  1. For the guys who remember the good old days. I have a Pacific scale, you remember those don’t you? Does anyone remember the size of the damper pot? I think I can use ATF for the oil. Thanks.
  2. Century arms receiver??? I have the same model L1A1, but the receiver is a Hess. Very few guys like either one. They shoot great though. Someone should make an offer on this. I’ve had a number of semi autos in 7.62mm including the HK91. I disliked its bong-bong so much I converted it to a HK51 “Fire Dragon”.
  3. To get back to you POA. Subsonic vs high velocity, I think gravity would have something to do with it.
  4. Is the receiver metric or inch pattern? Who manufactured the receiver?
  5. If you go for a plywood top I’d get a 4’x8’ 1/2 inch and have Lowe’s or Home Depot cut in half. You’ll have ~1” top. I made mine from a large packing crate. Made it in the late 60’s. Still going strong.
  6. Have you checked the drawing numbers to verify to the correctness of the Springfield parts sans trigger group? I can’t quite see the cartouche, what is it? Is there a ‘P’ on the butt somewhere? Thanks.
  7. I have a box of 50each of .32 S&W Long to pass on to anyone who shoots it. Winchester. West Knoxville pickup.
  8. Question: Can the ejection port be changed from right to left like the AUG?
  9. What do you think the trigger pull is on the .380? Bob
  10. Thanks Leroy. I can look for coated .355 coated. Mr. Jackson posted one such site above.
  11. I have a bunch of the coated lead bullets in 9mm which I have never used. Question is: do they lead the barrel? Both my .380’s have cut rifling not that button rifling that I don’t care for.
  12. Berry’s are plated as I understand it. Loaded up around thirty of two different powders, middle of the road pressure wise, to test. I am using flat base data. Just don’t want to destroy a pistol. No bulge with .356. Will soon be moving on to a Beretta pico in .380. They suggest a stout load for it as the recoil spring is the strongest I’ve seen in one of the small pistols. Thanks, Bob
  13. I am getting into loading .380’s on both my Dillon’s and Rock Chuckers. Find the lighter bullets, 85 to 90 grains, with a .355 diameter are impossible to find. I purchased 500ea. 100 grain .356” that are RNHB (round nose hollow base). They came from Midsouth. Anyone shot these as I find no data for the hollow base in 100 grain. Does loading data for 100 grain flat base apply? Thanks, Bob
  14. I also have a M1A built up by the Alabama marksmanship unit. All GI parts except the receiver, barrel, and stock. Why built yours?
