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: Rust in Mosin 91/30 chamber

How badly is it rusted?
light/moderate rust? just soak it with oil and some brushing with something in the .45cal range should take care of most of the problems.
severe, pitting and flaking metal - just how bad is it (and the rest of the gun for that matter)?

Nope, I can't! But I like to read about other's efforts and projects.

Re: k31 Overpay or a Steal?

Love the K31s!
Mine didn't have a troop tag, but it is a looker and a shooter!
Yours looks nice! Gotta stabilize/repair that crack, then get shooting.

I know it was a different time, but I'm always surprised when I read or see these old rifles with sights starting at 300+ yards/meters

Re: BRASS CLEANING

I've used rice before. It does work pretty well, but a grain would always find a way to get wedged into the primer pocket requiring some extra time getting it cleaned out for the next step in loading. I pulse the rice in a food processor or blender to break it down a little and worked better. I've t...

Re: Finished collection, now what?

start a Mosin-Nagant collection...Lots of different directions to go. This would've been much easier and cheaper to do about 10 yrs ago, but still about the cheapest gun to collect. Maybe start a companion handgun collection, P38s, P08s, Mauser pistols. Again, lots of different ways to go here too.

Re: Memphis Belle On Display At USAF Museum

I am northwest of the Museum by 45 min and I can report that I spotted at least two P 51s making a flight in a SE direction toward the base this evening. I wonder if they are keeping them up at Grimes Field in Urbana like they did the B25s when they had the Doolittle Raid Anniversary a couple of ye...
