Dunno about the rest of you, but I would rather have a .303 enfield
Both > either
I already shoot 7.5, I'll leave off the other hard to find/expensive shit for the rest of you guys. Hell, I haven't even gotten any 7.5 yet, since the only place I can get it for less than 50c out the door/shipped hasn't been in stock for awhile
I'm thinking about it but I'm wondering just how rough they are. Stock chips are pretty crappy.
How do they all differ anyway? Whats the difference between a smle and this
The normal (i.e., "good") ones I have seen require a lot of decosmoing and paint removal. I think the repairs are gnerally pretty good (and some are interesting) but it would definitely make a refinished rifle look "different."
Didn't Thundercub have one of these he was restoring/giving up on?
Hmmm maybe I'll cave later today. I was going to buy a K31 bayonet but I guess if you can get a whole gun for the same price...
How accurate were they?
It seems also that while AIM labels them as .308 its considered a bad idea to shoot .308 through them and that 7.62 nato is all that should be used.
I already have a .308 Enfield. IT's called an L42a1
That's what I'm thinking.
A lot of people shoot off the shelf .308 with no problems. I looked into it briefly but don't remember what they were shooting though.
Still have it in pieces from when I had to move out of my APT after the 'divorce.'
It's down in my shop now. If my Ishapore wasn't shooter's grade, and I have had to do all this work on it, I'd be flat out afraid to buy one of these...
i'd rather have a No. 4 mk1
That I'll certainly believe but 7.62 NATO is 50,000 psi, .308 Winchester is 66,000 psi. If they weren't made for .308 I don't think I'd personally fire it because the difference is rather significant, ymmv.
What all has yours needed?
My mastercard is having a hard time being restrained now.
$69 hex recievers
do want the bike
wait, so is it a BMW made or a DNEPR made?
The Commies stole the BMW tooling when they cleaned out the Eastern half of Germany and hauled it all back with them.
In typical Commie style, they didn't feel the need to change much over the years
they want like 8k for it, but you can get them as kits for less than 4
