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: Hakim

They are great shooting rifles. Of the FN49's types, the 8mm is perhaps the best in accuracy and the better gas system.
Nice rifle.

Re: Garand range report

Good shooting with a great rifle Calfed. Decades ago the DCM sold M1D's for a week turns out it was like a lottery. No internet so you had to send in your paperwork and a money order for 225 bucks. I sent mine in but was too late by 12 hours. The DCM contacted me and wanted to sell me a M1 that was ...

Re: Beretta 1951 : A great review

Thank you for posting the link. I'd love to find info on my pistol as it is very old and has four original grip screws.

Re: Finn Fun @ 300 yards

What a neat rifle. I bet it would do the same thing at 800 yards.

Re: Trigger time! (aka I'm still here!)

It really sounds like a weak spring since you have two strikers and they both do the same thing.

Re: Trigger time! (aka I'm still here!)

Take your Mauser bolt apart and scrub out the striker stop at the front of the bolt. Make sure there is no dried cosmoline piled up in there. If clean, it could be your spring. To prove the spring has gone weak put it in a padded vice and stretch the spring a couple of links. Try your primer test if...

Re: .310 Cadet handloads at 200 meters off-hand

UPDATE: I won the match using the Cadet rifle. Lots of "Hang-Dog faces as they got beaten by a "Bot Scout Rifle" at 200 meters off hand!

Re: Home Rolled Solvent

Hydrogen peroxide while safe on Barrel Browning can change the color of a blued gun. It is used in home brew Cold bluing and if left on the Blued parts will darken or streak the colors if left on the surface for an hour.
Just be aware of that.

Re: My Yugo M24/47

They are in the top 5 accurate 8x57 m/m Mauser types out there. I've shot mine at 800 yards and it did very well with the 198 grain bullets.

Re: Canadian 8mm Mauser?

Its great ammo. You have some AP as well. Not common at all.
I've shot tens of thousands of these in my Maxim Guns.
The Britt's and Canadians had the BESA Tank machine gun.
And we were providing China with 8x57mm ammo as well.

Re: The State of Our Hobby

Over the years I have only had five young people shoot with us. Only one ever stayed with my club. They found out real quick that shooting farther than 25 yards was a skill and not a video game. I'd love to have the young folk show up and shoot with us,their minds are so poisoned against firearms th...

I am using the rifle for the match next Saturday. The little rifle is just so accurate and easy to shoot 200 meters is just too easy to do.

I've written to you a couple of times over on other gun forums about your locking blocks. Reviews are very good. Go ahead and make NINE more post here,and you can sell your blocks to members. You may even offer a Group buy to get the price down a little. Better yet, become a supporter/sponsor of SRF...
