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: Cast Bullets for Carcano

First questions , what rifle are you using , what is the bore size - land and groove ? Carcanos have deep rifling that tends to tear up cast bullet , many have gain twist which also tears up bullets , some have .268 + deep groove that do not work well with an undersize cast bullet . Also be very ca...

Man Photobucket has a lot of pop up ads these days and they tend to get lost over time.

Re: VISUAL REFERENCE GUIDE - Rifle No5 Mk1 Fazakerley

Alan, We may not get an answer to that one as I am not sure that TikiRocker (the original poster on the OLD forum) has made it back to the NEW forum. Zeliard is just mining the wayback machine to add back some of the last content. Maybe you can add in a reply what the marks talked about above tell y...

Anyone have a FÉG Model 40RZ Pistol?

Anyone have a FÉG Model 40RZ Pistol? Do you shoot it? If yes how is the "user experience". Other thoughts on it? Well made?
I do not see much posted about them.

Thanks,

Re: 7th Annual Arms Race

I think I will bow out of these. Too hard to compete against guys buying two and three of each type. Too close to a business for me.

Peace out.

Re: Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

RWS/Vonalt,

I got a chance to go to the range with the BM and put maybe 250 rounds down range using both mags with no feed or cycle issues. I used mostly 115g from Herters and Monarch both Brass and Steel cased. Second set was 124g with some 147g and again all functioned fine.

Great Pistol.

Kevin

Kevin: You and I both experienced functioning problems with factory brass-cased 115 grain ammo in our old WW2 Star Model B's. How reliable has your BM been thus far? Vonalt : Would like to hear your opinions on BM reliability as well. -Bob Good news bad news. Bad news is I have not had time to shoo...

Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

Picked this one up from my dealer today. A 1978 Star BM from 09-2017 C.A.I batch of LEO imports sold by J&G Sales. I also picked up one extra magazine (the limit). My pistol came in a Green Box with unused tool and instruction book in Spanish that calls out Guardia Civil and the box matches what I b...
