Fishing for interest
« on: January 02, 2019, 04:37:18 pm »
Thinking of Offering my Berthier Artillery Carbine  :-\

As shown below....


Comes near turn key...that is,  all but loaded ammo ....Though I have some 50 rounds of factory Prvi Partizan (if we can figure how to ship it legally)

 1. the Carbine ( bright bore, strong rifling slugs to .329 )
 2. the Bayonet w/ scabbard & frog
 3. 1 set of Lee Dies (as new ) I loaded about 25 rounds
 4. about 150 cast & sized bullet (50 are GC'ed )(it likes 12.1 grains of TrailBoss )
 5. 50 brand new Prvi Partizan  8MM Label Brass  
 6. 4 - 3 round clips (original & excellent )
 7. the afore mention loaded Prvi Partizan factory rounds.





Not, looking for trade however

I won a can of pop shooting one of those at an impromptu match when I was in college.  We were on a field trip courtesy of Uncle Sam at the time...…….

$500 shipped seems pretty reasonable....what gets ya is needing all the leather gear, uniform, helmet etc. :( :P ;D.

BTW...you can ship that ammo legally through UPs but you just need to go to a shipping center not a UPS store.  It also needs to be marked ORMD.

You got that right! Leather gear isn't too awfull pricey, but the most important item of French uniform....the GREATCOAT.... A really good one will set you back as much as M-2 is asking, or you can get a Chinese knock off on E-bay for a little less than half as much.

Chinese stuff is funny...sometimes it is dirt cheap and teh next item is more than WPG and looks like absolute crap.
