The C39 V2 will accept most AKM accessories and aftermarket stuff. Another item Century corrected with the V2. You can trick it out if it makes you happy.

By the way, compared to the com-bloc wood, or plywood, this walnut and black nitride finish will make people bugged eyed. I paid $700 for mine. A real bargain for this kind of fit and finish. The...

Yes. I have some Walnut in my limited inventory. The walnut on the C39V2 is amazing. Fits very snugly and finished beautifully. Not a hard coating that chips, but a Linseed or Tung oil type. I've...

The major improvement was a stiffer, higher quality set of springs from Wolf. The recoil spring is a larger diameter material. The C39 was criticized for being too weak. This new Wolf spring...

Don't really understand why our troops with their Krags felt they were outgunned by the Spanish and their 7MM Mauser rifles. The ballistics do favor the Mauser somewhat. The Krag holds five rounds vs...

If you have heard these Springfield made rifles are the smoothest bolt action rifle ever made, believe it. This one is in excellent condition. I also own a K98k Mauser, M1917 Eddystone made Endfield,...
