I've Been Bad

papabear, Thanks for sharing the photo and information. I am like you; I like to get the accessories for each rifle. After a while, I was spending too much for multiple accessories, so I slowed down a bit. On the RC rifles I do get the repo slings, cleaning rod, locking screws, and muzzle covers. La...

I've Been Bad

carguy, I forgot to remove that for the photos, LOL! That is a German, Rubber Muzzle Cover. In approx. 1939-1940, they replaced the steel Muzzle Cover that had the flip-up cover with the Sight Protector that clipped over the front sight. The Rubber Cover was developed for to keep dust, dirt, snow, e...

Astra Constable II

himmel,

The price sounds about right for gunshops. Do you think you can talk him down to $200 and then you would have a great buy!

M&P Pistols

nbender, The Phosphate finish is much the same as Parkerizing. If I remember correct, the Parkerizing was a trade name by the inventor. papabear, I had a S&W Victory I bought last year when I was in Washington State, but I traded it to good friend of mine that likes nice revolvers better than I do. ...

Just being cranky I guess

himmel, You did NOT miss anything! Whoever the writer was needs some instructions. First, ANYONE carrying a firearm, needs to have training, and practice a little. If they don't intend to need it, don't want to practice, but still have some type protection, they need a revolver, in my opinion, and i...

Astra Constable II

himmel, I had one years ago and it was a well made, accurate pistol. Back then I could not afford a Walther PP, but the Astra was priced where I could buy it. I did not shoot it a lot, but everytime I shot it, it fired and placed the bullet near where I was aiming (most of the error was mine and not...

Grip Question: Thumbrest or Not?

Either the tunmbrest or flat work for me, but I like the looks of the flat grips better......I guess it is more military looking.

Military Rifle Finishes

volfandan, The finish on the K98k was blued also. The early rifles had a high quality, dull military blue finish with very good polishing on the steel. As the war progressed, and the need to speed up production, the polishing became less and less, but the bluing still pretty good until late in the w...

RELOADING

Norm is right, you can't beat Lyman products! I have Lyman, RCBS and Lee reloading products and each is for my particular purpose. I enjoy reloading a lot! Some folks think it is a "chore" to reload, but for me it is relaxing. I only reload when I am alone, I don't want distractions that could cause...

Cleaned Up bnz 43 K98k

Norm, Thanks for the comment, I think it cleaned up pretty good myself. All I need are the Locking screws and the Front sight Cover. I should pick these up Monday from another friend of mine and it will be complete. The bore shines like a mirror and I think it will shoot well too. As soon as I can g...
