    The 32 Special was marketed as suited to factory smokeless powder loads or black powder reloads. The state of development of smokeless powders of the day was not that good. lack of quality control by some manufacturers and rapid degradation of...

    SMLE Mk1 bores were "reverse taper lapped" for the last 14 inches of the bore to the muzzle. This was an attempt to get the same velocity and range when using the MkVI cartridge as the longer LE barrel by reducing friction. The Cordite Mk1...

    If its debris in the valve assembly you could try flushing it out with water or alcohol by squirting the pump chamber full then working the handle till you feel back pressure. If fluid comes out the muzzle its a stuck valve. If flushing doesn't work...

    Mine's an 80's model originally smoothbore but upgraded with rifled barrel. After replacing the original valve during a reseal it does not seem to hit as hard. The original valve is brass with steel stem, the replacement is plastic with steel stem....

    "one is original matching 8mm and the other has been worked over into a Euro-Sporter that's now a 7x57. " I would certainly like to see that rifle. I like the older European sporters.

    An indentation in the breech face due to dry firing can cause FTF. Federal ammo has had a very few FTF in a few of my rimfires. If a gun has any sort of problem Federal ammo will reveal it.

    I've seen AP bullets with the double cannelure. I was told these were Israeli made bullets and the two cannelures were so the bullet could be seated to the proper depth in the .30-06, the 7.62X31 Nato, or the 7.62X54R Russian cartridges.

    I've occasionally heard what sounded like a leak when charging my S^W 78g but with no signs of gas actually escaping. examining the capsule later I found the cap had only a very tiny pin hole, what I was hearing was gas from the capsule passing...

    I remember an article on a one off Mauser takedown sporting rifle prototype made in 1896 that was the daddy of the model 98 action. The action of the sporter looked very much like the later large ring M98. The extra beef in the receiver ring was...

    Bore line is angled ever so slightly upward in relation to line of sight. Closer than ten yards the bore line is below line of sight at ten yards it intersects. At 20 yards though the pellet is dropping in relation to line of the bore its still...

    The early 8mm Mauser sporting cartridges loaded by major US Companies used a .321 diameter bullet first developed for the .32-40. IIRC only the German sporting rifles intended for use with lead alloy Boolits originally had the .318 bore. These were...

    All the German cartridges either designed specifically for a Mauser action or adapted to work in it are exceptionally well thought out and were carefully tested before being put into service. Not every manufacturer did such a great job in production...

    More stuf comes loose when you clean after warming the barrel by firing a few rounds. When I have a rifle with stubborn fouling I carry my cleaning rod to the range and clean the bore after every three or five rounds, wet the bore for the trip...

    When using any strong copper solvent for filling up a bore and leaving it over night or longer the only real danger of bore damage is if the solvent does not completely fill the bore leaving an interface of solvent and air. the air reacts with the...

    I did some basic power mods on my S&W 78g. It was getting about 400 FPS with 35 good shots per capsule and two or three more reduced velocity shots. First I replaced the exhaust valve with a MAC 1 Hot Valve, which allows faster more efficient gas...

    An excellent design. Time tested and with unusually high power for such a low cost CO2 gun. If I did not already have an S&W78g and a Crosman Mk1 the 2240 would be next on my list. Had my eye on a Sheridan of similar design but I expect the...

    "How hard is it to replace the piston washer on those? " I have no idea. I'm glad I didn'y have to strip this one down. From the looks of it the gun was made for ease of assembly with little thought to disassembly. You could try soaking the...

    PS I tried putting a .177 lead pellet in the chamber of the 35 but the bolt would not close and I had some difficulty in punching it out with a cleaning rod. I guess the bore of this particular gun is barely big enough for steel BBs which seldom...

    I wish you had mentioned that earlier. My friend picked up the 35 about an hor ago. I did not think to try any of my GAMO lead BBs in this gun. I did try the lead BBs in my Umarex Colt Peacemaker with smoothbore BB barrel, but at such low...
