    It's definitely a slick tool, and one of those things that make me wonder why I didn't think of it years ago. I don't think that collet is gonna slip off any cartridge very easily. I looks like it has a ridge to slip into the extractor groove.

    roadie replied to a thread Slingshots? in AirGuns
    I spent most of last night watching videos on shooting slingshots, and there are some guys who really know their stuff. Consistently hitting small targets from 25 yards. It seems the current way of accurately shooting is holding it sideways and...

    A rust blue will be better for your situation......but everything must be clean, or the results will be the same. That means a boiling cleaner, followed by a hot rinse in clean water. All oil and contaminants have to be completely removed. Though...

    roadie replied to a thread Slingshots? in AirGuns
    I find slingshots very interesting, played with them as a kid, but never really kept it up. What is the best, most accurate way to hold a slingshot? Without taking a chunk out of your hand while shooting it? I was tagged a couple of times, never...

    I found that if the part is not completely clean and free of oil, a cold blue will be blotchy. I clean with a hot detergent solution and rinse well. For a small, solid part, a scrubbing with lacquer thinners works to get oil off, but it should then...

    I've blued a lot of guns with the hot blue method, never did I have a problem with cleanup when the guns were properly boiled after the cold rinse. If you don't boil them, then yes, for sure you'll have salts leaching out of crevices forever....

    You can attach a receiver sight without drilling and tapping, I've been doing it for years. I used the rubber adhesive that came with Poly Choke ribs for a lot of sights, even did a front sight ramp on a 30-06. I have a 92 Winchester I attached a...

    I ran the 405 gr. in my 45-70 built on a Siamese Mauser, and with a 9 lb rifle and the stock built to fit me, that was a punisher off the bench. Then again, I just had to see what it take, turned out low end .458 Mag was easily doable.......just...

    As far as penetration, have you been able to recover any bullets? My thinking is a 350 gr. at that speed is going right through, same with heavier at lower speed. I could see a Texas Heart shot stopping at the front end, but a broadside not. I...

    I'm for sure not an engine guy, I've never had luck with carbs and vacuum, but I can see the possibility with this conversion of things not matching up as they need to. Going from four carbs down to one has to make a difference unless the volume is...

    I found a chuck roast was better eating than the high price cuts, but it has to be around 3 inch as you said.

    It seems to be a common enough thing to convert to a VW carb, as long as there's no loss of power doing it, I would think it would be a lot easier to maintain. Probably cheaper too if you have to pay someone to clean and sync four carbs. The...

    Maybe you could trade your buckets of wheel weights for ready to use ingots. Wouldn't be a straight across deal, but it would save you the hassle of smelting.

    Archeological finds are interpreted as to their meaning, the same way the bible is. In theory, there would be no problem in that, except for the human tendency to want to "correct" a long held belief, or in some cases, change that belief completely....

    If it were mine, I'd refinish it. But I'd use no wheels, only hand polishing to keep the edged and lettering sharp. The slide looks like it might be challenging to get all the pitting, but keep the lettering. I would also rust blue it, hot blue...

    Actually, there is every chance that you in fact, are misinterpreting the bible, and it wouldn't be surprising as the bible is interpreted differently by pretty much everyone. Nobody, including you, is an authority on the bible, an impossible task...

    This question really depends on what you believe. The discovery of alien life would do nothing to change the beliefs of those who follow the bible religiously, simply because the answer to everything is always the bible. Everything, everywhere, was...

    I think it'd be great fun to shoot, I wonder though how well the bolt seals.....could be a bit of gas heading backwards. I know I'd have a hammer on and find out what it can do with a bore that size. No cases to form, just roll up some paper...

    Run the cartridge up through the die opening and grab the bullet with side cutters or pliers. If it's too short, you may be able to reach in with pliers from above, just mind the threads.

    Are you sure it's a center fire? These guns were also chambered in .38 rimfire, you might want to check what the firing pin is lined up with.

    It may be the same as a 92 I have, it appears someone tried to drift the hanger out like a standard dovetail, and that didn't work. As far as fixing, I haven't tried yet, but I'm hoping some judicious peening may be enough to put some metal back...

    roadie replied to a thread What is it? in Muzzleloading.
    It looks kinda like a Green, late 1870/80's. The patent shows it as having a hammer under the bolt. Actually, no, it looks like it has a drum near the front of the receiver, so that rules out the Green. I've seen one that has the bolt and a...
