    I luv those old weavers even though its a **** shoot on wether they will hold true or move around. I spent alot of ammo until I finally admitted they were shot even though they look clear. I thought I would get a bunch of these old weavers redone...

    What got me thinking about this , I saw a sale on 9mm x 12 inch twist barrels for sale cheap. That got me thinking that enough to stabilize heavier cast than normal jacketed bullets. I was not aware of the blow backdesign on 9 mm's. If someone is...

    I hope this is the right place to post this question. Would it be ok to take one of these 9mm barrels in place of a 7.62x39 barrel and do the 9mmx39 thing? That is really close enough to the LORD'S perfect .358 diameter for me.

    I appreciate your input as I was hoping to give another viable option to those wanting a machine but funds are tight. The part of this machine that I liked was all the R8 collets that come with it. You really only need to buy specific tool bit for...

    No, I am trying to educate myself what barrel I have that would also give the legit 8.15x46 name and what molds do I have that fit in that caliber. I was at first thinking this cartridge is close to .300 and would also give me reason to get 7.?...

    That is a very inspirational thread but I still don't get the smaller diam. I know I am slow with this metric thing but I'm a trying! Reading of these guns sure puts the wants in me to have one. Rather than using the H&R single shot I think a...

    Math was never my strong point in life but some of this metric stuff is confusing to me an ignorant old man! A 8mm mauser bore is .3106. Ok I get that. Now a 8.15x46 is bore .2992! I assumed this 8.15 would be the 8mm of .3106 plus 15. But according...

    Who would have a barrel close to the dimensions of that one? Any other advice from the sages, I am all ears.

    wow, what a treasure to have and the historic accounts of that time period! I was recently back to PA and brought a nice walnut plank long enough for two long guns. The one gun stock is accounted for but the other I was not sure what to make of it....

    I totally agree with this for the p14. I would rather shoot and reprime, powder, and then insert boolit by hand and crimp. I have lost count of the loadings I get by doing it this way and same brass. Also that p14 is possibly a total piece of junk...

    yup, thats what we got except it is a flintlock. It is old and I want to do the right thing for it. The lock has a safety in it. Safe minded pistoleer in the days gone by.

    surprise, surprise, surprise! The only pistol I could find and see close up is a US model 1836 and it appears the part I need might be a bolt and screw. Boy, would that be an embarrassing fix if I am correct. This thing is to keep the ramrod with...

    yup, on a gun! I looked and searched (the gunsmith of grenville) and all has been vain. Its the linkage on a blackpowder pistol that is attached to a ball that slides on the shaft of the ram rod. It is missing the pin at the barrel.

    I have a pin that needs peened on both ends as they are exposed. Would love to give them that old time forged look. I can get the one end decent as it is in a bench vise but how do we get the pin after installation get the same peened look as the...

    I would prefer a 357max but I was under the assumption there was a case length which excluded the 357 maxi. The gun is a carcano that I bubbasized beyond reality but it sure is a nice and lite gun. 6 pounds empty!
