Re: Carcano 1891 long rifle 200 meter accuract test-several loads

In my Carcano collection this 1891 has a .265 bore. It is the tightest bore of any of my Italian firearms. I bought the rifle from an estate sale decades ago and the rifle appeared to have never been issued. I had not shot original surplus ammo as most are in poor condition with primers or brass tha...

Carcano 1891 long rifle 200 meter accuract test-several loads

After much testing by other members of my club, NM MILSURPS using 6.5 Carcanos as well a 6.5 Jap rifles we found that many of the loads are just too fast at our ranges altitude of 7,000 ASL. I took my 1891 long rifle out today with 7 different loads to prove one way or another which would come close...

Re: How to reduce the trigger pull on a CZ50/70 pistol_ Photos Restored

It took awhile to find all the photos again, I'm missing two which were not important for the replacement of the springs.

Re: NM MILSURPS normal July shoot.

The practice went very well will all members shooting good scores. This Saturday is the match. 5 "snap-shooting" targets at unknown distance and the rolling target. I try to switch up my rifles/carbines as much as possible just to see which work out the best for the type of match. I'll be shooting m...

Mauser 1910/14 .25 ACP range report rolling target & 25 yds

Having being the first time I shot the pistol for real accuracy, I can say the pistol did not let me down. To say to shoot the little Mauser rapid fire was fun would do the pistol injustice. A shooter would have to really screw up to miss the target .Recoil is nil due to the ergonomics of the pistol...

Re: Mauser 1910/14 magazine quest and test firing

Thank you for the links. At the turn of the last century, more folks were shot and killed by the .25 ACP pistols than any other caliber in it's time. Millions of .25 ACP ( 6.32mm) pistols had been made. With the Mauser having one of the longer barrels of the issued .25 ACP barrels, ( 3 1/4") having ...

Mauser 1910/14 magazine quest and test firing

I bought a Mauser 1910/14 pistol from a dealer in NJ and he turned out to be a shyster seller. While the pistol was like new,made in June 1924, he removed the original magazine and substituted a Triple-K magazine that did not/could not possibly work. The magazine has to trip a slide release and trip...

Re: New here from nebraska

Welcome to SRF. I hope you find the parts you need as the little rifle is not all that common.
I have one of my Grandfathers pistols and it too means a lot to me.

Pistols will shoot 6 rounds at the rolling target and 20 rounds at the five snap shooting targets. Shooters are to take no more than 1 second to "snap-shoot" a...
