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: 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...

Re: REMINGTON M1863 PERCUSSION ‘ZOUAVE’ RIFLE REPRO

OK Todd, You can get black powder from Graf & sons. They do have a HAZMAT fee so find a friend or two to go in on the purchase. Whatever floats your boat for round ball or minnie, Using round ball, mt dad just used bore butter as a lube with a cloth patch. For minnie, I use Alox as a lube. Then you ...

Re: Pics of my MK 1 Webely

At some point the cylinder was shaved. However, unlike the the shaved MK VI pistols I have seen, the metal was reblued not left in the white. This may have been part of the switch from black powder to cordite. It was found that the cordite was more efficient in a smaller case than used by the black ...

Re: M1917 or SMLE?

I have both! If one had to go, sorry US Model of 1917 but my No 1 MK III isn't going anywhere but the range.

Re: A question

Mark, your suggestion is the one I had thought to be the most likely answer. The brass is stamped .43 Spanish and 8 cases have been annealed. In due course, I will anneal all of the brass I have and then load it once again.

A question

I took my new to me Remington Rolling Block in .43 Spanish to the range and the very first round had a catastrophic failure with the case. It broke apart with one piece in my hand and the other still in the breech. Burner supplied to solution to getting the broken piece out which worked like a charm...

Range time last Sat

Last Saturday, I got to the range with good friends and some black powder rifles. My Springfield Trapdoor functioned flawlessly. I even hit the target more then a few times. The cloud of smoke was very satisfying as well. My remington rolling block was significantly less successful. The first round ...

Re: Alliant Black MZ Powder

I've purchased my black powder from Grafs. There is a HAZMAT fee but if you can get enough friends to go in on the buy it isn't too bad. Nice to know that Bass Pro Shop has it. Do you know if all of their stores carry it?
