    Hot loaded 9mm SMG ammo is a well recognized fact. If you could find a previous thread on this sort of thing IIRC Gibson mentioned extra hot .30 ammunition being manufactured for use in the 1919a6 I think in the 60's or later. The A6 had several...

    I suspect that the origin of the smoothbore M16 myth came from very far sighted recruits looking down the bore when cleaning and seeing nothing. My older Brother was very far sighted and too stubborn to wear reading glasses. I once showed him a...

    There were still quite a few pre 1940's aircraft in USAF inventory armed with .30-06 wing or cowl guns, as well as flexible guns. Most of these wouldn't have lasted long against the Japanese aircraft of the time so you don't hear much about them....

    I found this service manual long ago somewhere else on the net, I forget where I found it. It has been very helpful in understanding how these guns work and how to restore them to working condition.

    Fine looking rifle. I could have bought one of these from my LGS in virtually new condition for $20 USD in 1970. No one had gotten around to converting these to centerfire back then, or at least no one I knew had heard of such a conversion. Wish...

    The 2240 is almost all metal, though the receiver and sights are plastic its very durable, accurate and as powerful if not more so than your Mk1. These are on sale recently marked down to 59.99 with free shipping. A great deal. The Umarex Colt...

    I've bought two 24" barrels off Ebay at reduced prices of a little over $20. You just have to keep an eye out for deals like this. Most Crosman pistols of recent vintage have barrels with the same chamber and transfer port position and the same...

    My 13XX in .22 with 24" barrel hits 587 FPS at 15 pumps. IIRC it was hitting around 535 at 10 and 565 at 12. From what I've heard it might get higher velocity with a somewhat shorter barrel. Some say that these get the highest velocity with a 14...

    The Yildiz single shot with its slim barrel looks like a good candidate for a removable bore liner. A liner could have the breech end turned to the proportions of a 410 shell and the muzzle end protrude a half inch or more and be threaded for a...

    Best to use a bolt with some of the shank unthreaded so it doesn't wear out the pump arm holes. A steel rod of the proper diameter threaded at each end and then case hardened might be best. You might find something made for the purpose at...

    Some prefer to replace the roll pin with a nut and bolt that can be tightened. That's how I'd go with it.

    +1 on cleaning the bores of pellet guns. Whatever dry lube some pellets use appears to clog the rifling after much firing. I use a plastic bristle brush and swab soaked with lighter fluid. The swab always comes out black after the first few...

    I think the standard issue .38 British revolver cartridge of WW2 used a 170 grain jacketed bullet. The original pre WW2 load used a 200 grain boolit and the round was then designated the .38/200. There were probably rounds of both types issued at...

    A very slightly jugged chamber can slow down extraction of standard velocity spent cases. Many older .22 RF barrels were made of steel a bit too soft for modern .22 RF high speed loads. This is a well recognized problem of the Winder Musket...

    Barrel bands often adversely affect accuracy especially with higher powered rifles. If you wish to retain the band for looks or for a sling mount point I've found its best to arrange it so the band has a visible air gap between it and the barrel,...

    A trick to overcome in part the trigger problem of the 880 is to always engage the safety and before shooting while the rifle is pointed safely downrange take up as much slack as you can with the safety engaged then release the safety and squeeze...
