Re: Winter wood.

Around these parts we have a mix of Natural gas, Propane, #2 Fuel oil, electric/heat pump, and a few of our industrial customers even use Bunker Oil/waste oil ( which sucks) I worked for a company 30 years ago that still installed and service coal stocker furnaces and boilers ( they to suck) And ano...

Getting ready for my next sniper build, SA M1A

Picked up a very nice mid 80's SA M1A with all USGI parts for a future M21 sniper build. Hoping to get some range time with it this coming weekend.

Re: A new Range toy, BYF44 HT sniper

Well after some range time with some 8mm surplus I finally got some time with some good ammo. Shot some 200gr PPU FMJBT Match ammo and some PPU brass loaded by a buddy of mine. My HT doesn't seem to like the PPU match ammo, but loves Andy's hand loads. -717055039_20200911_174744_3668521_resized.jpg ...

Re: Standard issue Canadian Ross rifle

+1, slugging the barrel and casting the chamber is the only way I can think of to verify the rifles caliber & cartridge.

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

Nice one MT, I love the look of it but oh dear that flash hider.... Thanks Josey, the M2 flash hider was very effective I am told but some snipers worried, because of its loose fit, that it was messing with the barrels harmonics. The Army in 1955 started issuing the T37 flash hider on rebuilt M1D's...

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

I didn't mean to down play the investment side of it....a more sure thing than any stock I know about that's traded on Wall Street. A delight to own and and an investment that will only appreciate. Didn't take it that way Robert, don't think I have lost money on a firearm yet, but very few have mad...

Re: Making room in the safe, 44 S.A. M1C

You are particularly correct Robert, she does view them as investments that do make money (not big money) over time. But this purchase will be a nice investment as i picked it up for a little more than what CMP was selling the rifle and base for ($3500 and it sold last week) That doesn't count what ...
