Got a couple of those, myself. Poor packing from the shipper.
As a fellow who doesn't need to pretty-up or alter guns, I chalked it up to the new history of wear and tear on my milsurps, and left...
'Dems mostly carbines, Pilgrim!
Nice, nice show everyone. I've only got eighty four more to go. [shocked]
Here are a few Chinese SKS's
Two very rare M38 Mosin Nagants.
1. MO double date in a laminated stock
2. East German triangle-1 stamped in an East German made stock.
Not a clue! It isn't a Cyrillic letter, nor any symbol that appears on any list of Mosin Nagant markings.
Bore is a 7 of 10. The previous owner did fire it, but I won't. 'Tis not a stock that one should risk the chance of cracking - could be a mistake of better than a thousand dollars.
Many apologies for all the pics, but to do justice for this completely original 1898 Tula Mosin Nagant Model 1891, all of the arsenal marked parts are included.
Certainly not the least common gun...

It's regrettable that the circumstances could not be resolved fairly without intervention.
But I'm happy that it was resolved completely. And hopefully, the auction administration will learn a...

Thank goodness for the chance in Maine for a 2nd turkey tag.
This 16.5lb tom sauntered into range at 5:45 am this morning. Was hoping my girlfriend would get a crack at him this morning, but he...
Time to show a descendent of the Russian SKS-45 that saw some action. Following the expulsion of the French from Indochina in 1954, and Ho Chi MInh's inability to lock up control of both the...
Oh my gosh, Maninblue! Two entries! Violations of rules!
Fifty spankings to you from 50 BMG's avatar!
Somehow, we're getting into very long looking carbines! So, back on track!
Mauser Modelo Argentino 1891 Cavalry Carbine
This is not the cut down 1891 rife, the Model 1909,...
The HS barrel is a score, as they are highly coveted for accuracy.
And the finger groove stock is also a big plus. These, alone, can sell for upwards of $400....
... but don't sell it! It is...
The finger groove stock was redone at San Antonio arsenal, and may have a maker's mark on the nose, such as seen below.
RI = Rock...
First time I ever heard the term "low high number" [thinking]
But I like it!
Any maker mark on the nose of the stock?

Fred, surely hopes this is fully resolved for you soon.
Still, no excuse for the seller not to back up his refund guarantee, nor GunAuction for not enforcing rules.
Kudos to all NES members for...

Never delved into the rifles and pistols of Germany, myself. One of those incidents where you probably can't have just one....
... and I know my tendencies to keep adding them up.

I used their "rule breaker" reporting address.

Email sent, with a link to the original thread.
I like original military configuration and hard earned wear and tear, best of all.
Sure, I'll take a nicely refurbished gun, or a commercial adaptation, but I just don't change the finish on them...
Navy Arms Farmer's Friend and Sharpshooter. Complete rigs with all accessories and carry crates.
Simply fantastic condition. And the stock cartouche surely looks like an 1884 to me.
Non-import marked M21 Chinese SKS. Highly probable Vietnam cache gun bringback. Appears unused.

On occasion. He mostly buys and sells. He hasn't decided if he will keep all of the punt guns, yet. His dad has already laid claim to one for a camp wallhanger.
No concessions this early in the contest! And of course my vote will likely be going to another worthy entry. I am always very envious our US 1911 owners. Someday, I may reach out for one.

It's a 4ga "Punt Gun", partially seen standing against the wall in the picture below. Also shown, are the 8ga and 2ga punt guns with their recoil sleds. A Russian SKS is placed in the picture for...
