    I recently came into a very nice 1871 Mauser, NOT a 71/84. It is in very nice shape with one caveat that is a biggie! I don't have a bolt. I am hoping someone here either has an extra or knows where one is available. Even bolt parts would help....

    I will post this in the Wanted to Buy Section shortly, but because fellas seem to skip over some posts there, I am asking for some help here, too. I recently came into a very nice 1871 Mauser, NOT a 71/84. It is in very nice shape with one caveat...

    RU Shooter, I used the white Oaks varmint forearm tube. Aluminum in black. The NM forearm might actually make for a better hunting rifle. One thing I've noticed is in the winter that aluminum tube draws the heat right out of your hand. My son in...

    Usually get what you pay for with those sights. I bought an Olympic carry handle a few years back. Then learned there is a civilian version and a military. Civilian is I think an older setup pre dating military use of flat tops receivers. So...

    Actually the Douglas F-15 line has been shut down for a few years now. They were going to build a few F-18's this year but the budget left out funds.

    Well the Navy A-6 had almost zero air to air ability. It was a bomber. So that is not the point. A-6 could carry two atomic bombs from a carrier in the Med to anywhere in Russia one way. Three times the range of our cruise missiles that did not...

    My idea on high velocity in my 30-06 rifle is simple and not world changing. I am looking to just get close to the original 03 ballistics of the pre 06 military round. The 03 used a 220 grain jacketed bullet at 2,300 fps. I'd like to see 2,200 fps...

    I've not seen an M1 genuine real carbine in a gun shop since the 1970's. IMHO only the junk ones get sold off.

    Just something to think about. What do you suppose the survivability of an A-10 would be flying attack runs over the North Korean Peninsula? Then ask yourself. As much fun as it would be to fly an A-10/ Would you rather be sitting in the A-10...

    Way I read Sgt.Mike's post. Was the aluminum checks were failing at a lower velocity than copper. Which also fails at some speed.

    With a cap and ball revolver you have nothing else to buy. No load dies or brass. Just a twenty dollar Lee mold.

    Last one I built I used a 20" Hybrid contour Criterion barrel. Purchased through Brownell's. Has a tapered profile under the handguard to make it stiffer than a government profile but lighter than a match barrel. It's stiff enough under the hand...

    I've a couple ways to do things with AR's. One is keep my nice ammo in 100 round plastic hinge top boxes. I have a matched set of five 20 round magazines. So I load 100 rounds out of a box into magazines ahead of going shooting. Then after return...
