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: Best parkerizing solution?

You can mix your own for 1/5TH the cost of a bottled solution. Any good ceramic hobby shop will have the Magnesium powder and Home Depot or Lowes will have Phosphoric acid ( metal cleaner) for sale.
I've using the home brew for decades with very good results.

Re: Anyone here have a 1895 Nagant that they've tried fitting a .32 cylinder to?

The "kit" sellers never tell you the parts must be hand fitted to your revolver. The problem lies in that the new Pawl is too thick and sticks out too into the rear of the cylinder causing a drag. Also,the pistols original rotating arm is now too long. Yes,you will need to buy another arm in order t...

Franz Stock .32 ACP range report

Franz Stock .32 ACP at indoor 25 yard range. My 71 grain cast bullet loads over W231 powder. 900 FPS. I shot several pistols today. I was hoping after reading how well these pistols were made that the accuracy would be the bright star today. It was not. I was disappointed with the pistols accuracy. ...

Re: CZ 70 came home today

25 yard indoor range and my 1,000 fps loads did OK,not great. The pistol shoots to the right. I'll need to drift the rear sight over.

Re: Webley No. 4

I took the pistol to an indoor range due to poor weather and tried my hand at 25 yards using my loads using a .452 250 grain cast lead bullet over Unique powder. The pistol has a tight bore so using this bullet has always worked out well. The lighting at the range is not the best as you stand in the...

Re: Failure to fires with Rasheed rifle

How much effort does it take to cock the hammer? Is it uncomfortable to push the hammer back and catch the sear? If not,the hammer spring is too weak.

Re: Webley No. 4

All of my target photo's posted here over the years are long gone due to the many crashes.
I'll try to make it to the range this Wednesday and shoot a few rounds at 25 yards. Even with .452 bullets the pistol shoots well. I do shoot .455 powder coated bullets from time to time.

Here is my pistol, 1915. The bore is bright and shiny. It loves my 250 grain round nose cast 250 grain bullets over 4.5 grains of Unique. Shoots to aiming spot. I have won several matches with this pistol and have fire a few thousand rounds out of it. It is my G0-To pistol in .45. Webley Mark V .jpg...

Re: So many German rifles lets make lamps out of them

Been there as a young teenager. Not as good as Interarmco's collection ( just up the street) but a neat place to visit. There were so many surplus firearms small and large to buy that many had little value other than a lamp or even a bar stool.

Re: CZ 70 came home today

I test fired the pistol today against my CZ 50 and CZ 27. It held it's own keeping all shots in a 3" group at 25 yards. ( 24 shots of cast bullet reloads.)
The pistol shoots left of center and the rear sight will need to be drifted a little.
