    swamp replied to a thread Jade Knife Scales ? in Our Town
    I would use epoxy on them. I think the screws would work as long as not too much pressure was on the scales themselves. Should be very fancy with the polished jade. Hopefully they will hold up to the checkering. Post some pics of them when you...

    The glass is good and view is clear and crisp. I have a soft spot in my head for the old Weavers. Good eye relief too. Just seem to feel more solidly built. swamp

    swamp started a thread Weaver scopes in Our Town
    I picked up a couple of Weaver K4 scopes today. One is a 60 B, the other 60 c. Both are steel El Paso. The C60 has the post crosshair I like. Both in great shape. Paid $105.00 for the pair. Wonder if I did well? swamp

    Red dots are pretty bulky for use on a concealed carry hand gun. Lasers: If you can point the gun well enough to put the laser on the target, you don't need the laser. The laser is a great training tool but not much of a sighting system in most...

    Your 71 Win 94 is hardly a collector item nor is it likely to ever become one. The action components, being stamped, do not lend to a smooth action or to great longevity. Unless you require a straight wall cartridge to meet fish and game laws, you...

    It's probably a tapered based for seating. That's an awfully long boolit for muzzle seating.

    Nice mould, and thanks for the pic! I will go with Mark and Bad Ass on this also, and probably has several applications for old M\L and early cartridge rounds. Nice find! Jeff

    I also learned, quite by accident, that a loose middle screw would give the most amazing 4 inch horizontal spread at 100 yards. After tightening, the gun went back to 1 inch or less groups.

    The 450 prefix was used for the .44 Cal. Black Powder pistol boolits, though Lyman was known to cross over numbers from Ideal and use the prefix for something else. The .451 Self Loading Rifle perhaps, but without a pic we will never know for sure.

    I don't see the indentation problem. What ever is there, I would not worry about it is the cartridges will feed and chamber with out problem. Seating depth can be tailored to the individual gun so don't worry about that either. Your shorter ammo...

    I would not worry about expansion with a .45; it starts out larger than many other calibers ever expand to. Also, it seems that the more of a scavenger an animal is, the more tenacious its' grasp on life.

    The trigger is much better than a Walther PP series pistol and I find it more comfortable to shoot. Considering one can buy a Bersa for less than half the price of the Walther and get accuracy and service all out of proportion to the cost, the...
