    I believe that Clyde had no use for the Thompson. It didn't have the power he required. He used
    the BAR.

    Don't forget the puny caliber, after the rifle twist was changed to 1;8, the bullet lost its
    inherent ability to tumble. This required the double/triple tap to dispatch those who need
    killing. Remembe...

    If it had been hard to begin with, the repair wouldn't have been needed.

    I would not even consider the .303. They have the trajectory of a rainbow. Not good for long
    range work.How old are you? Are you done growing? If you are, then a good way to see if your
    gun fits is to...

    I can read, you idiots can't. Everyone says "take it to a gunsmith" It's dangerous"A round gets
    stuck often enough for mr to post a good safe remedy.If you don't like, quit reading it.

    Actually the Eddystone is the least popular. The Winchester is the most popular and scarce. The
    Eddystone is prone to breakage when the bbl is removed. Make a releif cut before unscrewing the
    bbl. It ...

    You never did say what type of weapon it is. If it is a bolt action rifle. Hold the bullet in
    w/ the brass rod. Invert the gun and shake all the powder out. Turn it muzzle up and pour in
    some light oi...

  • Posted in thread: 1911 build question... on 09-01-2009 at 08:58 PM
    My first build was a Chinese 1911. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on stuff I was
    throwing away. The thing I learned was that you can't polish a turd. I made a vise to pull the
    rails in and some...

    Don't listen to MR. Stalking. He is probably a pro. I have had experience with old lathes. You
    don't want to rebuild one. The ways are nearly impossible to straighten out once they get worn.
    They can ...

    My buddy has a grizzly. It is belt drive, but it seems to be a good machine. Mine is a Chinese
    "Birmingham" It is a good machine, gear driven but it goes too fast. It turn 70 rpm, 270 and
    then up to 1...
