    I have seen a lot of guns with cracked receivers and drilled gas ports. There are some very
    good gunsmiths, and there are a whole lot more people who paid for a license and put up a sign.
    , so take ca...

    It's real easy to make a chamber gauge out of an old credit card. Just cut it to the right
    width. I used that when I was buying and selling guns and some dealers would get nervous, and
    rightfully so, ...

    Remington has been making 870s in .410 for over 50 years. They just aren't making any new ones
    right now. There are 11 on GunBroker. Like left handed guns, they seem to make a run whenever

    Remington 11-87, Winchester SX3, Browning Silver, Beretta 300 in gas actions. Benelli and

    mixed reviews on ...

    Highly condition dependent. All the Savage Stevens guns -311, B, B-ST - started with the same
    action and they added features. Some of the pre-impressed checkering models looked fairly
    decent too. They...

    I won't own one. The holes get grubby fast.

    Yes they Almost always unscrew. No they are not all the same thread. If you get one that does
    screw in they are always long and have to be cut off and polished to match the inside of the
    barrel.This i...

    When you have made over 4,000,000 over 52 years, yes sometimes they do break parts. The same
    guy posted on three different forums, you can tell by his picture avatar. Parts are no problem
    though, beca...
