Question about laws regarding transferring Firearms.

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 18:16:38 GMT

I live in CT, so considering the relatively strict gun laws for the state, I wanted to question those of you more knowledgeable about Firearms and gun related laws in general. Basically, my father has a small Sundance 25acp handgun that was purchased legally sometime in the 80s and an older...

Luciano Rota Stocks

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:51:48 GMT

Does anyone have both stocks for a Luciano Rota model 83, 12 ga. O/U? The gun was imported by Navy Arms and is no longer in business. I have uncovered every stone on the internet with no luck. Just wondering if someone might be able to help me out.

Progressive press OAL variations

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:33:12 GMT

Hello and good day to all, I’m new to reloading, I learned the basics on my neighbors RCBS Rockchucker press that he’s had for 20 plus years and he loves them so much he has two of them, so of course he wanted me to get one too but I wanted progressive, so I bought a Lee Loadmaster to further learn...

Archery Related Sub Forum

Having been a member here and an avid shooter/hunter, I was wondering, even though this is a firearm forum, if it would be possible to add a sub forum/topic area for achery related topics, maybe under The Hunt section? I feel that many members here would appreciate having the option to discuss...

Winchester Bonded .40 S&W... same as Winchester USA .40 JHP?

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 05:47:37 GMT

Back in 2014 I remember seeing Winchester BJHP .40 going for $20/50 rd box. I was tempted to buy a bunch of it back then, but decided to just grab one box. Well, the thoughts come back and I'm having trouble finding the same ammo, at least in the same box. There's plenty of .40 WWB JHP ammo...

Need help understanding time/register dates on Armslist site re stolen gun

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 01:09:29 GMT

I had a hand gun stolen yesterday morning. I reported this to sheriff, so far no interest in this and getting run around. My neighbor suggested I look on Armslist. There is a gun listed exactly like mine on that same day. However, the time it says it was listed is not in sync w real time. This...

So that new Ruger Security-9...

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 00:16:25 GMT

Personally, I'm shocked at it's $379 MSRP, for a mid-size, striker-fired polymer wondernine. I've seen listings on Gunbroker for $275-$325, which again, astonishes me. Has anyone had personal experience with the pistol yet? Is it worth buying, or no?

New to me SAA Navy Arms

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 00:01:51 GMT

I found this almost new condition .45 LC at my local shop. It is Navy Arms made in 2002 according to the date code stamp on the frame (BS). I cannot find a Uberti stamp anywhere on it, so I am not sure of the make. I was under the impression that all Navy Arms revolvers were Uberti. It is...

S&W Model 1... safe to shoot?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 23:06:07 GMT

I was watching Ian of Forgotten Weapons Q&A video earlier today and one of the questions he got was what .22 Short ammunition could be used today to shoot the S&W Model 1 revolver that was made for black powder .22 Short, which to Ian's knowledge (and my own) is no longer made. Ian's response...

Balvar 8 mount value

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 22:07:15 GMT

Several months ago I bought a 722 in 244 Rem with a Blavar 8 scope in a Krusky Bros. adjustable mount. Everything is in very good shape except the scope glass is a little yellowed and suffers from the lack of coatings. I’m going to replace the scope and mounts with a Weaver K6 in Tally rings and I...

Pico Laser stability issue?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:51:29 GMT

So I'm still loving my Beretta Pico, but have discovered that the built in laser may not be stable. After getting it sighted in at ten yards I came to the range a few days later and it was way off to the left and low by about 10-12 inches. Got it sighted back in and it shot just fine, but I'm...

MAS-39 and/or MAS-49 . . . what can you tell me.

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:47:47 GMT

The short story is I have cause to be interested in a rifle that will chamber the 7,5x54 French cartridge. That has lead me to research on the MAS-39 and MAS-49. Given the scarcity and price I probably won't be buy one, but thought I'd post here to see if anyone has experience with these...

Hello everyone. I bought a AO Thompson 1927A1 used rifle yesterday. If what I have read about the serial number the year the rifle was made in 1975 (1 of 937 made that year) This was also the first year they were made for civilian sales.

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 19:08:13 GMT

Hey guys. One of my dream guns has been an HK USP in .45. Wife of the year bought me one for birthday and mentioned that the barrel could be swapped out for a .40 S&W barrel and the gun could switch to .40 easily. I was not aware of this but Im a bit leery of just ordering one. There is not a...

Alternative to Ballistol?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 18:23:17 GMT

Does anybody know an alternative CLP to Ballistol that has a better scent? I would also prefer the alternative be bio-degradable and non-carcinogenic like Ballistol is. Ballistol is a great product but the funky smell when using indoors is a problem, any suggestions? Note: Not interested in...

Preferred home defense gun

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 16:43:47 GMT

Yes, I'm digging up an age old discussion. What is your preferred gun for home defense purposes. Obviously, there is no right answer and each person's living situation will dictate their choice. Such as: if you have children living in your home and other houses close proximity to yours, you may not...

Enfield No2 Mk1*

Last week my local gunshops owner phoned me to tell me he bought a collection from someone going to the retirement home. He remembered me asking for a webley top break revolver. I got me a bargain i think: bought a browning gp 9 mm pistol looking like new, webley mk iv .38 s&w and an other...

safari charlie - anyone used this stuff

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 15:09:18 GMT

A friend asked me to try this out and I was skeptical. Grandpa told me that something good for everything is probably good for nothing. Not looking for a debate on other products, just interested in learning if someone out there has a history that says it works over a long period of time. ...

Careful what you use to clean your bore

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:11:42 GMT

I'll put this here for max exposure. A good friend of my brother is rather dismayed. A preventable bummer. He has been doing some competitive longer range shooting. The rifle is an Accuracy International in 6.5 x 47. It has 2000 rounds through it. Up front,I'll say it seems he did...

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:00:53 GMT

I am NOT wanting a debate for or against National Reciprocity. I am looking for a convincing way to get my fellow gun group members to stop and think about it. They currently follow the NRA without any thought. Living in NC means we have it pretty good and I can only see this dragging us...

m1 garand gas cylinder lock/threaded for brake

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 05:58:01 GMT

I recently installed a IER scope on my shooter Garand. I was not pleased with my inability to shoot the peep the way I used to, and the scout scope brings my shooting back up to par. To make same work, I had to raise the comb with an accessory pad. I shoot it much better at distance,...

A family member is getting into reloading. He will be reloading a handful of cartridges which I can give plenty of recommendations on like 30-06, 44mag, among others. However, I have zero experience with the 6.5 creedmore. His rifle is a ruger precision. Nightforce nxs 8x32 scope He will...

Mini14 Sight

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:38:22 GMT

So, I've got a hankering for a mini 14, no good reason, don't need to discuss it's pros or cons, that's been done. What I would like advice on is what to put on top. Due to the nature of its accuracy, I'm thinking a 2MOA red dot or smaller, but will that be enough for 150-200yd/m maximum (unless I...

Age old debate based on opinion.

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 04:22:23 GMT

Hello shooters, This is a pretty over asked question but in your "professional/unprofessional opinion" what round would you opt for to take a black bear + use as a good all around deer/varmint rifle? .308 win, .300 win mag, .270 win, or 30-06? Round cost, recoil, and accuracy out to 500ish yards...

Temp effects on brass during storage

Fire Forming

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:37:38 GMT

I have been converting 30-30 brass to 7x30 Waters using a minimal published powder load and less expensive bullet. Has anyone fire formed using Cream Of Wheat (COW) for this purpose? Is there any relationship between a published load (gun powder) and the COW? Pro's and/or con's to this ...

G96 Gun Cleaner

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:52:13 GMT

Has anyone used G-96 gun cleaner (I know it smells good). If so what is your opinion of it. I have been using Balistol and that is my preference but nobody close to where I live carry's it. I wanted to have something for back up for when I run out of Balistol. I am also open to other products...

Savage 110 Bolt Head

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:38:40 GMT

I recently ordered a new bolt head from Gun Shack for my Savage 110. I regret to say it isn't the right one. The one I purchased is for the small firing pin and mine is the large. It also did not have the bolt alignment groove. There was at least one bolt head that was a lefty that did have a...

Do You Buy Innovative Handguns?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 02:06:28 GMT

I have made several trips to the LGS to check out new handguns, and have always been interested in new designs and features. However, my last few gun purchases have all been older model or bucket list guns. It seems that even if I go to see the newest generation polymer wonder nine, I am more...

.32 S&W in a .32 S&W Long?

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:40:01 GMT

I saw on the internet (somewhere) that a guy loaded 90 grain hollow points in a .32 S&W cartridge, and shot it successfully in a pistol (semi auto) chambered for .32 S&W Long. I have a semi-auto target pistol (Benelli MP95)chambered in .32 Wadcutter. The over all length for .32 wadcutter ammo is...

Info needed about the .454 Casull

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:29:54 GMT

I've been shooting my Freedom Arms .454 Casull since the mid-eighties, as far as I can recall. Recent treads on the Firing Line discussed forcing cone damage if less than heavy enough jackets are used in revolvers such as the .454, which caused me to have a closer look at my loads. I have...

1894 Winchester Bullet Choice

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 22:54:37 GMT

A few months back several guys were shooting a few rounds thru an old Winchester 1894. Some of the ammo was jacketed, other was cast lead. One of the shooters recommended using primarily cast ammo in the gun (and go light on the use of jacketed). Was he being overly conservative, or is it best...

LC Smith Complexity

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 22:12:16 GMT

I have an old LC Smith (Hunter Arms, Grade 2E) that my grandfather gave me long ago. He was a gunsmith and warned me not to disassemble it because it was very difficult to reassemble. (If I remember correctly, the difficulty related to the hammer springs and/or lockwork). The gun is well worn...

Purchasing a handgun issue

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:43:28 GMT

Recently I have acquired a custom built rifle from Morton Gun Works from Wichita Falls, Texas.

Recoil spring testers

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 19:35:07 GMT

Was reading up on recoil spring testers . I'm shooting full-size & compact 1911's . To keep your gun in good working order knowing your recoil springs strength is a good thing . The tester seems like a good tool to have . What do you think?
