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.

1916 Russian Contract 1895 Winchester Musket

#1 Post by Miller Tyme » Mon Oct 30, 2017 8:56 pm

this is a 1916 Winchester 1895 Musket / Russian Contract Rifle, one of approx. 300,000 rifles Winchester delivered to the Czar between 1915-1916. This rifle also was shipped to Spain during the SCW and has the Spanish MP8 flaming bomb Cartouche stamped on the butt stock.

The bluing is about 20% and the bore is dark but has good rifling. The butt stock has a spliced repair and what appears to be a rack number ( 10 ) stamped on it. The hand guard appears to be a replacement possibly by the Republican's during the fighting between 36-39. The action is crisp and it cycles dummy rounds nicely though I am still debating on how much range time, if any it will be receiving.

Ok, this is nuts. I am running out of ink. I wish I had your luck and still had money to buy. Never found such nice stuff back in the day when I hunted the gun shows. I had some real good finds, but your stuff is really high end, rare finds. But recently, I was also as lucky as one can get, had a stroke and came out of it in 4 days. Normal, so that was my luck used up for the year. I guess as us old guys get health problems the real good safe QUEENS are coming to light. We can not take it with us. Thanks for posting such nice photo details. I am printing these out to add to my reference binders. May be on the hungarian sniper you can post the sling markings and rod markings. :pray: These rifles are great photographic records for the new forum. :clap:
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
