    Default Stupid Gunboards advise again

    I'm starting to see more and more of these threads over there. It really is amazing the advise members give. A newer member picks up a nice all matching and untouched dot44 for $700. Yeah that's like unheard of in today's market. And someone there says "rub boiled linseed oil on that stock". And when Farb question him on his advise it's the typical BS answer "my K98k rifles have always brought top prices."

    What the hell ever. I'm starting to wonder what is in the water over there with some of the members.

    That thread was a rollercoaster, I'm gonna need heart medication one of these days if I keep reading stuff like that. Great resolution though, the OP knew better than to do it.

    It really does amaze me mb44kar sometimes. But it goes to show you how Gunboards really is nowadays a sinking ship. Main reason I stick around here more!

    There is still alot of great people there but it's getting to be less and less though regrettably.

    The other thing is I’ve not observed the plum colour on an extractor that hasn’t been re-blued but that’s probably due to my lack of experience

    crap, i guess all mine were re- blued........

    I was done over there when it was sold to the Canuckistan clickbait company and then it apparently got overrun by Fakebookers. Me and Farb started the K98k forum there when GK imploded due to gross mismanagement and abuses. GB was outstanding, but due to the abusive wanker conduct of some of its “Supermoderators” the founding of this site was required.

    I no longer participate at the GB K98k forum I started because it is now too much of a struggle having intelligent,meaningful, and enlightening discourse. I think it’s a great place for guys to discuss refinished RC stocks and bedding K98k actions, and BOTW type stuff. Those who want to advance can come here.

    I used to belong, but gave up on Gun Boards K98k several years ago. Coincidentally, tonight I just happened to run across one the eleventy billion GB K98k threads about MM. It read like a bunch of 13 year old girls, who think they know everything, but in actuality have a vacuum between their ears, arguing with periodic interjections of logic and knowledge from knowledgeable individuals, many whom are now here. You simply cannot sway stupid/ignorant/narcissistic douchebags with facts, or logic.

    If I could change one thing in this world, it would be to remove anonymity from the internet. Well, that or having my 22 year old body back and know what I know today. But I digress...

    Is that the same guy who destroyed his G43? Then called people dirt collectors and insisted he made it better by agressively cleaning and applying BLO to it?

    I only really went on the other Military Mauser and Mosin forums at gunboards. I quickly realized most were full of shit in regards to Finns and were out to spread lies to protect their "investments". Other military mauser forum was great when John Wall was alive. Bagiman currently is full of knowledge about contract Mausers, but I can email him. Currently he is traveling South American for 2 months researching Contract Mausers. Other than that nothing at gunboards is worth reading for me.
