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: Movie 2018, TANKERS, Russian

The translation is from Russian to Polish. not much help. Do a search and you'll find T-34 with English sub titles. It's a good movie for entertainment.

Re: Movie 2018, TANKERS, Russian

I watched it this afternoon. I was done well though the translation from Russian to English was a little strange at times. An interesting interpretation of an historical event with some original equipment.

The .22 BB or CB cap would be a better route to take.

Re: M1895 Dutch Mannlicher

They are great rifles and carbines. I have both. The bore is .266 and prefers a long heavy bullet. The original brass has been reloaded by the dutch several times and is marked as such. While the brass is very well made, it uses a non-standard Berdan primer that is hard to find. I did a penetration ...

Re: Reloading 6.5x53R Dutch

Decades ago I posted an article on how to make 6.5 Dutch brass from .303 Britt. It has been long lost due to the three crashes of this site. You need two die sets ( common to find used) I use more dies,but you can use two sets if you take your time. New,unfired .303 brass. NEVER brass fired out of a...

Got Mold?

If you collect old military pistols and their holsters you have found you have mold on the leather after a few years. I have two holsters that have been pulling my chain for 50 years now. I have tried Alcohol, Lemon juice, leather preservatives ( nothing that will hurt the original finish) and leavi...

Re: Swiss vetterli 1881/08 Short Rifle. What the..??

Many of the older Swiss rifles were cut down to be sold as "Carbines"....handy for hunting in the 60's.
I have a 1896 rifles that was like new and cut down and sold as "The Alpine Carbine" Very well done but was never an official anything in the Swiss military.

Re: storing ammo

Large swings in temperatures can cause condensation to build if stored improperly. You want air flow to replace the air in the room at least every once a day. My ammunition is stored underground in a vault where the temperatures only varies 15 degrees F from summer to winter. Moisture is less than 4...

Re: NM MILSURPS January Handgun shoot

The first practice was a blast. There were so many fired cases on the firing line cement floor we had to police brass four times!
Everyone did well. We set up 15 targets from 20 yards out to 70 yards. The 10" tall 70 yard targets were a challenge to hit but we did.

Re: What type of Soviet WW2 weapon?

The photo looks weird due to the left mans rifle has a bent/broken off cleaning rod. The rod appears to be outside of the bayonet/retaining lug and wedged against the same.
