  1. Shot both of these over the weekend, and very pleased with them both. Out of the two, I prefer the m94 overall, but the way the Krag loads is just so cool and unique. I ordered a larger aperture disc for the rear peep sight, and it just came in the mail today. It's a "hunting" aperture so I'll see how I like it. That tiny "target" aperture is super hard for me to see anything through, and nearly impossible if there's any sun in your eyes. FYI, both of these rifles are recommended to shoot milder loads than the commercially available ammo. I put 38.0 grains of Reloader 22 behind some 140 gr Hornady SP Interlock bullets, and I think I'll stick with that load for now. Very sweet shooting guns. Maybe I'll be able to take them out to 500-600 yards soon..
  2. The m96 rifles are relatively easy to find and still reasonably priced
  3. The Norwegian Krag is also missing it's cleaning rod, but I refuse to pay $100 for one lol
  4. I wish I could find a database of proof marks, cause there's like 4 different marks on the receiver.... I may have to learn to speak Norwegian
  5. Bought two guns in 3 days, both are chambered in 6.5x55. On top we have a Norwegian Krag Jorgensen. Best I can tell it's a model M1894 that's been turned into a civilian target rifle. The rear sight has been removed and a new handguard has been put on it. Not exactly sure where someone would have found a handguard this style that fits the rifle so nicely. The barrel and receiver match, along with other parts such as the barrel bands. But the stock and bolt have different serial numbers. Also what's odd, is the buttplate doesn't have an opening for storing a cleaning kit, even though the wood underneath it is drilled out.... But the buttplate matches the stock numbers, so who knows? Currently, it has a Lyman 57 SME peep sight. I looked into getting a rear sight and returning it to it's original configuration, but that will cost around $500 to do so, so for now, I'll just enjoy it as it is. The rifle on the bottom is a Swedish m94 Carbine, and it's my favorite of the two. Sure the rifling of the bore is a bit worn, the sling isn't leather, and the slide on the rear sight needs a new spring, but it's just such a cute little fellow. It's a cock on closing bolt, similar to the Lee Enfields, smooth operating, easy to disassemble/ clean, and coming in at 37 inches overall, it's a handy size. Seeing that the Norwegian Krag's aren't able to handle the higher pressures that the Swede can, I'll have to shoot up some of my commercial brass so I can reload for the Krag as safer pressures, but that's no big deal. Hope to get these both printed on paper relatively soon. I'm sure the soft recoil of the 6.5x55 will make both of these sweet shooters.
  6. I'll be sure to get that right out to you
  7. I have one MG13 mag that came with the Ljungman, haven't tried it to see if it also holds 8mm for the Hakim. And I have a good gas tool, I cheaped out the first time and the brass tool bent on me trying to get the Rasheed's screw unstuck, but they're all working properly now. And as far as ammo, I have PPU
  8. Finally got the Hakim in and completed the trio ( Ljungman, Rasheed, & Hakim) The Garand just happened to be in the same room, so it too made it into the picture. Sorry for the crappy lighting and the wrinkles in the background
  9. Finally acquired a WWII Springfreld M1 Garand. Serial number says it's from May 1942 that was rebuilt in 1947. She's greased up and ready to go to the range. I want to get some accessories for it, like a cleaning kit, bayonet, ammo pouch, but I'm trying to not spend more money right now! Hope you enjoy h
  10. Will you be shooting paper targets, or 4 legged creatures?
  11. For me, the 6.5 Swede would be nice cause I've already got a 96 Mauser and a Ljungman, and I reload for those already. So not having to reload yet another caliber would be great. Sadly, I haven't had either of my guns out to distance yet, and can't say what kind of groups I'm getting on paper. But from what I've read, the 6.5 Swedish should make a good contender at distance for an average marksman. The BC of the 6.5mm bullets are great. I also can't say anything about the Howa rifles, but I'm glad that manufacturers are still building rifles for the 6.5 Swedish round.
  12. I didn't have the $1700, nor the C&R License back when wideners had guns..... Better late than never
  13. I was one of the lucky few to get one of the K11 carbines from Classic Arms' latest batches. Very pleased that it's not soaked in cosmoline, and that it has all matching numbers, and included the trifecta of accessories (sling, muzzle cap, and troop tag) Too bad the troop tag is not legible, but it does have a number matching the rifle, and the guy was in the army reserves and lived in Burgdorf. This rifle seems to be a conversion from the Cavalry Carbine Model 1905. Based on the fact that it's about 1/8" to 3/16" shorter than my K31. Also, it falls within the serial number range of the converted ones, in the year 1916. It has a "T" after the serial number, which I believe is an inspector stamp, and it has a P below the number with means the soldier kept his rifle. There's also a "35" stamped below the serial number, and the only thing I can come up with for that is if the rifle was refurbished at the factory in 1935.
  14. free

    Would you consider shipping to a C&R licensee?
  15. So, I just printed off a 50% scale for me to practice with at 50 yards, and holy crap! the target is smaller than a quarter at 50 yards..... this will not be easy, but I guess that's why it's called a challenge I just checked, and it's smaller than a nickel at 50 yards
