    Been there, done that. This is a "oldie" problem. And the solution is a 4BA screw eased in. Take an ordinary 4BA mild steel screw - not a high-tensile one - of the appropriate length, grease it well...

    From years of experience I earnestly advise you to go for the best bore. Just about everything else is fixable. But try as I may, I have never been able to put back rifling that is no longer there!
  4. Iran 1944

    It's actually Iranian. Made in (19)44, as you can tell (you can tell, can't you?:madsmile: ) from the 44 in Farsi lettering at the bottom - At the top there is a crown to give the orientation.

    No...

    If the info in Stratton is correct, then an 8-36 thread, possibly thinned down a few 1/1000", ought to be close enough to be eased in. My experience is that ordinary steel screws can often be...

    Because there is no lettering, it's on the FIRST page of 7,92X57, for 0 - E

    Photo no. KAA 0107 (see column at right)

    Wow! Colour me green! That is not only a rarity, it seems to be in good condition.
    Let us know how it performs.

    Unfortunately - yes - that's corrosion and pitting. Using a borescope will only discourage you further.**
    And leaving the bore to soak in aggresive chemicals can cause further pitting underneath the...

    P.S: Tincansailor1, the only Vulkan cartridge that I can find on the Norma site has a muzzle energy of around 3000 joules. The 3400 J. seems to be on the high side for a Swedish Mauser.

    Whooaaah! - Not so fast!

    The Vulkan is a Norma hunting bullet. I have just looked at my (admittedly old) Norma reloading manual from 1995. Swedish Mausers were the same then as now, and the loads...

    Yes, it's a Buffington sight. And I'm glad that my Trapdoor doesn't look like that - if it did, I wouldn't dare to shoot it!

    Quite seriously, that is a rifle that I would only handle with gloves...

    As far as I know (but how far is that?) you have the choice between linseed oil, linseed oil - and, for special cases - linseed oil.

    In other words, IMOH, there's no question.

    Look very carefully at the dark spots. There are bright lines to be seen on the side towards the large spot of illumination. If the dark spots were pits, these faces would be in shadow, i.e. dark,...

    A most important caveat

    It is most important to recognize that no-one here can give you a guarantee that the rifle is safe.
