    I don't know if someone actually ran a tap inthe chamber. That was just the best description I could come up with for the damage.

    Maybe, no telling at this point. I have seen people do really dumb things with firearms. I was a little surprised at how hard I had to hit it with a cleaning rod to get it out. Nothing a re-line won't fix. Just wish my lathe was big enough to do...

    Its stamped .22 short, long or long rifle. It bulges the case out right in the middle of the case at the top like there is missing chamber. And the chamber looks like it had a tap run into it with "threads" that you can feel and see. She just...

    I think it would have to be bushed then reamed and at that point I might as well just get it re-lined. It is so tore up and pitted that, to me, it's not worth keeping it in its original state. I would rather clean it up, make it a shooter and...

    So I loaded three Aguila subsonic into it for a little three shot group to see how it runs. I had previously cycled blanks through it to check the function. The first shot went a little high and right at 25 yards, no biggie, just looking for a...

    I repaired a guys stock on his Beretta 1200 for him and cleaned up a Colt SAA from the late 1800's to see what kind of repairs it needed. He had this 1906 made in 1910 that he brought to me. Obviously there is no finish left whatsoever. There is...

    Very cool!! I was going to buy one from a friend in .32 long that he had found in his Grandma's attic 50 years ago and had never shot. The last patent date was Sept 9 1873. I made a case out of aluminum on my lathe and shot it a few times. It...
