Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Didn't some one invent a straw you could use to take out salt in water or have I watched too many sci fi shows
There were several, this is the most popular.
If you can use it regularly, then you can start a Harley by inhaling on the muffler though!

Re: where did you spend 4th of July 1976?

I hadn't move to the U.S.yet, so it wasn't a holiday in the U.K. which meant I was working.
I was somewhere in Brittany or Normandy as that was my week to go there for work & to pick up new customers.
It really was one of those "16 countries in 10 days & 7 nights" things!

Re: Enfield barrel bands don't fit? Mk4# 1 LB

Yes the new handguards & forend are slightly oversized to allow for individual fitting. Try carefully sanding the flat bottom/top where they meet, till the band fits. Then (if needed) the barrel channel & receiver bedding areas. Repeat in ever decreasing circles till it's "right". You may need to re...

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

He's a very meticulous person & he always cleans after shooting before the sun goes down. He's also shooting MkVII ball so he cleans for corrosive automatically.
(I'll remind him anyway, as I'm pretty sure he'll call me when it gets fired) :lol:

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

There's nothings wrong with the good old Lee "Whack-a-Mole"! I taught a total newbie to load .303 British with one on a picnic bench in the Ozarks, in an afternoon. He too was nervous at first, but pretty soon he was whacking out rounds at the rate of 2 every 3 minutes. (He's gonna kill me when he f...

Re: VISUAL REFERENCE GUIDE - Rifle No5 Mk1 Fazakerley

Now here's what I've been looking for regarding No5's with no bayo lug. Mayne it IS part of the history after all? After the Confrontation war, the Malaysian army began phasing out the Jungle Carbine. Many were passed to the Police Field Force, a paramilitary law enforcement force which was basicall...

Re: Shooting in the rain.

I've seen that on one or two occasions. I always assumed it was very fine particles of water atomized to an aerosol by the impact, but it could be steam I guess. I caught a ricochet from the bank once it was too hot to hold, hot enough to scorch a shirt & all the lead had gone it was just a mangled ...

Re: Mad Minute

Regarding cadence.
At that kind of speed (12 seconds for 6 rounds on average) there's a better way. Inhale while charging a new load of 5, let it out slowly as you fire 6, step & repeat. If you cant comfortably do a slow exhale for 6 seconds you're in really poor shape!
