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: Your Favorite .22

it actually has the weight and feel of a real rifle
You should take a MAS-45 or a Reising M65 trainer out for a test drive, and if that's not hefty enough, try a Stevens 416 trainer.

Re: Aguila Super Extra .22 LR ammunition review

Hi Rob, The hyperlink in your post points to the Aguila Super Extra standard velocity 40 gr solid lead bullet. This is one of the ammo selections that the CMP sold in bulk for target shooters up until the last 22 ammo drought. It is great. I've used it in competition in NRA sporterifle for several y...

You fire 8 rounds and you miss
No, I fire one round and then wait to see if there are more targets.

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

Got one years ago, and love it. If anyone out there has one of these obsolete old unrelaible outdated pieces of nostalgia scrap and needs to get rid of it and buy something light and fluffy, I'll take it off your hands and give it a good home. Don't be surprised if Browning starts limited production...

Re: Photographing a bore

What brand and model of camera are you using? There are probably some settings that would make success more likely. If you are shooting directly into the light, then it's a bit like pointing the camera into the sun and trying to capture an image. If it's a point-and-shoot, try setting it to "macro" ...

Re: Is it worth it?

Definitely worth it. You can use it for almost ANY firearm over 50 years old, not just military surplus. See item 1 below. That currently means anything before 1968. If you buy more than one a year, it pays for itself. The following is copied from the rule from the current BATFE circular on the 03 F...

Re: Jungle Carbine Stock Restoration

One other option would be to pick up a complete No. 5 if you can do so at a fair price, and sell parts from the one that you have to recoup much of the price. Who knows, you might even come out ahead. There's a nice one on Gunbroker now for $499 with no bidders (yet). If I didn't already have one, I...

Re: Jungle Carbine Stock Restoration

If it's a real Enfield #5 Jungle Carbine, and it was mine, here's what I would do: The foreend cap is the biggest challenge in recreating a forestock. I'd try to save the original stock, and splice in a replacement piece to replace what was cut off. You could hide the splice under the band. I would ...

Re: Enfield P14 rear sight

The volley sight was a holdover from the pre-WWI era. Put your armies in a nice straight line, and begin marching towards each other, and make rangefinding easy. The Brits used volley fire to create fear and demoralize the enemy lines on approach from long distances. There is an undeniable effect of...

Re: 1905 Ross

Is a Ross rifle worth it? That depends on you, not someone else's opinion. I''ll tell you what I do now that I have acquired at least one of everything (Axis, Allied, Occupied, and Neutral): I shoot my 1911 7.5X55mm Swiss long rife the most. I shoot an M1 Carbine nearly as much because it is so much...

Re: H&R M65 Reising Trainer

Some, but not all of The General 65 models had slightly shorter stocks and cuts in the comb. Early H&R advertisements listed The General as having a slightly lighter weight than the military model 65. It was a transitional model to the 165 Leatherneck released in 1946. H&R records from that era are ...
