  1. Rem Oil PRO

    Gun Cleaning
    I bought two bottles of Rem Oil Pro from Brownells several months ago and noticed the squirt bottle didn't squirt worth a darn. Took the plunger assy out, poured out the liquid, and saw a 2" layer of gooo on the bottom of the bottle. It looked like a soft, granulated paste wax (this is what...
  2. CastBoolits web site

    Bullet Casting
    Is the Castboolits web site still up? My browser can't find their web site castboolits.gunloads.com. Has it been taken down?
  3. .33 wcf

    Handloading Equipment
    Does anyone know who has the .33 WCF cartridge in their current reloading die list? I have looked in the most popular online vendors and can't find the RCBS #30501 or the Redding #80205 die sets, or any others, either. Any reliable die sources out there for this caliber?
  4. Magpul Bolt Action Mag well

    Gunsmithing
    I'm CONFUSED! Can the Magpul Bolt Action Magazine Well be installed in a factory (wood stocked) Remington M700 in .223?? If so, do you have to use the Magpul Hunter magazines or can AR15 style magazines be used. If not, why not? Disregard minor stock inleting to fit the Magpul profile in the...
  5. Stripper clip guide

    Gunsmithing
    In order to shoot the NRA National Match course with a bolt gun, the receiver must have some way to allow a 5-shot stripper clip to be inserted for the rapid fire stages. I have Win M70 target rifles with the guides factory milled. I wish to adapt a Rem M700 in .223 to shoot the course. Who...
  6. US Army marksmanship qualification

    Military News
    Is anybody interested in discussing the Army's current approach to marksmanship training and the associated qualification strategy? I currently have 5 family members serving and their marksmanship skills aren't good (by my standards - Vietnam Vet). I recently did a little Googling on 'Army...
  7. Lefever SxS shotgun question

    Gunsmithing
    What is the purpose of the 'J'-shaped bar located in the center of a Lefever SxS receiver? The Numrich catalog calls it a "trip". It is under light coil spring pressure. Is the top lever supposed to "spring back" to center position when the barrels are open?
  8. Shotshell history question

    Shotguns, Shotgunning, and Shotshell Reloading
    Before plastic wads, shotshells were loaded with felt/paper wads seated with various amounts of pressure during the handloading process. No modern recipes using plastic wads require seating pressure. Why? I read one handloader's claim that pressure is srequired to get consistent ignition...
  9. Smith & Wesson Rubber grips repair

    Gunsmithing
    I have a S&W HE Model 1903 5th change that has the right grip panel cracked. Since the grips are serial numbered to the revolver, I would like to salvage the original, correctly numbered grips. Is there an adhesive that will work on these hard rubber grips? I think it is more important to...
  10. High Standard .22 magazine dimensions

    Gunsmithing
    Does anyone know the lip spread distances on High Standard alphabet model semiauto magazines, e.g. Model B or Model HD? I have read that the later models (Supermatic, etc.) had rear lips separated 0.185" and the forward lips separated 0.230". Is this true?
  11. FFL pistol details

    General Discussion
    Does anybody know exactly what the provisions of FFL requirements are for the shipment of 19th and early 20th century firearms are? Specifically, there are countless Iver Johnson, H&R, S&W, etc., top break revolvers made for black powder use being offered through online auctions. Most sellers...
  12. .30/.338 Difference?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Is there any practical difference between the .30/.388 and the .308 Norma Magnum? Are they interchangeable? I get the impression that the .30/.338 was a US Army public relations game in the early 1960s aimed at ridiculing the intrusion of foreigners (Swedes) into US match shooting (notably...
  13. High Standard barrels

    Gunsmithing
    Does anybody know where to get replacement barrels for the High Standard Models 'H' or 'HB' semi-autos?
  14. Sig p220 refinish

    Gunsmithing
    Is there any way to refinish the aluminum frame of a Sig P220? When the factory finish is chipped/scraped/scratched is it possible to return it to original condition? Is this a problem for all alloy pistol frames? How do you handle holster wear on these frames?
  15. Ruger .22 magazines

    Handguns
    Does anyone know the interchangeability of the various .22/45 Ruger Mark family of magazines? Particularly the MK2, 3, and now 4 versions of the .22/45 Model(s)? For instance, what is the difference between Ruger part numbers 90045 and 90599 magazines? All help appreciated.
  16. Winchester 1890 rechambering

    Gunsmithing
    Can a Winchester 1890 chambered in .22 Long be rechambered to .22 Long Rifle and function normally? ie., no other parts of the rifle need to be changed?
  17. 10 gauge hulls

    Shotguns, Shotgunning, and Shotshell Reloading
    Does anybody know if Remington Yacht Club blank plastic 10 gauge hulls are suitable for reloading modern black powder components for use in 18xx Remington shotguns? It's difficult to find empty 10 gauge hulls that can be trimmed to the short 10 gauge chambers used in the Damascus barreled...
  18. Sako rifle stock

    Gunsmithing
    Does anybody know if a Sako L61 stock will fit a Sako AV barreled action? Will some other commercial stock fit the Sako AV?
  19. Loads for a 45 Long Colt

    Cowboy Loads and Guns
    I just purchased a Ruger Vaquero in a 45 long colt. I also plan of reloading some lead rounds for it. I just cast some lead bullets 230 grain for plinking. I don't plan on any competitions shooting. So I thought the 230 grain would be a good round. Saving a little on lead by not going to the...
  20. Cleaning an FNP9

    Gun Cleaning
    I just finished a 500+rd fun session with my FNP9 and found plenty of powder residue all over the inside of the frame (700X powder used with cast bullets). It's hard to reach into the nooks and crannies of the frame when the slide is off. Can I use the pressurized automotive carburetor...
