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.

Not a collector, but a shooter, but my Norinco is darn accurate too!

Re: a 0.2inch dia. borescope for $50.00 Take my money!

Do not use the software that comes with the cameras. They have been known to contain viruses and malware among other things. Ha, it is my ‘conspiracy theory’ that the Chinese load some type of tracker on any of their software or apps ... so they know where are the gun owners are when they go to tak...

Black & white, yes? I found the color information worth the extra cash! But horses for courses. Duh ... I guess I missed that part, haha! But wait a minute ... the lens only sees ‘whatever color that is there’, as the image is read by a color tablet or laptop. So maybe the bore of that Trapdoor is ...

This one here for $15 or less does pretty darn good! Also has the 90-degree mirror. I tape it to a ramrod to look at the bore of my 4' to 5' long muzzleloader barrels: http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=2980&p=18676&hilit=Led+borescope#p18676 Here's pictures from a Trapdoor. image...

No Glock fan here, but somehow guessing that may be your winner. Personally I’m still an all metal dbl-stack 9mm fan here, with the CZ-75B my personal favorite.

Re: This "Schmeisser designed the AK" nonsense...

Wow ... pissing contest and no idea whom to believe. But I myself don’t believe the Ruskies did it. And sorry, but I see zero commonality between an AK bolt and a Garand bolt, other than they rotate.

That is so cool! You know, when you are done with it, I wonder what would be a good museum or such to donate it to, so people can continue to learn from it and enjoy it. Nice find!

Re: M78 Vetterli rear sight adjust

Why can’t it ... ? And of course I’ve been known to bend a barrel or two. Actually 5, but only one was a modern centerfire. The others are BP replica fowlers and that’s how you adjust to your point of aim from load of choice.

Re: Swiss M-78 Load Development and Results

No idea on the 4198 load, but on the SMLE Enfields, rimmed case, I put 1 thin dental/braces elastic at/above the rim for the 1st firing, to keep the rim up against the bolt, or breech block in your case. Fireforms the case to the chamber, then I neck-size only. I do not know/own a Vetterli .. but co...
