    Powders like IMR 3031 or IMR 4895 will fill the bill for you with the 6.5 Japanese. I have found that 3031 does deliver better accuracy in the 6.5 then 4895. The older type cartridges like the 6.5,...

    Ah I knew it was something too long. But it was also in spam cans too wasn't it? I do not remember it being called commercial ammo.

    There is not a great collectors value in thes. Most boxes in prime shape and unopened go for no more then $20 a box. People do not realize how many billions of rounds of ammo were loaded in WW2. One...

    You have some problems with your carbine. Start with the filled sling well. Then if you want an original front and rear sight then a type 2 front sight and type 1 rear. Be advised just about all if...

    Add this seller to the faker list. Look at the barrel band area of the stock and what do you see? It is NOT worth the $5000 bid so far. Someone is going to be upset when they finally win it and get...

    While your serial number is in the first 10,000 it has the later slide marking. The very early ones do not have MK 1* stamped on them. Does your hammer have II stamped on it? Yours may be too early...

    You don't need a tool for the castle nut that holds the piston in the gas cylinder. Use a good set of pliers to just tighten it down a bit. NOT supper hard as you can crack the cylinder. Put it back...

    That may just explain all of the problems as its a commercially made carbine and not USGI. They were the New Inland or Auto Ordnance of its day. Some good but more with problems.
