Those RWS 48 rifles are very powerful but the mainsprings break quite often. They still shoot but power drops off. A section of about 3 to 5 coils breaks off one end of the mainspring and although...

Those 'old' 'pumpers'....

Those old Benjamin and Sheridan pump up pellet rifles were well made, and because they were they are worth having resealed if you can find a GOOD airgun smith with correct seal replacement parts. If...

You probably already have, but SCRUB that CZ barrel one good time preferably before first shots. Not sure what CZ slathers inside their new barrels but it doesn't like to come out easy!

30's.....

Don't know how relative it is but 30 Golds and 30 Bergers shot great out of my 9" twist 17 Ackley Hornet with 4198 powder.

I don't paint with that broad a brush. I only said I had problems with ONE 77/22 Hornet.
At present there are more Rugers in my safe than any other brand rifle or pistol including 77Mark II's,...

no s---!

My CZ experience was pretty much by owning and shooting quite a few CZs that friends owned as well. One friend purchased a dozen or two at a time from CZ as he owned a custom rifle company, and...

Ok really, had one and it would print 3 shots into 1/2" inch or so. Then it might print another 1/2"-3/4" group... an...

....and....

Many years ago I decided the 'too expensive' 22 Magnum would still be fun to play with so I bought a Marlin 782 bolt clip magazine rifle for about a hundred bucks. I rationalized that I could take it...

22 Mag 'returning'?...

I love the 17HMR on ground squirrels and have shot enough of it to result in covering the floor of a few rental 4WD Suburban vehicles with empty fired casings. However I purchased a Ruger American...

My most used pair of pliers were missing. They and a screwdriver and hammer were the only tools the family members in my household would ever borrow out of all the tools I have. I confronted my wife...

Customer service...... no help...

CS was very polite and spent about 5 minutes looking through his data, but could not find the TPI numbers.
Easy enough to pull the barrel I guess. The few barrels I've pulled off 77/22 Hornets were...

Ruger 77/357 & 77/44 barrel threads??

Anyone know what the threads and shank specs are? Thx. Dreaming about a few tinkering projects: heavy match grade 44 mag barrel, maybe a 357 B&D, etc.
Dreaming is cheap, doing costs a lot more....

Same barrel in 17 Mach IV.....

..... shoots as good or better than I can hold it, as evidenced by a bench rest experienced friend putting 4 out of 5 shots in same hole at 100 yards. Fantastic barrel in my opinion. I've only shot...

Bolt lug contact...

I would be concerned if one of the two lugs had zero contact. If both have at least some contact I don't have concern about it. I do clean and lubricate the back of the bolt lugs and the abutments in...

Browning 1885 30/30 .....

There is (was?) a Browning (Miroku) 1885 in 30/30 28" octagon available nearby... been anguishing over it. I like a 30/30, and never have owned an 1885. Had a Browning 78 in 25/06 years ago, 28"...

45ACP rifle barrel.....

"Rebarreled a couple a few weeks ago to 357 mag and to 45acp just to try that out. As much as I like the rimfire No.1's, I have to admit the 45acp is very mild in a 27" barrel; kinda like a 22...

Winchester brass....

I think . . .

It must be the brass going by additional input here. I was told by a Cabelas gun guy that newer Winchester AMMO is made in China. I have no idea if true. However the almost identical splits in an...
