    Air Rifle Suppressor, NOT a legal question.

    Air rifles I have a Gamo Whisper, CFR, fixed barrel, .177 caliber air rifle. It has an integrated suppressor (Gamo calls it an air dampener) is not removable. If it were not legal it certainly couldn't be sold over the counter like the major stores do at the moment. :neener:

    Thompson Center hawken rusty barrel potential problems

    If it were me, I would run a bore light down the barrel to see just what the problem is before trying any "fixes"...just my opinion.

    Aquarium tubing for caps

    JB Weld and hammer notch A guy on YouTube swears by the practice of filling in the hammer (nose) notch with JB Weld and smoothing it down flush with sandpaper when dry. According to him. the hammer notch pulls the spent caps back and tend to fall down into the space between the hammer and...

    Nice job!!!! Ephraim Kibbey I'm glad the Brasso worked for you. Remember to put a coat of paste wax over the brass to help keep it from tarnishing prematurely. Again...very nice job!! Hawk

    Polishing cylinder arbor hole Cooldill An easy way to polish the inside arbor cylinder hole is to take a small dowel...cut a groove in one end...slide in some emery cloth ( in the groove) and chuck the dowel in a hand drill and polish away...but don't go over board. Hope that helps. :)

    Stains I would recommend the obvious such as Brasso or if that doesn't work a Cratex polishing wheel using fine grit? Would have to see the staining to be more helpful. Congrats on the rescue!!!!!

    I'm new to air guns too! I too have turned away from RF shooting...not for lack of ammo (I have plenty) but for lack of an outdoor shooting range. Here in California it seems they are bent on closing down as many ranges as they can. Three of the closest and best in Southern California have been...

    percussion cap shortage? or overpriced?

    Cabelas has Remington caps in both #10 & #11 at the moment online but they are way overpriced at $80/1000. Regardless, I bought 1,000 of each because I simply don't like the CCI brand. Luckily I had a $25 gift certificate so that took care of the damn HazMat fee.

    Kentucky rifle kit, and questions.

    The older CVA Kentuckies are very accurate with roundballs but I have found they are just as good with the Lee cast bullet that looks like a hollowbase wadcutter. I've had three of these rifles since 1980 and still have two of the original three...and yes the twist is 1:66 inches. Cleaning the...

    why did the .30 Remington AR fail?

    The .308 Win was mentioned as popular because it was military, but it was made available to the public as a commercial round before it was adopted by the military, so the .223 Rem should qualify. :neener:

    savage 24's

    dbalthrop...which model are you referring to? The 24V models had blued barrels and the receivers were color case hardened...stocks were walnut. (at least that's how my 24V .357Mag/20 gauge and .30-30/20 gauge are configured)
