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: GEW 98 need year made by serial number please.

It's a sniper rifle. I'm not willing to remove the scope mount. It's a DWM made rifle so it has to be before 1918.

Re: yugo shooting high

There are many factors that come into play as to why a rifle shoots high. Has the rifle been dropped on it's front sight and the soldier/armored removed the bend or crushed portion of the sight? Any material removed from the top of the "barley-corn" front sight will cause it to shoot high. What bull...

Re: Burners fault (now I want a new FAL)

Years ago I was fortune enough to get an unissued L1A1 parts kit.( strange that the semi-auto receiver could not be sold to us?) And put the kit on a purpose built Inch receiver that was dear to buy. I tried every maker,surplus,commercial,my accurate hand loads,etc to see if the rifle would shoot. I...

Thank you for posting the photo's. It's a shame that S/S stock is now in different hands. Greed will kick in and the prices will soar.

Re: Burners fault (now I want a new FAL)

You'd be hard pressed to beat the STG-58 in quality and accuracy. I have a few FAL's and the STG-58 is the best
Stay away from the L1A1 or the like. ( inch)
Stick with the metric rifles.

Re: yugo shooting high

Quick dry would be the best., Once you find the correct height, buy the barley-corn front sight you need.
You can mold the JB Weld into the shape you want. Wax paper will sometimes help when it is sticky to your fingers.

Re: 8mm reloading

As stated above, the two most common military loads were the 150 grain and the 198 grain Spitzer bullet. The rifling twist of the 8x57 M/M Mauser rifles and carbine are the same so any country's firearms should shoot both bullets well. The condition of the lead,bore and muzzle crown are key factors ...

Re: Beginning a Second Build.

I have several AR's in different calibers. The .300 Whisper ( BLK) is really not worth the effort if you shoot long range. If your a close range blaster,100 yards or closer, it is a good cartridge. Not too many riflemen shoot this cartridge for what it was designed to do. Lob a 220 grain bullet,subs...

I guess you could call it an "Enigma"

I just came back from a 'Nam reunion in Washington D.C. On the way back to my old stomping grounds we stopped by Ft. Meade and the NSA Museum. Inside is all sorts or really neat Crypto gear and some very interesting stories. Around one corner was a WWII German Enigma en/de-coding machine that is ful...
