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: Webley safe .45 Auto Loads?

Ditto. I'm not using handloads in my Enfield Mk IV, but I've shot over 2000 standard 200 gr SWC and 230 gr FMJ loads moving at 850-ish fps without a hitch. Trying a +P load in this particular revolver is probably not a great idea, but the above loads are pretty mild, and should be easy to duplicate ...

Re: Mossberg M44

There are a number of these rifles on Gunbarker.com now, some with absurd prices. The ones that are attracting bids are selling for $350 to $400-ish.

Re: Thinking of a 10/22.

Is there any reason I shouldn't? If you shoot from the left shoulder (I do), it will toss hot brass down your collar, or bounce them off your forehead just about every time. If I didn't have a .22, I'd pick up a MAS-45 before I bought the Ruger, but that's me. I dumped my 10-22 and bought a Brownin...

Re: Ljungman value?

$650 is cheap, and the barrels are almost always in good condition. You can also get NOS barrels from Springfield Sporters. I paid $50 for a like-new barrel from them about 3 years ago.

Re: 7.62x54r chamber insert to shoot 7.62x25?

I have one, and fired approximately 50 rounds through it. As others have commented, it was a good idea when 7.62X25 was dirt cheap, but you can now shoot 7.62X54R for the same price. If you must have a lower power round for a Mosin-like rifle, it might be more cost effective to buy a WZ48 .22 trainer.

Re: M1917 or SMLE?

I would forgo food and shelter for a period of time and buy one of each. I would NOT recommend trying to rehab a sporter, as that would not be cost effective and you are already making decisions based on available funds. So, give up lotto, lattes, nachos, women, poker, whatever... and buy a nice 191...

Re: Swedish Ljungman

I bought mine back when they were "overpriced" at $600. HAH! Love the way it shoots and the fishscale grain of the beech stock. I picked up a spare barrel (NOS) and all the moving parts from Springfield Sporters in anticipation of wearing this wearing out before I do.

I think if this happened to me I'd rush out and buy a lotto ticket that same day.

Re: SMLE .22 trainer

What do these go for? My LGS has a MINT Lithgow MkIII SMLE 22LR that looks new, but is $750 asking - yikes! Be aware that the "mint" Lithgow is possibly a JJCo rifle put together from surplus parts. They are very nice looking, but they are not military trainers. My Enfield trainer is dead nuts accu...

Re: dmg4 where are you??

Back now, and happy to see that the forum is once again up and running. If the old content is not restored, I'll get to re-tell all my awful jokes.

That's already happening according to my younger and short-term memory-enabled colleagues.
