    I feel like I needed to clarify. The "camera app" that I was referring to above is the app that comes included with Windows 10. The borescope doesn't have its own.

    I'd say this borescope passed...

    The Turkish 1893 is a total loser.

    As for the VZ.24, I think that one might be OK. I don't think it will get much use, but I do want to try shooting it someday.

    I couldn't get any responses about the discontinuities in the SKS barrel, but I am still going to post another oddity.

    1940 Carcano Calvary M91

    I have just a couple more posts, then I'm going to call it a day. If I can make it to 8 rifles total (we're at 5 already), then I've officially hit the...

    Bump...

    Anybody have any thoughts? To me, this looks like a material defect that was inherent to the original steel bar, and then reamed and rifled over. It definitely doesn't look like it came...

    Clean Bore

    Not really a true title.

    What happened was I got bored. And tired. I was also becoming concerned at the rate I was going through cleaning supplies. Some of these supplies, particularly the VFG...

    Turkish Cleaning 2

    Back to the kitchen counter for some cleaning.

    If you don't' have one, get a carbon fiber cleaning rod. I also like these disposable pipettes, as it keeps me from getting solvent everywhere. If...

    Editorial note: I do realize that I spelled this wrong at least a half-dozen times. "Preduzece" should be the correct spelling. Foreign languages are hard.

    Turkish 1893

    I don't know if "clean" and "Turkish" can really be used together when discussing the condition of milsurp Mausers. Maybe I'm just unlucky when it comes to these particular rifles.

    I don't think I can buy guns anywhere near as fast as our government spends money. That said, a $600 Corona check could buy a pretty nice rifle. A $1200 check could be both a rifle and ammunition.

    Chinese SKS

    I'm thinking this Chinese SKS is going to be a hot mess. It's pretty rough on the outside. I like it because it's a Vietnam era capture (supposedly), and has authentic (supposedly) trench markings....

    Mauser Chilean Mondelo 1895

    Up next is an 1895 Chilean Mauser Mondelo. I really hope this one turns out OK, as it's one of my favorite rifles. Unlike the last two rifles which were 8mm mausers, this one is chambered in 7mm.

    Preduceze 44

    First up is my Yugo refurbished K98 Preduceze 44. This one is actually in great condition and still even still has the original armory tag on it, so my hopes are high.
