    rking22 is right about the Winchester 67 or 67A for young ones around 9 or 10. A friend gave me a 67A that didn't work, and I liked it so much I picked up a 1930's 67 Youth model in good condition for around $50.00. Both rifles will be going...

    OK, this is weird. Got back out with another 40 test rounds, half Bator, half HM2, all wheel weight bullets powder coated by yours truly. So, when loading the Bators, again I had REALLY bad run out on half of them, bullets obviously leaning over....

    I have found several .22 single shots at Pawn Shops or the LGS for very reasonable prices recently that I bought to test out the .22 RF reloads I was tinkering with. Got a almost New Springfield 15 for less than $75.00 that is perfect for a kid....

    If you want something very light weight then look at the ChiarpaLittle Badger. I survival style Carbine that is kid sized. Not the traditional wood stock rifle Carbine, but there is enough there to teach a kid to shoot with. It comes with M1...

    That is a reasonable move. Like I said, I knew that I was putting in a Larger and Heavier barrel. But most stocks that I have bought for Mausers have been a # 2 or #3 Contour

    One time Armoredman found out that a .38 shot shell wont stop Jack with two shots at 15 feet. He grabbed my .38 and did not know it was loaded so the first two rounds were shot shells for our local Rattlesnakes when we were Dove hunting. The Jack...

    You asked about those parts kits with cut frames. They can be sold with no FFL as a Non Gun. But if you sold all the other parts individually you could make some money. Plus it is a cheaper way to buy parts that you intend on customizing or...

    Those are guns that I seek out, and many times people give them to me for Free because they do not work. If they have been modified, the collectors value is non existant. But they can be fixed and shot in one form or the other. Maybe not the same...

    If I could be the smart aleck, changing a trigger does nothing to improve accuracy, only improves your ability to achieve accuracy. The problem with saying good vs bad, is that it's so very subjective with regards to what you like. 1 vs. 2...

    You got some industrial solder. Plumbers used that back in the days before they banned lead from water plumbing. But it is still used in sheet metal work like roof flashings and Air Conditioning ductwork fabrication. But not much any more.

    A detailed cleaning of the BREN did reveal some light leading on the face of the gas piston. This might be from the high hardness of the Linotype boolits - next session will have all one type of lead only. The gas port itself was clean and clear.

    Thank you. The 62 grain boolit shows promise - the 55 gr Bator is the one that surprised me the most, but I have to deal with a heckufa time seating them. The standard 223 seating ste in my Lee dies don't like the Bator style boolit at all! Now...
