    Suggestions above sound great. Just FYI for ease of linseed oil: you wipe a film on, as much as the wood will take, but not any extra. Leave it overnight. repeat again and again for two weeks to build up the finish. That's why it's easy (you can't...

    No not there. Seat to middle of front driving band. Do a plunk test, if it doesn't pass, seat to just a smidge below the leading edge of the front driving band. If it doesn't pass the plunk test ? I don't know what to tell ya.

    You must have seen the exact same thread on SA that I did, because I bought some blanks too! Took me some time to get around to it, but mine also wound up on a vaquero. I came to the same conclusions you did: soft material, easy to work with. Way...

    If take the bbl/slide assembly off a P38 and stick a loaded mag into it you will see that the bullet has a almost straight line feed path. Copied into the Beretta 92 and Desert Eagle. The Truncated Cone was designed for the P-08 Luger. In WW1...

    I've shot the H&G 200gr in just about everything. It will feed in an Old Sig 220 that I have and even My Glock 21 with a Wolf aftermarket bbl. The 230gr RN at Factory Level Loads works in everything. For Powder Puff Loads I like the...

    Club shooting is fun. You meet some good people & learn a lot from many of them, just like every thing else. I wish we had one around were I live. Fly

    If you're shooting from the bench, you will really appreciate a folded towel or strap-on recoil pad. Try it before you FEEL the need.

    I've had My 1895CB for 20+yrs and My 1895S Pre-Safety for about 40yrs. I bought the Lyman #457193 just for The 1895S. It shoots just as well in the 1895CB. And it Feeds without any problems AT all in either Rifle. Never had a problem with...

I like to learn new things EVERYDAY. Just kind of a "hi-tech country boy" who wants to be remembered as someone who "lead" an interesting life. I want to be the inventor of the first "deer-shucker", remote controlled ammo and a twin that could pass as me and go to my job!
