    They make great stuff: so great that they have a hard time admitting when they make a mistake. 1. Pro Series .38 spec./.357 die set sent back to them 2 times. They finally (reluctantly) made the requested correction to the seating die. I solved the...

    Looks like there are none of these items for sale out there. Closing thread.

    I've passed on 3 (1 to son & 2 to grandchildren) & I have 5 on hand. All have/had walnut stocks (most straight grained without any figure). As stated earlier: my Mossberg 142-A & 152 (currently 5 total) have 18" bbls. & are great shooters. I...

    Remove the firing pin from the bolt & check for accumulated oil residue & built-up junk. Clean everything (including bolt). Reassemble with lighter fluid or a very very light coat of oil. Same drill for the trigger. I'm not familiar with the Timney...

    The title says it all. The Williams sights are anodized aluminum & I'd prefer one with surface in good condition (minor scratches acceptable). On the Mossberg sight I need all 3 pieces: Garand/carbine type guard, blade & screw. If you have any...

    Neat looking conversion & should be great handling size. I'm also a Mossberg freak: the 142-A & 152 with the 18" bbl. are handy & accurate (the favorite of some grandchildren). Is that front sight from a Remington "P" (510P,511P,512P)?

    I enlarged that photo to the max & used a magnifying glass. The grip alteration & shorter barrel is a great idea. That entire article would be a valuable addition to any gun nut (like me).

    Here is a photo of the completed project. I did a rough sight-in & my youngest son will fine tune the sight-in; hopefully tomorrow. My 83 year eyes do not do well with open sights. I had a trigger issue & several forum members helped me solve...

    I disassembled the bolt from my #2 511 (I don't mess with #1) and found the cause of the heavy trigger pull. Take a look at the attached photo & you'll see big time differences in the firing pin springs. Although the 510 spring is shorter, it is...

    Thanks for this information. I'm unable to compare trigger pull prior to the disassembly/re-blue. I bought the rifle on Guns International. It was in sad shape with a broken stock & heavily patina/rust condition on all metal surfaces. In short: I...

    I'm not familiar with the factory method: please explain. I did try the method you explained in your #7 post. As my #9 post indicates: I've tried every possible tension all they down to no tension on the sear screw. The sear contact surfaces are...

    Using the bolt from my #1 511: 4.5 lb. weight can be lifted, but a 4.75 weight trips the trigger (any movement with 4.5 will trip it). Using bolt from my #2 511: 4.75 can be lifted, but 5.0 trips the trigger (any movement with 4.75 will trip it). ...

    Great idea. That will tell me if the problem does, in fact, reside in the bolt without a lot of drama. First thing tomorrow. Thanks, Henry

    No luck with shacking off on the 2 left side screws. I tried every possible tension (even no tension) but the pull remains @ 5 3/4 lbs.. I removed the trigger/sear assy. & gave it a close inspection. None of the parts have any wear marks. Maybe...

    The drawing is the sear (not perfect). You are correct: the forward hole interfaces with the rear hole of the ejector (not extractor).Thanks for catching that error, Also, thanks for confirming that the torque on the side screws could effect the...

    My diagam is misleading. The critical surface of the sear is the upper rear corner that interacts with the firing pin.

    Thanks, Trigger linkage works smooth as silk, but in removing & reinstalling the bolt another thought entered my old head. The 510 has a unique feature not present on the 511,512,513 or 521T: the rearward movement of the bolt moves the safety lever...

    I have several of the Remington 500 series .22rf rifles. Up to now they have all had good smooth triggers. Over the years whenever I had one detail disassembled I'd smooth any burr (very gently) or any uneven surface on the contact surface (see...

    I agree with georgerkahn & schutzen-jager above ^^ The Mossberg 152 (semi-auto) & 142 & 142A (bolt) are carbine length & are handy. As georgerkahn states the 142/142A magazines are capable of LR or shorts. Regarding the Remington 500 series: I...
