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: Mossberg 42M

I wonder if someone shot it in matches and put a ‘dimple’ in the stock grip ‘cap’ area everytime they did?

Re: A bore'ing story about a '98 Krag at 500 yards

Sounds great! Can’t wait to hear your results and I hear you on their bores being “all over the place”. Haven’t taken mine out past 200-yds yet, but am having tons of fun with it using cast boolits & CE Harris loads through it. We have an informal milsurp shoot weekly using cast loads only and its a...

Re: M4 sherman In WWII

Watched another episode last night about a couple US M26 Pershing heavy tanks that did make it to Europe in early ‘45 as the US Army was heading deeper into Germany. It had a 90mm cannon and one tank knocked out 3 Tiger 1s. Other M26s in that same tank company all had severe mechanical problems, as ...

Re: The picture find of a lifetime

What a great find! ‘Divine intervention’ I’d call it. Regardless of which side they were on ... we all revere and remember our WW2 Fathers; what they volunteered for or were asked to do is beyond the comprehension of the youths today. Take Normandy, 18-year old kids (on both sides) facing rifle & m...

FWIW I just viewed a VERY interesting video by Nicholas “The Chieftain” Moran who debunks and counters MOST of the arguments made against the Sherman tank. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bNjp_4jY8pY He uses all US Board of Ordinance quotes and official documents as well as official records from Brita...

Re: HiPoint customer service

Their customer service is often said to be outstanding. They have a lifetime- no questions asked - guarantee regardless if you are the original purchaser or not. I have their 9mm version of that rifle and whilst a little ungainly in the hand (although I made it balance better by removing all the ‘t...

Re: 9mm hunting rifle barrel

My guess, pre-WW1 9.3mm barrel. See German proof marks, see: https://www.germanguns.com/tech-corner.html , as I recognize the B and the U proof marks. Marks showing crowns over the letters B = Beschuss = proof load fired and U = Untersuchung = inspected/viewed for defects, (proof approved). The '108...

Re: High Standard 22LR cost in 1933

FYI, they are (or were) still in business, but no longer sell guns. In the late 80s the owner figured out that they could keep the same talented engineering/machinst work force and industrial site full of machine tools, but to make and sell parts to the aircraft engine industry ... at 2X the profit ...

High Standard 22LR cost in 1933

Not a military pistol, so please forgive me, but going through my late Father’s items I found this receipt from his Father and thought you might enjoy it. $13 in 1933 ... go figure!

Re: M95 Mauser in .308 value?..or M93?

FWIW the going price on 1916 Mausers in 308 on G-Broker is closer to $300. I have the HP White tests on one from Samco and they tested it w/ commercial 308, but I would limit it to 7.62 Nato loadings at most. Had great luck w/onew/ cast loads using the infamous “CE Harris” cast loads of either 16.0-...
