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: Type 30 Arisaka price check

72 USMC, thanks for the response! Been searching old auctions and have only seen Blank firing training rifles and beaters. I have noticed top grade Type 99s and 38s seeem to be going pretty high at shows around here.

Type 30 Arisaka price check

What would y'all say is a fair pice for a Type 30 Arisaka in very good + condition? Don't think it has cleaning rod nor does it appear to be a training rifle.It definitely the nicest exampl I have personally handled.

Re: Type 99 bullets test at 500 yards...Range Report

I have been using IMR 4895 42.5 gr with 174 BTHP Hornady bullets. Had excellent results at 500 meters on steel ram.Shoots well out of my Toyo Kogyo and Kokura Type 99s. Forget which series the are have to dig them out. On aside note Rapidrob, used your load for 6.5x55 in both M96 and M38 rifles with...

Re: My CMP 1911A1

It certainly does have that new "old gun" feel all surplus weapons have to me. Can't wait to get to range with it, think I'll put her through the paces against my 1917 USGI S&W revolver.

My CMP 1911A1

Recieved my pistol yesterday and am pretty satisfied with it. It has a Colt frame serial # has it 1942 with correct WB inspector mark. Slide is Colt as well. I removed firing pin stop and unfortunately it doesn't have a serial number present. I really didn't expect it to match but would have been ni...

1903 A3 REAR SIGHT APERTURE MOVES.

Just wondering if anyone has experience fixing the rear aperture on a 1903a3. I have had the rifle for some time now and finally had time and distance to actually shoot. I set up a target and after a few shots thought I was having a real bad day shooting. I then noticed the sight had moved to bottom...

Pierced primer in Trapdoor.

I have a really nice 1888 Trapdoor rifle that I finally got around to shooting with Black Hills 405 FBL ammo. I was able to hit 500 meter gong regularly and 300 was almost automatic. I bought another box and I went out to shoot a few months later. After a few rounds I took a break and noticed that t...

Re: Martini Henry Mark 1

Thanks for all the replies! I can't wait to get her up and running.
I am indeed lucky to have a wife that although is not into firearms per se but, enjoys seeing me happy. I have several nice rifles and pistols that I would never have got with out her encouragement and prodding.
