    I noticed that when I fired one of the older black coated GAMO lead BBs at sheet metal after firing a steel BB at the same sheet that the edges of the hole made by the lead BB was very uniform without the ragged edge and cracking of the metal of the...

    Heres one of the Garand Winter Triggers I mentioned. Not that expensive. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Original-M1-Garand-Winter-Trigger-G-69-/201733030230 I don't know how these clamp onto the Garand trigger guard, but it may be adaptable to your...

    A possible cause of slam fire with a Garand is if the rifle has been subjected to too many rounds that generated excessive gas port pressure. The bolt slamming hard against the rear of the receiver can distort the leg of the firing pin and jam the...

    The USMC preferred to bore out the "Hatcher Hole" in low number receivers to vent gases in the case of a ruptured case head. Sedgley and some other Gunmakers annealed and re-heat treated low number receivers before building custom sporters from...

    There are "Arctic Triggers" that were made for the Garand that clamped onto the trigger guard with an extended trigger hinged below the trigger guard. Intended for use when wearing extra thick gloves or even mittens. Something like that could allow...

    The CCI Stinger is a light weight bullet but it reaches its max velocity in barrels under 16" in length. Not sure of velocity in pistol barrels but it seems to be higher than you'd get from other .22 LR rounds. The bullet expands very rapidly. On...

    A real Sci Fi movie feel to this one. The Bull Pup platform makes a lot more sense as an urban combat weapon where much of the fighting happens inside buildings with limited space to bring a rifle to bear. Also better for disembarking from an APC or...

    The lugs may be hand lapped to bear evenly. Had a .243 788 in the early seventies. Traded it for a Volkswagon beetle engine. Had planned to buy another in .308 but they quit making them before I got around to it. I had assumed they'd be making...

    Depends on how thick the jacket and how sharp the kick in the pantaloons the charge gives to the projectile. Many early smokeless rifles used an undersized bullet that depended on upset to fill out the grooves. This was an effort to reduce...

    My 1851 replica had some cylinder drag after I set back the barrel lug to tighten up its original far to large cylinder gap. I discovered that the face of the cylinder was uneven. I wrapped a piece of iron rod in paper tape to form a tight fit in...

    When I was a youngster I wanted to convert my reminton 514 to .32 S&W or ACP. The action was just the right size, but the bolt might not have been strong enough, though I'm guessing it would have been. This bolt already had a spring loaded ejector...

    Try CCI Stinger ammunition. I got sub MOA groups with this cartridge from several Marlin and Glenfield .22 autoloaders. The cartridge seems very well suited to autoloaders especially hand guns and short barreled rifles. I always used the plated case...

    I always figured that the .22 Magnum rimfire was a more serious cartridge than the .22 LR and shorts, not intended for plinking or target shooting only for killing small and light medium game. In that role with ammunition expenditure being minimal...
