Re: Field expedient (sort of) pull through

NIce!
I've done the same trick for a weight myself.
Some weights were also soft iron (steel) also.

Re: Ishapore Sling

Depending on the version of the bottom metal you'd use whichever was correct.
There are (at least) 3 the one shown using the cast swivel mount, a replacement bolt with a parallel swivel & another bolt with an angled swivel.
Additionally there were commercial models as well like the Parker-Hale.

Re: Ishapore Sling

"King Screw" is in inverted commas because its not really called that.Its the "main screw" right in front of the magazine well.

Re: Ishapore Sling

The British never taught "slinging up" so, to them, it wasn't relevant.
Yes, either that or get a 3rd sling swivel for the "King Screw" or sling swivel fitted, depending on what you have & use a "Ching Sling" type.

By his telling of the tale its pretty much "get an invite, show up & shoot". Then I went to the website got a very different (& more believabl...

Re: spotting scope question

There's a rule in optics. It revolves around insane high magnification claims. Astronomy telescopes aren't "powerful" they are light gatherers, not magnifiers, primarily. It has to do with the way wavelengths of light are "bent" (refracted) in optical glass, but to keep it simple you need 1" of obje...
