Re: 22 Rifles

Papabear, I keep a list of things to look out for and have added the CZ452 to it. I have read many good things about them and it is known to be very accurate. Unfortunately, my list is always much larger than available funds so it may be a while before one is added to my arsenal. Thanks for the reco...

Re: 22 Rifles

Just bought my first .22 rifle and I am 62! Decided to get something for plinking since I am spending more time at the range lately. Got a Marlin 795, installed a Mcarbo spring kit and a Simmons 3-9 x 40 scope. Zeroed it for 75 yards and it holds really nice groups. Now I am getting the urge for a b...

I am the proud owner of a '45 Izhevsk M-44. I love being the guy with the loudest, flame throwing pig sticker on the line! LMAO

Re: Best place from which to buy my P-64?

I bought mine from Classic and got one that was like new. I have heard mixed reviews but I think some of the complaints come from people that expect more than is described.
I have heard only good things about DK and will look to them first for any C&R purchases in the future.

Re: Red Army Elite 9x18 Mak - Range Report

Mine is made in Poland. I will say that the Red Army Elite brass fired from my P-64 held up well and was fine for reloading. I have a few different loads I hope to try in the coming weeks to see what works best. I was very impressed with the quality of the brass used in these rounds. The PRVI Partiz...

Re: Mystery 'chamber wear'

I was replying to Brehon1. Even when all of the cosmoline has been removed, on most Mosin-Nagants it will be difficult to release the bolt after firing even on an empty chamber. Polishing some surfaces will help, but the procedure I described works on any bolt. Polishing parts on old weapons is frow...

Re: Mystery 'chamber wear'

Next time you fire the Mosin, try pulling straight back on the safety before trying to release the bolt. It will cock the hammer and allow the bolt to open much easier. It is how the Russians were trained to cycle the gun in order to keep the sights on target between shots.

Re: How do you clear a double feed or other malfunctions?

The few that I have had were easily cleared by dropping the mag and racking the slide once or twice. If one round is sticking out a little, tilt the gun so gravity helps.

Re: Armscor M5 not ejecting high brass hulls

Have you thoroughly cleaned and inspected the chamber? You might also check the extractor to make sure it can move freely. There is a small possibility that the extractor is out more than it is supposed to be while gripping the brass and binding. It would have to be extremely dirty or damaged for th...

Re: Armscor M5 not ejecting high brass hulls

I am not an expert but will offer what I can. Perhaps it is the shells and trying another manufacturer would confirm or rule that out. Nothing these days seems to be made as well as in the past. Another thing to check would be for damage or marks in the chamber. Any rough spots would indicate that a...

Re: Newby with double fire issue

For my daughter, the best home defense gun is a .38 special. No hassles. Simply point it and squeeze the trigger. I would keep things as simple as possible for anyone not well versed in firearms. She can handle it very well and I am reasonably sure that she would be okay should she need to use it. A...

Re: Newby with double fire issue

The DA trigger pull on my P-64 is too high for my scale and probably about 15 lbs. With the SA trigger pull at 3.0 lbs, the difference is extreme compared to most other pistols. Even so, I have not found the SA pull to be too light. That said, I do not think that I would like it any lighter. Good lu...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

I admit that I have a tough time removing my PolishIron grips but I have attributed it to the arthritis in my hands. I still manage to get them off every time. Sometimes they require a little "peeling" away to allow them to clear the frame before trying to slide them off. Darned shame you guys cut t...
