  6. 1917 US Enfields - original ones are sometimes tough to find

    I have four 1917 US Enfields all in original condition .. These are well built weapons that are many times overlooked by collectors and hobby shooters of older military rifles .. About 2 1/2 million were made from August of 1917 to sometime in 1919 when production was stopped. These were made...

  8. Ishapore anyone?

    About 12 - 14 years ago many of the Indian Enfield Ishapore in .308 caliber hit the USA. You could pick up decent ones for about $100. The bore conditions were hit and miss. Some were real nice and some were so-so. At one time I had FIVE of these. I shot them all. They shot OK but only the one...

  10. Five Mosin Nagant M39's - A range report

    I have 5 Mosin M39's that I purchased over the years that I shoot regularly at my local range. All 5 had new barrels in cosmoline. I want to state up front that I am NOT a military gun "collector". I don't really care if the stock has scratches, marks etc. and I don't care if the numbers on the...

  12. Mosin reloading .308 or .311 bullets ? - range test

    Hi 55_grain, In all honesty, I have never used any milsurp ball ammo in any of the Mosin's that I own. I usually just buy either the raw unfired brass or get some S&B loaded ammo and save the cases after shooting the ammo. I also have a Finnish M91/30 that I had Jim Roberts make into a...
  13. Mosin reloading .308 or .311 bullets ? - range test

    Yes - BUT the point of the test is that sometimes slugging a barrel may not give you the best bullet to shoot? I would be willing to bet that my VKT M39 slugs in the .308 - .309 range as most Finnish Mosin's do. Yet ... It shoots a .311 diameter bullet best. If I had slugged the bore and it was...
  14. Mosin reloading .308 or .311 bullets ? - range test

    Over the years I have shot all different kinds of Mosin Nagant rifles with my reloads at my local range. I have used both .308 and .311 diameter bullets at times. The general consensus is that the Russian Mosin's have a .311 bore and the Finnish rifles have a bore in the .308 -.309 range and...
  15. M-38 Carcano - A decent shooter with the right ammo

    I acquired this M-38 Carcano from a collector in 1999. It was in nice shape with an excellent bore. This rifle is the same as the Kennedy assasination rifle that Oswald used except this one (obviously) has no scope. The serial # on this one was C24**. One day I looked up the serial # on the...
  16. What is your most accurate milsurp?

    I have here about 30 milsurp rifles and I try to shoot them all on a regular basis. Of all the rifles the one that consistently shoots the best is a Finnish 1944 VKT Model 39 Mosin Nagant with hex receiver. I acquired this rifle with a number of other rifles from a collector abour 10 years ago...
  17. A tale of two Yugos - SKS range report

    I have two Yugoslavian SKS's. One is an M59/66 that I picked up in trade with a fellow Northheastshooter.com shooter. The other is an rearsenaled M59 that I picked up from xxxxxxxx when they had them for sale a few months ago. This is not a "true M59" and it had import markings. I believe it was...
  18. M91/30 made up sniper - range report

    I am new to this forum but have been shooting milsurps for many years. I took my Russian M91/30 "made up sniper" with Russian 3.5X scope to the range today with a few handloads. I bought this rifle about 10 years ago and had someone mount the Russian scope. When I got the rifle it was in...
