    I have picked up a 243Win Westerner version of the above rifle, the serial number puts it in the 1982 range. It was a farm rifle with a pretty good bore, but lots of pitting on the bolt and exterior from sweaty hands no doubt. The bolt shroud was...

    The vise was the next step. It was 100+degrees in the evening here and my Wife and I were sitting under the aircon and the best I has was Vice Grips, haha. I'll try it downstairs in the morning. Thanks.

    Next minit! It's 2019. I obviously got busy when I got back from China and this post slipped through the net. I have just acquired another push feed Model 70 Win Westerner in 243Win. This one is a rough ex farm rifle that I picked up real cheap....

    In my previous residence, I had installed a gas furnace and was impressed, so I did the same here a few years later. The first was plumbed with black iron and the next with a flexible line coated with a yellow plastic. I never got an ad suggesting...

    My experience with after market add on accessories is dismal. Most are cheaply made at exorbitant prices and have a history of less than a years service before failure. Even the factory installed ones don't seem to last, but then YMMV. I'm...

    With all the smart vehicle technology why can't they make all cars with the ability of a remote starter? At my age that's a useful extra on just a few currently. The only time I had a vehicle broken in to was after an officer insisted I lock it...
