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: Luger advice...

Refinishing would kill it for me, especially if it's the all too typical "burned to death with a buffing wheel" job.

Oustanding! I always cringe when I see sporterized Mausers, for some reason it's worse for me when they're German.

Re: Are these good bullets

RDF bullets have been very picky/touchy from what I've seen in various calibers. Also kind of inconsistent from lot to lot. Not sure if you'd see it in a surplus Swede. I've been shooting all Hornady BTHP in my surplus loads. Good performance and great price.

Re: M1 primer

CCI 200, 250, or 34 all work well in floating firing pin rifles. The only time I have ever had a double was with Winchester.

Re: How to read a primer hit & your brass

Certainly not worth it. Even if you don't get hurt, the gas coming out of those cracks will score your chamber or bolt and over time can cause more serious function issues.

Re: 1936 S/42 Luger

Thank you! I've wanted one since I was a teenager and finally last year decided it was time to make it happen. The fit and finish quality are outstanding! Reminds me of a K31 where you ask yourself "Why is this a standard service weapon?". Absolutely zero perceptible slide wiggle, and it shoots pret...

Re: Gewehr 43 Questions

Cracked receivers are a thing that happens occasionally. Splits in the stock/handguard too. There's also the typical collectable things-- being able to spot refinished stocks, reproduction stocks, refinished/polished metal, and how to price it accordingly (good luck, this one requires quite a bit of...

1936 S/42 Luger

This is my first Luger. I've had it about a year now, all matching except the magazines, which are (as near as I can tell) both 1937 manufacture (straight eagle 63 blued, aluminum base). I occasionally browse the web in hopes of finding the original to this pistol-- we all have pipe dreams :) At som...

Re: Accuracy

Kind of on that note Smokey, I took my M1 carbine to the range a few weeks back and decided that since it's a "glorified pistol cartridge" I'd test it out on the plate racks on the pistol portion of the range. Usually I just shoot groups and plink at 500 and 100yd. I was incredibly surprised at how ...

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

GO gauges are mostly for chambering a barrel, not so much a safety check. If the ammo fits without forcing anything it's probably safe from a head-space standpoint. That said, ammo tends to run on the short side of the head-space tolerance (to ensure it will fit/function even in the shortest-head-sp...

Re: First Carbine!

No worse than a .357 magnum, and not far behind a 300 blackout. Within 75yd I'm pretty comfortable with it. The tag I'd use it for is Black Hills Whitetail (south dakota), which is mostly short-range shots anyway.
