    Lee Enfield 3D Printed Extended 15 Round Magazine. I was sure that my last iteration of this Extended Magazine print would work; especially since I integrated those two friction reducing vertical grooves on the rear inside wall but he freaken...

    This Lee Enfield Extended 15 round magazine project is kicking my butt. I printed out the magazine body that I uploaded those previous computer renderings of; the ones with the integral internal tracks inside on the rear wall of the magazine...

    I visited the NOE website earlier today hoping to find some update information of any progress on how close they are to making the lighter weight .22 caliber pellet molds. Maybe I looked right at the information I was looking for and just didn't...

    Here's a few more explanatory pics of the problems I've encountered and the tweaks I've made to my models in order to counter those problems. It looks like they'll work but, that's what I said last time. With any luck I'll be able to print them...

    HollowPoint replied to a thread Gamo Maxim in AirGuns
    Go to YouTube and do a search of your criteria. I'm sure someone there has dealt with a similar problem who has posted a video of how they went about finding a remedy. Type in something like, Airgun Scope Drifting back under recoil or something...

    In an effort to try to make my last post a little more clear I thought I'd post a couple of pics to do just that. One of those pics is of the three different iterations of the followers I've been tweaking. The prints themselves are some of the...

    I see what's happening now. I can see where the hang up in this magazine's overall design geometry is. My newly made magazine spring turned out pretty good. It worked just as I'd hoped it would but, the two geometry changes I've made to my...

    You can buy various parts for you Red Rider on Ebay without having to buy a whole new bb gun. Their not that expensive so if worse came to worse you could buy the cheapest one offered and just use it for parts. I found that the old school Red...

    Well, I got that roll of transparent ABS filament finally. What a piece of krapp roll of filament this is turning out to be. In my attempt to figure out the correct print recipe for it I've gone though twelve failed prints thus far. The first...

    Your comments and the comments on the video are generally true but not true across the board. The video in question showcases a .177 caliber shooting ultra high velocities with very light weight pellets. My .22 caliber PCP shoots the 14 grainers...

Biography:
I joined as a semi-newbie. Now I've been here long enough to consider myself knowledgeable about bullet casting.

With the help of some of the more experienced bullet casters on this site, I've developed some tools and bullets for my own personal use. Among them are a Soft-Pointing tool, Boat-Tailed Gas Checks and dies, Air Gun Pellet Swager, Match-Grade Air gun Trigger, K31 scope mounts and a few other things I've posted about.

The learning never ends and the ideas keep coming. Unfortunately for me, there isn't enough time in the day to tackle them all.
