A good rule of thumb when you buy a foreign surplus rifle that has detachable magazines is to buy at least one extra and more if you can. As with the rifle you found, extra mags can be difficult to...

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this thread. As it has been forever, there is no clear consensus on when, or how often, to clean a rifle and there's nothing wrong with that.

While I agree that it shouldn't be controversial, I've seen far too many arguments over it.

I'm not suggesting that a rimfire bore should never be cleaned. I'm saying that once clean, it shoots...

Three years ago I bought a stainless steel Sabatti Rover Tactical rifle in .223 Remington. It's a heavy sucker at 11 pounds without rings or scope. Other than mount a Weaver T-36 to it, the only...

Yesterday I tested half a dozen cartridges in my Walther UIT Standard rifle to see if I could find one to use in our local 100 yard "cheap" .22 match. Cartridges must cost less than $7 a box.

You may have a magazine problem if the bolt is shaving the bullets. It could be the angle the cartridges are held at by the magazine.

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. IMO, there's nothing grotesque about the MTR stock. It's similar to the stock on my CZ-557 which is very comfortable, especially from the bench.

For $38 you can buy a DIP 11mm Picatinny rail adapter that works just fine.

Why would you want to D&T when the adapter does the same job without altering the receiver?
