    Likely done States side. Most sporterized rifles were done in the country they were found in. Cheap hunting rifle back in the day, though I suppose that statement would be true today as well.

    It is a sporterized Carcano M91.

    Caliber is likely 6.5x52 Carcano though it may be 6.5x54 MS simply due to the fact a quite a few of these were converted to that caliber for sale on the civilian...

    I've seen photos of the result of a American service man attempting to disassemble the bolt in his 50 cal, with a live round, striking the stuck firing pin with the primer end. Not a pretty photo.

    It is amazing what you will do when things get desperate. For the Austrian-Hungarians captured 7.62x54r would be used in a emergency in their M95 and M88/90 rifles when the standard 8x50r wasn't...

    The only old wives tales I used to really believe was that the AR-15 was insufficient as a service rifle. Over time, after handling many alternatives (M14s, Tavors, VZ58s, Type 81s, etc.), and...

    They aren't as strong, the reality is they are strong enough for what they need to do. They just aren't overbuilt like most other actions.

    Plus for all intents and purposes the pasteboard chargers are likely better. You drop a clip in the snow when your trying to load your rifle? Not really a issue with the pasteboard chargers, possibly...

    I suspect the .30-06 ones likely used standard 3 bump Mauser stripper clips as I suspect that was what the Belgians were using for their Mausers.

    I can't remember what type my Venezuelan one used...

    Very nice, I have been reading the book on Argentine Mausers recently (don't actually own any unfortunately) and the procurement process for them (especially the 1891) was fascinating. The Argentines...

    I am honestly convinced women tend to shoot better than men. Its also why I figure more women aren't interested in shooting, its boring for them.

    Very nice shooting!

    Spain sometimes did change the front sight to a blade, but it was usually a single piece. Those wire hanger sling adapters are sometimes on Finnish guns sometimes not, later production Finnish stuff...

    A lot of the time there is a SA in a box on the receiver. Yours doesn't appear to have one. I am just basing it off of the front sight and the fact that it has a import marking. I didn't see anything...

    I think it is a Finnish Captured rifle. That double stacked front sight is one of the styles they had on the go. Also the fact it has a import mark is also a indication it isn't a SCW rifle as they...

    Even most turn bolt rifles do the same thing, if you try leaving the bolt not fully locked in position and pull the trigger, many designs will draw the bolt into the locked position, its just a bit...

    A K31 cannot be fired out of battery. If the bolt is not fully closed when the trigger is pulled, the firing pin moves the locking lugs to the locked position. This usually means that the firing pin...

    The definitions don't have any hard and fast rule and it really depends on the country and the time frame.

    Historically you had muskets, and carbines. The carbine being a shortened musket for use...

    Many European countries don't care if you have 'converted autos'. To them a semi-auto is a semi-auto, whether or not it was a full auto earlier in life.

    Why do you think they won't stand the test of time? Polymer doesn't really degrade. The main components are steel (and better quality steel than any of the older firearms). So far I haven't seen...

    Ok but how many parts needed to be replaced on that 1911 before it reached that point?

    Honestly as much as I prefer steel guns myself (don't own a single plastic pistol, closest I have gotten to that is stamped metal a la Swiss P75), the modern polymer guns are lighter, more reliable,...

    People have used many different terms for different ammo in the past. 8mm Mauser is called many different things for example. 8mm, 8x57mm, 7.92mm, 7.9mm, etc.

    7.5 Swiss or 7.5 French both use...

    Wow that is impressive! I am curious about how you set up your gun drill/rifling. I have toyed with the idea of making a rifling machine at some point, my idea would use a adjustable taper and a rack...
