Re: Faux Swedish M41B sniper rifle

Looks good! I often wonder why more CMP sniper competitors do not use Swede 96s. Seems to me that the combo of the accurate M96/6.5 cartridge and ability to use the older Weaver K4 are an affordable alternative to 03s and 03A4s.
Good luck at the match, and congrats on scoring a real M41B---

Re: STAR Model 30M

The 30M is a great gun--built like a tank and well made.
Truth in Advertising--- I'm a fan of Spanish steel, especially Star and Astra. Sad day when they went out of business--
Enjoy your new pistol!

Re: Building a M-114 (or the M-13)

What a neat looking rifle! That is thinking outside the box---I really enjoy seeing "mods" that retain a military appearance/flavor.

Re: Greek Army Colt Army Special

Been a fan of the mid-frame Colts since I carried one (Colt .357) as a patrolman in Tennessee--great actions--same as Python--and great guns.
Always kind of wanted one in .41 Colt, but not being a handloader never took the plunge.

Great find on an Army Special that actually went to an army!!

Re: Got a nice model 94 (post 64) at the show and making plans

Congratulations on a great rifle. Got my first deer many years ago with a post-64 M94. Do give the scope to your friend --the Marlin wears a scope better than a M94. Your Win. will look great with a "peep" sight. Good luck this fall on your hunt.

Re: BLMW

Interesting--did u see any improvement in accuracy/consistency of groups??
I often wondered if lapping a milsurp bbl (esp. one with pittting/corrosion) was worth the effort, or was just cosmetic.

Re: Garand with muzzle brake

A problem that, IMO, is worse: semi-auto shooters (esp. AR shooters) that happily let their ejected empties hit the shooter next to them. Why they don't invest the few $$ for a brass catcher on a public range eludes me--

Re: Icebreaker

Glad to have u here---don't worry about what "others" may say about your stock mods. Not only is this a very friendly forum, the unspoken motto has always been: "Your gun--your decision". Yes, Jamie et al did a great job! I really enjoyed their articles on "how to" fix/mod and play with our milsurps--

Re: M88/05/34 ?

slowbob is right on the money--IMHO these are underpriced for the great shooters they usually are. All I have seen have very nice shiny bores, and that lovely smooth action. Just stay away from hot ammo (such as Turk surplus) and all will be well. You will have no problem with American Commercial am...

When he was at the Glock booth during SHOT show, he always had a smile and never rushed those wanting to talk with him, even tho the line to see him seemed a mile long.
