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: Spanish M1916 Comparison

You got me looking at my 1916 rifle. Mine is stamped with the caliber of 7.52, but has the cross bolt. Sight #3 position still unmarked in anyway. Took off the hand guard and the barrel is set back. Any idea about the caliber stamp???

Re: RUBY Won't Load

Mark,

When I was making ammo for my French long 32 I was having the same type of issue, turned out my AOL was a little too short in my case. I realize these are factory loads, but see what they are running.

Re: Converting .348 Win to 10.4mm Italian Vetterli

C&H makes dies for that caliber I bought a set for my rifle. Ended up using a 255gn bullet .429 diameter. If I remember correctly I tried a heavier one but it didn't want to chamber properly. It was sometimes faster to go through Buffalo when ordering C&H dies, they would have them in stock, where y...

Mark,

Are you shooting hollow points or FMJ bullets, some autos only feed FMJ consistently.

Re: Removing Berdan primers with RCBS Tool

I tried the hydraulic method on some Werndl cases I had, got soaking wet, but I got them out. Have any of you converted a Berden case to a boxer case, like was mentioned in the video?

Re: 8mm Lebel Pistol Ammo

Mark, When I made my brass for the lebel pistol, I just cut down the 32-20 brass. If i remember correctly you cut behind the neck area so you are already close to the correct diameter. I use one of those small cut off saws from Harbor Freight, had to make holders for the brass so I could handle smal...

Re: MAS 49

I bought an adjustable gas valve arrangement for my 49/56. I contact a fellow who goes by the name of starmetal on Gunboards, he was making them a couple of years ago, don't know if he is still doing it. It is supposed to let you adjust it so the brass falls closer to you, ya know, in a nice order r...

Re: Webley MARK VI In 455

If you look at the broad arrows you will see a pair that the points are nose to nose. That mark indicates that the pistol was sold. You really lucked out finding an uncut one, the one I have was shaved.

Re: 1907 Savage

Do you have any with the early magazine release?? The front rib of the handle had a recess like a finger relief so the magazine could be dropped by depressing it with your ring finger. these used the lower cut out you see in the magazines. They were changed to the later style you see with the releas...

Re: T-33 and M-57

After I got rid of my CZ-52, I needed another Tokarev to fire the ammo I had. Finally settled on a M57 as the price of the T-33 has gone through the roof. Here is a picture of it with the after market grips offers by razorarms.com, sure made it a lot more comfortable and removed any recoil bite. I r...
