    I use Doug Knoell's lube when the temps are warm here in the San Diego area. I have to be careful since it has honey in it if mice get into the garage they find my lubed bullets so I only do a few at a time. When cold, 50 or lower, I use Bore Butter...

    Boy oh boy, is that huge chunk of metal stainless steel or regular steel that you can blue. The setup I got from Petcatonica River had a carbon steel receiver so I could sand the polish then blue the metal finish. I ask because it is difficult to...

    On the ATF website they it is legal to "make" a firearm for personal use. I guess the same a build or assemble but a local San Diego gun shop was selling the parts for an AR-15 to a person that had passed the background check for the "lower"...

    With my 45 caliber I built a while back I bought everything from the folks at Pecatonica River. They do a great job and will get the parts set up right for you. On mine I use a 209 primer adapter so there is no chance of the percussion cap falling...

    Good points about the screws bottoming out in the hole and then causing a bump in the rifling. The mounts I bought were from Steve Earle and the first ones were too low for my large diameter scope as when I tried to adjust it to 300 yards the front...

    One of the really old members of our "Rod and Gun Club" told me it was a Pope made barrel and accessories as he remembers when the first local buyer in our area bought it. It was a national match and the seller had several barrels, lots of stocks...
