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: S and. K. Insta Mount. M48

I can't speak for the M48 one but the on on my Nop5 Lee-Enfield is a winner.
Its been on there a few years at this point & has held zero perfectly.

I'm having the same problem too. Very frustrating.
Unfortunately in this day & age of massive spamming its a necessary evil.
No-one really likes it, but its a one-shot deal & its better than a million adverts for "electric prune pitters & gerbil squirters".

Re: finally picked up another no4 mk1

I've had great luck with the "S&K InstaMounts". They're ND/NT attaching to the rear sight pivot holes & clamping to the charger bridge. I like the version with their own proprietary rings as they sit as low as is functional with the No4. They also make one with a Weaver/Picatinny rail. The Weaver 4x...

Raw was the original, personally I like boiled, but the real deal, not the Home Despot stuff.

Re: finally picked up another no4 mk1

Its a "short" std buttstock someone has messed with a bit. For the forend it may need a little fitting to the individual rifle, or failing that several coats of Linseed oil, which will allow the wood to swell. Removed bayo lugs may indicate a replaced barrel or they were removed to "de-Militarise" i...

Re: CLEANING RODS

The jag wasn't used with the rope. The rope was used to pull the 2X4s from breech to muzzle. The T-Bar was used to push the jag the same way from breech to muzzle. For example the rope breaks so you use the T-Bar to push it out. I have a .PDF on the one correct way to wrap one so it fits in the butt...

Re: Gripe about package delivery services

I've had the same experience, left the note but I was home all day & they didn't knock or ring the bell. If they had the dog would have gone ballistic so it not just that I didn't hear a knock.

Re: CLEANING RODS

I have always used the brass rods but recently bought a carbon fiber rod. I like the carbon fiber but it has a threaded aluminum connector on the end for the jags. I covered the connector with tape to reduce scratching. I try to clean from the breech end to the muzzle ( but doesn't work very well o...

Re: CLEANING RODS

Being a Lee Enfield guy I don't have the cleaning rod problem, but its hard to push a patch through the bore with a "pull Through"! :? I never thought about it before. What did they use, the chain type pull through like the G3? Nope it was a rope. same idea though, but it got shoved in the butt wit...

Re: FIRST JET AIRCRAFT

I'm guessing the big box was a battery connected to a glow plug & the fuel line was something like propane as a starter. I seriously considered building a small one for a trail type mountain bike & fueling it with an "Acetio" Cavers carbide generator. I cant imagine any traffic court not just shrugg...

Re: Private gun sale question

AFAIK you can't straw purchase for a spouse when its declared as gift. I came across this some years a go when my wife wanted to surprise me. Girlfriend of a friend seems to be stretching that a long way.
