    T-Gewehr Dies

    Sorry for previous post. Trying to post too fast.

    Good Evening All,

    Just off the phone with CH4D and got some bad news. Going into the call, I thought I was a few weeks from receiving die set for the T-Gewehr. Well, my dies will arrive 2/24!! Still love CH4D and they have allowed me to shoot many unique weapons.

    As you can imagine, I would like not to have to wait that long. Any leads on securing a set of dies for the beast.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    As in Feb 2024? A bit long...we used to be able to find a company that made everything including the really big stuff like 40mm Bofors and so on. Don't know where they are today.

    Looking forward to seeing fresh ammo...How did you say you were going to make bullets? Turned copper solids?

    Good Morning All,

    Diemaker is asking for dimensional specification for the T-Gewehr's chamber. Anyone have them handy?

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Can you not measure a live cartridge or copy and past a line drawing of the cartridge?
