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: WW I VFW Trophy Rifles

Anyone actually have one of these so they can show some photos of how the rods look in the barrel from a muzzle view and chamber view? Are they the full length of the barrel? Is the bolt face welded or is the firing pin hole intact, just that the pin is cut short? Could you please post some photos o...

Re: LAPLAPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE

SPRING LOADED JIG There are no specific measurements for this jig. Each caliber will be different. You’ll notice the body is longer than the shoulder/neck. This is so the body still rides inside the chamber when not compressed; otherwise, the edge of the body will catch on the breech and cause a jam...

LAPLAPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE

This is a repost of Metzler's sticky "LAPPING THE LUGS OF A MAUSER BOLT ACTION RIFLE" . He must have paid photo bucket to allow his pictures to remain on the Wayback. This was one of the greats so I am reposting the first part lacking comments. This is his meat of the post. Pictures will be fixed by...

Re: Electrolysis tank repost

So just plug it in and let the electricity do the work for you. After 5 minutes here's what my tank looked like. You know it's working when you see the bubbles coming off the wires. When the bubbles hit the surface, they are full of hydrogen gas. Not enough to start an explosion, since this is being...

Electrolysis tank repost

This is Gunfreak's 21 Sept 2008 Electrolysis Tank repost . This is a direct copy & paste except I added the photos by the forum method so they stay in place. This was one of the old great stickies. Here is the original Wayback link, but most of the pictures are gone. However 12 pages of comments re...

Re: Bluing video

Startup costs are actually pretty cheap considering the equipment can be used for multiple firearms. I built my first rig for under $50. I agree, lots of the set up can be used stuff. Do you recommend a second tube for soaking filled with Kerosene. It sounds like that is better for long term wear &...

Re: Czech/Turkish Mauser Vz.98 at the Range

That range reminds me of the Ceil WI conservation range. The ticks & misquotes will drive you nuts. I use to shoot out there when I was on the Menominee Reservation at CMN. I just saw a Brno 98/22 at Cabela's and the dopes had $450 on a $79 surplus rifle. All those 98//22 are great shooters even wit...

Re: " Cleaned Up" Berthiers

On some 1907/15-M16 5 shots, the door spring is broken or the tiny follower arm platform spring at the bottom is missing. Both are hard to find. Here is the little follower arm platform spring that can be missing on the 5 shot Berthiers. This is really hard to find. Generally you are better off buy...
