  1. I can only echo what everyone else has already said. I've been taking firearms to Jeff since the mid 80's.
  2. I am similarly afflicted, so I just trust that thumb pressure and a quick release will protect me.
  3. Do you load the clip with the side of your hand against the op rod handle?
  4. The gun gods are smiling down upon you for that restoration. That original trigger guard/rear action "bolt" photo will be the source of nightmares for the rest of my days...
  5. I just looked at my copy of the NRA's "The M1 Rifle" booklet. I have the 3rd edition published in 1993. On page 18 it lists some loads that are safe for the M1 rifle. Under "147/150 gr bullets - either FMJ or HBPT" for IMR 4895 it lists a charge of 49.0 gr. It says "In no circumstance should any charge weight be increased". So I guess 49.0 is a max load to work up to. It also states that if military cases are used to reduce charges by 1.5 gr.
  6. I've checked the Weather Chanel forecast for Monday a few times since I originally posted at about 2:30PM today (5 to 8 inches snow accumulation). At about 6:00PM today the Monday forecast for Nashville said 3 to 5 inches. At about 8:30PM it was back to 5 to 8 inches. Just a minute ago at 10:30PM it was back to 3 to 5 inches. I'm sure there's a Valentine's Day joke in there somewhere.....
  7. Metro Nashville just sent this out: "A critical alert has been issued for Nashville Davidson County. Temperatures in Davidson County are expected to drop to dangerously frigid levels over the weekend. Freezing drizzle, rain, sleet, and frigid temperatures forecasted. It is important to take precautions during this time.

  8. Well that's perfectly normal behavior based on my time in elementary school.
  9. Were you one of those kids that ate paste in elementary school?
  10. I know its Amazon, but they currently have 3M replacement Gel Pads for Peltor earmuffs for $20.56. I have always seen these sell for $40-$50 per pair. These are sold by Amazon and not a third party vendor. I was suspicious, but ordered a couple of a pairs to replace some gel pads that are about 8-10 years old. The gel pads I received were in 3M packaging and had a 3M instruction sheet. They have 3M embossing in the plastic on the underside of the pads. They look and feel like the gel pads I'm replacing did when they were new. If you wear Peltor hearing protection for long periods o
  11. Tried to send you a message regarding buying the mags, but the site won't let me(?).
  12. Ahh the memories..... I have a couple of storage boxes of MGN. Can't bring myself to get rid of them for some reason.
  13. I've had an M-57 for a few years and it's a great pistol. I find the unique magazine and associated mag safety to be somewhat aggravating. The thumb safety on mine doesn't bother me. Unluckily/luckily mine had a slightly frosted bore, while the rest of it looks nearly new. The lucky part is that I don't have to worry about being the first one to frost the bore with corrosive ammo. It also keeps me from shooting my Russian Tokarev too much.
