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.

It has the "crappy" add-on safety. It has a nice feel and shoots very well.

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

How do you save money by wasting resources in a war? I just don't get it. It would make sense if they simply stopped making them with hammer spurs, but thats not what happened. I have heard the theory that it was done as a safety measure though, Initially for tank crews who could somehow cock the h...

I am just stating the replies I received from the British members on Gunboards. If someone has technical papers from Enfield that would help solve the myth issue.

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

From what I have learned from some Brits, the spurless hammer version has nothing to do with tankers. It was strictly for cost savings in production and training.

Re: Luger advice...

Love to see picture when you can! Is it 9mm or 7.62mm? I reload "light loads" 9mm 115gr FMJ for my luger.

Per Rapidbob I use a magazine tool to load!

Great Heirloom for your family.

Did you remove/clean the firing pin & empty chamber indicator? It was pretty tricky for me to get the cover snapped back into place!! LOL

Re: Who here uses a wet tumbler?

I have had one since last Christmas. I got a universal de-capper to first remove the primers so the pins will clean the primer pockets. I still use my corncob dry to remove the "pam" lube after I size my cases. Maybe a little more work but IMHO it does a better job cleaning the brass.!
