Lead in micro groove Marlin

Well, Marlin changed the rifling for some reason. If you fired a lead bullet at a slow speed, it might work but anything over 1000 fps will lead the barrel fast. With mine, I could not even hit...

Marlin

I have a Marlin 1894 that I bought in the 80s and still have. I always wanted a 357 rifle and this one fits the bill nicely. Can't shoot lead bullets in it though because of the micro groove...

Luger mainspring

Thanks, I finally got the spring in and the Luger running. I think part of my problem was someone had put an overly long spring in it. I took off 3 coils and the pistol did not improve, so I...

Luger still fails to feed

A friends Luger that I am trying to fix is still giving me problems. Some one in the past re barreled a 1916 Erfurt to 30 kal Luger. Of course I don't know what else was done to it.
It cycles and...

luger

Not my gun so I can't reload for it. I do think also that the ammo is the problem. I am thinking of taking a coil or two off the recoil spring and see if that would help. Where would be a good...

Thanks for the tip, the pistol is in real good shape internally, he has tried a different magazine with the same result, I tend to lean that the slide is going back far enough to let the ejector kick...

Luger

Thanks for the tips, I looked at the ejector and not having another one to compare it with and not having worked on many Lugers, I don't know what I should be looking for, if the ejector is the...

Luger

A friend of mine bought a 1916 Erfurt Luger in 30 Cal Luger made in 1916, looks pretty good however it stove pipes every round that is fired. He bought another magazine and that does not help. He...

Winchester finishes

I was thinking more along the lines of the late 1800s-early 1900 finishes.

Barrel and receiver

Thanks for all who responded. I got the rifle real cheap and it looks so good, that I hate to see it without markings, it is just a dandy deer rifle. I do a lot of trading so although I have not...

Winchester Barrel markings needed

I have a pre 64 Winchester 1894 carbine that some idiot polished off all the markings on the barrel and off the tang on the receiver, luckily he had sense enough not to polish off the SN. I need to...

Primers

After paying $5 each for 2 boxes of large pistol primers the day before, I walked into a gun store I don't usually go to and walked out with 1000 for $30.95. That was his last box. I bet he is...

All my 1911s seem to like 5 Grains of Red Dot with a 200 grain cast bullet.

190

I think I found the problem and it had nothing to do with sear or triggers, etc. The hammer is coming too far forward and battering the feeding housing and has pushed it in quite a bit as well as...

Heavy Thompson

When I first got to Vietnam, I walked into the arms room and there was a pristine Thompson all sparkling blue and walnut. That's for me I said. Loaded 400 rounds in stick magazines and went for a...

trigger work 190

Everything looks normal except when you have the trigger housing and look at it from the rear, the arm on the disconnector that catches the step on the back of the sear is bent toward the left. Is...

190

Everything seems to work properly. I shoot it, it cycles back and forward, as far as I can tell but the sear does not catch the hammer to cock it. When I cycle it by hand, it works normally. I...

Winchester 190

I wish I could help you, I need help myself. I let one of my son's friends talk me into looking at his model 190. It is about to drive me nuts. When I work the bolt the hammer cocks everytime but...
