    Regarding Dr. Einstein: The math only gets complicated near the speed of light. Simple
    Newtonian physics is entirely adequate for bullet velocities--just add the velocity of the
    rifle to the velocity ...

    This is a fair price nowadays, and if it's in decent shape you won't be sorry. These are
    extremely accurate rifles with mild recoil, and the straight-pull bolt action is quick and
    smooth. This is one ...

    Just a heads-up when you take your Type 53 to the range: the noise and muzzle flash are
    ridiculous. You'll definitely attract some attention.

    Ensure that the firing pin retaining pin is installed correctly and allowing the firing pin to
    travel fully forward.That was going to be my guess. I once had a BCG where the f.p. retaining
    pin had bee...

    I like this one too; I find the airflow methods of alignment provide better control than the
    visual ones. In post #19 I described a way to do it that doesn't require a compressor.

  • Posted in thread: how to align your gasblock on 02-19-2015 at 12:45 AM
    Here's how I do it: I put the gas block and gas tube in place, close to final position. Then I
    take a 2-foot piece of 1/8" ID aquarium tubing and slip it over the gas tube in the receiver
    (wet it to m...

    This is either internet lore or inexcusably poor QC on the part of the barrel
    manufacturer.Exactly--this claim just doesn't pass the sniff test, it's simply not plausible
    from a metallurgical it engin...

    When we don't admit what we don't know, we stay at the worst stage, unconscious incompetence.
    We are unaware or unwilling to admit what we don't know. Ignorance is not a crime, but not
    recognizing it...

    Here's an idea for a soon to be college kid who might need a hobby to provide a break from
    school work from time to time. Pick out a lower receiver and build the rifle from scratch with
    it being just ...

    You could get a C&R (curio and relics) FFL, which would allow you to have a Mosin (and dozens
    of other firearms that are classified as C&R) shipped to your home address.It's an easy and
    cheap ($35) pr...
