    Explain this staked bushing to me....Is it not just a double threaded bushing?What that means
    is, after the bushing is tightened, a staking tool (similar to a punch) is used to deform the
    metal in a f...

    Can't get the damned grip bushing unfrozen from the frame. Any hints on how to unlock the
    Loc-tite?:mad:Try localized heat. A soldering gun or pencil-type torch should work ok.

    I've been building custom grips for them for several years now and I really like them. I carry
    one as my CCW and liked it enough to use it to qualify for my CHL with it. I reload for mine
    using mostly...

    .270 Win. but I'm also a big fan of the old 7.62x54R Soviet round and the 8x57 Mauser, both of
    which predate the .30-06 with similar ballistics.

    I've been building grips for them for a couple of years now and I feel that they're one of the
    best deals going for a surplus pistol and they're the perfect size (IMO) for a CCW. Recoil can
    be a tad s...

    It's my understanding that the Rifleman series and the VX-1 are being imported from Asia, but I
    could be mistaken. I got an email about it awhile back, I'll see if I still have it.

    The police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our development, and they cannot even
    protect themselves in many cases. It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his
    family, and th...

    Tim, is that the blue liquid stuff that Brownells sells? It says it will remove rust and grease
    as well. I can't afford the $200.+ the local gunsmith would charge to reblue it.Yes it is. You
    can get i...
