    SR4759 is good for many of the old black powder cartridge military rifles. I use it in 11mm Gras, 45/70, 11mm Spanish etc. I personally believe 28 grains may be high for a starting point, at least....

    I would consider mine original except for the Belgian proof marks. The polishing is not aggressive. It is a good shooter, and that is what it is used for. It must have spent its time in a dry...

    Belgian proofed IG 71

    I looked up the old threads to make sure I have not posted this before. I guess I didn't.
    I have an 1871 Mauser with Belgian proof marks on the barrel, receiver and bolt parts. It was made by...

    It might slide over it, especially as you are missing the front sight blade that goes in the dovetail of the front sight base. Then you would have to remove anything that remains of the original...

    I would imagine there are cartridge collectors who would pay well for a full box, depending on what you paid for it. I've seen some at gun shows for like $90 to $100. If you could get the price of a...

    I recently acquired I.G. 71/84 No. 217 made by Mauser Oberndorff. This rifle is listed in the compilation above for this type of rifle.
    The butt stock is not marked with any acceptance marks in the...

    Glad to know you're happy with his products. We may all need them sometime.

    Out of curiosity, is it difficult and expensive to import the stocks from Poland?

    It is possible that the fellow in Poland, Fox-military.com, could make a stock for you. He seems to have a good reputation, from what I have read. He does not list the GEW88 on his site, however....

    No. I got the plate along with the stacking rod, but just needed the rod. Let me know. If you don't get the other, I'll look it up.

    that
    Thank you. I guess I should have looked. For some reason, I thought nobody would have addressed that particular issue. I was wrong. I guess I will dig deeper (here) in the future.

    Question on M71 Rifle marking

    I have an M71 Mauser made by Amberg with a low number (2106) which is marked as made and issued in 1877. Where this rifle differs from others I own and have seen is that it bears no royal cipher,...

    Congratulations on that find. It's amazing what's coming out of French attics now that the laws concerning really old military rifles have apparently been eased up a little bit.

    Probably imported from Turkey with those markings, plus it is a 1917 Mauser Oberndorff product if I am reading the date correctly, and that contract was supposedly largely sent to Turkey during WW1.

    question on RC bolt fit up

    I do not collect Mausers from after WW1, normally, but prices in the "old" days on RC rifles were too tempting. I have a JP Sauer from 1938 and a Borsigwald from 1939. Both came with electro...

    I believe the "crowned" W stands for the Prussian King (and Emperor) William. Probably the First of the two.
