    Spanish Band would be from a Spanish Mauser. Can also be a Mariachi Band. In this thread though he was referring to the band spring which would be the part that locks the band in. The band being the part that holds the handguard, barrel, and stock together.

    Is that the guy that got caught stamping rifles and called his business the Mosin Box or something similar to yours?

    No, this is another guy who is extremely unhinged. He'd do trades and send rifles missing parts or completely humped after describing them as all matching.. Sometimes he would not send anything at all. He'd routinely threaten to kill people. Bragged about his "Military sniper service". Real nut case but he was pretty much stuck to facebook. Anyone named Anthony C trading K98k rifles on facebook, stay far far away.

    Good to know. We ought to keep a privately circulated “hot sheet” of known humpers and keep it updated!!
