    Default Got an all-matching Brazilian M1935 short rifle

    Well, after two unsuccessful attempts to get one of these pretty rare Brazilian M1935 short rifles (just 1,000 had been made) I finally got one in nice and all-matching condition. Thanks a lot to the generous gentleman who provided me with this fine rifle. Bore is bright with sharp rifling, so it should be a great shooter, too. The bayonet is from my own stocks and its serial number doesn't match that of the rifle. Frog is generic.

    Here some pictures:

    A very fine rifle. Nice that it has some marks on the stock so you won't be afraid to handle it.
    Every post I make is made with a request for corrections. I'm here to learn.

    No, for sure I'll not hesitate to take it to the range. I shoot all of my rifles - albeit with the necessary carefulness. But in this case I even got a complete set of replacement furniture (plus some metal parts) - restamped matching by the Brazilians:
