I like this one too; I find the airflow methods of alignment provide better control than the visual ones. In post #19 I described a way to do it that doesn't require a compressor.

Here's how I do it: I put the gas block and gas tube in place, close to final position. Then I take a 2-foot piece of 1/8" ID aquarium tubing and slip it over the gas tube in the receiver (wet it...

Excellent post. There's a name for this, called the Dunning-Kreuger Effect. Basically it means that you have to know something about a topic before you can know how little you know about it.

You could get a C&R (curio and relics) FFL, which would allow you to have a Mosin (and dozens of other firearms that are classified as C&R) shipped to your home address.

Hey sorry to jump in the middle of this thread, but your post got me wondering: what material is used to make a cast of the chamber?
Thanks!

I think the clue to answer your mystery is in the retained weight of the bullet. The higher velocity probably caused the bullet to fragment into smaller pieces and penetrate less.

I tried an Ares Armor polymer receiver when they went on sale several months back. I was pleasantly surprised as far as milling--the plastic to be removed is softer than the polymer and a different...

Any interest for some 6.5 Grendel Barrels?

I already have an AR15 in 6.5 Grendel--and I highly recommend it. This is one of the calibers that works with an unmodified lower-- so you can set up a Grendel upper assembly, buy a magazine for...

Here's a suggestion that's a little out in left field but it might fit the bill for low volume hunting and high-volume range time: how's about an AR15 chambered for one of the 6.5mm rounds (Grendel...

Agreed. A good Mosin is very accurate (just ask all those dead Germans in Leningrad). But it's a crap shoot unless you have a chance to pick through a crate. Beware of counterbored muzzles.

Agreed about the M44, they are a ton of fun to shoot: LOUD, lots of recoil, and 2 feet of flame out the front.

But for SHTF, the SKS wins--a 10-shot semi beats a 5-shot bolt action.

Agreed, I was shocked at what a good value mine was, a Romanian TTC from J&G Sales. Like a 1911 but smaller and lighter; the 7.62x25 is a very hot round. Ammo getting hard to find though.
