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: BM-59 or M14?

Park your money and invest it in a few months. It should be a buyers market for most anything soon.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

7.65mm French is well above the local gun show crowd around here. Maybe an expensive to attend collectors show with expensive prices...maybe. Disdain for all things French is rampant here.

BTW, I did see that Grafs or Midway now carries the brass though.

Re: Good Place To Get Magazines?

I will have to give them a call and make sure they are not Triple K ones. I was told to steer clear of them by more than one source. That's sad though since they are newly manufactured.

Re: USPS announces it will be selling FESTIVUS stamps

I am old and getting grumpy. Next I will ask you to get off my lawn. Daughter suggests I start smoking weed. She might be on to something...... cannot afford that though.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

I think that is the length that fit the chamber. Originally it was longer, but the rounds would not go into the chamber all the way. I performed this task with the barrel out of the gun. A bigger bullet should be better either way since the mould I have is too small/light. I usually use Lee moulds i...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Looks like I will invest in a heavier bullet mould. The length difference was approximately .100". Hopefully that will solve the problem. 1.125 verses 1.025 for overall length.

Re: 7.65 French Long.

I will supply answers for those questions, just not up to it now. I will want to immediately want to make up new rounds, but I might need a new mould first. I did save two of my old rounds to compare to the newer ones. I'll have to be extra precise in measuring them. Remember, this is a lot like wor...

Re: 7.65 French Long.

Providence has willed me to visit the range today and I tried out some reloaded 7.65mm French long rounds. I fired off about one dozen of the Starline brass reloads and had numerous jamming incidents. I also fired off 5 of my hand made cases with my reloads and they worked flawlessly. I remain unimp...

Re: Need Lebel Parts To Copy

BTW, the magazine tube assembly should not be super glued together. I am now trying epoxy. The superglue failed about three times. I am now giving the epoxy a full 24 hours to cure. I also had to epoxy one of the pins to the barrel band springs. One did hold well enough with a "peened" press fit. Be...

Re: Midway Movie Review

If you watch at a theater again, try the first row. I once saw The Great Waldo Pepper in full theater that way since that was all there were left and it was similar to 3D during the flight scenes. It is a cheap thrill, but a thrill none the less. Sized up some .330 diameter cast bullets to .325 for ...
