    To me maintenance doesn't mean constantly cleaning a firearm. Realistically cleaning is only really needed when accuracy or function is affected. Believe it or not carbon doesn't harm a firearm, some...

    Honestly not to be a jerk, but the only other real way to likely acquire one is to buy another 1893 with the magazine in it. I have had to do that with certain rifles in the past.

    Sometimes too...

    You might have the safety on. Pull the cocking ring back and rotate it 90 degrees so it is straight up and down. The bolt should then be movable.

    And is it worth the expense and effort when you could sell this rifle and get one in better condition ready to go?

    I recommend if you do decide to put a .308 bore on it, marking it on the barrel somewhere indicating that just for future shooters to know. Otherwise sounds like a worth while project.

    That's the only recommendation I have as well. Pretty hard part to find.

    100m with irons.

    I unfortunately am not as good a shot as I used to be, but I might start doing it more to get better again.

    You've basically just asked "I have different grades of gas for my car, what is the exact mileage for my vehicle".

    We are pretty much at the point now where no one serving even used the previous generations of weapons (except generally the fairly Snr NCOs and officers). My father and uncle were on some of the...

    Those same stories still come up to this day occasionally. Kinda fun shooting them down though.

    I agree with the sentiments of something different.

    But if you are choosing between the two, I personally would pick another K31, but I also happen to be very Swiss orientated. Better action, more...

    I suspect you won't have to do a thing to the rifle other than adjust the rear sight to the 300m setting. The Swiss did a pretty fantastic job on setting up these rifles and I have never seen one...

    I have done under 1" with irons, though it is hard and a lot of factors need to be in your favour (I would struggle to do that today, haven't practiced much recently). Personally I shoot better with...

    Solder could work, wouldn't be the best but it could work. I imagine there would be guys with those skills around back then too, thanks to copper piping still being the main choice for plumbing.

    Personally I tend to load 44grns of 3031 under a 198 grn .323 FMJ bullet for my 8mm Lebel rifles (a 1907/15 Berthier and a Gras 70/84/14). Works pretty good and never had any pressure issues or...

    So your going to want to check the caliber. Many of the sporterized ones were converted to .30-30. Otherwise I don't have much of a clue for parts.

    The Lange Vizier sight signifies the barrel was replaced on Peruvian Mausers, it was not how they originally started. This one might have just had a good enough barrel not to be replaced.
