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: Cleaned up an 1884 Trapdoor Springfield

That is a very nice clean up. Well done sir! When you get your Trapdoor, you will wonder what took you so long to get your own!

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

It's a shame they quit making the Hi Power. I took mine to the range today and did very well for a change. Then again the on site gunsmith did point me in the right direction for bullet weight. I'm now using 115 grain instead of 148. Big difference in accuracy! Last 5 shots created 2 large holes in ...

Re: 1917 Eddystone barrel

My Eddystone has a Johnson Automatic barrel on it as well. Typical of US arms that have been through a refurb. It's a real mixmaster of Eddystone, Remington and Winchester parts. Having said all of that, it is very accurate at 100 yards for me and in the hands of a true marksman, will do even better.

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

Now that I have learned my Hi Power likes 115 grain bullets instead of the 147 grain bullets that I tried to feed it. It is my best shooting 9mm by far and while I wouldn't carry it, I have no problem keeping it as a home defense pistol. In any event, Citizen Swihart, how can a John Moses browning d...

Black Friday Shoot

As usual, Citizen Swihart held his Black Friday Shoot. Very popular with those of us that avoid the malls like plague on that day. This years' event was held at the Middletown range which is a very inviting place to shoot. Abundant sunshine and temps in the low 50's made for an ideal day with friend...

Re: New gunshow set up!

Nice seeing my favorite pusher in Dayton again. Unfortunately the fairgrounds Coliseum is not large enough for classic Bill Goodman's show. Todd had a lot of good stuff on his table and as usual the best ammo prices in the hall. This time, there wasn't anything on the table I couldn't live without. ...

Re: French M16 - Splice and wrist repair.

The wrist looks like advice from Candyman would be a good thing to have. He is the resident stock repair guru. That split doesn't look good!

Re: Webley Gem

VERY, VERY NICE. I would suspect the mark on the grip is damage as I've not seen any Webley grips with that mark before. Noe the important question, how does it shoot?

Re: REMINGTON M1863 PERCUSSION ‘ZOUAVE’ RIFLE REPRO

Enough of the negative waves, Moriarity! I've used quite a bit of black powder. It's not too difficult to clean. While the barrel is still hot to warm, pour a bottle of water down the tube. When you get to your cleaning location equal parts of water, alcohol and Murphy's oil soap poured into the bar...
