    The first question is why are the screws soft? If they were manufactured that way chances are the carbon content is to low to heat treat. If that is the case the only option is case hardening with a product like Cherry Red. ...

    If you were closer I would trade your for some current match but it's not worth the hassle of shipping to me. If you do opt to shoot it I would like to work out a deal for the empty boxes for my man cave.

    Yes history matters to some of us. That is why I DO NOT use originals for things like SASS competition. Why take a piece of history wear it out? I have at least a dozen firearms manufactured between 1860 and 1920. I do my best to preserve them...

    And so what that it's a copy? Some copies are better than original, some are equal and some are inferior however they do the same thing. Short of collecting function is what matters. Your example of a wife verse a blow up doll would be valid if...

    PM sent on the #4 Hornady/Pacific DL 266 12 ga reloading press. Probably the best single stage press they ever made. I still use on old 266 in 410 and it loads really nice shells. The only thing missing is the primer tray/filler and I may have one...

    I used a piece of an H&R barrel that was used as a barrel stub, turned it down to .001 over the bored chamber diameter, cut it to length and epoxied it into the chamber. The barrel liner insert on one end, and a near identical piece was made for...

    I have already done a 25-20, now a 32-20, then a 327 Federal. All barrels will be barrel liners. This one is still being built, so the pictures may be a little slow coming. I changed barrels and set-up mid stream, after already taking a couple...

    I don't know if a factory base has ever been offered or not, but if you take your base to a machinist, they should be able to have it machined and mounted on your barrel is less than an hours time! A 2 piece base would be easier still.

    Bolt thrust should have zero impact on wear of any fixed breech firearm unless the design limits are exceeded. Normally this would be bolt lug setback or in the case of guns like the AR broken lugs or in the case of the 73 linkage compression. ...

    Bolt thrust is determined by the inside diameter of the case. That is what prevents us from rebating a .308 rim to .223 rim. In both cases the bolt thrust is the same, however, the PSI in the contact area will be greater with a smaller area.
