Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: What do you do when you run out of TP?

For real? Back around 1984 we had a full house. My family plus moms boyfriend, his two kids and his brother and his cousin. So things ran out faster than normal. On separate occasions I cut up a paper shopping bag, a pair of worn out underwear and then a couple of coffee filters. Mom would have been...

Re: Ammo is getting scarce.................

I am ok in ammo. But could always use more. I like to check out prices. I went over to my favorite site sgammo.com and was surprised despite reading about the surge in sales only to see they'd shut down new orders for at least a week. You can't even get into their site to see what they had,. I don't...

Re: M1917 warped stock, etc.

Hey doc, about adding weight. When I was shooting high power matches I'd get bruised up during rapid fire. Dumbass me would get excited and slip up. I was shooting my M1. I added twenty-seven .58 caliber musket balls. Basicly all that would fit. It eliminated my bruising problem, I would recommend g...

Re: Kar98az upper band

Your best bet would have been Springfield Sporters. Sadly they closed up shop due to the owners decking health.
Good/bad news Century Arms bought their parts inventory.

You can drop them a line with what you are looking for. Last I heard they were still sorting parts.

Re: Hello everyone :)

Hi Austin. Welcome back.
Nothemug, welcome. You might be interested in a recent issue of Firearm News, they have a piece on battle damaged rifles.
And Weffol, hello and welcome. Nice looking place. Not likely to make it to Europe, but if you are ever near Orlando... :)

I have read they like a heavier bullet, 180 grain to 200.
I can't confirm this first hand. But enough guys here have said it from experience.

Re: OWS "sporter" M48

I did the math, for a friend. :) I was more interested in the mod 98s. Stocks while not any cheaper are more available. A death in the family will have things, moneywise, tight for the foreseeable future. But when things are good again I want another Yugoslavian m48, or 24/47 etc. But I want a nice ...

Re: M1 Garand and me, both from 1955

Very nice.
In 1998 I got my "one in a lifetime M1". Well that was the policy until 1999.
Mine was a 2,46 million Springfield service grade that had been through Toole in the month and year I was born.
It shoots far better than I am capable of doing.
