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: Lets see those Czech pistols

Article about this gun on page 84. Looks like SWAT Magazines is no longer charging for the PDF's.

Re: Lets see those Czech pistols

Can a $300 pistol be worth putting several times that in custom work? I guess that's up to the individual but this individual thought so and so did I..... I really like the CZ 83, especially in 9mm MAK. It's very large for its caliber but that's what some people need. or maybe it's all they have or ...

Re: Sterling Sporters

I have a PPS-43 mag coming. Looks like easier to modify and it's a two-position feeder which ought to be better but-- the modified PPSh-41 mag has worked without issue.

The Romanian surplus ammo is pretty dirty and seems more corrosive than most corrosive.

Re: Sterling Sporters

So this particular gun is known for not working very well-- mostly due to the fact that the supplied magazines (in the 7.62 version) were STEn mags with the back rib milled out and a plate welded on-- making room for the longer cartridge. My first thought was just rebarrel it to 9mm and use real Ste...

Re: How desirable is 9mm largo?

I bought, I think, 500 rounds of this in the late 80's, thinking I might use it as cheap practice fodder in my .38 Super IPSC gun, which I did. I had to run them through the seater to push the bullets in maybe 1/32 deeper. I also made a little stab crimp tool to recrimp them after this. Note, pushin...

Re: Sterling Sporters

Yep, the top one, and oh how I wanted the bottom one many years ago. As it happens I am about 20' from one at the moment (Costa Mesa though and not mine).

The Sterling I'm fiddling with is in 7.62 Tokarev.

Sterling Sporters

Anybody have one of these? Semi-autos made from Sterling L3 submachinegun kits, by Wise-Lite Arms? I've been working with one a little and it is kinda interesting and different as PCC's (Pistol Caliber Carbines) go. Far from great, not bloody awful, just different and I think, not terribly common.

Re: The Enfield Rat Rifle

I might revisit it sometime this fall with an eye toward doing that. Looking at how the Enfield stock is it surprises me they don't have a reputation for being on the weak side.... but I'll try and see what can be done. The barrel itself, I would think, should be a good one, it came from Sabre Defen...

Re: The Enfield Rat Rifle

One of those things that I started in a fit of enthusiasm and like 20 hours into it I realized it would take another 20, I didn't have either of those 20-hour stretches to spare but after the first 20 I knew the first 20 would have been a waste if I didn't waste another 20 on it.... :-) More to go s...

Re: The Enfield Rat Rifle

With 30-round mag. They need to be modified and it is oh so much easier on plastic. Show with and without the brake. Barrel has a pinned and welded flash hider threaded to take an AK74 brake bore to .30. Not that you need it. http://i.imgur.com/zXr9Mds.jpg http://i.imgur.com/PzTSpBZ.jpg http://i.img...

Re: The Enfield Rat Rifle

It shoots "well enough" I suppose..... you can break 2" at 100 but pretty much only with Lapua ammo.... so far. I probably have only 125 rounds through it but enough to kinda confirm the expected: old Chinese ammo goes 4-5", Fiocchi and Federal are much better, but Lapua was the best. So, pretty goo...

The Enfield Rat Rifle

The Rat Rifle. I call it the Enfakar: A 1917 Enfield. The AK47 caliber, 7.62X39, in an AR15 barrel. This one was on the old site but reposting in case of interest. This project ws not a good allocation of time ("not worth it") but once started, I had to finish it. http://www.m-guns.com/largefoto/pic...
