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: Ishapore scope mount?

Well, ended up ordering the S&K mount as a D&T wasn't available. It sure looked shaky but mounted solid. Took about two hours with a Dremel on the synthetic stock to properly mount it. thanks for the recommendation!

Re: what to do with 1909 arg ?

I think 8mm is also a great choice. Barrels are very available and economically priced. Components as well. I've got a mutt K98k with a Czech surplus barrel on it. I handload Rem 185 grain .323 bullets and it shoots sub MOA if I do my part.

Re: Scoped the MAS 36

I did a lot of looking and found very few examples of the 36 having been scoped and if there was one issued that way I didn't find it. That doesn't mean that it was never done but all I found were one off special set ups here and there. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y113/GuzziRider/20171212_1612...

Re: Rust Bluing Tips?

Suspend the parts in a pot large enough so they don't touch water. Cover with aluminum foil. Use 2 pints tap water and steam for 10 minutes. Don't need to worry about water quality and much faster.

Re: Rust.

Boil the magazine in water for 30 minutes. Soak in ATF. Then card with 0000 steel wool.

Re: R. FAMAGE pawnshop-sporter project

When you consider these rifles were originally chambered for 7x57, then armory re-bored, rifled and chambered to .30-06, it is miraculous that they shoot as good as they do. A 1.25 in group at 100 yds is plenty good to have a 400 yd hunting rifle.

Ishapore scope mount?

Need a drill and tap scope base for a 2A MIII Ishapore. Anyone know of a source? I've scoured the internet with no luck. Seems like Weaver used to make one as did a couple of other companies.

Re: How many hours of work to make a Mauser Receiver

I realize that arms manufacturers will make parts in batches and then assemble them. Also there are some examples that I read about like the Radom factory & Czech factories being taken over with large stocks of receivers captured and then used to assemble new rifles... So I ask.. How many man hours...

Re: R. FAMAGE pawnshop-sporter project

Looks like trigger to me. You may need an aftermarket trigger or a job on your issue trigger to bring out the potential. Try replacing the trigger pins and polishing the sear, cocking piece interfaces.

Re: Make your own super long cleaning rod

What a great idea! I am a cheapo and just bought two sectional rod sets and screwed in an extra section to give me the right length. the one piece rod is a better idea.

Re: Oil Blackening (bluing) screws?

Linseed oil is fine. Yes practice on a few screw heads and you will get the technique down. Do the heating in reduced light so you can visualize the colors. On screws heat the shaft just below the screw head and let the heat migrate into the head. You can control the color better that way.

Re: Siamese Type 66 range report.

I have also had excellent results with my M66. Used pulled Turk 154 grain 8x57 bullets and recovered flake powder with Buffalo Brass cases made from 45-70. CCI 200 primers. Weighed the 8x57 load and reduced by 20% as a starting point. Got 2 inch groups at 100 yds off sandbags. The 154 grain bullets ...
