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: Sporterized Ljungman...

Yes! BUT--I think it looks cool, and probably much less $$ than a correct rifle--could be a fun shooter/hunter, albeit a bit heavy.

Re: Walther PP32

Always liked the neat lines and heft of the Walther PP/PPK series. Beautifully made, and they were a bargain when (then) West German police surplused them years ago,

Thanks for the info--like to have good leather for my pistols, and "used" gun show finds are the way to go. Will keep my eyes open--

What he said! It is too easy to start questioning your manhood/attraction to other women--do not make the mistake of going from the frying pan into the fire. Stop and take some time before entering into another relationship---

Re: 1903 Springfield Griffin and Howe 28" target rifle

Admired many G&H sporters thru the years, never saw one of their target rifles. Appears to have a great piece of walnut, and whole gun finished as nice as any custom sporter they made. The tight bbl is a plus--I'd be tempted to take it to a NM shoot, just for old times sake. You would definitely get...

Re: Had to replace a Krag rear sight

Great work-around! Was it a PITA to mod the 1903 leaf?? Thank u for sharing this with us---I enjoy modded milsurps/beaters that retain their military flair. Plus, a new idea if/when I acquire another Krag in need of a sight--

Re: 1903 Springfield Griffin and Howe 28" target rifle

Headless cocking piece and all! I really like the classic big bore target rifles. When I was a kid, friend of my dad was an "across the course" shooter. One of his rifles was a 03 Springfield, cherry wood target stock and a Browning 1919 MG bbl. I can only assume he used that bbl because they were d...

Re: WW II memorial box saved

Kudos to you for keeping this important piece of history together.
As an aside, the Major retired the same year I enlisted in the Army as a 17 yoa baby soldier.
There were still some of the WWII types around--that generation gave us a great nation.

Re: Turk

Those 93 Turks are a fav of mine--only downturn is I'm afraid to use Turk ammo--has a rep for being "hot". Since I don't reload, limits me to searching gun shows for bargain-priced old boxes of US commercial 8mm. Since I did not have a 93 when the Romanian ammo was plentiful/cheap, I did not buy any--

Failed to buy 7383 when it was cheap and available. But--have a friend who has a lot of it, and has offered to supply me. Really appreciate Rob's info on this powder--want to try it in several milsurps--
