Posted in thread: Enough "what scope do I get". How about theory on 03-21-2017 at 08:49 AM
I think the answer you're looking for is exit pupil. The pupil of most people's eyes enlarge or
dilate to about 5mm in low light, and a max of about 7mm in complete darkness. The low light
number is w...

There's also a couple little tricks I do to enhance accuracy & reliability in addition.
Radiusing or rounding the bottom rear of the bolt will allow it to cycle smoother with less
force. That's import...

The pre travel is takeup. You can easily reduce the takeup by carefully drilling the top of the
sear or top of trigger (VERY carefully as there's precious little "room" on the top of the
trigger at fr...

I'm NOT directly involved in this epic internet fight, but feel the need to share some of my
thoughts based on my experiences. Any pistol when full length has to have different compression

Mongo I believe you saw a Mossberg instead of a Marlin if it had a black flip down hinged
forend tip. Mossbergs offered several models with that feature from the factory. I don't
believe the stock end...
Posted in thread: Kahr trigger pull on 03-13-2017 at 04:43 PM
I LOVE the Kahr CM-40, and it's identical to the CM-9 for all practical purposes. The thing is,

It's MY experience that a cheap scope is worse than a complete waste of time, it'll also cost

shot at a buck...

Posted in thread: Marlin Model 60: 10-shot groups on 03-09-2017 at 02:36 AM
The best I remember the ammo for that exact 10 shot group was Eley Tenex, Eley Benchrest Gold,
RWS R50, or Federal Gold Metal Ultra Match. It performed just about the same with the above
Posted in thread: Marlin Model 60: 10-shot groups on 03-06-2017 at 07:50 PM
Here's what I strive for. When I can get repeatable 10 shot groups like this from a bombproof
rest at 50 yards, I'm content to sit back & grin! My nephew LOVES to do trick shots with a
couple of my he...
