    Look what I found today.

    L@@K what I found today. lying on the floor under a counter in an old garage. Traded 390 rounds of 6.5x55 Swede ammo for it. good deal or what? it will need some TLC and a few bucks to upgrade. still not a bad day. GD

    when I purchased the ammo (military) it cost me $4.75 per 130 rounds mfg in 1961 my cost $14.25 I still have it in 200 round ammo packs at one time I had a few swede rifles on hand. I am now down to one rifle model 94 carbine and about 2000 rounds of ammo. I still think I got a good deal. PS I just sold a dealer 390 rounds for $180.00 bucks. so what ever way you look at it. it still works for me. Tom GD

    you did good.
    you'll need a few parts and some cleaning.
    but should have no problems getting it up and going.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    the more i find out about shootin boolits, the more it contradicts everything i ever learned about shooting jaxketed.
