  • Rifle of the day

    Here post a bit of history of a rifle, calibers and a pic or two.

    I will start with ....

    9MM DESTROYER CARBINE


    The Destroyer Carbine is a small bolt action carbine usually chambered for the 9 x 23 mm Largo cartridge. It was used by Spanish police and prison services, including the Guardia Civil from the mid-1930s until the late 1960s, replacing the El Tigre Rifle. It continued the tradition, started in the 1890s, of issuing police units with a short, handy, repeating carbine in pistol ammunition calibre.

    It is essentially a scaled-down Model 1893 Mauser with two rear-mounted locking lugs and a Mauser-style two-position flip safety. The Destroyer fired the same ammunition as the standard-issue police handgun but used a 5-shot single stack magazine. The longer rifle barrel resulted in greater muzzle velocity, accuracy, and range.

    The Destroyer was initially manufactured in Eibar, Spain by Gaztanaga y Compania, then by Ayra Duria S.A. and possibly others, with some minor improvements made over time.





    Some people are using the carbine and rebarreling and chambering to the popular 9mm luger.
    Some even put surpressors for subsonic work.

    Great thread.


    K31 Swiss (Karabiner Model 1931

    Primary service rifle for Switzerland between 1931 and 1958 but also used by the Papal guard in Vatican City for their guards as late as the early 70's. Production followed Schmidt Rubin straight pull service rifle that began in 1889. Rifle fires a 7.5x55mm which is roughly equivalent to a .284 Win necked to 30 caliber but with a case capacity closer to .30-06. Straight pull action is very similar to gas operated semi automatic design except for the gas, springs or tubes. Production guns were very well made and accurate to 1.5" at 100 yrds with iron sights. There were about .5 million rifles produced making them more rare than other military service rifles such as Mosins or Mausers. Early production stocks were Walnut but later changed to Beechwood. It is not uncommon to find a "Troop Tag" detailing the issued soldier's name, unit number and home town under the rifle's butt plate.

        Swiss and Swedish rifles some of the best classic firearms in the world, if not the best. Austrians and Germans too of course.

            BROWNING T-BOLT

            T-Bolt. The return of a legendary rimfire. We all remember the first time squeezing a trigger, usually consisting of simply plinking a few tin cans. For some of us, those first shots were from an original Browning T-Bolt, one of the most accurate, handy and easy-to-shoot rimfires ever produced. Those days can now be relived with today’s T-Bolt, a rifle every bit the equal of the original, with new features that put this unique rifle in a class by itself. The straight "T" bolt design lets you load and eject with a simple pull back and push forward. This system is unequaled among rimfires for raw bolt action speed -- nearly as fast as a semi-auto 22. But you retain all the accuracy advantages of a bolt action design. Today's T-Bolt has even more than the original.

                Anyone who is good with good work? Forget about the hardware. Just the wood milling and cutting?

                      I want to buy wood like that and make one. It reminds me of a Gibson Guitar.
                      Who has a nice router and good skill? lol
                      I am actually thinking a much easier cuts with a flat inlet to insert a precut aluminum one.

                            PWS T3

                            This action is nothing but a Ruger 10/22 recevier converted to straight pull using a cam system.

                            The T3 Summit's cammed action is based on the quick and accurate straight-back-pull, straight-forward-push bolt design favored for Olympic biathlon competitions. Because the T-shaped bolt handle does not require the up-and-down motion of the traditional bolt action rifle, it can be cycled more quickly. The toggle-style bolt handle does not need to be grasped to be cycled. Instead, it is light enough to be flicked, or toggled if you prefer, back and forth with just the tips of the trigger and middle fingers (operators with longer fingers than mine can often cycle the bolt with just the trigger finger).




                            So anything avvailable for the 10/22 is also available for this straight pull variant...
