Re: CZ Devotees

Um...I think MacAttack was referring to my problem with my -97B, not to anything else.

I've tried swapping out mag springs (even taking a spring from the good mag and trying it in one of the others) and no change.

Didn't trying swapping followers, though.

Re: CZ Devotees

And I thought the -97B was CZ's bastard child...I love mine, it's the best shooting gun in my safe. And I have big hands, so I like pistols with big grips. But I've had a devil of a time getting mags that feed properly, at least with the full 10 rounds. The only one that works right is the one that ...

Re: Critique my Bug-In Location

Probably a really long term project, but have you thought about building some sort of biogas maker, like a gobar gas digester? Depending on how many people and animals you had up there, that would at least extend your propane supply, if not make you self-sufficient?

Just act like a cop. Be respectful, be polite, be professional; but always project authority and control, and be ready to handle the situation when it goes south.

Re: 1898 Krag-Jorgensen-how much to make it shoot?

Actually, the Krag (and any rifle that uses a rimmed cartridge) headspaces on the rim, not the shoulder as with most rimless cartridges. Wear points are numerous, but could include the bolt face, chamber, and locking lug. In general, with old rifles of uncertain provenance, it's a good idea to get t...

Re: 1898 Krag-Jorgensen-how much to make it shoot?

Depending on the actual model and if it has been chopped up or not, you may have a firearm worth a pretty penny so tread lightly when you do shoot it. They don't make the parts any more. Pictures are worth a thousand words BTW. I'm going to pick it up from my parents house in the next few days, and...

Is a vent rib applicable on a tacticool gun? Just looking to see how many people have it. If you don't have rifle or ghost ring sights, the vent rib can help make sure your eye is lined up straight on the bead, as well as help you know when you're eye is down low enough. Tendency with bead sights i...
