Went scuba diving this week for the first time in almost 10 years, here in Spain (water in Norway is too bloody cold).

Had a double dive today, out almost all day on the boat. Had a lovely time. Saw barracudas, octopus, and lots of fishies. Gotta say it was a good day!

Just discovered a gun store in a neighboring province has the following in stock ( they mail order )

Swiss K31, Swiss K11, Steyr Mannlicher m95 & 95/34 carbines. Also some 1895 Nagant revolvers.

I'm definitely gettin the nagant revolver. Any of you chaps got some words about them rifles there? The Swiss rifles look pretty good and the actions look smooth and sexy, I might get a carbine and a full rifle ( theyr 275ish each). Not so sure about the mannlicher as it ?requires? en bloc clips ( can it be fired without? ).

I might have to get ANOTHER gun safe, right after I got my first gunsafe. This is leading to the ominous " Gun room ".

"F***K upgrading my computer for another 6 months, here's another relic that I dont have yet!!!!!"


edit: is there treatment for this addiction?

IIRC the Steyr Mannlicher 95 is supposed to be really loud and also is a straight pull to work the bolt action. (From our research for Carpathian Crosses :D)

Also you have to really WANT treatment for it to work.

Aye, the M95 is straight pull. It fires 8x56R, which very likely may not be easy to find.


The K31 and K11, on the other hand, are GREAT rifles. The Swiss know what they're doing. Very accurate, and their straight pull action is very effective. I think 7.52mm is a little less common these days, though...

The long M95 isn't THAT loud, but the M95 Carbine with its very short barrel and strong cartridge.... it kicks like a mule and roars like a dragon. HUGE fireballs (far larger than any M44 or M38 you'll ever see)...

so basically I need to buy em all? I have some extra interest in the steyr because that was the base rifle for the Ross design, the very accurate pretty mans gun that jammed up like a bugger for us poor canucks in ww1.


You guys is gonna make me hit up the "ffuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" thread when I have to pay for those 4 rifles...

Also I can get my hands on the brass for em, and I already cast boolits, so I will just acquire a push through sizer to get some .323 or .314 down to size, or hunt around for a mould in the correct size.


edit:

Recoil is higher or lower than a k98k firing 200 grain tips?

For the carbine, far higher, especially with properly loaded surplus ammo since most new factory ammo you'll get are far under-loaded, similar to what loading books say. When I say that it kicks like a mule then I mean it. Only thing that I've shot that had a similar/slightly stronger recoil was the 9.3x62 and the 9.3x64.

I've clocked the surplus ~200gr. bullet at around 800m/s, with the carbine version going at around 700m/s.

I work hard and I save my money, and guns is about the one hobby that I spend more than 750 $ a year on.
