    Merry Christmas my friend

    Do you have any pictures of the M91? Does it have the M91 barrel bands? Have the bolt and rifle stayed together? How is the stock condition?

    Poot,

    I may have JHP solution for your Taurus 1911. I had good luck with Hornady 230 grain XTP over 6 grains of Unique set to an overall length of 1.9 inches. The same load and OAL worked for Remington 230 grain JHPs. I even ran a magazine of mixed XTPs and Golden Sabers with no failure to feed or the dreaded three point bind on jacketed hollow points.
  4. Jim,
    Glad it worked out! I think that the T-53s have been surprising people with their accuracy and especially their phenomenal triggers. The one I kept is currently an on-going project for myself and my oldest son. Thanks for the update!
    Best,
    Poot

    Got the second T53 I got from you cleaned up. The bolt closed on my no-go gauge so I used the bolt from the first one as a donor. I still need to pick up a field gauge. The bore was rougher and I did not expect much but with cleaning and shooting it started showing some promise at the range.

    The first volley I forgot to extend the bayonet so the combined effects were not so good as shown below. The point of aim was the lower left 4 inch orange circle at 50 yards using light ball surplus



    After some shoot and clean and getting used to the trigger which is pretty nice for a Mosin Nagant the ugly gal started to show some promise.

    Then the final 20 round barrage gave better than good enough for battle on the eastern front results.



    I think this rifle is going to do just fine as a plinking gun at the range especially with some cast bullet handloads. Just thought you would like to know how it worked.:D

I'm looking for pre-war Yugoslav Mauser bolt number 36455. If you have it, let me know! I'll pay a finder's fee on top of the selling price.
