    Texas by God started a thread Neat little gun in Leverguns
    Yesterday I was in Academy and I asked to handle a new Marlin 336 Compact. It looked well built on the outside with very good wood to metal fit, and the steel and stocks were well finished also. This appears to be the new version of the 336Y...

    Here in Texas I could get by just fine with a 6.5 Creedmor as my only centerfire rifle. Thank God and the 2nd Amendment I don't have to!!

    I'm playing musical scopes on a couple of rifles. I put a cool old long steel 6x32mm K6 on my Mauser 30-30, a K4/ post on my Marlin 36G 30-30. I know the K4 is good but I'll have to out wait the 200% chance of rain today to test the K6. I'd like the...

    Thanks M-tecs- that is what I was referring to. We can't take an old Mauser and convert it to an inexpensive hunting or silhouette handgun. If an action is MANUFACTURED as a pistol it is legal. That is why the XP-100 was introduced BEFORE the m600...

    Just a heads up ...Be careful... if you decide to add a hotplate to your casting setup. Because a 16 gauge extension cord is a bit light to run both (Lee pot and a 1000+ watt hot plate), actually a 14 gauge is probably a bit light as well. My hot...

    Been using cast 240 SWC/SWCHP bullets in sabots just over 25 years for plinking and hunting in a hawkins. For the inlines I'll use cast for plinking, but generally use a jacketed bullet for hunting. It's much cheaper to buy sabots and a box of...

    Young, dumb and bulletproof; we threw .22 LR and shotgun shells in the campfire to liven things up. Once a .270 was tossed in and THAT was exiting when the brass rocket launched and hit a pickup close by. It didn't even scratch the paint, though. ...

    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    Here's the tool, it basically the center pin locates the outer ring which peens a ring around the bushing. The bushing should be a fairly tight fit to begin with which that one doesn't look to be. It almost looks like they used the tool, but...

    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    That looks terrible. They make a tool to stake a revolver firing pin bushing in place. You'd think someone who's calling themselves a gunsmith would have one or at least take the time to correctly fit the bushing and stake it without looking like...

    From when I first shot a .45 Browning BDA I was in love with the P220. True they will eat it all out of the box. My last P220 had the DAK trigger which I did not like. My Ruger P97 .45 fills the role with less panache but the same accuracy nowadays....

    I'd love to have the old 7BR XP-100 I once had but never fired. I would kill deer with it. Trouble is, they are too expensive for me. Too bad building your own is verboten.

    I don't recall exactly what OAL my Ruger 9e prefers when I use with the Lee 358-125-RF, but I do recall it wasn't at the crimp groove. Just assemble a some dummy rounds with various OAL and then do a plunk test with your gun, to find your OAL. ...

    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!
