Wish me luck finding the bayonet, but I remember it was not cut down, but I didn't have the scabbard for it.

Found a good deal today at a local gun store on this one. It's a German K98 made in 1939 at the Berlin-Lübecker plant.

Chach, nice Albanian. An Albanian SKS is pretty rare. Seems like only 10,000 were built and half of those were destroyed. I never did understand the sling swivel right where your cheek would lay. I guess all Albanians shoot left handed.

The Albanian SKS had another unique feature, that differd it from the Russian and Yugo models, can't remember what it was... Handguards?

Just remembered, the shape of the bolt retractor.

One of AIM's recent batch? British, Indian, or Australian? (They apparently only had 4 Lithgow Aussies.)

They are supposedly in the process of unwrapping and sorting another batch. Depending on the reports from this first batch, I may snag one from the next round to keep my BSA company.

British, asked for WWI date. Its a blessing and a curse that I work 20 mins from AIM. Razz

Pretty specimens, but I guess the Russians never heard about cylinder gap...

Do you get alot of powder spray when you shoot it?


I believe Nagants actually close the gap pressing the cylinder to the barrel when you fire, Is this true?

Their handguards and stocks were also different.

The Albanian SKS has an elongated handguard and stock that runs the length of the entire gas system:


The standard SKS (including Russian, Romanian, Chinese, and Yugoslavian SKSs) has a shorter handguard and stock:

Unfortunately, Swedish Mausers aren't one of my areas of expertise. Perhaps George85019 or Gambit, or another Swedish Mauser owner, can help us out.

Beautiful 45 Cal, I want one of the Kimbers. Its the kind of target rifle I like.

I have had to date a Remington 40XR and a 540X or as I have seen them later called 541. Whats not to like about a heavy barrel target .22.

Fine rifle,but after a few shots its boring .
The one I bedded just does the same hole off sandbags.Trigger is adjustable but it breaks like glass at 1 1/2 lb.
Seems to like the Rem target match mil spec surplus that comes in tin foil.Actually that is all that I have tried
I have another one in box and got to bed it also for other grand daughter.
The peeps are pretty good,and I am not planning scopes.
My girls were first taught with irons and are decent shots,their hunting remingtons have scopes,they think that is cool even though their are cheep scopes.Their a/r's are irons also.
