    Hard to tell from the photos if this will work with your barrel but you can give it a try.

    The first attempt to remove rust I use is scraping it off. Some guys insist on using softer metals like...

    I also concur that $650 is high but not out of line. Bayonets depending on arsenal and condition can run anywhere from $60-200, seem to average around $100, original frogs are very difficult to find...

    Watch ebay constantly. Set up the search, check it daily. I've eventually gotten most all of my missing hard to finds that way. May take months, may take years but eventually, one will show up.

    My thoughts were that it had a shell deflector that is now missing.

    I think if Nepal followed British standards which seems likely at least, this should have a white sling with a brass buckle on it, something I can't locate. Other option would be black sling with...

    I think this is four coats of BLO and then polished with a soft cloth. I did very little sanding to the stock other than the wrist area after I was done gluing. I did nothing to the brass other...

    Garand Cleaning Kit

    I picked up a 1944 dated cleaning rid case that has some rods and accessories in it but I suspect it is not correct. Anyone have a correct inventory for what is supposed to be in it along with...

    It's a smoothbore and what I can see looks good. I have no intentions of firing this. I can almost get my thumb inside the barrel. I did get the BLO to shine a bit and took some photos yesterday...

    Nepalese Brunswick Musket

    IMA put these on sale for $150.00 off about two months ago and I bit. The big selling point was the bayonet which by itself seemed almost worth the total cost for the two items.

    I was in a mood...

    Yes, we did have a discussion on one and you found it. It was my rifle. How I remembered the discussion but not that it was mine I'll attribute to my minor stroke. A 24/47 is a 24 that went through...

    ebay is your best bet. You can use either a 91/24 stock or a 91 stock and cut it down yourself. You'll need the appropriate metal also.

    6.5 x 54 MS conversions were done for the commercial market. These conversions were not done by Italy. I have heard they are nice rifles but have never seen one.

    Seems like we just had a discussion on one of these not that long ago. Whether a similar rifle was ever used by Turkey or simply found it's way into a Turkish import lot. Has original 1924 crest...

    I have a mild interest in French rifles but probably can't help a whole lot. I would say the least collectible if the "mystery rifle" If you don't know what it is, hard to collect it. Pros on the...

    Any type 30 bayonet would be appropriate but if you want to match something closer to when the rifle was built, you can get a last ditch type bayonet as well. They used what was on hand. Original...

    You pretty much need to have a book for Italian arsenal marks. They also changed over the years so the circle like you have may not be the same for a rifle 5 years older. I have a lot of Carcanos...

    The symbol on the butt stock is an arsenal mark. In that it matches the rifle, it's probably Beretta Gardone but it's too hard for me to make it out. It probably says and perhaps you can confirm by...

    I thought the brass was unusual but not unprecedented. There are several mid 1800's bayonets with brass cross guards. US Dahlgren, 1861 navy, Ames navy and British 1855

    The thing with the cadet rifles is that they weren't designed for bayonets. They don't have lugs. Bayonets are very rare and if I'm not mistaken, they use the socket type that goes over the sight...

    Good question. It isn't in Kiesling's book that I can find. There is a volunteer? bayonet listed but it isn't of this type and the muzzle ring is actually larger. Only thing I can suggest is...
