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.

A semi gloss epoxy paint after a slight roughing up with coarse steel wool

NM MILSURP Snap Shooting match for May

We practiced doing "Snap-Shooting" today at 50 and 100yards. While 50 yards is very doable,100 is not. Shooting must be done in no longer than THREE Seconds. No more. Mount,Point,Fire. We found 75 yards is ideal. So,we will have a "squad" of bad guys set to 50,62,70 and 75 yards as a dispersed colum...

Re: WW1 Piercing arrows - Flechettes

A nice piece of history.
At super sonic speeds they would have been deadly.
Both sides in WWII used them .We called ours "Yellow Dog Bomblets" They looked like a core of a .50 BMG bullet with fins.

Re: Fireforming 41 Swiss (With bullets??)

For the large bore and chamber,the loads you list would be fine. If you have not annealed your cases after all the die forming,it would be a good idea to do so. At the cost of the brass cases it is better to have the brass in a soft state for fire-forming.

Yes you can,but do not use a so-called "light" load as blowback can be rough on your face. Use a full house known load that you have used in the past.

Sell it. The stock will be expensive. Replacing the bolt would add to the cost as well.

Re: WW2 war trophies

Yes you could bring home SMG's,though it was frowned upon as the 1934 BATF still required a 200 dollar tax stamp, you were supposed to register any SMG,MG or destructive device when you got home. Many did not. 200 was a lot of money back then. So many Title II, Class three weapons were brought home ...

Re: Did you know,Martini Cadet ammunition in WWII?.......

Looks like a fun load to try.
I was going through my Martini stuff and found I have a .32 W/Special complete military front end.(barrel,sights,etc). Must have been pulled off decades ago and put in a corner before I got it 30 years ago in a trade.
