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.

Re: Making your own 6mm flobert in the privacy of your house

Re: Curiouser & curiouser, said Alice! (FAL mags)

They were originally Indian which is a bastardization of inch pattern.
The locking cut was modified by god knows who to be metric.
They work fine in metric FALs.

Re: storing ammo

Military ammo can with a good seal . NO cardboard, the stuff is a wick for moisture. If you must box use plastic boxes. Mine lives under my reloading bench in a climate controlled residence. If you're the really nervous type get one of those big silica gel dryer packs from online & drop it in there....

Re: Something I can recommend

I have the same unit & like it a lot. It works either length ways, without the mirror, or to one side with it. For sideways use you simply screw in or unscrew the mirror for best focus. This varies with bore size. It has 2 parts, a rigid rod with camera head & adjustable light, & a flexible cable th...

Re: What is this??

I never ever saw that type of fixture on any British web gear.
It was either round snap if small or "interrupted buckles" if large.

Since the Nov. 5 election that gave Democrats control...

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

How do you save money by wasting resources in a war? I just don't get it. It would make sense if they simply stopped making them with hammer spurs, but thats not what happened. I have heard the theory that it was done as a safety measure though, Initially for tank crews who could somehow cock the ha...
