    I have two MKI Ts with the 6.5"barrels and one MKI T with the 5.5 bull barrel. All three shoot well with most bulk 22 ammo but shoot very well with ammo they like. I gave my MKII like yours to my son. It also shoots well. I have never seen a MK...

    I’m sorry to hear of his passing. Met him at Perry when he did his 1911 gunsmithing classes. Highlight was when he let me shoot the Dragon Gun on the practice range. I still have the Tee shirt that had his pic on it for the class. He will be...

    In the last couple of years I have bought two 7.7 Jap rifles at the Gardner auction in Kalispell. Both have been sporterized with scope mounts and after market stocks. I checked the bores and both are about .316. Not having a mold in that size, I...

    My wife bought me a Rem 700 V in 1974 and I have been scrounging brass since then. I worked for Alaska Corrections for twenty years and we used Federal Gold Metal ammo in our Colt AR 15s and Rem ball ammo for training. I ended up with a couple of 5...

    If you want an opportunity to shoot "FULL AUTO" there are multiple locations in and around Las Vegas where this can be done. Anything from the MP5. Uzi style 9mm based up to M2 50 Cals depending on location.
