    Mosin Nagant dry firing

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the dry firing. Things are built like a tank I know but still just... always worried about having that bad luck and mine being the one that Comrade Nikolai didn't spend the time heat treating properly and boom, broken firing pin lol. Easiest thing I've found to...

    All the hype over Vortex scopes

    I can't give a 100% unbiased review, seeing as all I've owned have been older hand me down optics or cheap .22 plinker scopes. I have shot through high end Zeiss, Schmidt&Bender, and Nightforce optics while at the range and the only Vortex I own is a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50. It's on a Savage...

    Where does one go for a Mauser Action?

    Thanks for all the info and ideas everyone. I've ordered some books and a few little parts and some serious research and planning to do. First thing I need to do is hide the stock I have away. Seeing it everyday is making me want to rush the whole thing :o

    Where does one go for a Mauser Action?

    Parts, stocks, screws, slings, bayonets I have a general idea of where to get them. I've got bookmarks and am a pretty good web sleuth however trying to find a place to buy a Mauser Action seems to elude me for some reason. Long story short I always had this idea of building a new Mauser...

    NY seeks ammo sales cap

    I highly doubt it would pass, but in NY you never can tell anymore. Wonder who sells 10 round boxes of 8mm Mauser though... Oh I have a single shot 16 gauge, does that mean I can only buy 2 or 3 rounds at a time?

    22LR Tube Fed Lever Action

    Also, for what it's worth, if you scratch the paint on the Henry receiver it cleans off pretty well.

    22LR Tube Fed Lever Action

    Cheap model Henry and a Ithaca Saddlegun. No problems on either and both have some of the smoother actions I've had the opportunity to come across. Lot's of people knock the Henry due to the plastic and cheap metal, but I've had mine for awhile, it's taken normal abuse and no issues what'so'ever.

    Flashlight recommendation

    I'm a Surefire guy. Yeah they're expensive but from a customer service standpoint they've earned me as a customer. I had an old P6 Defender (Bulb based) for a long time that I used for work and personal use. Bulbs were... Less then stellar in their longevity and weren't cheap either. After...
