    A good source for pricing and information for me, is http://oldguns.net/cat_fa_old_us_long.htm. They presently have one listed, and you may be able to compare features with yours. They also provide a fairly reasonably priced service where they'll...

    To my thought, it's not GunBroker -- just the person exploiting them -- as well as robbing from you. Some years back my older son sold a guitar on eBay, and buyer demanded his money back due to his claim of guitar being mis-represented. We...

    In my opinion these should be used with a Sabot as designed. You can do a search for MMP Sabots, there they have most of the info needed for the sabot size and projectile. This includes the projectile diameter for use in the proper sabot. Cast and...

    I always smile and breath a sigh of relief when "stuff" like this occurs. So happy you were 95% observant, and 5% lucky :). I always decap my brass before further processing, as wet pin tumbling seems to clean all the crud from primer pockets,...

    Growing up in Manhattan (NYC), back in the day just about every block on each avenue had a couple of saloons and a shooting gallery. Pretty much the firearm of choice in the galleries in my neighborhood (Yorktown) was the Remington Model 12c. ...

    With no disrespect to your assertion, I am a firm believer that ALL moulds react from whatever "treatment" they're subjected to by the owner. A Number 1 "no-no" I was severely instructed in was to NEVER dip any part of the mould into the pot, under...

    En route to a fishing trip a few years ago, I chanced upon a bareley-used-almost new CZ 455 Varmint at a Gander Mountain store, and it followed me out. I put a Weaver Rim-fire Classic 3-9x x 32 scope on it, and it is bar none, to me, the BEST .22...

    Local newspapers indicated Remington Arms is in debt over $950,000,000, and may be closing. With 850-950 employees, this would be devastating to the region -- for the employees, their families, and "support" businesses -- ranging from car dealers,...

    As mentions have been added re ammunition, I'm adding my two pennies: Many years of Bullseye shooting did in fact give credence to the Model 41's selective ammunition appetite. For me, I once purchased a brick of CCI Pistol Match .22 which was a...

    I concur 100% with pietro's suggestions! However, I find the smell from kerosene "follows" the gun for way too long, imho. I put a similarly cleaned pistol in my gun box, and a half-hour later when I opened it at range... WOW :(! A fellow...

    Ballistics in Scotland is correct. The Wilkinson boolit, produced by Moose Moulds for the .58 Cal 16 groove is very similar to those pictured. I cast the Wilkinson once or twice a year for a man who does several 1000 yard shoots with a similar...
