    I totally AGREE with here above posts, but will add that I had an old GECO .22 with symptoms similar to as-described by 10 Spot Terminator. Knowing any attempt to "improve" mechanically had more than a good chance (for me!) of failure, I first...

    I was "bright" using a slip on pad on a lever action -- do not recall make/model -- years back when I stored it in a dirt-floor barn -- to keep the butt dry. After a few years -- before a move -- I removed the rubber butt plate to see the entire...

    With THANKS again to you, dverna ;) -- the Crosman you cited -- was delivered yesterday. I ordered a FP Williams rear site from Airguns of Arizona which has already shipped... and, "I'm 'psyched'"! Mine came with just a hair less than 3,000psi in...

    Kind of subjective query here... my dad used to say that there are 147 different brands of beer in the shops solely because 147 different groups of people each maintained "their brand of choice" is indeed the best. That said, I have used -- and...

    The more I think on it -- the more I better like using water as you suggested rather than air. Seems to me if something goes wrong, operator might only get wet :). My vision would be to mount an aluminum rod -- milled to just fit into case size --...

    I'll respond by suggesting it can be done -- to my vision ;). Two things I might note, however. To wit, your sentence -- third from end -- asks for a pellet rifle you wish to purchase. Why not list a WTB in the S&S for one? Secondly, I have had...

    My Kubota tractor has an installed block heater. With yesterday's high temp of ~25*F, and the mercury dipping down to +11*F overnight -- this may be the time to plug it in. But... to gimp out in snow/ice to plug it in for an hour or two before...

    I have a 617 (6" barrel, target trigger) and a 41 -- a very early model. I never considered using the revolver for anything other than "revolver matches" in the competition arena! Admittedly a lousy shot, I once (only once, mind you!) got 9 of 10...

    dverna -Super congrats on the awesome $$$ deal you got!!! I'm sort of new to the air gun game, as you refer to it ;), as I have a S&W C02 pistol from the early 1970s and a couple of pump air rifles. In the recent past, and old leg injury has me...

    Chevroner -- you asked a good question vis "PCP" and I'll provide a real quick answer: Instead of a SPRING, or CARBON DIOXIDE sending your pellet on its path down your barrel, simple, plain-Jane air is employed. To get enough compressed air...

    I had driven to a fairly distant shop a couple-three years ago to view a SAA which (my luck :() was sold the afternoon before, so I had cash in my pocket and dealer had a display case holding many handguns. I inquired about a beat-up-looking .22...

    I have not used the product you mentioned, but did try/use a similar product -- with quite the disappointment. I tried a Teflon-based dry lub which worked awesomely until the mould was heated for a bit... then the lub properties turned to "braking"...

    What do they say about "like minds"? I have a few '06 Military surplus shooters, and for all (EXCEPT my Garand) I remember "30-31-32": I use an even 30 grains of 3031 which I size to 0.320". I reckon -- 'specially my 1917 -- the 0.320" is not even...

    A "plus" to above-posts and comments. One thing I might add is I had a much smaller pile from a leak years back, and it seemed there was no easy way to address it. I got the bright idea of using a grinder wheel on a Dremel to make "cuts" into the...

    Scrounge (and others) -- I bought my Honda 2000 primarily for portability and to take/use at camp. I bought it online about eight years ago from a place called "the Generator Shop" or something similar -- and I paid $899.00 for mine. A "plus" for...

    I was to offer a similar thought as presented by NSB! I have taken the cotton off a Q-tip and slipped it into the slot of a pull-thru (like nylon fishing line with a loop at end) air-rifle bore cleaner with it -- upon insertion -- to be a snug (no...

    My very first generator -- maybe 40 years back? -- was/is a McCulloch 2,000 watt unit. Primarily "just to use it" I plugged in a Lyman Mould Master pot, and not surprisingly the rpms of motor changed as the internal pot thermostat switch closed and...

    Thanks for headsup re tumbling! I have a few original .30 Remington clips which were pretty crudded, and G96 plus a brass cleaning brush only seemed to clean parts which needed little/no cleaning. Hence I got the bright idea of using my Hornady...
