    I will eat nearly anything except organ meats. As to the comment about testicals, Calf fries (rocky mountain oysters) aren't bad at all actually pretty good. That's about the only organ meat I'll knowingly eat l, I've only had beef though. I...

    I believe I have found the issue on mine, there is a west lip on the bolt where the dovetailed portion of the extractor fits in the bolt. When slid all the way back it holds tight. But push forward as if on the extraction stroke and it looses the...

    Of my lever guns the 45 colt is what I have the most ammunition loaded for and wheel guns to match it. Even though it will likely obliterate small game I'm of the use what you brought and or have group, if it came down to keeping just one.

    It seems it will grip R P 270 head stamps. It will not grip hornady or R P 35 whelen head stamp though.

    The extractor currently in it is unaltered brand new. The only modification done to the original was relieving the bottom edge of the extractor. I imagine this was done to help feed cartridges at one point in time from the right side of magazine.

    Check dimensions in 8!mm Mauser vs 7.65 argentine. Argentine extractor rim groove appears to be .3 mm thinner than 8mm Argentine case head appears to be .1 mm narrower Argentine Extractor groove width appears to be .1 mm wider. The groove...

    is the anchor stamp marking an argentine extractor? Guessing the tip is shorter on argentine vs standard? It is now chambered in 35 whelen but it does not hold any 30- family cartridge

    #5 I believe may be the problem I was not aware of variation in extractor types. The one I replaced it with has what appears to be an anchor stamped at the tail end of it. Any idea what this would have been made for? It seems that as soon as the...

    Mauser action is dropping round out during ejection. As soon as the round is clear of the ring it drops back down into of magazine instead of holding until it reaches the ejector. I have replaced the extractor and it still does the same thing. Does...

    The stock pad and comb height has been a dilemma for me. I'm a short feller. I actually like the ruger compact magnum .308 I picked up this year for that reason. It was designed on open sights. And has a short factory length of pull. My grand father...
