    To be fair to him, there wasn't really a bunch of designs to take a look at when he came up with his. It's part of what I love about collecting early smokeless powder milsurps, they are all unique as...

    There likely is still evidence of the staking on the action screws and you should be able to line those up to get what it originally would have went into service with.

    I recently got myself a Type 2 M1 Garand which I had the joys of taking out of the grease (can't wait to shoot it more once my range opens up again). I am shocked at just how ergonomic this rifle is....

    I think there were more left in original configuration than 1%, just your odds of seeing them in the USA are much lower. Most the ones left intact would likely have been given away as war surplus/aid...

    Another thing to consider, its actually a compliment that all these M1s are 'mixed up' as it meant the parts were made right. The whole reason for serializing equipment was to do with keeping the...

    That serial number indicates it is a Swiss 1900 luger from 1904. I am not a Luger expert by any means hopefully someone can come along and provide more details.

    'Corrected' is faked. It is the same thing as stamping new serial numbers on a rifle to make it 'all matching', and is about the same level of honesty. American arms have this issue because people...

    Couldn't help you with value. Even though it is rarer it might not be worth anything more than your average M43 Mauser simply due to lack of desire for it. Best of luck.

    In Canada they would likely be 1200$+ rifles, most likely falling into the 1800$-2k+ range. Best of luck with your sales!

    You give any rifle poor ammo and it will fail. Look at the M16 in Vietnam where they issued poor quality ammo and the rifles failed, yet fast forward 50 years and they are the standard.

    The pointed round is 8x56r which was purposely designed so you couldn't chamber it in the 8x50r rifles to prevent them from blowing up. The Mannlicher 88 action is why they never updated the...

    For the 8x50r cartridge they never adopted a pointed bullet. Originally in 1888 it was black powder, then in 1890 they updated to a semi-smokeless powder, hence the change in the rear sights. Most...

    I am confused as to what you are asking. A Gewehr 88 is a completely different design than a M98 Mauser, if that is what your asking and no parts are likely going to be interchangable. Certainly no...
