    I have had a Gen 1 since the late 80's, box and everything. I'm just not sure witch mags are the original and I did buy a couple of extra at the time. Is there anyway to date the mags, I think there have been some changes but I don't know what. I...

    beemer replied to a thread 38-55 brass in Single Shot Guns
    Thanks for all the replies ! I have had my grubby hands on the rifle, he bought it used but in beautiful shape with a set of marbles tang sights. I will measure the chamber and see where to go from there. Thanks Dave

    beemer started a thread 38-55 brass in Single Shot Guns
    I have a shooting buddy that bought a Uberti High Wall 38-55, I have tinkered with a lot of calibers but this is a new one for me. While looking at Starline brass I saw the short brass at 2.082 and the long at 2.125. Being that the max length is...

    How does Cerakote hold up under holster wear, especially the sharp edges ? That is a nice looking handgun but I am partial the Ruger Six Series anyway. I noticed you took off the rubber grips. I have rubber grips for mine but seem to always go...

    I load 410 ga. shells with close to the same load as used in a 357 mag shot cup. You wouldn't believe the difference, yes the rifling messes up the pattern. I read an article years ago about a guy that would ream the rifling out of a 45 Colt. He...

    Might also be good for lining vice jaws for holding small parts. Could be use useful stuff, I would only melt down as a last resort.

    I bought a Norwegian target barrel several years ago and put it on a sporterized Argentine 1909 I was given. It was parkerized green and had a step turned down at the muzzle and I think 26-27 inches long. I think it has a chrome plated bore . It is...

    That was fast, Thanks. I'll throw it in my collection box. Speaking of collections I picked up a few rounds at the flea market today. Bought a 401 Win SL, 38 Long Rimfire and a 22 WCF. It started in '67, a neat old guy gave me a couple shells in 22...

    I was sorting out a batch of 38 Special cases and found an odd one. It is a Peters case with a large primer. Seems I have heard of that but can't remember the when the change was made to small primers. Anyone have any idea ? Thanks Dave

    Patina or rust, just depends what side of the table you're on.

    I have 12's and .410's, nothing in between and at this point probably will not. Looking back on what I have used a shotgun for I would have been served very well with a 20 ga. shotgun or three. That is from a practical point of view. This ceased...

    It's hard to find a H & R for that price around here. I keep a H & R .410 behind the door, it's fitted with a sling and an ammo sleeve on the stock. It's one of the best pesky critter getters I have. Reloading can be a pain and probably really...

    I started a thread recently about the Lee Ergo Prime so I have been watching this one, talk about skinning a cat. I haven't decided what I want yet but nothing is an option. I very seldom load large batches, 5-6 boxes of 38 Spcl is a big run. The...

    I have also loaded a few ultra light loads, hulls with worn out crimps are cut to 2 inches. The load is similar to what is used in a 38 shot shell, 4 grs. of Unique and 45 grs. of #9 shot. I made these for close to the house or out building, haven't...

    I keep a H&R .410 behind the back door, it's one of the most useful and most used pest guns I have. As far as shot size 7.5 is probably best all around due to higher shot count but don't count larger shot out. If I had #5 I load it and learn its...

    beemer replied to a thread surplus grading in Military Rifles
    The best one in the pile is still the best one even if it is a piece of junk, sort of graded on the curve. Most of the good ones come from somebody's collection and the price reflects that. As far as the importers are concerned I think that except...
