BAMM rifle question
« on: July 19, 2015, 09:52:06 AM »
I have two questions.

First, I have a Swedish Mauser and the end of the barrel is threaded. To protect the threads I purchased a flash hider.

Is this legal? It's not a brake and is more of a cosmetic thing to me. I just need some clarification on this for future reference.

Second question, is there a better sling out there for these guns?

Ck, I would say the flash hider is not legal as it was never on one in the military at any time. Why don't you just get the knurled nut that came on them and that would be correct , look sharper and I bet more pleasant for the other BAMM shooters by not throwing muzzle blast out sideways. Mauser slings are all pretty much the same.......Dusty Boddams

I shot my Mauser M1896 at Winter Range last February leaving the threads exposed. I have second "new to me" Mauser M1896 for this coming Februarys match, that I'm still trying to work up a load for.

I've got a Hunter Leather Whelen 1" sling on my Swede.   Looks about right, and is very adjustable, as compared to the original Mauser slings, which were closer to carrying straps than to a good sling.

Takes a little study to get it rigged the first time.

Model 220.

And if you want the hooks for adjustment rather than laces, the Model 200 in 1" width will give you a good sling, too.

Good luck, GJ

so slings are legal on BAMM rifles? I guess it would be up to each Match Director as so far SASS is not meddling in to BAMM shooting far as I know.

And slings are still illegal on main match leverguns and shotguns are they not?

Slings are now allowed on long guns in SASS CAS.

No such allowance has been made in SASS WBAS in the latest rule book that I could see.

I ended up ordering a thread protector for it. As far as slings go, the Turner Saddlery is catching my eye but it is pricey.

Well on the BAMM rifles it just makes sense because we have shooters doing sling wraps and throwing lead off hand.
LD, get that mosey ready cause we are going to have a large time!

it stays ready. Has a nice sling and I plan to wrap it and shoot off my hind legs like I always do. Fast and furious battle style. None of that sittin' bench restin' business.

The Krag has yet to be fired but I have some legal all lead ammo for it. I know the hopper mag is slower than the stripper clip reloadable rifles but it ain't like I am in any kind of the runnin' anyhoo's.

LD, cowtown scout shoots a krag and he will surprise you how fast it can be loaded. He grabs 5 off a  prairie belt flips open the lunch box and just drops them in. Very slick and well practiced.  Dusty

Best and cheapest if the current crop of 24/47 mausers or m48 which is the exact same rifle minus an arsenal rebuild. Mosins in carbine and rifle are good solid guns. Stepping up 03 and 03a3's . Main thing is condition. Don't buy junk,go get one with the best bore to be found load lead and go BAMM.
