    Firearms SPF: Type 56 SKS, factory 26, numbers matching

    PSA: Don't let your bolt gun fall with the bolt open while cleaning it. **UPDATE: FIXED**

    Tikka is a rifle made to a price point with resultant tradeoffs. It happens to be one of the best of that breed, but is still an inexpensive, and inexpensively made, rifle. They are very smooth and accurate, but at $2500 you are getting into TRG territory. TRG looks similar, but is a different...

    What is my grandfathers mod 98 worth?

    He should probably pick up all he can at those prices. At worst, he could resell online and double his money. An average condition Russian Capture K98k on gunbroker looks more like $700. A mismatched bringback in decent shape will close in on $1000, with an all-matching rifle nearing $2000. I...

    Mosin Nagant fail video

    Yes, it was. What rifle your infantry carries vis a vis your adversary really has not been a decisive factor in state-on-state conflict in more than 100 years.

    What is my grandfathers mod 98 worth?

    As jphill mentioned above, perhaps $500 on gunbroker.... perhaps. You'd need a stock assembly, barrel band, and a forend cap to restore. Unless a true passion project, I'd leave it as is and keep it in the family. If you restored with original, mismatched K98k parts, it would probably be a...

    Finally getting a Garand back into the safe

    Good to hear, also have an IHC on order from the US CMP! Are there similar 5rd capacity limits for the M1?

    43 Remington 1903a4 M73b1

    Can we be friends? As a follow-on serious question, and not an ill-disguised offer: what is the value range on 1903A4s in similar condition (arsenal refinished or not)? Thanks
