    The biodegradable packing peanuts are made from corn (I believe that is correct) and dissolve in water. Heck, you might even be able to flavor them and use as a snack! Lol!

    Now that you know how to disassemble the gun, clean, oil it and put it together. With a brass frame, you will want to keep your powder charges around 18 grains. Yeah, it will hold more powder, but it will also shoot loose quicker.

    I think once you rub in a few more coats of finish, the grain will start popping out and you won't mind the darker color.

    Titan Reloading has the 43 Mauser dies at just under $30.00. That's what I use.

    Several years ago a couple of friends (also machinists) made bowling ball mortars. They had an eyebolt tapped into the balls with a length of brightly colored ribbon tied into them. When I asked if that was to see them in flight, they replied that...

    Is the breech end threaded for a drum? I would use a small brass rod (brazing rod!) and pick away at whatever is in the barrel. Could even be a ball. If that won't work, remove the barrel and unbreech it ( after the arm is healed!). Be sure to put...
