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: What pistol to get?

Decent nickel plating job for once. Nobody seems to shoot .32 caliber in a pistol, so I bet you got a decent deal. Should be an excellent gun.

Best Regards,

Re: Political correctness?

Perhaps you didn't notice the nazi flags along side that CSA battle flag at the Charlttesville protest of CSA monuments. Were you blind or just dumb? People died to get rid of that flag too. You really dishonor a lot of vets with that remark, not to mention others.

Re: Political correctness?

Ummh, a lot of people died to get rid of that flag, lest you have all forgotten that. Now if you aren't white, I cannot see anybody not in the fringe having much good to say about it at all. Out side of the old CSA, nobody thinks well of what that flag represented for good reason. Now snowflakes, do...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

I have the dies and have formed this brass with 50-90 Sharps. I once had a problem with Jamison 43 Mauser brass and had to anneal it and then run it through my dies. Your cases might need annealing as well and it really doesn't hurt them if done right. I'll send you a PM shortly. Best Regards, Marj

Re: French 1892 revolver

Ummh, might have to invest in a mold. Send some details from Accurate if you can since I found their website harder to use than most. Sorry to hear about not being able to get a Ruby. I went out shooting with a buddy who had some modern semi-auto pistols and he loved that Ruby more than his stuff. A...

Re: What pistol to get?

Wow, mine is a well worn police turn in but, it is mechanically in great shape with a pristine bore. I'll take function over form most any time. My gun book says, "The Smith and Wesson Model 10 was one of the most successful revolver designs ever." Book says about 7 million were produced, with 6 mil...

Re: What pistol to get?

I got a S&W model 10 in 38 special with a 4" bull barrel with fixed sights. Not state of the art, but a classic revolver. I believe there are tons of them out in use. It does hit what it aims at and I'm no great shot. Best Regards, Mark BTW, there is always the 1892 8mm Lebel French Revolver. Nothin...

Re: French 1892 revolver

Wow, you got a mould for that thing. I am not worthy. Where did you get it? Those aren't easy to find. Those pistols definitely have character few others have.

Best Regards,

BTW, Next you will want a Ruby pistol.

Lucky you. Mine was redone either during or before WWII. No holster at all.

Re: Source for Snider firing pin protector

S&S Firearms in the states might have it. Hopefully this link goes straight to the part. It might be for a muzzle loader, but call and ask them if it will work. The metal part has a square female connector to the firing pin with rubber facing the hammer end. With any luck the muzzle loader is the sa...

Re: AUCTION PRICES. PHX AZ

I've been able to finally access Gunbroker's advanced function to search past auction sales and those prices aren't horrible. I've seen the same item vary by double at times. The M38 Mosin actually sounds like a decent price. The Carcano depends on your taste, not horrible, but not exactly a full mi...

Re: M4 sherman In WWII

I got this video from Military History Visualized covering what caused the most tank kills in WWII. https://youtu.be/O5DcY8TmOpA Surprisingly it backs a great deal of what Moran said, especially air attack kills on armor. It also supports his discussion of the value of tank reliability as a signific...
