although difficult to see, my 88/05/38 seems to have the seam as well.
I can feel it when I run my finger across it.

Re: GEW 88/05 Issue.....

Re: BAR opinions

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sIVTDo2Xno0 This guy makes good videos but some of his opinions are questionable I do not think the BAR was obsolete by WW2. I think the BAR in itself may not have been obsolete but the tactics in which it was originally designed for has long been surpassed. WW2 in mos...

Re: Picked up a 1899 M96

Good score, nice and original

Re: 1886 Steyr, "The Kropatschek"

Okay Vandle, I might be able to recommend a fix for you. I thought it might be a coil spring, but it is a leaf spring. Those can be made from steel banding material to keep heavy packages together, like on a pallet. You can bend it by hand and likely grind it to whatever size you need by hand on a ...

Re: 1898 krag sporter

Always do what you desire and want... But many times bringing a gun back to the original cost can cost more then just going out and buying one in original condition...
