    IIRC the FAL failed the cold weather tests, the M14 passed. :ater production FAL of course are reliable in the cold. The Israelis did have problems with the FAL in sandy conditions. Some later FAL versions have sand cuts in the bolt carrier to...

    Zinc alloy (Kirksite?) boolits are as tough as FMJ and only 2/3 the weight of a lead boolit thrown by the same mold. This can alloy very high velocity light recoil loads for a large bore firearm. US Army Ordnance once used zinc alloy Boolits to test...

    The old brass radio aerials were usually 6mm to 1/4" ID. A golf club shaft of the stepped type has an ID very close to the size of a .32 S&W boolit and the next step is a perfect ID fit for a S&W chamber. Too thin for me to trust but obviously some...

    Our trees make walnuts that have a very strong taste that I don't care for. Also since losing my last molars I don't eat nuts these days. Anyway I've begun a new batch of natural walnut stain. Been some years since I made any. I take whole...

    There should probably be more designated marksmen two or more per squad armed with 7.62X51 rifles whether scoped or not. The M14 seems to fill that role nicely. The 5.56 weapons seem to be deployed as a substitute for SMG and carbine rather than as...

    I can vouch for the seller, I've bought several CO2 pistols from him in the past. He does usually insist on using the most expensive method of shipping with insurance so you can expect $20 or more to be added to the price. If I had not had to...

    Multigunner replied to a thread airgun basics in AirGuns
    Supersonic velocities of some pellet rifles sound great but fact is a flat or cupped base boolit that drops below super sonic velocities not far after leaving the muzzle will suffer from highly magnified effects of trans sonic shock. Better to...

    If you are interested in an accurate, reliable and all metal (except for the cylinder itself in the case of the second variation) the first and second variation .22 38T is IMHO the best CO2 revolver for the purpose. The .22 38T has a metal rear...

    I don't think you'll find a standardized rifling pattern. My Umarex colt leaves very deep well defined land marks in the lead pellets, Crosman revolvers in .177 don't seem to have defined lands and leave very little in the way of engraving. .22...

    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...

    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....

    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...

    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.

    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...
