Re: MRE Post Card

Thank you for your service! LOVE your comment about the box passing ... but not the contents.

I can't imagine what else you've experienced (besides near death from MRE poisoning), but thanks for sharing that with us!

Movie - Siege of Jadotville

Amazing true story of ~180 Irish troops of a UN "peace" keeping force that finds themselves outnumbered, surrounded and attacked by indingeniuous forces led by mercenaries. As usual, the bad guys are the behind-the-scene politics and politicians. POLITICS - Derived from the Greek words of 'poly' - t...

Yippee ... found a PH 5A aperture sight for my SMLE!

... had to buy it from a New Zealand gunsmith, but even w/ international shipping I paid roughly ~1/2 of what recent ones have sold on eBay for. And as a bonus, it was complete w/ the spring and longer screws needed to attach it. Just need to complete my stock refinishing project so I can finally fi...

Re: My first SMLE, 1945 Lithgow

Just check to make sure there are recoil plates installed in the stock. Remember, forestock comes off before the buttstock.

Looks great! I just picked up a '44 and am still getting cosmoline out of the wood! I checked the headspace using the "spent primer" trick and it's tight.

Good on you! Awesome story and thanks for your efforts. I bet you made a life-long impression (education?) on the son! In a way, I do the same thing when tesching people to shoot pistols, as our 180-yard 'open range' berm is a large sand hill. I'll have them shoot at 4" & 6" square wood blocks place...

And I'll admit it ... I still covet that 5A rear sight! Haha!

I lost out on one (auction) a month ago, w/ original instructions & box, that went for $262, IIRC. This week one - not as complete w/ info or box - just went for > $450! Whoa ...

Re: Reloading PSL, deformed cases

Also, I'm assuming these cases with the wrinkles are a no-go for reloading now, correct? I really can't get a good perspective if there's any depth or sharp creases to the dent or wrinkles, but if wary - I wouldn't chance it, at least on full power loads. A sharp fewture is a source of stress riser...

Re: Reloading PSL, deformed cases

Can you turn the gas off & eject manually to test? Not on a stock PSL. Even then, the gas piston is affixed to the bolt carrier. It is an "all gas" design, so that's why I advise regulating the gas port as well as the ejector tweak, as RRob mentioned. Simple google search on AK forums will find it....

Re: Reloading PSL, deformed cases

First thought, PSLs are way over-gassed. I drilled out the gas port hole and put drilled set-screws into it. Somewhere else, I believe on the AK Forums there is a tutorial on modifying the angle of the ejector to avoid killing the brass. I'd try the gas port first.

Re: M1 garand reloading

For semi-auto use I use a Stoney Point/Hornady headspace comparator, then check 5-10 cases that were fired in the rifle and set the shoulder back 0.003" to 0.005". Some used a fixed Wilson gauge and set to the lower step. Point you want to set the shoulder back enough for reliable functioning and bo...
