  2. Curios and Relics
    I got this older Mauser a while back from and Estate Auction. To sum it up the rifle had seen better days but I cost me hardly anything. The stock was demolished so its pretty much a barrel receiver, bolt, trigger and hardware. It had a nice family of spiders living in the barrel I soaked it...
  3. Rifles
    I maybe trading one of my rifles for a Krag and I was wondering what to look for. I went to some forums and I got a little info but not what I was looking for. What years to look for? I know nothing about these. Also when it comes to ammo, does it take special ammo like surplus only on certain...

  5. Ammunition and Reloading
    I picked these up recently, 500rds @ 10 cents a round. The guy I got them from said he didn't think they are corrosive but wasn't sure. The markings on the case are "7.62x39" and a "76". Brass cased with a copper jacketed FMJ. I don't know if this helps but they have green primers. Anybody know...

    maybe the mods could make this a sticky? Any basic tips and tricks for identifying common mags (AK, AR, Glock, Beretta 92) could go here as well as requests. I'll start a request: I have 2 "pre ban" M1 Carbine magazines (15 rounders), I got them at a gun show but never actually bothered to...

  9. Handguns
    Picked up a high cap mag today at the gun show. It's a Glock branded mag - Only marking is what appears to be a "U". I asked if it was a preban but really didn't get an answer but bought it anyway ($20). What should I be looking for & where?
  10. General Firearms
    I have a 1942 91/30 Mosin Nagant which appears to be refurbished. I would like to know if someone can accurately determine the manufacturer and maybe some history about the rifle and markings on the stock. This is an all numbers matching rifle, except it seems as though a refurb number was...

    This is a work in process but before the forum starts getting swamped with the preban mag questions I'll throw together a little guide on how to tell if a mag in your possession is preban or not. I'm not a lawyer and I don't pretend to be one on the internet so this is not legal advice or a...
