    I picked up a Bethier 1916 carbine from a local gunshop this weekend for $89, I never seen one before, and it seemed like a reasonable price, so I snagged it.Anyone have any idea how much it is worth, it is complete, and has about 90%++ original blueing, but some has started to turn brown.Wood is near perfect, all numbers matchimng except bolt.

    I dont know much about it, and I want to know if anyone knows how to get the bolt out of it??? I tried pulling the trigger to remove it, but I don't see any other bolt release levers....

    Anyone know where I can get some 8mm lebel rounds, I heard you can form them from .348 winchester brass, and I seen that old western scrounger lists them for $50/20 rounds.... Too expensive for me....

    To err is human. But to really screw things up you just about have to have a computer.
