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.

forming 11mm gras

Is it an easy process to form 11x59mm gras? I have been told 348 winchester is a good parent case but in Canada thats hard to come by, is it easy to form the brass from 50-110? Is there a way to form the brass without the appropriate dies? Can i use a 45 acp sizer to form the neck and then fire form...

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

Obviously a very comprehensive collecting area of world war firearms. Once the VIS clears RCMP transfer and i get it in my possession i will check to see if the numbers are all matching and do a thorough cleaning and strip of the internals to make sure the parts are all in good shape.

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

You're talking about the second "P" in P35P, right? That second P (again, according to Berger) was indeed initially stamped on the slide but went away shortly after the first 10,000 units were made. It supposedly stood for "Polen", or "Poland" in English. Also, most if not all of the VIS-35 pistols...

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

was the P35P actually stamped on the firearm or was it just the paper designation for the firearm in the supply chain? The shop i bought it from has another one for sale in alot harsher condition that has the takedown lever as well so a type 1 but it also is missing the P designation.

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

she looks like she has the relief cuts but is simply missing the P. I'm all but lost right now, too many variants for 1 pistol over the years. She's a 3 lever gun so my best observation is she is a Type 1 overall

Re: Polish Radom VIS35

I just bought a polish vis35 and have some questions about it. It's missing the P designation but has all of the eagle proofs and markings showing Nazi service. The serial number is in the C production block. What year would this roughly come out as date of manufacture? If it's a pre-war does that ...

Re: Reloading dies for 7.5 swiss

Ok so the overall consensus im getting is that the LEE dies are suitable for the SWISS gewehr 1911 long rifle. Does the k31 have a sloppier or tighter chamber than the previous rounds? I know the 1889 has a somewhat "sloppy" chamber by later model standards.

Re: Reloading dies for 7.5 swiss

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I have successfully loaded for my k31s, my g96/11, and my k11, using only the Lee dies. [/quote So your not having any chambering issues on the older rifles? They chamber just fine? My main worry is to buy the dies (about 50 bucks up here in Canada) and then h...

310-300 rook questions

Does anyone know what brass could be used to create .310-300 rook brass? As well what bullet would be optimal for the cartridge? I know its a bit different from the 300 rook cartridge, there is very little info about this cartridge unfortunately

Re: Unknown German pistol

Just a dumb question how do you think it may be German.. Any markings at all.. What I find amazing about this style of single shot target pistol is how many makes and flavors they made, and how unmarked many are... from what my coworker told me it has German Waffen something marked on it or somethi...

Unknown German pistol

My coworker has a pistol that we can't make heads or tails of. We think it's a German pistol that's break action that apparently takes a 17 calibre round (centerfire by the looks of it. Any ideas?

Re: Colt New Service

Just out of curiosity Lamontagne, what about the revolver makes you think British private purchase rather than Canadian private purchase? I've always heard that one of the reasons that many Canadian soldiers purchased S&W and Colt .455's was because the British had first shot at Webleys and that it...

Colt New Service

I have a Colt New Service chambered in .455 eley that was made in 1916. I believe mine is a commercial purchase that was bought by a British officer or soldier who was looking for an alternative to the Webley. She has some significant bluing wear and id put it at about 60% bluing but she still locks...
