    Kind of a Thursday morning bump on this -- in hopes (please?) someone may look in their stores, and come across a surplus set of handles... Thank you, and BEST! geo

    Quite a few years back, in my locale .45acp brass was in short supply, but a shooting buddy heard "through the grapevine" of a large quantity, available in lots of 2,000 cases, which was guaranteed once-fired, at a reallllly low price. Having...

    One of the handiest I have is a $16.00 Harbor Freight drill press vise! My initial thought was the needed "tool aid" in taking apart M1 Garand trigger housing groups. Additionally, it has become my 1st grab for so many countless other firearm...

    I have, to put it mildly, a lame right leg -- a relatively new phenomena (past two years getting progressively lamer from a 1970 motorcycle crash where thin stainless steel wires on a Delrin plate were used to replace my knee cap; the wires started...

    Seeing this group buy on top, I elected to see what I had ordered, noting I was remiss in stating preferred cavity size. As my plan will be to cast, load, and shoot in .44 S&W Special revolvers, I believe 0.430" may be best? If so, kindly amend my...

    If it were me, I'd first try a local Craigslist or "Penysaver" type local newspaper. Pyramid now sells your air rifle for $149.99, including a 'scope. If you spend but one penny more, it ships free, too. To me, a real problem is when you add...

    Sparky45 -- The Air Arms refurb I bought from Pyramid was $60.00 less than one new; as mentioned the seller suggested I pay an extra ten dollars for their putting the rifle through its paces, including a test-firing with an attached chronograph tape...

    Best wishes re your Migraines getting abated! Two friends share similar, and -- seeing them -- I can but imagine your distress. I am ever so happy you had success with your 'smith! I recently took a Beretta to a 'smith -- it's fault being it...

    My thoughts focus on the gas pressure built up from the initial "push" to get your bullet started down its path along barrel -- past the hole to direct gas pressure down to move piston to move op rod to work the action. Imho, the M1 Garand is a...

    I offer an "A+++" on Pyramid Air refurb! Perhaps (for once ;) ) I was lucky, but when I wanted a PCP -- to see they commanded more $$$ than I really had to expend -- I found an Air Arms refurb on their site which was still ridiculously (imho)...

    I had experience of having a muzzle brake on an M1 being a "lead collector". Suggested to me was a perfectly machined barrel gauge to insure 99.9999% alignment. I spent the big bucks and purchased, then used one -- and much to my happiness the...

    Divedigger -- my guess re different H&I (size and lube) die sizes would be quite the huge number -- pretty much all sizes, in one-thousandth inch steps, from the smallest, to the largest bore-diameter bullet they make! Additionally, custom...

    Thank you sagamore-one! To be OCD, I took a picture of the mould with a set of calipers inserted, and I get a reading of ~0.2700", + or - 0.0010". Most sadly yours may be too thick for me. However, I'm hoping -- thanks again to you -- someone...

    Title says it all :) -- I'm in want of a set of handles for a four cavity Hensley & Gibbs mould. I have a RCBS handle set which would work if it was just a tad thinner -- but, I'd druther get one which was made for the mould than spend waaaay too...

    I have an old (1918 manufacture) Winchester 1892 in .25-20, and frankly have it more as a wall-hanger (oxymoron: it lives in safe) than anything else, it having belonged to my great-uncle. Endeavoring to shoot it, I came across a dedicated...

    I've several times done what Mitch posted. I put some water with a cap-full of Dawn in a small galvanized trash can (one I use for wood-stove ash removal) atop my lp gas "smelting" burner, and wait until water comes to a boil. Having removed lub...

    Congratulations!!! Looks like you have a firearm which will be a delight to shoot. I belong to a club with a hi-power league, and quite a collection of M1s. Each and every one has had the op rod spring replaced, and the best-of-the-best are those...
