    I went ahead and found one of those brass/copper things in the lino bucket and ground it to fit. The action is definitely solid now. Will try it in a few days to see if this reduces the 6-8" groups with any load that cycles the action. Only good...

    Just bought a new reproduction M1 carbine. Before I call Inland Mfg. I will ask here first. When pulling the trigger I would feel something moving besides the trigger. Turns out that if I grab the rear sight that I can jiggle the action in the...

    My 69 Roadrunner had alloy wheels that used stick on. Sold it for $600 when they were going to quit making premium gas. Should have put it up on blocks for 40 years, then sold it.
