Re: yugo shooting high

I am crippled up pretty bad, I would shoot my M1 rifle in my club's highpower rifle matches. I didn't wear any of the gear the other shooters used, just a t shirt between me and that buttplate. I picked up at least one good bruise each time as it would get away from me during the rapid fire string. ...

Re: Pics from before Springfield Sporters closed shop.

Thank you for posting the photo's. It's a shame that S/S stock is now in different hands. Greed will kick in and the prices will soar. They already did. Centerfure systems has a bunch of Mausers from them as well as bayonets. S S had things organized pretty well for the parts. For instance the mode...

Re: yugo shooting high

It should stay in place. And if you are good with a file it won't look to bad. Put a sight hood on it when you get it to the height you like and you are good to go.
But a factory sight will look better.

Re: yugo shooting high

Barley corn is the term for that type of front sight.
Like rapidrob wrote, use the jb weld, shape it and sight your rifle in. Then figure out which height you need.
I saw this and was going t suggest the Swede front sight as they are sold by height.

Re: 1917 Movie

If they want to save money and still make a good movie they should hook up with reenactors. Those guys will have the correct weapons and uniforms. Lots of vehicles. Hell they will dig the trenches as well... I finally saw " they shall not grow old", I liked it very much. More so as I don't think I h...

Re: My rifle from Afghanistan

Cool souvenir. Looks like a standard Kyber Pass made copy of the Martini.
The stock looks like it was for another rifle entirely.
Nice wall hanger.
