    Headspace

    Very interesting comments guys, I really can't see a .223 round in a 7.62 x 39 chamber blowing the gun up, but I agree with the comment, a bloody interesting case shape. How about a more modern design though, like the AR15 platform? Or the AR-10? Surely by their very design the cartridge cannot...

    Headspace

    Okay guys, I know what headspace is, anyone chambering a barrel should know what headspace is and God knows, I have done dozens. My question is quite serious and borne of a real curiosity: What is going to happen if your headspace is +.100" so over by a hundred thou? I do realise that some...

    Accuracy AR

    It is still a "fly".

    Adjusting a scope rail

    That could work (I have a Mill or two). AND I have a couple adapters, I will give it a try and report back.

    Adjusting a scope rail

    Irrespective one end or the other is too high so do you have a solution or just a throwaway comment?

    Adjusting a scope rail

    I have a scope that I want to use on a rifle (AR15) but the snag is it needs lifting at the rear to get it on centre. Unfortunately, because it is an AR 15 upper I cannot just substitute a 20 MOA scope rail so was looking at picatinny/picatinny adapters, there isn't one I can see that has...

    7mm cartridge choices

    I like the 7mm 08 idea but I know someone with a .284 reamer so that looks like the route I will go. I will put pics up when I am done. Thanks everyone for your contributions, I appreciate the input.

    7mm cartridge choices

    I like this idea, the only query I have is: Is a 7mm barrel suitable for a .284 build? Sorry but I am in total ignorance of 7mm calibres and the variants, I like that the case head is .308 dimensions though as that saves me doing any grinding.

    7mm cartridge choices

    :-) You have a head start, which as we all know is an "unfair advantage" furthermore, you can shoot handgun with abandon, here in the UK we have to jump through many hoops to be able to do that(I have jumped those hoops) but I cannot shoot handgun in my back yard, Rifle I can so I do! It's all...

    7mm cartridge choices

    Target only. In answer to the questions posed by @thermite I am "of an age" so basically fraying at the edges. Been shooting for 53 years though so had some practice, still shoot every single day, yes - even in England this is possible but my circumstances are not of the norm. What about the...

    7mm cartridge choices

    I have a 7mm Barrel, it is a match grade 7mm fluted stainless barrel. I have had it for a while now and I have two choices, Chop it up and use the material for something OR turn it into something. I have both long and short Remington actions (stainless) and a Steyr Mannlicher action that I could...

    Getting the barrel off

    They do indeed it turns out. Pic of the tool: I made something along these lines but from a bit of EN24T and Colphos. the whoe thing pulls together and squeezes the O rings into the rifling: real snug fit in the barrel:

    Getting the barrel off

    It is an Alpha.

    Getting the barrel off

    No, as my original post it is an Alfa. Is a S&W held on the same way?

    Getting the barrel off

    Just thought I would post this follow up. I removed the barrel by sawing through the shroud and barrel then the shroud slid off over the barrel. Once the shroud was removed the barrel unscrewed easily. The barrel is clearly fitted once the shroud is in place and the only way this can happen is...

    No they don't have a barrel pin.

    Getting the barrel off

    I think this is it, I am convinced this is how this is done.

    Getting the barrel off

    This one has me, I know this will end up me destroying the shroud but I would rather not. How do you get the barrel off a fully shrouded Alfa revolver, it is identical to this one: There is no "Nut" or "collar" like the Dan Wesson Or Smith 327. The only way I can imagine this happening is a...

    Mauser 98 Action Truing

    I have done quite a lot with Mauser actions and the advice given above to just go shoot it is good, I know, we really like tinkering and sometimes you can get out of your depth or just go too far. This is from a rifle brought to me some years back, I keep it around as a sort of demonstration...

    Shotgun Choke Tap

    Thank you everyone for your time. @milgunsmith I have had the tap on order with Dave Manson (whose fine chambering reamers I use) for a good while now. Brownells want the equivalent of $345 for something Dave Manson will charge me $150. I wouldn't pay it on principle. Yes I will pay duty, being...
