  1. Lets not demoralize monkeys. I have gone to some trouble to try and effect a safer life style for all monkeys in the name of Science. If you see one of these on a stop sign, I was there promoting these poor underestimated critters.....
  2. Back in the 90's when I used to have a full service shop, I had a guy bring in a 375 70 of about "70's" manufacture. He wanted a cheap scope put on and sighted. Despite my suggestion to step it up in the optics, he wanted the Bushnell 3x9 sport view. Yup, you read that right! The gun was given to the guy and he wanted to try it out on a deer as cheaply as possible. So I mounted it up on Weaver rings with a dab of rubber cement in the saddles to fend off scope shift and hit the 100y range with a box of Win ammo off the shelf. The 70 clocked in with a couple of the best groups I ever fired out of a belted magnum. Factory ammo in a bone stock factory gun and its cutting clover leafs like nothing! Threw a freakin Sport View no less.... I all ways felt the 375 H&H was the king of dangerous game guns. And I'v worked on all kinds of bolt guns. Mostly trigger tunes & glass bedding before the whole pillar thing came to being and the M70's are my favorite design of all time. With a crisp 3.25 lb trigger pull on that straight up design...... it just doesent get any better than that. John Moses Browning lamented to his workers over and over, "the simplest design, is the best design". And KahrMan has all of that in that 375.
  3. Doing competent gun work comes down to a person's skill level with tools. There are various levels of mechanically inclined individuals. There are a number of basics, a person should be unflinchingly comfortable with. Reading a Dial caliper and being able to file a true flat onto a surface. Are you prepared to buy a varied number of tools. The sad thing is a lot of folks "think" their basic maintenance auto mechanic skills will carry them threw. And for some it may, but others just end up with a zip lok baggy being dropped of at a Gunsmith shop. So a day or week end may only tell you if you maybe, kinda, sorta have the skill talent to shape, fit and form gun steel. Best thing is buy your self some clunkers and see if you can install non fitting sights, make new grip panels "better" that the originals, learn trigger sear function and the geometery in the various designs. Having the ability to understand the function of each interrelated gun part is a key mechanical ability that not many folks have. Where you fall into those abilities will show up in your clunker reworks!
  4. I see it like this with what little has been discussed of his history. There will be a person victimized by this kid sooner or latter that "should" put him in jail. In a good jail, drugs are obviously not allowed AND the Officers need to be on point with their area searches and body frisking. Hopfully his conviction will get him enough time to cold turkey what ever crap he's on and only at the point of release you cal hope "he" desides to kick his habit and return to the world. untill then, someone has to take his hit.
  5. Iv done a bunch of custom mods to the SKS design. Its like the K98 mauser of mid weight semi autos. Just yesterday I finished up the machining specs so you can use factory ASC AR-type magazines in the SKS. Its for use with the Marcus G9 mag adapter. With this new machining spec, it will get the G9 adapters back on the market. That makes factory mags completely interchangeable with AR-47's.
  6. Look under "Sten,All types" . If they don't scratch your itch, no one else will to this extent. http://www.weaponsguild.com/forum/index.php
  7. I read Carolyn Meadows Presidents column a couple days ago in my Rifleman mag and it made me want to puke on the page. Second sentence " Its an honor to serve as NRA President and also to work along side Wayne LaPierre, Exc VP Chris Cox"..... bla bla bla with a crap load of other pocket stuffers. The only way this out fit will survive IMO is it must be taken over by the very ones who sounded the alarm at the git go. Namely Oly North and the likes such as Alan West. Its going to be a drag out battle to right this historic organization and you need in honesty what Carolyn M said, "TO SERVE" not to be served as the leadership has so gainfully been doing. C Meadows didn't allude to a single issue of why North stepped down. Its exactly this kind of arrogant façade that will turn off the cash flow much faster than if they just came out and explaned the situation and what they are doing to correct it. But Noooo, in NRA world, the Emperor has new cloths!
  8. Ha Ha... here we go again. I like constitutional carry also and let the bodies fall were they may! As a person quite familiar with non country raised folks, It will be interesting to see if the negligent discharges surge with those citizens that want criminals to fear them because they have a gun. Beyond that desire..... they are so ignorant about the physical attributes of a firearm, it would make your head spin! I'm taking dumb, stupid, AH in the highest degree. And there are a S*** load of them living quite happily in their city controlled environment. As our overall rural populations decrease and suburban areas pick up that migration, yeah, a certain type of population control may not be a bad thing! The bigger picture shows those folks are also spread out all over. Maybe the average rural citizen knows the difference between a 22 and a 30-30 but still may be lacking in the ability to educate them selves in the safe handling of a carry conceal weapon. The mind set is alive and well..... how many times have you been forced toward the shoulder of the road driving your vehicle because some jerk was hurtling a 4000 lb missile at you? Training or no training, stupid is a common human attribute. Making it easier for all types of folks to put loaded weapons in their pockets has a good news/bad news rider attached. Just how that balances out in the long run may not benefit the 2A crowd. Lets say Hilary won.....as she held the pop vote totals, Supreme court goes left, deaths by CC handgun stats go up or are cooked, That's there in for anther thumping of the 2A. a bigger turd sandwich that what may have happened if they just leave the 38 state Concealed Carry requirements as they are. I think a better win may be just expanding the current 38 states to all 50 and be done with it. Constitutional carry is technically correct, I get that, reality is we have degenerated from the days when you had to own property to be able to vote. My wife works in child care. An awful lot of kids are medicated and way, way out of control. The Law has more or less mandated a slow death to what we old guys knew as personal responsibility and the way to teach it to the young. That's just reality the way I see it.
  9. Well, It could very well be a hoax, God knows there have certainly been plenty in history. But.... tick tacs that can fly circles around our best military equipment and travel over 500MPH under water according to our Navy personel? Its time to maybe hold out with yae or nay until the rest of the testing is complete and see what those labs find. There are ET's according to Col. Corso in his book The Day After Roswell. With an open mind, anything is possible so lets see what else becomes of the testing. https://www.gaia.com/article/unearthing-nazca-an-update-on-the-nazca-mummies And hey, I'm half White Russian! ...... and your right! once they get to drinking I wouldn't believe a dam thing that spills out of their mouths!
  10. The bores had some pretty rough spots so shooting it was not a possible solution. Fluid steel in that shape would be maybe OK with a real good spin polish & hi speed hone but not with the laminated bore. I'm not one to cut good barrels either but the condition AND the 14 inches that I cut off took nearly 2 full pound off the 32 inchers. This thing "was" the definition of unwieldy! Now, not so much. The now 8.5 lb weight is actually nicely balanced now. I love the over sized receiver. The picture is a 16 gauge build on basically a 12 g size receiver. The big 10 comes alive in the side by side shot. A 30-30 round is all of puny inside the 10g chamber. I'm not too worried about a 30-30 hand fit to this garunga!
  11. Well, my choices would be the 45-70 but the 3, 45-70 barrels I have are really nice octagon take offs. Now the other side of the pressure story that's seldom added to the equation, is recoil forces upon the breach. If this was a different lock up design of less than best quality soldering in the chamber end I would not go the hotter 30-30. The 30-30 recoil forces upon the breach face is not the problem. The only issues I can see is more than likely a bushed FP hole for a smaller FP tip and monitor head space, but again, the extra large surface area of the hinge pin and hardened lock plate are all built for moving 1 & 1/4 oz shot along at a fair pace ahead of the BP explosion. Most of todays factory 30-30 loads are not quite optimal pressures. Just as the factory 45-70 is a whisper of what the hand loader can do. So, At worst, IMO, some head space may become evident with steady use since the breach lug is not a heat treat hardened surface. I would wring it out with a couple boxes, measure for head space and if no change, put it away for maybe an around the house blaster.
  12. I don't know what it is exactly with rabbit ear doubles..... they just speak to me in some mystical way. I have a Doumolin 16g and now this new acquisition from GB for the rather decent price of $221 shipped. Its a 10g tank that I promptly cut down to 18.5 inches. The bores are about 75-80% . The old Damascus cannon has just the tiniest lock up movement over its strong dual under lugs. I intend to line the bores as a 12g and 30-30. Theres plenty of meat in the barrels to bore out for a 12g lining and I'v got some SS 308 blanks that I'll turn to light weight and bushing it in with aluminum. Top it off with a quick change lateral sliding rear sight for either barrel. The sad part is it falls in line with some other projects ........ still waiting for that illusive "time" thing to come around! My addiction exposed.........
  13. Well, I'm mostly familiar with NYC since I baby sat their lesser and career criminals for over 25 years. Had some eye opening discussions with my "good" inmates many times. Don't be naïve to think the American dream is achieved by all inner city minorities in some normal fashion. Upstate prison bids stacked up like sleeve hash marks give BIG street status. NYC has population half the size of this state that young girls fawn over the richest street dealers just to get at least one baby by them. Again that "fatherless baby gives the girl big status because of who fathered it.... and no other connection needed. That inner city society is NOTHING like what country folks here think goes on. I worked Bedford Hills, A female state prison with full maternity ward for birthing. Women commonly hand out a monthly pay out to multiple bar room fathers to bump their welfare checks up past 46K annually. How about fathers that don't even want to know their offspring's names. You can replace every TN resident with NYC minorities and still have some to go around. The city voting habits want to be taken care of in the here and now..... screw the future. The intellectual catch fraise of these genius's goes like "I gots mines" . Seems other large cities are not far from this particular form of social behavior.
  14. Too young for EBT and too smart to hold a job..... ho hum. And the neighborhood only sees one of their disrespected "robin" hoods gunned down. Like I'v said before, these cities are fatal cancers to the root of our social liberties. Only the book of Revelation will tighten this all up. JMO.
