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: Trump Moves to Ban Bump Stocks

I wish people would understand that you can't legislate crazy. True, and I hear you on all points, but IMHO that is not the arguement that we - shooters & sportsmen - are now facing in this current debate. As I hear my co-workers and/or friends (who may or may not be firearms enthusiasts or owners)...

Re: Palmetto State Armory PA-10 .308 Rifles

FWIW I have a PSA 16” SS mid-length Freedom upper in 5.56mm that has been flawless. That price for a 308 AR platform is UNREAL! I built an AR 18” mid-length in 7.62x39mm and that cartridge is my FAVORITE in the ARs! Too bad that magazines are the weak link ... but the accuracy (using bulk $210/1000-...

Re: Lee-Enfield System

I dunnoh ... the way I read that link, LEC = Lee Enfield Calavry (not as Lee Enfield Carbine), same way where RIC = Royal Irish Constabulary. The link discussed many variations of “carbine” models and went on to call the ‘New Zealand carbines’ as just NZs. Not debating people ... just the way it rea...

Wow, immaculate shape! You see very few with the ‘zebra’ pattern color case hardening (that Stevens was

Re: ‘41 Lithgow - Lucky to hit paper ... @ 25-Yds! Wot?

Thanks for the comments guys! How do you intend to slug your bore? Well, for slugging I’ve had great results using pure lead sinkers with the hole through the center. It is the measuring that’s bitch with odd numbered lands and grooves. What I do is to wrap the slug with thin steel shim stock, full ...

Re: ‘41 Lithgow - Lucky to hit paper ... @ 25-Yds! Wot?

Muzzle centered in the aperture in the nosecap? - Not centered, no, it is a rad eccentric as Enfield Accurizings info says it should be, due to pressure built into the barrel bedding. How's the rifling look? - Mint, checks great w/ borescope, no pitting and appears uniform from jag work. How about ...

My new-to-me Lithgow No1 Mk3 is detailed here: http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=972&hilit=SMLE I refinished the stock, as it was do dark as to be black.

Re: Rust.

Look up ‘Frontier Cloth’ by Big 45. It looks like spiraled steel wool, but more ribbon like. It is a proprietary blend of stainless steel, monel, zinc and other alloys that is harder than rust, but will not damage or remove the bluing. Is is THE BEST and must be used or seen used to realize how awes...

Re: AMMUNITION ACCURACY

Try the Optimal Charge Weight method devised by Dan Newberry ... and you’ll get a more accurate load in less shots! His method identifies the ideal node for that rifle, powder and load. Most, if not all, F Class shooters use it or some similar variation thereof, like the older Audette ‘ladder’ metho...

Re: AMMUNITION ACCURACY

TOOLS - FWIW I use the Lyman flash hole deburrer and my precision loads are 1/2-MOA or less (scoped toys) without running through the OCW method yet either, that tailors the load to the harmonic node. OTHER - I also had a 9mm RIA (Armscor) 2011 (updated 1911) that had an unmarked 38 Super barrel in ...
