Re: Mauser HSc

Does anyone else have a bad trigger slap in their 7.65 model when you shoot?

These have a red seal paint on the primer, does that mean its corrosive ?
Unfortunately yes. With the gas system in an AR its going to be a lot of cleaning to get all the corrosive salts out and in some places impossible without putting the rifle in a bucket of hot soapy water.

They have some nice rifles in the $9.95 price range. "I'm just going to make a hunting rifle out of it. It will never be worth anything" How many times has that been said in the 60's and 70's.

Re: I picked up wooden crates and have a question.

I can say I have shot 7.62x54 that has looked worse than that. Pull a few of the worst ones apart and see if there is any corrosion inside.

Re: M1917 or SMLE?

I would go M1917. If your looking to restore a sporter look at some prices first on parts not cheap now days. The M1917 parts are interchangeable with each maker. The P1914 and P1913 had the parts problems with each maker. 30-06 would be cheaper and easier to find. They do have a 6rd mag and they we...

Re: I picked up wooden crates and have a question.

If you want to save the wooden crates, crack the lids open and put them in a large cardboard box, pop a bug bomb in the cardboard box and quickly tape it up for 24hrs or longer. If that doesn't do it nothing will.

7.62 OFV 86

Got a few rounds of 7.62X51 OFV 86. I believe its Indian and made in 1986. I was going to shoot it in a CETME. Is it corrosive, split cases anything like that?

A 1/10 of a grain difference in powder weights, that is surprisingly good for standard ball ammo. Thank you for doing the report.
