    Thatís essentially what happened on my first return almost exactly, except they did work on the breechblock and put on a different buttstock. The second time they fixed the ftf but declined to fit the buttstock at all or tell me why they changed it.

    Leading WILL occur at the thread choke, but is a RESULT, not the cause, which is collapsing the barrel shank at the root of the thread from over-torquing the barrel in assembly.

    A bit of thread choke where the barrel is turned into the frame is not surprising. Most of the time this can be fire-lapped out. If your bullets are only a wee bit oversized I would try shooting some as-cast, with Lee Liquid Alox and a moderate...

    .35 Remington is correct. But also clouding the issue is the effect of varying cylinder gap, which is every bit as important as barrel length, yet very seldom, if ever mentioned in test data you are likely to find online. With standard-pressure...

    Now,now, farm raised AMERICAN catfish is good to go, fed a pelleted feed and raised with pretty strict standards. Foreign fish/shrimp is raised however they want, and that often includes human waste and garbage. Only a small percentage is ever...

    Those would have to be VERY old pre-1976 Rugers to have large cylinder throats. Ruger .45 cylinder throats have been consistently tight .450-.451" for the last FIFTY years!!!!

    The guns are made in Turkey and follow the design of the Beretta folder. Should make a great platform to build a light walking gun in. .327 Fed. Or .357 with extra shotgun barrel.

    The 8.15x46R works best with 1:25 or 1:30 tin-lead alloy at velocities from 1100-1300 fps like the .32-40. Lee Liquid Alox works fine with 180-grain bullet and 13.5 grs. of 4227, 18 grs. of IMR4198 or 23 grs. RL7 powder, or pan lube with Emmert's or...

    A whole lot of that going on in business. Buy with debt financing, re-finance at lower rate once company is purchased using company assets as collateral. Bleed profits as "return" to investors. Then break up and sell the assets for a quick buck...

    And, as I am sure that you already know, but I will repeat for the benefit of others reading this, keep the Ballard loads light, in the order of those suitable for a non-heat-treated S&W 1905 Hand Ejector made before 1918, not to exceed about 1200...

    I no longer shoot .45-70, as I can no longer tolerate the recoil and consider the cartridge too hungry of powder and lead. The great majority of my shooting today is with .32-20, .38 Special, .44-40, .44 Magnum and .45 Colt in both rifles and...

    Willing to entertain offers sent via PM. Some nice head stamps in popular calibers not selling, I have to assume it might be price. Or could just be timing but if it is a price issue PM me with an offer. Worst I can say is no or a counter offer.

    I don't know how durable the CA revolvers are when shot alot with +P loads. Most gunsmiths I know DO NOT work on them because a used CA isn't worth much in the resale market and it is poor economy to put more time and effort into an inexpensive gun...

    I have had decent results with Lyman #2 alloy, copper gas check and powder coating (shake-n-bake) 70 grain NOE .225 cast with 24.5 grains of Varget, CCI small rifle primer. Fired from a Ruger Mini-14 with 1:7 twist. No idea of the velocity but...

    Shipped what's been bought so far. Want to sell the rest so added small pewter ingot to the main items. More stuff for same money! Gun show coming up so I'll probably close this and take it there to sell whatever isn't sold by this weekend.

    The dreaded internal lock—a.k.a. Hillary Hole—began in 2002 with the 66-6, the Model 66-7 featured a two-piece barrel and more internal lock mechanisms. Smith & Wesson dropped the Model 66 from production in 2005. You might ask them if they...

    Is gun blued or stainless? S6 doesn't ring any bells, they made a 66, 586, 486, the -7 is a change number, the A20 probably a rack number, is there a more full serial number, probably with a letter prefix, pictures would help. You might be able...

    small bit of aluminum foil or fine steel wool as a thread locker is the simple solution. Drill and tap a locking set screw is the better one, a lot of molds come with an allen head set screw as a standard feature. Lube will help. It is the plate...
