    Yep, I shot it. The Mk 4 .38 Webley I also got actually shot better. The enfield shot way low, and had some cycling issues. Plan on breaking it down and thoroughly cleaning it.

    M2 on left is aftermarket, usually not reliable.

    AYP it is believed to be FN manufactured for post war European contract, IIRC. They are excellent mags, and I have several. (CTD was selling...
  3. The lowly British.38/200 Revolver Cartridge.. Not as underpowered as you might think!

    Having just done an extensive article for SASS's Cowboy Chronicle about the .38 (Long) Colt cartridge being the most mis-understood and underrated cartridge of the American West, it got me interested...

    An older gentleman came into the gun shop with the 38 Webley. Said it was his father's for many years. He did not know where he got it, but he had it in the 50s when the seller was a kid. He...

    Picked up an extra latch spring from Gun Parts Corp for both the Webley and Enfield. That is the only part I ever had to replace on my prior English break tops. About $13 each, so good to have on...

    Any way to tell its year of birth, or whether it is a Mk 1* or MK1**. I have heard that the Mk 1** had some safety issues.

    Thanks in advance. I am pretty well versed in US martial firearms, but...

    Thanks! I am guessing it is a MK1* then. It is really tight. Lots of patina and external wear, but bore is awesome. I've got a few rounds of the 174 FMJs that came witrh it, but I am going to...

    No Enfield stamped on the right side. Maybe an HAC, Albion, or GCT? I know little about these, except what I have read. Serial is "R8116." Numbers match. Has "DI**" on right side where I have...

    The .38/200 loading with the 200 grain long lead bullet is so marginally stable that it tumbles immediately. The light 145s can go through, but the 200s rarely did. The long nosed 174 FMJs tumbled...

    I agree that it isn't the best candidate. Cans work best with sub-sonic rounds. We had IMI 157 grain subsonic 9mm for our suppressed UZIs and MP5s. 300 Black Out ARs with 16" barrels are best with...

    I think it was for a suppressor. Looks like the thread patterns I have seen on Cobray/Sionics suppressor threaded barrels in the 70s/80s. Could have been a Spec Ops carbine. I remember years ago...

    Wow! Just research and found it was 7 years ago I did mu first 300 BLK build. It had a M4 profile barrel, and CAR15 handguards. I did not document its fall from grace when I found it was expensive...

    I diod a 7.62x39 build a few years ago. I liked it, though it was not even close to being as accurate as my 5.56 M4gery, even with my Nosler Varmagedon 124 grain reloads. The biggest reason I...

    I think the 300 BLK (and the newer 30 HAM'R) are the best of both worlds: The thump of the 7.62x39 .30 caliber, with the accuracy and modular capability of the AR platform, and uses the common 5.56...

    Yep, I think that, unless you have a short barrel and/or a "can", the sub-sonics don't do much in a 16" carbine that the 110/115/125s do way better. BTW, Ballistically, the 300 BLK (7.62x35) is a...
  25. Drank the .300 Black Out Kool-Aid (Again)

    About 8 or 9 years ago, I built up a 300 BLK AR. I liked it, but brass and bullets were scarce and terribly expensive, so I gave up and sold the 300 upper and went back to 5.56 M4gery.

    Well, I...
