    I did this with a Kokolus reproduction M1903 stock and got good results. I would not do this with an original military stock.

    Get a big garbage bag, long enough to hold the entire stock in it. ...

    I had a can of that. KA73 brass is pretty hard and took extra time to remove the crimp. Wasn't all that accurate in a bolt gun so I pulled it down and shot up the powder and bullets. The brass...

    Hi Ridolpho,

    Kroil and hot/cold have been applied, so far without the piston coming loose. More of the same may take a long time, but patience is necessary. The gun is slightly unusual, an all...

    SVT-40 Gas Piston Removal

    Have a SVT-40 with a gas piston that does not want to come off. Yes I have a Soviet-era wrench for it, but I am hesitant to apply too much torque lest the head of the piston snap off like an old...

    I have a pinned stock that came on a CMP Greek return that has only a P in the usual location. Stock came with dings from use and the gun was a mixmaster with an A3 rear band and trigger guard and...

    This may be a contrary point of view, but if by collector grade you mean you have a CMP Collector Grade certificate for this rifle, then one question to ask would be: why put anything on it at all? ...

    Regarding that SA op rod. If the finish wear matches the rest of the rifle, then it may be original. Here is how you can check.

    Examine the face on the back side of the op rod hooks. This...

    Well there are two different mechanisms in the M1 that sort of oppose each other, and either can cause a failure of a new round to be stripped when the bolt cycles--a malfunction commonly referred to...

    Interesting idea. As the hammer is rotating on a pin, what counts is to reduce its Moment of Intertia, more than just its weight. Moment of Inertia is in rotational motion what ordinary mass is in...

    Barrel looks like it spent time in the sand/bead blaster before getting reparked. Probably not arsenal work. Same may be true of op-rod. But in this day and age if it has all USGI wood and parts...

    That looks USGI to me. The Greek process is a bluing, not a parkerizing, and they dunk them in a tank without doing disassembly on small parts. I just cleaned up a HRA SG that had the original...

    M1 Loose Lower Band

    Recently-arrived SG. Overall good shape, but the lower band had taken a beating by those Greek armorers. Came with a solid pin, which I replaced with a new roll pin. But the band still moves. ...

    Well this is off topic and a few days old but the board is kinda slow.

    At the risk of being a contrarian, it seems to me that in many areas there is less regulation now then there was 30, 40, or...

    I'd go with the stock fit being off. On my rifles there's no room for the clip latch pin to travel when the receiver is on the stock. But if the stock fit can't be helped, then I'd go with the new...

    Stuck Clip Latch Pin--Ideas?

    This is on initial takedown of recently-received SG HRA. Overall a reasonable example of a SG, but the Greeks did give it the dunk in that tank of black stuff--I think it is some kind of blueing....

    I do believe that the M1 is on the ATF list of rifles for which barrel importation is a no-no. Even re-importation of spare USGI barrels is verboten. So this would be a boon for the domestic barrel...
