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: You never know what turns up in trash cans

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...

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

I sold a friend an Iver Johnson look-alike M1 Carbine in 22LR and he added a few military type features to it (see photo) plus a sling and it looks great!

Re: Anyone tried Aguila ammo?

It is PHENOMENAL accurate ammo in their high velocity 22LR loading, right there behind Ely & Tenex match loads, per surprising Guns&Ammo tests.

Re: Spanish M1916 Comparison

I must be old, I remember a Dealer from my Club selling them for $75, mostly matching if I recall correctly, if not all. Not beaters either. A bunch of us bought them, all passed headspace gauge checks and we had a blast shooting them in our cast boolit shoots.

Re: How many hours of work to make a Mauser Receiver

I suspect its related to manufacturing capability. I would reason it is far more for production tooling costs & setup than capability ... Think about it, as an example, when the Thompson/Center factory building muzzleloaders (straight profile barrels) in NH burned down, the biggest obstscle to any ...

Re: Photographing a bore

How about these? FWIW, they were taken using one of ~$15 LED endoscopes - they work slick! My twin brother took these pictures of the bore of his 45-70 Trapdoor using one of those LED 5.5mm endoscopes that are sold on the likes of eBay and Amazon. They come with a 5' or longer cable that plugs into...
