magnum did most of the take down & reassembly ones- the ones most might still find useful. But others, like the two you mentioned are ...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Thank you, Sounds like I will buy from him if it is properly headstamped and correctly to specs after you see how your batch works. If he has 100,000 he may not mind if I buy one order of 250, if they work. I shall await your results and measurements. :clap: :clap: I wish Mr Hugh Long would provide ...

Pyramid Air is now offering both the Airsoft & BB version. You can select either the cheep plastic or better wood stock. The Airsoft model has a 90 day warranty, while the BB model has a 1 yr warranty. Both versions are the same price-$199 or $299 depending on the stock. Still no decent pictures. :d...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Some video, but some incorrect info., especially about the die. I use a CH4D .32 French Longue ( Mas) 7.65 pistol die set and RCBS special .32 french long shell holder ( RCBS shell holder #57170) and with shipping it came to $127 about 8 years ago. What I could never understand Prvi makes ammo for t...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Odd that Starline would produce & tool up a factor to spec, new brass cartridge headstamped for the .32 French long and not continue to offer it on their web page or company. It would sell like crazy. Ammunition producers would buy a ton & begin to put .32 French long into production. Very odd. Plea...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Is this new made to French specifications or some other brass cut to fit that only works half the time. When you get yours can you measure and compare it to an original steel case ? Could you post a few photos. Old french long starline brass was problematic, but this was around 1999 -2001? Swihartma...

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

Arrival date is becoming a joke. Moved back again to 7/26/2019. Looks like a more realistic arrival date of late fall or just prior to the Christmas rush for gifts is likely. Very odd. Lets hope a redesign for the collector marked is in store rather than a hold up on the plastic garbage BB carbine. ...

Re: 912 Round Crate - 7.62x54R Czech Surplus-low recoil

SG ammo inc are a class act and shipping is fast and arrives intact. That's about 36 cents per round with shipping. I miss the 10 cents per round days when it first appeared. It was approximately $1.50-2 bucks a box of 12. It shoots a Mosin like you are shooting a M1 carbine. They are in OK, so ship...

Re: Questionable attributes on a Norwegian K98

Very odd that the rifle did not have the " KAL 7.62 M/M " stamped on the barrel adjacent to the HAER receiver mark. Fantastic rifles & one Mauser type I want, but not have seen at WI gun showman the last 15 years. see the attributes on page 9 http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=191...

Re: Restoring filed stampings?

Did you see this info. Back in the day, coin collectors used acid to reveal the date on worn down buffalo nickels. Not really great, and it left a mark, but you could see the original date although the coin was worthless as a collectors piece. The correct acid formulas may allow you to see the origi...
