Welp, after i said enough spending my (little) money on guns for now i end up at cabellas in michigan, if anyone has ever been there they know of the "gun library". a room where classic antique firearms are kept in a museum setting. well everytime im there i have to wander around and drool for a while. this time i saw an M1C on the wall, so that caught my attention. the price tag nearly made me faint, but behind it on the rack i saw something strange...something id never seen before in person...a French m93 lebel. "wow!" i said "i've never seen on of those on gunbroker or anywhere else for that matter" well, being brave i glanced at the price tag... 150.00 "that's it?" maybe thats the downpayment i thought. i know they are not the most desireable guns ever, but they're rare so i figured that was a bit low. Welp, i talked to one of the attendents. Surpsingly they took a good deal of time on a 21 year old kid looking at the cheapest rifle in the store. brought out the light, magnifying glass and bore snake and really tried to clean it up so i could look at it. the barrel looked bad. gunked up, i thought pitted for sure. but it took it anyway. made in 1916 it was in really good shape, except for the base of the buttstock that seemed to be burned a bit...(wonder where that might have happened, its an old wound) well once i got it home i really cleaned it. looks even better now! most suprisingly...the bore was filled with mud, not rust it is almost spotless now, no pitting. now the only problem is, where the heck do i get ammo for this thing?? not only does it use a RARE round, but it has to have a groove cut out of the base to work in the tubular magazine! but im committed, it MUST be shot, at least one load out worth. also, i looked up the average price for these, while i cant find any for sale anywhere, it seems from message boards they go for about 500 most places...so i think i did well! anyone have any idea where ammo might be had??
