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: VISUAL REFERENCE GUIDE - Rifle No5 Mk1 Fazakerley

Now here's what I've been looking for regarding No5's with no bayo lug. Mayne it IS part of the history after all? After the Confrontation war, the Malaysian army began phasing out the Jungle Carbine. Many were passed to the Police Field Force, a paramilitary law enforcement force which was basicall...

Re: Shooting in the rain.

I've seen that on one or two occasions. I always assumed it was very fine particles of water atomized to an aerosol by the impact, but it could be steam I guess. I caught a ricochet from the bank once it was too hot to hold, hot enough to scorch a shirt & all the lead had gone it was just a mangled ...

Re: Mad Minute

Regarding cadence.
At that kind of speed (12 seconds for 6 rounds on average) there's a better way. Inhale while charging a new load of 5, let it out slowly as you fire 6, step & repeat. If you cant comfortably do a slow exhale for 6 seconds you're in really poor shape!

Re: Curiouser & curiouser, said Alice! (FAL mags)

Its shown in the pictures above already. Here's a different angle on it. What are you needing & I'll take something for you? Are you looking for a sign of the original inch tab being ground off? It'll be hard to tell with this one, the body is not a one piece folded round a mandrel as most are but 2...

Re: Curiouser & curiouser, said Alice! (FAL mags)

I found it at a gun show.
The interesting thing is its metric locking catch.
Both the .303 & the 7.62mm Indian Brens were inch pattern.

Re: Mad Minute

Great find. Part of the problem with Snoxalll's world record is there's no information on him ever existing, much less doing this! Now, many records from that period are missing, for many reasons, but the guy's an enigma wrapped in a riddle. You also have to remember it was a "World Record" attempt,...

Re: Mad Minute

Are we thinking of this video, perhaps? The guy is excellent the only flaw I could find was his dismounting the rifle to reload.

Re: Mad Minute

Yes that was the (disputed) world record. There was a confirmed one with (IIRC 36 rounds). 15 was the "pass/fail" standard for riflemen, if you could do 15 (or more) you got the marksmanship bonus pay! Many could do 30 & I've done 28 more than once. The target had a 12" "center" but was 4' square. “...

Re: Mad Minute

It is, the standard required was 15 rounds aimed in 60 seconds hitting a 4' target at 300yds. Many did better.

Hows THIS for an anomaly? A metric/Inch hybrid 30-round FAL magazine, & not from South Africa!
Indian 7.62mm Bren mag, but with a Metric locking catch!

Re: California indoor water rules

No-one said it had to make any sense, its California we're discussing here! :shock: Yes there is a drinking straw water purifier. If you can suck a significant amount of fluid through it without getting a prolapsed lung then you can also suck-start a Mack truck via the exhaust pipe with no problems!...
