I've got a Police model too. I recall having that same problem, only I haven't shot it in a long time because I can not get the durn thing to fire reliably at all. One cylinder works fine, the next I...

LOL, now THAT'S the truth! Great idea, well intended and inspired, and yet it seems to have died off and left a false image of itself behind. I think probably somewhere around 1865...when the Federal...

Oh, yeah, just what I've been telling y'all along...Vermont rocks! At least it would if we weren't being invaded by liberal rich Flatlanders.
Anyway, I didn't even realize we were the LAST...

I can't say I've ever heard anything bigger than a 70(75?)mm Mountain Howitzer going off in person. I just always remembered the part about keeping your mouth open from the descriptions I've read of...

Huh...I would have thought it would be the other way around. Artillery crew men (and others in the vicinity) during WWII had to keep their mouths open during big barrages, or risk getting their...

Now, that is good advice! Thanks a lot; I never would have thought of that. "Practical" isn't my strongest point! I haven't had a chance to mess with it yet, luckily...I was just going to do it by...

Okay, update. I believe I've solved my mystery, for the most part. The safety on my rifle is indeed designed to clear a center-mount scope. Why on earth someone chose to install it on an...

It could be...but it surely LOOKS like a piece that was installed deliberately that way. It isn't even the same shape as the standard ones...it's less "blocky" than normal Mauser/1903 safetys. In...

Turkish Mauser, odd safety-lever?

I have an old Mauser 98, that I bought a few years ago. It is stamped "Made in Turkey" on the barrel, along with the importer, CAI of St. Albans, VT (my home state).
I'm curious about the numbers...

Yeah...I thought it was pretty much taken for granted that a true muzzle brake increases the actual decibels directed back towards the shooters ear, and even more so to the folks standing next to...

So, what? I can't take the stock off the gun? What the hell am I supposed to do if I drop in a puddle or something? Let it rust? I've managed to get everything off every other gun I ever owned, so...

SKS bolt/stock/firing pin, cosmo removal...YAY!!!

Okay, for the benefit of those who don't feel like reading and sifting through my entire (ridiculously long) post, here's the bare-bones of it:

1.) Any ideas on getting cosmoline out of nooks and...

Sorry this is so long (again). I was going to put this after, but I changed my mind.
There is a (very) faint line around the nipple, about 2/3 of the way toward the base. It's hard to pick out...

Thanks (to everyone). I can't try any new brands until I get a day off, but I did go out side and try using the hammer to push the caps down. I only tried 4 caps, because this is a "residential"...

I'm hoping that someone can shed a little light on a little problem I've having with my brand-new replica .36cal...

Let's say that the guys in the Civil War never seemed to have much problem running around with pouches of caps hanging off their belts...if all that jostling and bouncing wouldn't do it, then I doubt...
