    Home stretch

    Alright. Some progress. I understand now why some people say that BLO dries quickly. I have used BLO in the past, and it does take 24-48h to get there, but that is nothing in comparison to the 3-7...

    There's a whole lotta truth in that statement. I got it out of morbid curiosity, and so I could differentiate fouling from decay. No sense scrubbing the rest of the 'fouling' out if it's actually...

    Hey Bruce, I appreciate your input as well as others.

    I grew really weary of the other borescope. It's not really a buy one cry once because the Teslong (proven) is cheap. So I got a Teslong.

    Wow! That's gotta be wild.

    So in an effort to vaslidate this finish recipe, and after applying the 2nd coat, I glanced at the handguard and remembered it had a spot of bare wood in a small...

    First coat of oil is a go.

    It took forever. The wood was thirsty, and this museum recipe likes to separate in a matter of seconds. I'm starting to wonder if the beeswax might be there as a binder....

    that bolt was moving way fast. Way too fast. Locking lugs look fine, no abnormal wear there except the impact marks from hitting the receiver really hard. You can tell that FN made the bolt very...

    It was new to me too. I went looking for more of the same as described by waw44, found SVT40 slamfires which mentioned FN49s and out of battery discharges, and that lead me to... fn49 out of battery...

    Can you get pics of the back of the bolt and the locking surfaces? It looks a lot like when somebody uses reloads that are way too hot in an SVT40 and the rear of the receiver gets bent from...

    For sure. The recipe was frequently posted by Frank *Guisan* Van Binnendijk. He was a frequent poster (and founder) on the Swiss Rifles message boards. You can find his posts here and GB as well. He...

    I thiiiiiiiink I did it.

    I started out by treating all the really bad spots with oxalic acid on a qtip. THis took a few hours. This left the stock splotchy as hell, but I was able to witness the...

    This is incredibly clever! Unfortunately i do not have a vac sealer or tank large enough to boil this stock; double unfortunate that my rust conversion steam chamber has a 4" ID which is too small....

    Help saving a moldy swiss relic

    Hey all. Posted this on another forum but no input from there. Hoping I might get some luck here.

    Picked up a swiss k11 which looked fine externally, bore is one step off 'brand new' and receiver...

    Thank you. I find it quite pretty myself. I don't wish to make it new so much as make sure there's not any active decay. Not going to refinish it, just want to convert the currently active rust to...

  17. Today, on "This Old Wood"

    Well, the forestock is not looking promising. I see substantial work ahead. I see enough work ahead, that I ordered a set from Prestigious Wood Stocks to use for shooting.

    Also, this poor thing...

    Sticky: New-ish from Utah

    Honestly couldn't tell you. According to my log book I got this one back in 2014 and I believe the range with steel closed in 2016 so that is stretching my memory quite a bit. I think if it were a...

    I have had this rifle for about seven years, during which time it has had about 60 rounds of PPU through it.

    I have never accuracy tested it, merely shot at steel gongs...
