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: 1884 cadet trapdoor

I ran 10 rounds through it this afternoon, 5 rounds of real black powder, and 5 rounds of pyrodex. It extracted all 10 cases with ease, however the group left a lot to be desired, it was more of a shotgun pattern than a group, and was shooting high, I knew it was going to shoot high due to the weigh...

Re: 1884 cadet trapdoor

I was able to get the chamber cleaned up using the method I described above. I did not get all of the rust out of it, and I did not polish the chamber to a mirror finish, but I smoothed what was in there down, and took care of the active rust. It's now extracting better, but only time and shooting i...

Re: 1884 cadet trapdoor

A couple of updates. The bronze firing pin is slight bent and the tip is a little misshapen, and doesn't want to come out. I have an original steel one on the way to replace it because I am going to have to pretty much destroy the one it to get it out. the screw that holds the firing pin in is not t...

1884 cadet trapdoor

Traded for this today, it was made in 1893, and has a barrel length of 29.5. the front sight is broken, I have a replacement on the way. However it is also missing the spring and behind the latch that pushes it forward, I have one on the way from gunpartsco. The bore is in great shape, but the chamb...

Re: 1953 Yugo 8mm.

I have some of that, I don't remember if it's the same year or not, but it either works or it takes 2-3 hits with the firing pin, the rifle I was shooting at the time was a 1943 turk mauser. I think some of the primers are a little deeper than others, I have not tried it in my other mausers yet.

Re: CMP 1911 email

If they are smart about it, prices will be right along the same lines as the Garands. However I'm thinking that any of them that they sell under $1,000, are going to to be beat to hell, broken, and or stripped frames. I don't think they are going to cause the prices to drop right off the bat, but pr...

Re: P14 project done

Nice restoration. I have a 1916 Remington p14 drill rifle barreled action I am going to restore at some point, it's missing the rear sight, but is otherwise 100% numbers matching. I just have to track down a stock and the hardware, and I am thinking about getting one of the p14 criterion barrels for...

Re: finally picked up another no4 mk1

That's a no go on the scopes, I have done a little searching around and other than your comment, I have not seen anything definitive either way. However, since it's the no32 has 1" tube, I am thinking about picking up one of the repo mounts and putting an old weaver k4 or something similar on it, do...

Re: SHOOTING ACCURACIES

I can answer why muzzle brakes deflect to the sides. With a rifle, when prone it will kick up a lot of dust, and the blast would bounce off the ground and probably destroy something, and it would not be a pleasant experience for the shooter either because in order to be effective, muzzle brakes vent...

Re: finally picked up another no4 mk1

I'll probably use raw then, all boiled I can find in my area is the newer stuff. I also ordered a stock to replace the one that's on it, with any luck it will at least be a normal length one. On another note, any one have an experience with the repo no32 scopes and mounts that numrich sells?

finally picked up another no4 mk1

It's been a few years since I have owned an enfield, and I have been keeping my eye out for one that was a little beat up, and could use some tlc, but had a good bore. This is the first one that poped up that fit the bill. I did some horse trading with a buddy and ended up with this, 218 rounds of 3...
