Are 7.62x54r and 7.62x53r the same?

Ishapore Lee-Enfield 2A1

Does anyone know where I could find an Ishy Enfield in .308 WIN? Are they pricey? Do they share all of the quality characteristics as their predecessors? Thanks

I suppose my criteria weren't well thought out, and I apologize. I like the machine pistol look, although I have been researching around and found the Ruger P95 (not a submachine style, I know)....

High Capacity Sidearm

I'm looking to buy a high capacity sidearm. I don't necessarily want a typical semi-auto like a Beretta or Glock, but something that is a submachine gun style pistol like a Mac-10. Criteria for what...

I've looked at the Henry's and I agree with anyone who thinks they are cool (pretty much any lever-actions are), although the Ruger looks ideal now. I'm semi-new to the firearms scene, so that's why...

All I've heard from a few people is that this rifle jams a lot (after maybe every 40 rounds). Sounds like this gun is a just a wall ornament and not a shooter to me.

I read that the Russians went back to the Mosin-Nagants only during WWII because of problems the Svt and Avt 40's had.
