Cheap ammo & value of rifle.

I see a lot of type 38 and 99 rifles in good shape go for under $150 all the time. Is it because of lack of affordable ammo for them? If there was a cheap steel case ammo at $7-8 for a 20rd box would they bring more? I'm thinking this way because of Mosins going for over $350 now when they were impo...

Re: 9mm hunting rifle barrel

Thank you, I definitely know more know then when I got this barrel. It's weird they use the same gauge as shotguns to determine a rifled barrels bore before rifling. I was hoping the " 9,0 H " would tell what round it would be for. I was thinking a 9x57 but it maybe a 9.3x62. I may have to make a wa...

Re: Ethiopian 30-06

It's nice stuff I bought it because it is boxer primed your fingers will get sore de linking it. If you take a shell holder out of a reloader die set that it fits and put it in a vise by the base(don't over tighten) facedown and break the belt up into 30 or so round belts put the extractor ring in ...

Re: My ammo for the 380 looks the same as the 9x18 !

Both rounds where made for a blow back pistol design, meaning only spring tension holds the slide in battery while firing. The Makarov round is getting close to max ability for a pistol of that design. A round with more power would need a locking lug of some sort to delay blow back or a super heavy ...

Re: My ammo for the 380 looks the same as the 9x18 !

9mm Makarov(9x18mm) is only marginally higher in velocity than 380acp(9x17mm). The Makarov maybe around 100 fps faster. The Makarov has a larger diameter bullet than the 380 and is not interchangeable. 9x18 ultra or police is a different round than the Makarov also but very rare to come across.

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.
