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: Target Rifles

Really nice rifles! I love the Unertl scopes. My favorite rifle I had in the 'Nam has one of his BV-20 scopes.

Re: My Swedish m/96, dated 1904

You can reduce the shiny finish by using GOOP Hand Cleaner with Pumice or Rotton-Stone rubbed into the finish. The poress will remain sealed but you will end up with a dull finish.

Re: Anyone here have a Russin SVT40?

The SVT40 was a short lived rifle. The gas system is an interesting design that when you buy one of the surplus rifle,can be very worn and pitted. This causes the gas regulator to be adjusted to a higher than normal setting. This in turn causes a very dangerous condition where the case can be extrac...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

Thank you for keeping this thread alive. A really interesting piece of history all around.
It was a different USA back then. How times have changed.
Mine is on the bookshelf with the Hand Grenade collection. It looks to be at home there.

Re: SMLE hitting high at 200

Yes you can use JB Weld but in time it will break off from normal use and carrying in the gun case. I have had luck using a sliver of a Penny ( 1 cent) not the girl, and soft soldered it to the top of the front sight. I made it too tall and then filed it down as needed. When you sell the rifle, remo...

Re: Faux Swedish M41B CMP vintage sniper match rifle...updated with range report

That is great shooting! The two at 7 o'clock were the result of the cross being canted to the left slightly. The scope being so high above the bore will cause this and is a learned lesson to really make sure the scope is level. I use the horizon behind the target to verify the cross hairs are level....

Your very welcome for the loads. I just finished a long range load for the 6.5x50 Jap, 8x56R and this weekend, the 6.5 MS for the 1907 Geek Mannlicher rifle.

Re: Ljungman reloading

The 5TH round flier has always been a baffler. IMHO I think it has to do with the force or lack of the follower/ammo pushing on the bottom of the bolt carrier. My rifle does the same thing as well. I found that Hornandy Unique Case lube will work as well. Use the slightest film amount you can. If yo...

Re: M1903 Mk I

About a decade ago there was a fellow making a Peterson Device as a kit for these rifles. If I remember correctly it was in .32ACP or the like and was $2,500 to purchase. I saw one at a gun show but never really looked at it closely nor knew anyone who had shot the device other than the seller. I ne...

Re: Type 99 bullets test at 500 yards...Range Report

It is my bad,it is in fact a 174 grain bullet. The rifle has three interlocking circles as the makers mark.
