    All true , aren't you glad that we are old enough to appreciate it. If at 17 we knew what we know now it's not likely we would reach old age. Now we just don't care. Retired not long ago but really like it. Dave

    In post #9 I mentioned a K31 that was very accurate with issue ammo. The rifle had one quirk, when I fired cast loads the rifle shot 6-7 inches to the right. It did the same with lower powered jacketed loads but as power increased the poi moved back...

    The front sight is not threaded, it is a pin that is bigger at the bottom. You should be able to remove the sight and drive it out from the top. A larger one can be made from something like a finish nail. Just make it too high and file to suit. ...

    I looked at the Mauser page on the J&G site, the prices are unbelievable. Are these rifles really selling at this price ? A plain old used Enfield at $700 is unreal, not long ago one in the wrap didn't bring that much. I really suspect that they are...

    I like Enfields and have shot them a lot . They can be a bit fussy to bed properly and are generally not as accurate as a Mauser. The bore size can be all over the place. I have one with a 2 groove barrel that only does fair with cast, the 5 groove...

    My gunsmith said Marlin was having a lot of quality problems before they were sold out and it just got worse. I bought one in the early 2000's but looked it over before buying it. Even that can't catch all the problems, buying most any gun can be a...
