    I recall reading one of them (unsure which) apparently also has a small shoulder machined inside the cylinder to hold cartridges in the proper position without the moon clips allowing you to simply...

    Yes they were used in WWI, as were Gewehr 88s, etc. The issue isn't the barrels, I personally am pretty confident in the method they used to line them based off what I have seen a 1/2 thou fit over a...

    These rifles were made when metallurgy and understanding of pressures were in its infancy. They did a lot of things which would be considered very sketchy today at this time period. Generally, a lot...

    I think the Brits had it right with the EM2 to be honest, cartridge was the right balance of size and capability.

    This is exactly why I like collecting all the weird and less popular milsurps (Steyrs, Carcanos, etc.) simply because there is basically no fakes. Those few that are fakes are usually faked to try...

    I would say a Type 99 is likely going to be your best example. Chromelined bores on most of them which protected the bores (only the last ones didn't) vs most other Arisakas which didn't and usually...

    Interesting, he never had a issue with his apparently but it could just be the wear on the mags. I have heard the curved Bren mags were somewhat unreliable though, as it was designed for top feeding...

    My dad always said the best part of being the C2 gunner was the 30rd mags and half the time they wouldn't give him the C2 but he would still have the 30rd mags on him for use in the C1.

    I would figure it should be fine, or at least better than what it is if the muzzle is destroyed.

    Basically if the muzzle is trash counterboring until the damage is gone is the only option other than rebarreling to bring some accuracy out of the barrel.

    A M91 infantry rifle has a barrel...

    It is a gradual change, which makes sense if you consider how it would have been manufactured. Using a lathe or a rifling machine it would have gearing set up to progressively cut it. Very difficult...

    The Japanese specifically designed that rifle so you could only lower the striker by dryfiring. Nothing is wrong there.

    I have that book, and it is a excellent book, but only for the specific years and models mentioned. It isn't a good book for generalists or anyone looking for information outside that era.

    As mentioned on accuracy above, they weren't made to shoot needles at 1000m. It is one thing I always find a bit funny about shooting military surplus is due to how well modern firearms can shoot,...

    Well let me know how it goes, I have a couple books on Mosins but any quality book deserves a spot on my shelf.

    It is speculation but it is logical speculation. The SA mark isn't the only indication things spent time in Finnish hands. I have seen other rifles where there is no SA mark but clear indications of...

    The stock was likely a M91 Infantry rifle stock, but also likely Finnish made. Could have even been a M27, M28, or M28/30 stock as well due to the sling escutcheon. Unless there is any specific...

    So I have no conclusive thoughts on this. Some issues I am noticing are:
    1) No second sling swivel, this indicates to me the stock is a cut down stock from something else, the Soviets as far as I am...

    I am not sure about prices in the USA but usually in Canada you can find them in the 300-800$ CAD range generally. Doing a quick search I found one 69/71 variant for about 670$ shipped with taxes in....

    They are pretty cool rifles, basically the first repeating rifle to be standard issue. By 1871 the Vetterlis were the main issued rifle of the Swiss military. Which to put in perspective how much...

    That is damage, not a modification. You can tell by the way the metal looks grainy and the cut isn't clean. Personally I would not use that bolt, no idea of the actual safety of it just that I don't...

    Depending on what tooling you have available could change how you do it.

    Flat crowning is a option and the easiest.

    Lathe would be ideal, but could be a pain considering depending on how it...

    I wouldn't say there is particular collector value to any of those rounds. I suspect they shall all shoot the same, as it is Swiss made and they spent a lot of time making basically the finest...
