Re: Japanese Type 97 Sniper rifle

I always think that Japanese weapons should have 'Made In Hong Kong' stamped on them somewhere :lol:

Not my cup of tea but there again, it's good for those who do like them as I am not competing for any :mrgreen:

Re: K31 Ouch!!

Re: K31 Ouch!!

Don't know him Joe, someone in Canada.
I cannot think the case was double charged, there isn't enough room! I doubt the bullet had anything to do with it either but a possible old fracture in the receiver ring sounds most likely to me. I believe he had a bit of a bloody face.

K31 Ouch!!

Apparently a possible double charge and a fracture in the receiver ring plus a slightly oversize cast bullet :shock:

It might be Swiss but they still break under the right (wrong) circumstances................
