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: 24th series Kokura Type 38

looks like a gorgeous stock and seems to shoot very well. Its a shame that the mum is gone. even one with the circle stamps is preferable to that botch job. At least in my opinion. What loads were you shooting out of it? factory or handloads? I’m shooting Speer 140 gr spitzers over 31 gr of 4064 Se...

Re: Garage Sale Kar98k

My garage sale deal a few years ago was a Steyr Gew88/05. Guy wanted to know in what caliber it was chambered. It was still crammed full of cosmoline and I didn’t have a cleaning rod to clean the bore and check the rifling so I declined his $200 offer. He was persistent so I wound up paying $125. On...

Re: VZ24 in 7mm

VZ24JC - lightened version - rather uncommon in that nice condition.

24th series Kokura Type 38

Picked this one up on GunBroker for $234 shipped. Great shooter - finish very good - stock not messed with. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171104/bb203901a31a2c645149e5492b387023.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171104/5138870bf56770bfa39f48b93e8e811a.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...

Added another SA large ring Peruvian 1909

Picked this one up on GunBroker for $210 shipped. Advertised as an Argentine 1909 with bad headspace. Could see it had a Lange Vizier so I knew what it was. Arsenal reconditioned Peruvian 1909. Formed 7.65x55 brass from 30-06 surplus to solve the headspace issue. Good shooter. Peruvian Pig sticker p...

Re: Chilean m1912 Steyr

My 1909 Argentine also shoots quite well. Unfortunately the previous owner rechambered it to 7.65x63. It is all matching[emoji20]. Yes these SA long rifles are superb shooters. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/16511909bfca5bc19470d511a854519b.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/57...

Chilean m1912 Steyr

I restored a Brazilian m1908 back in the summer with a $100 matching action from GunBroker as the basis. This rifle shot like a dream and I fell in love with the 7x57 cartridge. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/73cc828b467d34dc087f766f1d63bd7e.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/9...

Re: Stoked! M24/52c.

One of my most accurate rifles is an m24/52c. This 100 yd target from a local match has 5 of the 10 shots in one ragged hole 7 o'clock in the 10 ring.

M41 restoration

An elderly gunsmith buddy gave me a complete m41 action recently with the stock - cut off just above the lower band. Couldn't resist the challenge to restore it. Fond a nice looking barrel last week on eBay for $39 shipped. Springfield Sporters had the wood stock section I needed for $9. They also p...

Re: Why would anyone want an Enfield

My BSA 1916 arrived as a barreled action with the clip charger removed. A walnut DP stock set from Springfield Sporters featuring "early" metal made for an easy restoration...,except for replacing that darn clip charging guide.

Re: P14 project done

Love to see these old rifles restored. I also restored an Eddystone 2 years ago with my gunsmith buddy's help. Unfortunately mine had about 3" of the muzzle whacked-I guess to remove those ugly sight guards. My buddy fabricated a bored out "false muzzle" from a worn out m1917 barrel and threaded it ...
