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: Removing Rust from Threads?

I have a gallon of Tasgon left over from my father's stash, who used it in the Merchant Marine in WWII. Stinks to high heaven, and people in California get cancer when I use it in New York. Kroil is better, but I feel like I'm getting revenge when I use the stuff. My dad swore by it.

Re: Jumped on the bandwagon..bought a 81 Beretta

I have the Beretta 86 in 380 ACP, which is the tip-up barrel version. One of my favorites to shoot. I even took on bowling pins at 75 yds and either knock them down or scare them. The 86 is a rare one, and the idea that you could get anything like it for $210 is an equally rare bargain. I'm on it li...

Oh woe.... this is where you really miss Springfield Sporters. I bought just about every spare part he had for my Ljungman.... including an extra NOS barrel and complete stick set for peanuts.

Re: Scout Scope Suggestions?

I've used Leupold 1.5X and 2X rifle scopes on several different scout mounts. I would keep the power low. Not more than 2.5X.

Re: Anyone tried Aguila ammo?

I've shot their 40 gr solid standard velocity target ammo in .22LR in Sporterifle competition for several years. It's as good as any ammo I've used and that includes some brands that are more than twice the price of Aguila. Quiet and very accurate. It also does the job on woodchucks if you shoot the...

Re: Something fishy in K98s

I have a very nicely refinished S42G that looks very similar to those rifles. It also has a bore that looks like a cheese grater. Pretty on the outside, it shoots well, but cleaning it is a weekend of labor.

Re: 2018 - Mosin Nagant Prices

A 1970 spam can at $29, adjusted for the change in the CPI would cost $159.50 today. Present 7.62X54R ammo cost is almost exactly the same price it was nearly 50 years ago. Back in 1970, I would have worked over 20 hrs to buy one can of ammo (working on a fishing boat, busting my butt). Today I can ...

Re: 2018 - Mosin Nagant Prices

Prices have gone up disproportionately on the lower priced models. Snipers still top out at around $1000, as they did 5 years ago. Spam can ammo seems abundant at about $150/440 rounds. Still relatively cheap.

Re: Swedish M41B

How does it shoot? In my hands, with decaf, I can shoot just under MOA with just about any ammo. I can't do much better than that with any rifle, so lets say that the M41B does not detract from the best of my abilities. I think a better bench shooter would be required to determine it's full potenti...

Re: Swedish M41B

I reblued the metal, refinished stock, and overhauled the optics to get it back to as-issued. I'd be drawn and quartered by some as a heretic for doing so, but I own the rifle. Doug Turnbull is just up the road from me, and when he does the same thing, someone writes an article about his having work...

Re: Swedish M41B

Everybody who owns one likes the M96, and these are the best of the lot with a siderail scope. You'll like this one. Yes, they are accurate with the right handloads. Mine is also dead nuts accurate with 50-yr-old surplus and el cheapo Prvi, and everything else I've found.

Yes, $200 is VERY reasonable. They are made of unobtainium.
