They painted the finish on those and most No 4s I've seen. It's a protective finish, just no very pretty. Although mine was black, not brown.

Gibbs converted No 1s and No 4s by cutting off the...

You can get a heavy barrel M 77. Or a Savage, which is an excellent and less expensive rifle. All the 77s I've owned had trigger issues. I've got a Savage in .300 WM and it's very accurate.

I don't think there is any difference dimensionally in the 5.56 and .223 rounds. Reloading data is the same. At least for U.S. ammo.

Chambers are a different matter. The 5.56 military rifles...

They've killed a lot of deer around here. I don't think they're the best casual plinking rifle, as the receiver reportedly gets battered a bit from the bolt. Which, as I've heard, kinda affects them...

I've got a Pride Fowler scope on my 10-22. It's a "rimfire" scope that has what they call a "Rapid Reticle." It's got stadia lines below the crosshair, marked for a HV 22 ammo...a 50 yard zero,...

They wer emade in E. Europe and imported by Remington. My bud bought one in 30-06. Workmanship wasn't good and the rifle didn't shoot true at anything like 06 range.

Depends on what you're shooting at 300-400 yards. If it's p-dogs @ 400, it may be a bit on the low end. If it's targets it's furhter down on the low end. But for bigger varmints, coyotes and such,...

I had a Glenfield version, a good rifle. Not too much you can do for one except maybe put a scope on it. With a tubular magazine, re-stocking it won't add much performance. They're accurate...

I'm a pretty average shooter, and can tell a big difference in a floated barrel and one that's not floated. I've seen it make as much as 1/2" or maybe more.

I own two rifles with lapped barrels,...

I believe in shooting it to break it in. With a lot of rifle barrels now, especially hammer forged barrels, They're about as slick as they can be. It won't hurt to break in such a barrel, and most...

I never replaced any parts, but I think most parts in the action would work. From a No 4, that is.

CAse separation is a real possibility with those heavily used rifles. I don't think many jungle...

The "real" jungle carbine was the No 5, which is inscribed with an electric pencil on the left side of the action. They're ferocious muzzle-blast wise and recoil-wise if you use ball ammo. Also...

Can't answer the first, as I don't have a triangular barrel, and likely never will...can't see any advantage to it. Kinda like the Leupold scope with the curve in the objective lens...???

I solved the problem of cleaning .22 rimfire bores...I never clean them. Well, maybe not "never," since I run a brush through them every five years or so.

A clean .22 bore, in my experience,...

Savage, if you're looking for a shooter. They ain't pretty, but they are mostly tack-drivers for factory guns.

If the rifle will shoot at 100, it'll also shoot at 300. I've owned some Remingtons before and they shot fine. I've know a guy who shoots p-dogs at well past 300 yards regularly with a .223 using a...

If you intend to shoot those heavier bullets, make sure to check the twist rate. Savage MAY be slower, like a 12-twist, can't remember. I don't think that slow of a twist will stabalize a heavy...

If I weren't so heavily invested in the .223, I might opt for the .204. But, I"ve got all the stuff for a .223, including bullets, brass, etc.

Well, I think I screwed up on the 12mm x 28 thing. And I'm not sure if I remember correctly on the AR flash hider. And if he got one for an AR it would be too small for the 6.5mm Mauser.

The reason I said I thought it would fit is because I "THINK" I screwed an AR flash suppressor on a Swedish Mauser a long time back. At least that's my memory.

Do Martinis count? Got some .22s, also a 1895 Marlin in 45-70 and a Western Auto (Marlin 336) in 30-30.

My favorite is a Savage 99 in .300 Savage. GREAT round and great rifle, made in 1942. I...

Don't know what the burning kind is, but if you seat the bullet more deeply, it might work...or farther out.
