  1. Here's a vid of the action, same gun and hardware store branding as mine, this one is just in 12, mine's in 20.
  2. what's the theory on this? just curious.
  3. Hey All, I have a hardware store branded hammerless 20 gauge sxs manufactured by Crescent I think. It's manufactured sometime in the early 1900's and it's main quality is that It has no value so I can do whatever I want with it. Also, it has a very cool brown finish which I like because you don't see anything finished that way these days. Picked it up for about $200 shipped and transferred a few years back. I've used it sparingly for a few years as a trap skeet and hunting gun. I'd like to get it running better as I won't be upgrading it for some time and it is sometimes a pain to break open after firing and factory shells don't just fall out. do you know of any resources in slicking up these guns and what's the preferred method for polishing chambers? I will likely be replacing the stocks as well as the originals are starting to strip where the wood screws hold things together and the 100+ year old wood is soft. Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. ... as a factory takedown Chinese '97?
  5. If I were Rittenhouse I wouldn't accept any settlement that didn't include a cease and desist for use of my name or image under any circumstances by the liars. except for some very narrow and fact based things like Mr. Rittenhouse, our boss or Mr Rittenhouse spoke under condition of anonymity about his recent acquisition and liquidation of MSNBC...
  6. I watched Hatari a lot when I was a kid, before I moved to Nairobi. Driving around the savanna in an open top land cruiser looking for critters is as fun as it looks (that's how I got my profile pic). Moved back to the states when i graduated high school. Edit: I just popped it in and saw that it was filmed in Tanganyika that's what Tanzania was before merging with Zanzibar. If you look at the Kenya/Tanzania border, you'll see it does a jog around kilimanjaro, that's because the queen of England gave it to the Tzarina of Russia as a birthday present.
  7. It's been a minute, let's try this again, feel free to make an offer if you want something.
  8. My 5 year old may be a boomer, last night he requested, and was denied toast with ketchup for dinner.
  9. If you don't want political content then don't follow the following advise and search for this yourself, but I like Bill Whittle's take on this in his vid "Dammit boy's they're getting away"
  10. TV Shows that I got bored with and don't intend to finish Bonanza The Rifleman (I actually really like some of the episodes, but I just have no desire to go back and finish it) Movies I've seen once and probably won't watch again, Tombstone (great Hollywood production, I just feel like it lacks all historical context) Quigley down under. I don't feel like the acting was done well on this one. Rickman always bothers me when he's trying too hard to be evil. Not a big fan of Harry potter, but he's much more useful as an actor in a role where people believe he's the villain but isn't.
  11. If anyone can beat the British it's more British! Like we did when we decided to be not British anymore. As the captain of the serapis said when finding out he had been beat by Americans, "it's diamond cut diamond".
  12. There was a turbo prop commuter plane taking off from Aberdeen Airport about 2001, I think, it hit a flock of Canadian and snow geese, if I recall correctly approximately 21 impacts. One of the birds dislodged the windshield wiped, it flew back into the prop. The prop hit it into the cabin, where the windshield wiper found its new home in someone 's leg.
  13. I did bird strike testing on props in Wichita at my previous job. We had a 40 foot potato gun. Pushed a 4 lb chicken to the same muzzle velocity as a 45acp. We'd rain chicken all over the parking lot.
  14. Congrats on your first shoot! looks like fun!
  15. If my time is worth more than the accuracy of the rounds I'm putting together, i.e. I need to bust out a bunch of 38 special ASAP because we're going to put a bunch of it in the hill tomorrow, I just powdercoat and load. I'll get lead shavings that need to be wiped off my press every 50-100 rounds, but as far as sizing, my lee Auto Breechlock Pro has the 4th station so I factory crimp them and that sizes them in the case. cheap and low time investment, not what I would do for accuracy. If you want to save time on sizing, and you have a Lee Bullet Feeder, you can often rig those to feed into your sizing die depending on your press arrangement.
  16. Farmer Jake Holliday, "I have two guns, one for each of your disguises" Would it be inappropriate for Theo to use Tom's help to pattern his Turkey gun before Wednesday?
  17. I am in the process of stoning down my hand on my '58, mine is better now, but i still need to take some material off.
  18. timing and light primer strikes where what I sent mine in for, also the grip didn't fit right. my theory on the light primer strikes is that because CA uses the small frame grip, and hammer geometry, the spring looses mechanical advantage when they just add length to the hammer to make it work on their large frame guns. normally, you would redo your grip geometry on a large frame gun to give you the necessary mechanical advantage. I do appreciate that I can have a k frame gun with a j frame grip for CC though. New spring has had no issues with light primer strikes and now that I've cut a coil or two off, the trigger pull isn't ridiculous, still heavier than the factory spring though. when I first put the XP spring on, my wife had to use both hands to dry fire it. you should consider the Barami Hip Grip for CA, I got mine for $8 on Ebay, makes my total carry package 28 Oz for a 6 shot .357. carries real nice.
  19. I sent it to them first still had light primer strikes when it came back, in fairness to them, they fixed the other issues I was asking them to address.
  20. if you have a long pin and use the screw method, and can reinsert it into the gun without having to move the pin to the other side of the shoe, no vise required.
  21. literally posted this this morning should have checked here first! only thing I'll add is that for the first method, depending on the gun, you may be able to lay the assembly in the gun and remove the pin instead of using a vice and grips. my charter arms was this way.
