    I don't see what the misunderstanding is here. Red Dots are the most common optic out there now and pretty much all US Military Units use them on Rifles. I have a Fast Fire 3 on my Glock 35 and it is mounted to the rear sight dovetail, not...

    If you tell them you are reporting a missing gun to BATF, they tend to find them very quickly.

    Part 1 & 2. A fun shoot, although a bit cold. We did have a truck drive off the side of the narrow bridge to the site, that took some team effort to get back on the road again! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSkduzzpqiY ...

    Any extra hardness gained by quenching the ingots will be lost when they are re-melted for casting. As long as you remember or note the alloy nothing is changed. Quenching could cause water inclusion in the shrinking ingots that might cause...

    Thanks for the info, but I ordered several stems as replacements many years ago. At the (then) price I couldn't justify repairs. I did find that grinding a taper to the stem allowed easier use in small necks like 223.

    Get rid of the BB, and go to moose milk. If concerned about leaving it loaded for a long period, soak the patches in moose milk, then let dry. BB causes terrible fouling in most conditions, and is totally unworkable in cold weather shooting.

    Jim: Your grip sounds like a serious problem. If you are not having the web of your hand all the way up under beavertail of the gun you need to start. This is important to insure you are gripping the gun the same way every time. Also your...

    This is the way to mount a scope on a #4 Mk1 It is the easiest way and you can go back if you want to. Either S&K or ATI will do the same thing. Randy

    At .80/lb, any good lead, especially already in ingot form, is a real bargain. Especially if the scrapper will scan it and give you a read out.
