  • Posted in thread: Turk Ammo in Hakim on 10-27-2010 at 11:06 AM
    I have just picked up a Hakim:) to add to my 8mm stable. I have 1000+ rounds of Turkish 8mm,
    but have been warned not to shoot it in the Hakim :eek: due to its higher pressures. What I'm
    wondering is ...

    First, the bullet does make noise. There is a sonic wave on any supersonic bullet which creates
    the crack. This is why weapons truly intended to be silent are down loaded to subsonic bullets.
    On a .22...

    It would have a c-broad arrow stamp and there would be a red band painted around the stock to
    be Canadian or British.Neither appear on the rifle, I'll try to get photos up this week.

    It is more than likely a Lend_Lease that went through Canada to the Danes. Several theories
    abound on the notch in the receiver. One is it was done to clear longer ammo being loaded. Or
    it may have be...

    Well, that is all I can think of, but it is extremely well done and the bluing matches, making
    me think it was done by the arsenal.It is odd that someone would cut the receiver to take a
    longer cartri...

    looks like this Mauser receiver, except the notch isn't as wide.

  • Posted in thread: M1917 Receiver Notch on 04-13-2010 at 05:33 PM
    Yes, precisely. It is exactly at the 12 o'clock position, as if cut to allow longer cartridges.
    However, this doesn't make sense to me, as the magazine isn't long enough to take longer
    cartridges. It ...

    Thanks, but its not the clip guide. This notch is at the front-top of the receiver. Its
    identical to the type of notches cut in older Mausers and Commission 88s, when they went to the
    longer "S" cartr...

    I have just acquired an M1917.:) It is in great condition in original bluing. It does not have
    any signs of sporterizing. However, it has a top notch in the receiver, which I can't explain.
    I am NOT r...
