    georgerkahn replied to a thread Knife Blade ?? in Our Town
    At a recent gun show, a seller has some (msrp $35.00) Kershaw knives for twenty dollars, and this has replaced my Buck, and before that Case, as my everyday carry (EDC) knife! Three features I've come to love are: An easily moved flip lever on it...

    (Just to be OCD, I was not aware the buy was closed, and surely appreciate DukeInFlorida and Mihec for still allowing me the purchase of a box of five handles! I PM'd a reply to DukeInFlorida earlier today, but -- again to be OCD ;) - wish to...

    Your induction machine looks awesome! I do, however, have a question (or two)... To my thought, the whole process of annealing is as close to rocket science as I may get. To wit, the brass at case neck needs to have its molecular structure...

    Thank you -- my mould of choice has been the SAECO 441-240 -- a .44 Rem Mag SWC “Keith” style 2-cavity 240 grain mould, which functions well in my Henry and Uberti long guns as well as handgun in this caliber. I may very well look into the 240-AG...

    I use several annealing methods, and with all am most fearful of getting the case-bottom annealed. I'm a user of Templaq -- the temperature I employ is 450*F, so if the brass temp reached 450* you are advised by its melting. My "main" annealer is...

    2152hq -- thanks for your thoughts! My "research" parallels yours re which mags fit what pistols. One purveyor down south responded, perhaps best, to my inquiry if those listed on his web site would fit my pistol with, "yes and no -- most probably...

    "Oh yeah, it cycles cast RFP and SWC'S flawlessly. It will definetly be a cast gun for me." I, too, have one of these in my stable. Might you provide the MOULDS you cast your working cast bullets from? Thanks! geo

    On the too-short mags, I believe the base may be removable. There is a centre-pin which may (???) be depressed to slide it open. Haven't tried.

    I have a Beretta Model 418, marked 1939, serial number 623xxx, in “CAL 6.33” (25acp). I need a magazine for this pistol, and the reason I am writing is several which are listed to fit, are just a tad too short. Mags do fit the well, but their top...
