    I also have a 5" OP 32/20 circa 1931. Had a 1956 Marshal but a guy born the same year wanted it. I wouldn't worry about +p loads. The 358429 was very accurate if I pushed it fast enough. I hear they are tough to work on but that memo didn't...

    Waking up this old thread. May be picking up a new puppy soon. Won't be a replacement for Timber, but we are a family that cannot be without at least one furry cuddly member. The Mrs. wants more control over the dog food mixture. With a few rare...

    The worse part of this is there is no "coming back" from this fix. Those stakes are always going to be there.

    Olive oil spray works better than Pam. Pietta Remingtons have bigger grips than originals. Load on a stand so you take the pin out each time and wipe it down. And kind of off topic but this is why I maintain the 1895 Nagant revolver is the best...

    The 44 can be loaded down to comfortable levels or even 44 spl loads used. Another recoil reducing technique is to go to a lighter bullet instead of the240-270 grn most favor work up a light load using 180-200 grn bullets that fill a lot of the...

    This passage always reminds me that what we hear, and how we answer, aren't always completely congruent with each other. It also illustrates how one word can mean several things, or degrees of things. The "feed my sheep" part, I think, clearly...

    One way to look at this is How many parts are there in a given firearm? Every part has a tolerance on size hardness material composition of its own. every part is fitted into this machine to work with the other parts. While the same maunfaturer...

    In my big ladle pot ( 100lbs+) I use a mixture of wood and paraffin to flux. I did try the flux in a tin for soldering pipe joints and such, worked but not any better or wrse than the wood paraffin mix. I add the wood and a small ball of paraffin...

    DPMS, I carry a 4" N frame in an old Bianchi X2100. It is handy and instead of having 40+ ounces pulling your pants south acts as a suspender to keep them in place. I'd look at shoulder holsters.

    When I talked guns with geezers in the early 70s no one mentioned 32/20s. The prefered deer round in NC was a .22 rimfire out the kitchen window for both the fossilized and contemporary shooters. Out west it was much the same but no.22 for deer,...

    Normally sizing is recommended for up to around .002-.003 reductions. Your wanting .008-.009. This could possibly be done in push thru sizing dies in 2 passes. This much in one pass may not size down but shave down removing metals. I would recommend...

    Starting with the cold pot is good advice. Another trick is a steel pan big enough to sit on top of your pot to use to pre heat the bullets. Preheating the bullets to 250-300* in a separate container for 20 mins or so will also take care of any...

    For just the bezel repair you might check with a local jeweler. He might handle it quickly and reasonably. In reality accuracy is much more today than it was years ago. For years a caliper or mike that measured to the...
