    Buddy of mine used to do concealed carry classes. And you'd be surprised at what they showed up with to qualify. Seems many of the female shooters showed up with various makes of 45 acp's. I asked if the 45's were their husbands?. Almost to a woman...

    Nice thing about the older Lyman and Redfield sights were made out of steel. Now having said that Lyman doesn't sell the oldter steel sights anymore and hasn't made them in a bunch of years. All extruded aluminum. Same thing with the newer Redfield...

    samari46 replied to a thread replace a trigger in Factory Rifles
    Why spend the $$$ for a new trigger?. If your M70 still has the old style trigger you can change out just the spring for about $20. Check out the McCarbo website for just the trigger spring. Got one on my 1966 M70 match rifle little too light. So...

    When making 7.65x53mm argy brass from 8mm Israeli I had to neck ream because I was down into the thicker part of the 8mm brass. I used a .311 neck reamer. Form and trim die for the 7.65 case, then neck ream with Foster case trimmer and then neck...

    I'm really sorry you had to go through all that. I find big box stores have their own rules that they go by. Wal mart requires a driver's license to buy ammo. Was in there one day and a woman and her son were wanting to buy air gun pellets. Woman at...

    I've used Butch's bore shine to clean the copper fouling in my Ruger American compact rifle in 7.62x39 and an elderly Chilean short rifle in 7mm Mauser. Works by chemical means so cuts down on the bore brushing and patches. Wet a patch (I use a...

    Might try to smuggle it into the U.S. and sell it here giving the price of 22 ammo. And as one member said if the price is too good to be true then a good guess as to where it came from would be a done deal. Kinda like the old expression "it fell...

    Hollow point the base like they did with the 58 caliber minnie balls. With the deep rifling you mentioned you'd probably need a hammer if you tried to load anything like a full dimensioned bullet. So just create a pointed hollow point in the base....

    That's odd. I have two M1 Garand bayonets that the South Koreans cut down and both have two pins. And dug out my AF&H bayonet and it has two pins as well. Maybe it was reworked and the quillon was polished making the second pin less visible. In my...
