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: Amazing, Shermans vs Panzers last tank battle 1960s

Yes, Israeli engineers proved that the Sherman was vastly more upgradeable than the Panzer MkIV. Hey, with a gyro stabilized gun, a better engine, more armor, and a much bigger gun, the upgraded Sherman could have gone tiger hunting. Even the Pershing didn't have a 105mm gun and neither did the king...

Re: Need advice: removale of f s assy m1917.

I've noticed that the guys coming out of a gun smithing school in Pennsylvania aren't idiots. Ask were they went to learn the trade. I've had two occasions to notice good work coming from people from that school. Mine was very careful not to distort the barrel on a Snider-Enfield conversion rifle wh...

Re: Mossberg 42M

I saw an actual barrel for a 42M marked US Property for sale on GB. If only 42M's were more common. No bolt with the barreled action though.

Re: Enfield No.2 Mk1

Ummh, just came across this. Jack First has you part as I broke mine and got one there. They are out of the Dakotas. You should be able to google them up. If they don't have it in stock, they make them. A bit pricey, but a life saver. I attaches to the hammer, correct.

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

Why pay to shop at a gun show anymore? No deals really. It is just best to buy online between Thanksgiving and Christmas when prices are low in general. Do some research on prices before hand, save a wad and see what you can do during the buyers season I just mentioned. Also, trading is likely a goo...

Re: Mossberg M44

I listened to you guys and got a 44US, not a 44US a,b,c or d (commercial versions). CMP is out and GunBroker doesn't have one under $300 in decent shape, so I checked out Rimfire central and got one there for a respectable price in decent condition. The work Mossberg did on the rifling back in the 1...

Re: M91 Moisin Nagant in US Service

A M1917 Enfield in 30-06 has peep sights, which the M91 Mosin doesn't, so it should shoot better. Peep sights usually win over standard tangent ones I believe. Too bad the US troops didn't have M39 Finnish Mosins with SAKO barrels. There is something to be said for a good barrel and trigger. Best Re...

Re: Share you facts on the Type I rifle

I truly suspect that since the Typo I's didn't have an emperor's mum on them, they were kept in reserve. I don't even know if they were shipped with many spares at all. I'm guessing not. That would be another reason to keep them in reserve. I guess they could make firing pins okay though, but bolts ...

Re: JW-15 or ????

I believe the JW-15 is a knock off of the CZ-Trainer or Basic. I have one and looked it up long ago. Strange, the model number of mine is on the barrel/receiver and is clearly seen. I think it has the old school cut rifling.

Re: Carcano Type "I" 500 yard range report

.268 diameter bullets are designed for Carcanos since they have larger bores than standard .264 diameter 6.5mm. My M91 Carcano made in 1917 is a big candidate for that bullet as well as most 6.5mm Carcano rifles. The typo I was made to strict standards laid down by Japanese inspectors in the Italian...

Re: Share you facts on the Type I rifle

The most important part missing is the Emperor's mum, which it does not have. If the Emperor isn't going to have his mark on your rifle, you can only surmise that the rifle is second rate. Who wants to fight for the Emperor without a rifle with his mark on it? More people should know this. The Japan...

Re: Stopping Power - Good Overview Video

I think the type of ammo has a larger impact in most of these situations. JHP does worlds more damage than FMJ. I would surmise that 32acp with JHP ammo is comparable to 45acp with FMJ ammo at close range. If the US Army thought that 45acp was far better than 38spl in stopping hopped up attackers in...
