    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.

    This is the saddest part about it, oh well its drilled and tapped to.

    I have never had a issue with .323 bullets in 8mm Lebel. Both my rifles were chambered for 'N' cartridge but I found .323 198grn FMJ boattail rounds from PPU shot better than the pulled surplus...

    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.

    90% of the Land casualties in WWII were caused by Arty, 8% by Armoured, 2% by Infantry. The balance has shifted even more in recent years thanks to advancement in Arty tech (the stuff the Russians...

    I don't see tanks going out of favour anytime soon. Yes they can be more vulnerable than before but the reality is it is still a important tool. Ultimately it is Arty which wins battles.

    I know that Swedish Stripper Clips worked in my Arisaka Type 99 when I had it, I suspect it would work for the Type 38 as well but I have never tried.

    The advertising gimmick I love is when someone puts 'rare' in their ad. Truly rare items don't need to be advertised that way, the parties recognize they are rare by looking at them not because...

    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.

    If there are some in Canada the amount would be very few. Any in country would have been brought in pre-1994 so very limited time frame where it would have been possible to buy one.

    The biggest issue with the Mk. III Ross was it wasn't given enough time to fully develop. By 1916, the design was mature and effective, with all the kinks worked out (improved bolt stops and locking...

    I know, I immediately thought of Guisan, but unfortunately he is passed on. I know he likely would have had a answer, or if he didn't he would be the guy to have figured it out.

    Just felt I would share my most recent acquisition. It is a Swiss IG 1889/96, 3rd rarest of the Swiss main issued firearms (second rarest being the KG 1900, and first rarest being the...

    The AG-42 and 42b used the same gas system (no difference other than one being stainless and one not). The rear sight is actually calibrated for both calibers, there is a little...
