    It seems to me that from a ballistician's viewpoint that barrel length should be the distance the bullet travels while sealed to the tube. I guess you can still argue about freebore and pressure...

    I have owned three Indians, had to sell the '30 Scout to pay taxes, still have the Junior Scout in the picture and a 741 bored out to 37 cu in. I left them all stock, hand shift, rocker clutch and LH...

    Aluminum is first plated with electroless zinc, then copper plated. Once you have that, you can put on almost any plate you want. The nickel has brighteners that smooth over fine scratches and make...

    Barrel Length Measuremwnts

    Why doesn't the cylinder length count in barrel length in a revolver? For that matter, why isn't chamber length deducted from a rifle's measurement? The bullet doesn't start from the breech face.

    You got it. As they say about only counting with horseshoes and hand grenades, in a lot of work "close" means "wrong." The machinist I cited in my last post was mostly making one of a kind production...

    A recent study concluded that the more satisfied a person was with his or her work, the poorer the quality actually was. The best workers were never satisfied. I had the somewhat mixed privilege of...

    I have read that pre-european takeover the aborigines had a controlled burn program. The St. Louis area Nature Conservancy has had one on their lands for a number of years.

    An amazing piece of work. Pretty much settles the question with real data instead of guesses. One surprise was how much velocity a .357 mag can get in a 2" or 3" barrel. Of course the muzzle blast...

    I was specifically referring to Olympic rapid fire pistols where an additional mechanism would be kept clean and serviced. As close as those contests can be, a few degrees less of muzzle jump could...

    I wonder if a weight could be made to move, probably operated by the slide or gas that would cancel some of the upward recoil. One that moved with the slide and back when the slide returned to...

    I agree. If anything needs to be changed, it is some people's attitude. Professionalism carries with it standards of behavior. Robert's Rules of Order, the rules of formal debate, and so on, have...
