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: CZ ( VZ ) 50 quality question

Targets fired. Blue was 20 yards, Black was ten yards both fired on by my wife, Elaine. With a better trigger pull she would have done better.

Re: CZ ( VZ ) 50 quality question

Pistol showed up today. Overall condition is 9/10. Pistol was dirty. Bore is like new. I took the pistol apart down to the last pin and soaked it my ultrasound machine for an hour. It cleaned up well. Trigger pull in double-action is awful. My Wife cannot pull it. Single action is about 6 pounds wit...

Re: Just some underwood goodness

Very nice indeed. They look to be in great shape. I hold a Carbine Match once a year out to 300 yards. The bullet is still very accurate at that distance ( shot out M2 barrels are not of course). While the bullets energy at that distance will not dent the steel target, it does still fragment into pi...

Shooting in the rain.

Our monsoon season started today. A steady rain with light winds. At the range we were practicing for this months 300 yard Rapid Fire match. The ground at the impact berm was damp. As we fired at the target,the shots that missed struck the damp earth and a cloud of steam,yes steam, was generated as ...

Re: IMR-7383...don't overlook this powder

I just fired 100 rounds of 6.5x55mm Swede out of my Jlungman rifle. I'm using the Privi 140 grain SPBT bullet over 37 grains of IMR7383. The load is very accurate and clean burning. No unburnt powder is left in the bore. The load is very good in the rifle and carbine.

IMR-7383...don't overlook this powder

IMR-7383 or RAD-78 was used in the ,50 caliber spotting gun used to zero the 105mm Recoilless Rifle. The powder is a medium slow powder and not a .50 BMG powder. Over the years this powder has proven to be outstanding in many centerfire cartridges. It is easy to light and even in my desert climate s...

Re: Thompson M1A1 from my collection

I can no longer post videos here due to Youtube pulling all my uploads showing us shooting. I have some videos of us shooting my 1928 I can send you if you want to see them?
If your gun has the felt oilers on a spring finger, you will see them when you remove the trigger assembly.

Re: Thompson M1A1 from my collection

Very nice. The oil is very rare as well. Does your gun have the lubricating pads removed or are they still there as in the M1921?
