The Great Firearms-Thread
« on: 05-08-2012, 18:08:23 »
Since the militaria-thread covers so many bases but sticks to exclusively military stuff (You don't say?) I thought of making a new thread to all you firearms enthusiasts there!  Here you can post stuff about your own firearms or ask questions relating to firearms and we may be able to help you in that matter.

We will start off with a video on Mosin-Nagant bolt disassembled and reassembled blindfolded.. by ME, not one f me.

I'm going to be buying a Mosin/K98/.22 this month or the next, what should I look for in the firearm? How do I know whether a barrel is good or not?


Am I going to ever luck out and find a Mosin that someone already got all the cosmoline out of?  ;D

Well, they say that a Ruger 10/22 is the best .22 rimfire rifle money can buy. Semi-auto. When bying a Mosin or K98 you should see if the serial numbers match on the bolt and the receiver, so the gun gets more resale value.

When it comes to barrels, you should check that the chamber is in-line with the bore. It means that when the chamber was made, it's made straight and center.

Look down the barrel, if the rifling grooves are well visible and a clear depth is seen, then the barrel is good. Look at the barrel wand to see if it issent rusted.

So i went to luxembourg today and met Ben aka GuinNess of FH2

Also fired a SMLE but i forgot to film that...
The SMLE shoots awesome
The garands recoil is heavy..i will never bitch on FH2 again about it. Its realistic!
The Colt 1911 was the best! I love it.
and the luger was a big surprise also. The recoil was harder then other 9mm but yet still nice. it FELT nice

Thanks a bunch GuinNess!

7.62x51mm NATO, aka .308 Winchester with detachable magazine and synthetic stock.

I have a Bushnell Sportsman 3-9X mounted on it, with a bipod and extra sling attachments, and maybe i'll camo it with something..  ;) I bedded the stock with Acraglas and made the barrel a free-floater (Remington uses the principle where they support the barrel from two points; the receiver and the tip of the stock touching the barrel) The bedding was necessary because the factory stock had so much flex in it that it would affect the accuracy. The whole package including the bedding compound cost about 750€

E: oh and the rounds i'm using will be Sako Range, which come in 50 rnd boxes, cost me 52€. 7.62, Full Metal Jacket (see what i did there?), bullet weight 8grams

Hey guys,

I'm looking forward to buy myself a Swiss K31. Now I got already some offers for the rifle itself from different dealers in my country but however I want to fit it with a scope and I've been told to look for steel montage. Does anybody know a good place/dealer where I can buy a complete montage without scope an delivers to Luxemburg (EU) ?

Thx for replys  :)

I wouldn't fit it with a scope.  That'll detract from the value of a historical rifle....
