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: Vz52's

Re: What venom does to blood

Having lived in Florida 3 times now (Homestead AFB, Tyndall AFB and having also worked out of Eglin AFB and Hurlburt Field) I've seen Rattle Snakes (Diamondbacks, Timbers, Pygmies), Water Moccasins, Copperheads, and Coral Snakes. Which are the 6 venomous snakes native to Florida. Plus tons of non-ve...

Re: Stock Cleaning Question/Help!

There is a big misunderstanding when it comes to military stocks with oil finishes. I know that there are those that will flame that the original finish has been removed when a stock is cleaned. But there are some that know very little about oil finishes or what was done to keep wood stocks clean i...

Stock Cleaning Question/Help!

I have a Type 53 with a white haze on the stock. Which is believed to have been caused by the chemicals used by the importer to somewhat de-grease the rifles for whatever purpose. Is there a way to fix this, tone it down, blend it without refinishing the stock? Or do I need to learn to live with it,...

Re: Vacuum Sealing Firearms

:shock: 4 Grand! I'll use ziploc baggies & oil/grease with a couple of silica gels & an oxygen absorber! But when Uncle Sam pays for it, it gets used a lot....Now that we are all retired they don't get used for extracurricular things anymore. The new Cadre just uses it for sealing survival equipmen...

Re: Model 95 Bolt

You pull on the bolt, slip a dime into the gap and start sliding the bolt in then remove the dime. I would show pics but I've secured my guns for Irma. Hopefully someone will be along soon to give you better directions. I have a dime that sits on the rifle rack behind my M95 just for that purpose. I...

Re: Vacuum Sealing Firearms

One of the big No-nos with vacuum sealing is pointy bits on the inside. Even bones can puncture under vacuum. I'd think this would be a Yuuuuge problem with all the pointy bits sticking out on a firearm. Can you just seal without vacuum & drop a couple of silica gels in there? Most industrial vacuu...

Re: Vacuum Sealing Firearms

I tried that in the 70's while deployed for several years. The problem was not rust or corrosion,but rather the bags were sucked down onto the surface of the wood. The wrinkles in the bags were thicker than the non-wrinkled parts and left permanent marks in the wood. The plastic bags reacted with t...

Re: Vacuum Sealing Firearms

When I was in the USAF we would vacuum seal the aircrew 38 revolvers in those sliver vacuum bags. We just wiped them down with an oily rag after exercises and reseal them. Never had an issue with rust on them, we had a supply label with the SN, nomenclature, etc on it. Just reused the bags until the...

Re: MAS 36 reloading

I tried reloading for my 7.5 MAS 36 without buying another die set. Since I only have one rifle in this cartridge, I used my Lee 308 neck sizing die with a flat washer slipped over the brass after putting it in the shell holder. Just use a washer that is close to the length difference of the two sh...
