    Yup. I fail to see the allure of 300BO. Actually, easier to say what I like and/or want. Love my 30-30. It's versatile and fairly cheap to feed. Especially with cast lead & pistol powder. :) Want a .308 to fill the Big game and/or long range...

    I was going to say Star case feeder or something like that... it has some similarities to a Hulme case-feeder but not exactly. A star bullet feeder would be very interesting.

    My dad stopped over today. He said there was a front factory sight pinnned or screwed into the front taper hole on the barrel and it wasn’t cut down. I did google 1891 Argentine maulers and found some with with 23.6” barrels all original. He said...

    For self defense full moon clips are a big advantage for double action 45 ACP revolvers. In single actions they are basically equal.

    If the tires were just changed the tire tech probably broke one. If not corrosion build up from moisture build up from what ever air hose aired up the tire. Could be a bad sensor. Could have left the valve cover cap off and the valve and sensor...

    I figured it’s been cut as well but it’s weird that the front of the barrel has been turned down to accept something to slip over it that’s what confused me...it’s like it was that way from factory? If it has been cut down I won’t be wasting my...

    Well, I just dug through all my stuff and no rear sight. I figure it still could be in my dads stuff. He’s always fast to say no...and never look. I’ll have to check his bottom gun cabinet drawer that always has a little pile of who knows what.

    Thanks for your service. I worked B's, E's, H's and a couple of J's. They have came a long way since the A's. I don't have any 2 cavity Lees and I don't remember how they vent. Since it's mostly one cavity it could be a venting issue.
