    Good guess. As I remember it the process was described as the prisoners being forced to walk through a sort of maze and halted every so often till the lead prisoner found himself alone facing a drop off and a fire pit. The executioner then stepped...

    Some of the earliest air rifles were .75 caliber and intended for hunting game as large as European wild boar. There is a video of a .50 air rifle shattering a concrete block. Impressive shocking power but I still would not consider it a big game...

    This would be much like the homemade rocket ball projectiles some have experimented with for the old daisy diesel firing rifles. They stopped manufacturing the rocket ball pellets just as I had decided to buy one that had been on the shelf at a auto...

    The P-40 was a development of the radial engine P-36 which is where its elegant lines came from. The design was ahead of its time in 1940 but was in the end a dead end. It couldn't take full advantage of more advanced engine designs. A great...

    I'm sure there are modern synthetic materials that could be used for piston cups and seals that would withstand any possible abuse of dieseling. A battery powered pre heater for both combustion chamber and fuel reservoir would improve consistency...

    An interesting compensation related problem resulted in the perception that the older Lee Enfield was not as good as the 1893 Mauser at long range during the Boer Wars. In fact the Enfield in use there were coming no where near the mark as the...

    I found that when using a slip on pad my group sizes increased. So now in summer I just fold a thick washcloth and put it on my shoulder under my T-shirt. In winter if wearing a winter coat recoil doesn't bother me. Shooting is more consistent...

    An advantage of the M1903 was a phenomena that was the subject of much study at the time and should be studied by any modern firearms maker. All Bolt Action receivers that have any sort of ejection port have a slight flex when fired. The more open...

    Warming the barrel up to try to expand it might help. A tube shape expands more quickly than a solid rod shape. I do this to remove tightly stuck bolts or screws sometimes. PS could you have drilled into a previously done liner? That might...

    No the back case is not Gold or gold plated, its bare stainless steel , which I thought was a bit ill suited to an engraved presentation watch. The bezel and lugs were gold filled and the broken lug appears to have been cast around a slender rod...

    From reading of the match results of the era when these rifles were standard issue for their respective militaries I'd rank the Springfield 1903 first followed by the Mauser 1891. The P-14 and M1917 rifles were perhaps a RCH less accurate than...

    Multigunner replied to a thread My new rifle in AirGuns
    I'd check the screws before each outing, for awhile at any rate. The spring piston guns have quite a jolt when fired. The screw heads or washers under them will tend to compress the new wood till it becomes fully stable. A touch of lock tight...
