    I've test fired the AK, the AR and the Mini-14 based Mini-30 in 7.62x39 and of the three I found the Mini-30 the most handy and easy to bring to the shoulder quickly to fire fast and accurate shots. I've never liked the looks of the Mini-14, and...

    Not sure but I think these were mainly used with lead round ball shot. There are several videos on youtube showing a UK collector (Scottish?) firing various antiques in his collection and IIRC he uses one of these with some original shot that...

    I've fired a Chinese made AK clone chambered for the 5.56 NATO. A Commercial semi auto rifle. Don't know if any were ever used by a military. If the clones built using military spec parts are any indication then the AK is not immune from wear and...

    I expect the Springfield 1903 design is entirely public domain so if an up and coming firearms manufacturer wanted to build a flag ship rifle they'd have no problems of research and development or royalties to worry about. Its much the same...

    Looks like they ground off the original serial number leaving a flat area for stamping the new number, they did that to 98K rifles they re-barreled to .30-06.

    Syeyr manufactured Krag actions at one time. Could be the rifle was rebuilt on an older action during NAZI occupation. The NAZIs built a few Krags in 7.92X57 but apparently these were not particularly successful.

    Since its a company birthday sale I expect they will have another one year from now, and probably one or two more between now and then. If I had not bought the two 38T revolvers recently I'd have most likely ordered a 392 if they are part of the...

    A gift shotgun is always worth what you have in it. As long as it shoots you are ahead of the game. There may be some interchangeability of parts with a more common gun. Worth looking into at any rate.

    If I had not already decided that I had just too many airguns guns to occupy my summer time I'd have jumped on several of those deals. Just scored two very nice 38T pellet revolvers, already had one in 177 now I have two in .177 and one real...

    Mauser produced several small ring 98 style actions, and Serbia built some for the 7mm. The large ring 98 action was a development of a 1896 sporting rifle quick take down action. That action used interrupted threads to secure the barrel so to...

    Shot shell lead BB size shot is .18 diameter, modern steel air gun BBs are .175 or there abouts, some being smaller than that. If an air rifle isn't very strong .18 BBs can get stuck in the bore. If the gun generates very good pressure it should...

    Thanks for posting this. While I'd dearly love to have a better trigger pull on my 1077 I would not tear it down for it. The gun has worked perfectly since the day I bought it for $20 at a salvage store. Never messed with it and hope I never...

    Be sure of the year of production. They made 500 in 1998 then made 2,000 more in the year 2,000. There were 100 extra rifles made in 98 available only to Marlin employees. So total production was 2,600 rifles.
