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: I finally have a CZ-75

What is the difference in pre B and post B. I have forgotten. Hi Charles! The B models, up through current production, have a firing pin block. They are identifiable by the roll pin visible in the slide serrations. There were additional changes, including the ring hammer (instead of the original sp...

The late great Stephen A. Camp

A gun-writer I truly miss is Stephen A. Camp. From his days posting on various gun forums, to the creation of his excellent Hipowersandhandguns website, he always had a down-to-earth style that belied his truly impressive knowledge and experience. His way of writing was influential without being "in...

Re: I finally have a CZ-75

I put a fresh 16 pound Wolff recoil spring in it, as I'm looking forward to shooting-up this large can of Federal 9BPLE I've been holding on to for quite a while. I'm usually not one to use hot ammo, but I got this stuff for free and the CZ handles it well. I was also happy to discover it can accomm...

Cleaned up very nicely.

what type of products did you use?
Superfine steel wool, 3 in 1 oil for the rust and some linseed oil for the stock. Here's some more pics. I think they will be thrilled when I give it back--even I didn't think it would clean up as well as it did. The bore is bright.

Nice clean up, how did it get so bad in the 1st place???
An "old man" recently donated it during one of their living history days, so at least it wasn't the historical society that let it get that way!

Cleaned up an 1884 Trapdoor Springfield

The president of my local historical society asked if I would be willing to clean up an "old rifle" they want to put on display. I agreed, wondering what she would bring me. I was thrilled to find it's an 1884 trapdoor. Here's a before and after pic. Now the only problem is that I really want one. I...

I finally have a CZ-75

I've wanted a CZ-75 for as long as I can remember. I've especially wanted a pre-b with some service use history. My wait is over--and here it is. This is an Israeli Police issue made in 1990. It's just the way I like 'em, used but not abused. I got it to the range this week and it shot great.

Re: My Del-Ton AR-15

I've had very good luck with Del Ton. Decent prices and good customer service. How do you like that Primary Arms Micro Dot? I'm really happy with it. I've kept it on since it was installed, about 16 months now, and it's still going. Haven't had to think about it at all--has kept its zero and works ...

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

Sad news but I guess the writing had been on the wall for some time. The expense of producing them priced them out of the market for folks looking for a new-production handgun, and the old-school single-action fan-base isn't getting any bigger in the age of affordable striker-fired polymer self-defe...

Re: Pawnshop Predicament

Let us know if you were able to grab the Finn. As mentioned, if priced comparable to an M95 I would think it will go fast. And don't feel bad if you have to pass on the M95 this time--those were imported in vast numbers and should remain relatively easy to find at reasonable prices for a long time. ...

Re: Military Surplus k98ks commonly found at gun shows

PennsylvaniaRifleman does the bolt match or is it a miss match but the bolt matches itself?? Looks like a matching rifle except the bolt???? Do the bands match? One fine K98k. Thanks for the detailed photos. Yes--everything but the bolt matches, and the bolt does match itself. You're welcome for th...
