Re: 1916 Mauser external pitting safe?

Less than 50% through the metal I would have no problem shooting it. From those pics it looks less than 20% through.

Import marks on firearms lists

Federal law does not require the billboard import mark that Century puts on Mosins. That is done because their local ATF agent told them that is how it must be done and they won't challenge him.

The Barrel is not a 1940's replacement , that is a date code for the sight replacement . The mounts and scope were added much later . The bo...

Re: Persian Model 30

Persian Mausers Can be a confusing due to all the models and inaccuracies about the markings. There are both Czech Made and Iranian Made Rifles of the same models that are nearly identical, because Iran made them on Czech Machinery. All rifles are in 8x57mm aka 8mm Mauser as far as I know. This is w...

Re: Century buys SSporters
