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: Sight Pictures for the M1 Garand

Excellent write up for those who are skillfull enough and whose rifles are accurate enough to decern those differences. Most shooters would have large groups just due to their shaky hold or average 3 minute rifle. Those competers who can see a difference in a 6 ' O'clock hold and a 'flat tire" hold ...

I would think it would be onfiscated at the least, and an arrest possible at the worst.

What goulardi says is true. If it says in your house, no one should ever know. A proper stock will be about $100 and a sling $25. Good enough for a family wall hanger.

WW2 front sight blade. Barrel may be a Rock Island which makes me think rifle was rebuilt from parts. It would be strange though since RI barrels would not have been used at the time the Rem parts were put in. More reason to believe gun was assembled out of parts.

By federal law any firearm with serial number removed is illegal. The stock has no finger grooves, the stock was made in the 1940's. Hard to tell the approx year of the gun since it has all the tell tale marks removed. Judging by the large hole on the left side of the receiver, it is a WW2 Remington...

Re: Help! I had a D'oh moment

Sorry...I was wrong, it looked like you had not returned, and then you left no comments.
Can you hold a cigarette lighter in a way to burn and consume the patch? You can hold a cold compress to the barrel if you are worried about temper... but a lighter flame won't hurt the steel.

Re: Help! I had a D'oh moment

OP has not been back since he posted his problem. If he followed the advice which he obviously didn't read, the patch should have been nocked right out.

Re: Whitneyville Walker

You may have to shorten the "hand" which is the pawl.
There is also a method to make the cylinder lock drop sooner so the cylinder does not spin too far.
Right now I forget what that method to time is.

Another words the chamber had been buggered up? If Gunbroker does not do you good somehow, nor the seller give a partial refund, I'd spread the word as best as I could. Most places guarantee a return for a reason like that. ( Although that could also happen from a show purchase also.) Glad you now h...

Re: I bought a lemon

One in ten threads on the barrel. He could turn the barrel by hand if that was the case. He could estimate the overage by making shims from soda cans and seeing how many could be added to bolt face before the gauge stuck. Then measure the shim(s)
