    So, if you are confident that your aiming and holding was reasonably consistent, 40% of your rounds were not hitting a target about what, 20 inches wide at 50 yards? That's more like a shotgun than...

    I've had a box of N95 masks in the back of the van for several years. Just noticed them again recently and gave a few to likely older people I know. Around here, with a mega-thrust quake overdue,...

    I've never understood why the S.A.C. was apparently so fascinated by this Hensoldt. As far as I can tell there was nothing to distinguish it from an Oigee, Bock or Goerz etc.; mechanically or...

    What a pity Sir John Harvey-Jones didn't make it there for an episode of "The Troubleshooter"! But then there were probably hundreds like it to choose from, all going down the same path to oblivion....

    Very interesting comments gentlemen. As far as serial number lists go, I started an Aldis one back around 2008(?), ValleySniper took over the job and I have a version from him dated 2010. I'm...

    Interesting; did you do it? What causes the missing features and the peculiar distortions, while even dents in the woodwork appear?

    That's a very nice in photo in need of a good cropping. ;) FastStone Image Viewer is my suggestion.

    As for the butt plate there must be some wanker chiselling them out, but where?

    I see! I used a bull nose cone at the headstock and a live center at the tailstock which happened to have a convenient cone on it as well. Of course those were MkI's so the ocular retaining ring...

    Ah, yes, "the British beaches..." Were there two or three? I can never quite remember. :p
