Re: Firing Pin and Spring Question - Kar 98az

Cool find!

The Bolt on my old Kar 98AZ interchanged with my Large Ring Gew 98 so I would assume so.

Take care,

Cattus

Re: The FN Venezuelan Mauser

Sharps, I think she is a 24/30. No import marks are present. She came with a sling. It looked like someone (maybe the arsenal) had re-polished the receiver. I don't think the bolt matches but I don't mind about that as long as they shoot well. I plan on running cast bullets through my 7x57 rifles. I...

The FN Venezuelan Mauser

Howdy Folks!

I traded a friend for this short rifle. She has a nice bore and will be a good shooter.

I have been playing around with some Speer 160 flat point bullets and Vectan TU 5000 powder. The caliber is 7x57.

Here is a couple of shots for your enjoyment.

Re: Winter 2020 50 Yard Postal Shoot

The intent is what a soldier would use as in the field. Rucksack or backpack is ok.

Re: Cold Weather Shootin

I had a similar experience with my Hakim rifle. She does rather well below freezing. Must be the Swedish design and direct gas impingment action!

Winter 2020 50 Yard Postal Shoot

This was borrowed from AM Raider's Spring Match: 1. Only military surplus rifles may be used. Bolt action or semi-auto. The rifle must have been issued by a military somewhere on the planet. Generally this means anything that's a C&R or antique and is a military rifle. 2. Only iron/open sights may b...
