    Tried different ammo? The bolt on my new RRA 5.56 carbine would not close on PPU ammo, tried some Sadu and it was fine. The PPU (all 1000 rounds!) had a slight bulge where pressing the bullet...

    Hi All,

    Was wondering if anyone here has experience with Precision Brand's "Tool Black"? I'd never heard of it before today, it's not *made* for guns, but it appears that it might hold up. Their...

    Jim, how much of a job was your conversion? I really like the looks of these rifles but wouldn't consider buying one if limited to "unobtanium" ammo. The 9mm is super cheap right now too. I looked...

    A Winchester Model 1907 SLR, until someone on the Marlin Forum posted about it. Looked on GB and there are a few there, running around $450 - $900. Pretty low prices IMO. Kinda looks like a baby BAR....

    Ahh, yes. Back in the days when common sense was more common than drug use in employees. When I went to work in the refinery, all that stuff was "optional". Now you're automagically fired for...

    Weird, there's a seller from France that sells on "US" E-Bay all the time, all kinds of M-1 Carbine parts. What would make magazines any different from other gun parts?
