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: My fall into South American Mausers

Nice rifles, OAC. I'm a fan of the SA Mausers myself. If you have to fall into something, you could do alot worse than South American Mausers. x2 they seem to have an aurora about them. Very old school design with most of them have beautiful crests on the receivers which you don't find on later mod...

Re: USMC rebuild Garand ("O-66")

Very nice rifle. Unfortunately here in Oz Semi auto anything is heavily restricted. Very few opportunities to hold one let alone shoot it.

The bore gauge in the first picture, never seen one like it. Who manufactures/sells them?

Cheers

I think C and Arsenal is a wonderful resource. He covers a lot of great rifles, and it's easier for some folks to wrap their heads around some of the history when it is being dictated. I wish my girlfriend would handle my rifles like Mae.

They are a great resource

Re: Is this worth wasting my time for??

If anything it gives you practice on doing this type of repair and if it doesn't work out then nothing is lost except a little time.
Maybe Candyman can give a few tips here

Re: FN1922 Brazilian Carbine

Hi DWM

The bore is very dark and frosty.
I have seen better but will be taking it out on the range next week
and see if putting a few rounds through it makes a difference.

Have scrubbed the bore with solvent but only slight improvement.
I'm not expecting miracles.

Cheers

Those pre-WW1 Mausers are the best.
