Neat set up! Perhaps we can add such a course at our local milsurp match.

Re: Back with a 1917

Welcome back! No expert, but when they first came into the USA all I saw were blued---
Your plans to use your revolver as a trail gun touches my nostalgia button--I enjoy roaming the desert with vintage

Never had a BM--always liked its smaller size compared to the Star Super--nice gun, and the Guardia connection/box add to the

Best of both worlds! Your sporter is a classic in its own right with the Redfield peep and O3 front sight.

Re: My FEG PA-63.

I have its clone, 'cept in .32 ACP. Keep it hidden in the car as an emergency "back-up" piece. Probably a better choice would have been 9mm Mak, but the .32 was sooo cheap!

Re: FR7

I like what RWS opined---that said, a guy at our milsurp shoot used a very nice 1916 arsenal-redo to 7.62 NATO.

Re: Noob Question: Fitting Bent Bolt to Receiver

Looks like you did a good job! I just got a beater, bubba'd (is this a word??) No 4Mk1* on which I will attempt to commit refurb. As I am tool-challenged, never had the nerve to attempt butchery before--figure this one can't be made worse than it already is.

Prof, I like what you are doing to improve an oldie albeit modded goodie.

Re: Faux 1909 Carbine Sniper

Great looking/shooting little carbine. Is that a "rope-wrapped wrist"?? Sounds like a song lyric, or a book title--"The Hardy Boys and the case of the Rope-Wrapped Wrist"--
