    I used my Krag rifle at The Western Games a few years back. Lots of odd stares and curious folks. The rifle ran just fine no hiccups at all. Rapid string was different with the rapid re-load. ...

    They used a solid Ball load and a Buck and Ball loading in .69 cal muskets in the Civil War. You do realize small children loaded almost all of the ammunition used in the Civil War. Child labor was...

    The US Army loaded up a lot of 7.62mm "Duplex" for use in Viet Nam. Two bullets loaded into the 7.62mm case. Both were light weight bullets and the idea was to use them in Mini-guns out of...

    I recall reading the US Army re-barreled several Trapdoors into .30-40 configuration. At lower velocities all ran well. However, as they approached higher velocities the gun began to unlock...

    The US Army used to have .50 cal sniper rifles. So many guys developed detached retinas that the Army got rid of that gun and the whole notion of .50 rifles. Detached retina is not a joke and a...

    98 bolts are on Ebay everyday. Buy a new bolt and do NOT have a gunsmith weld up that old bolt. That old bolt was brittle and broke after falling on the floor. I would not trust my eyes with...

    We are talking about a GEW98 WW1 rifle, aren't we? Perhaps a photo or two of the rifle will work. The South American Gew98's are very different from the German Army issue rifle. A photo should...

    DCM did not re-build anything. They handled paperwork. It is what it is. A nice keeper and in good condition. Lots of '03's ended up in training units, but this rifle doesn't look beat up. ...

    Likely a DCM rebuild post WW2. Remington bolt and 03-A3 stock. Should make a nice shooter, not too much collector interest there, however. Nice, clean M1903 and a keeper.

    Stamped trigger guard and late (WW2) bolt. Odd collection of parts. The story would be interesting, but it looks to be very old and probably no one is still around to tell the story. Entire...

    I have heard they loaded a used 170gr flat base bullets for NM use. I don't think anyone makes that sort of bullet days but the odd box of those bullets does still turn up.

    I had a buddy, now passed on, who was in heavy combat in Manila 1944-45. He told me he saw piles of Japanese equipment and US equipment being sorted by US Ordnance folks. The Japanese stuff was...
  18. use in SA

    I had one years back. I was told by someone wiser than me that it for all intents a factory second. That only SA could work on it. Sounds reasonable to me. It was a nice shooter and ran very well.

    Lee will make custom molds for you. But they are crazy busy now. Try lead bullets and down-load the charge. A few years back the Reno Gunshow had 3 (yes, 3!) T guns for sale. Good luck.

    OK guys FYI time. The Gew88 is a small ring gun, so the barrel on the Gew88 is a small ring barrel. That barrel will indeed fit a small ring Kar98a. But, hold on as the Gew88 barrel is a...
