Re: A book review that should interest Arch

While not the same as the Swiss Vetterli I have, it might be an interesting book. The Swiss developed the rifle in 1868 (I think) and the Italians adopted a version of it in 1870. The cool part of the Italian history is that they were pressed into service for the first world war as a stop-gap measur...

Re: Do you know

Ha ha! You are all great :lol: Yes, it can be used for all of the things you have described! But, it is designed to be used as a stacking rod. You are a smart group. The opening pic is of a 96/11 and the following is of three K31s. http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a292/ArchFluffy/Swiss/Sack.jpg -Ar...

Re: Original matching [SA] 91/30

I often times think that the history of the rifle is one of the best parts. I spend far more time reading and researching about my rifles than handling/looking at/shooting them.

Even deciphering the markings on them is fun!

Looks like a great find too!

Re: Swiss sight corrector

!Update! K31s are not the only Swiss rifles that have sight correctors. Here is a REGULA on my 96/11. It goes under the rear sight where turning it will raise or lower the sight. You can see that it is marked for the G11 (a rifle with the same specs this one was upgraded to). http://i13.photobucket....

Re: The bigger the sensor the less noise in digital

I love this kid of info because people like me that don't know a lot about photography don't know the best perimeters to compare cameras by or what's most important.

Re: MAS 36 for me

Those are such strange looking rifles with the bolt handle like that. It sure is working well though.

It is fun getting a new rifle and then tracking down all the things to go with it. Us guys accessorize too. :lol:

Re: I put a deposit on my first gun show table.

This makes me want to go to a gun show now too!

Not that I want to sell anything...

Really though, I think it's great that you pulled the trigger on this and gave it a shot. Looking forward to the final report!

Re: I put a deposit on my first gun show table.

You did just fine. It sure looks like a nice show too. Good lighting, pathways wide enough to walk down. Nice. You really did move those rifles! I wonder what the crowd on Sunday will be like. I always try to go Saturday and find all the good stuff. You might surprise some fellow sellers with even m...
