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: Midway Movie Review

My son and I went and saw it. Both of us are aviation nuts (I've got some Stearman time) and have a vast die cast collection. We were pleased on it's accuracy, even if they didn't show the Wildcat's mixing it up. It won't win any academy awards, but it was good to see the correct equipment, more or ...

Re: Chinese [0306] Arsenal SKS

as I stated before there is only 2 ways to mount a scope ; that is either attaching it directly on the side of the receiver or on the rear sight, those are the only 2 places on the gun where a scope mount would be rock solid and you won't lose zero There's another way that's proven. You can use a r...

Re: Chinese [0306] Arsenal SKS

With everything matching from that arsenal, I wouldn't try any scope mounting that would mar the finish on your wife's rig. I'd get another, uglier SKS, and turn the Khyber Pass boys loose on it. Fugly, mishmatched SKSs can still shoot good. I've always liked apertures and I've got SKS iron sighted ...

18.5 inch SKS

Hi Fellas, Anyone out there have or shot SKS rifles that were commercially modified to 18.5 inches? Just curious as to their accuracy, if they're marginally "better", like the 16.5 inch Paratroopers usually are. I'm asking cause I recently scored on a Bubba job cut to that length, without a front si...

Re: Mossberg M44

I listened to you guys and got a 44US, not a 44US a,b,c or d (commercial versions). CMP is out and GunBroker doesn't have one under $300 in decent shape, so I checked out Rimfire central and got one there for a respectable price in decent condition. The work Mossberg did on the rifling back in the ...
