    cplsteve: There is a slight inconsistency between some of these memos. The memo in post#1 (RIA) says that they can't strip and examine all ERA rifles because costs would be prohibitive. Yet the...

    I'm pretty sure this has come up in the past and is related to re-barreled Eddystones. Something about excess force being used in the process resulting in cracks. I don't think it has been suggested...

    Refer to Yuschenko, 2016, pg 101. Two distinct markings. I don't believe there is a more up to date reference than Alex's book.

    I believe Factory #74 (Izhevsk) Sniper barrels have a circle-C stamped on them. Like the Tula CH it can be poorly stamped or faint. Also, as with Tula guns, it can be present on non-scoped rifles.

    Michael: The lock is probably from a Portugese contract Snider, given the date. The rifling does look unusual and you should try for a better photo. Are there proofs, etc, on the usual spot on the...

    Hambone: I used a company called "Borderview" but I can't recall if they work both ways. My recollection is that it was around $200 per rifle all in (a nice '16 Mk III, and a fair Ishapore Mk I**IP)....

    Rayg: I recall your old thread from 2013 about this rifle. In that one you showed a closeup of the upper bolt handle with what appears to be electro-pencilled crossed flags or similar. I was curious...

    Jack: How snug was the forend in the draws area? The crack doesn't appear to directly affect the structure of the draws but also can't see impressions that the sear lugs normally make in the wood.

    Jack: I'll reply- not as a repair expert but as a collector/shooter. I find cracks in this area on so many rifles and some don't seem to warrant full-on repair- just squeeze in some glue, clamp it...

    I also cringed when he mentioned "grinding" on the bolt lug. I hate to be too critical when a guy makes an effort to pass on info in a youtube video (I've found some incredibly useful) but newcomers...

    Staring with the Snider it became pretty clear that the cartridge is probably the key component of the system. Comparisons of the LE with other types should probably start with ballistics. As we all...

    Old Canuck: That sounds big at the muzzle- Ordnance Issue Sniders have progressive depth rifling which, I believe, is only 0.005" deep at the muzzle. In any case, you have a few choices. You can...
