    At one time Ruger made aluminum frame single actions, don't know if they still do.

    Carbon fibers only have "strength" in tension. The resin matrix is the only thing providing strength in other directions.

    Say you took a piece of rope and soaked it in glue. After it dried you...

    I don't know why/how it happens but I've had random words in some of my posts turn into links that had nothing to do with what I was talking about. I'm going to guess it's some kind of malware thing...

    You can also put a piece of flat stock in these clamp style and use them like a regular micrometer.

    You can take off the clamp part and use just the body like a little height gage.

    You can put...

    If you consider both as only "parts" I would guess it's because when you're talking just a "barrel" a revolver barrel actually starts in the frame and a rifle barrel starts in the receiver.

    If it were mine I'd go with a nice used stock set; might even buy a donor gun since these are not usually expensive. Looking around a little it appears there might even be more than one "size"...

    Technical Publications departments produce the "owner's manual" and other general documentation related to the aircraft. There's usually no dimensions or process information given.

    That's a pretty cool overhead; make a good wall hanger. Might be something out of a tech pubs manual. What do some of the notes say?

    Acft dwgs and etc must be kept due to FAA certification...

    That's too bad. I've been to a couple Triumph facilities and they always impressed me.

    You might have a top drawing. Top dwgs typically show the acft in three views with arrow notes identifying the lofts/major assys and sometimes the list of specs applicable to that particular model...
  11. Hard to tell any scale but round and 75lbs...

    Hard to tell any scale but round and 75lbs probably indicates landing gear. Looks like you're missing some fixture details. Did this come out of the old Boeing plant?

    It will work with a hardened pin and displace metal somewhat like an arc welder. I've also used one to score a line around a carbide blank to snap it off to a certain length.

    Looking around I see...
  13. Don't know if it will work for your application...

    Don't know if it will work for your application but scoring the sides of the pin with an electro-pencil will raise enough burr to tighten it somewhat. I'm talking about the style electro-pencil that...

    When I dealt with ITAR years ago the main criteria was "first use" of the component. Generally, if the first use of the component was military it fell under ITAR. Commercial and dual-use components...

    The Superposed style shotguns use an inertia block to set the trigger for the second barrel to prevent doubling. This link details a Citori but they're similar:

    If anybody can make this work I believe it will be the current administration. The one that comes after, probably not so much.

    Political correctness hindered Project Exile the last time, we'll see what happens this time.

    The older Brownings have symbols, asterisks and etc, to indicate choke. Check page 11 from this old manual:

    Tell them you'll pay the $4k if they pay for all your downtime/overtime/schedule recovery costs.

    Looks like the AG is rebooting Project Exile. Might not affect the school shooting situations but would definitely help places like Chicago.

    Select FAQ from the brownish bar at the top of the screen. Search for, attach photo, or similar.

    The BATF goes back and forth with the political winds. Pistol braces, bump stocks, etc have been legal, then illegal, then legal, and so on.

    I see this as willful ignorance. I would suspect nearly every media person by now knows the difference between a M-16 and a AR-15 since they've been reminded/educated many, many times.

    But...

    Maybe Virginia should reboot Project Exile before they start anything else?

    The pilots in those 737 MAX aircraft that went down probably wished they were sitting in 707 cockpit.
