    Speaking of which, just found this ad after I made my last post. Got a chuckle out of the description, it is the truth.

    Good evening,
    I have a clean, unaltered m91/30. Has sling, bayonet and...

    Just ordered it. Not sure if this works for everyone but because today and tomorrow is Amazon Prime Day, I got $5.00 for a book purchase which brought it down to $19.32. I also had some other Prime...

    Value goes up with supply and demand. The supply dried up, there aren't any new ones, at least decent ones, coming into the country. Demand remains high, why I don't know but it is what it is. ...

    1853's in many cases were sleeved so they would fit the Martini Henry. Everything else was left the same so the inner diameter of the socket is pretty important.

    Most Steyr rifles sold in the US have been upgraded to 8x56R which is pretty easy to get. Quite a bit o 1938 surplus around and Privi is making it also. But $500 is way too steep. I know prices...

    I haven't posted a yard sale purchase yet this year. Been a little light on the military stuff but I did get one significant item at a bargain price. Current issue US Kevlar helmet with night...

    I had to buy my wife a PPK or she wouldn't carry it. Another James Bond junkie. It's a US made Walther, Smith and Wesson I believe, under contract.

    No to both. They are seeking close to $300 for those things. If I blunder upon one in a junk bin at a yard sale, you bet. With me, you never know. I've gotten some nice things at yard sales.

    I get that. I said earlier I didn't have any training bayonets but I remembered I had several Japanese training bayonets after they popped up on an ebay search. They look almost like the real ones,...

    I can't say one way or the other from those photos. Doesn't look like it has much finish at all that I can see. But some photos are showing dark blue where the next is showing nothing in the same...

    They are obviously not nearly as common as 38's or 99's. Those you can get at any gun show pretty easily. 30's tend to show up at auctions and gun shops more than shows and it may take months...

    I don't think so. I don't have all the regular bayonets yet. I did check ebay for others and realized I do have a bunch of Japanese ones. I was thinking more along the lines of the rubber or bendy...

    US Ontario Training OKC-3T Bayonet

    Spotted one of these on ebay last night and did a search to find availability and found this site which was less than the ebay price. Niche piece I suppose but as I don't have any training bayonets,...

    Lot of money to spend on something you aren't sure about. Sort of difficult to state an opinion on bluing without any photos.

    It doesn't look that bad. Looks like a rifle that escaped the refurbishment process and/or went to Vietnam.

    It's not a 38 or a 99. It's a training rifle. Made by various companies on the cheap, never intended to be fired. It's strictly used for rifle drills and possibly bayonet practice. This is not...

    Since you have two, take them both apart and compare the pieces being careful not to mix them up. See if something looks different.

    All my rifles are buried and too difficult to access to check. Perhaps you didn't get all the gunk out of it and instead packed it in the bottom. Just a thought. I doubt you broke it cleaning it...

    Bolt issues seem to be common with Arisakas but if you've never had the problem, it's hard to tell someone else how to fix it. It usually comes down to the part not being correct for the rifle or...

    Soviet M38 Carbine

    Finally knocked one of my top ten off the list last weekend. M38 in a proper stock. Obviously a postwar refurbishment but in great condition. Bore is counterbored as most are. Serial numbers all...

    If it worked fine before and isn't now, common sense says something wasn't reassembled correctly. I'd try doing that again before anything else.

    If you keep them stored in a dark area that is more or less temperature controlled and not high humidity you should be fine. Things that are destructive to anything are direct sunlight, excessive...
