Re: Schmidt Reuben K11

That's a beautiful specimen!

I've been wanting a long Swiss rifle to keep my K31 company. I've been dragging my feet because all of the "long" spots in my safe are occupied.

I'd have to drill a hole in the top of the safe for the muzzle to stick out... :roll:

Congrats.

Re: Yugo M67 Sealed Crate Value

I guess I'm jaded because I am already sitting on plenty. That's why I ask you guys.

So, I should add another ten bucks? :lol:

Yugo M67 Sealed Crate Value

Fellow close by offering the 1120 count crate (which is w/ stripper clips?). Wants $450, which I'm not paying.

Thought I'd start him around $300 and concede $350 if it works out.

I calculated that $336 is 0.30 per round and what I'd call fair for brass on strippers.

Sound close?


Thanks.

M1895 Nagant, '32 Tula

Just recently snagged my first ever sealed can of Nagant ammo, so I dug the revolver out of the safe for a bit of sunlight. I hemmed and hawed over getting one when they were common for $100, then they disappeared. About 2 years later, I scored this one face to face for about the same, so I feel for...

The 2020 "Make Surplus Rifles Great Again" Challenge

When I stumbled into my first surplus rifle, a "Bubba'd" Polish Mosin Nagant M44, it was this forum that set me straight. Showed me what I had and filled me in on the lay of the land for milsurps. Since, I've come to rely on the collective knowledge found here to compare and contrast, to gain a bett...

Re: Milsurp Aquisition In These Modern Times, Russian SKS

I thought all the SKS rifles this late had chromed bores. I've not cleaned it yet, but it does not look chromed to me.

Re: Russian SKS value?

It's matching and very clean. It is import marked. I haven't pulled it fully apart for the big cleaning, but opened it up enough to verify condition.

Re: Russian SKS value?

Thanks. I took a rather circular path of trading to get to it, but I estimate I paid about $650. I'm glad I wasn't raked over the coals in my haste...

It's very clean and looks well cared for. I haven't torn it down yet, just popped it open enough to make sure that the moving parts were there and shiny.
