    The Porter Turret Rifle 40 Cal is fascinating, but beyond my $ reach. I'm always intrigued by the different ways people have tried to solve a common problem.

    Reading through all these posts I’m struck by something and I’m struggling to find a way to express it while remaining respectful to all view points. But I fear the nuns at Our Lady of Grace lacked...

    That's pretty cool. There was a series of bunkers south of where I was stationed in West Germany that our unit sometimes used as an HQ for field exercises. They still had the holes for I assume...

    Check your powder for foreign objects

    Dumped a can of IMR 4895 in my hopper and I see something poking out of the top. Tweezered it out and it's a piece of light gauge wire. Glad it didn't get into the powder dispensing mechanism. What's...

    Aloha! Generally speaking cleanup is fine. But when the bluing and sandpaper comes out you have to consider why you own the rifle. If I own it, it’s gotta be a shooter, no safe queens. But that is a...

    Another no vote for HXP. Extraction from my 03A1 was problematic to put it mildly. I'm lucky that I stockpiled all that Greek ball when I was shooting Garands alot. Tons of it going around the gun...

    My mistake was using the term "scout rifle". I should have said "Hey, I turned my Swede 38 into a back country hiking rifle." Assuming there's any back country left when the fires go out, I'll expand...

    Swede Mod 38 as a scout rifle?

    Okay so at 8.9 lbs it doesn't technically qualify as a scout if Col. Cooper's standards are to be applied. But since I'm the one carrying it, the colonel can get stuffed. Waiting on my sling kinda...
