    Lots of nice sights, but not what I'm looking for. I did check Marlin owners. No one knows of any. I may just have to modify one to fit.

    I'm looking to put some kind of peep sight on my Camp 9. I found two rear sights that look like they will work. One looks like a 1903A3. The other looks like a M1 Carbine, but is a screw on, not dovetailed. I need a higher front sight....

    I did check Vintage Machinery. Lots of good information, but no instructions on how to work the "U" drive. I guess I'll figure it out when I get it back together.

    New law in Hawaii. No talking, looking, playing with any hand held device while crossing the street. It's a law that is needed. We have so many cell phone zombies around. They walk aimlessly into traffic all the time.

    I helped a friend zero his Remington 870. He has to shoot mostly sluggs and 00 buck. He got a Phoenix Technology Kicklite Tactical stock for it. I have to say, this stock works. Felt recoil is half of what it was. It's a AR style, 6 position,...

    I had a bunch of cast with different heads I got somewhere. Was in a plastic bag so I didn't know anything about them. They shot good. I kept a few of the one that shot the best. Going to pull down to see what powder and head. Looks like...

    No offense taken. You'd be surprised how many people still don't know we are part of the Good old US of A. When I used to travel to the states, I used to ask as a joke, if stores would take money from Hawaii. You'd be more surprised to know some...

    As I get older, I seem to notice and feel for those who have less than I do. I have from time to time. Even though I don't really have much myself. The few times I have, it didn't turn out for the best. Lots of these people seem to be all...

    I have enough 9mm brass. I was just wondering about the Blazers. Seems like a waste to not reload them, if it works as well as brass cases. I may try some. Thanks

    Yes. We, and Alaska, are a part of the United States of America. I use it almost all the time when shipping. I wish they would make a Extra large flat rate box.

    I was reading post on the Marlin forum, and lots of them said not to shoot cast in this rifle. I've shot a few trying to find a good boolet. Seems that they think, with the micro Groove barrel, it will lead foul. Any thoughts on this????

    Anyone reload the aluminum case Blazer???? Picked up some at the range and noticed they were boxer primed. I always though Blazers were Berdan primed.

    Correct. I'm looking for a dovetail that goes side to side, that is male (sticking up). I've never seen one, but maybe........... I did check with Skinner sights. Good looking sights. But to tall for me. Anyone know what happened to Mojo...

    I always try to have them ship USPS flat rate. Shipping is the same for anyplace in the USA. So it won't cost more to ship to us. I used to deal with Graf a lot. They would bend over backwards to fit everything in a flat rate box. Don't know...

    I'm trying to put a peep sight on my Marlin Camp 9. Don't want anything sticking up to high. No dot sight. I found a 1903A3 rear sight that looks like it would be perfect. Problem is it has a female dovetail on it. Does anyone know of a male...

    I used to order parts from Graf, but shipping prices are just to high now. Started to buy from Midsouth, but they don't have most of what I need. Midway charges $10 extra for any order to Hawaii. They don't want our business. Natchez, like...

    The adapter would be.... Female..IMR old metal can. Male...IMR new plastic bottle. It's for an old Pacific hand powder measure. Don't really need it, but it make it easier to use. Can/bottle has to be closed.

    Does anyone make an adapter to change from the old IMR metal can, to the new plastic bottle???? I have a powder measure that uses the old can. Now that the old can is a thing of the past, I need something to adapt the new plastic bottle to it.
