    6.5 X 54 Mannlicher Schoenauer wannabe sniper

    So, I just got hold of this after wanting a Mannlicher Schoenauer rifle for a long time. I wanted one in 6.5 X 54, but would have settled for one in 30-06 or .270 (later models). Anyhow, I stumbled upon this on auction. No one probably bid on it as it was a Greek contract rifle that got...

    Firearms FN Patrol Bolt Rifle, .308 $650 pics up SPF

    I'm selling my FN PBR for $750 It shoots 150's/155's pretty good, and 168's decent. 1-12" twist, 16" 18" barrel, Hougue rubber covered stock with aluminum bedding block. Also comes with Weaver/Picatinny style bases, but no scope. IIRC, the bases (2-piece) match the distance between slots...

    Is anybody else getting "Explosive" stickers on their smokeless powder deliveries?

    I just opened my last delivery of an 8# jug of powder and noticed it had the "Explosive" hazmat sticker on it. If this is now classified as "Explosive" and not "Flammable Solid" (highly flammable) this may be why powder is going through the roof. A few years ago during the Obama...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns Anybody tried a Rock Island Armory AL9.0?

    One of the multiple blog/forum ads I am subscribed to posted a Rock Island Armory AL9.0 A 9mm revolver with moon clips. Any opinions from revolver users? FWIW, I recently purchased a "Cheep" .38/357 revolver. An EAA Windicator. At least I think that's the name on it. Not being a revolver...

    Hey pmc! M39-2

    Phil, Is this M39-2 S&W worth jumping on and how much? You know I don't want to be left behind the Jones and McCleans if these come up from time to time.

    So, after a discussion on here, the topic of an FSR-89 came up in it. Most of us did not know what it was. After a little research we thought, KOOL!!, but, we’ll never see one. Ha ha, one came up on Gunbroker, and I bought it. As @sirhrmechanic would say, you didn’t pay too much, you just...

    .22 TCM

    I was recently talking to a friend about the .22 TCM rifle. He told me his son bought one and it could only group about 3”. He returned it and they sent another. It did the same. Anybody else have one of these? Any insight into this issue with them. Whether it’s across the board or just...

    Powder going bad

    For those of you who have ever wondered what powder looks like or does when it goes bad here is a pic. Note the red tinge inside the funnel. This powder has not gotten “way bad” but is starting to go. Stored over 50 years in a cellophane wrapper can (the one you see), it’s had just enough...

    I should have posted earlier. P-14

    I was watching this on GB to see if anything got added for info. I had no intention of bidding, but found out at the last minute this particular variant has a unique history. Not a sniper though, as the British only used Winchester’s. This was an early Remington equipped with volley sights...

    Anybody read the Marine Times article on new Marine sniper MOS

    So I get this article on my phone about how they need to revamp the course and they are having too many washouts. I’m not smart enough to copy the article on my new phone. Maybe one of you can help out. Anyhow, what gives? The big boys not putting money where it belongs? Wrong people with...

    Where does the loss of trust begin?

    I had read about this issue a few times already. Not sure if there were other issues long after this event, but the issue itself needs to be looked through the lens of at higher leadership. What leadership did to these men was not acceptable...

    Is this story for real?

    As something I do to take a break from SH and other gun auction sites, I read the little news clips that come along. Anyhow, I come across one that said an Aerospace Engineer and a drug dealer combine to sell hundreds of illegal arms. The thing that makes me wonder, is how many the "get guy"...

    M16A4 Can someone 'splainame what the issue really is?

    So, I'm on my phone and every day I get new news briefs. Of the five complaints, I can see one as valid. They are too long to get in and out of vehicles all the time, and work in CQB. But the rest? What am I missing...
