    I just picked up my first Mauser that was advertised as a Argentine 7mm Mauser Carbine in 7x57. I knew from only a couple quick searches that that was going to be wrong. First off it seems the Argentine Mauser was 7.62x53. Still at the price with almost 200 rounds of factory ammo, I picked it...

    Alright, found these surplus Spanish Mausers in .308 for $169.95 for sale at Samco Global Arsenal and I have question. Are these rifles safe to shoot ? I heard that these rifles were chambered in 7x57 Mauser and they converted them to .308 Winchester(7.62x51 NATO). Also I heard that .308 are...

    I have a birthday coming up and I need some advice. I'm thinking of either: A. Getting a Mosin Nagant and a lot of Ammo, I've seen spam cans at .19cts a round, and rifles around 100$. B. Getting a lot of ammo for a rifle I have: a VZ.24. It's 8mm and has similar ballistics to the 762X54R I...

    I want to remove the front sight on my mauser and replace with a new sight blank from Brownells. According to the directions I just tap the old one out. Does this original sight (it's a dovetail type) easily tap out? Thanks

    So I just bought a Czech vz.24 today, it is in quite good condition. However, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to date these rifles to when they were produced. I know that they stopped being made in 1942, but that's all I know. Also, this rifle does have a very large trigger guard, which I know...

    I've been thinking about picking up a "vintage" bolt action for relatively cheap. The ones available and within my price range (no more than $400.00) are Mauser's (various countries I believe) Enfield's (the British 303 version and the Pakistani? .308 version) and Mosin Nagant's(they have the...

    I have been debating between the SKS, Mosin Nagant, Enfield, and Mauser. I have made my choice. I'm getting the SKS. My decision came down to several factors, but the primary one is the availability of ammunition. I like the 7.62x39 because it is used in the SKS and the AK-47 (which not too...

    I put the question under rifle forum but got one response. I am picking up another Turkish Mauser from a friend. This one is a Mdl 1938. The price is $150. Condition is good or maybe better. Looks like it went to the arsenal and didn't get used much after that. What do you guys think of...

    I am getting another Turkish Mauser from a friend. This one is a Mdl. 1938. My other one is a 1903. Price is $150. What do you guys think? Decent price? Condition is pretty good. Looks like it went back to the arsenal and didn't have much use after.

    I traded a Tanfoglio TZ 75 9mm pistol for a new Zastava LK M70 .308 today at a local FFL. It's the deluxe model with the double set trigger, adjustable rear sights, and walnut stock. Pics will follow this weekend.
