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: What is this front sight from?

Did the M14 NM front sights come uncut and have to be dovetailed by an armorer for a custom fit?

Re: P38 under French control.

indy, if they are firing on the hammer drop safety then somethings out of specs and/or gummed up with grime. Parts to look at after a full takedown and cleaning of the slide are: firing pin, firing pin lock and spring, and safety catch. As stated before P1 and P38 have a few different parts. The fir...

Re: Best m1a mags to buy

Just found 2 new BRW S-1 mags in the bunker. Do they really bring $100+? I know I have about 5-6 more of different makers. Am I going to have to keep mags in a safe now. I have 4-20rd CMI mags that I shoot with and have been 100% good for me.

Re: HARD to lock clips in

If the rifle is working fine other than the heavy clip locking then it should be assembled correctly. With all that being eliminated then you're going to have to start looking at parts out of specs, clip latch, follower, follower arm, follower rod etc. Sorry , but that's the best I can say without b...

Re: HARD to lock clips in

Is it hard to push the clip down the last half inch till it locks down and releases the bolt or the whole way? If you're not use to it, it can seem extreme. Tried another type of clip(aftermarket, U.S. or foreign military)? Ammo seated all the way to back of clip? Heavy new finish on clips and/or ri...

Non-corrosive and should be boxer primed. I've fired a bit of that brand in 7.5x55 Swiss with no problems.

Re: P38 under French control.

40,500 total, I thought there would be a lot higher number built. They don't seem to bring the money a WW2 built P38 that was produced in the 300,000+ would.

P38 under French control.

Are there any numbers on how many were made under French control in 1945-46? This would be the P38 referred to as "the gray ghost".

Found a last ditch Nagoya type 99 rifle and have a question for those who know more than me about them. Did the last ditch rifles have a steel box magazine inside them or was it done away with on the last ditch rifles? The rifles complete other than that missing and the mum filed off. Thanks for any...

No, but the front sight usually does not interfere or appear in the scope.
I was hoping that it wouldn't interfere with the sight picture in the scope. Thank you....
