    "As we know, that round was a rehash of the 1906 Ball round that was found lacking in combat in WWI and which generated the need for a better round." The .30-06 Ball round was not "found lacking" as an infantry rifle cartridge. You have a way of...

    Since the thread has been revived, though without any additional information to speak of I should add that M2 AP was not on average (all things being equal) as accurate at ranges up to 600 yards as was the M2 Ball. The acceptable Mean Radius of M2...

    When I bought a rifled barrel made for an M4 177 Crosman to replace the smoothbore barrel of my 760 I found the barrel had a very raggedly cut crown. Accuracy was not very bad but so so at best. I recrowned that barrel and it now prints consistent...

    If I'm correct the alloy used is one that is in fact far stronger than carbon steel. The Beryllium Bronze alloys used by the USN and manufacturers of tools for use in areas where fuel vapors might explode if a spark were struck by steel tools are...

    The 1891 Argentine Mauser has a great reputation for accuracy, rivaling that of the 1903 Springfield which came along years later. In one international match the Argentine team very nearly won but they had adopted an early VLD type long nosed...

    If these are the ones I'm thinking off they have the striking power of a .357 or there abouts. The plastic bullet does not have much penetration power but it will shoot through the fender or door of a car. I've read that they considered using...

    I would not bother with one of these. They were never very reliable and extremely difficult to re pair successfully. I'm not sure but they may have had one for sale on Baker Airgun's site. You could check there first.

    Excessive packing grease in the bores seems to be the standard these days. The 24" barrel I got for my carbine conversion took forever to clean. The bore of the rifled barrel for my 760 was also thickly coated with tough to remove grease. I used...

    Heard only good things about these. IIRC they are based on the Crosman 2260. Before getting back into multi pump guns I had a short list of .22 CO2 rifles I was considering getting, the QB78 was high on the list.

    Just be sure the steel you use for the pin is not too hard or too soft. Either could cause serious problems. If the pin isn't secure it may back out preventing firing. If brittle it could break if soft it could shear. Best to use only OEM if...

    Did someone, perhaps Erma, once manufacture a .22 Magnum gas operated replica of the M1 Carbine? I've seen the .22 LR blowback version but seem to remember a .22 Magnum version that used some form of locked breech or hesitation blowback system.

    I would not consider a barrel with that big and sloppy a weld to be worth the investment of re-boring. Even if the chamber didn't swell somewhere down the line its likely the harmonics are way off. It would be only a little more expensive to find...
