Well anyway I go back to set up to shoot, I was going to shoot the Garand and the Mosin Nagant, I figured the Nagant would dis/relocate my shoulder far better than any chiropractor would.
I set up the ammo for the Nagant, I was going to use the stripper clips I bought at NRAAM last year from a vender that specialized in Mosin-Nagants.
Before I could shoot the RSO came back to me and told me that my 7.62X54R is too hot for the range....I couldn't argue..it is their range....but I was surprised...I thought God's own caliber of 30-06 was more powerful. Oh well.... I boxed up the Nagant and put the ammo away.
I then set up the clips for the Garand
I fired at 75 feet, the max distance of the Range and this is the group I shot..Not a bad grouping. I will adjust the sights over. Should have done it after 1 clip.
I finished shooting the Garand, then went ahead and "Snaked it"
The Garand was fun to shoot and everytime it went "Boom" it was the sound of freedom :) and even nicer, it cycled flawlessly.
..I guess I will have to find an excuse to go to the range again :)
I reloaded and mentally adjusted the sights and point of aim, the .22LR S&W had fixed sights.
I then reloaded again...
And finished off my ammo I had brought...Man that was fun..
I am hoping Jim or Mack will have an idea....
Edit"I found it.."Google" is a good thing..
The Zastava M98/48 (often called Mod.98/48, Model. 98/48, Yugo K98k) was a refurbished bolt-action rifle, chambered for the 7.92×57mm Mauser, a cartridge that was temporary adopted in the years after World War II by the Yugoslav People's Army. This design was a refurbished Mauser Kar98k rifle that had been left-over by Germans or captured by partisans during World War II.
These rifles are actually Karabiner 98k rifles that were left over by Germany or captured by Marshal Tito's partisan army, or Liberation Army. Despite the name of the rifles (which may lead to misunderstandings), the only difference between a Nazi German K98k and a Zastava M98/48 consists of the markings and the front barrel band. They are virtually identical to each other, since they are still the same rifles at their core.
The original German markings were scrubbed and replaced by the Yugoslav ones. The most noticeable markings are the Yugoslav Crest and the "Preduzece 44"(It refers to the site where it was refurbished; for example "Preduzece 44" stands for "Institute 44"-Kragujevac, Serbia-the current location of Zastava Arms) present on the receiver's ring. Another noticeable marking is the one present on the left side of the receiver, the "Mod. 98/48". The "/48" is absent on all the rifles that have been refurbished before 1950.
I also saw an Century Arms looked like a HK-91 clone in 308...for about 6 and a half...but it is Century arms...
I then contact UPS via phone and got the run around, had to set up for "residential" pickup...and that was $14 more...The lady on the phone told me that "You could have used the UPS Store", I replied..."I tried....Your company policy forbid them accepting my rifle.to ship."
Rifle ready for pickup
