    Soapstone is better than chalk IMO but file cards should be outlawed, I would never subject my files to one of those stikin things!!! First off they don't work very well, they do a fair job of removing the bigger clogs from the teeth that cause...

    I bought a "grab bag" of files on Ebay a couple of years ago that was described as having several Nicholson files that looked to be unused (which did in fact turn out to be brand new), it was also supposed to include several files of unknown make...

    I think it was you who put me onto Boggs a while back in another thread and they are everything folks claim about them, dull files return sharp enough to cut yourself on and cost very little compared to buying new ones.

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    https://www.atf.gov/file/100871/download What activities require a dealer’s license? Federal law does not establish a “bright-line” rule for when a federal firearms license is required. As a result, there is no specific threshold number or...

    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...

    One of the main issues with the early 17M2 in semi-auto's are dirty chambers. Later some of the manufacture oversized the chambers to limit this issue than cracked neck and shoulders became an issue. I have one of the first Magnum Research 17M2's....
