    If you (or someone else) decides to restore this to original mil spec, don't throw away the shortened stock. I can't bring it across the border, or I'd be in the market myself, but there's a number...

    I did indeed! Very grateful to those who made it happen. I've been bingeing the forum ever since. Wish I'd been on some years ago, when people were selling Ross parts like they were Remingturd...

    Well, it's going on three weeks and still nothing but the sound of crickets in the distance, so I think I should get the message that I'm not considered "the right sort" to join the club. :thdown:

    Regarding the safe issue, how solid is the surface upon which it stands? Not an old wooden floor, or worse, carpet? I'm thinking that changing the loading inside the safe has caused it to lozenge a...

    Likely Libya. During the pre-Kaddafi/Gaddafi/Qaddafi monarchy, Libya was friendly to the West. Britain even had forces there, both training in desert conditions and proving equipment. AND, the only...

    And it works very well!

    In all fairness, I can't conclusively state that the screen shot thingy wouldn't work. Since I have no idea what it is, I never tried it. All I did was try my usual "right...

    Tried the link. Filled out the registration form. Clicked "register". Nothing happens. I sent the email as per above. Still waiting for a response.

    rossrifle.com

    Does anyone here have any insights on how to view the old rossrifle.com forum? I keep coming across references to it in various posts that suggest it's full of information (if a little quiet), but...

    Update: I took your advice. I gurgled "snipping tool" and waded through some online tutorials. Worked great - now I'm a certified computer geek! Thanks again, Jim.

    The only snipping tools I know anything about are my aviation snips. :lol: However, I'm going to try looking up "snipping tool" and see if I can make it work for me, thanks Jim.

    You're absolutely right, I do see the poor fit of the buttplate. I fully agree that it's far from perfect, and the wood can never be returned to 100% original, BUT.... I still maintain that the stock...

    Wish I had that "problem"! The wood on that rifle easily could be refinished to a much better standard, and it comes in .280, a far more interesting caliber than the everyday .303. And, it's by far...

    Looking at their "price estimates" in relation to what they're offering, and knowing the downside of auctions, I doubt that these would end up being worthwhile for Canadian customers. The only...

    If it's a one-time thing and you don't do a lot of work on older machinery, then the expenditure wouldn't be justified. On the other hand, if you do tinker with any smaller metal parts that are...

    I understand your point, and I can't fault your logic, but then it wouldn't be an authentic .280 Ross. If I were going to build a custom rifle with a new chambering and only using a Ross action, I'd...

    For $35 more, they'll give you the same barrel with a .287 bore, for those who want to re-barrel an M-10 Stalker. Not cheap, but then neither is a good M-10.

    Lothar Walther makes blanks more than big enough, but they're almost that price not contoured, and only in stainless.
