Re: Sinking of the Coventry

Might it have been a Frigate? IRC Sheffield & Coventry were the only destroyer lost. What I can recall with fair certainty is that we were touring a destroyer. What I can remember about it definitely looks like the type 42s after looking at some pictures. Edit: I revise the statement in red. I did ...

Re: 1928 Tula 5 line 91-30 worth $200.00?

Even a typical, common refurb, non-matching, would likely fetch at least $200 in shootable condition, probably at least $250.

Yep. This will be a disaster. It's easier to get inside the White House, since it allows tours. They have firepower all over to protect it, and that's a place they're willing to let you in.

Re: Sinking of the Coventry

It's too bad modern warships can't take hits. Do you remember the name of the ship. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name. It was interesting, though. We were fortunate in the tour since we were first in the line. We got to yack a good deal with the officer about the ship. I remember a helicopter ...

Re: Sinking of the Coventry

In 1984, I was a kid at the world's fair in New Orleans. A British destroyer was briefly moored there and the officer giving the tour said it had a sister ship sunk in the Falklands.

My guess is that it was this one. The turrets on the ship give me a sense of recognition in my old memory.

Re: Buying and selling

It's crucial to know the gun involved, as well as the "going rate." Also, it helps to know the profit margin a dealer will be likely to get if he takes the gun in on a trade. Something I've noticed from prowling around gun shows: I sometimes put a rifle on my shoulder just to see what someone in the...

300 is a good price,

Agree. You did good.

The simple fact is, they make excellent hunting rifles, and that's part of the reason so many got sporterized.

Their customer service is often said to be outstanding.
They have a lifetime- no questions asked - guarantee regardless if you are the original purchaser or not.

Yeah, that's what I'm told. Though I've not shot any, I give a nod to Hi Points, especially when budgets are tight.

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 ...

Re: Cheap ammo & value of rifle.

This is a question answerable by basic economics: price of related goods as a factor of demand. If related goods are expensive, it means demand for the product will be less. (and vice versa).
