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: Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

How much effort does it take to cock the hammer? Is it uncomfortable to push the hammer back and catch the sear? If not,the hammer spring is too weak.

Re: Webley No. 4

All of my target photo's posted here over the years are long gone due to the many crashes.
I'll try to make it to the range this Wednesday and shoot a few rounds at 25 yards. Even with .452 bullets the pistol shoots well. I do shoot .455 powder coated bullets from time to time.

Re: Webley No. 4

Here is my pistol, 1915. The bore is bright and shiny. It loves my 250 grain round nose cast 250 grain bullets over 4.5 grains of Unique. Shoots to aiming spot. I have won several matches with this pistol and have fire a few thousand rounds out of it. It is my G0-To pistol in .45. Webley Mark V .jpg...

Re: So many German rifles lets make lamps out of them

Been there as a young teenager. Not as good as Interarmco's collection ( just up the street) but a neat place to visit. There were so many surplus firearms small and large to buy that many had little value other than a lamp or even a bar stool.

Re: CZ 70 came home today

I test fired the pistol today against my CZ 50 and CZ 27. It held it's own keeping all shots in a 3" group at 25 yards. ( 24 shots of cast bullet reloads.)
The pistol shoots left of center and the rear sight will need to be drifted a little.

Re: Got another CZ pistol

Fired the pistol today at 25 yards. It shot two inch groups if I did my part with 71 grain cast bullet reloads.Even though war time made,the barrel quality was first rate.
A fun pistol to shoot.

Re: Rust in Mosin 91/30 chamber

Are you sure it is rust and not baked on Cosmoline which is very common?

Mellow Yellow...

I was driving my Noped along my mountain when I found a field of half a million ARNICA flowers. I stopped and took a couple photos.

Re: Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

You say you have deep firing pin strikes. The only way the cartridge could not fire with a deep strike is a slow firing pin. I'd check for displaced Cosmoline or a weak spring.
Make sure the firing pin seat in the bolt is free and clear.

Cleaning rod in a drill motor with 0000-steel wool and light oil works very well. Keep rod moving back/forth.

It looks to be still in 8x50R? Nice carbine.
