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: Savage 32acp

I have one of those. Very cool little pistol. It is interesting in that it is a striker fired design, with an exposed "hammer" that is actually a cocking lever. Also neat in that it is one of the earliest pistols with a staggered box magazine. Though it is often mistaken as a model 1905 due tot he p...

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

Yes, about that... Do I just mix some dish soap with some warm water and then pore it down the bore like a rense? Or should I run soapy-warm swabs through the barrel with a cleaning rod? What works best? Personally I get a little bucket, or other plastic container, fill it with 2-3 inches of hot wa...

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

You are welcome. Just make sure you clean the bore of your rifle with a little warm soapy water soon after shooting to remove the salts from the corrosive primers to prevent it rusting. Follow up cleaning with a light coat of oil.

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

That is Turkish surplus 8mm Mauser. It is corrosive and somewhat on the warm side as 8mm Mauser goes, so keep that in mind, other than that it should work in any 8mm Mauser rifle in good condition designed for modern smokeless powder loads. Actually it is pretty good stuff as far as surplus 8mm goes...

Re: My Chilean 1895

I have the twin of that rifle, have has for a number of years too, and it is one of the most accurate rifles of any type that I own.

7X57 makes it very pleasant to shoot as well.

Great pics, Thanks for sharing.

Re: This "Schmeisser designed the AK" nonsense...

Archives, as in Soviet archives. Which I am sure in no way were doctored to support the Kalashnikov fairy-tale. Lots of stuff out there on this: Mikhail Kalashnikov denied any foreign influence on his designs, Schmeisser told Western spies that he gave them ideas. Soviet prisoner from 1945 to 1952, ...

Re: Century buys SSporters

I have to agree. A lot of the old standbys from my active collecting days are gone, SAMCO, SOG, and others, and now Springfield Sporters. Time marches on. Unfortunately it seems that friendly customer service related business practices have given way to those of mercenary profiteering with an eye to...

Re: This "Schmeisser designed the AK" nonsense...

Schmeisser worked in Izhevsk until 1952 when he and other German specialists returned home to Germany. With short notice, his stay in the Soviet Union was extended beyond that of the other weapon specialists by a half year . He finally returned home on 9 June 1952. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hug...

Re: BAR opinions

Ian does a good job with his videos and they are a real boon to firearms enthusiasts. He does best when he sticks to educating us on the facts, as he possesses a great wealth of firearms knowledge. When he starts to stray down the path of his opinion, he tends to get a little lost between what is an...

What evidence do you have that Kalashnikov and his Russian team designed the AK and even have any "credit" to give to others?

The say so of the Soviets? :lol:

Oh, and Schmeisser was actually held longer than his fellow Germans by the Russians.

So those prototypes, what independent evidence is there that they are not simply the work of Schmeisser's team with Kalashnikov's name on them? They came out of the same facility where Schmeisser's team was located, at the same time, and we know full well that the Russians would never admit a foreig...

Re: Heat Treated Cast Bullets

I also have gotten good results with handgun bullets simply letting them drop in a bucket of cold water right from the mold.

That LA Silhouette Club site is a good one though, lots of good info on cast bullets and other ballistic topics.

Politics? They are the only reason Kalashnikov was credited with the design of the AK. Looking at it from a logical, non political viewpoint, based on the evidence available, the only intelligent, non emotionally attached conclusion that can be drawn, is that the AK was an innovative design, of Hugo...
