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: Interesting Gun Failures

Thanks for posting this. I had a Kaboom happen to me a couple of years ago and I plan on contacting the guy in this video to see if he can figure out what the problem was.

Re: Is it worth it?

I had one for 9 years starting in 2007. Back then, Midway would give you dealer pricing if you had one and the savings were pretty significant. I saved several hundred dollars on an AR15 upper I bought from them which paid for the license several times over. They don't do that anymore though, nor do...

I think that Sgt. Schultz carries a Krag in Hogan's Heroes. Otherwise that series is spot-on realistic, right?

Re: Gas Cylinder Refinish

I used Duracoat and it has held up really well over the past decade. There is a also a product called Caswell's Stainless Steel Blackener that I have read about but have not personally used.

BBQ/Engine Block paint works but tends to scratch off pretty easily.

Re: Help with 1898 Springfield Armoury Krag

Looks like it's in decent shape. Though not rare, many were turned into hunting rifles by cutting the barrel and stock down so it's nice to see a Krag in military configuration. Yours was made too late to have seen service in the Spanish American War but might have seen action in the Philippine Insu...

Re: Burns AKA Milstuff Refuses to Honor $380 Winning Bid on M39

While I agree that this is a dick move, it says right in the listing "NYC, NJ AND HAWAII DO NOT BID" Unless they edited the listing to add that after you bid, I suppose that they have the right to refuse to honor your bid. Might have come down to what side of the bed they got up from in the morning.

Re: How to adjust the trigger pull of the 1895 Nagant revolver

Looks like I'm stuck in the house tomorrow due to a big storm. Might as well pull my 1895 Nagant out of the safe and try this out.

Looks like lots of people who buy Garands from RIA never heard of the CMP. They're paying nearly 3x more than they have to.

Re: Request: A Tutorial on How to Anneal Rifle Brass

I have an old record player that I use. I take a shallow tupperware dish and fill it with water, enough so that when you place a case upright in it the water comes up to about the halfway mark. Place it in the middle of the turntable. Set it to 33.3 RPM (if you have one that can spin at 16rpm that m...
