    The barrel change method is unusual. Theres a barrel jacket that the hooded front sight is mounted onto. apparently you just loosen the front sight screw and slide the barrel liner out to replace it with another. The flexible Chamber/seal can be...

    There were several prototypes before the Springfield 03 as we know it was finalized. At least one had a single row mag like that of the 1891 Mauser. A stripper clip designed by a US Army officer was considered but the Mauser stripper clips were...

    While the M1917 has many good points it has a few bad ones as well. The position of the bolt knob was mentioned as a problem when the rifle was tested by Ordnance officers who cut their teeth on the Krag and 03. The first high powered bolt action...

    Don't know if it applies to pellets but lightweight zinc alloy casr boolits appear to achieve best accuracy if you use only these boolits till the bore becomes "Sherardized" whatever that means. I suspect its a sort of seasoning of the bore. Zinc...
