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.

the only thing that is "bad" about the 52, is after all that design and engineering that went into it, for some unknown reason the Czechs got a shot of stupidity and made a cast firing pin instead of a milled one
True. And mine broke. But I replaced it with a better one. All is good now.

Re: My $99 CZ-52

Ok. It’s what I was told somewhere. Just doing my part to spread confusion. LOL. I do know the action is strong from my past load testing. I went a bit hot with some tests but it all held together. I was young and dumb and very fortunate. My max load test pushed an 85 grain Hornady XTP .312 bullet a...

I did replace new hardened rollers. Haven’t had much chance to do any shooting with it sense.

Re: My $99 CZ-52

Thanks. I think you would find the engineering great. They were designed to withstand the power Of The Czech 7.62x25 high power machine gun ammo. That ammo would blow a tokarev apart.

Re: Swiss M-78 Load Development and Results

I retested my 20 grain load of 2400 powder at my local 100 yard range. I loaded three extra to shoot first as fowlers. After the fowlers, I waited a few minutes for barrel to cool and to get my LabRadar set up and organize my junk. I then loaded the five rounds in the tube magazine and got busy. I c...

Why can’t it ... ? And of course I’ve been known to bend a barrel or two. Actually 5, but only one was a modern centerfire. The others are BP replica fowlers and that’s how you adjust to your point of aim from load of choice.
Same here! LOL.

43 Beaumont powder choices?

I’ve done okay using IMR 4198 in my Beaumont. But am looking to make use of the other powders I have on hand, other than black powder. Looking at my Lyman 47th reloading handbook, under 45/70 loads for trap doors, I see loads for some of my other powders. Such as Rx7, 3031, 4227, 2400 and unique. Am...

Swiss Vetterli rounds dropping out bottom.

I’ve noticed while test cycling rounds through the tube magazine that sometimes if I don’t pull bolt To rear briskly enough to bring lifter to full top position that next next round in the tube will fall out the bottom of the lifter mechanism. Anyone else have this happen? Thoughts on the cause and ...

Re: Swiss M-78 Load Development and Results

I tried 20 grains of 2400 the other day. I tried three shots at 100 yards. Average V= 1352 FPS. I’m noticing a trend for a first shot flyer on a cold clean barrel, with subsequent shots being much closer together. Including first round flyer, the group for three shots was 3-3/4”. The last two shots ...

M78 Vetterli rear sight adjust

Ok. So the front sight doesn’t adjust for windage.
Why can’t the rear sight be drifted for windage in the huge dove tail slot it sits in?

Re: Proper mould for Swiss Vetterli with 38mm brass

That’s the one that I was contemplating on getting. Would be useful in my Smith & Wesson 6 to 9 as well. I’m just wanting to make sure that I can crimp the bullet at the proper 2.2 inches for cycling in the tube. I didn’t know if anyone would suggest one of the Vetterli bullets that seem to be avail...

Re: Dutch Beaumont stock restore project

That final stain I used was the dark brown Feibings. So if I use Tung or BLO I can’t use my gunnys paste?

I think for this Beaumont I’d want a more flat finish. Not sure though.
