    Wonder how these would perform if rebarreled or relined to 7.6X25 ?

    I've read that the threading for the blank shredder/adapter is often not concentric or in line with the bore. If not perhaps the threading can be cleaned up before mounting a thread adapter.

    Full auto and select fire CO2 guns are becoming more advanced in recent years. Umarex makes a very nice replica of the MP40. The SMG-22 by Air Ordnance looks to be a lethal package. You could cut a medium size dog in half with that one. A...

    "Baker Airguns has late Benji 342 pump handles" Thanks I'll look into those. I have some well seasoned walnut planks that I'd probably use if I make my own. I do my own checkering for handgun grips, though I haven't checkered a grip in many...

    "But if so, it would be no problem to tune it to effectively use a longer barrel. " No technical problem but the parts would add a bit to the expenses. From what I've found on this sort of conversion its a matter of total volume of the valve...

    Main attraction for CO2 guns is as repeaters, either revolver or autopistol replicas. I like my 38T revolver and my S&W 78g single shot, both fine guns through the 38T always had component durability issues. The 78g is a remarkably accurate and...

    Well I'm all but finished with this conversion, Still some work to do but I mounted a new .22 receiver with bolt and a .2260 .22 24" barrel. I also obtained the proper end cap with band for the conversion. I found I had to cut away part of the...

    Multigunner replied to a thread new project in Military Rifles
    Between wars the US Army had a number of Springfield 1903 rifles converted to .45 ACP as short carbines. These were experimental only. The .45 is a deadly beast from a handgun length barrel so its bound to be a stone killer from a carbine length...

    Do they make this gun with the detachable holster stock? Probably cost prohibitive.

    A reproduction of the Pederson device would likely require a disconnect built into the device itself to be legal otherwise it would turn a rifle into an SMG rather than a semi auto. The various .22 LR conversion kits with chamber inserts for the...

    Main alteration to these after the Pederson device was dispensed with was returning the trigger mechanism to the original Springfield type. The M1 trigger had some sort of disconnect to prevent fully automatic firing when the Pederson device was...

    "I've never noticed "thread drift" at this site." Thread drift is another product of the Bernoulli effect, as opposed to thread stripping which involves girls spinning around ungreased stripper poles while wearing knitted thongs.

    The same effect is responsible for "spin drift". In the case of modern rifle bullets the vacuum forms near the bullet base and pulls the rear of the bullet out of its normal line of flight. As the bullet looses velocity its speed of rotation...

    The HK they tested had a much shorter barrel than the M4 they tested, which may have had an effect on the outcome. The shorter barrel would have held less water.
