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: metal turned brown cleanup

i use ballistol to clean and oil my firearms which i believe was designed for the german gewehr 98 and other service arms way back in the day. I'll keep using more elbow grease to see what i can continue to clean off. Currently there is nearly 0 pitting at the moment that i can see.

Re: metal turned brown cleanup

Weren't the GWE98 receivers often left in the white originally? yeah receivers, bolts, buttplate and a few other pieces were left in the white. Mine unfortunately has i believe tarnish, staining and "patina" from years of neglect i believe, the bolt and receiver match and the bolt is in the white s...

Re: metal turned brown cleanup

Yes I know but purists get their knickers in a twist if I call it "old rust" I just can't win! its on an old GEW98 receiver, its not blued but the receiver has the brown "rust" on it, should i use more elbow grease to remove the tarnish or would it be best to leave it as is? It's an Amberg 1905 mau...

metal turned brown cleanup

If the bluing has turned brown on my rifle and i want to clean it up, is there a different way than oil and steel wool? Doesnt seem to be touching it and was wondering if there is a better method

Re: 9mm steyr brass

Unfortunately up here in canada does and brass can be a bit harder to come by. I will have to shop around for the dies and see what I can do but the brass at the moment is sitting around 40 for 100 without shipping or taxes. So figure about 60+ for the brass

Re: 9mm steyr brass

Starline makes 9mm Steyr brass. Graf's has it for $21 per hundred. I can pretty much guarantee you that it will be cheaper than converting free .223 range pickups unless you place zero value on your labor. This is especially true if you have to buy a reamer. Also, .223 brass has a rim diameter that...

9mm steyr brass

would it be smart or possible to convert .223 remington brass casings to 9mm steyr by cutting them down to 23mm's and possibly reaming out the brass to open up the inside diameter?

Is this a bad idea? Should i just purchase the 9mm steyr brass if i can find it?

Re: 7mm mauser for rolling block

how roomy are the throats on these guys? Mine headspaces perfectly fine but i can set the bullets out very far in the case and it still seats and the block shuts with no binding on the hammer. Were these built with open chamber throats like that or is that just normal throat wear over the last hund...

Re: 91/38 accuracy issue

How is the muzzle crown? The barrel crown seems to be perfectly fine, the rifle itself i believe is unrefurbished and was barely ever used in its service life since the barrel is nearly mirror bright, not bad for a 1941 91/38. I could always see if i can find some prvi 156gr bullets so the weight w...

Very fair price. A rare pistol in it's condition.
And that is in Canadian dollars. So that would be about 450.00 or so American dollars.

Is the Chilean contract particularly rare?

Bore is a mystery since I haven't slugged it but a .264 bullet hardly enters the muzzle. It isn't counterbored and I'm using hornady. 264 140gr sst's

Chilean Steyr 1911 pistol

There is a Steyr 1911 (1912) pistol for sale that was made for the Chilean contract in the early 20th century. The seller is asking 650.00 Canadian for it. Is that a fair price to ask or is that way out of the market realm?
