    429421Cowboy replied to a thread Bullets in a fire in Our Town
    I have seen cases after a fire, and they generally are split open and jagged looking, with the bullet often still in place (maybe it has to do if the bullet was crimped or not?). I'd say that there is a small degree of eye danger, but doubt they'd...

    I have owned this book for quite awhile, and enjoy it for reading about how different things are now than they were then. An interesting side note being that I grew up not far from Lewistown, and have an uncle that gave me a good bit of his...

    I believe that is from the old Winchester Bi-centinnial commemorative ammo they sold, boxes go for pretty decent money now.

    I guess my comparison for the 9mm would be the .357 Mag. We all know that .357 is about the starting level for a "real" bear gun, and with the Buffalo Bore offerings (+P+) the 9 is elevated into .357 territory. I do know two gentlemen that have...

    Nifty deals, I have a couple laying around and am glad I dont have to use them now! Just read an article in Backwoodsman about a guy that made a cabbage knife out of one since they are pretty good steel.

    Also... can't see from your photos but the bolt on a trainer doesn't have front locking lugs, just two in the rear. You can't fit a rifle bolt into a trainer but you can fit a trainer into a rifle (BAD IDEA). The trainers often had a set screw ...

    I'm with Ken and Texas on this one, a whole isn't adding up on this rifle. The barrel shouldn't do that and it certainly should have the serial number on the left side, with a series mark in front of that and the arsenal mark on the other end as...

    What curator said. If you get it nice and shiny clean (easy enough with the chromed bores) you can look down it and see the rifling, but it'll look more like swirls in the light than real sharp cut rifling. Check the crown on it, may have to touch...

    I was not aware the level of difficulty involved in finding non-detachable sling swivels! I am working on a little rifle project, that I'll detail here at some point, but it is a sporterized mil-surp, cut down to carbine length with a dandy little...

    We also have a Generac unit at the ranch that is hooked into the natural gas line. It is likely close to 15 years old, and has given good service with only regular maintenance. We got the 22kw unit to have enough power to keep the freezers full of...

    Thank you all for the welcome back, I have truly missed every one of you and it is great to see familiar faces. It has been a rough and tumble few years, but we have hung tight. Katelyn is in a rough place with her health, but with God's grace we're...

    I'll have to dig up a picture and post it here but I found a .50 BMG casing laying in the desert near Rachel, Nevada just outside the current day bombing range at Nellis AFB that has the S L 4 headstamp and you can still see the marks where it was...
