The interesting detail is the mention in the caption of the carabine being presented at some shows (exposition in French in this case can be translated as show) starting in 1904 to 1911...

Re: Removing safety detent ball

Removing safety detent ball

Hello everyone, I am restoring a 1917 M8, S.N. 39291 and I have encountered a challenge. That is how to dismantle the safety detent ball and the front sight ramp on the barrel jacket. Does any one have experience with either of these parts. Thank you for your help http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/...

Re: FN 1900 with scope bracket, value issue

Thank you all of you,
Those are relevant answers that help me. I will keep you posted. The rifle is in Europe and it can take a long time to bring it to Canada. I have imported an Auto-5 from France and it took 6 months.

FN 1900 with scope bracket, value issue

Good evening gentleman I have been offered a carabine Browning FN 1900 that is in very good shape. My issue is that someone has installed a scope bracket. In your opinion what is the impact on the value of the carbine? Thank you http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac357/Wakefield1234/0642e0ae-c0fd-45...
