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.

I sometimes walk my property with the bayonet fixed in late August to September because of the spiders. The critters aren't that big, it's the blasted webs! I reach out and use the blade to cut the webs down. As it starts to cool off, the spiders go crazy weaving huge webs across every path and open...

Oh well, We were barely married three weeks when my wife shot me in the head! A lead 38 special from her revolver hit something downrange and bounced straight back. Didn't leave a mark (it was my head remember).
I use a 1-piece stainless steel cleaning rod with brass ferrule, to keep the rod from dragging on the inside of the barrel at the muzzle. Stainless steel won't imbed grit which will damage the bore. I also just run it a few passes, and let the solvent do the work. I coat the bore, let it sit, then a...

Wrap the case head with a narrow strip of masking tape before you fire it for the first time. It'll keep the case centered in the (loose) chamber so it expands evenly all around instead of bulging on one side. I also use a mild load such as UNIQUE and Hornady 100gr XTP bullets loaded to around 1600 ...

Something to think about. If the barrel is not turned all the way in, (i.e. it's out one full turn) you have that much more of the case head unsupported. That could result in a case rupture which is a very bad thing with full-powered ammo. If the barrel is otherwise good, perhaps it needs to be turn...
If you are a reloader the M95 carbines can be tamed into a decent little woods carbine and fun shooter. When reassembling the bolt (be warned, it's difficult) TOTALLY IGNORE THE DRY IS GOOD IDIOTS. The inside of the bolt needs to be well lubricated with a good quality grease to work smoothly. Most h...
You answered a question I had; this works well with rifles. I use a fair amount of cast in an assortment of long obsolete slobbovian clunks I carry in the woods to good effect. Powder coating looks worth trying.
I have clips so never tried single loading into the chamber then closing the bolt. There's some risk of the extractor breaking, from making it flex over the rim. Until you get clips I suggest you just lay a round right on the follower, then see if you can close the bolt, allowing the rim to work up ...
