Re: How would you repair checking on the butt?

Re: Gun Broker jerks

Some people are just ‘know it alls’ and in this era of cyberspace and somewhat anonymity (less an email addeess or screen login) ... they feel they must comment on EVERYTHING.

I think the 75s are very underrated pistols in the States.
They actually tested as the ‘best overall pistol’ in the US Military trials to replace the aging 1911 45ACP with the Beretta, but Reagan wouldn’t let them be selected as the build site was too close to the Iron Curtain.

Re: RIFLE BORE PHOTO GUIDE

Here’s the photos taken of the bore on a Trapdoor using one of those LED 5.5mm endoscopes that are sold on the likes of eBay and Amazon, usually around $15. The 1st ones plugged into the USB port on laptop, but I had an old Google Nexus tablet (seen them used $25!) that was sitting unused and it is ...

Re: ‘Out of the box’ accurate (or is it precise?)

Nice rifle! But that target is demonstrating precision, not accuracy. But who really cares about that right now, as you just got it and that target shows it will SHOOT!
