    I've got somewhere around 50. I do have some safe queens NIB S&Ws. I only shoot 6" adj sight guns if I pick up others NIB or used I don't shoot them. Don't shoot Nickle or SS models either.

    Drm50 replied to a thread Unfired Rifles in Factory Rifles
    I don't have any unfired rifles. I've not bought any brand new rifles for years. I fact I've bought very few new rifles in my life. I never was into new rifles that much and everything I was interested in was obsolete even as a kid. Handguns are a...

    New saw blades are not good knife stock. The blade is nothing but a tooth holder. The bales with teeth cut into blade are tempered just along cutting edge. Power hacksaw blades are only hard along the cutting edge too. You can see temper line when...

    You might be. I can't eat garlic or anything in Onion family. Light dose stomach pain to heavy dose hives. Makes eating out a PIA. It's hard to detect small amounts in foods with other spices.

    Probably just a extractor job. I have several Martinis and I bought a couple that were rebarreled but owners never got around to having extractors fitted. With 218 you may luck out if gun is a 310 cadet.

    I had one back in 80s and never shot it because it was broke and missing parts. I did get 3 boxes of Win 38acp with it which I still have. Ammo looks to be from 1960s. I sold gun to a guy that wanted it for parts. I'm sure 3 boxes of ammo is worth...

    I had M1a and HK. Both good rifles and I like the M1a better, because I had experience with M14. The HK did shoot a tad better with GI ball. I didn't like the brass being fluted in HK chamber. The M1a can be loaded for to improve accuracy without...

    Most useful? The 22 LR by far. It also has the soothing affect of not having to worry about brass.

    I have a Lyman sight off a 74 Win. I think maybe a #55? It's a small sight with thumb lever on elevation. I think this model was a universal sight for a lot of 22s with tubular recievers of the day. I sold a H&R bolt action with same sight.
