    Where and when was this Type 99 made?

    I inherited this last-ditch 99 several years ago from my grandfather. His cousin, an American soldier in the occupation, shipped it to him. It has been fired only since then and no more. Ammo for...
  6. Production numbers for all versions of the No. 4 rifle?

    I'm writing a very short history on a few WWII rifles for a local museum. I've ran into a roadblock on production numbers for the No. 4 Lee-Enfield. I can find numbers for No. 1 thru No. 5 models,...

    GEW 98 handguard source?

    Is there a good source for GEW 98 handguards? I've checked SARCO, Boyds, and Ebay with no luck. I would take repro if that's all I can find.

    Good info here. The stock is nice and solid, not spongy. I'm not a great shot, but I can keep some of my other milsurps in a fist-sized group at 100 yards, and with straight vertical stringing, I'm...

  16. When did Springfield go to the '06 cartridge?

    Does anyone know what the last serial number was that was produced for the 30-03 cartridge? I know the earlier ones were converted to the '06, just curious when the change was made. I have two...
