    Try Meister Kuglien .22 pellets. These are about as accurate as you can get in both pistols and rifles. With my re built .177 880, using older cast metal receiver and pump arm mated to more recent production rifle, I found I could get a much...

    I was considering a reversible cartridge conversion for my 1851 Colt replica using a spare cylinder from a busted brass frame gun I stripped for parts. To get around the lack of rim clearance and to better fit the bullet to bore size I did some...

    Does this one have the wooden stock? I think you can still load these without the clips, they just make it more convenient. I'm fairly sure I've seen some of those clips for sale somewhere. I'll look at some sites I've visited in the past...

    Actually I believe Latvia did have its own version of the Mauser in .303 British. I don't think it went into production. It was a common practice for smaller European countries that had acquired large quantities of British MGs left over from WW1 to...

    I have a cigarette roller that was antique when given to me 40 years ago. Stamped into the front of the case is a small six pointed star but not in the same two triangles form as the Star of David. It most resembles the Arab six pointed star found...

    Some features of the M14 that improve its usefulness as a military rifle are academic for the civilian shooter and even detrimental in the case of the chrome lined bores which were proven to be just a tad less accurate than the unlined bore of the...

    Interestingly I found that the star of David only became closely associated with the Jews during the 19th century. It has been a part of a number of religions and national traditions. Still is but seldom seen in any other context.

    "Was the Obendorf factory also Jewish owned ?" Ludwig Lowe owned a controlling interest in the Mauser factory. They also owned DWM at one time. That looks like a Star of David and it might be just that, but Both Syria and Egypt have used a six...

    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...

    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...

    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...
