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: Ethiopian 8x57

Sounds like it's worth buying a few small boxes - I've seen 15rnd boxes on sale for about $5 a box - just to have and try. Still have a lot of late 70's yugo and some M75 I picked up for less than $2 a box a few years ago

Ethiopian 8x57

Started seeing this pop up in a few places. Anyone get some of this to try?

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

Definitely priced too high, but certainly interesting.

Re: Anyone tried Aguila ammo?

I've used some of their pistol ammo, and it has been reliable. I'm not accurate enough with pistols to determine anything more than that.

Re: So is anyone going to the Wanenmacher's Tulsa Gun Show

I went there several years ago. It was amazing. I haven't lived anywhere close enough to go for the last 9 years, unfortunately. I wish, I heard it is THE GUN SHOW. I only have an 03FFL. Is it not just for FFL’s? I could because of work but I would love to see it at least. If you go, keep us posted ...

Re: name as many as you can: go!

The sporting rifle is a .22, Winchester Auto IIRC. Trying to go by memory, so I may be wrong.

Edit, so I looked it up, I'm right, but I won't say the model, since that would be cheating! I remember a company doing some clones recently, though.

Re: FN49 Egyptian sniper rifle

I have one with the dovetail cut, but I don't have a mount. The rifle is one of my most accurate with iron sights. I can only imagine how good it could be with a scope. And that is with the original, drug through the desert stock!

Re: CZ-50 Chronograph reload results

Fiocchi has some HP loads that are rated at 1100fps at the muzzle. Since I can't get my pistol to reliably feed HP's, for carry purposes I usually have one of those in the chamber for the first round. Properly loaded, this thing has some punch, and the CZ is more than capable of a pistol for that!

Re: where did you spend 4th of July 1976?

I love posts like this! For one, it makes me feel young. I am the old guy where I work, but I wasn't even born in 1976! I really enjoy reading other people's life stories.

Re: Online giveaway rifles

I entered one that was sponsored by one of the auction sites. Started getting all sorts of spam from various "gun" lists that I never (intentionally at least) signed up for. Not doing it again. Oh, and I didn't win anything either.

Re: Century has 7.62x45

Any idea what the price is? Just guessing, but I wouldn't expect anything less than $1 per round. Which given the labor it takes to form cases, isn't bad. Unfortunately, Century doesn't list any dealers near me. I may give my old boss a call and see if he can get any in, then have my parents pick i...

Re: CZ ( VZ ) 50 quality question

I researched replacing the springs in the CZ50 pistol. There is a guy selling a "kit" for a mere 45 bucks that is supposed to really help the trigger pull. I contacted Wolf Springs and found a pair of spring kits that have 50 springs each in them that has several lengths and strengths to fix the pi...
