That sounds like a good summary commentary on the failed United States Government to me.LOL,
now THAT'S the truth! Great idea, well intended and inspired, and yet it seems to have died off
and left a ...

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

That is right, the last unit I was assigned to before my retirement in the Army was a Artillery
Unit. With 105m & 155mm mobile cannons. Even though we all wore muffs we still were instructed
to keep o...

Here's another picture of the blast from a muzzle brake....I also have a .30-378 with an on-off
brake...although the recoil reduction is welcomed when the brake is "on", the concussion is

I am glad I read all the posts. I was just about to advise you to have a gunsmith check the
hammer for eveness. Many of the Italian black powder replica guns have hammers that are cast or

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

As far as headspace, I would not be overly concerned. I've yet to see a Turk w/ headspace
issues. As far as your safety, all 95,96, and 98 actions safeties swing from left (fire) to top
(pin lock), 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 why...
