    Hi all, found this Mauser stock set (I have the hand guard here somewhere) at my LGS a couple months back and am just getting around to cleaning it up/deciding what to do with it hit. It should be a small ring, but other than that I have no clue what it is. Can anyone help?

    Bought a c96 from an online estate auction. Seller thought is was 7.65 x 21mm (= .30 luger). Most C96's are 7.63 x 25 mm (=.30 Mauser) and of course some 9mm which this gun is not. I have aslo confimred that are some .30 Luger C96's. How can i tell if its chambered in .30 luger or .30 Mauser...

    I'm looking at one from a gunstore 3 hrs from where I live. Before I go and get it, I wanted to clarify - is it one of those "S" bores that can use the .323 diameter bullets? All I can find on 7.92x57 ammo is Prvi Partizan, which I read all European is .323. I read elsewhere that everything...

    Picked this up from a older gentleman who says his dad brought it back from ww2, I didn’t really overpay no matter what it is, and I don’t think I really plan on selling, I’m just interested in what I have here exactly. My understanding leads me to believe this came from Waffen Werke Brunn in...

    I got very little information upon receiving this rifle, and I'll admit I'm rather new to all this, but I believe it to be a VZ.24 chambered in 8mm mauser. I can't find much information on D prefixed serial numbers, and am not sure what a lot of the markings mean on the receiver. Any ideas on...

    I bought a 1912 Chilean Mauser decades ago. I probably should not have started the restoration project but you have to bear in mind that back when I did so these things could be purchased for $59 to $79 all day long. I’m talking over 20+ years ago. It was very gouged and literally had...
