NICE!

I love the look of the stock. That's a great find :D

410 grain bullet. You could throw it and really hurt someone. Ha ha.

Re: Leather cleaning question

A big part of the milsurp hobby is finding ways to clean stuff.

Re: Rifle bucket

I love this kind of thing. So cool.

If you don't have a horse maybe you should put it on the side of a jeep. You know, Rat Patrol style.

Re: Went to a gun show today

My gun show was like yours.

Lots of black rifles. I did see some more milsurps this time but the prices were mental. Mosin Nagant rifles with $400+ prices. And I found a K31 for $650. I'm not sure how much being sold though.

But I always try to go. Never know what might be there.

Diopter party

The Swiss love marksmanship and shooting matches so several types of diopter have been developed for competition. The type often encountered is the Type "K" made by Waffenfabrik (WF)for the K31. It clamps onto the rifle front sight and receiver with no alteration needed. This particular on...

Re: Swiss Cleaning Kits

Niner Delta,

I'm like you. I seem to buy the cleaning kits that go with the rifles I get but when I do my cleaning I use a one piece rod.

When I first started shooting though a stgw57 kit was what I used (old grease and all). ;)

Swiss Cleaning Kits

The older straight-pull rifles (K31 and earlier) used a yellow grease called Waffenfett. It was made out of natural things like lanolin and was even used to rub on the stock (though it was not the stock finish). It comes in yellow jars that have instructions in French, German and Italian, the major ...

Is the stock the same as a regular '98? So is getting a cheek weld difficult?

Re: Schmidt Rubin, Model G11

Yes, a chamber cleaning tool.

You can see that additional mesh came with the kit too. The pull-through has an opening mid way along it that can accommodate a patch or mesh.

That kit looks like it's in great shape!

Swiss Bayonet Frogs

*frog noises* Here is a quick guide for you on matching a frog to your bayonet. In these cases the frog grips the Bayonet scabbard with the aid of a tab. The older models (K31,K11 and older) use the buckle style. http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a292/ArchFluffy/Swiss/swiss%20bayonet%20older_zpsxvg4...

Re: Argentine 1891 Question.....

Hello and welcome to the forum! I do think that you are correct in that it has been cut down from the standard model. It looks like a pro job but also a bit wonky for mounting a bayonet. That's the hole for the cleaning rod right below the barrel and above the bayonet lug. So pull the rod to attach ...
